13.3 Independent Contractors. The parties agree that they are acting hereunder as independent contractors and that nothing in this Agreement shall be construed to constitute either party as a partner, employee or agent of the other (except for the limited purpose of offering the Merchant Location Services as defined herein), and no employee or agent of either party shall be deemed to be the employee or agent of the other. Neither party shall have the authority to make any agreement or commitment, nor incur any liability on behalf of the other, nor be liable for any acts or omissions of the other, except as specifically provided herein.

13.4 This Agreement, including, all Exhibits and Attachments hereto, and any documents incorporated by reference herein, constitutes the entire and sole agreement between the parties with respect to the subject matter herein. This Agreement supersedes all prior understandings, arrangements or agreements, whether verbal or written, between the parties hereto with respect to the subject matter of this Agreement. Provisions of this Agreement that concern or relate to obligations and duties to be performed after the termination of this Agreement shall survive termination of this Agreement to the extent reasonably necessary to effectuate the intent and purpose of such provisions. Except as provided hereinabove, no modification, renewal, extension or waiver of any of the provisions of this Agreement shall be binding upon the parties unless made in writing and signed by the parties. Emails, including emails that bear an electronic "signature block" identifying the sender, shall not constitute signed writings for purposes of this Agreement. No failure of either party to require performance by the other of any provision hereof shall be construed to be a modification of this Agreement or a waiver of any succeeding breach. If any provision of this Agreement is determined to be invalid by a court of competent jurisdiction, such provision shall be deemed void and the remainder of this Agreement shall continue in full force and effect. Except as expressly set forth herein, nothing contained in this Agreement is intended to confer upon any person not a party hereto any rights, benefits or remedies of any kind or character whatsoever, and no such person shall be deemed a third-party beneficiary under this Agreement. In the event this Agreement references more than one person, corporation, partnership or entity as Merchant, then it is expressly agreed that the liability of such persons or entities hereunder shall be both joint and several. This Agreement shall be construed and enforced in accordance with, and shall be governed by, the laws of the State of Illinois (without regard to any provisions concerning choice of law or conflict of laws which might result in the application of the law of another jurisdiction). In the event this Agreement is translated into a language other than English, it is done solely for convenience purposes, with only the signed English language version of this Agreement being valid and binding upon the parties.

The undersigned have executed the foregoing Agreement to be effective as of the date set forth above.
