12.4. Assignment. Neither this Agreement nor any right or interest hereunder shall be assigned by Licensee without the prior written consent of Hexagon, nor shall delegation of any obligation owed by Licensee be made without prior written consent of Hexagon. Any attempted assignment or delegation without such consent shall be wholly void and totally ineffective for all purposes.

12.5. Applicable Law.

Jurisdiction and venue for any dispute arising under this Agreement shall be in the US District Court for the Northern District of Alabama or the Circuit Court of Madison County, Alabama. The Parties waive any right to have the Agreement translated into their respective language.

12.6. Severability. Should any of the provisions of this Agreement be adjudged invalid or unenforceable by a court, tribunal, or governmental authority of competent jurisdiction, the remaining provisions hereof shall be unaffected thereby and shall remain valid and enforceable as if such provision had not been set forth herein. The Parties agree to substitute for any such invalid or unenforceable provision a valid provision which most closely approximates the intent and economic effect of such severed provision.
