2.                                        Other than as specifically set forth herein, Flex Space Provider shall not have any obligation to make any additions, alterations, improvements, demolition, repairs or other work therein pertaining to the Flex Space; provided, however, that Flex Space Provider shall at its sole cost and expense install standard entry signage identifying Flex Space User’s name at the front door of the Flex Space and at the lobby directory.

IV.                                      FLEX SPACE USER’S RIGHTS AND RESPONSIBILITIES

5.                                        Flex Space User hereby represents and warrants that: (i) Flex Space User is not, nor is it owned or controlled directly or indirectly by, any person, group, entity or nation named on the Specially Designated Nationals and Blocked Persons List maintained by the Office of Foreign Assets Control of the United States Treasury (“OFAC”) (any such person, group, entity or nation being hereinafter referred to as a “Prohibited Person”); (ii) Flex Space User is not (nor is it owned, controlled, directly or indirectly, by any person, group, entity or nation which is) acting directly or indirectly for or on behalf of any Prohibited Person; and (iii) Flex Space User (and any person, group, or entity which Flex Space User controls, directly or indirectly) has not knowingly conducted nor will knowingly conduct business nor has knowingly engaged nor will knowingly engage in any transaction or dealing with any Prohibited Person that either may cause or causes Flex Space Provider to be in violation of any OFAC rule or regulation, including without limitation any assignment of this Agreement or the license granted herein or the making or receiving of any contribution of funds, goods or services to or for the benefit of a Prohibited Person in violation of the U.S. Patriot Act or any OFAC rule or regulation. In connection with the foregoing, it is expressly understood and agreed that (x) any breach by Flex Space User of the foregoing representations and warranties shall be deemed an immediate default by Flex Space User under Section IV.13 above (without the benefit of notice or grace) and shall be covered by the indemnity provisions of Section IV.9 above, and (y) the representations and warranties contained in this subsection shall be continuing in nature and shall survive the expiration or earlier termination of this Agreement.

 

6.                                        This Agreement is subject and subordinate to any mortgage or ground lease now or hereafter on the Building, and to all renewals, modifications, consolidations, replacements and extensions thereof.  In the event that any mortgagee or its respective successor in title shall succeed to the interest of Flex Space User and this Agreement shall continue in full force and effect, Flex Space User hereby agrees to attorn to such mortgagee or successor.

11.                                 If any one or more provisions of this Agreement shall be found to be illegal or unenforceable in any respect, the validity, legality and enforceability of the remaining provisions shall not in any way be affected or impaired thereby, provided the surviving agreement materially comports with the parties’ original intent.  The Parties shall make a good faith effort to replace any such provision with a valid and enforceable one such that the objectives contemplated by the parties when entering this Agreement may be realized.

 

12.                                 The parties acknowledge and agree that this Agreement may be executed by electronic signature, which shall be considered as an original signature for all purposes and shall have the same force and effect as an original signature. Without limitation, “electronic signature” shall include faxed versions of an original signature or electronically scanned and transmitted versions (e.g., via pdf) of an original signature.
