Inmarsat shall be deemed to have received and retained the benefit of a Tax Credit when such a claim for such credit has been agreed and accepted by the relevant tax authority.

For the purposes of this Clause 17, a person associated with Customer includes any subcontractor of Customer.
18.1. The construction, validity and performance of this Agreement and all matters arising from or connected with it are governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of England without regard to its conflict of laws provisions.
18.2. If so requested in writing by Inmarsat, Customer shall, within thirty (30) days of such request, appoint an agent for service of process or any other document or proceedings in England in relation to the subject matter of this Agreement, and shall notify Inmarsat forthwith.

If Inmarsat determines that neither repairing nor replacing the Equipment is commercially reasonable upon return of the Equipment to Inmarsat, refund all sums paid by Customer to Inmarsat with respect to the nonconforming Equipment.

For any repairs requested after the warranty period, Inmarsat will provide a quote for such repairs and if the quote is accepted and the work authorized by Customer, the repairs will be performed at Customer’s expense.
8.7. The warranty under this Paragraph 8 does not extend to any defect resulting from the Equipment being altered, improperly installed by a third party or which fails or is damaged after delivery due to accident, act of God, shipment or handling, or due to storage, operation, use, or maintenance in a manner or environment which does not conform to the Equipment manufacturer's instructions or specifications provided by Inmarsat to Customer from time to time.
8.8.

1 Basis of Contract
1.1 From time to time, Inmarsat may request Contractor (each a “Party”) on a non-exclusive basis to perform installation and related services (“Services”) for Inmarsat as set out in a purchase order for the supply of Services (the “Work Order”). The Work Order constitutes an offer by Inmarsat to purchase Services from Contractor in accordance with these terms and conditions (“Terms”) and as specified in the Statement of Work contained in exhibits 2 to 4 of the Work Order (the “SOW”).
1.2 The Work Order shall be deemed to be accepted upon Contractor signing and returning a copy of the Work Order, at which point this Agreement shall come into existence (“Effective Date”). For the purpose of these Terms, “Agreement” shall mean the agreement between Inmarsat and the Supplier for the supply of Services in accordance with these Terms and the accompanying Work Order(s).
1.3 The Agreement shall continue from the Effective Date until terminated by Inmarsat or Contractor upon sixty (60) calendar days prior written notice or as otherwise provided herein.
2 Scope of Services
2.1 Contractor agrees to perform the Services in a professional manner and in accordance with the provisions of this Agreement.
2.2 Notwithstanding the foregoing, Inmarsat is under no obligation to request Contractor to perform Services, and Contractor is under no obligation to accept a request for Services from Inmarsat.
2.3 Other services, and rates, may be added from time to time and Inmarsat reserves the right, at its option, to request that additional Work Orders for any additional products or services be added to this Agreement, pursuant to the mutual agreement of the parties. In the event that a Work Order is initiated or revised orally, Inmarsat will issue a follow-up Work Order (or amended Work Order as appropriate) to the Contractor for execution in accordance with the terms and conditions of this Agreement.
2.4 Contractor shall be solely responsible for Contractor’s personnel observing Inmarsat’s or Inmarsat’s customer’s site rules and regulations, including but not limited to: security requirements, use of safety equipment and safety procedures, proper grooming, appropriate dress, and working in harmony with all others while present at such site.

3 Invoices and Payments
3.1 Upon receipt of an invoice, Inmarsat will remit payment to Contractor within sixty (60) calendar days.

3.3 Contractor shall maintain accurate records to verify and support any invoices (electronic or otherwise) generated in the event of any disputes. Contractor’s satisfactory performance and invoicing for Services hereunder will be in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles and practices uniformly and consistently applied in a format that will permit review.

4.2 Contractor hereto agrees to pay, and to hold Inmarsat harmless against, any penalty, interest, additional tax or other charge that may be levied or assessed as a result of the delay or failure of the Contractor for any reason to pay any tax or file any return or information required by law, rule or regulation or by this Agreement to be paid or filed by Contractor.
5.1 Termination/ Rescheduling of Work Orders
5.1.1 Subject to Article 5.3 below, Inmarsat may terminate or reschedule any Work Order immediately by written notice to Contractor, for any reason or for no reason, and without penalty or liability. Such notice shall specify the effective date of termination or the reschedule date.
5.1.2 Notwithstanding the foregoing, if Inmarsat terminates or reschedules a Work Order while Contractor is performing such Work Order, Inmarsat will be liable to pay to Contractor all costs reasonably and actually incurred by Contractor in relation to the terminated Work Order. Inmarsat will only be liable to pay such reasonable costs incurred up to the time that such Work Order is terminated by Inmarsat.

