You understand, acknowledge, and agree that the requirement of a deposit or hold for your Reservation by WRP is a material condition of this Agreement and a fundamental element of the basis of the bargain between WRP and you. Accordingly, in the event that your bank or card issuer places any temporal restrictions on the length of authorization or pre-authorization hold, you agree to promptly provide any information to WRP necessary or appropriate for WRP to initiate a new hold, that may overlap with any prior hold, to ensure continuity of amounts available to WRP to charge in the event of any Loss arising out of or in connection with your Reservation.

In the event of any such termination, you agree that your reservation termination will be deemed a cancellation by you, as specified elsewhere in these Terms. Nothing in this subsection should be construed as limiting any of WRP’s rights, remedies, defenses, or ability to collect or pursue additional sums from you for violations of WRP’s rules, damages to an Accommodation, or otherwise, arising out of or in connection with these Terms.

Notwithstanding the foregoing, nothing in this section should be construed as limiting in any way any of WRP’s rights, remedies, or defenses in seeking recovery of any separate, determinable, or calculable actual damages.
11.Check-Out, Overstays. The check-out time at the Accommodation is as stated in the Listing for your Accommodation Period.

You agree that if you overstay by more than two (2) hours then WRP reserves the right to enter the Accommodation, whether directly or by an agent, and to remove your belongings, change the locks to the Accommodation, and take such further action as may be necessary or appropriate. You agree to pay for all costs arising out of or in connection with any such action and that WRP may charge any corresponding charges to any debit or credit card account that you have provided to WRP. In addition, you will be responsible for an additional fee equivalent to 150% of the effective daily rate of your stay for each day (or part thereof) that you overstay, as well as any other damages, fees, costs, or expenses (including reasonable attorneys’ fees and disbursements) incurred by WRP or any of its Third Party Suppliers, including without limitation, as a result of loss of any subsequent booking or part thereof for the Accommodation or in connection with finding alternative accommodations for any subsequent Guest who had a booking for the Accommodation for all or any part of the time that you overstayed.
12.Accommodation Condition. All Accommodations are provided in “as is” condition. WRP shall make commercially reasonable efforts to ensure the operation of amenities advertised in an Accommodation at the time of booking. You understand, acknowledge, and agree that WRP is not responsible for the failure of, or non-functioning of, any amenity, but will make commercially reasonable efforts to correct the failure or non-functioning of any such amenity following receipt of notice thereof. You agree that should you discover any amenity in an Accommodation to have failed or to be non-functioning, in whole or in part, to notify WRP immediately of same. You further agree that WRP shall in no way be liable to you should you fail to provide such notification to WRP, and that non-functioning amenities may be potentially dangerous or involve potential risks if improperly used. Any attempt by you to use a non-functioning amenity shall be at your own risk. WRP may, in its sole and exclusive discretion, elect to issue partial credits or refunds where the failure or non-functioning of one or more advertised amenities arises, and where such failure or non-functioning was not caused by, contributed to by, or not otherwise attributable to, you. In such case, please note that the amount of any such credits or refunds will never, in aggregate, exceed the amount paid by you for your associated Reservation. Please also note that all references to amenities in this section are exclusively for amenities within WRP’s control. Repair and maintenance of shared amenities may be out of WRP’s control, and you understand, acknowledge, and agree that WRP makes no warranty as to the condition, functioning, or operation of any such amenities. If you do not know whether a specific amenity referenced or pictured in a listing is a shared amenity, please contact WRP to ask before booking.
13.Safety and Guest Conduct. You have primary responsibility for your own safety and for the safety of anyone that you allow in, on, or around the Accommodation during your stay. You agree that you must read and that you will read any fire, health, and safety rules and regulations that are provided or otherwise made available to you and that you will listen to any instructions or explanations that are provided. It is your responsibility to bring any concerns regarding the Accommodation to the attention of WRP and to ask any questions that you may have if you do not understand any of the guidance or instructions provided. You understand, acknowledge, and agree that any breach by you of this “Safety and Conduct” section, including its subsections, may result in the immediate termination of your Reservation. You agree that in such case, such termination will be deemed a cancellation by you as described elsewhere in this Agreement.
a.Health and Safety Risks. If you become aware of anything during your stay that you believe is a health or safety risk, you agree that you will inform WRP immediately. You further agree that WRP and its Third Party suppliers will have access to the Accommodation at all times during your stay to address any such issues.
