Subscriber hereby expressly consents to the personal jurisdiction and venue in the state and federal courts for the county in which Grid.AI’s principal place of business is located for any lawsuit filed there against Subscriber by Grid.AI arising from or related to this Agreement.

Subscriber shall not assign, subcontract, delegate, or otherwise transfer this Agreement, or its rights and obligations herein, without obtaining the prior written consent of Grid.AI, and any attempted assignment, subcontract, delegation, or transfer in violation of the foregoing will be null and void; provided, however, that either party may assign this Agreement in connection with a merger, acquisition, reorganization or sale of all or substantially all of its assets, or other operation of law, without any consent of the other party. The terms of this Agreement shall be binding upon the parties and their respective successors and permitted assigns. Any delay in the performance of any duties or obligations of either party (except the payment of amounts owed) will not be considered a breach of this Agreement if such delay is caused by a labor dispute, shortage of materials, fire, earthquake, flood, or any other event beyond the control of such party, provided that such party uses reasonable efforts, under the circumstances, to notify the other party of the cause of such delay and to resume performance as soon as possible.
