XX. FORCE MAJEURE
Neither Party shall be responsible for any failure to perform its obligations under these Terms, except for your obligation to pay for Services already provided by us, if such failure is unforeseeable by the affected Party or beyond the reasonable control of the affected Party, such as acts of God, acts of civil or military authority, government regulations, labor strikes, embargoes, epidemics, war, terrorist acts, riots, insurrections, fires, explosions, earthquakes, nuclear accidents, floods, power blackouts, volcanic action, other major environmental disturbances or unusually severe weather conditions.
You may not assign or otherwise transfer this Agreement or any of your rights or obligations hereunder without BOOKTRADES's prior written consent, which may not be unreasonably withheld. Any such attempt is void. If, notwithstanding the foregoing, this Agreement is assigned pursuant to the provisions of the United States Bankruptcy Code or similar foreign statute (or any future United States or foreign bankruptcy law), the assignee hereof shall be deemed, without further act or deed, to have assumed all of the obligations of the assigning Party hereunder. Any such assignee shall, upon demand, execute and deliver to BOOKTRADES an instrument confirming such assumption. Subject to the foregoing, this Agreement shall be binding upon and inure to the benefit of the Parties and their respective successors and assigns.
These Terms (including any amendment agreed upon by the parties in writing) represent the complete agreement between us concerning its subject matter, and supersedes all prior agreements and representations between the parties.

A waiver of any default is not a waiver of any subsequent default. The relationship between BOOKTRADES and you is not one of a legal partnership relationship, but is one of independent contractors. These Terms shall be binding upon and inure to the benefit of the respective successors and assigns of the parties hereto.
