11.2.3 there is a change of Control of the Customer.
11.3 Without affecting any other right or remedy available to it, either party may terminate the Agreement with immediate effect by giving written notice to the other party if:

21.1 The Agreement constitutes the entire agreement between the parties and supersedes and extinguishes all previous agreements, promises, assurances, warranties, representations and understandings between them, whether written or oral, relating to its subject matter.

Each party agrees that it shall have no claim for innocent or negligent misrepresentation or negligent misstatement based on any statement in the Agreement.
Neither party will assign, transfer, charge, sub-contract or deal in any other manner with all or any of its rights or obligations under the Agreement without the other party’s prior written consent (such consent not to be unreasonably withheld or delayed), provided that this clause 22 shall not apply where Sensat has indicated to the Customer at the date of the Agreement that it intends to subcontract part or all of the Services to one of its third party suppliers or subcontractors.

25.2 A notice is deemed to have been received, if delivered personally, at the time of delivery, in the case of pre-paid first class post or recorded delivery, 48 hours from the date of posting and in the case of email, at the time of transmission and, if deemed receipt under this clause 25 is not within normal business hours (meaning 8.30 am to 5.30 pm Monday to Friday on a day that is a Business Day), at 8.30 am on the first business day following delivery. To prove service, it is sufficient to prove that, in the case of post, that the envelope containing the notice was properly addressed and posted, or in the case of email, to show that the notice was transmitted by email to the email address of the other party.
25.3 This clause 25 does not apply to the service of any proceedings or any documents in any legal action or, where applicable, any arbitration or other method of dispute resolution.

26.1.1 either party shall give to the other written notice of the Dispute, setting out its nature and full particulars (a “Dispute Notice”), together with relevant supporting documents. On service of the Dispute Notice, the Customer’s Project Manager (or equivalent) and Sensat’s VP of Sales or Chief Data Officer (or equivalent), as applicable, of Sensat shall attempt in good faith to resolve the Dispute;
26.1.2 if the Customer’s Project Manager (or equivalent) and Sensat’s VP of Sales or Chief Data Officer (or equivalent), as applicable, are for any reason unable to resolve the Dispute within thirty (30) days of service of the Dispute Notice, the Dispute shall be referred to the Customer’s Managing Director (or equivalent) and Sensat’s CEO who shall attempt in good faith to resolve it;
26.1.3 if the Customer’s Managing Director (or equivalent) and Sensat’s CEO are for any reason unable to resolve the Dispute within thirty (30) days of it being referred to them, the parties will attempt to settle it by mediation in accordance with the CEDR Model Mediation Procedure. Unless otherwise agreed between the parties, the mediator shall be nominated by CEDR. To initiate the mediation, a party must serve notice in writing (an “ADR notice”) to the other party to the Dispute, requesting a mediation. A copy of the ADR notice should be sent to CEDR. The mediation will start not later than sixty (60) days, or such date as agreed between the Customer and Sensat, after the date of the ADR notice.
