Each PARTY will act in the capacity of independent contractor, and not as representative of another PARTY for any purpose.
13.3. If any of the PARTIES fails to require within the due time the fulfillment of any provisions of the AGREEMENT, or of any rights related to them, or fails to exercise any right provided for herein, this will not be considered novation or waiver of such provisions, rights or entitlements, and will not affect by any means whatsoever the validity of the AGREEMENT.
