This section does not excuse either Party’s obligation to take reasonable steps to follow its normal disaster recovery procedures or your obligation to pay for the Services.
14.4. No Third-Party Beneficiaries.
Nothing in this MSA or any Order Form shall create or be deemed to create any third-party beneficiary rights in any person or entity not a Party to this MSA or an Order Form, including End-Users.
No failure or delay by either Party in exercising any right under this Agreement shall constitute a waiver of that right.
If any provision of this Agreement is held by a court of competent jurisdiction to be contrary to law, the provision shall be modified by the court and interpreted so as best to accomplish the objectives of the original provision to the fullest extent permitted by law, and the remaining provisions of this MSA or Order Form shall remain in effect.
Neither Party may assign any of its rights or obligations hereunder, whether by operation of law or otherwise, without the prior written consent of the other Party (not to be unreasonably withheld). Notwithstanding the foregoing, either Party may assign this Agreement in its entirety (including all Order Forms), without consent of the other Party, to its Affiliate or in connection with a merger, acquisition, corporate reorganization, or sale of all or substantially all of its assets not involving a direct competitor of the other Party. A Party’s sole remedy for any purported assignment by the other Party in breach of this paragraph shall be, at the non-assigning Party’s election, termination of this Agreement upon written notice to the assigning Party. Subject to the foregoing, this Agreement shall bind and inure to the benefit of the Parties, their respective successors and permitted assigns.
14.8. Entire Agreement.
This Agreement, including all exhibits and addenda hereto and all Order Forms, constitutes the entire agreement between the Parties and supersedes all prior and contemporaneous agreements, proposals or representations, written or oral, concerning its subject matter. No modification, amendment, or waiver of any provision of this Agreement or any Order Form shall be effective unless in writing and either signed or accepted electronically by the Party against whom the modification, amendment or waiver is to be asserted. However, to the extent of any conflict or inconsistency between the provisions in this MSA and or any Order Form, the terms of the Order Form shall prevail.
Either Party may publicize the existence and general nature of the relationship established by this MSA through mutually agreed upon press releases and other marketing collateral. You consent to the Company’s right to use your name and logo on the Company’s website and in marketing activities and press releases.
During the term of this Agreement and for a period of one year thereafter, the Company shall have the right, but not more than once per quarter, at its own expense, to have an independent auditor audit your compliance with your obligations under this Agreement. In the event any such audit discloses any breach by you of your obligations under this Agreement, you shall pay to the Company any fees relating to your failure to comply your obligations under this Agreement and the cost of such audit.
