9.1 Assignment. You may not delegate any of your obligations under this Agreement, or assign or transfer this Agreement or any of your rights hereunder, whether by operation of law or otherwise, without the prior written consent of OmniSci. A change of control involving you will constitute an assignment for purposes of the foregoing restriction. Any delegation, assignment or transfer of this Agreement in violation of this Section 10.1 will be void and of no force and effect and a material breach of this Agreement. OmniSci may freely assign or transfer this Agreement. Subject to the foregoing, this Agreement will be binding upon, and inure to the benefit of the parties and their respective successors and assigns.
9.2 Compliance with Laws. You will comply with all applicable laws and regulations relating to your Use of the Software, including without limitation, those relating to export and import, privacy and personal data protection.
9.3 Entire Agreement. This Agreement sets forth the complete understanding between you and OmniSci with respect to the subject matter hereof and supersedes all prior understandings and communications relating thereto. No term or condition of a purchase order or other document you submit to OmniSci which is different from, inconsistent with, or in addition to the terms and conditions set forth herein will be binding upon OmniSci. To the extent that this document may constitute an acceptance, this acceptance is expressly conditioned on your assent to the terms and conditions set forth herein.
9.4 Export Control. You may not Use or otherwise export or reexport the Software except as authorized by United States law and the laws of the jurisdiction in which the Software was obtained. In particular, but without limitation, the Software may not be exported or reexported (a) into any U.S. embargoed countries, or (b) to anyone on the U.S. Treasury Department's list of Specially Designated Nationals or the U.S. Department of Commerce Denied Person’s List or Entity List. By Using the Software, you represent and warrant that you are not located in any such country or on any such list. You also agree that you will not Use the Software for any purposes prohibited by United States law, including, without limitation, the development, design, manufacture or production of missiles, nuclear, chemical or biological weapons.
9.5 Force Majeure. Neither party will be responsible for any failure to perform its obligations under this Agreement (other than obligations to pay money) caused by an event beyond its reasonable control, including but not limited to, wars, riots, labor strikes, natural disasters, the infrastructure of the Internet, or any law, regulation, ordinance or other act or order of any court, government or governmental agency.
9.6 Governing Law; Disputes. This Agreement will be governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of the State of California, as applied to agreements entered into and to be performed entirely within California between California residents. This Agreement will not be governed by the United Nations Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods, the application of which is expressly excluded. Any dispute or claim arising out of or relating to this Agreement, except for those relating to a breach of confidentiality by you, the infringement of OmniSci’s intellectual property rights or the access or Use of the Software in violation of this Agreement (a “Claim”), will be resolved by binding arbitration in accordance with the then current Commercial Arbitration Rules of the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”). You and OmniSci will select a single, mutually acceptable arbitrator knowledgeable about issues relating to the subject matter of this Agreement. In the event that you and OmniSci are unable to agree to such a selection, AAA will appoint a single neutral arbitrator knowledgeable about issues relating to the subject matter of this Agreement to preside over the matter. The seat of arbitration will be San Francisco, California. The arbitration will be conducted in the English language, and at the option of the party seeking relief, by telephone, online, or based solely on written submissions. The arbitrator will not have the authority to modify any provision this Agreement or to award punitive damages. Unless the arbitrator finds the arbitration was frivolous or brought for an improper purpose, the parties will split equally the costs of the arbitration. To the fullest extent permitted by applicable law, you and OmniSci each agree that any proceeding to resolve a Claim will be conducted only in the respective party’s individual capacity and not as a plaintiff or class member in any purported class, consolidated, multiple plaintiff or representative action (“Class Action”). If for any reason a Claim proceeds in court rather than in arbitration, such Claim will be brought only in a court of competent jurisdiction in San Francisco, California, both you and OmniSci agree to accept and submit to the personal jurisdiction of such court, and you and OmniSci each waive any right to a jury trial. You and OmniSci expressly waive any ability to maintain any Class Action in any forum. If the Claim is subject to arbitration, the arbitrator will not have authority to combine or aggregate similar claims or conduct any Class Action nor make an award to any person or entity not a party to the arbitration. Any claim that all or part of this Class Action waiver is unenforceable, unconscionable, void, or voidable may be determined only by a court of competent jurisdiction and not by an arbitrator. In no event will any Claim, or any other action or proceeding by you (including arbitration under this Section 10.7) be instituted more than 1 year after the cause of action arose. Any judgment on the award rendered by the arbitrator may be entered in any court of competent jurisdiction. If a court of competent jurisdiction finds the foregoing arbitration provisions invalid or inapplicable, you and OmniSci each agree to the exclusive jurisdiction of the Federal and State courts located in San Francisco, California, and you and OmniSci each agree to submit to the exercise of personal jurisdiction of such courts for the purposes of litigating any applicable Claim.

9.9 Publicity. OmniSci may include your name and logo on its customer lists and reference the fact that you are a customer of OmniSci.