b.Rule Compliance. You agree to comply with all of WRP’s rules, all local laws and regulations, any building regulations, and any reasonable directions of WRP and its Third Party Suppliers. WRP’s rules will be supplied to you on or before your check-in.
c.Unauthorized Guests. You may not allow any person other than the person(s) named in the Booking to occupy the Accommodation at any time, except the total number of additional guests as may be specified in the Booking, without substitution. For the avoidance of doubt, this means that, for example, if you book an Accommodation for three people, no more than three different people may enter the Accommodation during your Reservation, and you may not have one person stay for part of your Accommodation Period followed by a different person substituting for that first person later in the Accommodation Period, unless both of those people are identified as different additional guests in your Booking prior to confirmation. This Agreement is personal to you and may not be transferred or assigned to any other person(s). You agree that you will not allow any person other than the person(s) named in the Booking to access or occupy the Accommodation, unless requested in writing and approved in writing by WRP.
i.Overoccupancy Termination. In the event that you have permitted any unauthorized person to enter or otherwise occupy any Accommodation, the premises, or the property, or have exceeded any guest limit as referenced-below, WRP reserves the right to immediately terminate your Reservation, with such termination to be deemed a cancellation by you.
d.Guest Limits. Your Booking specifies the maximum permitted number of guests who are authorized to stay in the Accommodation during your Accommodation Period. If you allow more than the maximum number of people, regardless of age (infants included), to occupy or stay in the Accommodation, including via additional guest substitutions, you will be liable to pay a supplement of up to 100% of your effective daily rate for each unauthorized guest. For the avoidance of doubt, the maximum number of guests applies to all potential entrants, including, inter alia, overnight guests, day visitors, children, and infants.
e.Basic Guest Expectations. In addition to complying with the terms of this Agreement, WRP’s rules, and any rules of WRP’s respective Third Party Suppliers, you also agree that you will:
i.Behave in a civilized manner and be good neighbors, respecting the rights of all surrounding property owners;
ii.Not create any noise or disturbance likely to disturb or annoy any surrounding property owner;
iii.Not cause, create, initiate, enable, perpetuate, or permit in any way a party of any sort not explicitly authorized in advance, in writing, by WRP;
iv.Keep the Accommodation clean, tidy, and orderly, and leave the Accommodation in the same or better condition as you found it;
v.Not keep or take any pets or animals into the Accommodation (unless otherwise agreed with WRP for an Accommodation specified as pet-friendly in the Confirmation of Booking. Please note that consistent with WRP’s nondiscrimination policy, we welcome Guests with Service Animals to book consistent with ADA guidelines. We encourage transparent communication in advance, so we can be sure to provide the best Accommodation to suit your needs. Please note that if you bring an animal on the premises or into an Accommodation, you may be asked to remove the animal, even if it is a service animal, if:
1.The animal is out of control and the animal’s handler does not take effective action to control it; or
2.The animal is not housebroken.
In either scenario, provided you have not otherwise violated these Terms, you may be given an opportunity to use the Accommodation without the animal if you so choose. Given their role in providing service, a Service Animal should never be left alone in an Accommodation. You understand, acknowledge, and agree that the presence of a Service Animal does not absolve you of any other obligation under this Agreement including obligations regarding noise, disturbances, and damage or losses. If you have a Service Animal, that Service Animal may be prohibited from entering a shared space where such entry would create a health or safety hazard to others on the premises (e.g. allergic reactions) or where the Service Animal’s presence is prohibited by law. With respect to treehouse Accommodations, please note that, by law, non-native animals are not allowed in the Great Smoky Mountains National Park;
vi.Not do anything that will or might constitute a breach of any consents in relation to the Accommodation or that will or might be in breach (in whole or in part) of any insurance in effect with respect of the Accommodation from time to time;
vii.If the Accommodation is part of a building or complex with common areas, not obstruct or leave any objects or waste in any common areas;
viii.Not leave any object, waste, or obstruction outside of the Accommodation;
ix.Not do or permit to be done in, on or around the Accommodation anything which is or which may be or become a nuisance (whether actionable or not), damage, annoyance, inconvenience, or disturbance to WRP, or to tenants or occupiers of the building or any owner or occupier of any neighboring property, including, inter alia, playing loud music or musical instruments, smoking, dancing, entertaining at the Accommodation, or moving furniture;
x.Not conduct any illegal activity in, on, around, or from the Accommodation;
xi.Not conduct any business or commercial activity whatsoever in, on, around, or from the Accommodation. This includes film, video, digital, and photo shoots;
xii.Not make any change, modification, alteration, or addition whatsoever to the Accommodation or its contents;
xiii.Not use the Accommodation for any purpose other than for personal accommodation;
xiv.Not invade the privacy of any of WRP’s neighbors, if any, or publish or reveal anything that might allow a third party to identify the address of the Accommodation or the identity any of the neighbors of the Accommodation, if any, or any personal information regarding such neighbors, if any, or the Accommodation (even if such information is already in the public domain);
xv.Acknowledge and obey WRP’s rules and be mindful of potential risks including, without limitation, balconies, swimming pools, hot tubs, golf courses, trampolines, fitness equipment, and other recreational equipment;
xvi.Not to access any cupboard, drawers, or storage areas that are locked or otherwise barred from access. You may be subject to a charge for any attempt to open any such locked, secured, or restricted area;
xvii.Respect and follow all check-out procedures in connection with your Booking.
