13(b) Jurisdiction. For any proceedings under this Agreement (“Proceedings”), each party irrevocably:―

13(b)(i) submits:―
(1) if the Agreement is governed by English law, to the non-exclusive jurisdiction of the English courts (unless the Proceedings involve a Convention Court, in which case it will be the exclusive jurisdiction of the English courts); or
(2) if this Agreement is expressed to be governed by the laws of the State of New York, to the non-exclusive jurisdiction of the courts of the State of New York and the United States District Court located in Manhattan;
13(b)(ii) waives (i) any objection to the laying of venue of any Proceedings brought in any such court, (ii) any claim that the Proceedings have been brought in an inconvenient forum and (iii) the right to argue that such court has no jurisdiction; and
13(b)(iii) agrees that Proceedings brought in one jurisdictions will not preclude Proceedings in any other jurisdiction.

13(c) Service of Process. Each party appoints any Process Agent specified for it in the Schedule to receive service of process in any Proceedings. If a Process Agent cannot act, the appointing party must tell the other party and within 30 days appoint an acceptable substitute. The parties consent to service of process by hand, fax or registered mail per Section 12. This clause does not stop parties serving process in any other permissible manner.
13(d) Waiver of immunities. Each party irrevocably waives all sovereign immunity relating to any Proceedings and agrees not to claim any such immunity in any Proceedings.
