c. THE REMEDIES SET FORTH IN THIS SECTION 6 ARE THE SOLE AND EXCLUSIVE REMEDIES TO WHICH YOU ARE ENTITLED FOR BREACH OF WARRANTY.
a. Licensor takes certain steps to attempt to minimize unauthorized use and piracy of the Software. In this context, the Software may include a security mechanism that can detect the installation or use of illegal copies of the Software, and collect and transmit data about those illegal copies. By using the Software, You consent to such detection and collection of data, as well as its transmission and use if an illegal copy is detected.
b. The Software utilizes an interface with Transport Layer Security (TLS), which are cryptographic protocols designed to provide communications security over the computer network to allow the Software to connect to Licensor’s secure server in the United States for purposes of delivering You an RSS feed. The importation or use of encrypted protocols such as TLS may contravene the laws of the jurisdiction in which You reside, and You acknowledge and accept that (i) it is Your responsibility to insure that You are in compliance with Your local laws and (ii) Licensor is not responsible to insure Your compliance with local laws or to support You in the use of the TLS encryption if it is against the law in Your jurisdiction. To facilitate compliance, Licensor enables You to opt out of connecting to the RSS feed, thereby disabling the use of the TLS encryption.
a. A party’s exercise of, or failure to exercise, any right, remedy, or privilege under these Terms and Conditions will not constitute a waiver of any rights of that party under these Terms and Conditions.
b. A judicial determination that any provision of these Terms and Conditions is invalid, illegal, or unenforceable shall not affect the enforceability of any other provision.
c. The provisions of Sections 3(b), 4, 5(b), 6, and 7 will survive termination of the license for the Software.
d. You acknowledge and agree that You (and any third party acting on Your behalf) may be required to provide, and Licensor may need to obtain from You, certain information and data with respect to You (including, without limitation, certain limited personal information) and Your business in connection with ordering, registration, activation, updating, validating entitlement to, auditing, monitoring installation of and access to the Software. You hereby consent to Licensor maintaining, using and storing such information and data for such purposes. Without limitation of the generality of the foregoing, You acknowledge and agree that Licensor may from time to time provide information and data, including, without limitation, information and data about Licensee’s use of the Software, to third party distributors and that such provision of information and data may be made across borders, including to jurisdictions with privacy or data protection laws that are less protective of You than the jurisdiction in which You are domiciled. You acknowledge and understand that Licensor may modify its policies regarding data collection and transfer from time to time.
e. These Terms and Conditions shall be governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of the United States and the State of New Mexico, as applied to agreements entered into and to be performed entirely within New Mexico between New Mexico residents without reference to conflict of laws. These Terms and Conditions and the performance of the Parties required hereunder shall not be governed by or otherwise subject to the United Nations Convention for the International Sale of Goods. Any civil suit or proceeding relating to these Terms and Conditions shall be brought only in U.S. Federal District Court or State District Court within the State of New Mexico, and each of the Parties consent to the personal jurisdiction and venue of such courts. Judgment upon any award made in such proceeding may be entered and enforced in any court of competent jurisdiction.