You agree that if you violate any of the above-refenced “Basic Guest Expectations,” WRP may immediately terminate your Reservation, that you will immediately vacate the Accommodation upon such termination, and that such termination shall be deemed a cancellation by you, as described elsewhere under this Agreement.
f.Indemnification. You hereby agree to defend, indemnify, and hold harmless, to the fullest extent permissible by applicable law, WRP and its Third Party Suppliers, their respective parents, subsidiaries, and affiliates, and their respective directors, officers, employees, contractors, heirs, administrators, representatives, successors and assigns (collectively, the “Indemnified Parties”) in respect of any and all costs, claims, damages, liabilities, and expenses whatsoever (including, without limitation, attorneys’ fees and disbursements) suffered or incurred by any of the Indemnified Parties, arising out of or relating to a breach or alleged breach by you of this Agreement, including, without limitation, this section and its subsections. You further agree to defend, indemnify, and hold harmless, to the fullest extent permissible under the law, WRP, its parents, subsidiaries, and affiliates, and their respective directors, officers, employees, contractors, heirs, administrators, representatives, successors and assigns from and against any and all liability, claims, loss, property damage or expenses (including, without limitation, attorneys’ fees and disbursements) arising by reason of any injury, damage, fine, penalty, loss of personal belonging, theft of property, death, or damages sustained by any person, or to the property of any person, including you, which is made, incurred, or sustained by you arising out of or in connection with your Booking or stay, and including where such injury death or damage is caused by your negligent, reckless, or intentional act or omission.
g.Risk of Loss. You agree that you shall bear the sole and exclusive risk to any personal property, furnishings, personal affects and other items brought into the Accommodation or surrounding property by you. Such risk shall include, inter alia, theft, damage, destruction, or other loss, and you agree that WRP shall be in no way responsible therefor.
h.Property Damage. A written or video inventory may have been taken prior to the commencement of your stay. You must notify WRP of any damage to the Accommodation, contents, fixtures, or fittings that occurs during your stay or that you discover upon arrival, even if you regard the damage as minimal or normal wear and tear or if you do not believe the damage is your fault. If you do not notify WRP of any such damage, you will be fully responsible for such damage on a full replacement cost basis. You have authorized WRP to charge any property damage for which you are responsible to the credit or debit card account supplied by you. Any charges for property damage will be charged to such credit or debit card account. You acknowledge that pursuant to the provisions of this Agreement relating to Credit Card Authorization above, WRP has obtained a pre-authorization for such charges as noted above.
i.Liability and Claims. Any claims made by you under this Agreement must be made initially through WRP. In accordance with WRP’s rules and the Guest Services Agreement, WRP has the authority to negotiate and settle claims. You agree that WRP will not have any liability for any business, financial, or economic loss or for any consequential, incidental, special or indirect losses such as lost reputation, lost bargain, lost profit, loss of anticipated savings, or lost opportunity arising as out of or in connection this Agreement, the Accommodation, or the Booking (whether such loss arises as a result of negligence, breach of contract, tort, or otherwise by WRP or any agent or Third Party providing services on behalf of WRP). This Agreement, WRP’s rules, and your agreement with any Third Party Supplier set forth your relationship with each of the foregoing and the limitations of liability relating thereto. Subject to any exceptions set forth in applicable law, WRP’s liability for all losses (including, without limitation for property damage, personal injury and death and whether such claim arises out of breach of contract, tort, negligence or otherwise) will be limited to the cost of obtaining a replacement accommodation for the agreed Accommodation Period or the amount of the Accommodation Fees and charges payable by you, whichever is the higher amount. The Accommodation is a private residence and WRP is not responsible for any accidents, injuries, illness and deaths that occur on, in, around or from the Accommodation or for any loss of your personal belongings or valuables. You are responsible for obtaining any vacation, travel or rental insurance which you believe is appropriate with respect to your stay at the Accommodation.
