The invalidity or unenforceability of any provision of this Agreement in any jurisdiction shall not affect the validity or enforceability of any such provision in any other jurisdiction. 
 
g. Waiver of Breach. The failure of either party to enforce strict performance by the other of any provision of this Agreement, or to exercise any right available to the party under this Agreement, shall not be construed as a waiver of such party’s right to enforce strict performance in the same or any other instance. 
 
h. Opportunity for Counsel Review. The parties expressly acknowledge that each has read the terms of this Agreement and that each party has had the opportunity to discuss the terms of this Agreement with independent legal counsel. 
 
i. Force Majeure. Neither party will be liable for a delay in performing its obligations under this Agreement to the extent that delay is caused by insurrection, war, riot, explosion, nuclear incident, fire, flood, earthquake, or other catastrophic event beyond the reasonable control of the affected party, provided the affected party immediately notifies the other party and takes reasonable and expedient action to resume operations.
