12. GENERAL TERMS

These Terms, the Privacy Policy and any other terms referenced in these Terms constitute the entire agreement between you and Achaogen with respect to your access and use of this Website and Achaogen's services and supersede all prior or contemporaneous agreements (whether oral, written or electronic) between you and Achaogen with respect to this Website or Achaogen's services. 

No modification to the Terms will be binding on Achaogen unless in writing and signed by an authorized Achaogen representative. You must not assign or otherwise transfer the Terms or any right granted hereunder.

If any of the provisions of these Terms are determined to be invalid or unenforceable, then each invalid or enforceable provision will be construed in a manner consistent with applicable laws to reflect, as nearly as possible, the original intentions of the parties, and the remaining provisions shall remain in full force and effect. 

Any express waiver or failure to exercise promptly any right under the Terms will not create a continuing waiver or any expectation of non-enforcement. 

You agree that any material breach of Sections 1, 2, 3, 4 and 5 of the Terms will result in irreparable harm to Achaogen for which damages would be an inadequate remedy and, therefore, in addition to its rights and remedies otherwise available at law, Achaogen will be entitled to equitable relief, including both a preliminary and permanent injunction, if such a breach occurs. You waive any requirement for the posting of a bond or other security if Achaogen seeks such an injunction. 

Rights and obligations under the Terms which by their nature should survive will remain in full effect after termination or expiration of the Terms. 

You shall comply with all applicable laws, statutes, ordinances and regulations regarding your use of the Website and Achaogen's services. 

Achaogen's performance of this agreement is subject to existing laws and legal process, and nothing contained in these Terms is in derogation of Achaogen's right to comply with governmental, court, and law enforcement requests or requirements relating to your use of the services or information provided to or gathered by Achaogen with respect to such use. A printed version of these Terms and of any notices given in electronic form shall be admissible in judicial or administrative proceedings based upon or relating to this agreement to the same extent and subject to the same conditions as other business documents and records originally generated and maintained in printed form.
