If such reformation is not possible in a manner that is enforceable, then such term will be severed from the remaining terms, and the remaining terms will remain in effect.
No Waiver. No waiver of any term or condition of this Agreement will be valid or binding on either Party unless the same will have been mutually assented to in writing by an officer of both Parties. The failure of either Party to enforce at any time any of the provisions of this Agreement, or the failure to require at any time performance by the other Party of any of the provisions of this Agreement, will in no way be construed to be a present or future waiver of such provisions nor in any way affect the ability of either Party to enforce each and every such provision thereafter.

No rule of construction resolving any ambiguity in favor of the non-drafting Party shall be applied hereto.

Assignment. Neither Party may assign, delegate, or otherwise transfer this Agreement, in whole or in part, without the prior written consent of the other Party, and any purported assignment shall be void and of no force or effect; provided that either Party may assign this Agreement, in whole, without such consent to: (a) its affiliate; or (b) its successor-in-interest in connection with a change of control (whether by merger, sale of voting securities or assets, consolidation, reorganization, or otherwise), in each case so long as the assignee agrees in writing to be bound by the terms of this Agreement.
