You expressly acknowledge and agree that any provision which is deemed invalid or unenforceable under clause 24.1 it shall be replaced with a valid and/or enforceable provision that most closely approximates the intent and economic effect of the invalid and/or unenforceable provision and such provision shall be interpreted to the benefit of By Mates.
This Service Agreement incorporates the terms and conditions of the Contractual Documents which constitute the entire agreement between You and By Mates with respect to the subject matter contained therein and supersedes any and all prior agreements, understandings and or negotiations.
