Subject to Section 20 (Disputes) each party will bring any action or proceeding arising from or relating to this Agreement exclusively in a federal or state court in Orange County, California (U.S.A.).  You irrevocably submit to the personal jurisdiction and venue of any such court in any such action or proceeding brought in such courts by Common Areas. If any provision of this Agreement is held to be unenforceable, that provision will be removed and the remaining provisions will remain in full force.  The parties expressly exclude (as may be applicable) the application of the Uniform Computer Information Transactions Act (UCITA) and the United Nations Convention on the International Sale of Goods.  The failure of either party to require performance by the other party of any provision hereof shall not affect the full right to require such performance at any time thereafter; nor shall the waiver by either party of a breach of any provision hereof be taken or held to be a waiver of the provision itself.  Neither this Agreement nor any of Your rights or obligations hereunder may be assigned, transferred or delegated by You in whole or in part, and whether by operation of law or otherwise, without the prior written approval of Common Areas.  Any assignment, transfer or delegation in derogation of the foregoing shall be null and void.  Common Areas may assign or transfer this Agreement for any reason with or without notice to You.  This Agreement (including the Addendums included herewith) comprises the complete and exclusive statement of the agreement between Common Areas and You with respect to the Software and supersedes any proposal or prior agreement, oral or written, and any other communications between the parties in relation to the subject matter of this Agreement.  Each party is acting solely as an independent contractor and no agency, employment, joint venture, partnership, or fiduciary relationship is created between the parties by this Agreement.
