Following the Initial Term, this Agreement shall renew automatically for consecutive periods of one (1) year (each a “Renewal Term”, and each Renewal Term together with the Initial Term, the “Term”), unless You inform Us in writing at least thirty (30) days prior to the end of the Term of your intent to terminate the Agreement upon completion of the Term.

The modified agreement will be effective immediately upon posting on our website and you agree to the new posted agreement by continuing the use of the services. We will use reasonable efforts to notify you of modifications that are material to your use of the services or software, which notice may be provided by email or a notification posted to your account. If you do not agree with the modified agreement, your only remedy is to (a) discontinue using the services and related software, as well as any free trial (if applicable), and (b) terminate this agreement in accordance with its terms, in which case we shall refund to you any prepaid fees. The headings in this agreement are for purposes of reference only and shall not limit or otherwise affect the meaning hereof. Sections 1, 4, 6, 8, 9, 10, 12, 14, 15, 17, 23, 25, 27, 28 and 30 shall survive the expiration or termination of this agreement.
41. Governing Law; Consent to Jurisdiction.
This Agreement shall be governed by, and construed and enforced in accordance with, the laws of the State of New York, exclusive of conflicts of laws provisions. Each party hereby consents to be subject to the personal jurisdiction of any court located in the State of New York (the “Applicable Courts”) in any action or proceeding relating to, arising out of or in connection with this Agreement, and further agrees that any such action or proceeding shall be litigated in the Applicable Courts. The application of the UN Convention on Contracts for International Sale of Goods is expressly excluded.
42. Federal Government End Use Provisions.
We provide the Services, including related Software and technology, for ultimate federal government end use solely in accordance with the following: Government technical data and software rights related to the Services include only those rights customarily provided to the public as defined in this Agreement. This customary commercial license is provided in accordance with FAR 12.211 (Technical Data) and FAR 12.212 (Software) and, for Department of Defense transactions, DFAR 252.227-7015 (Technical Data – Commercial Items) and DFAR 227.7202-3 (Rights in Commercial Computer Software or Computer Software Documentation). If a government agency has a need for rights not granted under these terms, it must negotiate with Us to determine if there are acceptable terms for granting those rights, and a mutually acceptable written addendum specifically granting those rights must be included in any applicable agreement.
We have the right to discontinue the Services at any time through notice to You at Our sole discretion. This Agreement shall be binding and shall inure to the benefit of the parties hereto and their respective successors and permitted assigns. This Agreement (including the Order Forms) may not be assigned by You (whether by operation of law or otherwise) without Our prior written consent, such consent not to be unreasonably withheld. We may assign this Agreement (including the Order Forms) without Your consent or notice to You. No failure by either party to exercise or enforce any rights under this Agreement shall act as a waiver of such rights. The parties are independent contractors. This Agreement does not create a partnership, franchise, joint venture, agency, fiduciary or employment relationship between the parties. If any provision of this Agreement is held to be invalid or unenforceable, the remaining provisions of this Agreement will remain in full force and the unenforceable provision shall be interpreted so as to render it enforceable while approximating the parties’ intent as closely as possible.
44. High-risk Activities.
The services are not fault-tolerant and are not designed or intended for use or resale as on-line control equipment or in hazardous environments requiring fail-safe performance, such as in the operation of nuclear facilities, aircraft navigation or aircraft communication systems, mass transit, air traffic control, direct life support machines, dedicated emergency call handling systems (e.g. In connection with an emergency 911 call center, as opposed to a VoIP application that processes calls which include emergency 911 calls) or weapons systems, in which the failure of a product could lead directly to death, personal injury, or severe physical or environmental damage (“high-risk activities”). If you use a service for high-risk activities, you do so at your own risk and you assume all responsibility and liability for such use too. You agree that we, our affiliates, our successors and all of their respective officers, directors, employees, licensors, suppliers and authorized providers will not be liable for any claims or damages arising from or related to use of the services for high risk activities to the maximum extent such limitation or exclusion is permitted by applicable law.
