Assignment. Neither Party may assign any of its rights or obligations hereunder, whether by operation of law or otherwise, without the prior written consent of the other Party (not to be unreasonably withheld, conditioned or delayed). Notwithstanding the foregoing, either Party may assign this Agreement in its entirety, without consent of the other party, in connection with a merger, acquisition, corporate reorganization, or sale of all or substantially all of its assets not involving a direct competitor of the other Party. Any attempt by a Party to assign its rights or obligations under this Agreement in breach of this Section shall be void and of no effect. Subject to the foregoing, this Agreement shall bind and inure to the benefit of the Parties, their respective successors and permitted assigns.
Governing Law. This Agreement shall be governed exclusively by the internal laws of the State of Indiana, without regard to its conflicts of laws rules. Client and Provider agree to make a good-faith effort to resolve any disagreement arising out of, or in connection with, this Agreement through negotiation. If any negotiation required by this section fails, then at the written request of either Party, any controversy, dispute or claim arising out of or relating to this Agreement or any breach hereof shall be finally settled by arbitration by a single arbitrator in Indianapolis, Indiana pursuant to the Commercial Arbitration Rules then in effect of the American Arbitration Association. The award made in such arbitration shall be entered in any court having jurisdiction thereof solely for the purpose of applying for an order confirming, modifying, correcting or vacating the award. The arbitrator shall have no power to alter, amend, revoke or suspend any of the provisions of this Agreement. Except to the extent required by law, no party, arbitrator, representative, counsel or witness shall disclose or confirm to any person not present at the arbitration hearings any information about the hearings, including the names of the parties and arbitrators, the nature and amount of the claims, the financial condition of any party, the expected date of hearing or the award made. Notwithstanding the foregoing, in the event Client fails to make timely payment of Fees or other sums due hereunder, Provider may use collection services in the pursuit of such amounts owed without having to go through the arbitration proceedings set forth in this paragraph.
Force Majeure. Except for obligations of Client for the payment of Fees or other sums hereunder, if either Party is rendered unable, wholly or in part, by force majeure to carry out its obligations under this Agreement, that party shall give to the other party prompt notice of the force majeure with reasonable specificity. Thereupon the obligations of the Party giving notice, so far as they are affected by the force majeure, shall be suspended during, but no longer than, the continuance of the force majeure. The affected Party shall use all reasonable diligence to remove the force majeure as quickly as possible. The term “force majeure” shall without limitation mean an act of God, strike, industrial disturbance, act of the public enemy, war, blockage, public riot, lightning, fire, storm, flood, failure of utilities, failure of internet colocation facilities or other Internet failure, any unauthorized server or computer violation or other security violation, explosion, governmental restraint, or any other cause, whether of the kind specifically enumerated above or otherwise, which is not reasonably within the control of the Party claiming suspension.
Entire Agreement. This Agreement, including all Statements of Work, constitutes the entire agreement between the Parties, and supersedes all prior and contemporaneous agreements, proposals or representations, written or oral, concerning its subject matter. No modification, amendment, or waiver of any provision of this Agreement shall be effective unless in writing and signed by the Party against whom the modification, amendment, or waiver is to be asserted. To the extent of any conflict or inconsistency between the provisions in the body of this Agreement and any Statement of Work, the terms of this Agreement shall prevail unless expressly stated otherwise in the applicable Statement of Work. The language used in this Agreement shall be deemed to be language chosen by both Parties hereto to express their mutual intent, and no rule of strict construction against either Party shall apply to rights granted herein or to any term of condition of this Agreement.
Precedence. To the extent that the Parties have entered into any other written agreements for the provision of services that are beyond the scope of the Cohort Service provided pursuant to this Agreement, and to the extent that such agreements conflict with the terms of this Agreement, the terms of this Agreement shall control as to the contents hereof and the subject matter contained herein with respect to the provision of the Cohort Service, unless expressly provided to the contrary in such other agreements.
Electronic Execution; Counterparts. This Agreement may be executed in multiple counterparts and by electronic signature, whether digital, encrypted, or otherwise, it being the intention of the Parties hereto that all signatures so affixed shall have the same effect as manual signatures, and each counterpart shall constitute an original, but all of which taken together shall constitute a single instrument.
