Nothing in this agreement shall require the commission of any act contrary to law or to any rules or regulations of any union, guild or like body having jurisdiction over the services and personnel to be supplied by "OWNER" to "RENTER." If there is any disagreement between any provision of the agreement and any law, rule or regulation, such law, rule, or regulation shall prevail and this agreement shall be curtailed, modified, or limited only to the extent necessary to eliminate any such conflict.

This contract shall not, in any way be construed so as to create a partnership, or any kind of joint undertaking or venture between the parties hereto, nor make "OWNER" liable in whole or in part for any obligation that may be incurred by "RENTER" in "RENTER'S" carrying-out any of the rental hereof or otherwise.

"RENTER" hereby indemnifies and holds "OWNER", as well as their respective agents, representatives, principals, employees, officers, directors, harmless from and against any loss, damage or expense, including reasonable attorney's fees incurred or suffered by or threatened against "OWNER" or any of the foregoing in connection with or as a result of any claim for personal injury or property damage or otherwise brought by or on behalf of any third party person, firm or corporation as a result of or in connection with the rental, which claim does not result from the active negligence of the "OWNER".

This contact cannot be assigned or transferred without written consent of "OWNER." This contract contains the sole and complete understanding of the parties hereto and may not be amended, supplemented, varied, discharged, except by an instrument in writing by both involved parties. The validity, construction and effect of this contract shall be governed by the laws of the State of Tennessee, regardless of the place of rental.
