Each Order is hereby incorporated by reference herein. Notwithstanding anything herein, unless otherwise specified in an Order, any Services for which Encamp is engaged commencing within thirty (30) days’ of a filing due date will not result in any liability to Encamp in the event Encamp is unable to timely make the applicable filing by such filing due date.

Each Authorized User will provide true and accurate identification information to Encamp for purposes of establishing the Login, and will promptly update Encamp of any changes in the information provided. Only the applicable Authorized User may access the Platform via such Authorized User’s Login and it is Customer and each Authorized User’s obligation and responsibility to maintain the confidentiality and not share Login credentials.

Encamp is not responsible for unauthorized access to the Platform via Customer’s Login.

Accordingly, Customer will provide Encamp with any necessary items and assistance in a timely manner, including any items and assistance identified in the applicable Order.

Encamp may engage subcontractors in performance of the Services; provided, that Encamp will remain responsible and liable for such subcontractors’ compliance with the terms and conditions of this Agreement.

This Agreement and any Statements of Work contain the final and complete agreement between the Parties for the provision of the Platform and performance of the Services and supersede all prior and contemporaneous conduct, agreements, statements, representations, negotiations, course of conduct, course of dealing, and communications pertaining to those Services and the Platform, whether written or oral. This Agreement cannot be modified or amended, except in accordance with a written agreement signed by an authorized representative of each Party. In the event of any conflict between this Agreement and a Order, the terms and conditions of this Agreement will govern unless such Order expressly amends such terms and conditions, in which case such amended terms and conditions will govern with respect to such Order only.
10.4 Force Majeure. Each Party will be excused from performance for any period during which, and to the extent that, it is prevented from performing any of its obligations under this Agreement, in whole or in part, as a result of a cause beyond its reasonable control and without its fault or negligence, including, but not limited to, acts of God, acts of war, epidemics, fire, communication line failures, power failures, earthquakes, floods, blizzard, or other natural disasters (but excluding failure caused by a party’s financial condition or any internal labor problems (including strikes, lockouts, work stoppages or slowdowns, or the threat thereof)) (a “Force Majeure Event”).

10.6 Waiver. A Party’s failure or delay in enforcing the terms and conditions of this Agreement or in insisting upon strict performance of any of the other Party’s obligations will not be interpreted as a waiver thereof. Waiver of any provision of this Agreement by either Party will only be effective if in writing and will not be interpreted as a waiver of any subsequent breach or failure under the same or any other provision of this Agreement. No conduct, statement, course of conduct, course of dealing, oral expression, or other action will be construed as a waiver.
10.7 Severability. If any provision of this Agreement is found to be unenforceable or invalid, that provision will be limited or eliminated to the minimum extent necessary so that this Agreement will otherwise remain in full force and effect and enforceable.
