All disputes, claims, or controversies arising out of or relating to this Agreement that are not resolved by the Parties' good faith attempt to negotiate a resolution will be submitted to final and binding arbitration before JAMS, or its successor, in Los Angeles, California, USA, pursuant to the United States Arbitration Act, 9 U.S.C. Sec. 1 et seq. The arbitration shall be conducted in accordance with the provisions of JAMS Streamlined Arbitration Rules and Procedures in effect at the time of filing of the demand for arbitration.

Either Party may, without waiving any remedy under the Agreement, seek from any court of competent jurisdiction any interim or provisional relief that such Party deems necessary to protect its Confidential Information and Intellectual Property Rights, pending the establishment of the arbitral tribunal (or pending the arbitral tribunal's determination of the merits of the claim).
Partie shall not be responsible to you for any failure or delay in its performance under this Agreement due to Acts of God or other unforeseen circumstances beyond Partie's reasonable control.

The waiver by either Party of a breach of any provision of this Agreement in one instance shall not operate or be construed as a waiver of any subsequent breach of the same provision or any other provision of this Agreement.
You may not assign this Agreement, in whole or in part, without Partie's prior written consent. Any attempt to assign this Agreement without such consent will be null and void. Partie may assign this Agreement and all rights and obligations hereunder upon written notice to you.
