Enforcement of Terms

If any part of the Terms is held to be unlawful, void, or unenforceable, that part shall be deemed severable and shall not affect the validity and enforceability of the remaining provisions.

Any waiver of any right or provision by the CADA must be in writing and shall only apply to the specific instance identified in such writing. No waiver by the CADA of any provision of the Terms shall be deemed to be a further or continuing waiver of such provision or any other provision.
