10.2 Independent Contractors. The Parties to this Agreement are independent contractors.

10.4 No Waiver. The waiver by either Party of any breach of this Agreement by the other Party in a particular instance shall not operate as a waiver of subsequent or other earlier breaches of the same or a different kind.
