Affiliated Sites. Organization has no control over, and no liability for, any third party websites or materials. Organization may link the Site to Internet sites of other businesses. Because neither Organization nor the Site has control over the content and performance of the sites of other businesses, Company makes no guarantees about the accuracy, currency, content, or quality of the information provided by such sites, and Organization assumes no responsibility for unintended, objectionable, inaccurate, misleading, or unlawful content that may reside on those sites.

You hereby irrevocably consent to the exclusive jurisdiction of the state or federal courts in Santa Clara County, California in all disputes arising out of or related to the use of the Site
or Service.

Severability Waiver. If, for whatever reason, a court of competent jurisdiction finds any term or condition in these Terms of Use to be unenforceable, all other terms and conditions will remain unaffected and in full force and effect. No waiver of any breach of any provision of these Terms of Use shall constitute a waiver of any prior, concurrent, or subsequent breach of the same or any other provisions hereof, and no waiver shall be effective unless made in writing and signed by an authorized representative of the waiving party.
