All changes are effective immediately when we post them, and apply to all access to and use of the Services thereafter. However, any changes to the dispute resolution set forth in Choice of Law, Arbitration and Class Action Waiver will not apply to any disputes for which the parties have actual notice on or prior to the date the change is posted on the Services.
Unless otherwise provided in a separate written agreement between you and us, by using the Services after we post any changes to this Agreement, you agree to accept those changes, whether or not you have reviewed them, and such acceptance shall be deemed legally conclusive. If at any time you choose not to accept the terms of this Agreement, you will not use the Services. This Agreement applies to your use of this website or other Services that we may own or operate in the future, unless such Services provide otherwise.
We reserve the right to withdraw or amend the Services, in our sole discretion without notice.

As part of the Services, we may provide you with convenient links to third party websites as well as content or items belonging to or originating from third parties. We are providing these links only as a convenience. These sites are not under our control and we are not responsible for the information or links you may find there. The inclusion of or linking to these links on any of our Services is not intended to imply our approval or endorsement of that site, but to simply provide a convenient link to relevant sites which are managed by other organizations, companies, or individuals.
If you decide to access any of the third party websites linked to this website, you do so entirely at your own risk and subject to the terms and conditions of use for such websites. Accordingly, this Agreement does not apply to your use of unaffiliated sites to which this site only provides links.

You agree that we may not be held responsible for User Content and that we are not obligated to monitor them.

We may also take steps to terminate your access to the Services or take other appropriate steps, including, without limitation, initiating or assisting in legal action. We reserve the right to modify or remove from the Services any User Content or other material that we, in our sole discretion, consider infringing, offensive, abusive, defamatory, obscene, or otherwise unacceptable or unlawful.

You agree that your notification under this paragraph will create no duty on our part to you or to any third party, and that we may not be held liable for any action that we take, or for our inaction, after you provide us with notification.

If you access the Services from a jurisdiction other than the United States, you agree that you do so on your own initiative, and are responsible for compliance with local laws, if and to the extent local laws are applicable to your use of the Services.
18.Severability and Integration
This Agreement constitutes the entire agreement between you and us and governs your use of the Services, superseding any prior or contemporaneous communications and proposals (whether oral, written or electronic) between you and us. If any portion of this Agreement is held invalid or unenforceable, that portion shall be construed in a manner consistent with applicable law to reflect, as nearly as possible, the original intention of the parties, and the remaining portions shall remain in full force and effect. This agreement may be modified only by our posting on the Services changes to this Agreement, or by a subsequent writing signed by us.
Our failure to enforce any provisions of this Agreement or to respond to a breach by you or other parties shall not in any way waive its right to enforce subsequently any terms or conditions of this Agreement or to act with respect to similar breaches.
20.No Professional Advice
Any information supplied by any of our employees or agents, whether by telephone, e-mail, letter, facsimile or other form of communication, is intended solely as general guidance on the use of the Services, and does not constitute legal, tax, accounting or other professional advice.

A printed version of this Agreement and of any notice given in electronic form shall 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.
We reserve the right, in our sole discretion, to terminate this Agreement and your access to all or part of the Services, with or without notice and with or without cause. Termination of your access to the Services means the revocation of the limited and temporary license and permission to use the software and other resources of the Services we are granting to you under this Agreement. The provisions of this Agreement will survive the termination of your access to the Services and of this Agreement. In addition, because the license you grant to us in User Content is perpetual, termination of this agreement does not terminate our license to use User Content as described elsewhere in this Agreement.
At our option, we may give notices to users of the Services by posting a message on the Service, by electronic or conventional mail or by any other means by which users obtain actual knowledge thereof. Any notices you give to us must be by electronic or conventional mail. Any notices you send to us by electronic mail must be sent to ___________________. Notices to us by conventional mail must be sent to: _______________________________________. Any notice by you to us will not change the terms of this Agreement unless the change is expressly accepted in writing by one of our authorized officers.

If we become aware that a child under the age of 13 has submitted his or her personally identifiable information, we will delete such information immediately.
