Terms of Service
THESE TERMS CONTAIN A MANDATORY ARBITRATION CLAUSE THAT REQUIRES THE USE OF ARBITRATION ON AN INDIVIDUAL BASIS TO RESOLVE DISPUTES, RATHER THAN JURY TRIAL OR CLASS ACTIONS.
Please read the Terms carefully before you start to use Services. By using the Services or by clicking to accept or agree to the Terms when this option is made available to you, you accept and agree to be bound and abide by these Terms. If you do not want to agree to these Terms, you must not access or use the Site or Services.
We may revise and update these Terms from time to time in our sole discretion. All changes are effective immediately when we post them, and apply to all access to and use of the Site and Services thereafter. However, any changes to the dispute resolution provisions set out in the Governing Law and Jurisdiction section will not apply to any disputes for which the parties have actual notice on or before the date the change is posted on the Site.
Your continued use of the Site and Services following the posting of revised Terms means that you accept and agree to the changes. You are expected to check this page from time to time so you are aware of any changes, as they are binding on you.
Our Site and Services are offered and available to users who are 18 years of age or older. By using the Site or Services, you represent and warrant that you are of legal age to form a binding contract with us and you meet all of the foregoing eligibility requirements. If you do not meet all of these requirements, you must not access or use the Site and Services.
Subject to the terms and conditions of these Terms, we grant you a limited, non-exclusive, personal, nontransferable, non-sublicensable, noncommercial right and license to: (1) access and use the Site; and (2) view and use the Services, including, without limitation, the products and services made available on or through the Site.

Nothing contained herein shall be construed as conferring by implication, estoppel or otherwise, any license or other grant of right to use any patent, copyright, trademark, service mark, trade secret or other intellectual property right, except as expressly provided herein. If you want to make commercial use of any of the Services, you must enter into a separate written agreement with us in advance. The license provided herein is effective until terminated. This license automatically terminates if you fail to comply with these Terms.
We reserve the right to withdraw or amend our Site and Services, in our sole discretion without notice.
