Assignment: This Agreement, and any rights and licenses granted hereunder, may not be transferred or assigned by you, but may be assigned by Verbling without restriction. Any attempted transfer or assignment in violation hereof shall be null and void.
Governing Law: Enforcement of these Terms will be governed by the laws of the State of California, excluding its conflict and choice of law principles.

If any provision of these Terms is deemed invalid by a court of competent jurisdiction, the invalidity of such provision shall not affect the validity of the remaining provisions of these Terms, which shall remain in full force and effect.
No Waiver: Our failure to enforce any right or provision in these Terms will not constitute a waiver of such right or provision unless acknowledged and agreed to by us in writing.
