Waiver and Severability

Failure by KIP101 to enforce any provision in the Terms shall not waive KIP101’s right to do so.

 

If any provision of the Terms is held to be invalid or unenforceable for any reason or to any extent, such invalidity or enforceability shall not in any manner affect or render invalid or unenforceable the remaining provisions of the Terms.
