This Agreement completely and exclusively states the entire agreement of the parties regarding the subject matter herein, and it supersedes, and its terms govern, all prior proposals, agreements, or other communications between the parties, oral or written, regarding such subject matter. This Agreement may be modified by Formbird from time to time, and any such modifications will be effective upon the “Posted Date” set forth at the top of the modified Agreement. If any provision hereof is held unenforceable, this Agreement will continue without said provision and be interpreted to reflect the original intent of the parties. This Agreement and any non-contractual obligation arising out of or in connection with it, is governed exclusively by Australian law in the state of Victoria. This Agreement shall not be governed by the 1980 UN Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods.
