12. MISCELLANEOUS.
a. Choice of Law and Forum. This Agreement shall be governed by and construed under the laws of the State of California, U.S.A., without reference to its conflict of laws provisions. The parties consent to the exclusive jurisdiction and venue of the courts located in and/or serving Marin County, California.

b. Waiver and Severability. Failure by either party to exercise any of its rights under, or to enforce any provision of, this Agreement will not be deemed a waiver or forfeiture of such rights or ability to enforce such provision. If any provision of this Agreement is held by a court of competent jurisdiction to be illegal, invalid or unenforceable, that provision will be amended to achieve as nearly as possible the same economic effect of the original provision and the remainder of this Agreement will remain in full force and effect.

c. General Provisions. This Agreement (including the Privacy Policy, any other documents incorporated by reference herein and any modifications hereof) is the complete and exclusive statement of the agreement between Evolve and You regarding the Website and Services and supersedes any other agreement or proposal, oral or written (including information on the Website), and any other communications between the parties in relation to the Services and the subject matter of this Agreement. This Agreement may not be modified except upon mutual written agreement of both parties. Evolve may change the terms of this Agreement at any time by posting modified terms on the Website. Your continued use of the Website after such posting will be deemed acceptance of the changes. This Agreement has been prepared in the English Language and such version shall be controlling in all respects and any non-English version of this Agreement is solely for accommodation purposes. The waiver by either party of a breach of any provision of this Agreement will not operate or be interpreted as a waiver of any other or subsequent breach. Any and all rights and remedies of Evolve and its affiliates upon your breach or other default under this Agreement will be deemed cumulative and not exclusive of any other right or remedy conferred by this Agreement or by law or equity on Evolve and its affiliates, and the exercise of any one remedy will not preclude the exercise of any other. If any provision of this Agreement is deemed unenforceable, such provision will be changed and interpreted to accomplish the objectives of such provision to the greatest extent possible under applicable law and the remaining provisions will continue in full force and effect. You may not assign, delegate or otherwise transfer this Agreement or any of Your rights or obligations under this Agreement without the prior written consent of Evolve. Any such assignment, delegation or transfer in violation of the foregoing will be null and void.
