EFFECT OF TERMINATION
 
 
26.1.
When this Agreement is terminated:
 
 
26.1.1.
all the Licensee's rights under this Agreement shall thereupon terminate or be terminated (as the case may be) and the Licensee shall not thereafter be concerned with the Licensed Products whether by way of manufacture, sale or otherwise;
 
 
26.1.2.
the licence to use the Trademarks ceases immediately and the Licensee will immediately discontinue the use of the Trademarks, signs, cards, notices and other display or advertising matter indicative of “Paul Smith” or of any association with the Licensor or products of the Licensor and will make or cause to be made such changes in signs, cards, notices and other display or advertising matter as the Licensor shall direct. If the Licensee shall within [-----]35 of such direction fail or omit to make or cause to be made any change then the Licensor shall have power (without incurring or imposing any liability on the Licensor to the Licensee) without the consent of the Licensee, save the consent hereby irrevocably given, to enter upon any premises of the Licensee and to make or cause to be made any such change at the expense of the Licensee which expense the Licensee hereby agrees to pay on demand. The Licensee shall also when demanded by the Licensor deliver up to the Licensor all stationery, literature, signs, cards, notices other display or advertising matter and any other article bearing the name “Paul Smith” or the Trademarks which may be the property of the Licensee. All items which may have been loaned to the Licensee by the Licensor shall be returned to the Licensor at the Licensee's expense;
 
 
26.1.3.
the Licensee must not manufacture, sell or offer any products or services of any type or description under or by reference to the Trademarks or any confusingly similar mark;
 
 
26.1.4.
the Licensee must return to the Licensor at its own expense all confidential, secret or proprietary information of the Licensor (including all copies in whatever form of any such information) and undertakes not to use that information for any purpose;
 
 
26.1.5.
the Licensee must co-operate with the Licensor in cancelling any registration of this Agreement as a Licence or of the Licensee as a permitted user of the Trademarks. If the Licensee shall fail so to do the Licensor is hereby irrevocably appointed the agent of the Licensee with full authority to give such notice to any Registrar of Trade Marks on behalf of the Licensee; and
 
 
26.1.6.
the Licensee shall cease the use of all material of whatever nature the copyright and/or design right of which is vested in the Licensor or where the continued use thereof would in any way infringe the Licensor's copyright and/or design right.

26.2.
The Licensee must within [-----]36 of termination pay the Licensor all sums due under this Agreement together with all accrued interest.
 
 
26.3.
Termination of this Agreement by each party pursuant to Clause 24 shall be without prejudice to the right to seek compensation for breach of any provisions of this Agreement.
 
 
26.4.
Except as expressly set out above, all rights and obligations of the parties under this Agreement shall cease upon its termination or expiry.
 
27.
SUPERVENING LAWS AND FORCE MAJEURE
 
 
27.1.
The rights and obligations of the parties under this Agreement shall be subject to all applicable laws, orders, regulations, directions, restrictions and limitations of Governments or other bodies having jurisdiction over the parties.
 
 
27.2.
If any such law, order, regulation, direction, restriction or limitation as aforesaid or any treaty or other international agreement or the final judicial construction of any of them shall after the date of the execution of this Agreement substantially alter the relationship between the parties or the advantages derived from such relationship then the parties shall on request from the adversely affected party modify this Agreement to restore the situation if practicable or to compensate for such alteration. If the parties are unable to agree on such a modification within three months after the notice of request has been received by the party not affected then any party may refer the matter for determination by the courts in conformity with Clause 31
 
 
27.3.
Subject to clause 27.2, if and to the extent that either party is prevented or delayed by Force Majeure from performing any of its obligations under this Agreement and promptly so notifies the other party, specifying the matters constituting Force Majeure together with such evidence in verification thereof as it can reasonably give and specifying the period for which it is estimated that the prevention or delay will continue, then the party so affected shall be relieved of liability to the other party for failure to perform or for delay in performing such obligations (as the case may be), but shall nevertheless use its best endeavours to resume full performance thereof provided that if the Force Majeure continues for a period of six months or more following notification, the party not affected by the Force Majeure may terminate this Agreement by giving not less than [-----]37 prior notice to the other party, but the notice of termination shall be of no effect if the party affected by the Force Majeure resumes full performance of its obligations before the expiry of the notice period.
 
 
27.4.
Nothing in clause 27.3 shall affect or relieve the Licensee’s obligation to pay the Royalty or any other sum due to the Licensor from the Licensor under this Agreement.
 
28.
SEVERANCE
 
 
28.1.
If any provision of this Agreement shall be found by any court or administrative body of competent jurisdiction to be invalid or unenforceable, such invalidity or unenforceability shall not affect the other provisions of this Agreement which shall remain in full force and effect. 

36 Confidential information omitted and filed separately with the SEC with a request for confidential treatment by Inter Parfums, Inc. No. 10.134.36.
37 Confidential information omitted and filed separately with the SEC with a request for confidential treatment by Inter Parfums, Inc. No. 10.134.37.
 
