- Further to any other rights or remedies C2C may have under this contract, if a Customer has made payment to C2C, and the transaction is subsequently reversed, the Customer shall be liable for the amount of the reversed transaction, in addition to any further costs incurred by C2C under this clause 21 where it can be proven that such reversal is found to be illegal, fraudulent or in contravention to the Customer’s obligations under this agreement.
- Without prejudice to C2C’s other remedies at law C2C shall be entitled to cancel all or any part of any order of the Customer which remains unfulfilled and all amounts owing to C2C shall, whether or not due for payment, become immediately payable if:

C2C will not be liable to the Customer for any loss or damage the Customer suffers because C2C has exercised its rights under this clause.
- C2C may cancel any contract to which these terms and conditions apply or cancel delivery of Products at any time before the Products are delivered by giving written notice to the Customer. On giving such notice C2C shall repay to the Customer any money paid by the Customer for the Products. C2C shall not be liable for any loss or damage whatsoever arising from such cancellation.
