Any attempted or actual assignment thereof without Akius’ prior explicit and written consent will be null and void. In any event, an assignment or transfer pursuant to this Section ‎9.6 shall not in itself grant either Akius or you the right to cancel any Services or Third Party Services then in effect.

         9.7  Severability & Waivers

If any provision of the Akius Terms is deemed by a court of competent jurisdiction to be invalid, unlawful, void, or for any reason unenforceable, then such provision shall be deemed severable and will not affect the validity and enforceability of the remaining provisions. No Waiver of any breach or default of any of the Akius Terms shall be deemed to be a waiver of any preceding or subsequent breach or default.
