In lieu of such illegal, invalid, or unenforceable provision, the Parties shall negotiate one or more provisions as similar in terms as may be legal, valid and enforceable under applicable law. The failure of Seller to enforce any applicable provision of these Domestic Terms of Sale, or to require at any time performance by Buyer of any provision or obligation related to an Order or these terms hereof, shall in no way be construed to be a waiver of such provision, nor in any way affect the validity of an Order, these terms, or any part hereof, or the right of Seller thereafter to enforce each and every provision.
Remedies. Except as provided in Sections 5 through 7, the parties’ rights and remedies hereunder are cumulative.

Software will be licensed in accordance with the License provided with the Product. If no software license is provided and the Product contains software or firmware, then Seller grants to Buyer and Buyer’s customer (if applicable) a nonexclusive, royalty-free, limited license to use such software or firmware and software documentation only for the purpose of operating and maintaining the Product on which it is installed.