23

 
 
28.2.
If any provision of this Agreement is so found to be invalid or unenforceable but would be valid or enforceable if some part of the provision were deleted, the provision in question shall apply with such modification(s) as may be necessary to make it valid and enforceable.
 
 
28.3.
The parties agree, in the circumstances referred to in sub-clause 28.1 and if sub-clause 28.2 does not apply, to attempt to substitute for any invalid or unenforceable provision a valid or enforceable provision which achieves to the greatest extent possible the same effect as would have been achieved by the invalid or unenforceable provision. The obligations of the parties under any invalid or unenforceable provision of this Agreement shall be suspended while an attempt at such substitution is made.
 
29.
THIRD PARTY RIGHTS
 
A person who is not a party to this Agreement has no right to enforce any term of this Agreement but this does not affect any right or remedy of a third party which exists or is available apart from the Contracts (Rights of Third Parties) Act 1999.
 
30.
MISCELLANEOUS
 
 
30.1.
This Agreement, together with any documents referred to in it, constitutes the whole agreement between the parties relating to its subject matter and supersedes and extinguishes any prior drafts, agreements, undertakings, representations, warranties and arrangements of any nature, whether in writing or oral, relating to such subject matter.
 
 
30.2.
Each of the parties acknowledges and agrees that in entering into this Agreement, and the documents referred to in it, it does not rely on, and shall have no remedy in respect of, any statement, representation, warranty or understanding (whether negligently or innocently made) of any person (whether party to this Agreement or not) other than as expressly set out in this Agreement. Nothing in this clause shall, however, operate to limit or exclude any liability for fraud.
 
 
30.3.
No variation of this Agreement shall be effective unless made in writing and signed by or on behalf of each of the parties.
 
 
30.4.
In order to enable the Licensor to ascertain whether the Licensee is complying with the obligations imposed upon it under this Agreement and in order to enable the Licensor to enforce rights given to it by this Agreement, the Licensor may at any time enter premises of the Licensee and of any sub licensee of the Licensee without any other consent of the Licensee save that which the Licensee hereby gives and which it hereby agrees not to revoke.
 
 
30.5.
No failure to exercise nor any delay in exercising by any party to this Agreement of any right, power, privilege or remedy under this Agreement shall impair or operate as a waiver of such right, power, privilege or remedy. A waiver of a breach of any of the terms of this Agreement or of a default under this Agreement does not constitute a waiver of any other breach or default and shall not affect the other terms of this Agreement. A waiver of a breach of any of the terms of this Agreement or of a default under this Agreement will not prevent a party from subsequently requiring compliance with the waived obligation. The rights and remedies provided by this Agreement are cumulative and (subject as otherwise provided in this Agreement) are not exclusive of any rights or remedies provided by law.
 
24

 
 
30.6.
Any notice required to be given under this Agreement or in connection with the matters contemplated by it shall, except where otherwise specifically provided, be in writing personally delivered, in which case it shall be deemed to have been given upon delivery at the relevant address, or sent by first class pre-paid post, in which case it shall be deemed to have been given seven Business Days after the date of posting, or sent by facsimile, in which case it shall be deemed to have been given when despatched, subject to confirmation of uninterrupted transmission by a transmission report.
 
 
30.7.
Without prejudice to any other rights or remedies that the Licensor may have, the Licensee acknowledges and agrees that damages alone would not be an adequate remedy for any breach by the Licensee of the provisions of this Agreement and that accordingly the Licensor shall be entitled, without proof of special damages, to the remedies of injunction, specific performance or other equitable relief for any threatened or actual breach of the provisions of this Agreement.
 
 
30.8.
Any time, date or period mentioned in this Agreement may be extended by written agreement between the parties but otherwise and except as expressly provided, as regards any time, date or period originally fixed or any time, date or period so extended as aforesaid, time shall be of the essence for the performance of each of the Licensee's (but not the Licensor's) obligations under this Agreement.
 
 
30.9.
Nothing in this Agreement shall constitute, or be deemed to constitute, a partnership between the parties nor, except as expressly provided, shall it constitute, or be deemed to constitute, any party the agent of any other party for any purpose. 
 
 
30.10.
This Agreement is drawn up in the English language. If this Agreement is translated into another language, the English language text shall in any event prevail.
 
 
30.11.
None of the parties shall make any announcement relating to this Agreement or its subject matter without the prior written approval of the other party except as required by law or by any legal or regulatory authority.
 
 
30.12.
This Agreement may be executed in any number of counterparts, each of which, when executed and delivered, shall be an original, and all the counterparts together shall constitute one and the same instrument.
 
 
30.13.
Each party shall pay its own costs relating to the negotiation, preparation, execution and implementation by it of this Agreement and of each document referred to in it.
 
31.
LAW AND JURISDICTION
 
This Agreement shall be governed by, and construed in accordance with, English Law and each of the parties irrevocably submits to the non-exclusive jurisdiction of the English courts and waives any objection to proceedings in such courts on the grounds of venue or on the grounds that the proceedings have been brought in an inconvenient forum.
