However, as our property e-valuation tool provides you with the requested valuation for a property almost immediately after you submit the property details and agree to these terms and conditions, the contract between us for the provision to you of our services ends almost immediately after it has been entered into.

(c) Even if we delay in enforcing this contract, we can still enforce it later. If we do not insist immediately you do anything you are required to do under these terms, or if we delay in taking steps against you in respect of your breaking this contract, that will not mean you do not have to do those things and it will not prevent us taking steps against you at a later date.
(d) Which laws apply to this contract and where you may bring legal proceedings. These terms are governed by English law and you can bring legal proceedings in respect of our property e-valuation tool in the English courts. If you live in Scotland you can bring legal proceedings in respect of our property e-valuation tool in either the Scottish or the English courts.
