13. Injunctive Relief
Each party acknowledges that any violation by that party of its covenants in these Terms and Conditions (if any) relating to intellectual property rights, confidential or proprietary information, or trade secrets would result in damage to the other party that is largely intangible but nonetheless real, and that is incapable of complete remedy by an award of damages. Accordingly, any such violation shall give the other party the right to a court-ordered injunction or other appropriate order to specifically enforce those covenants. The party against whom any such injunction is entered agrees to pay to the other party any reasonable expenses, including but not limited to attorney's fees, incurred in obtaining such specific enforcement (in addition to any other relief to which the other party may be entitled).
14. Attorney's Fees
In the event any action is brought to enforce any provision of these Terms and Conditions or to declare a breach of these Terms and Conditions, Acculynx shall be entitled to recover, in addition to any other amounts awarded, reasonable legal and other related costs and expenses, including attorney's fees, incurred thereby.
15. Assignment; Binding Agreement
You may not assign, subcontract, or delegate your rights, duties, or obligations under these Terms and Conditions or any license granted or created hereunder whether by operation of law, change of control, or in any other manner, without the prior written consent of Acculynx. Subject to the foregoing, these Terms and Conditions shall bind and inure to the benefit of the parties, their affiliates, their respective successors and permitted assigns.
16. No Waiver
No failure or delay by either party in exercising any right under these Terms and Conditions shall constitute a waiver of that right. Other than as expressly stated herein, the remedies provided to Acculynx herein are in addition to, and not exclusive of, any other remedies of a party at law or in equity.
17. Severability; Blue-Penciling
If any provision of these Terms and Conditions is held by a court of competent jurisdiction to be contrary to law, the provision shall be changed by the court or interpreted so as best to accomplish the objectives of the original provisions to the fullest extent permitted by law, and the remaining provisions of these Terms and Conditions shall remain in effect, unless the modification or severance of any provision has a material adverse effect on a party, in which case such party may terminate any license granted hereunder by notice to the other party.
The obligations of the parties under these Terms and Conditions that by their nature would continue beyond the termination, cancellation or expiration of the license(s) granted hereunder, shall survive termination, cancellation, or expiration of such license(s).
19. Choice of Law
These Terms and Conditions shall be governed exclusively by, and construed exclusively in accordance with, the laws of the State of Illinois in the United States, without regarding to its conflict of laws provisions. These Terms and Conditions will not be governed by the United Nations Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods, the application of which is expressly excluded.
20. Jurisdiction; Venue
The federal courts of the United States in the Northern District of Illinois, Western Division, and the state courts of the State of Illinois in Winnebago County, Illinois, shall have exclusive jurisdiction and venue to enforce these Terms and Conditions or to otherwise adjudicate any dispute arising out of, or relating to, these Terms and Conditions and any license granted hereunder. Each party hereby consents to the jurisdiction of such courts and waives any right it may otherwise have to challenge the appropriateness of such forums, whether on the basis of the doctrine of forum non conveniens or otherwise.
