- Injunctive Relief. Actual or threatened breach of the Agreement (such as, without limitation, provisions on intellectual property (including ownership), license, privacy, data protection and confidentiality) may cause immediate, irreparable harm that is difficult to calculate and cannot be remedied by the payment of damages alone. Either party will be entitled to seek preliminary and permanent injunctive relief and other equitable relief for any such breach.
- Notices. Any notice required to be delivered hereunder will be deemed delivered: (a) upon delivery, if delivered by courier or by hand (against receipt); or (b) three (3) days after posting, if sent by electronic mail, fax, or certified or registered mail, return receipt requested.

- Entire Agreement; Severability; No Waiver; Conflicts; Independent Contractors. This is the entire agreement between the parties relating to this subject matter and supersedes all other commitments, negotiations and understandings. If one or more of the provisions contained in these T&Cs is found by a court of competent jurisdiction to be invalid, illegal or unenforceable in any respect, the validity, legality and enforceability of the remaining provisions will not be affected. The provisions will be revised only to the extent necessary to make them enforceable. The failure of either party to enforce its rights under the Agreement at any time for any period shall not be construed as a waiver of such rights. Nothing herein will constitute either party as the employer, employee, agent or representative of the other party, or both parties as joint venturers for any purpose. Except as provided herein, neither party will have the authority to obligate or bind the other in any manner.
