(c) Each party’s obligation to indemnify the other party hereunder will be conditioned upon the indemnified party promptly notifying the indemnifying party in writing of any such claim (however, failure of the indemnified party to so promptly notify the indemnifying party will not relieve the indemnifying party of its obligations hereunder, except to the extent that such failure to give notice materially prejudices the indemnifying party’s ability to defend such claim), promptly tendering the control of the defense and settlement of any such claim to the indemnifying party (at the indemnifying party’s expense and with the indemnifying party’s choice of counsel), and cooperating reasonably with the indemnifying party in defending or settling such claim including, but not limited to, providing any information or materials necessary for the indemnifying party to perform the foregoing.

The indemnified party will have the right to participate in the settlement or defense of any such claim at its own expense.
(a) Force Majeure. Neither party shall be liable in damages for any delay or default in performance of this Agreement if such delay or default is caused by unforeseen conditions beyond the reasonable control of the delaying or defaulting party, including acts of God, restrictions by a government authority, wars, revolutions, terrorism, strikes (other than any strike by the delaying or defaulting party’s employees), fires, floods, earthquakes, embargoes, or degradation of telephone or other communications services, including but not limited to, degradation of all or part of an Internet backbone.

(c) Entire Agreement. This Agreement sets forth the entire agreement between the parties with respect to the subject matter hereof, and supersedes any and all prior and contemporaneous agreements, communications, and understandings (whether written or oral) between the parties with respect to their subject matter. No party has been induced to enter into this Agreement by virtue of, and is not relying upon, any representations or warranties not set forth in this Agreement, any correspondence or communication preceding the execution of this Agreement, or any prior course of dealing between the parties. If there is any conflict between the terms of these Terms and any IO, the terms of the IO will govern and control to the extent of the conflict.

This Agreement shall be interpreted and enforced in all respects under the laws of the State of Missouri, as applicable to contracts to be performed entirely within the State of Missouri. Any litigation arising out of this Agreement will be brought solely and exclusively in the state or federal courts located in Kansas City, Missouri, and the parties agree that jurisdiction and venue properly lie in such courts and waive any claim that a proceeding in any such court has been brought in an inconvenient forum.
(e) Waiver. Failure by a party to enforce at any time or for any period of time any provisions of this Agreement shall not be construed as a waiver of such provisions, and shall in no way affect a party’s right to later enforce such provisions. No provision or part of this Agreement or remedy hereunder may be waived except by a writing signed by a duly authorized representative of the party making the waiver.
(f) Severability. If any one or more of the provisions of this Agreement shall for any reason be held to be invalid, illegal or unenforceable by a court of law, the remaining provisions of this Agreement shall be unimpaired, and the invalid, illegal or unenforceable provision shall be replaced if possible by a mutually acceptable provision, which being valid, legal and enforceable, comes closest to the intention of the parties underlying the invalid, illegal or unenforceable provision.
