IN THOSE STATES AND JURISDICTIONS THAT DO NOT ALLOW CERTAIN LIMITATIONS OF LIABILITY, CONTRACTOR’S LIABILITY SHALL BE LIMITED TO THE GREATEST EXTENT PERMITTED UNDER APPLICABLE LAW.
SEVERABILITY: In the event any provision of this Agreement is found to be invalid, illegal or unenforceable, the validity, legality and enforceability of any of the remaining provisions shall not in any way be affected or impaired and a valid, legal and enforceable provision of similar intent and economic impact shall be substituted therefore.
ENTIRE AGREEMENT: This Agreement sets forth the entire understanding and agreement between you and Contractor, supersedes all prior agreements, whether written or oral, with respect to the Software, and may be amended only in a writing signed by both parties.
GENERAL: Failure or delay in enforcing any right or provision of this Agreement shall not be deemed a waiver of such right or provision with respect to any subsequent breach. No terms, provisions, or conditions of any purchase order, acknowledgement, check, or other business form that you may use in connection with the licensing of the Software will have any effect on the rights, duties, or obligations of the parties under this Agreement, regardless of any failure of Contractor to object to such terms, provisions or conditions. Your rights under this Agreement may not be transferred or assigned without the prior express written consent of Contractor and/or its licensors. If Contractor and/or its licensors grant permission for an assignment of this Agreement to any third party, such transferee must accept the terms and conditions of this Agreement, and, upon such transfer, your License to the Software will automatically terminate.
