17.10 Part or all of any clause of the Agreement that is unenforceable or illegal will be severed from the Agreement and will not affect the enforceability of the remaining provisions of the Agreement.
17.11 A party’s failure to insist another party perform any obligation under the Agreement is not a waiver of that party’s right to insist the other party perform, or to claim damages for breach of, that obligation, nor to insist the other party perform any other obligation, unless the waiving party acknowledges the waiver in writing.
