For example, we may need to exercise such rights in instances of your breach of this Agreement, court order, when we believe there to have been misconduct or conduct which may create potential liability for TSL.

- General Legal Terms.
The Agreement controls the relationship between you and TSL and constitutes the entire agreement between such parties with respect to the subject matter hereof. There are no other third-party beneficiaries under the Agreement. TSL will not be treated as having waived any rights by not exercising (or delaying the exercise of) any rights under the Agreement. A waiver will be effective only if TSL expressly states in writing signed by an authorized representative that TSL is waiving a specified term of the Agreement. If it turns out that a particular provision of the Agreement is found to be not enforceable, that provision will be modified by the court of competent jurisdiction to the extent necessary to create an enforceable provision that reflects the parties' intention as closely as possible. If that is not possible, it will be deemed deleted and the rest of the Agreement will continue in force unaffected. You may grant approvals, permissions and consents to TSL by email, but any modifications requested by you to the Agreement must be made in writing (not including email) and signed by both TSL and your authorized representative who has the authority to bind you (and only if TSL agrees to such modification). All notices to TSL must be in the English language, in writing, and sent to our corporate headquarters address listed on our website via first class or air mail or overnight courier, and are deemed given upon receipt. You may not assign or transfer these Embed Terms or your rights under these Embed Terms, in whole or in part, by operation of law or otherwise, without our prior written consent. We may assign these Embed Terms at any time without consent. You are not TSL’s legal partner or agent; the parties are independent contractors. The laws of California, U.S.A., excluding California’s conflict of laws rules, will apply to any disputes arising out of or relating to the Agreement or the TSL Platform. Subject to Section  (Injunctive Relief), all claims arising out of or relating to the Agreement or the TSL Platform will be litigated exclusively in the federal or state courts of Los Angeles County, California, U.S.A., and you and TSL consent to personal jurisdiction in those courts.
