7.              EXCLUSIONS FROM WAIVERS AND RELEASE OF CLAIMS

 

Notwithstanding anything else stated in this Agreement, Executive understands and agrees that:

 

a.              Nothing in this Agreement is intended to limit or restrict any rights that Executive may have to enforce this Agreement or to interfere with or affect a waiver of any other right that cannot, by express and unequivocal terms of law, be limited, waived, or extinguished. This Agreement also does not apply to any claims that the controlling law clearly states may not be released by private agreement.
