between you and us. Our failure to exercise or enforce any right or provision of these Legal Terms shall not
operate as a waiver of such right or provision. These Legal Terms operate to the fullest extent permissible by
law. We may assign any or all of our rights and obligations to others at any time. 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 Legal Terms is determined to be unlawful, void, or unenforceable,
that provision or part of the provision is deemed severable from these Legal Terms 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 Legal Terms or use of the Services. You
agree that these Legal Terms will not be construed against us by virtue of having drafted them. You hereby
waive any and all defenses you
