(c) No waiver of a right under this Agreement shall be effective unless such waiver is expressly made in writing and executed and delivered by the party against whom such waiver is claimed. The waiver of a right under this Agreement in a specified instance or in specified circumstances shall not operate or be construed as a waiver of such right in other instances or circumstances.
