14.       GENERAL TERMS

14.1 The Terms constitute the entire agreement between you and DivX relating to the subject matters herein, and cancel and supersede any prior versions of the Terms. No modifications made by you to the Terms will be binding on DivX unless in writing and signed by an authorized DivX representative. DivX reserves the right to terminate and/or change these Terms at any time in its sole discretion with or without notice. DivX may notify you of any such changes solely by changing these Terms and making them available on this website. Your continued use of the DivX Property after the posting of any amended Terms shall constitute your agreement to be bound by any such changes. You shall not assign or otherwise transfer the Terms or any right granted hereunder. You also may be subject to additional terms and conditions that may apply when you use DivX or third-party products or services.

14.2 You agree that any material breach of Sections 3, 4, 5, 6 and 10 of the Terms will result in irreparable harm to DivX for which damages would be an inadequate remedy and, therefore, in addition to its rights and remedies otherwise available at law, DivX will be entitled to equitable relief, including both a preliminary and permanent injunction, if such a breach occurs. You waive any requirement for the posting of a bond or other security if DivX seeks such an injunction.

14.3 California law and controlling U.S. federal law govern any action related to the Terms and/or your use of the DivX Property. Choice of law rules of any jurisdiction and the United Nations Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods will not apply to any dispute under the Terms. You and DivX agree to submit to the personal and exclusive jurisdiction of the courts located within the county of Santa Clara, California, U.S.A.

14.4 The DivX Property and products derived or obtained from the DivX Property may be subject to the U.S. export laws, rules and regulations and the export or import laws, rules and regulations of other countries. You agree to comply strictly with all such laws, rules and regulations and, in particular, shall: (a) obtain any export, reexport, or import authorizations required by U.S. or your local laws; (b) not use DivX Property or anything derived from the DivX Property to design, develop or produce missile, chemical/biological, or nuclear weaponry; and (c) not provide DivX Property or anything derived from the DivX Property to prohibited countries and entities identified in the U.S. export regulations.

14.5 Rights and obligations under the Terms which by their nature should survive will remain in full effect after termination or expiration of the Terms.

14.6 Any express waiver or failure to exercise promptly any right under the Terms will not create a continuing waiver or any expectation of non-enforcement. If any provision of the Terms is held invalid by any law or regulation of any government, or by any court or arbitrator, the parties agree that such provision will be replaced with a new provision that accomplishes the original business purpose, and the other provisions of the Terms will remain in full force and effect.

14.7 In the event of a conflict between these Terms and any other agreements between you and DivX, DivX shall determine in its discretion which terms shall govern.

14.9 This English language version of these Terms governs your relationship with DivX and any translations of the Terms into another language shall not be binding on DivX.
