This Agreement is the complete and exclusive statement of the parties’ agreement and supersedes all proposals or prior agreements, oral or written, and all other communications between the parties relating to the subject matter hereof. If this Agreement conflicts with any of the terms or conditions of any Order Form, then this Agreement shall take precedence. Any purchase orders or other documents issued by You shall be deemed to be for your convenience only and, notwithstanding acceptance of such orders by Starburst, shall in no way change, override, or supplement this Agreement.

  • 8.2 Waiver. Any waiver or modification of the provisions of this Agreement will be effective only if in writing and signed by the party against whom it is to be enforced. If any provision of this Agreement is held invalid, illegal or unenforceable, the validity, legality and enforceability of the remaining provisions shall not in any way be affected or impaired thereby. A waiver of any provision, breach or default by either party or a party’s delay exercising its rights shall not constitute a waiver of any other provision, breach or default.

  • 8.3 Independent Contractor. The relationship between Starburst and You is that of independent contractors.  At no time shall either party make any commitments or incur any charges or expenses for or in the name of the other party, or be considered the agent, partner, joint venture, employer or employee of the other party.

All notices or other communications required to be given hereunder shall be in writing and delivered either by U.S. mail, certified, return receipt requested, postage prepaid; by overnight courier; or as otherwise requested by the receiving party, to Starburst Data, Inc., 177 Huntington Ave Ste 1703, PMB 82089,

  • Starburst is committed to conducting its business ethically and in full compliance with all applicable U.S. laws and regulations, including (i) the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (“FCPA”), the U.K. Bribery Act 2010 (“UKBA”), and other applicable anticorruption laws (collectively, the “AntiCorruption Laws”); (ii) economic and trade sanctions administered by the U.S. Department of the Treasury’s Office of Foreign Assets Control and U.S. Department of State (the “U.S. Sanctions”); and (ii) export controls administered by the U.S. Department of Commerce’s Bureau of Industry and Security, promulgated under the Export Administration Regulations (“EAR”) (the “U.S. Export Controls”) (together collectively, the “International Trade Laws”).

    Starburst reserves the right to utilize monitoring tools and technical controls to identify any Galaxy user or account access from areas considered by the U.S. Department of the Treasury’s Office of Foreign Assets Control (“OFAC”) and the U.S. Department of State to be sanctioned or embargoed jurisdictions. These security controls include but are not limited to geo IP blocking.

    If Starburst identifies access, authentication, transactions or payment originating from a Sanctioned Person or Sanctioned Jurisdiction, as per the International Trade Administration, located at https://www.trade.gov/, it will be immediately terminated, in order to maintain compliance with International Trade Laws. 

    By clicking on the “ACCEPT” button, and/or purchasing, accessing, downloading or using the Service, You are stating that You consent to your account or access being terminated (even if utilizing a free or trial version of the product) if it is determined access originates from a Sanctioned Person or Sanctioned Jurisdiction.
