13.6 Governing Law. This Agreement will be interpreted, construed, and enforced in all respects in accordance with the local laws of the State of California, U.S.A., without reference to its choice of law rules. Each party hereby irrevocably consents to the exclusive jurisdiction and venue of the federal, state, and local courts in San Francisco, California in connection with any action arising out of or in connection with this Agreement. Notwithstanding anything in this Agreement to the contrary, InnoVint may seek injunctive or other equitable relief in any court of competent jurisdiction to protect any actual or threatened misappropriation or infringement of its intellectual property rights or those of its licensors, and Subscriber hereby submits to the exclusive jurisdiction of such courts and waives any objection thereto on the basis of improper venue, inconvenience of the forum or any other grounds. Subscriber agrees that any breach of the license restrictions or other infringement or misappropriation of the intellectual property rights of InnoVint or its licensors will result in immediate and irreparable damage to InnoVint for which there is no adequate remedy at law. The United Nations Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods in its entirety is expressly excluded from this Agreement, including, without limitation, application to the InnoVint Mobile Application, InnoVint Platform, and services provided hereunder. Furthermore, this Agreement (including without limitation, the InnoVint Mobile Application, InnoVint Platform and services provided hereunder) will not be governed or interpreted in any way by referring to any law based on the Uniform Computer Information Transactions Act (UCITA) or any other act derived from or related to UCITA. The prevailing party in any action to enforce this agreement will be entitled to recover its attorney’s fees and costs in connection with such action.
13.7 Waiver. The waiver by either party of any breach of any provision of this Agreement does not waive any other breach. The failure of any party to insist on strict performance of any covenant or obligation in accordance with this Agreement will not be a waiver of such party’s right to demand strict compliance in the future, nor will the same be construed as a novation of this Agreement.
13.8 Severability. If any part of this Agreement is found to be illegal, unenforceable, or invalid, the remaining portions of this Agreement will remain in full force and effect. If any material limitation or restriction on the use of the InnoVint Services under this Agreement is found to be illegal, unenforceable, or invalid, Subscriber’s right to use the InnoVint Services will immediately terminate.
13.9 Entire Agreement. This Agreement (which includes all Order Forms entered into hereunder) is the final and complete expression of the agreement between these parties regarding Subscriber’s use of the InnoVint Services. This Agreement supersedes, and the terms of this Agreement govern, all previous oral and written communications regarding these matters, all of which are merged into this Agreement, except to the extent InnoVint makes any software or other products and services available to Subscriber under separate written terms. Except as otherwise specified herein, this Agreement may be changed only by a written agreement signed by an authorized agent of the party against whom enforcement is sought. InnoVint will not be bound by, and specifically objects to, any term, condition, or other provision that is different from or in addition to this Agreement (whether or not it would materially alter this Agreement) that is proffered by Subscriber in any receipt, acceptance, confirmation, correspondence, or any pre-printed or standard terms of any purchase order, confirmation, or similar form, even if signed by the parties after the effectiveness hereof, and such terms shall have no force or effect.
