13.4. Independent Parties. Customer and ScyllaDB are independent contractors, and neither party, nor any of their respective affiliates, is an agent of the other for any purpose or has the authority to bind the other. The Agreement does not create any third-party beneficiary rights in any individual or entity that is not a party to this Agreement. Either party’s failure to enforce any provision of this Agreement will not constitute a present or future waiver of such provision nor limit our right to enforce such provision at a later time.
13.5. Integration. The Agreement, including the DPA and SLA sets forth the entire agreement between the parties on the subject hereof and supersedes any and all previously or currently existing oral or written agreements, understandings, memoranda, letters of intent, or representations on the subject matter hereof, as of the Effective Date.
13.6. Amendments. ScyllaDB may amend the terms set forth herein from time to time and such updated terms, once posted on ScyllaDB’s website, shall govern from the date on which it was posted. You hereby acknowledge that you will periodically review the terms of this Agreement, to see if any changes were introduced as reflected in the “Last Updated” date above.
13.7. Order of Precedence. In the event of any discrepancy between the terms and conditions of the Agreement and the terms and conditions of an Order Form, the terms and conditions of the Agreement shall govern unless explicitly stated otherwise in the Order Form. In the event the Order Form states that a PO from the Customer is required, then it is agreed that any terms and conditions inconsistent with the Order Form appearing in such PO, shall not be binding.
13.8. Severance. If any one or more of the terms of this Agreement shall for any reason be held to be invalid or unenforceable, such term shall be construed in a manner to enable it to be enforced to the extent compatible with applicable law. Any determination of the invalidity or unenforceability of any provision of this Agreement shall not affect the remaining provisions hereof unless the business purpose of the terms is substantially frustrated thereby.
13.9. Third Party Beneficiary. The Agreement is not intended to and shall not be construed to give any third party any interest or rights (including, without limitation, any third party beneficiary rights) with respect to or in connection with any agreement or provision contained hereunder or contemplated hereby, except as otherwise expressly provided for in this Agreement.
13.10. Duly Authorized Signatories. Each party hereto represents that its signatory whose signature appears on the Order Form has been and is on the date of the Order Form duly authorized by all necessary corporate or other appropriate action to execute the Order Form and enter into this Agreement.
13.11. Electronic Signatures. The Parties hereto consent to the execution of the Order Form by electronic signatures and agree that such signatures shall be treated, for purpose of validity, enforceability and admissibility the same as hand-written signatures.
