Any action or proceeding relating to this EULA must be brought in a federal or state court located in Santa Clara County, California and each party irrevocably submits to the jurisdiction and venue of any such court in any such action or proceeding, except that Nest Labs may seek injunctive relief in any court having jurisdiction to protect its intellectual property or Confidential Information.

All waivers by Nest Labs will be effective only if in writing. Any waiver or failure by Nest Labs to enforce any provision of this EULA on one occasion will not be deemed a waiver of any other provision or of such provision on any other occasion. You acknowledge that the Product Software contains valuable trade secrets and proprietary information of Nest Labs, that any actual or threatened breach of Section 2 (Restrictions) of this EULA will constitute immediate, irreparable harm to Nest Labs for which monetary damages would be an inadequate remedy, and that injunctive relief is an appropriate remedy for such breach.
