Failure or delay by Blue Prism to enforce or partially enforce any provision of these Terms will not be construed as a waiver of any of its rights under the Terms and any waiver by Blue Prism of any breach of, or any default under, any provision of the Terms by you will not be deemed a waiver of any subsequent breach or default and will in no way affect the Terms.
