If any part, paragraph or any portion of any section of this Agreement is determined to be unenforceable or invalid for any reason whatsoever that unenforceability or invalidity shall not affect the enforceability or validity of the remaining portions of this Agreement and such unenforceable or invalid part, paragraph or portion thereof shall be severed from the remainder of this Agreement.

Each party shall indemnify and hold the other harmless from and against any liability, claims, losses, costs, expenses, injuries or damages howsoever caused, by reason of any injury sustained to person or property, arising out of, associated with, or reasonably foreseeable as a result of a party’s act, negligence, default, or omission, and shall pay all sums to be paid or discharged in relation thereto. If either party is sued in any court by reason of the conduct of the party as described above, such other party will discharge any judgment rendered in favour of the opposing litigant. Nothing herein is intended to nor shall it relieve either party from liability for its own conduct.
