7.3 The Licensee agrees that, because of the unique nature of the Software and Blue Ripple's proprietary rights therein, a demonstrated breach of this Licence Agreement by the Licensee would irreparably harm Blue Ripple and monetary damages would be inadequate compensation.

7.4 If any provision of this Licence Agreement or the Software thereof is declared void, illegal, or unenforceable, the remainder of this Licence Agreement will be valid and enforceable to the extent permitted by applicable law.

7.5 Any failure by any party to this Licence Agreement to enforce at any time any term or condition under this Licence Agreement will not be considered a waiver of that party's right thereafter to enforce each and every term and condition of this Licence Agreement.

7.7 Any notice, request, instruction or other document to be given hereunder shall be delivered or sent by first class post or by email (in all cases to be confirmed by letter posted within 12 hours) to the address of the other set out or referred to in this Agreement (or such other address as may have been notified) and any such notice or other document shall be deemed to have been served and deemed to have been received (if delivered) at the time of delivery (if sent by post) upon the expiration of 48 hours after posting and (if sent by email) upon the expiration of 12 hours after dispatch.

7.8 Neither party shall be liable for any breach of this Agreement resulting from causes beyond its reasonable control including but not limited to fires, strikes (of its own or other employees) insurrection or riots, wrecks or delays in transportation, inability to obtain supplies and raw materials requirements or regulations of any civil or military authority (a "Force Majeure Event"). Each party agrees to give notice forthwith to the other upon becoming aware of a Force Majeure Event, such notice to contain details of the circumstances giving rise to the Force Majeure Event. If a default due to a Force Majeure Event shall continue for more than 13 weeks, then the party not in default shall be entitled to terminate this Agreement. Neither party shall have any liability to the other in respect of such termination as a result of a Force Majeure Event.

7.9 This Licence Agreement constitutes the entire agreement and understanding between the parties with respect to the subject matter hereof and supersedes all prior agreements, oral and written, made with respect to the subject matter hereof.

7.10 This Licence Agreement is governed by and construed in accordance with English law. The Courts of England shall have exclusive jurisdiction over any disputes arising out of this Licence Agreement.
