14. Governing Law and Notice
This Agreement will be governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of the State of California, without regard to or application of the conflict of law rules or principles, and shall not apply the United Nations Convention on Contracts for the International Sales of Goods (CISG) either. The English version is the official version of this Agreement, and other language versions (if any) of this Agreement are provided for your reference only. Should there be any discrepancy between the English version and version of any other language, the English version shall prevail. You may not assign or transfer this Agreement or any rights granted hereunder, by operation of law or otherwise, without the prior written consent of Kingsoft Office, and any attempt by you to do so, without such consent, will be void. Except as expressly set forth in this Agreement, the exercise by either party of any of its remedies under this Agreement will be without prejudice to its other remedies under this Agreement or otherwise. Except as set forth herein with respect to email notifications and as set forth below, any notices or approvals required or permitted under this Agreement will in writing and delivered by confirmed facsimile transmission, by overnight delivery service, or by certified mail, and in each instance will be deemed given upon receipt. All notices or approvals will be sent to the address set forth in the applicable ordering document or payment notice, or to such other address as may be specified by either party to the other in accordance with this section. The failure by either party to enforce any provision hereof will not constitute a waiver of future enforcement of that or any other provision. You and we agree that any dispute, claim or controversy arising out of or relating in any way to the Software or this Agreement, shall be determined by binding arbitration or in small claims court. Arbitration is more informal than a lawsuit in court.

Arbitrators can award the same damages and relief that a court can award. You agree that, by agreeing to this Agreement, the U.S. Federal Arbitration Act governs the interpretation and enforcement of this provision, and that you and we are each waiving the right to a trial by jury or to participate in a class action. This arbitration provision shall survive termination of this Agreement and the termination of your licenses. The arbitration will be governed by the Commercial Arbitration Rules and the Supplementary Procedures for Consumer Related Disputes (collectively, "AAA Rules") of the American Arbitration Association ("AAA"), as modified by this Agreement, and will be administered by the AAA. The arbitrator is bound by the terms of this Agreement. All issues are for the arbitrator to decide, including issues relating to the scope and enforceability of this arbitration agreement.
