(2)If any such notice as is mentioned in paragraph (1) of this regulation relates to any matter principally affecting a territory or territories outside the United Kingdom in respect of which the directors have designated a local head office, that notice shall be sufficiently given if given by advertisement to be inserted at least once in a daily newspaper or newspapers respectively published or generally circulating in the place where each relevant local head office is situated.

(3)A notice requiring to be served by the Company otherwise than by advertisement upon any member, policy holder or policy owner whose place of address appears in the books of the Company to be in the territory in which benefits under the relevant policy are expressed to be payable may be served either personally or by sending it prepaid through the post addressed to such member, policy holder or policy owner at that address.

(4)Each member, policy holder or policy owner whose place of address is for the time being not in the territory in which benefits under the relevant policy are expressed to be payable may from time to time intimate in writing to the Company some place of address in such territory to be his address for service and any notice requiring to be served otherwise than by advertisement may be served by the Company upon such member, policy holder or policy owner by sending it prepaid through the post addressed to such member, policy holder or policy owner at that address.

(5)Any such member, policy holder or policy owner as is mentioned in paragraph (4) of this regulation who has not intimated any such address for service shall be deemed to have waived service of all notices other than those of which service by advertisement is prescribed to be sufficient service by the Act or the regulations.

(6)When two or more persons are joint holders of any policy a notice requiring to be served otherwise than by advertisement may be served by the Company upon any one of such persons and such service shall be deemed to be sufficient service of such notice upon all the holders of such policy.

(7)An intimation in writing of every change of name or address of any member, policy holder or policy owner shall be forthwith deposited by such member, policy holder or policy owner at the head office of the Company and in default thereof a notice requiring to be served by the Company otherwise than by advertisement may be served upon such member, policy holder or policy owner by sending it prepaid through the post addressed to such member, policy holder or policy owner by the name and at the place of address appearing in the books of the Company and notice so served shall be good and sufficient notice.

(8)The signature to any notice to be given by or on behalf of the Company may be written or printed.

(9)Where a notice for a specified number of days is required to be given the day of service unless it is otherwise provided shall be counted in such number of days.

(10)A notice sent by post shall be deemed to have been served on the date on which the same would be delivered in the ordinary course of post and in proving such service it shall be sufficient to prove under the hand of the secretary or other officer of the Company that the notice was properly addressed, prepaid and posted.
