  7. Court Order. This Agreement shall not prevent disclosure of Confidential Information in response to a valid order of a court or other governmental body provided that the party making the disclosure pursuant to the order shall first have given prompt written notice to Disclosing Party and made a reasonable effort to obtain a protective order requiring that the Confidential Information or the documents so disclosed be used only for the purpose for which the order was issued.
  8. Risk. Receiving Party agrees to assume the risk of any injury or loss to it, including its employees, contractors, and agents, while on the premises of Disclosing Party and agrees to hold harmless and indemnify Disclosing Party for any claims, losses, or damages related thereto.

  13. No Further Agreements. That no furnishing of information and obligation thereunder shall obligate any of the parties to enter into any further agreement or negotiation with the other or to refrain from entering into an agreement or negotiation with any other party.
  14. No Waiver of Enforcement. The failure of either party to enforce any term of this Agreement will not operate as a waiver of the party's right to enforce that or any other term of this Agreement at other times or in other circumstances.
  15. Entire Agreement. This Agreement reflects the entire agreement of PARTNER and PANTHER with respect to the subject matter hereof and supersedes all prior oral and written representations, warranties, covenants, commitments, guarantees, and other agreements about the same subject matter hereof.  No agent, employee or representative of either party has any authority to bind such party to any affirmation, representation or warranty; and, unless such is specifically included within this written agreement, it shall not be enforceable by the other party hereto.
