Provisions: Enforceability and Survival

Should any provision of the Terms of Use be held by a court of competent jurisdiction to be illegal, invalid, or unenforceable, that provision shall be deemed amended to achieve as nearly as possible the same economic effect as the original provision, and the legality, validity and enforceability of the remaining provisions of the Terms of Use shall not be affected or impaired thereby.

The failure of either party to enforce any term or condition of the Terms of Use shall not constitute a waiver of either party's right to enforce each and every term and condition of the Terms of Use. No breach under the Terms of Use shall be deemed waived or excused by either party unless such waiver or consent is in writing signed by the party granting such waiver or consent. The waiver by or consent of a party to a breach of any provision of the Terms of Use shall not operate or be construed as a waiver of or consent to any other or subsequent breach by such other party.

The parties agree that the Terms of Use states the entire agreement between the parties with respect to its subject matter and supersedes all prior agreements and representations of the parties, oral or written. The Terms of Use may only be amended in a writing signed by duly authorized representatives of both parties. The Terms of Use shall be binding upon and inure to the benefit of the parties' authorized successors, legal representatives, and authorized assigns.

THE PARTIES WAIVE ANY RIGHT TO A JURY TRIAL IN ANY PROCEEDING ARISING OUT OF OR RELATED TO THE TERMS OF USE OR ANY CONFIDENTIAL INFORMATION, INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY RIGHTS, OR SELF HOSTED SERVICES THAT ARE THE SUBJECT OF THE TERMS OF USE.

Any and all disputes arising under this Agreement shall only be resolved by courts located in the State of New York and the parties hereto consent to venue therein, the exclusive personal jurisdiction thereof, and to the sufficiency of service of process by certified or registered mail in connection with any dispute arising out of or in connection with the Terms of Use.
