  12. General Terms. Neither party has an obligation under this Agreement to sell or purchase any item from the other party. Nothing herein shall prevent Respond’s reassignment of its employees and contractors. Evaluator does not acquire any rights in and to the Software, except for the limited right to use the Software as described in the Agreement.  In addition, the Agreement is not intended to prevent Respond from using ideas, concepts, know-how or techniques related to the Software that are retained in the unaided memories of Respond’s employees or contractors who have had access to the Software.  An employee’s or contractor’s memory will be considered to be unaided if the employee or contractor has not intentionally memorized a concept for the purpose of retaining and subsequently using or disclosing it. This Agreement constitutes the parties’ entire agreement and supersedes all prior or contemporaneous oral or written communications, proposals, agreements and representations between them related to the subject matter contained herein.  This Agreement may be changed only if agreed to in writing and signed by an authorized signatory of each party.  Evaluator agrees to comply strictly with all applicable export control laws and regulations. In the event that any part of the Agreement is found to be unenforceable, the remainder shall continue in effect, to the extent permissible by law and consistent with the intent of the parties as of the Effective Date. Any action related to the Agreement will be governed by California law and applicable federal law.  The venue for litigation will be the appropriate courts located in San Francisco or Santa Clara counties, California.  Choice of law rules of any jurisdiction and the United Nations Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods will not apply to any dispute arising out of or related to this Agreement.

PLEASE READ THIS AGREEMENT CAREFULLY BEFORE USING THE SOFTWARE OR SERVICES.  BY CLICKING THE ACCEPT BUTTON OR BY USING OR ACCESSING THE SOFTWARE IN ANY WAY, YOU AS THE EVALUATOR AGREE TO THE TERMS AND CONDITIONS ABOVE AND SIGNIFY YOUR ASSENT TO THIS AGREEMENT.  IF YOU ARE ACTING ON BEHALF OF AN ENTITY, THEN YOU REPRESENT THAT YOU HAVE THE AUTHORITY TO ENTER INTO THIS AGREEMENT ON BEHALF OF THAT ENTITY.  IF YOU DO NOT ACCEPT THE TERMS OF THIS AGREEMENT, YOU MAY NOT USE THE SOFTWARE OR SERVICES.
