13.5 No Assignment.

These Terms shall be binding upon the parties and their respective successors and permitted assigns.
13.6 Force Majeure.
Any delay in the performance of any duties or obligations of either party (except the payment of money owed) will not be considered a breach of these Terms if such delay is caused by a labor dispute, shortage of materials, fire, earthquake, flood, or any other event beyond the control of such party, provided that such party uses reasonable efforts, under the circumstances, to notify the other party of the cause of such delay and to resume performance as soon as possible.

In the event that the last email address you have provided to Talent Sonar is not valid, or for any reason is not capable of delivering to you any notices required by these Terms, Talent Sonar’s dispatch of the email containing such notice will nonetheless constitute effective notice of the changes described on the notice. Any notice provided to Talent Sonar pursuant to these Terms should be sent to Talent Sonar, Inc., 400 Alabama St., Suite 201, San Francisco, CA 94110.
13.9 Entire Agreement.
These Terms are the final, complete and exclusive agreement of the parties with respect to the subject matters hereof and supersede and merge all prior discussions between the parties with respect to such subject matters.
