GOVERNING LAW. If you acquired this Software in the United States of America, then this Agreement will be governed by and construed in accordance with the substantive laws of the State of California, U.S.A., except as governed by federal law. If you acquired this Software outside of the United States of America, then local law may apply. The sole and exclusive jurisdiction and venue for actions related to the subject matter hereof shall be the state and federal courts located in San Mateo County, California United States of America, unless waived by you in writing for the particular instance or if contrary to local law. You and Versus Evil each consent to the jurisdiction of such courts and agree that process may be served in the manner provided herein for giving of notices or otherwise as allowed by the State of Texas or federal law. This Agreement will not be governed by the United Nations Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods.
DISPUTE RESOLUTION. If you and Versus Evil are unable to resolve a dispute through informal negotiations within 30 days after receipt of the notice of dispute (as sent by you to us at our legal address provided above, or by us to you at your email address or physical address as determined by Versus Evil), you and Versus Evil each agree that any claim or controversy arising out of this Agreement or the Software shall be settled by expedited binding arbitration in accordance with the rules of the American Arbitration Association. Such arbitration shall take place in San Mateo County, California, USA, and you waive any claim that such forum is inconvenient. Any such claim or controversy shall be arbitrated solely on an individual basis and shall not be consolidated with a claim of any other party. The arbitrator may not change the terms of this Agreement. The arbitrator may award injunctive or other equitable relief to enforce the terms of this Agreement, provided that no injunctive or equitable relief may be awarded that would enjoin or impair our rights or ability to distribute or otherwise market, advertise, promote, or exploit the Software. In the event it is judicially determined that any claim or controversy arising out of or related to this Agreement or the Software cannot be settled by expedited binding arbitration as provided above, then you agree that any such claims or controversies shall be brought and maintained in the state courts located within San Mateo County, California, USA, and you waive any claim that either such forum is inconvenient. The foregoing does not preclude us from seeking any injunctive or other relief for protection of our intellectual property rights or similar rights in any court of competent jurisdiction. Because we would be irreparably damaged if the terms of this Agreement were not specifically enforced, you agree that we will be entitled, without bond, other security or proof of damages, to appropriate equitable remedies with respect to breaches of this Agreement, in addition to such other remedies as Versus Evil may otherwise have under applicable laws. The prevailing party in any action to enforce this Agreement shall be entitled to recover costs and expenses including, without limitation, reasonable attorney’s fees.
Versus Evil will further have the right, but not the obligation, to defend or settle, at our option, any action or proceeding arising from a claim that your permitted use of the Software infringes or misappropriates any patent, copyright, or other ownership of a third party. All notices of any such claim must be sent to Versus Evil within fourteen (14) days of your first knowledge of any such alleged infringement to our legal address as provided in the Notices and Consent to Electronic Notice section of this Agreement. We will have have sole discretion and control over the defense or settlement of any such claim as provided in the foregoing paragraph, unless it declines to defend or settle such claim, in which case you are free to pursue such course of action as you reasonably determine. We are not obligated to indemnify or hold you harmless with respect to any actions, proceedings or claims. In the event of such a claim, or if we believe such a claim is likely, we may (a) procure for you the right to continue using the Software; (b) modify the Software so that it becomes non-infringing; or (c) terminate this Agreement. You agree to comply with any court judgment or other conditions imposed on you or us as a result of an allegation of patent or copyright infringement (whether by court order, agreement or otherwise), whether or not such judgment or conditions contradict the conditions of this Agreement, including without limitation, ceasing use of the Software.
