Use of the Service is not authorized in any jurisdiction that does not give effect to all provisions of these Terms, including without limitation, this section.
This Agreement constitutes the entire agreement between Participant and Company and governs Participant’s use of the Service, superseding any prior agreements between Participant and Company with respect to the Service. This Agreement will be governed by the laws of the State of California without regard to its conflict of law provisions. With respect to any disputes or claims not subject to arbitration, as set forth above, Participant and Company agree to submit to the personal and exclusive jurisdiction of the state and federal courts located in or for San Mateo County, California. The failure of Company to exercise or enforce any right or provision of this Agreement will not constitute a waiver of such right or provision. If any provision of this Agreement is found by a court of competent jurisdiction to be invalid, the parties nevertheless agree that the court should endeavor to give effect to the parties’ intentions as reflected in the provision, and the other provisions of this Agreement remain in full force and effect. Participant agrees that regardless of any statute or law to the contrary, any claim or cause of action arising out of or related to use of the Service or this Agreement must be filed within one (1) year after such claim or cause of action arose or be forever barred. A printed version of this agreement and of any notice given in electronic form will be admissible in judicial or administrative proceedings based upon or relating to this agreement to the same extent and subject to the same conditions as other business documents and records originally generated and maintained in printed form. Participant may not assign this Agreement without the prior written consent of Company, but Company may assign or transfer this Agreement in whole or in part, without restriction. Company Parties shall not have any liability to Participant for any or be deemed to be in default, for any delay or failure to perform any act under this Agreement resulting, directly or indirectly, from acts of God, civil or military authority, acts of public enemy, terrorism, war, accidents, fires, explosions, earthquake, flood, failure of transportation, strikes or other work stoppages, or any other cause beyond its reasonable control. The section titles in this Agreement are for convenience only and have no legal or contractual effect. Notices to Participant may be made via either email or regular mail.
