17. GENERAL PROVISIONS.
17.1 Electronic Communications.

For contractual purposes, you (1) consent to receive communications from Maisonette in an electronic form; and (2) agree that all terms and conditions, agreements, notices, disclosures, and other communications and documents that Maisonette provides to you electronically will have the same legal effect that such communications or documents would have if they were set forth in “writing.” The foregoing sentence does not affect your statutory rights.
17.2 Assignment. This Agreement, and your rights and obligations hereunder, may not be assigned, subcontracted, delegated or otherwise transferred by you without Maisonette’s prior written consent, and any attempted assignment, subcontract, delegation, or transfer in violation of the foregoing will be null and void.
17.3 Force Majeure. Maisonette shall not be liable for any delay or failure to perform resulting from causes outside its reasonable control, including, but not limited to, acts of God, war, terrorism, riots, embargos, acts of civil or military authorities, fire, floods, accidents, strikes or shortages of transportation facilities, fuel, energy, labor or materials.

You may give notice to Maisonette at the following address: Maisonette Inc., 55 Washington Street, Suite 620, Brooklyn, New York 11201. Such notice shall be deemed given when received by Maisonette by letter delivered by nationally recognized overnight delivery service or first class postage prepaid mail at the above address.
17.8 Waiver. Any waiver or failure to enforce any provision of this Agreement on one occasion will not be deemed a waiver of any other provision or of such provision on any other occasion.
17.9 Severability. Subject to Section 16.5, if any portion of this Agreement is held invalid or unenforceable, that portion shall be construed in a manner to reflect, as nearly as possible, the original intention of the parties, and the remaining portions shall remain in full force and effect.
