Where requested by law or arbitration, of course, you are not prohibited from sharing your thoughts and opinions as part of the legal process.
If any provisions in the Agreement are construed by a court of competent jurisdiction to be void or unenforceable for any reason, it shall be deemed to be severed from the Agreement and shall not affect the validity or enforceability of all other provisions in the Agreement, which shall remain in full force.
