Further, any provision held to be illegal, invalid, unenforceable, or void by a court or tribunal of competent jurisdiction shall be construed, if possible, to give effect to the Parties' intent. The Parties agree that any such provision, in its forms modified by the court or tribunal, shall then be enforceable and shall be enforced.

17.19 Waiver.


17.19.1 No waiver of any breach of any provision of these Terms of Use shall constitute a waiver of any prior, concurrent or subsequent breach of the same or any other provisions hereof, and no waiver shall be effective unless made in writing and signed by an authorized representative of the waiving party.


17.19.2 The failure of Vidit to insist, in any one or more instances, upon the performance of any of the terms of these Terms of Use or to exercise any right hereunder, shall not be construed as a waiver of the future performance of any such term or the future exercise of such right.
