We may assign any of our rights or obligations under these Terms to another party for any reason, without notice to or consent from you. You may not assign or transfer your rights or obligations under these Terms without our prior written consent, and any assignment or transfer in violation of this provision shall be null and void. There are no third-party beneficiaries to these Terms.

These Terms do not, and shall not be construed to, create any partnership, joint venture, employer-employee, agency or franchisor-franchisee relationship between you and us.

If any provision of these Terms is found to be unlawful, void or for any reason unenforceable, that provision will be deemed severable from these Terms and will not affect the validity and enforceability of any remaining provisions. No waiver by either party of any breach or default hereunder will be deemed to be a waiver of any preceding or subsequent breach or default.

These Terms, including any terms and conditions incorporated herein, represent the entire agreement between you and us relating to the subject matter hereof, and supersedes any and all prior or contemporaneous written or oral agreements or understandings between you and us relating to such subject matter. If any provision of the Terms is found by a court of competent jurisdiction to be invalid, the parties nevertheless agree that the court should endeavor to give effect to the parties’ intentions as reflected in the provision, and the other provisions of the Terms shall remain in full force and effect. Headings are for reference only and in no way define, limit, construe, or describe the scope or extent of such section. Our failure to act with respect to any failure by you or others to comply with these Terms does not waive our right to act with respect to subsequent or similar failures.

In these Terms, headings are for convenience only and do not affect the interpretation of these Terms; the singular includes the plural and vice versa; where a word or phrase is given a particular meaning, other parts of speech and grammatical forms of that word or phrase have corresponding meanings; the words “such as,” “including,” “particularly” and similar expressions are not used as, nor are intended to be, interpreted as words of limitation; and no rule of construction applies to the disadvantage of a party because that party was responsible for the preparation of these Terms.
