The laws and regulations of the province of British Columbia and the federal laws applicable therein shall govern this Agreement in all respects, without giving effect to conflicts of laws principles, and the courts of the province of British Columbia shall have jurisdiction to hear any question concerning such use. Felix shall not be liable or responsible to Merchant, nor be deemed to have defaulted under or breached this Agreement, for any failure or delay in fulfilling or performing any Term of this Agreement, when and to the extent the failure or delay is caused by or results from acts beyond Felix's reasonable control, including a Force Majeure Event.
Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in this Agreement, Merchant permits Felix to exchange information about Merchant with other financial institutions, payment networks, and any other persons for the purpose of providing the services contemplated in the Agreement.
Merchant may not assign, transfer, or sell any of its rights, or delegate any of its responsibilities under this Agreement without Felix's prior written consent, including, without limitation by merger or change of control as set forth below. All assignments of Merchant's rights are prohibited by this Section, whether they are voluntary or involuntary, by merger, consolidation, dissolution, operation of law, or any other manner. For purposes of this Section, a "change of control" is deemed an assignment of rights and a "merger" refers to any merger in which Merchant participates, regardless of whether it is the surviving or disappearing corporation. Merchant may not delegate any performance under this Agreement. Any purported assignment of rights or delegation of performance in violation of this Section is void.
Those provisions that should survive termination of this Agreement will survive, including but not limited to payment obligations, Merchant's indemnification obligations, and all disclaimers and limitations of liability.
