2. If at any time any provision of this Agreement is or becomes illegal, invalid or unenforceable in any respect, then all other provisions shall be given effect separately therefrom and shall not in any way be affected or impaired thereby. If any covenants set forth are illegal or unenforceable, it is the intention of the parties that such covenant shall not thereby be terminated but shall be deemed amended as soon as possible to the extent necessary to render it valid and enforceable.
