14. MODIFICATIONS TO THE AGREEMENT.
Wayin reserves the right, at its discretion, to change this Agreement on a going-forward basis at any time. Client should check this Agreement periodically for changes.

If Wayin requires Client’s acceptance of the changed Agreement, changes are effective only after Client’s acceptance. If Client does not accept the changed Agreement, Wayin may terminate Client’s access to and use of the Wayin Services.

Disputes arising under this Agreement will be resolved in accordance with the Agreement in effect at the time the dispute arose.

15.7. Force Majeure. Except for the obligation to make payments, nonperformance of either party shall be excused to the extent that performance is rendered impossible by strikes or other labor problems, fire, flood, civil unrest, acts of terror, governmental acts or orders or restrictions, failure of suppliers, or any other reason where failure to perform is beyond the reasonable control of the non-performing party.
15.8. Headings. The titles of the sections of this Agreement are for convenience of reference only and are not to be considered in construing this Agreement. The words “include” and “including” as used in this Agreement are to be read as if they were followed by the phrase “without limitation”.
