In the event such protection is not obtained, you shall disclose the Confidential Information only to the extent necessary to comply with the applicable legal requirements.

You will indemnify and hold Immedia harmless from any and all claims, losses, liabilities, damages, fines, penalties, costs and expenses (including attorney’s fees) arising from or relating to any breach by you of your obligations under this section.
Governing Law; Venue.
The courts in some countries will not apply U.S. law to some types of disputes. If you reside in one of those countries, then where U.S. law is excluded from applying, your country’s laws will apply to such disputes related to these terms. Otherwise, you agree that this EULA, and any claim, dispute, action, cause of action, issue, or request for relief arising out of or relating to this EULA, will be governed by the laws of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts, U.S.A., without regard to conflicts of laws principles. You also agree that the United Nations Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods shall not apply. You agree that regardless of any statute or law to the contrary, any cause of action against us arising out of or related to the Site or the Services must commence within one (1) year after the cause of action accrues or such cause of action shall be permanently barred. Any action or proceeding relating to this EULA must be brought in a federal or state court located in Boston, Massachusetts and each party irrevocably submits to the jurisdiction and venue of any such court in any such claim or dispute, except that Immedia may seek injunctive relief in any court having jurisdiction to protect its intellectual property or Confidential Information.
Neither the rights nor the obligations arising under this EULA are assignable by you, and any such attempted assignment shall be void and without effect.
Any notice to you may be provided by email to the address that you registered with Immedia.
