Miscellaneous. The acceptance of any purchase order placed by you for the Software, if any, is expressly made conditional on your assent to the terms and conditions of this Agreement, and Zemax agrees to furnish the Software only upon these terms and conditions and not those contained in your purchase order. This Agreement contains the entire agreement and understanding between you and Zemax with respect to your purchase and use of the Software. This Agreement may not be modified without the prior written consent of the parties hereto. Nothing contained herein, however, will prevent Zemax from modifying this Agreement with respect to your license or purchase of additional or future products or services from Zemax. If any provision of this Agreement is held to be ineffective, unenforceable, or illegal for any reason, such decision shall not affect the validity or enforceability of such provision under other circumstances, or of the remaining provisions hereof under all circumstances and such provision shall be reformed only to the extent necessary to make it effective, enforceable, and legal under such circumstances. Zemax’s failure to exercise any of its rights or remedies under this Agreement, or otherwise by law, will not be construed as a waiver of Zemax's right to assert or rely upon those rights or remedies in that or any other instance. You may not assign or transfer this Agreement, or any of the rights licensed hereunder, to any third party without the prior written consent of Zemax, and any assignment in violation of the foregoing shall be null and void. Zemax may assign this Agreement to any affiliate or third party, in whole or in part, without your consent. This Agreement shall be governed by and construed under the laws of the State of Washington, without giving effect to any conflict of laws principles that may provide for the application of the law of another jurisdiction.
