If we cannot accept your Order: If we are unable to accept your order, we will inform you of this in writing and will not charge you for the product.

Even if we delay in enforcing this Agreement, we can still enforce it later. If we do not insist immediately that you do anything you are required to do under these terms, or if we delay in taking steps against you in respect of your breaking this Agreement, 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. For example, if you miss a payment and we do not chase you but we continue to provide access to the service, we can still require you to make the payment at a later date.
