Axis' failure to enforce any right or provision of these Terms will not be considered a waiver of those rights. No waiver by either party of any breach or default hereunder will be deemed to be a waiver of any preceding or subsequent breach or default.
If any provision of these Terms of Service are determined to be illegal, invalid or unenforceable pursuant to applicable law including, but not limited to the warranty disclaimer and liability limitations set forth above, then the invalid or unenforceable provision will be deemed superseded by a valid, enforceable provision that most closely matches the intent of the original provision and the remainder of these Terms shall continue in effect.
Moreover, if any provision contained in this Agreement shall for any reason be held to be excessively broad as to duration, geographical scope, activity or subject, it shall be construed by limiting and reducing it, so as to be enforceable to the extent compatible with the applicable law as it shall then appear.
Any heading, caption or section title contained herein is inserted only as a matter of convenience, and in no way defines or explains any section or provision hereof.
Notices to You may be made via posting to the Service, by email, or by regular mail, in Axis's discretion. Axis may also provide notices of changes to these Terms of Service or other matters by displaying such notices or by providing links to such notices on the Service. Without limitation, You agree that a printed version of these Terms of Service and of any notice given in electronic form shall be admissible in judicial or administrative proceedings based upon or relating to these Terms of Service to the same extent and subject to the same conditions as other business documents and records originally generated and maintained in printed form.
