Any permitted assignment shall be binding on the successors of the assigning Party.
12. INDEPENDENT CONTRACTOR
No employee or representative of either Party shall have any authority to bind or obligate the other Party to these T&C for any sum or in any manner whatsoever or to create or impose any contractual or other liability on the other Party without said Party’s prior written approval. For all purposes, and notwithstanding any other provision of these T&C to the contrary, the Parties’ legal relationship under these T&C shall be that of independent contractors.
13. UNENFORCEABLE PROVISIONS AND SEVERABILITY
General provisions of these T&C apply to all Homa products and services. If a specific provision contradicts a general provision, the specific provision shall prevail. If any of the provisions of these T&C are held to be void or unenforceable, then such void or unenforceable provisions shall be replaced by valid and enforceable provisions that will achieve as far as possible the economic business intentions of the Parties. However, the remainder of these T&C will remain in full force and effect, provided that the material interests of the Parties are not affected, i.e. the Parties would presumably have concluded these T&C without the unenforceable provisions.
The failure by either Party to require strict performance and/or observance of any obligation, term, provision or condition under these T&C will neither constitute a waiver thereof nor affect in any way the right of the respective Party to require such performance and/or observance. The waiver by either Party of a breach of any obligation, term, provision or condition hereunder shall not constitute a waiver of any subsequent breach thereof or of any other obligation, term, provision or condition.
