9. GENERAL PROVISIONS
ENTIRE AGREEMENT. This Agreement (together with any applicable Service Plan(s), Formstack Services Agreement, Addendums and any agreement incorporated herein by express reference) constitutes the entire agreement, and supersedes all prior negotiations, understandings or agreements (oral or written), between the Parties about the subject matter of this Agreement. This Agreement is incorporated by reference into all Formstack Services Agreements entered into between Company and you and shall apply unless stated to the contrary in the Services Agreement. In the event of a conflict between this Agreement and the terms of any Formstack Services Agreement applicable to the Formstack for Salesforce Services, the terms of the Formstack Services Agreement shall prevail. Notwithstanding the foregoing, the order of precedence applies only to the extent a conflict exists (and only for the purpose of resolving such conflict as it applies to the terms and conditions comprising a particular undertaking as defined by a Formstack Services Agreement). Any conflicting terms shall not be deemed to be amended, modified, cancelled or waived with respect to any other Formstack Services Agreement or for any other purpose whatsoever. No waiver, consent or, except as expressly provided herein, modification of this Agreement shall bind either Party unless in writing and signed by the Party against which enforcement is sought. The failure of either Party to enforce its rights under this Agreement at any time for any period will not be construed as a waiver of such rights. If any provision of this Agreement is determined to be illegal or unenforceable, that provision will be limited or eliminated to the minimum extent necessary so that this Agreement will otherwise remain in full force and effect and enforceable. If this Agreement is required to be registered with any governmental authority, you shall cause such registration to be made and shall bear any expense or tax payable in respect thereof. If you discover anyone on the Formstack system violating this Agreement or notice anything suspicious from the Formstack network, you agree to report the violation or suspicious activity by opening a ticket with Formstack for investigation.
GOVERNING LAW / BINDING ARBITRATION. This Agreement shall be treated as though executed and performed in the state of Indiana and shall be governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of Indiana, USA, without regard to its conflicts of law provisions. Neither the United Nations Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods nor any enactment of the Uniform Computer Information Transactions Act shall apply to this Agreement. Any dispute relating in any way to your use of the Services shall be submitted to confidential arbitration in Indiana, except that to the extent you have in any manner violated or threatened to violate our intellectual property rights, we may seek injunctive or other appropriate relief in any state or federal court in the state of Indiana. You hereby consent to, and waive all defenses of lack of, personal jurisdiction and forum non conveniens with respect to venue and jurisdiction in the state and federal courts of Indiana. Arbitration under this Agreement shall be conducted pursuant to the Commercial Arbitration Rules then prevailing at the American Arbitration Association. The arbitrator's award shall be final and binding and may be entered as a judgment in any court of competent jurisdiction. To the fullest extent permitted by applicable law, no arbitration under this Agreement shall be joined to an arbitration involving any other party subject to this Agreement, whether through class action proceedings or otherwise. You agree that regardless of any statute or law to the contrary, any claim or cause of action arising out of, related to or connected with the use of the Services or this Agreement must be filed within one (1) year after such claim or cause of action arose or be forever banned. We operate the Service from our offices in the State of Indiana.
In any action or proceeding to enforce or interpret this Agreement, the prevailing Party will be entitled to recover from the other Party its costs and expenses (including reasonable attorneys' fees) incurred in connection with such action or proceeding and enforcing any judgment or order obtained.
REMEDIES. Except as specifically provided otherwise, each right and remedy in this Agreement is in addition to any other right or remedy, at law or in equity. Company may choose to, but is not required to, place your account on suspension in lieu of termination where termination is permitted under the terms of this Agreement or take other appropriate action. Each Party agrees that, in the event of any breach or threatened breach of Section 2, the non-breaching Party will suffer irreparable damage for which it will have no adequate remedy at law. Accordingly, the non-breaching Party shall be entitled to injunctive and other equitable remedies to prevent or restrain such breach or threatened breach, without the necessity of posting any bond.
NOTICES. Any notice or communication hereunder shall be in writing and either personally delivered or sent via confirmed email, recognized express delivery courier or certified or registered mail, prepaid and return receipt requested, addressed to the other Party at its address specified in the Service Plan, or at such other address designated in a subsequent notice. All notices shall be in English, effective upon receipt.
ASSIGNMENT. This Agreement and the rights and obligations hereunder may not be assigned, in whole or in part, by either Party without the other Party's written consent (which shall not be unreasonably withheld). However, without consent, either Party may assign this Agreement to any successor to all or substantially all of its business which concerns this Agreement (whether by sale of assets or equity, merger, consolidation or otherwise). This Agreement shall be binding upon, and inure to the benefit of, the successors, representatives and permitted assigns of the Parties hereto.
FORCE MAJEURE.