14.Right of Entry. You acknowledge, understand, and agree that WRP, whether directly or through an agent, may enter any property or Accommodation during your Accommodation Period at any reasonable time with reasonable advance notice, for the any reasonable purpose, including, inter alia, to conduct an inspection, for conducting, assisting with, or enabling maintenance, or to show an Accommodation to prospective or actual licensees, renters, or purchasers. You agree that if WRP has a reasonable belief that any imminent danger or harm may exist to any person, fixture, appliance, appurtenance, property, Accommodation, or any part thereof, that WRP may enter the property or Accommodation without advance notice. Notwithstanding the foregoing, in the event that your reservation is terminated, by you or by WRP, and you remain at an Accommodation, premises, or surrounding property thereafter, you agree that WRP, either directly, indirectly, or through law enforcement, may use any lawful means to remove you and your belonging from such Accommodation, premises, or surrounding property.

You agree that if you violate any of the provisions of this Section or its subsections, your Booking will be subject to immediate termination by WRP, that any such termination will be deemed a cancellation by you as described elsewhere in this Agreement, that you and your belongings will be subject to immediate removal from the Accommodation, premises, and connected property.
16.Enforcement, Reasonable Attorneys’ Fees. If you fail to comply with the conditions and obligations of this Agreement, you agree to immediately surrender and vacate any Accommodation and property on which the Accommodation lies, to remove all of your personal property and belongings, and to leave the Accommodation in good order, free of damage. If WRP needs to or elects to engage legal counsel to enforce any of the conditions of this Agreement or WRP’s rules, to collect any amounts due, or to remove you or your belongings from the Accommodation, you shall be responsible for all attorneys’ fees and disbursements incurred in connection with the foregoing. If any legal action becomes necessary between you and WRP, the prevailing party shall be entitled to recover reasonable attorney’s fees and disbursements from the other party.
17.Limitation of Liability. You understand, acknowledge, and agree that WRP is a service provider and is not a real estate broker, agent, escrow company, insurer, remarketer, property manager, or concierge. WRP provides Services to Guests, either directly or via Third Party Suppliers, though WRP has no direct control over the conduct of parties that are not WRP employees. Accordingly, you agree that WRP is not responsible for any liability related to any Services or Accommodations arising out of or in connection with the conduct of any Guest or any third-party. By using the Services, you agree that any legal remedy or liability that you seek to obtain for acts or omissions of Users or third parties will be limited to claims against such particular Users or third parties, and you agree not to attempt to impose liability on, or seek any legal remedy from, WRP with respect to acts or omissions of any such User or third-party. You understand, acknowledge, and agree that, to the maximum extent permitted by law, any and all risk arising out of or in connection with your access to, and use of, the Services, a Listing, or the use or Booking of any Accommodation, remains solely with you. Neither WRP nor any other party involved in creating, producing, or delivering the Site, Services, or any content connected thereto, will be liable for any incidental, consequential, special, or exemplary damages, including lost profits, loss of data, loss of goodwill, service interruption, computer damage, system failure, or the cost of substitute products or services, or for any damages for personal or bodily injury or emotional distress arising out of or in connection with any Accommodation, Booking, Listing, or Services, whether based on a theory of warranty, contract, tort (including negligence), product liability, or any other legal theory, and whether or not WRP has been informed of the possibility of such damage. In no event will WRP’s aggregate liability arising out of or in connection with these Terms and your use of the Services exceed any amounts you have paid for bookings in connection with the Services in the twelve (12) month period prior to the event giving rise to any alleged liability, or one hundred dollars ($100) if no such payments have been made. This paragraph 5 is a material term of this Agreement, and the limitations of damages set forth above are fundamental elements of the basis of the bargain between WRP and you.
18.User Content. WRP makes no effort to review any User Content for any purpose, including, inter alia, for accuracy, legality, or non-infringement. WRP is not responsible for any User Content, and you agree that regarding any User Content you provide to WRP that you are solely and exclusively responsible for any liability arising therefrom and that that content may be used lawfully and without restriction by you and WRP. We may, in our sole discretion, permit you to post, upload, publish, submit, or transmit User Content.

