14.8 Except as otherwise expressly provided in this Agreement, the rights and remedies provided each of the parties herein shall be cumulative and in addition to any other rights and remedies provided by law or otherwise. Any failure in the exercise by either party of its right to terminate this Agreement or to enforce any provision of this Agreement for any default or violation by the other party shall not prejudice such party’s right of termination or enforcement for such or any other default or violation.

The party delayed shall, as promptly as reasonably possible, notify the other party of the reasons for the delay and its estimated duration.
