11. INJUNCTIVE RELIEF
11.1. Licensee acknowledges that any use of the Licensed Content by Licensee which is not in accordance with the terms of this Agreement or any violation of the restrictions imposed on its use of the Licensed Content would cause irreparable harm to Datasheer for which there would be no adequate remedy at law. Accordingly, Licensee agrees that in the event of any such violation, Datasheer shall be entitled to immediate injunctive relief (temporary, preliminary or permanent, as the case maybe) against Licensee, its officers and employees, in addition to such other rights and remedies to which it may be entitled by law.
12.1. If any provision of this Agreement is held by a court of competent jurisdiction to be contrary to law, such provision shall be changed and interpreted so as to best accomplish the objectives of the original provision to the fullest extent allowed by law and the remaining provisions of this Agreement shall remain in full force and effect.
12.2. This Agreement and any amendments may be executed in one or more counterparts, each of which shall be deemed an original, but all of which together shall constitute one agreement.
12.3. Nothing in this Agreement shall be construed to constitute or appoint either party as the agent or representative of the other party for any purpose whatsoever, or to grant to either party any right or authority to assume or create any obligation or responsibility, express or implied, for or on behalf of or in the name of the other party, or to bind the other party in any way or manner whatsoever.
12.4. Neither party shall be liable to the other party for any loss or damage attributable to, and neither party shall be deemed to be in default hereunder as a result of, any failure or delay in performance caused by force majeure. For purposes of this Agreement, the term "force majeure" shall include strike, lockout, earthquake, hurricane, flood, fire or other acts of God, nature, war, rebellion, civil disorders, acts of civil or military authorities (including the denial or cancellation of any export or other necessary license), unavailability of materials, carriers or communications facilities, and any other causes beyond the reasonable control of the party whose performance is affected. The party affected by an event constituting “force majeure” shall use all reasonable efforts to minimize the consequences of the same. Where force majeure remains in effect for more than three months, or if at the beginning of a force majeure condition it is clear that it will last longer than three months, either party may terminate this Agreement by giving notice to the other at least three months prior to such termination. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary herein, the provisions of this Section 15.4 shall not apply to any failure or delay in timely payment of any amounts due pursuant to this Agreement.
12.5. Neither this Agreement nor any interest herein may be assigned by the Licensee without the prior written approval of the Licensor, which approval may be withheld in Licensor’s sole discretion. Notwithstanding the foregoing, Licensee may assign this Agreement in its entirety to any purchaser of all or substantially all of Licensee’s assets, or to any subsidiary or legal successor, without the prior approval of the other party.
