If any court of competent jurisdiction adjudges any provision of these Terms to be to be illegal, unenforceable or invalid, that provision shall be limited or eliminated to the minimum extent necessary so that these Terms shall otherwise remain in full force and effect and enforceable, but shall not affect any other term or provision of these Terms or invalidate or render unenforceable such term or provision in any other jurisdiction. You acknowledge and agree that there may be no adequate remedy at law for any material breach of these Terms, which breach may result in irreparable harm to the Company, and therefore, upon any such breach or any threat thereof, Company is entitled to seek temporary, preliminary and permanent injunctive relief against you (and, if applicable, your officers or employees) without the requirement of posting a bond or proving actual damages, in addition to whatever remedies Company might have at law. These Terms constitute the sole and entire agreement between the parties with respect to the subject matter contained herein, and supersedes all prior and contemporaneous understandings, agreements, representations and warranties, both written and oral, with respect to such subject matter. Except for our right to make changes to these Terms as expressly stated above, these Terms may only be amended, modified or supplemented by an agreement in writing by non-preprinted agreements clearly understood by both parties to be an amendment and signed by each party hereto. No waiver by the Company of any of the provisions hereof shall be effective unless explicitly set forth in writing and signed by the Company. In addition, no failure to exercise, or delay in exercising, any right, remedy, power or privilege arising from these shall operate or be construed as a waiver thereof; nor shall any single or partial exercise of any right, remedy, power or privilege hereunder preclude any other or further exercise thereof or the exercise of any other right, remedy, power or privilege.
