10.3 Third Parties
Nothing in this Agreement shall be construed to provide any rights, remedies or benefits to any person or entity not a party to this Agreement.
10.4 Assignability and Inurement
You may not assign this Agreement, by operation of law or otherwise, without Our prior written consent. Subject to that restriction, this Agreement will be binding on, inure to the benefit of, and enforceable against You and Us and Your and Our respective successors and assigns.
Our failure to enforce Your strict performance of any provision of this Agreement will not constitute nor be construed as a waiver of Our right to subsequently enforce such provision or any other provision of this Agreement.
Our rights and remedies hereunder shall be mutually exclusive, i.e., the exercise of one or more of the provisions of this Agreement shall not preclude the exercise of any other provision. You acknowledge, confirm, and agree that damages may be inadequate for a breach or a threatened breach of this Agreement and, in the event of a breach or threatened breach of any provision of this Agreement, the respective rights and obligations of the parties may be enforceable by specific performance, injunction, or other equitable remedy. Nothing contained in this Agreement shall limit or affect any of Our rights at law, or otherwise, for a breach or threatened breach of any provision of this Agreement, it being the intent of this provision to make clear that Our respective rights and obligations shall be enforceable in equity as well as at law or otherwise.
Whenever possible, each provision of this Agreement shall be interpreted in such a manner as to be effective and valid under applicable law but, if any provision of this Agreement is held to be invalid, illegal or unenforceable in any respect, such provision will be ineffective only to the extent of such invalidity, or unenforceability, without invalidating the remainder of this Agreement or any provision hereof. No waiver will be implied from conduct or failure to enforce any rights and must be in writing to be effective.
This agreement will stay in effect for so long as LeoVegas makes this service available, unless this agreement is terminated prior thereto in terms of clause 6.0 above.
