This Agreement may not be released, discharged, changed or modified other than in accordance with its terms except by an instrument in writing signed by a duly authorized representative of each of the parties hereto.
Remedies. All rights and remedies conferred under this Agreement or by any other instrument or law shall be cumulative and may be exercised singularly or concurrently.
Choice of Law and Jurisdiction. This Agreement shall be governed by and construed under and pursuant to the laws of the State of California, exclusive of the laws relating to conflict of laws. The State and Federal courts located in Santa Clara County, California, shall have exclusive jurisdiction over any dispute arising hereunder, and the parties hereby consent to the personal jurisdiction of such courts. The United Nations Convention for Contracts for the International Sale of Goods shall not apply to this Agreement.
No Assignment.

For purposes of this Agreement, any merger, consolidation, or direct or indirect change in control of You shall be deemed an assignment. Any assignment in violation of the terms hereof shall be void and of no force or effect.
Severability. If any term, clause or provision of this Agreement shall be judged invalid for any reason whatsoever by a court of competent jurisdiction, such invalidity shall not affect the validity or operation of any other term, clause or provision and such invalid term, clause or provision shall be deemed to have been modified, to the extent necessary to make it valid and enforceable or, if such term, clause or provision cannot be so modified, it shall be deemed deleted from this Agreement.
No Waiver. The failure of either party to enforce at any time any of the provisions of this Agreement, or the failure to require at any time performance by the other party of any of the provisions of this Agreement, shall in no way be construed to be a present or future waiver of such provisions, nor in any way affect the right of either party to enforce each and every such provision thereafter.

Injunctive Relief. You acknowledge that because of the confidential and proprietary nature of the Beta Software and Beta Test Materials, neither termination of this Agreement, arbitration, nor an action at law would be an adequate remedy for a breach by You of this Agreement. Accordingly, You agree that, in the event of such breach, AppOrbit and its licensors will be irreparably harmed and, in addition to all other remedies which AppOrbit or its licensors may have, AppOrbit and its licensors shall be entitled to relief in equity, including a temporary restraining order, temporary or preliminary injunction, and permanent mandatory or prohibitory injunction to restrain the continuation of any such breach or to compel compliance with the provisions of this Agreement without the necessity of proof of actual damage.
