In the event of any such transaction, this Agreement shall remain in full force and effect and shall be binding on you and any such successor and/or assign.
The provisions of this Agreement will be deemed severable, and the unenforceability of any one or more provisions will not affect the enforceability of any other provisions.

Our failure to act on or enforce any provision of the Agreement shall not be construed as a waiver of that provision or any other provision in this Agreement. No waiver of any breach or default hereunder shall be effective against us unless made in writing, nor shall any such waiver be deemed to be a waiver of any preceding or subsequent breach or default. This Agreement shall be governed by the laws of the State of Kansas without regard to conflicts of law principles.
