30. Miscellaneous

1. Waiver: Failure by Supplier to enforce any of its rights under this Agreement shall not be taken as or deemed to be a waiver of that right nor shall it deprive that party of the right to insist on adherence to that term at some other time.

2. Modifications: Pilot-Call GmbH reserves the right to change the GTCs and other contractual provisions at any time. In case (i) the Agreement has been entered into for an undetermined period of time and (ii) Customer is considerably prejudiced by any such modifications, Customer shall be entitled to terminate the Agreement as per the date the modifications come into effect. The right of termination expires with the coming into effect of the modifications.

3. Assignment: Customer may not wholly or partly assign or pledge its rights and/or obligations hereunder to any third party, except with the prior written consent of Supplier. Such consent will not unreasonably be withheld or delayed.

6. Severability: If any provision of this Agreement shall be held to be invalid, illegal or unenforceable, the validity, legality and enforceability of the remaining provisions shall in no way be affected or impaired.
