5.1. Entire Agreement. These Terms represent the complete agreement concerning the subject matter of the license granted hereunder and Your use of any of the Services. MSI may amend these Terms at any time by sending information regarding the Terms amendment to the email address You have provided to MSI. You manifest intent to accept these amended terms if You continue to use the Service after such amended terms have been sent to You. If You do not agree with any such amended terms You must notify MSI during the 30-day period after such amended terms have been posted and at the end of such 30-day period these Terms shall be deemed terminated unless MSI agrees to waive such amended terms to which You object.

5.2. Governing Law & Venue. These Terms shall be governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of the State of California and the laws of the United States, without giving effect to any principles of conflict of law. You agree that any action at law or in equity arising out of or relating to these Terms shall be filed only in the state or federal courts located in Los Angeles, California, and You hereby consent and submit to the personal jurisdiction of such courts for the purposes of litigating any such action. The parties specifically disclaim applicability of (i) the United Nations Convention on the Sale of Goods and (ii) any Incoterms.

5.3.   Severability. If any of the provisions of these Terms shall be unlawful, void, or for any reason unenforceable, then that provision shall be deemed severable from these Terms and shall not affect the validity and enforceability of any remaining provisions.

5.4. Publicity. MSI shall have the right to identify You as a user of the Service. You agree that MSI may use any logo and/or name associated with You on MSI’s website and other materials in order to identify You as an MSI user.

5.5. Notices. Notices by MSI to You may be sent to the email address You provide on the Registration Form or otherwise by any means that MSI determines in its sole discretion as likely to come to Your attention. All notices sent by You to MSI in connection with these Terms shall be in writing and sent by first class mail or certified mail (receipt being deemed 72 hours after postage and return receipt requested) or personally delivered at the address of MSI set forth herein.

5.6. Waiver. You agree not to bring or participate in any class action lawsuit against MSI or any of its employees or affiliates. You agree not to bring a claim under these Terms more than two years after the expiration of these Terms. The failure of MSI to partially or fully exercise any right shall not prevent the subsequent exercise of such right. The waiver by MSI of any breach shall not be deemed a waiver of any subsequent breach of the same or any other term of these Terms. No remedy made available to MSI by any of the provisions of these Terms is intended to be exclusive of any other remedy, and each and every remedy shall be cumulative and in addition to every other remedy available at law or in equity.

5.7. No Exclusivity. You acknowledge and agree that MSI is in the business of providing technologies and services to support secure, streamlined digital delivery of high-value media files including watermarking and other solutions and that MSI may provide such services to third parties, including any competitors of You, which are the same or similar to the Services provided to You hereunder.

5.8. Assignment. These Terms shall be binding upon and inure to the benefit of the parties and their permitted assigns. Neither party may assign this Agreement, assign its rights or delegate its duties hereunder (whether directly or indirectly, in whole or in part, by operation of law or otherwise), without the prior written consent of the other party, which shall not be unreasonably withheld or delayed. Notwithstanding the foregoing, MSI may assign this Agreement, without Your prior written consent in connection with a merger, acquisition, change of control or sale of substantially all of its assets (or any substantially similar transaction). Additionally, MSI may assign all or any part of the performance of this Agreement to an Affiliate Entity without Your prior written consent. For the purposes of this section, the term “Affiliate Entity” shall mean any entity that now or in the future controls, is controlled by, or is under common control with MSI.
