No certification authority or third party verification is necessary to validate any electronic signature and the lack of such certification or verification will not in any way affect the enforceability of such signatures or documents. The use of electronic versions of such documents fully satisfies any requirement that such documents be provided to you in writing. If you sign electronically, you represent that you have the ability to access and retain a record of such documents. You agree that you are responsible for understanding these documents and agree to conduct business by electronic means. You are obligated to review the Site periodically for changes and modifications and agree not to contest the admissibility or enforceability of the Site’s electronically stored copies of these documents or these Terms in any proceeding arising out of these documents or these Terms.
(c) Although you consent to electronic delivery, you may elect to deliver communications by other means and such delivery will not affect your consent. You may revoke consent to electronic delivery of communications and receive a paper version at your election. Vianai will have a reasonable period to effect such a change and Vianai may charge you a reasonable fee for sending such paper copies. If you elect to use electronic delivery, you agree and represent that you have a suitable computer with Internet access, an email address and the availability to download, save and/or print communications to retain a record of such communications. You agree that you are solely responsible for maintaining such equipment and services required for online access.

You agree that no joint venture, partnership, employment or agency relationship exists between you and Vianai as a result of these Terms or use of the Site. If any provision of these Terms is found to be invalid by any court or arbitrator having competent jurisdiction, then the invalidity of such
provision will not affect the validity of the remaining provisions of these Terms, which will remain in full force and effect. Failure of Vianai to act on or enforce any provision of these Terms will not be construed as a waiver of that provision or any other provision in these Terms. No waiver will be effective against Vianai unless made in writing, and no such waiver will be construed as a waiver in any other or subsequent instance. The Section headings are provided merely for convenience and will not be given any legal import. These Terms will inure to the benefit of our successors and assigns.

These Terms may only be amended in a writing signed by you and an authorized representative of Vianai, except as provided in Section 1(a). No provision of these Terms is intended for the benefit of any third party, and the parties do not intend that any provision should be enforceable by a third party.
