16. SEVERABILITY; CLERICAL ERRORS; WAIVER; AUTHORIZED AGENTS:
The invalidity or unenforceability of any provision or clause of the Terms and Conditions of Sale shall not affect the validity or enforceability of any other provision or clause. Wonder Sign reserves the right to correct clerical or similar errors relating to price or any other term shown in these Terms and Conditions of Sale and/or any quotation or invoice issued from Wonder Sign to Customer. Failure of either party to insist, in any one or more instances, upon performance of any term, covenant or condition of these Terms and Conditions of Sale and/or any quotation or invoice issued from Wonder Sign to Customer shall not be construed as a waiver or relinquishment of any right granted hereunder or of the future performance of such term, covenant or condition. Wonder Sign reserves the right to amend these Terms and Conditions of Sale from time to time. Wonder Sign's sales representatives are without authority to change, modify, or alter these Terms and Conditions of Sale. The provisions of sections 2, 8, 12, 14, 15 and 16 shall survive termination of these Terms and Conditions of Sale and/or any quotation or invoice issued from Wonder Sign to Customer.
To the extent applicable, the products and all shipments are subject to compliance with the U.S. Export Administration Act, as amended, the regulations thereunder and all other U.S. laws and regulations concerning exports and reexports. Customer agrees to comply with all such laws and regulations.
These Terms and Conditions of Sale and/or any quotation or invoice issued from Wonder Sign to Customer is binding upon and inures to the benefit of Customer and Wonder Sign and their respective successors and assigns.

Each party anticipates that it may be necessary to provide access to information of a confidential or proprietary nature of such party, including its affiliates or of a third party, (hereinafter referred to as "Proprietary Information") to the other party in the performance of this Agreement. "Proprietary Information" means any information or data in oral and/or in written form which the receiving party knows or has reason to know is proprietary information and which is disclosed by a party in connection with this Agreement or which the receiving party may have access to in connection with this Agreement. Proprietary Information will not include information which: (a) becomes known to the public from a source other than the receiving party; (b) was known to the receiving party, or becomes known to the receiving party from a third party having the right to disclose it and having no obligation of confidentiality to the disclosing party with respect to the applicable information; or (c) is independently developed by personnel of the receiving party who have not had access to such information. To the extent practicable, Proprietary Information should be clearly identified or labeled as such by the disclosing party at the time of disclosure or as promptly thereafter as possible, however, failure to so identify or label such Proprietary Information will not be evidence that such information is not proprietary or protectable. Each party agrees to hold such Proprietary Information confidential in the same manner as it holds its own Proprietary Information of like kind. Disclosures of Proprietary Information will be restricted to those individuals who are participating in the performance of this Agreement and need to know such Proprietary Information for purposes of this Agreement. Upon the request of a party, the other party will either return or certify the destruction of the Proprietary Information of the other party.
If a receiving party is required by law, rule or regulation, or requested in any judicial or administrative proceeding or by any governmental or regulatory authority, to disclose the Proprietary Information, the receiving party will give the disclosing party prompt notice of such request so that disclosing party may seek an appropriate protective order or similar protective measure.
