22. Termination of License
SmrtPhone may terminate Your right to use the Service with or without cause at any time, including when we feel that You are taking advantage of unlimited call redirection offered under a paid plan. We would consider “taking advantage” to be the breach of any point of SmrtPhone’s Fair Use Policy set above. You may also terminate this Agreement at any time directly from Your SmrtPhone account. Termination of this Agreement becomes effective at the end of the ongoing billing cycle.
Your obligation to pay accrued charges and fees shall survive any termination of this Agreement. In the event of any termination of this Agreement, the limitations on Your use of the Service as set forth in the Section Pricing, Billing and Refund Policy shall survive such termination, and You agree to be bound by those terms.
23. Governing Law
Any claim relating to SmrtPhone’s site shall be governed by the laws of the state of Delaware without regard to its conflict of law provisions. Sole and exclusive jurisdiction for any action or proceeding arising out of or related to this agreement shall be in an appropriate state or federal court located in the county of New Castle, state of Delaware and the parties unconditionally waive their respective rights to a jury trial. If for any reason a court of competent jurisdiction finds any provision of this agreement, or a portion thereof, to be unenforceable, that provision shall be enforced to the maximum extent permissible so as to affect the intent of this agreement, and the remainder of this agreement shall continue in full force and effect. A printed version of this agreement shall be admissible in judicial or administrative proceedings.
24. Waiver of Jury Trial
Each of the parties waives its rights to a trial by jury of all claims or causes of action (including counterclaims) related to or arising out of this agreement brought by either party against the other. This waiver will apply to any subsequent amendments of or modifications to this agreement.
25. No Class Actions
All claims between the parties related to this Agreement will be litigated individually and You will not consolidate or seek class treatment for any claim with respect to the Services.
26. Waiver of Compliance of this Agreement
Even if we do not require strict compliance with the Agreement in each instance, You will be obligated to comply with the Agreement. Our failure to enforce, at any time, any of the provisions, conditions or requirements of the Agreement, or the failure to require, at any time, performance by You of any of the provisions of the Agreement, will in no way waive Your obligation to comply with any of the provisions of the Agreement or our ability to enforce each and every such provision as written.
Any and all waivers by SmrtPhone of any provision, condition or requirement of the Agreement will only be effective against SmrtPhone if it is in writing and signed by an authorized officer of SmrtPhone, and any such written waiver will not constitute a waiver of any future obligation to comply with such provision, condition or requirement.
27. Assignment and Delegation
You may not assign or delegate any rights or obligations under the Agreement. Any purported assignment and delegation shall be ineffective. We may freely assign or delegate all rights and obligations under the Agreement, fully or partially without notice to You. We may also substitute, by way of unilateral novation, effective upon notice to You, smrtStudio Global Inc. for any third party that assumes our rights and obligations under this Agreement.
28. No Injunctive Relief
In no event shall You seek or be entitled to rescission, injunctive or other equitable relief, or to enjoin or restrain the operation of the Service, exploitation of any advertising or other materials issued in connection therewith, or exploitation of the Service or any content or other material used or displayed through the Service.
