  8. Term; Termination. This Agreement shall remain in effect only for so long as User is in compliance with the terms and conditions hereof. This Agreement and the License will terminate automatically without notice from JHU if User fails to comply with or breaches any term(s) and condition(s) of this Agreement. Upon termination of this Agreement, User shall cease all access to and use of the Application and destroy all copies, full or partial, of the Application. JHU reserves the right to modify, suspend, discontinue or disable access to the Application (or any part or content thereof), and may impose limits on the use of or access to certain features or portions of the Application, at any time with or without notice to User, and JHU will not be liable to User or to any third-party should it exercise such rights.

  9. Agreement. This Agreement constitutes the entire agreement between User and JHU regarding the subject matter hereof and supersedes all previous oral or written communications, proposals, agreements, and representations, if any, relating to the subject matter hereof. JHU reserves the right to modify this Agreement and to impose new or additional terms or conditions on the access, viewing, and use of the Application at any time and in its sole discretion. Such modifications and additional terms and conditions will be effective immediately and incorporated into this Agreement. The continued use of the Application by or on behalf of User will be deemed acceptance thereof. The failure of any party to require the performance of any term or obligation of this Agreement, or the waiver by any party of any breach of this Agreement, will not act as a bar to subsequent enforcement of such term or obligation or be deemed a waiver of any subsequent breach. The provisions of this Agreement will be considered severable, so that the invalidity or unenforceability of any provisions will not affect the validity or enforceability of the remaining provisions; provided that no such severability will be effective if it materially changes the agreement contained herein. Neither this Agreement nor any rights or obligations of User hereunder may be assigned or delegated by User in whole or in part without the prior written approval of JHU. Any assignment or delegation in derogation of the foregoing shall be null and void. The headings contained in this Agreement are for reference purposes only and will not affect in any way the meaning and interpretation of this Agreement. All terms and conditions that by their nature should survive the termination or expiration of this Agreement, including, without limitation, Sections 3, 4, 5 and 6 hereof, will survive. User hereby agrees that User will not use or otherwise export the Application in violation or prohibition of United States or any other applicable laws, statutes, and regulations.

The validity, construction and enforcement of this Agreement, and the use of the Application, will be determined in accordance with the laws of the State of Maryland, without reference to its conflicts of laws principles. User and JHU hereby irrevocably and unconditionally: (i) consent to submit to the exclusive jurisdiction of the courts of the State of Maryland for any proceeding arising in connection with this Agreement and each such party agrees not to commence any such proceeding except in such courts, and (ii) waive any objection to the laying of venue of any such proceeding in the courts of the State of Maryland. EACH OF JHU AND USER, KNOWINGLY AND AFTER CONSULTATION WITH COUNSEL, FOR ITSELF, ITS SUCCESSORS, AND ASSIGNS, WAIVES ALL RIGHT TO TRIAL BY JURY OF ANY CLAIM ARISING WITH RESPECT TO THIS AGREEMENT OR ANY MATTER RELATED IN ANY WAY THERETO.
