The Agreement is binding on and inures to the benefit of the Parties to the Agreement and their respective permitted successors and permitted assigns.
6.2 Entire Agreement. The Agreement including the TCC Terms and Conditions constitutes the entire understanding and agreement between the Parties and supersedes all previous agreements (whether written or oral) concerning the Services.

The Agreement and all matters arising out of or relating to the Agreement, whether sounding in contract, tort, or statute are governed by, construed in accordance with and enforced under the laws of the State of New York, United States of America, without giving effect to the conflict of laws provisions thereof to the extent such principles or rules would require or permit the application of the laws of any jurisdiction other than those of the State of New York.

6.6 Severability. If any provision of the Agreement is declared or found to be prohibited, unenforceable, or void, the Parties will negotiate in good faith to agree upon a substitute provision that is valid, binding, and enforceable and is as nearly as possible consistent with the intentions underlying the original provision. If the Parties are unable to agree upon such substitute provision, the original provision will be stricken. If the remainder of the Agreement is capable of substantial performance, then the invalidity or unenforceability of any provision of the Agreement shall not affect the validity or enforceability of any other provision of the Agreement, which shall remain in full force and effect to the extent permitted by law.

6.8 Waiver. The failure of either Party to insist upon or enforce strict performance by the other
Party of any provision of the Agreement or to exercise any right under the Agreement will not be construed as a waiver or relinquishment to any extent of such Party’s right to assert or rely upon any such provision or right in that or any other instance.
6.9 Independent Parties. Nothing in the Agreement shall be deemed to constitute, create, give effect to, or otherwise recognize a partnership, joint venture or formal business entity of any
