Notwithstanding and without limiting the generality of the foregoing, InsBOSS agrees (a) to conduct itself strictly as an independent contractor pursuant to this Agreement, and  (b) to  comply with  all applicable  laws, rules, and  regulations, including  without limitation all laws, rules, and regulations governing the payment of federal and state income taxes, self-employment taxes, estimated taxes, sales, use and service taxes, and all other federal, state, local, and foreign taxes of any nature imposed with respect to any obligations pursuant to this Agreement or payments thereof.

  • 15.3 Injunctive Relief. The parties agree that in the event of a breach of any provision of this Agreement, the aggrieved party may be without an adequate remedy at law.

Any dispute, suit, action, or proceeding arising out of or related to this Agreement shall be commenced in a federal or state court located in Nassau County, New York. The Parties to this Agreement: (i) irrevocably submit to the exclusive jurisdiction and venue of any such court in any such dispute, suit, action, or proceeding and (ii) irrevocably waive (to the extent permitted by applicable law) any objection which they now or hereafter may have to venue in these courts and any objection on the ground that any such dispute, suit, action, or proceeding has been brought in an inconvenient forum.
