Neither party shall have the power to bind or obligate the other in any manner. The Non-Exclusive Downloading Member agrees that he or she shall be responsible for all use, sales, value-added and similar taxes and duties imposed by any governing authority in any jurisdiction in connection with the license granted to him or her under this Agreement.

Whenever the context so requires, the singular number shall include the plural and vice versa, and the masculine, feminine and neutral genders shall include each other.
