If any provision of this Agreement is found to be unenforceable or invalid, that provision will be limited or eliminated to the minimum extent necessary so that this Agreement will otherwise remain in full force and effect and enforceable.

No agency, partnership, joint venture, or employment is created as a result of this Agreement and Customer does not have any authority of any kind to bind or attempt to bind Service Provider in any respect whatsoever. In any action or proceeding to enforce rights under this Agreement, the prevailing party will be entitled to recover costs and attorneys’ fees.

The parties agree that any material breach of Section 2 or 3 will cause irreparable injury and that injunctive relief in a court of competent jurisdiction will be appropriate to prevent an initial or continuing breach of Section 2 or 3 in additional to any other relief to which the owner of such Proprietary Information may be entitled. This Agreement shall be governed by the laws of the State of California without regard to its conflict of laws provisions. Any action or proceeding arising from or relating to this Agreement must be brought in a federal court in the Northern District of California, or in a state court in San Francisco, California, and each party irrevocably submits to the jurisdiction and venue of any such court in any such action or proceeding.
