17. Final Clause

Should any provision of this Agreement be or become invalid or void, in whole or in part, or become invalid or void in whole or in part, as a result of a change in the law or the supreme court’s decision or otherwise, or should this Agreement have any loopholes, the parties agree that the remaining provisions of this Agreement shall remain in full force and effect.
In this case, the contracting parties undertake, taking into account the principle of good faith, to replace the invalid provision with a valid provision which comes as close as possible to the meaning and purpose of the invalid provision and which can be assumed to have been agreed upon by the parties at the time of conclusion of the contract if they had known or foreseen the invalidity or nullity. The same shall apply if this contract should contain a gap.
