7.6. Governing Law: This Agreement shall be governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of Cyprus without giving effect to conflicts of law principles. You irrevocably agree to submit, for the benefit of us, to the exclusive jurisdiction of the federal courts of Cyprus for the settlement of any claim, dispute or matter arising out of or concerning this Agreement or its enforceability and you waive any objection to proceedings in such courts on the grounds of venue or on the grounds that proceedings have been brought in an inconvenient forum.
7.7. Severability: Whenever possible, each provision of this Agreement will be interpreted in such a manner as to be effective and valid under applicable law but, if any provision of this Agreement is held to be invalid, illegal or unenforceable in any respect, such provision will be ineffective only to the extent of such invalidity, or unenforceability, without invalidating the remainder of this Agreement or any other provision hereof.
7.8. Entire Agreement: This Agreement embodies the complete agreement and understanding between you and us with respect to the subject matter hereof and supersedes any prior agreement or understanding between you and us in relation to such subject matter. You acknowledge and agree that in entering into this Agreement, you have not relied on any statement, representation, guarantee warranty, understanding, undertaking, promise or assurance (whether negligently or innocently made) of any person (whether us or anyone on our behalf) other than as expressly set out in the Agreement.
7.9. No Third Party Rights: Except insofar as this Agreement expressly provides that a third party may in their own right enforce a term of this Agreement, a person who is not a party to this Agreement has no right under local law or statute to rely upon or enforce any term of this Agreement but this does not affect any right or remedy of a third party which exists or is available apart from under that local law or statute.