WRP does not claim any ownership rights in any such User Content, and nothing in these Terms will be deemed to restrict any rights that you may have to use and exploit any such User Content. You represent and warrant that: (i) you either are the sole and exclusive owner of all User Content that you make available through the Services or you have all rights, licenses, consents and releases that are necessary to grant to WRP the rights in such User Content, as contemplated under these Terms; and (ii) neither the User Content nor your posting, uploading, publication, submission or transmittal of the User Content or WRP’s use of the User Content (or any portion thereof) on, through or by means of the Services will infringe, misappropriate or violate a third party’s patent, copyright, trademark, trade secret, moral rights or other proprietary or intellectual property rights, or rights of publicity or privacy, or result in the violation of any applicable law or regulation. Notwithstanding the foregoing, should you furnish WRP with photos to be used in connection with any Listing or for any other purpose, you agree that WRP is permitted to edit such photos, and the edited result shall constitute a derivative work that you agree is the sole and exclusive property of WRP and for which you agree that you forfeit any copyright claims against WRP, whether past, present, or future, threatened, or actual.

WRP reserves the right to suspend or terminate any account you created with WRP in our sole discretion. You are responsible for safeguarding of your personal information, including any password you may create in connection with the Services, and you agree that you will not disclose your password to any third party and that you will take sole responsibility for any activities or actions under any account you create in connection with the Services, whether or not you have authorized such activities or actions.

WRP may, in appropriate circumstances and at its discretion, disable and/or terminate access of any User who repeatedly infringes or is repeatedly charged with, or accused of, infringing the copyrights or other intellectual property rights of others. In accordance with the Digital Millennium Copyright Act of 1998, the text of which may be found on the U.S. Copyright Office website at http://www.copyright.gov/legislation/dmca.pdf, WRP will respond expeditiously to claims of copyright infringement committed using the Services, that are reported to WRP’s Designated Copyright Agent, identified in the sample notice below.

c.Assignment. WRP will be entitled to assign or sub-contract its obligations under this Agreement. You may not assign or transfer these Terms, by operation of law or otherwise, without WRP’s prior written consent.

e.Severability. The parties agree that the terms of this Agreement are fair and reasonable in all the circumstances. If, however, any provision of these terms is held not to be valid by a court of competent jurisdiction but would be valid if part of the wording were deleted, then such provision shall apply with such deletions as may be necessary to make it valid. If any of the provisions in these terms are held not to be valid by a court of competent jurisdiction, the remaining provisions of these terms shall remain in full force and effect.
i.Mediation. You understand, acknowledge, and agree that any controversies, disputes, or matters in question arising out of or in connection with this Agreement, any breach thereof, or construction or interpretation thereof, shall be decided by mediation or arbitration in accordance with this section. The party who seeks resolution of a controversy, claim, dispute or other matter in question shall notify the other party in writing of the existence and subject matter thereof, and shall designate in such notices the names of three prospective professional mediators, each of whom shall be a member of the Tennessee Academy of Mediators & Arbitrators and based in Knoxville, Tennessee. The recipient party shall select from such list one individual to act as a mediator in the dispute set forth by the notifying party. The parties agree to meet with said mediator in the City of Knoxville, Tennessee within two weeks after the recipient party has received notice of the dispute and agree to utilize their best efforts and all expediency to resolve the matters in dispute. The mediation shall not continue longer than one (1) hearing day without the written approval of both parties. Neither party shall be bound by any recommendation of the mediator; however, any agreement reached during mediation shall be final and conclusive.
ii.Arbitration Agreement. If any dispute is not resolved by such mediation, as contemplated above, within ninety (90) days from the date of notice as described above, such dispute shall be decided exclusively by mandatory arbitration in accordance with the Commercial Arbitration Rules of the American Arbitration Association. You and WRP mutually agree that any dispute, claim or controversy arising out of or relating to these Terms or the applicability, breach, termination, validity, enforcement or interpretation thereof, or to the use of the Site or Services (collectively, “Disputes”) will be settled by binding individual arbitration. If there is a dispute about whether this Arbitration Agreement can be enforced or applies to our Dispute, you and WRP agree that the arbitrator will decide that issue. Either party may apply to the American Arbitration Association for a determination of the dispute set forth in the notification thereof by the originating party. The parties agree that the arbitration shall take place in the City of Knoxville, Tennessee, and shall be exclusively governed by the laws of the State of Tennessee. Any award entered or decision made by the arbitrator(s) shall be final and judgment may be entered upon it in accordance with applicable law in any court having jurisdiction thereof. Each party shall bear its own expenses for mediation and/or arbitration. Notwithstanding the foregoing, you and WRP each agree that the following claims are exceptions to the Arbitration Agreement and will be brought in a judicial proceeding in a court of competent jurisdiction:
1.Any claim related to actual or threatened infringement, misappropriation or violation of a party’s copyrights, trademarks, trade secrets, patents, or other intellectual property rights; and
2.Any claim seeking emergency injunctive relief based on exigent circumstances (e.g., imminent danger or commission of a crime, hacking, cyber-attack).
