9.7 FORCE MAJEURE.

Neither party will be responsible for any failure to perform due to causes beyond its reasonable control, including, but not limited to, acts of God, terrorism, war, riot, embargoes, fire, floods, earthquakes, strikes or failure of a utility service or telecommunications network (each a “Force Majeure Event”) provided that such party gives prompt written notice to the other party of the Force Majeure Event.  The time for performance will be extended for a period equal to the duration of the Force Majeure Event.

This Agreement and any dispute arising hereunder shall be governed by and interpreted and construed in accordance with the laws of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts, without regard to conflict of law principles, and shall be subject to the exclusive jurisdiction of the federal and state courts located in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts, and each party consents to the exclusive personal jurisdiction and venue of such courts.

Neither party shall directly or indirectly solicit, employ or engage any employee of the other party with whom the non-employing party came into contact through the performance of this Agreement during the period such employee was engaged in the performance of this Agreement and for one (1) year after such engagement.  If any court or other adjudicatory body determines that the foregoing provision is unenforceable because of its duration or scope, the court or adjudicatory body has the power to reduce the duration or scope of the provision, as the case may be, so that in its reduced form the provision is enforceable.  Such power includes the authority to reform the provision by rewriting it, if required, so that it conforms to applicable law and carries out the parties’ intentions under this Agreement.
