No failure of either party to exercise any power given to it hereunder to insist upon strict compliance by the other party with its obligations hereunder, and no custom or practice of the parties at variance with the terms hereof, nor any payment under this agreement shall constitute a waiver of either party’s right to demand exact compliance with the terms hereof.
