You waive any and all objections to the exercise of jurisdiction over you by such courts and to venue in such courts.
9. Waiver and Severability
No waiver by Company of any term or condition set forth in any Applicable Term shall be deemed a further or continuing waiver of such term or condition or a waiver of any other term or condition, and any failure of Company to assert a right or provision under any Applicable Term shall not constitute a waiver of such right or provision.
If any provision of this Policy or any other Applicable Term is held by a court or other tribunal of competent jurisdiction to be invalid, illegal, or unenforceable for any reason, a suitable and equitable provision will be substituted therefor to carry out the original intent as closely as possible, and the remaining provisions will continue in full force and effect.
