Any waiver or failure by HECTV.ORG to enforce any provision of these Terms of Use on one occasion will not be deemed a waiver by HECTV.ORG of any other provision or of such provision on any other occasion. If any provision of these Terms of Use is held to be unenforceable, that provision will be removed to the extent necessary to comply with the law, replaced by a provision that most closely approximates the original intent and economic effect of the original to the extent consistent with the law, and the remaining provisions will remain in full force.
