Any notice, report, approval or consent required or permitted hereunder shall be in writing. The waiver by Yubico of a breach of this Agreement or any right hereunder shall not constitute a waiver of any subsequent breach of this Agreement; nor shall any delay by Yubico to exercise any right under this Agreement operate as a waiver of any such right. If any provision of this Agreement shall be adjudged by any court of competent jurisdiction to be unenforceable or invalid, that provision shall be limited or eliminated to the minimum extent necessary so that this Agreement shall otherwise remain in full force and effect and enforceable. This Agreement shall be deemed to have been made in, and shall be construed pursuant to the laws of Sweden without regard to conflicts of laws provisions thereof. Both parties hereby consent to the exclusive jurisdiction of the Swedish Court system with the City Court of Stockholm as first instance. The parties agree that a material breach of this Agreement adversely affecting Yubico’s proprietary rights in the Yubico Product would cause irreparable injury to Yubico for which monetary damages would not be an adequate remedy and that Yubico shall be entitled to equitable relief in addition to any remedies it may have hereunder or by law.
