No terms or conditions set forth in Client’s Booking, to which notice of objection is hereby given, or in any further correspondence between Client and ACADEMY, shall alter or supplement this Agreement unless both ACADEMY and Client have expressly agreed in writing to modify this Agreement. Neither ACADEMY’s commencement of performance nor completion of Services shall be deemed or construed as acceptance of Client’s additional or different terms and conditions.
