e) Headings and Changes. Titles and headings are used for ease of reference only and do not affect the interpretation of this Agreement. Any changes to this Agreement must be in writing and signed by both Parties. For the avoidance of doubt, any additional or different terms which a Party seeks to impose in any order or written communication are void unless agreed and signed by both Parties.
f) Export Restrictions. Customer agrees to comply with any applicable international and national laws that apply to the GC Grypp Platform, including the U.S. Export Administration Regulations, as well as end-user, end-use and destination restrictions issued by U.S., the U.K. and other governments.
g) Equitable Relief. The Parties acknowledge that the unauthorized use or disclosure of any proprietary and Confidential Information (including without limitation details of the GC Grypp Platform) would cause irreparable harm and significant injury that would be difficult to ascertain and that would not be compensable by damages alone. The Parties therefore agree that if Customer accesses or uses the GC Grypp Platform in a manner not authorized by this Agreement, or the Receiving Party discloses Confidential Information of the Disclosing Party in a manner not authorized by this Agreement, the injury caused is irreparable and that the injured Party shall be entitled, without waiving any additional rights or remedies available to it under this Agreement, at law, in equity, or by statute, to such injunctive or equitable relief as may be deemed proper by a court of competent jurisdiction without the necessity of filing a bond (where applicable).
h) Legal and Attorneys’ Fees. The Party prevailing in the enforcement of the provisions of this Agreement, including collection of any amounts due hereunder, shall be entitled to recover from the other Party, in addition to all sums to that it is entitled or any other relief, at law or in equity, reasonable and necessary attorneys’ fees and any court costs.
i) Limit on Actions. Unless prohibited by local law neither Party will commence a legal action more than two (2) years after the cause of action arose. A cause of action arises when the injured Party actually learns of or, through the exercise of reasonable care, could have learned of the right to bring an action, whichever is earlier.
j) Ambiguities Construed Neutrally. The doctrine that any ambiguity contained in a contract shall, where permitted by law, be construed against the Party whose counsel has drafted the contract is expressly waived by each of the Parties with respect to this Agreement.
k) Reference and Press Releases. Customer agrees to provide assets for a case study to be posted by Grypp Corp on the Grypp Corp website and other publications the language of which will be agreeable to both Parties, such agreement not to be unreasonably withheld or delayed. Assets will include but are not limited to a logo, application images, and quotes / testimonials from a representative of Customer executive management. Grypp Corp will have the right to maintain a link to the case study for the duration of the Agreement. Customer agrees to participate in a marketing planning meeting with Grypp Corp, usually held within six (6) months of general release/public launch of the Customer version of the GC Grypp Platform. Both Parties agree not to issue any press releases without the prior written approval of both Parties.
l) Complete Agreement. This Agreement, including these Standard Terms and Conditions, and the related Order Confirmation, constitutes the entire agreement between the Parties concerning Customer’s access and use of the GC Grypp Platform and/or Products, and supersedes all previous communications, representations, proposals and agreements, either oral or written regarding the subject matter of this Agreement. No action or omission by either Party shall constitute a waiver of any right or duty afforded either Party under this Agreement, nor shall any such action or omission constitute an approval of any breach under this Agreement, unless confirmed in writing.
m) Third Parties. This Agreement shall not be enforceable by any Third Party.
