Further, if you are located outside of the United States, we retain the right to bring proceedings against you for breach of this Agreement in your country of residence or any other appropriate country.

Such unauthorized use or infringement will cause irreparable harm to Playfair, the exact amount of which is difficult or impossible to ascertain, and for which the remedies at law will be inadequate. You consent to the jurisdiction of the state and federal courts in Kansas City, Missouri in connection with such a lawsuit.

- General Terms. If any part of this Agreement is held by a court of competent jurisdiction to be invalid or unenforceable, that part will be enforced to the maximum extent permitted by law, and the remainder of this Agreement will remain fully in force.
