These limits shall apply notwithstanding failure of essential purpose of any limited remedy and the amount paid reflects this allocation of risk.
Product, Information, and documentation are deemed “commercial computer software” and “commercial computer software documentation” pursuant to the U.S. Department of Federal Acquisition Regulation §227.7202 and 48 U.S.C.F.R. §12.212, as applicable.

Licensee hereby acknowledges and agrees that any breach of this Agreement by them may result in damage to LABOR TITAN that may not be measurable and would not adequately be compensated by monetary damages. Therefore, in the event of any breach, or threatened breach, of any provision of this Agreement by Licensee, its agents, employees, and/or affiliates, LABOR TITAN shall be entitled to seek specific performance, preliminary and permanent injunctive and other appropriate equitable relief without posting any bond and without proving that monetary damages would be an inadequate remedy. The equitable remedies contemplated hereunder shall not be exclusive but shall be in addition to any and all other remedies by which LABOR TITAN may be entitled.

This is the entire agreement between the parties relating to the subject matter hereof and supersedes any and all prior or contemporaneous representations, understandings, commitments, or agreements by a party or between the parties, whether written (including e-mail and text) or oral. No waiver or modification of this Agreement shall be valid unless memorialized in writing signed by both parties.

LABOR TITAN reserves the right to withhold Product, Information, goods and/or services at any time with or without notice in the event Licensee’s account is found not to be in good standing. The headings contained in this Agreement are for informational and convenience of reference purposes only, are not a part of the Agreement, and shall not affect its interpretation. In the event that any provision hereof or any obligation hereunder is found invalid or unenforceable pursuant to judicial or other tribunal, decree, or decision, any such invalidity or unenforceability shall be deemed and construed to extend only to the maximum permitted by law, and the remainder of this Agreement shall remain valid and enforceable according to its terms. The language of all parts of this Agreement shall, in all cases, be construed according to its fair meaning and not strictly for or against any of the parties, regardless of which party drafted this Agreement. This Agreement may be executed by manual, facsimile, electronic, and/or email signatures in accordance with the Federal Electronic Signatures in Global and National Commerce Act (15 U.S.C. 96 et seq.) and Illinois’ Electronic Commerce Security Act (5 ILCS 175/1 et seq.) and in counterparts, each of which shall be deemed an original and all which together shall constitute one and the same instrument. Any and all ancillary agreements between the parties are incorporated in this Agreement by this reference. Except as otherwise provided in this Agreement and except as otherwise provided in any Ancillary Agreement by specific reference to the applicable provision of this Agreement, if any provision contained in this Agreement is in conflict with, or inconsistent with, any provision in any Ancillary Agreement, the provision contained in this Agreement shall govern and control.
10b. No Party shall be deemed in default of this Agreement or any Ancillary Agreement, unless otherwise expressly provided therein, for any delay or failure to fulfill any obligation (other than a payment obligation) hereunder or thereunder so long as and to the extent to which any delay or failure in the fulfillment of such obligation is prevented, frustrated, hindered or delayed as a consequence of circumstances of Force Majeure. (Force Majeure shall include, but not be limited to: acts of God, acts of war or terrorism, healthcare pandemic, shortage of supply, power failures, or mechanical difficulties with information storage or retrieval systems, labor difficulties or civil unrest.) In the event of any such excused delay, the time for performance of such obligations (other than a payment obligation) shall be extended for a period equal to the time lost by reason of the delay. A Party claiming the benefit of this provision shall, as soon as reasonably practicable after the occurrence of any such event, (a) provide written notice to the other Party of the nature and extent of any such Force Majeure condition; and (b) use commercially reasonable efforts to remove any such causes and resume performance under this Agreement and the Ancillary Agreements, as applicable, as soon as reasonably practicable.
