Without limiting the foregoing, You agree that flowdown provisions, including, but not limited to United States Government Federal Acquisition Regulations (“FARs”), Defense FARs or NASA FARs, shall not apply to PingCAP and PingCAP does not accept such provisions notwithstanding the existence of such provisions. None of the terms and conditions in this Agreement will be deemed waived, amended or modified by PingCAP unless such waiver, amendment or modification is made in writing and signed by an authorized representative of PingCAP. No waiver of rights contained in this Agreement shall constitute a subsequent waiver of such rights or any other rights hereunder. If any provision of this Agreement is held to be invalid or unenforceable by a proper authority having jurisdiction over this Agreement, that provision shall be modified and interpreted to accomplish the objectives of such provision to the greatest extent possible under applicable law and the remainder of this Agreement shall continue in full force and effect. Licensee may not assign or transfer, by operation of law or otherwise, any of its rights under this Agreement (including without limitation its licenses with respect to the Licensed Software) to any third party without PingCAP’s prior written consent. Any attempted assignment or transfer in violation of the foregoing will be null and void. This Agreement is governed by the laws of the State of California, without reference to its conflict of law principles. The UN Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods (CISG) is specifically excluded and shall not be applicable to this Agreement. You agree to comply with all U.S. and foreign export control laws and regulations, including but not limited to the U.S. Export Administration Act of 1979, as amended, and successor legislation, and the Export Administration Regulations passed by the Department of Commerce. You expressly agree that You shall not export, directly or indirectly, re-export, divert, or transfer the Licensed Software or any direct product thereof to any destination, company or person restricted or prohibited by U.S. export controls. In the event of a dispute arising out of or relating to this Agreement, the prevailing party shall be entitled to recover its reasonable attorneys’ fees and costs. THE PARTIES WAIVE ANY RIGHT TO A JURY TRIAL IN ANY PROCEEDING ARISING OUT OF OR RELATING TO THIS AGREEMENT.
