    C. notify JBA and EWN immediately of any final decision as to disclosure of the JBA Flood Data and no less than 72 hours before any proposed disclosure, as to what if any of the JBA Flood Data (or any material derived from JBA Flood Data) is proposed to be disclosed; and
    D. co-operate fully with the requirements set out in this paragraph (f).
    (g) Where the Client is, or is deemed to be, or acts for and on behalf of or on the authority of a Public Authority under the Information Access Regimes and the Client seeks to make disclosure or discloses JBA Flood Data under the Information Access Regimes without the consent of EWN and JBA, such disclosure shall entitle EWN and/or JBA to terminate the Agreement with immediate effect and without liability on their part.
    (h) The Client agrees to bring no claim against JBA in connection with this Agreement, and JBA shall have no liability whatsoever to the Client under or in connection with this Agreement or the subject matter of it, except in respect of liability which by law cannot be excluded or which by law cannot be limited (as to which JBA's liability is limited to the maximum extent possible).
    (i) The Contracts (Rights of Third Parties) Act 1999 applies for the benefit of JBA such that JBA and/or JBA Risk Management Limited may (but shall have no obligation to) enforce any of the terms in the Agreement which relate to disclosure under the Information Access Regimes, limitation on JBA's liability, use of JBA Flood Data or infringement of Intellectual Property Rights in the JBA Flood Data.
    (j) If JBA provides any assistance, support or services, including training, support and consultancy (Assistance), to the Client in connection with or following an Agreement, JBA's total liability (save in respect of liability which cannot by law be excluded or limited) in connection with such Assistance shall not exceed the higher of the value of the JBA Royalty paid by EWN to JBA in respect of that Agreement in the twelve months immediately preceding JBA providing such Assistance or GBP£1000, except where JBA and Client have entered into a written agreement in respect of such Assistance and that written agreement provides for an alternative limit on JBA's liability in respect of such Assistance in which case such alternative limit on JBA's liability shall apply.
    (k) The Agreement and any matter, dispute or claim arising from or in connection with the Agreement in so far as it applies to JBA Flood Data and its use (including non-contractual disputes or claims) shall be governed by and construed in accordance with English law. The Client must submit to the mediation process prescribed in the Agreement and, subject to that, to the exclusive jurisdiction of the English courts, save that this shall not restrict the right of JBA and/or JBA Risk Management Limited to take proceedings in any other court of competent jurisdiction in connection with securing, protecting or preventing misuse of JBA's Intellectual Property.
