You hereby waive any rights or requirements under any Laws in any jurisdiction which require an original signature or delivery or retention of non-electronic records, or to payments or the granting of credits by any means other than electronic means.
24. Agreement; Miscellaneous. These Terms of Service, which incorporate by reference any: (i) additional terms on the Service or otherwise provided by us for particular activities, including the Additional Terms; and (ii) disclosures provided by us and consents provided by you on the Service, constitute the entire agreement and understanding between you and us and neither party has relied on any representations made by the other that are not expressly set forth in these Terms of Service. Our failure to exercise or enforce any right or provision of these Terms of Service shall not operate as a waiver of such right or provision. These Terms of Service operate to the fullest extent permissible by Law. We shall not be responsible or liable for any loss, damage, delay, or failure to act caused by any cause beyond our reasonable control. If any provision or part of a provision of these Terms of Service is determined to be unlawful, void, or unenforceable, that provision or part of the provision is deemed severable from these Terms of Service and does not affect the validity and enforceability of any remaining provisions. There is no joint venture, partnership, employment or agency relationship created between you and us as a result of these Terms of Service or use of the Service. You agree that these Terms of Service will not be construed against us by virtue of having drafted them. You hereby waive any and all defenses you may have based on the electronic form of these Terms of Service and the lack of signing by the parties hereto to execute these Terms of Service. Except as set forth in Sections 10 and 20 above, there are no third party beneficiaries of any part of these Terms of Service. These Terms of Service are personal to you, and are not assignable, transferable, or sublicensable by you except with Nectarine’s prior written consent, which Nectarine may withhold for any reason or no reason. In any action or proceeding to enforce rights under these Terms of Service, the prevailing party will be entitled to recover its reasonable costs and attorneys’ fees.
25. No Class Actions. Each party expressly waives their right to file a class action or seek relief on a class basis. YOU AND NECTARINE AGREE THAT EACH PARTY MAY BRING CLAIMS AGAINST THE OTHER ONLY IN YOUR OR ITS INDIVIDUAL CAPACITY, AND NOT AS A PLAINTIFF OR CLASS MEMBER IN ANY PURPORTED CLASS OR REPRESENTATIVE PROCEEDING.
