The parties hereby submit to the exclusive jurisdiction of, and waive any venue objections against the state and federal courts located in the Borough of Manhattan, New York in any dispute arising under or in connection with this Agreement.
  14. MISCELLANIOUS. This Agreement constitutes the entire agreement between the parties and supersedes all preceding agreements or communications with respect to the subject matter hereof. Except as explicitly set forth herein, this Agreement shall not be modified except by a written agreement between the parties. The failure of either party to enforce strict performance by the other party of any provision of this Agreement or to exercise any right hereunder shall not be construed as a waiver of that party’s right. In the event that any provision of this Agreement is held invalid by a court with jurisdiction over the parties, such provision shall be deemed to be restated to reflect as nearly as possible the original intentions of the parties in accordance with applicable law, and the remainder of this Agreement shall remain in full force and effect. The rights and obligations of each party under this Agreement shall not be assigned without the prior written approval of the other party, which approval shall not be unreasonably withheld; provided, however, that either party may assign this Agreement without such consent to a corporate affiliate or in connection with a change of control or sale of substantially all of its assets, subject to the assigning party providing prior written notice of such assignment; and provided further that PubMatic may assign its rights under this Agreement, in part, to a PubMatic publisher in PubMatic’s sole discretion upon such publisher’s reasonable request. Any attempted assignment without consent where consent is required shall be void. Subject to the foregoing, each party’s rights and obligations shall inure to the benefit of their respective successors and permitted assigns. Except as otherwise expressly provided in this Agreement, there shall be no third party beneficiaries to the Agreement (including without limitation any Buyer or other advertiser, agency or client of Demand Partner). This Agreement may be executed in counterparts, each of which shall be deemed to be an original, but all of which, taken together, shall constitute one and the same agreement. This Agreement may be executed via a recognized electronic signature service (e.g., EchoSign or DocuSign) or delivered by facsimile transmission, or may be signed, scanned and emailed, and any such signatures shall be treated as original signatures for all applicable purposes. Any notices given under this Agreement shall be deemed to be effectively given (i) when delivered personally, (ii) five (5) days after being placed in the mail, postage prepaid, certified or registered mail, or (iv) upon confirmation of delivery after being sent via express courier, mail or email, in each case, to the recipient’s address specified in this section or such other address as specified by the parties in writing, with a copy sent to the attention of General Counsel for notices to PubMatic.
