Any controversy or claim arising out of or relating to these Terms or our sites will be settled by binding
arbitration in accordance with the commercial arbitration rules of the American Arbitration Association.
Any such controversy or claim shall be arbitrated on an individual basis, and shall not be consolidated in
any arbitration with any claim or controversy of any other party. The arbitration shall be conducted in
San Francisco, California, and judgment on the arbitration award may be entered in any court having
jurisdiction thereof. Either you or we may seek any interim or preliminary relief from a court of competent
jurisdiction in San Francisco, California necessary to protect the rights or property of you or the Party

These Terms constitute the entire agreement between you and the Parties with respect to the Service, and
supersedes all previous written or oral agreements. If any part of these Terms is determined to be invalid
or unenforceable pursuant to applicable law, 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superseded by a valid, enforceable provision that most closely matches the intent of the original provision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 Terms shall continue in effect. Some states do not allow exclusion of implied warranties
or limitation of liability for incidental or consequential damages, so the above limitations or exclusions may
not apply to you. In such states, our liability and that of our third party content providers and their
respective agents shall be limited to the greatest extent permitted by law.
