No failure by either party to exercise and no delay in exercising any right under this Agreement will be taken as a waiver of the right. No waiver of any right is effective unless made in writing.

The rights and remedies provided in this Agreement are cumulative and do not exclude any other rights provided by law.
 
We may assign this Agreement at any time. We may subcontract any of our obligations under this Agreement to any person.
