    1. Term. The EULA shall commence on the date set forth in the applicable Order Form, or if no such date is set forth, the date you accept this EULA or first access the Services, whichever first occurs (the “Effective Date”) and continues as long as any Order Form remains in effect, unless earlier terminated in accordance with this EULA. IF YOU SUBSCRIBE TO THE SERVICES ON A SUBSCRIPTION BASIS, THE SERVICES WILL CONTINUE AT THE END OF EACH SUBSCRIPTION PERIOD IN ACCORDANCE WITH THE PROCEDURE SET FORTH IN SUBSECTION 8(B).
    2. Termination. Either party may terminate this EULA immediately upon written notice to the other party if the other party materially breaches this EULA, and such breach remains uncured more than thirty (30) days after receipt of written notice of such breach.

Each party may change its email address and/or address for receipt of notice by giving notice of such change to the other party.
  7. GENERAL PROVISIONS. This EULA will be governed by the laws of the State of North Carolina, without regard to, or application of, rules or principles regarding conflicts of law.  The state and federal courts located in Wake County, North Carolina shall have sole and exclusive jurisdiction over any disputes arising under this EULA, and you agree to submit to the personal jurisdiction of such courts.  You acknowledge that we will have the right to seek an injunction if necessary to prevent a breach of your obligations hereunder.  If any provision of this EULA is held to be unenforceable, that provision will be disregarded for purposes of the dispute or other circumstance giving rise to such finding, and the remaining provisions will remain in full force.  In the event that we prevail in any proceeding or lawsuit brought by either party in connection with this EULA, we will be entitled to receive its costs, expert witness fees and reasonable attorney’s fees, including costs and fees on appeal.  Our failure to require your performance of any provision in this EULA shall not affect our full right to require such performance at any time thereafter; nor shall our waiver of any breach of any provision of this EULA be taken or held to be a waiver of the provision itself.  You may not assign this EULA or assign or delegate any of your rights or obligations hereunder without our prior written consent.  Any attempted or purported assignment by you shall be null and void.  Your relationship to us is that of an independent contractor, and neither party is an agent or partner of the other. You will not have and will not represent to any third party that you have, any authority to act on behalf of us. This EULA, including all Order Forms, is the complete and exclusive statement of the agreement between NUCLEAUS and you, which supersedes any proposal or prior agreement, oral or written, and any other communications between the parties in relation to the subject matter of this EULA.
