Choice of Law and Jurisdiction
The Site and/or Service is created, operated and controlled by Provider in the State of Delaware, United States of America.

Some of the Site and/or Service are only intended for persons in those states and jurisdictions where such products and services may legally be offered. Accordingly, the Site and/or Service shall not be considered a solicitation to buy or an offer to sell any products or services to any person in any jurisdiction where such offer, solicitation, purchase or sale would be unlawful.
YOU AGREE THAT ANY CAUSE OF ACTION ARISING OUT OF OR RELATED TO THE SERVICE MUST COMMENCE WITHIN ONE (1) YEAR AFTER THE CAUSE OF ACTION ACCRUES. OTHERWISE, SUCH CAUSE OF ACTION IS PERMANENTLY BARRED.
Disclaimers and Disclosures
The Site and/or Service may include inaccuracies or typographical errors. Provider reserves the right, in its sole discretion and without notice, to correct any errors or omissions in any portion of the Service, or to deny access to the Service to anyone at any time. You acknowledge and agree that Provider is not responsible for any User Content posted by users of the Service.
Advice received via the Service should not be relied upon for personal, medical, legal or financial decisions and you should consult an appropriate professional for specific advice tailored to your situation. You acknowledge that any reliance upon any advice, opinion, statement, or other information displayed or distributed through the Service is at your sole risk. Prior to making any decisions based on information posted on the Service, you are advised to verify the information, indecently. Provider shall not have any liability arising from your acts or decisions based upon the information provided on the Service.
When it comes to buying products or services when using the internet, it is recommended that you always conduct your own investigations. This includes buying any products or services offered or sold as part of, or through, the Service.
Unless we have stated otherwise, you should always assume that when products or services are made reference to as part of the Service, they are made because there exists a material connection between Provider and the providers of the products and services displayed. It should be noted that this is not always the case.
Where extracts have been displayed from third party sources or content has been generated and posted by a third-party source (i.e., Content Providers, etc.), these are in no way indicative of any kind of verifiable result, opinion, recommendation or otherwise. You are strongly cautioned to conduct your own due diligence prior to relying on such sources.
You understand that by using the Service, you may encounter content that may be deemed offensive, indecent, or objectionable, which content may or may not be identified as having explicit language. Nevertheless, you agree to use the Service at your sole risk and that Provider shall have no liability to you for content that may be found to be offensive, indecent, or objectionable. Content descriptions are provided for convenience, and you acknowledge and agree that Provider does not guarantee their accuracy. If you are a consumer in the EEA (European Economic Area), we do not exclude or limit any liability for gross negligence, intent, or death or personal injury caused by our negligence or willful misconduct.
You represent and warrant to Provider that you (a) are not designated on any sanctions- or export- related list of restricted or blocked persons, including designation on the U.S. Department of the Treasury Office of Foreign Asset Control's (“OFAC”) List of Specially Designated Nationals and Blocked Persons, (b) are not located in, organized under the laws of, or resident in any country or territory that is itself the subject of any economic or financial sanctions by any U.S. or other relevant governmental authority, including, but not limited to, Cuba, Iran, Syria, North Korea, Venezuela and the Crimea Region of Ukraine, (c) are not greater than 50% owned or controlled by any persons described in clause (a) or (b) (collectively with (a) and (b), a “Restricted Person”), (d) will not violate or cause Provider to violate any economic sanctions, including those administered by OFAC, in connection with the Site and/or Services, and (e) will notify Provider immediately of any breach of the terms described in clauses (a) through (d).
If any provisions hereof are deemed invalid or unenforceable, they will be severed or construed to reflect, as nearly as possible, the original intentions of the parties, and the remaining provisions shall remain in full force and effect. No waiver of any provision by us shall be deemed a further or continuing waiver of such provision or any other provision, and our failure to assert any right or provision under these Terms shall not constitute a waiver of such right or provision. The section titles in these Terms are for convenience only and have no legal or contractual effect. The Site and Services are hosted and operated in the United States of America and we make no representation that any content is appropriate for access outside of the United States. Those who choose to access the Site and Service from outside the United States do so on their own initiative and are responsible for compliance with local laws. If any part of this Agreement is determined to be invalid or unenforceable pursuant to applicable law including, but not limited to, the warranty disclaimers and liability limitations set forth above, then the invalid or unenforceable provision will be deemed superseded by a valid, enforceable provision that most closely matches the intent of the original provision and the remainder of the Agreement shall continue in effect. No failure or delay in enforcing any provision, exercising any option or requiring performance, shall be construed to be a waiver of that or any other right in connection with this Agreement. You may not assign your rights under this Agreement without our prior written permission and any attempt by you to do so shall be void from inception.
