If a court of competent jurisdiction should declare any part of the Agreement unenforceable because of any unreasonable restriction of scope, duration or geographical area or any other reason, then each party hereby acknowledges and agrees that such court shall have the express authority to reform provisions of the Agreement to provide for reasonable restrictions and to grant such other relief at law or in equity as may be reasonably necessary to protect their interests. The parties agree that if either violates the Agreement and the other brings a legal action for injunctive relief, the term of the covenants described in the Agreement shall be deemed to have a duration specified in such covenant computed from the date such relief is granted, reduced by any time between when the period of restriction began to run and the date of first violation by either party.

If a court in any proceeding holds any provision of the Agreement or its application to any person or circumstance invalid, illegal or unenforceable, the remainder of the Agreement, or the application of such provision to persons or circumstances other than those to which it was held to be invalid, illegal or unenforceable, shall not be affected, and shall be valid, legal and enforceable to the fullest extent permitted by law.
- Publicity. HANDLE may reference Consignor as a customer. References to Consignor in HANDLE’s advertising and promotional materials will be subject to Consignor’s trademark and branding guidelines for its names and logos.
- Authorization. Each party hereto represents, warrants and covenants to the other party that the Agreement has been duly authorized and executed on behalf of such person and constitutes such person’s legal, valid and binding obligation, enforceable against it in accordance with its terms.
- Governing Law. This Agreement shall be governed by, and shall be construed and enforced in accordance with, the laws of the State of Kentucky, without giving effect to any conflict of law rule or principle of such state.

No party shall be deemed to have waived compliance by another party of any provision of the Agreement unless such waiver is in writing and signed by the waiving party. The failure of any party to enforce at any time any of the provisions of the Agreement or to exercise any right or option contained in the Agreement or to require at any time performance of any of the provisions of the Agreement, by any of the other parties shall not be construed to be a waiver of such provisions and shall not affect the validity of the Agreement or any of its provisions or the right of such party thereafter to enforce each provision of the Agreement.
