14. Survival of Terms After Agreement Ends. Notwithstanding any other provisions of this Terms of Service, or any general legal principles to the contrary, any provision of this Terms of Service that imposes or contemplates continuing obligations on a party will survive the expiration or termination of this Terms of Service.


15. General. If any of these conditions are deemed invalid, void, or for any reason unenforceable, the parties agree that the court should endeavor to give effect to the parties’ intentions as reflected in the provision, and the unenforceable condition shall be deemed severable and shall not affect the validity and enforceability of any remaining condition.

You and Interwrite agree to submit to the personal jurisdiction of the federal and state courts located in the State of New Hampshire with respect to any legal proceedings that may arise in connection with this Terms of Service.
