11. Waiver and Severability of Terms. The failure of the Sponsor to exercise or enforce any right or provision of these Terms shall not constitute a waiver of such right or provision.

12. Choice of Law; Jurisdiction; Forum. The constructions, interpretation, and performance of these Terms shall be governed by the laws of the State of Minnesota without giving effect to its rules on the conflict of laws.
