16. Waiver. This Agreement, and any of its terms, may not be waived, altered, or modified except by a written agreement executed between the Customer and FTI. No delay or failure of either party in exercising any right and no partial or single exercise of any right shall be deemed to constitute a waiver of that right or any rights under this Agreement.
