Uhive will notify you at least 20 Business Days in advance of any changes to the Terms by sending an email with details of the changes or notifying you of the change when you next access the Network.

26.2 No partnership or agency. Nothing in these Terms is intended to, or shall be deemed to, establish any partnership or joint venture between you or us, constitute either you or us as the agent of the other party, or authorise you or us to make or enter into any commitments for or on behalf of any other party. You confirm you are acting on your own behalf and not for the benefit of any other person.

26.3 Entire agreement. The Terms constitute the entire agreement between you and us and supersede and extinguish all previous agreements, promises, assurances, warranties, representations and understandings between you and us, whether written or oral, relating to its subject matter.

Nothing in this clause shall limit or exclude any liability for fraud.

26.5 Waiver. No failure or delay by us to exercise any right or remedy provided under these Terms or by law shall constitute a waiver of that or any other right or remedy, nor shall it prevent or restrict the further exercise of that or any other right or remedy.

26.6 Severance.

Any modification to or deletion of a provision or part-provision under this clause shall not affect the validity and enforceability of the rest of the Terms. If one party gives notice to the other of the possibility that any provision or part-provision of the Terms is invalid, illegal or unenforceable, the parties shall negotiate in good faith to amend such provision so that, as amended, it is legal, valid and enforceable, and, to the greatest extent possible, achieves the intended commercial result of the original provision.
