Exercise of rights
A party may exercise a right, power or remedy at its discretion, and separately or concurrently with another right, power or remedy. A single or partial exercise of a right, power or remedy by a party does not prevent a further exercise of that or any other right, power or remedy and failure by a party to exercise, or delay by a party in exercising a right, power or remedy does not prevent its exercise. Except where expressly stated to the contrary in this agreement, the rights of a party under this agreement are cumulative and are in addition to any other rights available to that party whether those rights are provided for under this agreement or by law.

No adverse construction
No term or condition of this agreement will be construed adversely to a party solely on the ground that the party was responsible for the preparation of this agreement or that provision.

Severability
Each provision of this agreement is individually severable. If any provision is or becomes illegal, unenforceable or invalid in any jurisdiction it is to be treated as being severed from this agreement in the relevant jurisdiction, but the rest of this agreement will not be affected.

Time of essence
Time is of the essence for the performance by each party of its obligations under this agreement.

Waivers
A waiver or relaxation of any right, power or remedy under this agreement must be in writing signed by the party granting it. A waiver only affects the particular obligation or breach for which it is given. It is not an implied waiver of any other obligation or breach of an implied waiver of that obligation or breach on any other occasion. The fact that a party fails to do, or delays in doing, something the party is entitled to do under this agreement does not amount to a waiver.

Release
You release Picture Framing Fourways (and Picture Framing Fourways’s officers, directors, agents, subsidiaries, joint ventures and employees) from any and all claims, demands and damages (actual and consequential) of every kind and nature, known and unknown, suspected and unsuspected, disclosed and undisclosed, arising out of or in any way connected with disputes with one or more Users, or an outside party.
