This Agreement supersedes, and the terms of this Agreement govern, all previous oral and written communications regarding these matters, all of which are merged into this Agreement, except that this Agreement does not supersede the prior nondisclosure or comparable agreement between the parties executed prior to this Agreement being executed, nor does it affect the validity of any agreements between the parties for services relating to ItemSense that Impinj may provide. No employee, agent, or other representative of Impinj has any authority to bind Impinj with respect to any statement, representation, warranty, or other expression unless the same is specifically set forth in this Agreement.

This Agreement may be changed only by a written agreement signed by an authorized agent of the party against whom enforcement is sought. Impinj will not be bound by, and specifically objects to, any term, condition or other provision that is different from or in addition to this Agreement (whether or not it would materially alter this Agreement) that is proffered by Customer in any purchase order, receipt, acceptance, confirmation, correspondence, or otherwise, unless Impinj specifically agrees to such provision in a writing signed by an authorized agent of Impinj.
