Class Action Waiver
All actions or proceedings to brought to resolve any Dispute will be conducted solely on an individual basis. Both You and The YARD will not seek to have the Dispute heard as a class action or in any other proceeding in which either party acts or proposes to act in a representative capacity. No proceeding will be combined with another without the prior written consent of both you and The YARD, as well as, any other party affected by the proceedings.
The YARD’s failure to insist upon strict enforcement of any provision of this agreement shall not be construed as a waiver of any provision or right thereunder.
You agree that the terms of this T&C are severable. If any term or provision is declared invalid or unenforceable, that term or provision will be construed consistent with applicable law to the fullest extent permitted under the law as nearly as possible to reflect the original intentions of the parties, and the remaining terms of the T&C will remain in full force and effect.
