The Indemnifying Party will have the sole right to conduct the defense of any Claim for which the Indemnifying Party is responsible hereunder (provided that the Indemnifying Party may not settle any Claim without the Indemnified Party’s prior written approval unless the settlement is for a monetary amount, unconditionally releases the Indemnified Party from all liability without prejudice, does not require any admission by the Indemnified Party, and does not place restrictions upon the Indemnified Party’s business, products or services). The Indemnified Party may participate in the defense or settlement of any such Claim at its own expense and with its own choice of counsel or, if the Indemnifying Party refuses to fulfill its obligation of defense, the Indemnified Party may defend itself and seek reimbursement from the Indemnifying Party.

All notices required or permitted under this Agreement will be in writing, will reference this Agreement, and will be sent to the relevant address provided when Customer signed up for the Services or to such other address as may be specified by the relevant Party to the other Party in accordance with this Section 16(b). Such notices will be deemed given: (i) when delivered personally; (ii) one (1) business day after deposit with a nationally recognized express courier, with written confirmation of receipt; (iii) when sent by email, on the date the email was sent without a bounce back message if sent during normal business hours of the receiving party, and on the next business day if sent after normal business hours of the receiving party; or (iv) three (3) business days after having been sent by registered or certified mail, return receipt requested, postage prepaid.
Either Party’s failure to enforce any provision of this Agreement will not constitute a waiver of future enforcement of that or any other provision. No waiver of any provision of this Agreement will be effective unless it is in writing and signed by the Party granting the waiver.
If any provision of this Agreement is held invalid, illegal or unenforceable, that provision will be enforced to the maximum extent permitted by law, given the fundamental intentions of the Parties, and the remaining provisions of this Agreement will remain in full force and effect.
(e) Governing Law; Jurisdiction.
This Agreement will be governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of the State of California without giving effect to any principles of conflict of laws that would lead to the application of the laws of another jurisdiction. The Parties expressly agree that the United Nations Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods will not apply. Any legal action or proceeding arising under this Agreement will be brought exclusively in the federal or state courts located in Northern District of California and the Parties irrevocably consent to the personal jurisdiction and venue therein.
Neither Party may assign or transfer this Agreement, by operation of law or otherwise, without the other Party’s prior written consent. Any attempt to assign or transfer this Agreement without such consent will be void. Notwithstanding the foregoing, Salespeak may assign or transfer this Agreement to a third party that succeeds to all or substantially all of Salespeak’s business and assets relating to the subject matter of this Agreement, whether by sale, merger, operation of law or otherwise. Subject to the foregoing, this Agreement is binding upon and will inure to the benefit of each of the Parties and their respective successors and permitted assigns.
(g) Equitable Relief.
Each Party agrees that a breach or threatened breach by such Party of any of its obligations under Section 8 or, in the case of Customer, Section 3(b), would cause the other Party irreparable harm and significant damages for which there may be no adequate remedy under law and that, in the event of such breach or threatened breach, the other Party will have the right to seek immediate equitable relief, including a restraining order, an injunction, specific performance and any other relief that may be available from any court, without any requirement to post a bond or other security, or to prove actual damages or that monetary damages are not an adequate remedy. Such remedies are not exclusive and are in addition to all other remedies that may be available at law, in equity or otherwise.
(h) Force Majeure.
Neither Party will be responsible for any failure or delay in the performance of its obligations under this Agreement (except for any payment obligations) due to causes beyond its reasonable control, which may include, without limitation, labor disputes, strikes, lockouts, shortages of or inability to obtain energy, raw materials or supplies, denial of service or other malicious attacks, telecommunications failure or degradation, pandemics, epidemics, public health emergencies, governmental orders and acts (including government-imposed travel restrictions and quarantines), material changes in law, war, terrorism, riot, or acts of God.
Salespeak may use subcontractors, and other third-party providers (“Subcontractors”) in connection with the performance of its own obligations hereunder as it deems appropriate; provided that Salespeak remains responsible for the performance of each such Subcontractor. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in this Agreement, with respect to any third-party vendors including any hosting (e.g. AWS) or payment vendors (e.g. PayPal), Salespeak will use commercially reasonable efforts to guard against any damages or issues arising in connection with such vendors, but will not be liable for the acts or omissions of such third-party vendors except to the extent that it has been finally adjudicated that such damages or issues are caused directly from the gross negligence or willful misconduct of Salespeak.
(j) Export Regulation.
Customer affirms that it is not named on, owned by, or acting on behalf of any U.S. government denied-party list, and it agrees to comply fully with all relevant export control and sanctions laws and regulations of the United States (“Export Laws”) to ensure that neither the Services, software, any Customer Materials, nor any technical data related thereto is: (i) used, exported or re-exported directly or indirectly in violation of Export Laws; or (ii) used for any purposes prohibited by the Export Laws, including, but not limited to, nuclear, chemical, or biological weapons proliferation, missile systems or technology, or restricted unmanned aerial vehicle applications. Customer will complete all undertakings required by Export Laws, including obtaining any necessary export license or other governmental approval.
(k) U.S. Government End Users.
The Services and related software were developed solely at private expense and are “commercial products”, “commercial items”, or “commercial computer software” as defined in the Federal Acquisition Regulation 2.101 and other relevant government procurement regulations including agency supplements. Any use, duplication, or disclosure of the Services or related software by or on behalf of the U.S. government is subject to restrictions as set forth in this Agreement as consistent with federal law and regulations. If these terms fail to meet the U.S. Government’s needs or are inconsistent in any respect with federal law, Customer will immediately discontinue its use of the Services and related software.
(l) Relationship of the Parties.
The relationship between the Parties is that of independent contractors. Nothing in this Agreement will be construed to establish any partnership, joint venture or agency relationship between the Parties. Neither Party will have the power or authority to bind the other or incur any obligations on the other’s behalf without the other Party’s prior written consent.
(m) No Third-Party Beneficiaries.
No provision of this Agreement is intended to confer any rights, benefits, remedies, obligations, or liabilities hereunder upon any person other than the Parties and their respective successors and assigns.
