No single or partial exercise of a right or remedy provided by this Agreement or by law prevents a further exercise of the right or remedy or the exercise of another right or remedy.
16.5. Entire Agreement. This Agreement constitutes the entire agreement between the Parties and supersedes any prior understandings and communications, whether written or oral, between the Parties relating to the matters addressed herein.

Each Party agrees that it shall have no remedies in respect of any (non-fraudulent) statement, representation, assurance or warranty (whether made innocently or negligently) that is not set out in this Agreement, and no claim for innocent or negligent misrepresentation based on any statement in this Agreement.
16.6. Invalidity. Should any provision of this Agreement be found to be invalid, illegal or unenforceable under the laws of any relevant jurisdiction in any respect, the invalid, illegal or unenforceable aspects of such provision shall be given no effect and shall be deemed not to be included in this Agreement without invalidating any of the remaining provisions of this Agreement. The Parties shall forthwith enter into good faith negotiations to amend this Agreement in such a way that, as amended, is valid, legal, enforceable and, to the maximum extent possible, reflects the intended effect of the invalid, illegal or unenforceable provision.
16.7. Relationship of Parties. The Parties intend that the relationship created between them by this Agreement shall be as independent contractors. This Agreement is not to be construed in any way as creating any partnership, principal‑agent, master‑servant, joint venture or other similar relationship between the Parties. Except as expressly authorised under this Agreement, Customer will not resell or otherwise make available Products to any third party.
16.8. Rights of Third Parties. A third party that is not a Party to this Agreement has no rights under the Contracts (Rights of Third Parties) Act 1999 or otherwise to enforce any term of this Agreement, except that an Inmarsat Indemnified Party may enforce the rights and benefits granted to it under this Agreement. The rights of the Parties to terminate, rescind or agree any amendment, waiver or settlement under this Agreement are not subject to the consent of any other person.
16.9. Network Data. In supplying the Products, Inmarsat collects certain data from the Inmarsat Network and the Satellite Terminals which connect to the Inmarsat Network, including without limitation set-up, environmental, location, technical, operational and other data (“Network Data”). Inmarsat may use such Network Data (excluding any personal data or the contents of any transmissions) whenever collected on a standalone or aggregated basis (including in conjunction with any other data), for its business purposes (such as to provide, develop and improve Inmarsat’s products and the Inmarsat Network) and/or to be shared or sold to third parties. Inmarsat shall also be entitled to associate such Network Data with the identity of the customer and/or details of the vessel or aircraft on which the Satellite Terminal is located and disclose the same.
17.1. Customer shall comply with all applicable laws, statutes, regulations and codes relating to anti-bribery and anti-corruption, including to the Bribery Act 2010 and the US Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (“Relevant Requirements”).
17.2. Without prejudice to the generality of the foregoing, Customer shall:

(b) have and shall maintain in place throughout the term of this Agreement its own policies and procedures, including to adequate procedures under the Bribery Act 2010, to ensure compliance with the Relevant Requirements, and will enforce them where appropriate;
(c) promptly report to Inmarsat any request or demand for any undue financial or other advantage of any kind received by Customer in connection with the performance of this Agreement; and
(d) immediately notify Inmarsat (in writing) if a foreign public official becomes an officer or employee of Customer or acquires a direct or indirect interest in Customer (and Customer warrants that it has no foreign public officials as officers, employees or direct or indirect owners at the date of this Agreement).
17.3. For the purposes of this Clause 17, the meaning of adequate procedures and foreign public official whether a person is associated with another person shall be determined in accordance with section 7(2) of the Bribery Act 2010 (and any guidance issued under section 9 of that Act), sections 6(5) and 6(6) of that Act and section 8 of that Act respectively. For the purposes of this Clause 17, a person associated with Customer includes any subcontractor of Customer.

