11.1  We are responsible to you for foreseeable loss and damage caused by us. If we fail to comply with the terms of the agreements, we are responsible for loss or damage you suffer that is a foreseeable result of our breaking team or our failing to use reasonable care and skill, but we are not responsible for any loss or damage that is not foreseeable. Loss of damage is foreseeable if either it is obvious that it will happen or if, at the time the Agreements were entered into, both we and you knew it might happen, for example, if you discussed it with us during the sales process.

12.4     If a court finds part of the Agreements illegal, the rest will continue in force. Each of the clauses within the Agreements operate separately. If any court or relevant authority decides that any of them are unlawful, the remaining clauses will remain in full force and effect.

12.5     Even if we delay in enforcing any terms in the Agreements, we can still enforce them later. If we do not insist immediately that you do anything you are required to do under the terms of the Agreements, or if we delay in taking steps against you in respect of your breaking any of the terms of the Agreements, that will not mean that you do not have to do those things and it will not prevent us taking steps against you at a later date.
