Neither party may transfer or assign its rights or obligations under these Terms without the other party’s express written consent. In the event that any term of these Terms is, becomes, or is declared to be invalid or void by any court or tribunal of competent jurisdiction, such terms shall be null and void and shall be deemed severed from these Terms and all the remaining terms of these Terms shall remain in full force and effect.
