28.  Miscellaneous. These Terms together with any applicable Purchase Order constitute the entire and exclusive understanding and agreement between TruckSpy and you regarding the Products, and these Terms supersede and replace any and all prior oral or written understandings or agreements between TruckSpy and you regarding the Products. If there is a conflict between the terms of a Purchase Order and these Terms, then the terms of the Purchase Order control over these Terms. If for any reason a court of competent jurisdiction finds any provision of these Terms invalid or unenforceable, that provision will be enforced to the maximum extent permissible and the other provisions of these Terms will remain in full force and effect. You may not assign or transfer these Terms, by operation of law or otherwise, without TruckSpy’s prior written consent, except in the case of a merger, acquisition, or sale of all or substantially all assets of your company. Any attempt by you to assign or transfer these Terms, without such consent, will be void. TruckSpy may freely assign or transfer these Terms without restriction. Subject to the foregoing, these Terms will bind and inure to the benefit of the Parties, their successors and permitted assigns. Any notices or other communications provided by TruckSpy under these Terms, may be given: (i) via email; (ii) by posting to TruckSpy’s website; or (iii) by posting to the Services. For notices made by e-mail, the date of receipt will be deemed the date on which such notice is transmitted. Either Party’s failure to enforce any right or provision of these Terms will not be considered a waiver of such right or provision. The waiver of any such right or provision will be effective only if in writing and signed by a duly authorized representative of both Parties. Except as expressly set forth in these Terms, the exercise by either Party of any of its remedies under these Terms will be without prejudice to its other remedies under these Terms or otherwise.
