You must not resell or transfer the Services or the Equipment (which we lease or rent to you) to third parties without our prior written consent, whether or not for profit or otherwise.

      8. for any reason beyond our control (including loss of any licence, way-leave or easement, requirements of any governmental or regulatory authority or orders by the court and cessation or failure to deliver by a third party supplier) we are unable to provide the Services, we may suspend or terminate all or any part of the Services or terminate this Agreement with 7 working days' notice (for paragraphs 18.4.1 and 18.4.5 above) or with immediate effect (for paragraphs 18.4.2, 18.4.3, 18.4.4, 18.4.6, 18.4.7 and 18.4.8 above) without compensation and without prejudice to our rights to damages for any antecedent breach by you of this Agreement. You may immediately contact our business helpdesk or our account manager to tell us why such suspension or termination should not occur. We will consider each case and where we deem appropriate, will not proceed with the suspension or termination of such account or take any other appropriate action where necessary.
    5. In the event that we suspect that you are using or allowing the Services to be used for fraud, misconduct or any other illegal or improper purpose, we will refer this to the relevant authorities without notice to you and comply with directions or guidelines issued by them without further reference to you.
    6. If and when you make good any breach or default, we may restore any suspended Services after you have paid for any reinstallation, restoration or re-connection Charges and reimbursed us for our reasonable costs in suspending the Services.
    7. If the Services are terminated:
      1. all sums due, accruing due or payable to us in respect of the Services and if applicable, the Equipment, up to the date of termination (including late payment Charges) will, upon the termination, become immediately due and payable to us. There will be no refund of any Charges paid to us for any equipment (including the Equipment) purchased from us; and
      2. you must immediately (and in any event, within 30 days of such termination) return to us all Equipment which we may have leased or rented to you in respect of the Services in good condition, failing which we will be entitled to, at our absolute discretion:

    9. In the event that the Services are suspended due to non-payment of any Charges and you subsequently pay to us all outstanding amounts due or payable to us, you must contact our business helpdesk or our Account Manager if you wish to request for the reactivation of the Services. Reactivation of the Services is not automatic and not immediate upon full payment of the Charges.
    10. The termination of this Agreement will not affect any accrued rights or remedies of either party against the other party.
