7.4 Logic54’s indemnity provided under this Section shall not apply to any claim of infringement if (i) Customer is using a form of the Service that has been modified without Logic54’s approval, to the extent such claimed infringement could have been avoided by use of an unmodified form of the Service; or (ii) the Service has been combined, operated or used with other software or data supplied without Logic54’s prior written approval, to the extent such claimed infringement could have been avoided by the use of the Service without such other software or data.

Each party represents that it is acting on its own behalf and is not acting as an agent for or on behalf of any third party. Nothing in these Terms shall be construed to give either party the power to direct or control the daily activities of the other party, or to constitute the parties as principal and agent, employer and employee, franchisor and franchisee, partners, co- owners, joint venturers, or otherwise as participants in a joint undertaking. The parties understand and agree that, except as specifically provided in these Terms, neither party is granted the power or authority to make or give any agreement, statement, representation, warranty, or other commitment on behalf of the other party, or to enter into any contract or otherwise incur any liability or obligation, express or implied, on behalf of the other party, or to transfer, release, or waive any right, title, or interest of the other party.
18. NO WAIVER. No party shall, by mere lapse of time, without giving notice or taking other action hereunder, be deemed to have waived any breach by the other party of any of the provisions of these Terms. Further, the express waiver by either party of a particular breach of these Terms shall not be construed as nor constitute a continuing waiver of such breach or of breaches of the same or other provisions of these Terms.
19. FORCE MAJEURE. No party will be deemed in default of these Terms to the extent that performance of their obligations or attempts to cure any breach are delayed or prevented by reason of any acts of God, fire, natural disaster, accident, war, riot, act of government or civil or military authorities, or any other unforeseen circumstance or cause beyond the reasonable control of such party (“Force Majeure”). However, Force Majeure does not apply to any payment obligations, any inability to obtain sufficient labor resources, or any obligation that may be reasonably carried out despite unforeseen circumstances. Each party claiming a Force Majeure must give the other party prompt written notice thereof and, in any event, within fifteen (15) calendar days of discovery thereof and uses its good faith efforts to cure the breach promptly. In the event of such a Force Majeure event, the time for performance or cure will be extended for a period equal to the duration of the Force Majeure event but not in excess of a total of sixty (60) days.

The parties hereto acknowledge that these Terms, including any Policies, are the complete and exclusive statement of agreement respecting the subject matter hereto and supersede all prior understandings and other communications between the parties relating hereto.
