Other terms of this Agreement.

This Agreement is entered-into and performed in the State of North Dakota, United States of America, and is governed by and will be construed in all respects under the laws of North Dakota, exclusive of its choice of law or conflict of laws provisions. In any claim or action directly or indirectly arising under this Agreement or related to the Vogel Law Firm site, each party irrevocably submits to the exclusive personal jurisdiction of the North Dakota State District Court sitting in Cass County, North Dakota, or if such court does not have subject-matter jurisdiction, then each party irrevocably submits to the exclusive personal jurisdiction of the United States Court for the District of North Dakota, Southeastern Division, and whichever of those two courts has jurisdiction, each party waives any jurisdictional, venue, or inconvenient forum objections to such court. If any of the provisions of this Agreement are held by a court or other tribunal of competent jurisdiction not to be enforceable, then such provisions will be limited or eliminated to the minimum extent necessary so that this Agreement will otherwise remain in full force and effect. This Agreement constitutes the entire agreement between the parties pertaining to its subject matter.
