    submitting Goods to the relevant authorities, and/or immediately disposing of or

    that Notice on the ACP as identified on the front of this Agreement, and/or has sent 
    Notices to the last notified address or other contact including SMS or email of the 
    Storer or ACP. In the event that there is more than one Storer, Notice to or by any 
    single Storer is agreed to be sufficient for the purposes of any Notice requirement under 
    this Agreement 

TERMINATION:
23. Once the initial fixed period of storage has ended, either party may terminate this 
    Agreement by giving the other party Notice of the Termination Date in accordance with 
    period indicated on the front of this Agreement. In the event of illegal or 
    environmentally harmful activities on the part of the Storer the FO may terminate the 
    Agreement without Notice. The FO is entitled to retain or charge apportioned storage 
    fees if less than the requisite Notice is given by the Storer. The Storer must remove all 
    Goods in the Space before the close of business on the Termination Date and leave the 
    Space in a clean condition and in a good state of repair to the satisfaction of the FO. In

    apply. The Storer must pay any outstanding Storage Fees and any expenses on default 
    or any other moneys owed to the FO up to the Termination Date, or clauses 6, 7 or 8 
    may apply. Any calculation of the outstanding fees will be by the FO. If the FO enters 
    the Space for any reason and there are no Goods stored therein, the FO may terminate 
    the Agreement without giving prior Notice, but the FO will send Notice to the Storer 
    within 7 days. 

24. The Parties’ liability for outstanding moneys, property damage, personal injury, 
    environmental damage and legal responsibility under this Agreement continues to run 
    beyond the termination of this Agreement.
                 
SEVERANCE:
25. If any clause, term or provision of this Agreement is legally unenforceable or is 
    made inapplicable, or in its application would breach any law, that clause, term or 
    provision shall be severed or read down, but so as to maintain (as far as possible) all 
    other terms of the Agreement. 

MEDIATION OF DISPUTES:
26. The parties must endeavor to settle any dispute in connection with this Agreement 
    by mediation. Such mediation is to be conducted by a mediator who is independent of 
    the parties and appointed by agreement of the parties. It is a condition precedent to the 
    right of either party to commence arbitration or litigation other than for interlocutory 
    relief, that it has first offered to submit the dispute to mediation.
