of these Terms will survive any termination of the Terms.
Governing Law and Venue.
These Terms and any action related thereto will be governed and interpreted by and under the laws of the State of Colorado, without giving effect to any conflicts of laws principles that require the application of the law of a different jurisdiction.
Customer hereby expressly consents to the personal jurisdiction and venue in the state and federal courts for the county in which Company’s principal place of business is located for any lawsuit filed there against Customer by Company arising from or related to these Terms. The United Nations Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods does not apply to these Terms. The laws of the jurisdiction where Customer is located may be different from California law. Customer shall always comply with all international and domestic laws, ordinances, regulations, and statutes that are applicable to its purchase and use of the Service hereunder.
Customer agrees not to export, reexport, or transfer, directly or indirectly, any U.S. technical data acquired from Company, or any products utilizing such data, in violation of the United States export laws or regulations.
Company and its suppliers make no representation that the Service is appropriate or available for use in locations other than the United States. If you use the Service from outside the United States, you are solely responsible for compliance with all applicable laws, including without limitation export and import regulations of other countries. Any diversion of the Content contrary to United States law is prohibited.
If any provision of these Terms is, for any reason, held to be invalid or unenforceable, the other provisions of these Terms will remain enforceable and the invalid or unenforceable provision will be deemed modified so that it is valid and enforceable to the maximum extent permitted by law. Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, Customer agrees that the section titled
Limitation of Liability
will remain in effect notwithstanding the unenforceability of any provision in the section titled
Limited Warranty and Disclaimer
Any waiver or failure to enforce any provision of these Terms on one occasion will not be deemed a waiver of any other provision or of such provision on any other occasion.
The parties acknowledge that any actual or threatened breach of the section titled
License Grant and Restrictions
will constitute immediate, irreparable harm to the non-breaching party for which monetary damages would be an inadequate remedy, and that injunctive relief is an appropriate remedy for such breach. If any legal action is brought to enforce these Terms, the prevailing party will be entitled to receive its attorneys’ fees, court costs, and other collection expenses, in addition to any other relief it may receive.
Neither party shall assign, subcontract, delegate, or otherwise transfer these Terms, or its rights and obligations herein, without obtaining the prior written consent of the other party, and any attempted assignment, subcontract, delegation, or transfer in violation of the foregoing will be null and void; provided, however, that either party may assign these Terms in connection with a merger, acquisition, reorganization or sale of all or substantially all of its assets, or other operation of law, without any consent of the other party. These Terms shall be binding upon the parties and their respective successors and permitted assigns.
Any delay in the performance of any duties or obligations of either party (except the payment of money owed) will not be considered a breach of these Terms if such delay is caused by a labor dispute, shortage of materials, fire, earthquake, flood, or any other event beyond the control of such party, provided that such party uses reasonable efforts, under the circumstances, to notify the other party of the cause of such delay and to resume performance as soon as possible.
Customer’s relationship to Company is that of an independent contractor, and neither party is an agent or partner of the other. Customer will not have, and will not represent to any third party that it has, any authority to act on behalf of Company.
You are responsible for updating your data to provide Company with your most current email address. In the event that the last email address you have provided to Company is not valid, or for any reason is not capable of delivering to you any notices required by these Terms, Company’s dispatch of the email containing such notice will nonetheless constitute effective notice of the changes described on the notice. Any notice provided to Company pursuant to these Terms should be sent to
1211 Avery Street Suite 201, Golden, CO 80403.
These Terms are the final, complete and exclusive agreement of the parties with respect to the subject matters hereof and supersede and merge all prior discussions between the parties with respect to such subject matters. No modification of or amendment to these Terms, or any waiver of any rights under these Terms, will be effective unless in writing and signed by an authorized signatory of Customer and an officer of Company.
