11.3. Relationship of the Parties. Scoir is an independent contractor to Customer. This Agreement does not create a partnership, franchise, joint venture, agency, fiduciary or employment relationship between the parties.
11.4. No Third-Party Beneficiaries. There are no third-party beneficiaries under this Agreement.
11.5. Contract for Services. This Agreement is a contract for the provision of services and not a contract for the sale of goods.

If this Agreement or either party’s performance under it causes, creates, or involves a violation of law, rule, order, or regulation, or threatens to do so, or interferes with Customer’s non-profit status, rights, or privileges, then Customer may terminate this Agreement without liability.
11.8. Authority. Each party represents and warrants to the other that it has full power and authority to enter into this Agreement and that it is binding upon such party and enforceable in accordance with its terms. Customer further warrants and represents that it has the authority to procure its Affiliates compliance with the terms of this Agreement.
11.9. Governing Law. This Agreement shall be interpreted, governed and construed in accordance with the laws of the state where Customer is principally located; provided, however, that, if Customer is principally located outside the United States of America, then this Agreement shall be interpreted, governed, and construed in accordance with the laws of the State of Delaware.

11.10. Entire Agreement; Amendments. This Agreement, including all Order Forms hereunder and any subsequent modifications hereto, is the entire agreement between Customer and Scoir regarding Customer’s use of Services and it supersedes all prior and contemporaneous agreements, proposals or representations, written or oral, concerning its subject matter. This Agreement may be amended and the observance of any provision of this Agreement may be waived only with the signed written consent of both parties. Neither failure nor delay on the part of any party in exercising any right, power, or privilege hereunder shall operate as a waiver of such right, nor shall any single or partial exercise of any such right, power, or privilege preclude any further exercise thereof or the exercise of any other right, power, or privilege.
11.11. Assignment. Neither party may assign any of its rights or obligations hereunder, whether by operation of law or otherwise, without the other party’s prior written consent (not to be unreasonably withheld); provided, however, either party may assign this Agreement in its entirety (together with all Order Forms), without the other party’s consent in connection with a merger, acquisition, corporate reorganization, or sale of all or substantially all of its assets. Subject to the foregoing, this Agreement will bind and inure to the benefit of the parties, their respective successors and permitted assigns.
11.12. Waiver. No delay or omission of a party to exercise any right hereunder shall be construed as a waiver of any such right and such party reserves the right to exercise any such right from time to time, as often as may be deemed expedient.
11.13. Severability. Any provision of this Agreement that is prohibited or unenforceable in any jurisdiction shall, as to such jurisdiction, be ineffective to the extent of such prohibition or unenforceability without invalidating the remaining provisions of this Agreement, and any such prohibition or unenforceability in any jurisdiction shall not invalidate or render unenforceable such provision in any other jurisdiction. Notwithstanding the foregoing, if such provision could be more narrowly drawn so as not to be prohibited or unenforceable in such jurisdiction while, at the same time, maintaining the intent of the parties, it shall, as to such jurisdiction, be so narrowly drawn without invalidating the remaining provisions of this Agreement or affecting the validity or enforceability of such provision in any other jurisdiction.
11.14. Public Inspection of Agreement. Scoir acknowledges and agrees that this Agreement and all documents Scoir provides Customer as required herein, may, if and to the extent deemed public records under applicable law, be public records and may at all times be subject to public inspection.

Customer shall provide all notices to Scoir by sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. Each notice will be treated as received when the email is sent.
11.16. Electronic Signatures. Each of the parties consents to the use of electronic signatures as valid execution and delivery of this Agreement and any other document relating thereto.
