If any provision of these Terms of Use is found to be invalid or unenforceable by any court having competent jurisdiction, then that provision shall be deemed severable from this agreement and shall not affect the validity and enforceability of any remaining provisions. The failure of CFG to insist upon or enforce any of the provisions of these Terms of Use, or to exercise any rights or remedies under these Terms of Use, will not be construed as a waiver of CFG's right to assert or rely upon any such provisions, rights, or remedies in that or any other instance; rather, the same will be and remain in full force and effect. No waiver of any term of these Terms of Use shall be deemed a further or continuing waiver of such term or any other term.

To the fullest extent permitted by applicable law: (i) no arbitration will be joined to an arbitration involving any other current or former customer, end user or licensee of CFG, whether through class arbitration proceedings or otherwise; (ii) no finding or stipulation of fact in any other arbitration, judicial or similar proceeding may be given preclusive or collateral estoppel effect in any arbitration hereunder (unless determined in another proceeding between the parties); (iii) and no conclusion of law in any other arbitration may be given any weight in any arbitration hereunder (unless determined in another proceeding between the parties). The parties agree to share equally in the arbitration costs incurred. In the event any litigation is brought by either party in connection with these Terms of Use, the prevailing party in such litigation shall be entitled to recover from the other party all the reasonable costs, attorneys’ fees and other expenses incurred by such prevailing party in the litigation.
