13. If the advertiser sells or assigns his business, then this contract will be considered as part of the sale and/or assignment and the amount of monies remaining due on the contract shall be paid out of the proceeds of the sale by the advertiser. The advertiser also agrees that any expenses incurred including reasonable attorney's fees, court costs, and other costs incurred by publisher to enforce the terms of this agreement or in the collection process be added to and become a part of the amount due.
