You acknowledge that DHI may be irreparably damaged if this Agreement is not specifically enforced, and damages at law would be an inadequate remedy. Therefore, in the event of a breach or threatened breach of any provision of this Agreement by you or someone using your Account, DHI shall be entitled, in addition to all rights and remedies, to an injunction restraining such breach or threatened breach, without being required to show any actual damage or to post an injunction bond, and/or to a decree for specific performance of the provisions of this Agreement.

You agree that: (i) the Site and Services shall be deemed solely based in the State of Wisconsin; and (ii) the Site shall be deemed a passive site that does not give rise to personal jurisdiction over DHI, its affiliates and assigns, either specific or general, in jurisdictions other than the State of Wisconsin. This Agreement and the relationship between you and DHI is to be governed by and construed in accordance with the internal laws of the State of Wisconsin, without regard for principles of conflicts of laws. Any civil action, claim, dispute or proceeding arising out of or relating to this Agreement, except for an injunctive action regarding a breach or threatened breach of any provision of this Agreement by you as provided above, shall be brought in the courts of Brown County, Wisconsin, or the United States District Court, Eastern District of Wisconsin, Milwaukee Division and you agree to the exclusive jurisdiction and forum of the same. DHI’s failure to enforce any right or provision of this Agreement does not constitute a waiver of that right or provision.
If any portion of this Agreement is deemed unlawful, void or unenforceable by any arbitrator or court of competent jurisdiction, this Agreement as a whole shall not be deemed unlawful, void or unenforceable, but only that portion of this Agreement that is unlawful, void or unenforceable shall be stricken from this Agreement.
