If applicable, the Advertiser will provide, before the prize promotion start date, contact details for the person with responsibility for arranging delivery of the prize(s). These details will be provided to the winner(s) when AOR notifies them that they have won. The responsible person will then be expected to liaise with the winner(s) and must confirm to AOR, in writing, when the winner(s) has been contacted about their prize and/or to arrange its delivery and, again, once delivery has taken place. 10.1.7.

10.2 The Advertiser shall be liable for, and hereby indemnifies AOR against any and all losses, damages, liabilities, claims, demands, actions, penalties, fines, awards, costs and expenses (including reasonable legal and other professional expenses) incurred as a result of any such prize referred to in clause 10.1, including any claim by a third party arising out of the use or enjoyment of such prize.
11. DATA PROTECTION
11.1. Unless otherwise agreed, no personal data will be transferred to the Advertiser by AOR pursuant to this Agreement. The transfer of any personal data by AOR to the Advertiser (in connection with this Campaign or otherwise) is subject to the Advertiser signing and complying with AOR’s standard data sharing agreement. Under no circumstances will personal data be transferred to the Advertiser unless the Advertiser signs such data sharing agreement.

12. CONFIDENTIAL INFORMATION
The terms of this Agreement (but not its existence), and any other information notified by one party to the other as being confidential, shall be kept strictly confidential at all times, unless required by law, order of a court of competent jurisdiction, in which event the disclosing party shall notify the other party as promptly as possible (and, if at all possible, prior to the making of any such disclosure) and shall use its reasonable commercial endeavours to ensure that such information continues to be treated as confidential. Notwithstanding the foregoing, the parties shall be entitled to disclose any such confidential information on a “need-to-know” basis under the same obligations of confidentiality as in this Agreement, to its professional advisors, employees, officers, contractors, agents and affiliated companies.

14.2 Except as set out in these Conditions, no variation of the Agreement shall be effective unless it is in writing and signed by the parties (or their authorised representatives).
14.3 If any provision or part-provision of the Agreement is or becomes invalid, illegal or unenforceable, it shall be deemed deleted, but that shall not affect the validity and enforceability of the rest of this Agreement.
14.4. A waiver of any right or remedy under the Agreement or by law is only effective if given in writing and shall not be deemed a waiver of any subsequent right or remedy. A failure or delay by a party to exercise any right or remedy provided under the Agreement or by law shall not constitute a waiver of that or any other right or remedy, nor shall it prevent or restrict any further exercise of that or any other right or remedy. No single or partial exercise of any right or remedy provided under the Agreement or by law shall prevent or restrict the further exercise of that or any other right or remedy.

14.7 If there is any conflict between these terms and conditions and the Order Confirmation, the Order Confirmation shall prevail.

Any notice or communication shall be deemed to have been received (i) if delivered by hand, at the time the notice is left at the proper address; or (ii) if sent by pre-paid first-class post or other next working day delivery service, at 9.00 am on the second business day after posting.
14.9. A person who is not a party to this Agreement shall have no rights to enforce any of its terms whether under the Contracts (Rights of Thirds Parties) Act 1999, or otherwise.
