U.S. Government End Users. The Software is a ''commercial item,'' as that term is defined in 48 C. F.

Miscellaneous.  No failure or delay in exercising any right hereunder will operate as a waiver thereof, nor will any partial exercise of any right or power hereunder preclude further exercise.  If any provision of this Agreement shall be adjudged by any court of competent jurisdiction to be unenforceable or invalid, that provision shall be limited or eliminated to the minimum extent necessary so that this Agreement shall otherwise remain in full force and effect and enforceable.  This Agreement shall be deemed to have been made in, and shall be construed pursuant to the laws of the State of California without regard to conflicts of laws provisions thereof, and without regard to the United Nations Convention on the International Sale of Goods or the Uniform Computer Information Transactions Act.  Any action arising from this Agreement shall be brought in the state or federal courts in and for Santa Clara County, California and the parties consent to the exclusive jurisdiction and venue of such courts.  Any waivers or amendments shall be effective only if made in writing.  This Agreement is the complete and exclusive statement of the mutual understanding of the parties and supersedes and cancels all previous written and oral agreements and communications relating to the subject matter of this Agreement.  The prevailing party in any action to enforce this Agreement will be entitled to recover its attorney’s fees and costs in connection with such action.
