Agreement without the prior written consent of Odel. Any such pre‐approved subcontracting, transfer,

constitute a waiver of such provision or of the right of Odel to enforce each and every provision of the

Agreement. No course or prior dealings between the parties and no usage of the trade shall be relevant

to determine the meaning of the Agreement. No waiver, consent, modification or amendment of the

terms of the Agreement shall be binding unless made in a writing specifically referring to the Agreement

arbitration in which case Clause 23.11 applies. Supplier hereby waives all defenses of lack of personal

jurisdiction and forum non‐convenience.

23.11. If so chosen by Odel in accordance with Clause 23.10, any dispute, controversy or claim arising
