In addition to the other provisions in this Agreement, the following additional provisions in this subsection apply to the Beta Software.
The license granted by Bergen Co. under this Agreement with respect to the Beta Software will automatically terminate upon the release of a generally commercially available version of the applicable Beta Software or will terminate as otherwise set forth in this Agreement or as determined by Bergen Co.

You agree to take all practicable measures to protect the secrecy of Beta Confidential Information and avoid disclosure or use of Beta Confidential Information other than expressly authorized herein, which measures will take the form of the highest degree of care that a reasonable person would apply to protect his, her, or its own information of a similar nature and importance. You agree promptly to notify Bergen Co. in writing of any misuse or misappropriation of Beta Confidential Information that may come to your attention. All copies of electronic information and data, or tangible items including documents and magnetic media, containing or embodying Beta Confidential Information will be permanently destroyed upon the expiration or termination of the Beta Period or as otherwise requested by Bergen Co..

The Service is controlled and operated from its facilities in the United States. Bergen Co. makes no representations that the Service is appropriate or available for use in other locations. Those who access or use the Service from other jurisdictions do so at their own volition and are entirely responsible for compliance with all applicable United States and local laws and regulations, including but not limited to export and import regulations. You may not use the Service if you are a resident of a country embargoed by the United States, or are a foreign person or entity blocked or denied by the United States government. Unless otherwise explicitly stated, all materials found on the Service are solely directed to individuals, companies, or other entities located in the United States.
ARBITRATION AND GOVERNING LAW:
For any dispute you have with Bergen Co., you agree to first contact us at email@example.com and attempt to resolve the dispute with us informally. In the unlikely event that Bergen Co. has not been able to resolve a dispute it has with you after attempting to do so informally, we each agree to resolve any claim, dispute, or controversy (excluding claims for injunctive or other equitable relief) arising out of or in connection with or relating to these Terms, or the breach or alleged breach thereof (collectively, “Claims”), by binding arbitration by the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”) under the Commercial Arbitration Rules and Supplementary Procedures for Consumer Related Disputes then in effect for the AAA, except as provided herein. Unless you and Bergen Co. agree otherwise, the arbitration will be conducted in the county where you reside. Each party will be responsible for paying any AAA filing, administrative and arbitrator fees in accordance with AAA rules. The award rendered by the arbitrator will include costs of arbitration, reasonable attorneys’ fees and reasonable costs for expert and other witnesses, and any judgment on the award rendered by the arbitrator may be entered in any court of competent jurisdiction. Nothing in this Section will prevent either party from seeking injunctive or other equitable relief from the courts for matters related to data security, intellectual property or unauthorized access to the Service. ALL CLAIMS MUST BE BROUGHT IN THE PARTIES’ INDIVIDUAL CAPACITY, AND NOT AS A PLAINTIFF OR CLASS MEMBER IN ANY PURPORTED CLASS OR REPRESENTATIVE PROCEEDING, AND, UNLESS WE AGREE OTHERWISE, THE ARBITRATOR MAY NOT CONSOLIDATE MORE THAN ONE PERSON’S CLAIMS. YOU AGREE THAT, BY ENTERING INTO THESE TERMS, YOU AND Bergen Co. ARE EACH WAIVING THE RIGHT TO A TRIAL BY JURY OR TO PARTICIPATE IN A CLASS ACTION.
B. Governing Law
You agree that: (i) the Service will be deemed solely based in California; and (ii) the Service will be deemed a passive host that does not give rise to personal jurisdiction over Bergen Co., either specific or general, in jurisdictions other than California. These Terms will be governed by the internal substantive laws of the State of California, without respect to its conflict of laws principles. The application of the United Nations Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods is expressly excluded. We each agree to submit to the personal jurisdiction of a state court located in Alameda County, California or the United States District Court for the Northern District of California, for any actions for which either party retains the right to seek injunctive or other equitable relief, as further described in the Arbitration provision above.
This Agreement, and any rights and licenses granted hereunder, may not be transferred or assigned by you, but may be assigned by Bergen Co. without restriction. Any attempted transfer or assignment in violation hereof will be null and void.
B. Notification Procedures and Changes to the Agreement
C. Entire Agreement/Severability
This Agreement, together with any amendments and any additional agreements you may enter into with Bergen Co. in connection with the Service, will constitute the entire agreement between you and Bergen Co. concerning the Service. If any provision of this Agreement is deemed invalid by a court of competent jurisdiction, the invalidity of such provision will not affect the validity of the remaining provisions of this Agreement, which will remain in full force and effect. Headings are included for convenience only and will not be considered in interpreting this Agreement. For the avoidance of doubt, as used in this Agreement, the word including means including but not limited to.
D. No Waiver
No waiver of any term of this Agreement will be deemed a further or continuing waiver of such term or any other term, and Bergen Co.’s failure to assert any right or provision under this Agreement will not constitute a waiver of such right or provision.
