Confidential Information so disclosed shall continue to be deemed Confidential Information.

Neither Customer nor Customer’s employees, consultants, contractors, or agents are agents, employees, partners or joint ventures of PackageX, nor do they have any authority to bind PackageX by contract or otherwise to any obligation. Further, they shall not represent the relationship to the contrary, either expressly, implicitly, by appearance or otherwise.
14.5 Non-Exclusive.

14.6 Governing Law and Jurisdiction. This Agreement shall be construed in accordance with the laws of the State of New York excluding its conflict of law provisions. To the extent not prohibited by law, each of the Parties hereby irrevocably waives any and all right to trial by jury in any legal proceeding arising out of or related to this Agreement.

14.8 Severability. It is intended that this Agreement shall not violate any applicable law and the unenforceability or invalidity of any provision (other than the provisions obligating Customer to make payments to PackageX) shall not affect the force and validity of the remaining provisions and such provisions determined to be invalid shall be deemed severed from this Agreement and, to the extent possible, be replaced with terms which as closely as possible approximate the interest and economic intent of such invalid provisions.
