18.4 The Customer must not assign or otherwise deal with any of its rights or obligations under these Terms without Micador’s prior written consent.

Notices will be deemed to have been received: by hand upon delivery; by post within six Business Days of sending; and by email one hour after the email is sent (unless the sender knows that email has failed to send).
