Waiver Of Contractual Right. The failure of either party to enforce any provision of this Extension shall not be construed as a waiver or limitation of that party's right to subsequently enforce and compel strict compliance with every provision of this Extension.

No Representation. Neither party has made any representations nor promises, other than those contained in this agreement or in some further writing signed by the party making the representation or promise.
