Each Party irrevocably submits to the exclusive jurisdiction and venue of any such court in any such action or proceeding.
(b) Assignment. Neither Party may assign, delegate, or otherwise transfer (by operation of law or otherwise) this Agreement or any of its rights or obligations to a third party without the other Party’s written consent, except that Populus may assign or transfer this Agreement without such consent as a consequence of a merger, acquisition, consolidation, reorganization, or sale of substantially all of its assets or of the business to which this Agreement pertains. Any assignment or transfer in violation of the foregoing will be null and void. Subject to all of the terms and conditions hereof, this Agreement inures to the benefit of and is binding upon the Parties hereto and their successors and assigns
(c) Miscellaneous. Except as otherwise expressly specified in this Agreement, the rights and remedies provided to each Party in this Agreement are cumulative and in addition to any other rights and remedies available to such Party at law or in equity. Customer acknowledges and agrees that any actual or threatened breach by it of any confidentiality obligations or license restrictions will constitute irreparable harm for which monetary damages would be an inadequate remedy, and that in such event Populus shall be entitled to obtain immediate injunctive relief to protect its rights under this Agreement. Customer agrees not to export, re-export, or transfer, directly or indirectly, any U.S. technical data acquired from Populus, or any products utilizing such data, in violation of the United States export laws or regulations. All waivers must be in writing. Any waiver or failure to enforce any provision of this Agreement on one occasion will not be deemed a waiver of any other provision or of such provision on any other occasion. If any provision of this Agreement is unenforceable, such provision will be changed and interpreted to accomplish the objectives of such provision to the greatest extent possible under applicable law and the remaining provisions will continue in full force and effect. Where Populus requires that Customer provide an e-mail address, Customer is responsible for providing Populus with its most current e-mail address. In the event that the last e-mail address Customer provided to Populus is not valid, or for any reason is not capable of delivering to Customer any notices required/ permitted by this Agreement, Populus’ dispatch of the e-mail containing such notice will nonetheless constitute effective notice. Customer may give notice to Populus at the following address: 655 Montgomery Street, 7th Floor, San Francisco, CA 94111. Such notice shall be deemed given when received by Populus by letter delivered by nationally recognized overnight delivery service or first-class postage prepaid mail at the above address. This Agreement and any exhibits, attachments, and schedules attached hereto constitute the final, complete, and exclusive agreement between the Parties regarding the subject hereof and supersede all prior or contemporaneous agreements, understandings, and communication, whether written or oral. In the event of any conflict or inconsistency between the terms of this Agreement and the terms of any exhibit, attachments, or schedules hereto, the terms of this Agreement will govern unless the exhibit, attachment, or schedule expressly refers to the provision of this Agreement over which it will prevail. This Agreement may be executed in counterparts, each of which will be considered an original, but all of which together will constitute the same instrument.
