There are a few contract clauses that were not included in this contract. FCCS recommends the following clauses to be added: Add “Integration”: This Contract constitutes the entire agreement of the Parties. There are no promises, terms, conditions, or obligations binding the Parties other than those stated herein. This Contract supersedes all previous placement contracts, communications, representations, or agreements, either written or oral, between the Parties. Add “Interpretation”: Unless the context of this Contract clearly requires otherwise, references to the plural include the singular, references to the singular include the plural, and the term “including” is not limiting. The words “hereof,” “herein,” “hereby,” “hereunder,” and similar terms in this Contract refer to this Contract as a whole and not to any particular provision of this Contract. Any reference in this Contract to any agreement, instrument, or document shall include all amendments, changes, extensions, modifications, renewals, replacements, substitutions, joinders and supplements, thereto and thereof, as applicable. Any reference herein to any person will be construed to include such person’s successors and assigns as otherwise permitted herein. Add “Counterparts”: This Contract may be executed simultaneously in two or more counterparts, each of which shall be deemed an original, and each of these counterparts shall constitute one and the same instrument. It shall not be necessary in making proof of this Contract to produce or account for more than one such counterpart. An electronic signature or a scanned or otherwise reproduced signature shall be a binding signature and carry the same legal force as the original. Add “Severability”: If any term of this Contract or its application thereof to any person or circumstance shall to any extent be held invalid or unenforceable, the remainder of this Contract, or the application of such term or provision to persons or circumstances other than those as to which it is held invalid or unenforceable, shall not be affected thereby. Each term and provision of this Contract shall be valid and enforced to the fullest extent permitted by law.
