upon thirty (30) days prior notice to ISOCNET.
9.10 Force Majeure
9.10.1 Neither party shall be deemed liable in any respect (except to pay amounts due for services previously rendered) to the other for any delay, interruption or failure in performance hereunder resulting from causes beyond its reasonable control, including without limitation: fire, flood, water, the elements, explosions, acts of God, war, accidents, labor disputes, strikes, shortages of equipment or suppliers, failure of operational environment (including without limitation, electrical utilities or air conditioning), unavailability of transportation or other similar cause. In such cases, either party shall have the right to terminate this Agreement or any affected Collocation Schedule for any such cause that is not removed within thirty (30) days of its first affecting performance hereunder. This provision shall not prevent either party from being liable for a breach of its obligations hereunder, except if such party has acted reasonably diligently to remove the cause preventing its performance.
9.11 Other Provisions
9.11.1 Governing Law; Jurisdiction: This Agreement shall be governed by, construed applied and enforced in accordance with the internal laws of the State of Ohio, except that no doctrine of choice of laws shall be used to apply any law other than that of Ohio, and no defense, counterclaim or right of set-off given or allowed by the laws of any other state or jurisdiction, or arising out of the enactment, modification or repeal of any law, regulation, ordinance or decree of any foreign jurisdiction, be interposed in any action hereon. The parties hereto expressly agree that any action, suit or other proceeding brought by either party hereunder against the other arising out of this Agreement shall be brought and maintained in those federal or state courts located within Hamilton County, Ohio and Customer and ISOCNET hereby submit to the personal jurisdiction of those federal and state courts.
9.11.2 Assignment: Neither party may assign, sell or otherwise transfer its rights or obligations under this Agreement without the prior written consent of the other party; provided however, ISOCNET may assign its rights and obligations to an affiliate or pursuant to a sale of all or substantially all of its assets.
9.11.3 Separability: The parties agree that each provision of this Agreement shall be treated as a separate and independent clause, and the invalidity or unenforceability of any one clause shall in no manner affect the validity or enforceability of any of the other clauses hereof. If any one or more of the provisions contained in this Agreement shall for any reason be held to be excessively broad as to scope, activity or subject so as to be unenforceable at law, such provision or provisions shall be construed by the appropriate judicial body by limiting and reducing it or them so as to be enforceable to the extent compatible with the applicable law as it shall then be in effect.
9.11.4 Not a Lease: Customer understands and agrees that it is not a tenant of ISOCNET, and that the Collocation Agreement is not a lease and is not intended to, and shall not be deemed to grant Customer any property rights in the Space. In the event, however, that this Agreement is construed by the owner of the Building in which the Premises are located to be such a grant, Customer agrees to either enter into an agreement with the owner of the Building, or to promptly remove the Equipment, and that ISOCNET shall have no further liability to Customer in such case.
10. Non-Solicitation of Employees
10.1 Customer agrees that during the period of time they are a customer of ISOCNET, and for a period of three (3) years afterwards, not to, in any manner, directly or indirectly, solicit to hire or hire any person who at such time is, or who within the past six months was an employee of ISOCNET.
10.2 Customer also agrees that during the period of time they are a customer of ISOCNET, and for a period of three (3) years afterwards, not to, in any manner, directly or indirectly, interfere with or damage (or attempt to interfere with or damage) any relationship between ISOCNET or its affiliates and any client or prospective client.
