Each Party is an independent contractor to the other and has no authority to act on behalf of or bind the other, and this Agreement does not create any other relationship (e.g., employment, partnership, agency, or franchise). Failure to enforce any part of this Agreement is not a waiver; only signed waivers are effective. The waiver of a breach of any provision will not operate or be interpreted as a waiver of any other or subsequent breach. Advertiser will not assign this Agreement in whole or part without Social Stance’s consent, and any assignment in violation of this section is null and void. This Agreement will bind and benefit the Parties’ successors and permitted assigns. The language in all parts of this Agreement will be construed, in all cases, according to fair meaning. If any part of this Agreement cannot be enforced as written, then the unenforceable portion will be replaced with similar terms to the extent enforceable under applicable law, and the rest of this Agreement will not be affected. All
rights and remedies under this Agreement are cumulative. This Agreement is the Parties’ entire agreement on this subject, merges all prior and contemporaneous communications, and supersedes all prior agreements between the Parties regarding this subject.
