This Agreement is governed by the internal substantive laws of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts, without respect to its conflict of laws provisions. You expressly agree: (1) to submit to the exclusive personal jurisdiction of the state and federal courts sitting in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts; and (2) that TSS shall be deemed a passive service that does not give rise to personal jurisdiction over TSS, either specific or general, in jurisdictions other than the Commonwealth of Massachusetts. If any provision of this Agreement is found to be invalid by any court having competent jurisdiction or terminated in accordance with the Termination provision above, the invalidity or termination of such provision shall not affect the validity of the following provisions of this Agreement, which shall remain in full force and effect: "TSS Content; Trademarks; Intellectual Property," "User Content and Publicity," "No Warranties; Limitation of Liability," "Indemnification," "Termination of the Agreement," and "Miscellaneous."

Our failure to act on or enforce any provision of the Agreement shall not be construed as a waiver of that provision or any other provision in this Agreement. No waiver shall be effective against us unless made in writing, and no such waiver shall be construed as a waiver in any other or subsequent instance. Except as expressly agreed by you and us in writing, this Agreement constitutes the entire Agreement between you and us with respect to the subject matter, and supersedes all previous or contemporaneous agreements, whether written or oral, between the parties with respect to the subject matter. The section headings are provided merely for convenience and shall not be given any legal import. This Agreement will inure to the benefit of our successors, assigns, licensees, and sublicensees.
