Upon a request by us, you agree to defend, indemnify, and hold us and the other Site Parties harmless from all liabilities, claims, and expenses, including attorneys’ fees, that arise from your violation of these TOS or any of the other documents, or other negligent or wrongful conduct. Site reserves the right to assume the exclusive defense and control of any matter otherwise subject to indemnification by you, in which event you will cooperate with us in asserting any available defenses.
We make no representation or warranty that the content and materials on the Sites or the Services are appropriate or available for use in locations outside the United States. Those who choose to access the Sites or use the Services from other locations do so on their own initiative and at their own risk, and are responsible for compliance with local laws, if and to the extent applicable. Site reserves the right, at any time in our sole discretion, to limit the availability and accessibility of the Sites or the Services to any person, geographic area or jurisdiction we so desire, and to limit the quantities of any such service or products that we provide.
You agree that Site, in its sole discretion, may terminate your password, account (in whole or in part) or use of the Sites or Services, and remove and discard any content within the Sites or Services, at any time and for any reason. You agree that any actions taken under this Section may be effective without prior notice to you.
These TOS and the relationship between you and the Site shall be governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of the State of California, without regard to its conflict of law provisions. You and Site irrevocably agree to submit to the personal and exclusive jurisdiction of the federal and state courts located within the county of Alameda, in the State of California, and waive any jurisdictional, venue or inconvenient forum objections to such courts.
Waiver and Severability
The failure of Site to exercise or enforce any right or provision of these TOS shall not constitute a waiver of such right or provision. If any provision of these TOS is found by a court of competent jurisdiction to be unlawful, void or for any reason unenforceable, then that provision shall be deemed severed herefrom and shall not affect the validity and enforceability of any remaining provisions.
Successors and Assigns
We may perform any of our obligations or exercise any of our rights under this TOS through one or more of our corporate affiliates (including any entity that directly or indirectly controls, is controlled by or is under common control with us). If Site or its assets are acquired by another entity, that entity will assume our rights and obligations as described in this TOS. You may not assign your rights or obligations under this TOS, by operation of law or otherwise, without our prior written consent.
We may modify these TOS at any time, as we deem appropriate. If you disagree with the changes to the TOS, you must discontinue your use of the Sites and Services, and if you have registered as a member, cancel your registration. Your continued access or use of any of the Sites or Services following such notice signifies your acceptance of the modified TOS. It is your responsibility to review the TOS regularly to be aware of such modifications. We reserve the right to modify or discontinue the Sites or Services with or without notice. We will not be liable to you or any third party should we exercise our right to modify or discontinue the Sites or Services. If you object to any such changes, your sole recourse will be to cease access to the Sites or Services. Continued access to the Sites or Services following notice of any such changes will indicate your acknowledgement of such changes and acceptance of the Sites or Services as so modified and your use of new Services will be governed by these TOS.
- Any cause of claim or action you may have must be commenced within six (6) months after the claim or cause of action arises. Else, such claim or cause of action is barred.
- You and Site agree that any dispute or claim arising from or relating to the Terms shall be finally settled by arbitration, using the English language, administered by the American Arbitration Association (the “AAA”) under its Commercial Arbitration Rules then in effect. Our arbitration will be handled by a sole arbitrator in accordance with those rules. Judgment on the arbitration award may be entered in any court that has jurisdiction. Any arbitration under the Terms will take place on an individual basis: class arbitrations and class actions are not permitted. You understand that by agreeing to the Terms, you and Site are each waiving the right to trial by jury or to participate in a class action. Notwithstanding the foregoing, each party shall have the right to bring an action in a court of proper jurisdiction for injunctive or other equitable or conservatory relief, pending a final decision by the arbitrator.
- Most communication between Site and you will be sent and received electronically. You agree that all electronic communication between Site and you shall satisfy any legal requirement that such communications be in writing.
Any rights of Site not expressly granted herein are reserved.
