9. GENERAL PROVISIONS
9.1 Entire Agreement.
This Agreement (together with the applicable Plan(s) and the TOU) 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. In the event of any conflict or inconsistency between the Services Agreement and the Plan, the terms and conditions in the Plan will prevail and be controlling. 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.
9.2 Governing Law.
This Agreement 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. The sole jurisdiction and venue for actions related to this Agreement will be the state or federal courts located in Indiana having jurisdiction over Company's offices, and both parties consent to the jurisdiction of such courts with respect to any such action. 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.
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. Each party agrees that, in the event of any breach or threatened breach of Section 4 or 5, 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.
Any notice or communication hereunder shall be in writing and either personally delivered or sent via confirmed facsimile, 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 Plan, or at such other address designated in a subsequent notice. All notices shall be in English, effective upon receipt.
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.
9.6 Independent Contractors.
The parties shall be independent contractors under this Agreement, and nothing herein will constitute either party as the employer, employee, agent or representative of the other party, or both parties as joint venturers or partners for any purpose.
