  27. You agree that if The Sermon does not exercise or enforce any legal right or remedy which is contained in the Terms (or which The Sermon has the benefit of under any applicable law), this will not be taken to be a formal waiver of The Sermon's rights and that those rights or remedies will still be available to The Sermon.
  28. If any court of law, having the jurisdiction to decide on this matter, rules that any provision of these Terms is invalid, then that provision will be removed from the Terms without affecting the rest of the Terms. The remaining provisions of the Terms will continue to be valid and enforceable.
  29. The Terms, and your relationship with The Sermon under the Terms, shall be governed by English law. You and The Sermon agree to submit to the exclusive jurisdiction of the courts of England to resolve any legal matter arising from the Terms. Notwithstanding this, you agree that The Sermon shall still be allowed to apply for injunctive remedies (or other equivalent types of urgent legal remedy) in any jurisdiction.
