Each provision in this Agreement shall be treated as a separate and independent clause, and the
unenforceability of any one clause shall in no way impair the enforceability of any of the other
clauses herein. Moreover, if one or more of the provisions contained in this Agreement shall, for
any reason, be held to be unenforceable, such provision shall be construed by a court of
competent jurisdiction and curtailed or "blue-penciled", so as to be enforceable to the extent
compatible with the applicable law.