5.1.3 In case Inmarsat has ordered hardware with Contractor, Inmarsat will be obliged to purchase the hardware when Contractor has ordered it with their supplier. In such cases Contractor is obliged to deliver these goods to Inmarsat.
If Contractor is in default of its obligations under this Agreement or any Work Order hereunder and such default is not promptly remedied by Contractor after written notice thereof by Inmarsat, Inmarsat may, in addition to all other rights and remedies provided by law or this Agreement, terminate this Agreement and/or any Work Order which may be affected by such default.
5.3 Consequences of Termination or Cancellation
5.3.1 In the event that Inmarsat terminates this Agreement or any Work Order hereunder pursuant to any provision of this Agreement, in no event will Inmarsat be liable for any indirect, special, incidental, reliance or consequential damages resulting from such termination, including without limitation, loss of business profits.

5.3.4 Within ten (10) calendar days of termination, cancellation or other expiration of this Agreement, Contractor shall return to Inmarsat all papers, written materials, properties, other materials and other information furnished to Contractor by Inmarsat under this Agreement. Each Party shall provide the other such reasonable assistance as may be necessary for an orderly, non-disruptive transition subsequent to termination.
5.3.5 The terms, conditions and warranties contained in this Agreement that are intended to survive the performance hereof by either or both Parties hereunder shall so survive the completion of performance, cancellation or termination of this Agreement or any Work Order hereunder.
6. Excusable Delays
Neither Party to this Agreement shall be liable for its failure to perform any of its obligations hereunder during any time period in which its, or its subcontractors' or vendors', performance is delayed by fire, flood, extreme weather conditions precluding performance, lack of availability of equipment from Inmarsat, war, embargo, strike or riot, or the intervention of any government authority (“Excusable Delay”), provided the cause of such Excusable Delay is beyond the reasonable control and without the fault or negligence of the non-performing Party, its subcontractors or vendors and further providing that the Party suffering such Excusable Delay immediately notifies the other Party of the delay. In the event of an Excusable Delay the delivery requirements for such performance shall be extended by a mutually agreed upon term in writing. Notwithstanding the above, Inmarsat may at its option, without liability other than to reimburse Contractor for actually incurred reasonable costs and expenses to the date of termination, terminate any Work Order that is delayed more than ten (10) calendar days because of any Excusable Delay.

7.2 If during the twelve (12) months after the completion of the installation performed by Contractor for Inmarsat, Inmarsat determines that there is a problem which constitutes a breach of warranty, Inmarsat will notify Contractor and Contractor shall promptly investigate such breach and advise Inmarsat of Contractor's planned corrective action after which Contractor shall promptly re-perform by providing other personnel or take such other action as may be required to correct such breach of warranty at no additional charge to Inmarsat. If such breach of warranty causes Inmarsat’s customer’s system to be affected or has/may cause some form of structural damage to Inmarsat’s customer’s premises, then Contractor will remedy such breach of warranty to Inmarsat's reasonable satisfaction within four (4) calendar days from Inmarsat's notice to Contractor. If such breach of warranty is not causing Inmarsat’s customer’s system to be affected, and does not pose any threat to the structural integrity of Inmarsat’s customer’s premises, then Contractor will remedy such breach of warranty to Inmarsat’s reasonable satisfaction within ten (10) business days from Inmarsat’s notice to Contractor.
7.3 Contractor will deliver the work as stated in the SOW and any approved additional work by performing acceptance tests in the presence of Inmarsat’s customer’s representative. Inmarsat’s customer shall have discretion as to accept the Work Order upon completion. Upon acceptance of the Work Order, the warranty set forth in Article 7.2 above shall apply.

Contractor will protect, defend and indemnify and hold Inmarsat harmless from and against any and all claims, demands, causes of action, loss, damage, expense or liability of every type and character (individually and collectively “Claims”) that may result by reason of any such infringement, provided further that Inmarsat provides prompt written notice to Contractor of any Claim.
