In the event that a clause of the GTC is found to be null and void, inapplicable, unenforceable or of no effect, it shall not entail the nullity of the GTC and the validity of the other provisions shall not be affected.
The temporary or permanent inapplication of one or more clauses by the Company shall not constitute a waiver of the other clauses of these GTC, which shall continue to have effect.
The Client agrees that the Company may assign this agreement to its affiliates or to a purchaser without the Client's prior consent, provided that such assignment is not likely to result in a diminution of the rights of the Client.
