If you are a California resident or resident of a state with a similar applicable law, you hereby expressly waive California Civil Code section 1542 in connection with the foregoing (or such other similar applicable law in your state), which states: "A general release does not extend to claims that the creditor or releasing party does not know or suspect to exist in his or her favor at the time of executing the release and that, if known by him or her, would have materially affected his or her settlement with the debtor or released party."

CONTENT SUBMISSION AND REMOVAL

To the extent you are allowed to submit information, we will use your information consistent with the terms of this Agreement and our Privacy Policy. We reserve the right to remove, screen, edit, or reinstate your information (as defined in the Privacy Policy) from time to time at our sole discretion for any reason or no reason, and without notice to you. You shall be solely responsible for your information and the consequences of submitting and publishing your information on our Website. You affirm, represent, and warrant that you own, or have the necessary licenses, rights, consents, and permissions to publish any information that you submit; and you license to us all patent, trademark, trade secret, copyright or other proprietary rights in and to your information for publication on the Website pursuant to this Agreement.

ARBITRATION AND CLASS ACTION WAIVER

Any controversy, claim or dispute arising out of or relating to this Agreement, the Privacy Policy, or the use of the Website, shall be submitted to confidential and binding arbitration in Dover, Delaware. Such arbitration shall be conducted in accordance with the then prevailing arbitration rules of the American Arbitration Association. All arbitration decisions shall be final, binding and conclusive on all the parties to arbitration, and legal judgment may be entered based upon such decision in accordance with applicable law in any court of competent jurisdiction. Notwithstanding the foregoing, to the extent that there has been a violation, or threatened violation, of our intellectual property rights or those of our affiliates, partners, vendors and/or software licensors, we may seek injunctive relief, or any other appropriate relief, in any court of competent jurisdiction and you hereby consent to the exclusive jurisdiction and venue in such court(s). 

YOU ACKNOWLEDGE THAT YOU ARE VOLUNTARILY AND KNOWINGLY FORFEITING YOUR RIGHT TO A TRIAL BY JURY AND TO OTHERWISE PROCEED IN A LAWSUIT IN STATE OR FEDERAL COURT.

YOU AGREE THAT DISPUTES BETWEEN YOU AND US WILL BE RESOLVED BY BINDING, INDIVIDUAL ARBITRATION AS DESCRIBED ABOVE AND YOU WAIVE YOUR RIGHT TO PARTICIPATE IN A CLASS ACTION LAWSUIT OR CLASS-WIDE ARBITRATION. 

If for any reason a claim proceeds in court rather than in arbitration, we each hereby waive any right to a jury trial.

SEVERABILITY

To the extent that any provision of this Agreement is deemed to be unlawful, void, or unenforceable, including the binding arbitration and class action waiver, such provision shall nonetheless be enforceable to the fullest extent permitted by applicable law, and the unenforceable portion shall be deemed to be severed from the Agreement. Such determination shall not affect the validity and enforceability of any other remaining provisions.
