Even if the law will not enforce a provision of this Agreement in a particular instance, the parties intend to remain bound by the other, enforceable provisions. If the unenforceable provision could be interpreted in a manner that would render it enforceable, while still reflecting the parties’ mutual intent, they intend for that interpretation to apply. If permitted by law, the parties also intend for the provision that cannot be enforced in that instance to remain applicable in any other instances when it can be enforced.
