22.5. Waiver. Any provision or condition of this Term may be waived at any time, in writing, by ReciProty. Waiver of any breach of any provision will not be a waiver of any succeeding breach of the provision or a waiver of the provision itself or any other provision.
22.6. Governing Law; Jurisdiction. THESE TERMS ARE GOVERNED BY AND MUST BE CONSTRUED UNDER THE LAWS OF THE STATE OF OREGON, WITHOUT REGARD TO CONFLICT OR CHOICE OF LAW PRINCIPLES. EXCEPT AS OTHERWISE EXPRESSLY REQUIRED BY THESE TERMS, YOU AGREE TO SUBMIT TO THE PERSONAL JURISDICTION OF THE COURTS LOCATED IN THE COUNTY OF MULTNOMAH, IN THE STATE OF OREGON FOR ALL OF YOUR CLAIMS ARISING FROM OR RELATING TO THESE TERMS, USE OF THE SITE, AND ANY OTHER DISPUTE WITH RECIPROTY.
22.7. Attorney Fees. In any arbitration, suit, or action arising out of the Site or the subject matter of these Terms, the party prevailing will be entitled to recover, in addition to costs, reasonable attorney fees incurred, including any attorney fees on appeal.
22.8. Injunctive and Other Equitable Relief. You agree that damages will be an inadequate remedy in the event you breach these Terms and that any such breach will cause ReciProty great and irreparable injury and damage. Therefore, in addition to damages, ReciProty will be entitled to a restraining order, temporary and permanent injunctive relief, specific performance, and other appropriate equitable relief, without showing or proving that any monetary damage has been sustained.
22.9. Severability. Wherever possible, each provision of these Terms will be interpreted in a manner that will render it effective and valid under applicable law. If any provision of these Terms is prohibited by or becomes invalid under applicable law, that provision will be ineffective only to the extent of the prohibition or invalidity without invalidating the remainder of the provision or the remaining provisions of these Terms. The parties expressly intend and desire that any court holding any provision of these Terms to be invalid or unenforceable as written substitute a provision that is enforceable and that most fully accomplishes the purpose of the invalid or unenforceable provision.
22.10 Entire Agreement. These Terms (including the documents expressly referred to herein) constitute the entire agreement and understanding of yourself and ReciProty with respect to the subject matter of these Terms and supersede all prior understandings and agreements, whether written or oral, with respect to such subject matter.
