13. OTHER GENERAL PROVISIONS
These Terms are for the benefit of Lineocode and the Providers, its and their officers, directors, employees, affiliated or related entities, agents, licensors, and suppliers. Each of these individuals or entities shall have the right to assert and enforce these Terms directly against you on its (or their own) behalf.

If any provision of these Terms is held to be invalid or unenforceable, such provision will be struck and the remaining provisions enforced. Headings are for reference purposes only.
You and Lineocode are dealing at arms’ length, creating a commercial relationship. Lineocode is not your Agent or your fiduciary.
