16.5Interpretation

 

Clauses 16.2, 16.3 and 16.4 have effect together as if they consisted of separate provisions, each being severable from the other.

If any of those separate provisions is invalid or unenforceable for any reason, the invalidity or unenforceability does not affect the validity or enforceability of any of the other separate provisions or other combinations of the separate provisions of clauses 16.2, 16.3 and 16.4.

This clause 16 does not restrict a Prohibited Person from:

(c)the Buyer may apply for injunctive relief if:

 

(i)a Prohibited Person breaches or threatens to breach this clause 15; or

 

(ii)it believes a Prohibited Person is likely to breach this clause 15.
