We provide these links and referrals only as a convenience to you, and do not review, approve, monitor, endorse, warrant, or make any representations with respect to the links and referrals. Your use of these third party websites and referrals to third party vendors is at your own risk.
6.2 Interpretation; Severability. All headings in this Agreement are included solely for convenience, and shall not affect its interpretation. If it turns out that a particular term in this Agreement is not enforceable, this will not affect any other terms.
6.3 Entire Agreement. This Agreement constitutes the entire agreement between, and supersedes any prior or separate agreements, between the parties, with respect to its subject matter.
6.4 Waivers. If you fail to comply with these terms, and we don’t take action right away, this doesn’t mean that we are giving up any rights or remedies that we may have (such as taking action in the future). In the event we decide, in our sole discretion, to waive a term or condition of this Agreement, such waiver will stand alone and will not imply any other waiver of any other term or condition.
6.5 Notices. All notices and consents sent to us under this Agreement must be written and transmitted by confirmed e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org. Notices shall be deemed received on the date of receipt. Notices to you will be provided through the Sense Platform or as an Update to this Agreement or to the email address you used to register with us.

The parties are independent contractors and nothing in this Agreement shall be construed as creating a partnership, joint venture or agency relationship between the parties, or as authorizing either party to act as agent for the other or to enter into contracts on behalf of the other. These terms do not create any third party beneficiary rights.
6.7 Force Majeure. We will be excused from performance for any period during which, and to the extent that we or our subcontractor(s) are prevented from performing any obligation or service, in whole or in part, as a result of causes beyond our reasonable control, and without fault or negligence.
6.8 Governing Law. The laws of the State of Delaware will apply to any disputes arising out of or relating to this Agreement, without regard to conflict of laws principles, and the United Nations Convention for the International Sale of Goods is hereby excluded.
6.9 Dispute Resolution.
(a) Both parties agree to first attempt to negotiate any dispute (except those expressly excluded below) informally for at least thirty (30) days before initiating any arbitration or court proceeding. Such informal negotiations will begin upon written notice from one party to the other.
(b) If the parties cannot come to a resolution within thirty (30) days of commencement of informal negotiations, either party may choose to have the dispute (except those expressly excluded below) finally and exclusively resolved by binding arbitration in Delaware, USA. This election to arbitrate is final and binding. The Streamlined Arbitration Rules and Procedures (the “Rules”) of JAMS (available on the JAMS website, www.jamsadr.com) will govern the binding arbitration. The Federal Arbitration Act determines whether a dispute is subject to arbitration. Your arbitration fees and your share of arbitrator compensation will be governed by the Rules. The arbitration may be conducted in person, through the submission of documents, by phone, or online. The arbitrator will make a decision in writing, but need not provide a statement of reasons unless requested by a party. The arbitrator must follow applicable law, and any award may be challenged if the arbitrator fails to do so. Except as otherwise provided in this Agreement, both parties may litigate in court to compel arbitration, stay proceedings pending arbitration, or to confirm, modify, vacate, or enter judgment on the award entered by the arbitrator.
However, if you are not located within the United States and if the foregoing venue provision is unenforceable pursuant to the governing law of your jurisdiction, then any dispute arising from this Agreement will be finally settled by arbitration under the Rules of Arbitration of the International Chamber of Commerce then in effect, by one arbitrator appointed in accordance with such Rules, and such arbitration shall be the exclusive method to settle any dispute relating to this Agreement. The arbitration award, as well as any other decision of the arbitrator (including any conservative or interim measures), shall be final, non-appealable, binding and executory. The arbitration shall be conducted in the English language and it shall have its seat in New York, New York, USA. Judgment on the arbitrator’s decision may be entered in, and enforced by, any court having jurisdiction over the party against which an award is entered or over such party’s assets, and the parties hereby irrevocably waive any defense and any objection to the exercise of jurisdiction by such courts, based on international comity, improper venue or forum non conveniens.
(c) YOU UNDERSTAND THAT ABSENT CLAUSE (b) and CLAUSE (c), YOU WOULD HAVE THE RIGHT TO SUE IN COURT AND HAVE A JURY TRIAL, AND SO YOU HEREBY WAIVE THE RIGHT TO A JURY TRIAL.
(d) BOTH PARTIES AGREE THAT ANY ARBITRATION WILL BE LIMITED TO THE DISPUTE BETWEEN SENSE AND YOU INDIVIDUALLY. TO THE FULL EXTENT PERMITTED BY LAW: (A) NO ARBITRATION WILL BE JOINED WITH ANY OTHER; (B) YOU WAIVE ANY RIGHT TO COMMENCE A CLASS ACTION SUIT; AND (C) NO DISPUTE MAY BE BROUGHT IN A REPRESENTATIVE CAPACITY ON BEHALF OF THE GENERAL PUBLIC OR ANY OTHER PERSONS.
6.10 Assignment. You may not sell, lease, assign or otherwise transfer any rights granted under this Agreement. Any attempt to do so shall be void and of no effect without our advance written consent. This Agreement will inure to the benefit of and be binding upon any successors and permitted assigns of the parties.
