If any of the provisions of this Agreement, or any relevant terms and conditions, policies and notices, are held by a court or other tribunal of competent jurisdiction, whether due to being void, invalidity, illegality, unlawfulness or for any reason whatever, shall, in such jurisdiction only and only to the extent that it is so unenforceable, be treated as void and the remaining provisions of any relevant terms and conditions, policies and notices shall remain in full force and effect. HighEdWeb’s failure to insist on or enforce strict performance of the Agreement shall not be construed as a waiver by HighEdWeb of any provision or any right it has to enforce the Agreement, nor shall any course of conduct between HighEdWeb and you or any other party be deemed to modify any provision of the Agreement. The Agreement shall not be interpreted or construed to confer any rights or remedies on or to any third parties.
