The failure to require performance of any provision shall not affect a party’s right to require performance at any time thereafter; nor shall waiver of a breach of any provision constitute a waiver of the provision itself. The parties hereto are and shall remain independent contractors and nothing herein shall be deemed to create any agency, partnership or joint venture relationship between the parties. Neither party shall be deemed to be an employee or legal representative of the other nor shall either party have any right or authority to create any obligation on behalf of the other party.

If any provision of this Agreement is found void and unenforceable, it shall be replaced to the extent possible with a provision that comes closest to the meaning of the original provision. The unenforceability of any provision, however, shall not affect the validity of the balance of the Agreement, which shall remain valid and enforceable according to its terms. Any amendments or modifications to the Agreement must (i) be in writing; (ii) refer to the Agreement; and (iii) be executed by an authorized representative of each party. THIS AGREEMENT CONSTITUTES A COMPLETE INTEGRATION OF ALL UNDERSTANDINGS BETWEEN THE PARTIES AND IS THE ENTIRE AGREEMENT BETWEEN USER AND PHOJI RELATING TO THE SERVICE AND ALL TERMS HEREIN.
