18.2 Entire Agreement and Revisions. These Terms including any exhibits and Pricing Agreements, constitute the entire agreement, and supersede all prior or contemporaneous, written or oral understandings, communications or agreements between the Parties regarding such subject matter, including any click-wrap terms. Any use of Your pre-printed forms, such as purchase orders, are for convenience only, and any pre-printed terms and conditions set forth in Your printed forms that are in addition to, inconsistent or in conflict with, or different than, these Terms shall be null and void. Neither commencement of performance, nor failure to object to any additional or different terms and conditions from You, nor provision of the Virtual EPS services, by, in each case, Us or Our other Group Companies shall constitute an acceptance of any terms and conditions proposed by You that are in addition to, inconsistent or in conflict with, or different than, these Terms.

We may amend these Terms from time to time by posting the most current version on our site, in which case the new Terms will supersede prior versions. Please check these Terms periodically to take notice of changes as they will be binding on You.

The unenforceability of any provision in any jurisdiction shall not affect the enforceability of such provision in any other jurisdiction.

Any term of these Terms may be waived only by a separate written agreement signed by Our authorized representative.
