MISCELLANEOUS

  1. ENTIRE AGREEMENT – The Agreement contains the entire agreement and understanding between the Parties with respect to the subject matter hereof and supersedes and replaces all prior agreements and understanding, whether written or oral, with respect to the same subject matter still in force between the Parties.
  2. ASSIGNABILITY – Without prejudice to other provisions of the Agreement, the Customer will not assign nor transfer any of its rights or obligations under the Agreement, either in whole or in part, to any third party without the prior written consent of the Company.

Moreover, in this case, the Parties will amend the invalid, illegal or unenforceable provision(s) or any part thereof and/or agree on a new provision that embodies as closely as possible the purpose of the invalid, illegal or unenforceable provision(s).
  4. FORCE MAJEURE – Neither Party will be liable for any failure to perform under this Agreement (except for the payment of any sums due hereunder) if such failure is due to causes beyond its reasonable control, such as but not limited to fire, flood, strikes, labour disputes or other industrial disturbances, (declared or undeclared) war, embargoes, blockades, cyberattacks, legal restrictions, riots, pandemics, epidemics, insurrections, governmental regulations (Force Majeure).

  5. NO WAIVER – Any failure or delay by one Party in exercising any right under the Agreement, the exercise or partial exercise of any right under this Agreement, or any reaction or absence of reaction by a Party in the event of a breach by the other Party of one or more provisions of the Agreement will not operate or be construed as a waiver (either express or implied, in whole or in part) of its rights under this Agreement or under said provision(s) or preclude the further exercise of any such rights. Any waiver of a right must be express and in writing.
