No variation of these Conditions shall be effective unless it is in writing and signed by the parties (or their authorised representatives).
If any provision or part-provision of these Conditions is or becomes invalid, illegal or unenforceable, it shall be deemed modified to the minimum extent necessary to make it valid, legal and enforceable.

21. NO PARTNERSHIP OR AGENCY
Nothing in these Conditions is intended to, or shall be deemed to, establish any partnership or joint venture between any of the parties, constitute any party the agent of another party, or authorise any party to make or enter into any commitments for or on behalf of any other party.
Each party confirms it is acting on its own behalf and not for the benefit of any other person.
