  1. INDEMNIFICATION.

Licensee acknowledges that a breach, actual or threatened, of these Terms & Conditions may cause irreparable harm to GSC, the amount of which may be extremely difficult to estimate, thus making any remedy at law inadequate. GSC will therefore be entitled to obtain immediate injunctive relief and any other relief GSC deems appropriate from a court of  competent  jurisdiction  without  having  to  post  a  bond  or  other  security  or  prove irreparable harm.  This right will be in addition to any other remedy available to GSC in law or equity.

  1. MISCELLANEOUS.

Failure by Company to insist on strict performance of any of the terms and conditions of these Terms & Conditions will not operate as a waiver by GSC of that or any subsequent default  or failure  of  performance.   If  any provision  (or  part  thereof)  contained  in these Terms & Conditions is determined to be void, invalid, or otherwise unenforceable by a court of competent jurisdiction or on account of a conflict with an applicable government regulation, such determination shall not affect the remaining provisions (or parts thereof) contained  herein  and  the  illegal,  invalid,  or  unenforceable  clause  shall  be  modified  in compliance with applicable law in a manner that most closely matches the intent of the original  language.   No  joint  venture,  partnership,  employment,  or  agency  relationship exists between you and GSC as a result of these Terms & Conditions or your use of the API.  Headings herein are for convenience only.  These Terms & Conditions represent the entire  agreement  between  you  and  GSC  with  respect  to  your  use  of  the  API,  and  it supersedes  all  prior  or  contemporaneous  communications  and  proposals,  whether electronic, oral, or written between you and GSC with respect to your use of the API.
