(b) You also acknowledge and agree that monetary damages, alone, would not be adequate compensation for the harm suffered by Go1, if you were to breach any of the above obligations, and that Go1 may obtain an injunction from a court to stop or prevent you from doing so.
12. Term and Termination
(a) This Partner Agreement will remain in force for the Term, unless terminated under the terms of this Partner Agreement.

14. Exclusion of implied terms
The law implies various conditions and warranties that might apply to this Partner Agreement. The parties exclude all of those conditions and warranties to the fullest extent permitted by Law.
Go1's liability for breach of any implied warranty or conditions that cannot be excluded is restricted, at Go1's option, to: (a) the re-supply of the relevant goods or services; (b) the cost of the re-supply of the relevant goods or services; or (c) any amount paid by the User to Go1 in respect of the relevant goods or services.
Nothing in this Partner Agreement is to be interpreted as having the effect of excluding, restricting or modifying any condition or warranty, or right or liability implied by any applicable law if such exclusion, restriction or modification would be void or prohibited under the laws of the Applicable Jurisdiction. The provisions of this Partner Agreement are separate and severable. The invalidity of any clause or provision of this Partner Agreement shall not affect the validity of the reminder of the Partner Agreement.

The terms “commercial item,” “commercial computer software,” “commercial computer software documentation,” and “technical data” are defined in the Federal Acquisition Regulation and the Defense Federal Acquisition Regulation Supplement.
(l) Any Notice may be given by mail or email and sent to a mail address or email address reasonably believed by the sending party to be that of the receiving party.
