Either party may provide the other party with confidential or proprietary materials and information (“Confidential Information”). All materials and information provided by the disclosing party and identified at the time of disclosure as “Confidential” or bearing a similar legend, and all other information that the receiving party reasonably should know is the Confidential Information of the disclosing party, will be considered Confidential Information.

Entire Agreement and Conflict
These Terms constitute the entire agreement between you and Selector Software regarding the subject matter of these Terms and supersede and replace any other prior or contemporaneous agreements, or terms and conditions applicable to the subject matter of these Terms. In the event of a conflict between these Terms and another agreement (such as an Order Form) that has been signed by both you and Selector Software, the agreement signed by both parties will control.
Governing Law and Dispute Resolution
These Terms will be exclusively governed by the laws of the State of California, without regard to conflict of law principles. Any controversy or claim arising out of or relating to these Terms, their enforcement, arbitrability or interpretation will be submitted to final and binding arbitration, to be held in Santa Clara County, California, before a single arbitrator who will be a retired judge, in accordance with California Code of Civil Procedure §§ 1280 et seq. The arbitrator will be selected by mutual agreement of the parties or, if the parties cannot agree, then by striking from a list of arbitrators supplied by the American Arbitration Association. The arbitration will be a confidential proceeding, closed to the general public. The arbitrator will issue a written opinion stating the essential findings and conclusions upon which the arbitrator’s award is based. The parties will share equally in payment of the arbitrator’s fees and arbitration expenses and any other costs unique to the arbitration hearing (recognizing that each side bears its own deposition, witness, expert and attorneys’ fees and other expenses to the same extent as if the matter were being heard in court).
ANY ARBITRATION UNDER THESE TERMS WILL ONLY BE ON AN INDIVIDUAL BASIS. CLASS ARBITRATIONS, CLASS ACTIONS, REPRESENTATIVE ACTIONS, AND CONSOLIDATION WITH OTHER ARBITRATIONS ARE NOT PERMITTED.
Waiver, Severability and Assignment
Our failure or delay to enforce any provision of these Terms is not a waiver of our right to do so later. If any provision of these Terms is found unenforceable, the remaining provisions will remain in full effect and an enforceable term will be substituted reflecting our intent as closely as possible. You may not delegate, transfer or assign these Terms or any of your rights or obligations hereunder without our prior written consent, and any such attempt will be of no effect. We may delegate, transfer or assign these Terms or some or all of our rights and obligations hereunder, in our sole discretion, to any of our affiliates or subsidiaries or to any purchaser of any of our business or assets associated with the Services.
You grant us a worldwide, non-exclusive, royalty-free, perpetual, and irrevocable right to use (and full right to sublicense), reproduce, modify, adapt, publish, translate, create derivative works from, distribute, transmit, and display in any form any suggestions, ideas, comments, or questions that you submit to us.
The Services may be subject to export laws and regulations of the United States and other jurisdictions. You represent that you are not named on any U.S. government denied-party list. You will not permit access to or use of the Services in a U.S. embargoed country or in violation of any U.S. export law or regulation.
Neither Party may assign these Terms without the prior consent of the other Party.
Any notices or communications under these Terms to you will be addressed to the electronic address specified in your Selector Software Order Form, as you may update such information from time to time, and will be deemed delivered immediately upon sending in the case of electronic mail to email@example.com
