14.8 Severability. If a governmental authority of competent jurisdiction holds any provision of this Agreement to be unenforceable, then that provision is to be construed either by modifying it to the minimum extent necessary to make it enforceable (if permitted by Law) or disregarding it (if not). If an unenforceable provision is modified or disregarded in accordance with this Section, all other provisions of this Agreement are to remain in effect as written, except that this entire Agreement will be unenforceable if modifying or disregarding the unenforceable provision affects the economic and legal substance of the transactions contemplated by this Agreement in a manner materially adverse to either Party.
14.9 Integration. This Agreement contains the entire agreement of the parties with respect to the subject matter of this Agreement and supersedes all previous communications, representations, understandings and agreements, either oral or written, between the parties with respect to said subject matter. This Agreement may not be amended, except by a writing signed by both parties. If a provision in a Schedule conflicts with any other provision in this Agreement, the provision of the applicable Schedule governs to the extent of the conflict.
14.10 Governing Law. This Agreement (including this Section), any dispute, claim or controversy among the Parties arising out of or relating to this Agreement, and the Parties’ rights and obligations under this Agreement (each, a “Dispute”), are to be construed in accordance with and governed by the Laws of the State of New York applicable to agreements made and to be wholly performed in that state by persons residing or having their principal places of business therein, without giving effect to the State of New York’s conflict of laws rules to the extent those rules would require applying another jurisdiction’s Laws. The Parties exclude the application to this Agreement of the United Nations Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods. The Parties may commence an action, suit or proceeding arising out of or relating to this Agreement only in, and hereby consent to the exclusive jurisdiction of, the federal and state courts located in the County of New York within the State of New York. Each Party (i) acknowledges that any Dispute is likely to involve complicated and difficult issues, and (ii) hereby irrevocably and unconditionally waives any right it may have to a trial by jury in connection with this Agreement. Voyage Control reserves the right to participate in mediation and/or other forms of alternative dispute resolution.
14.11 Notice. All notices, requests, claims and other communications between the Parties described in or otherwise regarding this Agreement must be in writing and be given or made (and will be effective on receipt) by delivery in person, by nationally recognized overnight courier service (with signature required and all fees prepaid), by facsimile (with confirmation of transmission) or by e-mail (except that any facsimile or email received after 5:00 p.m. at the location of receipt will be deemed received on the immediately following Business Day), or by registered or certified mail (postage prepaid, return receipt requested) to a Party at its address in Schedule 1 or at any other address of which that Party has notified the other Party in accordance with this Section.
