Integration and Severability.

These Terms are the entire agreement between you and BioData with respect to the Site, Content and other parts of the Service, and supersede all prior or contemporaneous communications and proposals (whether oral, written or electronic) between you and BioData with respect to the same. If any provision of these Terms is found to be unenforceable or invalid, that provision will be limited or eliminated to the minimum extent necessary so that these Terms will otherwise remain in full force and effect and enforceable.

BioData shall not be liable for any failure to perform its obligations hereunder where such failure results from any cause beyond BioData’s reasonable control. These Terms are personal to you, and are not assignable, transferable or sublicensable by you except with BioData's prior written consent. BioData may assign, transfer or delegate any of its rights and obligations hereunder without consent. Any reference to “includes” and “including” shall mean including without limitation and general words shall not be given a restrictive meaning by reason of the fact that they are followed by particular examples intended to be embraced by the general words. No agency, partnership, joint venture, or employment relationship is created as a result of these Terms and neither party has any authority of any kind to bind the other in any respect. All notices under these Terms will be in writing and will be deemed to have been duly given when received, if personally delivered or sent by certified or registered mail, return receipt requested; when receipt is electronically confirmed, if transmitted by e-mail; or the business day after it is sent, if sent for next day delivery by recognized overnight delivery service.
