Upon termination, all rights and obligations created by this Agreement will terminate, except that Sections 1-3, 5-7, 9-10, and 12-25 will survive any termination of this Agreement. For clarification, termination of this Agreement will not relieve You of Your obligation to pay any fees owed K&K, including without limitation the fees outlined in Section 6 and/or Section 14.
All notices required or permitted to be given under this Agreement must be in writing. K&K shall give any notice by email sent to the most recent email address, if any, provided by the intended recipient to K&K. YOU BEAR THE SOLE RESPONSIBILITY OF ENSURING THAT YOUR EMAIL ADDRESS ON FILE WITH K&K IS ACCURATE AND CURRENT, AND NOTICE TO YOU SHALL BE DEEMED EFFECTIVE UPON THE SENDING BY K&K OF AN EMAIL TO THAT ADDRESS. You shall give any notice to K&K by means of: (i) hand delivery; (ii) certified U.S. mail, return receipt requested, postage prepaid; or (iii) overnight courier, each as send to Keyt & Keyt, LLP, Attn: Richard Keyt,, 7373 E. Doubletree Ranch Road, Suite 165, Scottsdale, AZ 85258.

This Agreement constitutes the entire agreement between K&K and You concerning Your use of the Website and Services, and supersedes all prior agreements and representations. This Agreement may only be modified by a written amendment signed by an authorized executive of K&K, or by Your acceptance of an updated version of this Agreement. If any part of this Agreement is held invalid or unenforceable, that part will be construed to reflect the parties’ original intent, and the remainder of this Agreement will not be affected thereby, and each remaining term and provision of this Agreement will be valid and be enforced to the fullest extent permitted by law. A waiver by either party of any term or condition of this Agreement or any breach thereof, in any one instance, will not waive such term or condition or any subsequent breach thereof. This Agreement and all of Your rights and obligations hereunder will not be assignable or transferable by You without the prior written consent of K&K. This Agreement will be binding upon and will inure to the benefit of the parties, their successors and permitted assigns. You and K&K are independent contractors, and no agency, partnership, joint venture or employee-employer relationship is intended or created by this Agreement. Except for the Indemnified Parties, the terms and provisions of this Agreement are intended solely for the benefit of each party hereto and their respective successors or permitted assigns, and it is not the intention of the parties to confer third-party beneficiary rights upon any other person. Notwithstanding the foregoing, You acknowledge and agree that any actual or threatened breach of this Agreement or infringement of proprietary or other third party rights by You would cause irreparable injury to K&K and K&K’s licensors and suppliers, and would therefore entitle K&K or K&K’s licensors or suppliers, as the case may be, to injunctive relief. The headings in this Agreement are for the purpose of convenience only and shall not limit, enlarge, or affect any of the covenants, terms, conditions or provisions of this Agreement. The parties agree time is strictly of the essence with respect to each and every term, condition, obligation and provision hereof. You will, whenever and as often as it shall be requested to do so by K&K, execute, acknowledge and deliver, or cause to be executed, acknowledged and delivered, any and all such approvals, consents and any and all other documents and do any and all other acts as may be necessary to carry out the intent and purpose of this Agreement.
