The parties hereby consent to the exclusive jurisdiction and venue in the state courts in St. Louis, Missouri or federal court for the Eastern District of Missouri.
Headings are included for convenience only, and shall not be considered in interpreting these Terms. The Terms do not limit any rights that CPH may have under trade secret, copyright, patent or other laws.
