(c) Waiver. Either Party’s failure to enforce any provision of this Agreement will not constitute a waiver of future enforcement of that or any other provision. No waiver of any provision of this Agreement will be effective unless it is in writing and signed by the Party granting the waiver.
(d) Severability. If any provision of this Agreement is held invalid, illegal or unenforceable, that provision will be enforced to the maximum extent permitted by law, given the fundamental intentions of the Parties, and the remaining provisions of this Agreement will remain in full force and effect.
(e) Governing Law; Jurisdiction. This Agreement will be governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of the State of Delaware without giving effect to any principles of conflict of laws that would lead to the application of the laws of another jurisdiction. The Parties expressly agree that the United Nations Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods will not apply. Any legal action or proceeding arising under this Agreement will be brought exclusively in the federal or state courts located in Dallas County, Texas and the Parties irrevocably consent to the personal jurisdiction and venue therein.
(f) Assignment. Neither Party may assign or transfer this Agreement, by operation of law or otherwise, without the other Party’s prior written consent. Any attempt to assign or transfer this Agreement without such consent will be void. Notwithstanding the foregoing, either Party may assign or transfer this Agreement to a third party that succeeds to all or substantially all of the assigning Party’s business and assets relating to the subject matter of this Agreement, whether by sale, merger, operation of law or otherwise. Subject to the foregoing, this Agreement is binding upon and will inure to the benefit of each of the Parties and their respective successors and permitted assigns.
(g) Equitable Relief. Each Party agrees that a breach or threatened breach by such Party of any of its obligations under Section 5 or, in the case of Customer, Section 2(c), would cause the other Party irreparable harm and significant damages for which there may be no adequate remedy under law and that, in the event of such breach or threatened breach, the other Party will have the right to seek immediate equitable relief, including a restraining order, an injunction, specific performance and any other relief that may be available from any court. Such remedies are not exclusive and are in addition to all other remedies that may be available at law, in equity or otherwise.
(h) Force Majeure. Neither Party will be responsible for any failure or delay in the performance of its obligations under this Agreement (except for any payment obligations) due to causes beyond its reasonable control, which may include labor disputes, strikes, lockouts, shortages of or inability to obtain energy, raw materials or supplies, denial of service or other malicious attacks, telecommunications failure or degradation, pandemics, epidemics, public health emergencies, governmental orders and acts (including government-imposed travel restrictions and quarantines), material changes in law, war, terrorism, riot, or acts of God.
(i) Subcontracting. Securonix may use subcontractors, and other third-party providers (“Subcontractors”) in connection with the performance of its own obligations hereunder as it deems appropriate, provided that Securonix remains responsible for the performance of each such Subcontractor.
(j) Export Regulation. Customer affirms that it is not named on, owned by, or acting on behalf of any U.S. government denied-party list, and it agrees to comply fully with all relevant export control and sanctions laws and regulations of the United States (“Export Laws”) to ensure that neither the Services, Software, any Customer Materials, nor any technical data related thereto is: (i) used, exported or re-exported directly or indirectly in violation of Export Laws; or (ii) used for any purposes prohibited by the Export Laws, including, but not limited to, nuclear, chemical, or biological weapons proliferation, missile systems or technology, or restricted unmanned aerial vehicle applications. Customer will complete all undertakings required by Export Laws, including obtaining any necessary export license or other governmental approval.

(l) Relationship of the Parties. The relationship between the Parties is that of independent contractors. Nothing in this Agreement will be construed to establish any partnership, joint venture or agency relationship between the Parties. Neither Party will have the power or authority to bind the other or incur any obligations on the other’s behalf without the other Party’s prior written consent.
(m) No Third-Party Beneficiaries. No provision of this Agreement is intended to confer any rights, benefits, remedies, obligations, or liabilities hereunder upon any Person other than the Parties and their respective successors and assigns.
