21. Geographic Scope.  Although you may have accessed the Services or Software outside of the United States of America, delivery of the Services or Software by NodeRabbit or its suppliers will only occur within the United States of America, and NodeRabbit’s obligations hereunder are valid only in the United States of America.

22. Governing Law; Exclusive Forum. These Terms of Use, and the relationship between you and NodeRabbit resulting from your use or attempted use of the Services or Software, and the resolution of any dispute arising out of that relationship, shall all be governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts, without regard to any conflict of law principles or provisions. You agree that any legal action or proceeding arising out of or related in any manner to these Terms of Use, or the relationship between you and NodeRabbit resulting from these Terms of Use or your use or attempted use of the Services or Software, shall be brought exclusively in the state or federal courts located within Suffolk County, Massachusetts. The parties expressly waive any right to a jury trial for disputes related to the subject matter of this Agreement.

23. Injunctive Relief. Your use of the Services or Software in violation of these Terms of Use would cause irreparable harm to NodeRabbit, its Affiliates and suppliers for which no adequate remedy at law exists, and under such circumstances NodeRabbit, its Affiliates and suppliers will be entitled to equitable relief, without posting bond or other security, including, but not limited to, preliminary and permanent injunctive relief.

24. Miscellaneous. If any part of this Agreement is determined to be invalid or unenforceable, then such invalid or unenforceable provision will be deemed superseded by a valid, enforceable provision that most closely matches the intent of the original provision and the remainder of the Agreement will continue in effect. If any provision(s) is found to be contrary to law, then such provision(s) will be construed, as nearly as possible, to reflect the intentions of the parties with the other provisions remaining in full force and effect. NodeRabbit’s failure to exercise or enforce any right or provision of this Agreement will not constitute a waiver of such right or provision unless agreed to by NodeRabbit in a writing signed by a duly authorized representative of NodeRabbit. NodeRabbit reserves the right to modify these Terms of Use, and related Acceptable Use Policy at any time by providing such revised terms to you. Your continued use of the Software or Services shall constitute your acceptance to be bound by any such revised terms and conditions.

25. Entire Agreement. The Agreement constitutes the entire agreement between NodeRabbit and you with respect to the Software and Services and supersedes all other (prior or contemporaneous) communications and proposals, whether electronic, oral, or non-electronic, between NodeRabbit and you regarding them. You agree that any terms or conditions contained in any document, including but not limited to a purchase order, acknowledgement, email, or other document that you may now or later provide to NodeRabbit, will have no effect and that this Agreement is the only contract between NodeRabbit and you regarding the Software and Services and may only be amended as set forth herein.
