15.  Assignment. 
You may not assign or transfer any rights you may have arising under the Terms, by operation of law or otherwise, without Buddy’s Pizza’s prior written consent.  Any attempt by you to assign or transfer any rights you may have arising under the Terms, without such consent, will be null and of no effect.  Buddy's Pizza may assign its rights and duties under this Agreement to any party at any time without notice to you.  Subject to the foregoing, these Terms will bind and inure to the benefit of the parties, their successors and permitted assigns.

YOU FURTHER AGREE THAT YOU MAY ONLY BRING A CLAIM IN YOUR INDIVIDUAL CAPACITY AND NOT AS A PLAINTIFF OR CLASS MEMBER IN ANY PURPORTED CLASS OR REPRESENTATIVE ACTION. 

In light of the nature of this Agreement, you understand and agree that money damages may be insufficient to rectify your breach of these Terms and that, consequently, you agree that Buddy's Pizza will be irreparably damaged by any breach by you of these terms, thus it will be entitled to injunctive relief upon said breach by you.

If for any reason a court of competent jurisdiction finds any provision of the Terms invalid or unenforceable, that provision will be enforced to the maximum extent permissible and the other provisions of the Terms will remain in full force and effect.

The Terms comprise the full and final understanding between you and Buddy's Pizza and merges and supersedes any and all other agreements, understandings or representations, written or oral, with respect to the subject matter hereof. The Terms may not be modified except by a writing (in paper or electronic form) signed by you and by an authorized representative of Buddy's Pizza, and referring specifically to the Terms. Neither the course of conduct between the parties nor trade practice shall act to modify any provision of the Terms.

20. Severability.
The provisions of the Terms are severable, and in the event any provision hereof is determined to be invalid or unenforceable for any reason, such invalidity or unenforceability shall not in any way affect the validity or enforceability of the remaining provisions.
