Neither the course of conduct between the parties nor trade practice will act to modify the Terms. The failure of Swing by Swing to enforce any right or provision of these Terms will not be deemed a waiver of such right or provision. Any notices or other communications provided by us under these Terms, including those regarding modifications to these Terms, will be given: (i) via email; or (ii) by posting to the Service.
