    • The Client will be taken to have accepted this Agreement if the Client accepts an Invoice, or if the Client orders, accepts or pays for any goods and/or services provided by YSG after receiving or becoming aware of this Agreement or these Client Terms.
    • In the event of any inconsistency between these Client Terms and any Invoice, the clauses of these Client Terms will prevail to the extent of such inconsistency, except that any "Special Conditions" (being terms described as such in an Invoice) will prevail over these Client Terms to the extent of any inconsistency.

      • the agreed Fees and other rates.
  1. GOODS AND/OR SERVICES
