15. GOVERNING LAW
The laws of California govern this Agreement and the parties irrevocably and unconditionally submit to the non-exclusive jurisdiction of the courts of that jurisdiction.
A single or partial exercise of a right does not preclude a further exercise of that right or the exercise of another right. Failure by a party to exercise a right or delay in exercising that right does not prevent its exercise or operate as a waiver. A waiver is only effective in the specific instance and for the specific purpose for which it is given.
19. CUMULATIVE RIGHTS
The rights and remedies of a party under these Terms and Conditions do not exclude any other right or remedy provided by law.
