4.3. Entire Agreement. This Agreement, the Appendix and any duly executed

amendments or exhibits thereto shall constitute the complete agreement of

the parties relating to the matters specified in this Agreement and

supersede all prior representations or agreements, whether oral or written,

with respect to such matters. No oral modification or waiver of any of the

provisions of this agreement shall be binding on either party. No

electronic or communications failure) which prevents such party from

transmitting or receiving any documents and which, by the exercise of due

diligence, such party is unable to prevent or overcome.

this Agreement and shall be set forth in the Appendix.