g.Governing Law, Jurisdiction. This Agreement and the legal relations among the parties shall be exclusively governed by, and construed and enforced in accordance with, the laws of the State of Tennessee, without regard to its conflict of laws rules. The parties hereby irrevocably and unconditionally:
i.Agree that any action or proceeding, for which Arbitration is impermissible under applicable law, arising out of or in connection with this Agreement shall be brought only in the state or federal courts situated in Knoxville, Tennessee (the “Tennessee Courts”), and not in any other state or federal court in the United States of America or in any court in any other country;
ii.Consent to submit to the exclusive jurisdiction of the Tennessee Courts for purposes of any action or proceeding arising out of or in connection with this Agreement;
iii.Waive any objection to the laying of venue of any such action or proceeding in the Tennessee Courts; and;
iv.Waive, and agree not to plead or to make, any claim that any such action or proceeding brought in the Tennessee Courts has been brought in an improper or inconvenient forum.
h.Class Action Waiver. You and WRP acknowledge and agree that, to the fullest extent permitted by law, the parties are each waiving the right to participate as a plaintiff or class member in any purported class action lawsuit, class-wide arbitration, private attorney-general action, or any other representative proceeding as to all Disputes. Further, unless you and WRP both otherwise agree in writing, an arbitrator may not consolidate more than one party’s claims and may not otherwise preside over any form of any class or representative proceeding. If the class action waiver or class-wide arbitration contemplated hereunder is held unenforceable with respect to any Dispute, then the entirety of the arbitration provision above will be deemed void with respect to such Dispute, and the Dispute must proceed in court. If the representative proceeding waiver in this section s held unenforceable with respect to any Dispute, that waivers may be severed from this Agreement, and you and WRP agree that any private attorney general claims and representative claims in the Dispute will be severed and stayed, pending the resolution of any arbitrable claims in the Dispute in individual arbitration. Furthermore, each party hereto irrevocably waives any right to assert and claims against the other party as a representative or member in any class action, representative action, or mass action, except where such waiver is prohibited by law or deemed by a court of competent jurisdiction to be against public policy. To the extent to which either party is permitted by law or a court of competent jurisdiction to proceed with a class, representative, or mass action against the other, the parties hereto agree that:
i.The prevailing party shall not be entitled to recover attorneys’ fees or costs associated with pursuing the class, representative, or mass action (notwithstanding any other provision in this agreement); and
ii.The party who initiates or participates as a member of the class will not submit a claim or otherwise participate in any recovery secured through the class, representative, or mass action.
i.Waiver of Right to Trial by Jury. Each party hereto irrevocably waives, to the fullest extent permissible under applicable law, and right it may have to a trial by jury in any legal proceeding, directly or indirectly, arising out of or in connection with this Agreement.
j.No Waiver. If you breach the terms and conditions of this Agreement and WRP takes no action or fails to take action on a timely basis, the foregoing shall not be deemed a waiver by WRP of its rights under this Agreement and WRP will be entitled to take action and enforce its rights and remedies for such breach.
k.Third Party Beneficiaries. WRP’s Third Party Suppliers are third party beneficiaries of this Agreement and may rely upon this Agreement and enforce this Agreement to the extent necessary to enforce their respective rights and perform their respective obligations under WRP’s rules and any agreements between you and such parties.
l.Conflicts. Certain areas of the Site or Services may have different terms and conditions posted or may require you to agree with and accept additional terms and conditions. In the event of such a conflict between any such terms and these Terms, the former terms and conditions will take precedence with respect to your use of or access to those specific areas or Services.
m.Modification. WRP reserves the right, in its sole discretion, to change, add to, amend, or otherwise modify the Services or these Terms at any time and without prior notice. Should WRP modify these Terms, we will post the modification on the Site or provide you with notice of the modification. Any such change will take effect upon posting on this page.
