In the event that any suit, action or other legal proceeding shall be instituted against any User or Phillips™ (each a “Party” and collectively, the “Parties”) in connection with the Agreement and/or Phillips™ Offerings, each Party hereby submits to the jurisdiction of either the United States District Court for the Southern District of New York or any New York State Court of competent jurisdiction, located in New York County, and further agrees to comply with all the requirements necessary to give such court jurisdiction.