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. The address of Inmarsat for service of such process and any other such document or proceedings shall be those specified in Clause 15 (Notices), unless and until any alternative addresses are notified to Customer for that purpose.
“Equipment” means any equipment supplied by Inmarsat under this Agreement. For the avoidance of doubt, Equipment is a Product for the purposes of this Agreement, and these Equipment Specific terms are a Product Data Sheet.
2. Delivery/Freight Charges/Risk of Loss
2.1. Unless otherwise agreed to by the Parties prior to shipment, all Equipment purchased, rented or leased by Customer will be shipped FCA [Inmarsat location] (INCOTERMS 2010). Customer will pay all costs incurred by Inmarsat to ship the Equipment to Customer’s designated location. Equipment will be deemed delivered to Customer upon passing of the Equipment to a carrier. Inmarsat will endeavor to comply with the delivery terms reasonably requested by Customer.
3. Partial Shipments
3.1. Customer agrees to accept partial shipments unless otherwise specified in advance, particularly in cases where the Equipment is temporarily out of stock. In the event that ordered Equipment is not available, Inmarsat will maintain a backorder list compiled by date. As backordered Equipment is received from the Supplier, Inmarsat will fill orders based on age of order. Customer is responsible for shipping charges for each partial shipment.
4.1. Title to the Equipment will transfer from Inmarsat to Customer upon later of Inmarsat’s receipt of the full sale price and any applicable taxes, fees, and freight and other charges and placement by Inmarsat (or by the manufacturer if drop shipped) of the Equipment with the carrier for shipment to Customer. Until such time, Inmarsat will retain title to the Equipment and have a security interest therein. Customer will keep Equipment to which Inmarsat has retained title free from any liens, charges, claims or encumbrances and will execute all such documents as may be reasonably required by Inmarsat to evidence or perfect its security interest.
5. Inspection and Acceptance
5.1 Customer has the right to inspect Equipment that has been tendered for acceptance. Customer may require Inmarsat to repair or replace nonconforming Equipment at no additional charge. Customer must exercise its rights under this Paragraph within thirty (30) days after: (i) receipt of the Equipment; or (ii) the earlier of when a defect is discovered or should have been discovered; provided, however, that Customer must exercise the rights under this Paragraph before any substantial change occurs in the condition of the defective item, unless the change is due to the defect in the item.
6. Refunds/Restocking Fees
6.1. There will be no refunds for used Equipment returned to Inmarsat. If Customer returns unused Equipment to Inmarsat in its original package, in its original condition, and within thirty (30) days of delivery, Inmarsat will refund to Customer eighty five percent (85%) of the purchase price, the remaining fifteen percent (15%) of the purchase price representing a restocking fee. Customer will bear all shipment and insurance costs related to such return shipment. Any returns must be coordinated through Customer’s Account Manager.
7. Liability for Data Use
7.1. Customer shall be fully liable for payment for any and all data charges accrued through the use of the Equipment [by its Service Providers and/or Subscribers]. It is the sole obligation and responsibility of Customer to ensure that all Equipment and associated computer hardware and software are properly configured (including with respect to any services with which they are used) and that only authorized users are permitted access to the Equipment. No credits or refunds will be provided by Inmarsat for data (or voice) usage that is alleged to be accidental, inadvertent, or unauthorized.
8.1. Inmarsat warrants that the Equipment will be free from material defects in workmanship and materials for a period of one year.

8.4. Subject to the terms of this Schedule, Inmarsat will during the warranty period where a valid warranty claim has been raised, at its sole option either repair or replace the nonconforming Equipment containing material defects in workmanship and materials. 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. Subject to the terms of this Schedule, the remedies set out under this Paragraph 8 are Customer’s sole remedy in the event of a warranty claim.
8.5. All repairs on warrantable defects within the warranty period will be performed by Inmarsat at no charge. For the avoidance of doubt, only the parts and labor directly related to the specific warranty-covered repair shall be free of charge. Any additional labor necessary to complete the repair that is unrelated to the direct warranty repair shall be Customer’s responsibility to pay.
8.6. Once a warranty repair has been completed, Inmarsat shall provide a ninety (90) day warranty on such repair and shall provide repairs on any non-warranty Equipment repair where the fault is caused by the replaced or repaired part. 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.All warranties offered by Inmarsat are a “back-to-base” warranty, such that Customer will bear the transportation cost of returning any nonconforming or defective Equipment to Inmarsat’s designated premises and also the transportation cost of returning the Equipment following a repair from Inmarsat’s designated premises to Customer’s premises. If Customer requires an Inmarsat technician to travel to Customer’s location to perform warranty services, Customer will be responsible for all costs associated with the travel including, but not limited to, transportation costs, living expenses, etc. Inmarsat will provide a written estimate of travel costs upon request.
8.8. All warranties offered by Inmarsat are a “back-to-base” warranty, such that Customer will bear the transportation cost of returning any nonconforming or defective Equipment to Inmarsat’s designated premises and also the transportation cost of returning the Equipment following a repair from Inmarsat’s designated premises to Customer’s premises. If Customer requires an Inmarsat technician to travel to Customer’s location to perform warranty services, Customer will be responsible for all costs associated with the travel including, but not limited to, transportation costs, living expenses, etc. Inmarsat will provide a written estimate of travel costs upon request.

9.1. Customer shall [and shall procure that its Service Providers and Subscribers shall] comply with all procedures (“Procedures”) established by such third parties that supply the Equipment to Inmarsat, as may be provided and/or modified from time to time.

Inmarsat will not be liable for Customer’s use of the Equipment in a manner inconsistent with the Procedures.
9.2. Customer shall not [and shall procure that its Service Providers and Subscribers shall not] modify the Equipment in a manner that infringes the Procedures or would otherwise alter the transmission characteristics of the Equipment.

11.4. Inmarsat may charge Customer and Customer will pay Inmarsat for the fair market value of the Equipment, in its reasonable determination, if Customer fails to return the Equipment to Inmarsat within thirty (30) days of the end of the rental term.
11.5. Any breach by Customer of this Paragraph 11 shall entitle Inmarsat to enter Customer’s premises where the Equipment is reasonably believed to be located, and remove such Equipment without any legal process or notice, and without being liable for trespass or damage, and to declare all amounts remaining unpaid to be immediately due and payable by Customer.
12. Equipment Installation and Maintenance
12.1. It is Customer's sole obligation and responsibility to ensure that all Equipment and associated computer hardware and software are properly configured with respect to the Products being used and that only authorized users are permitted access to the Equipment.
12.2. Customer shall at all times comply with the standards, operating procedures, and requirements required by Inmarsat for the Equipment installation and operating environment.
