23. Autonomy of clauses and severability

If one or more stipulations of the T&Cs were declared void pursuant to a law, regulation or following a final decision by a competent court, the other stipulations will retain their full force and scope, to the extent permitted by that decision. In addition, the fact for a party not to avail itself of a breach by the other party of any of the provisions of the T&Cs cannot be interpreted as a waiver on its part to avail itself in the future of such a failure.
