No delay or failure by SuiteFiles to exercise any powers, rights or remedies under these Terms will operate as a waiver of them nor will any single or partial exercise of any such powers, rights or remedies preclude any other or further exercise of them.
If any provision of these Terms or its application to any party or circumstance is or becomes invalid or unenforceable to any extent, the remainder of these Terms and its application will not be affected and will remain enforceable to the greatest extent permitted by law.
You may not assign these Terms, in whole or in part, without SuiteFiles prior written consent, and any assignment without such consent is null and void.
