To the extent notices are issued, you agree to accept notices electronically.

12. INJUNCTIVE RELIEF

You acknowledge that any use of the Licensed Materials which is not in accordance with the terms of these Terms of Use or any violation of the restrictions imposed on its use of the Licensed Materials would cause irreparable harm to RPR for which there would be no adequate remedy at law. Accordingly, you agree that in the event of any such violation, RPR will be entitled to immediate injunctive relief (temporary, preliminary or permanent, as the case may be) against you, in addition to such other rights and remedies to which it may be entitled by law. In the event any such injunction is entered, you will pay the reasonable expenses incurred by RPR in obtaining such injunction, including, without limitation, reasonable attorneys’ fees.

13. MISCELLANEOUS

13.1 The provisions of these Terms of Use addressing disclaimers of representations and warranties, limitation of liability, indemnity obligations, intellectual property, injunctive relief, arbitration and governing law will survive the termination of these Terms of Use.

Those who choose to access the Site from other locations do so on their own initiative and are responsible for compliance with applicable local laws.

13.4 If any one or more of the terms or provisions of these Terms of Use is deemed unlawful, void or for any reason unenforceable by any court in any jurisdiction, then any such term(s) or provision(s) will be deemed severable from the remaining terms or provisions in such jurisdiction and will not affect the validity and enforceability of such remaining terms or provisions.
