- These Terms constitute the entire agreement between you and Company relating to the subject matter hereof, and they supersede and replace any prior agreements between you and Company relating to the same. The failure of Company to exercise or enforce any right or provision of these Terms shall not constitute a waiver of such right or provision in that or any other instance. If any provision of these Terms is held invalid, the remainder of the Terms shall continue in full force and effect. If any provision of these Terms shall be deemed unlawful, void, or for any reason unenforceable, then that provision shall be deemed severable from these Terms and shall not affect the validity and enforceability of any remaining provisions. Any amendment to the Terms by you must be made in writing and signed by us. You will not transfer any of your rights or obligations under these Terms to anyone else without our consent.
