Compliance with these Terms may be waived (either generally or in a particular instance and either retroactively or prospectively) by the party entitled to enforce such term, but any such waiver shall be effective only if in a writing signed by the party against which such waiver is to be asserted. Except as otherwise provided herein, no failure or delay of any party in exercising any power or right under these Terms shall operate as a waiver thereof, nor shall any single or partial exercise of any such right or power, or any abandonment or discontinuance of steps to enforce such right or power preclude any other or further exercise thereof or the exercise of any other right or power.
It is hereby agreed and understood that NS&FI is entering into these Terms as an independent contractor and that all of its personnel engaged in work to be done under these Terms are to be considered as employees of NS&FI and under no circumstances shall they be construed or considered to be employees of yours.

Nothing in these Terms will be interpreted as creating any relationship of principal and agent, partnership or joint venture between the parties. Neither you nor NS&FI will represent in any manner to any third party that NS&FI is an agent of, or affiliated with, you in any capacity other than as an independent contractor, and nothing in these Terms shall be construed to be inconsistent with such status.

(D) You further confirm that with respect to any goods you now have in storage, or will store in the future with NS&FI which, due to such federal, province or local laws, statutes, ordinances or regulations applicable to the goods, require special handling, storage, stacking segregation of commodities, documentation, records certification, reports of other treatment beyond that normally afforded by NS&FI to goods generally, you will furnish NS&FI for goods now in storage in writing for each item tendered for storage in the future, with all information and instructions necessary to conform with the requirements applicable to your goods.
(E) You agree to indemnify and save NS&FI harmless against any and all liabilities, laws, damages, costs or expenses which NS&FI may incur, suffer or be required to pay by reason of any failure of the aforementioned representations, agreements and guarantees of the undersigned.
These Terms shall be governed and construed in accordance with the laws of the Province of British Columbia and the laws of Canada applicable therein and you hereby irrevocably attorn to the jurisdiction of the courts of British Columbia, without regard to its conflict of law provisions.
NS&FI’s failure to enforce any right or provision of these Terms will not be considered a waiver of those rights. If any provision of these Terms is held to be invalid or unenforceable by a court, the remaining provisions of these Terms will remain in effect. These Terms constitute the entire agreement between both parties regarding this Service, and supersede and replace any prior agreements that might have had between you and NS&FI regarding the Service.
NS&FI reserves the right, at its sole discretion, to modify or replace these Terms at any time. If a revision is material NS&FI will provide at least 30 days notice prior to any new terms taking effect. What constitutes a material change will be determined at NS&FI’s sole discretion.
By continuing to access or use NS&FI’s Service after any revisions become effective, you agree to be bound by the revised terms. If you do not agree to the new terms, you are no longer authorized to use the Service.
