Miscellaneous

These terms control the relationship between you and OSOM. They do not create any third party beneficiary rights.

These Terms shall be governed by and construed according to the laws of the State of California, without reference to its choice of law principles. Any claim or cause of action arising out of or relating to the Sites shall be brought in the state or federal courts located in the Northern District of California and you hereby agree to the jurisdiction and venue of those courts for any such dispute. Any such claim or cause of action shall be barred permanently unless such claim or cause of action is brought within one year after it arises.

Where possible, these Terms shall be interpreted in such manner as to be effective and valid under applicable law. Should any part of these Terms for any reason be declared invalid or void, such decision shall not affect the remaining portion which will remain in full force and effect.

This is the entire agreement between us relating to your use of the Sites and supersedes any prior understandings or agreements, written or oral. These terms may not be modified by you, in writing or otherwise, unless agreed to in a written document signed by OSOM.

OSOM has the right, in its sole judgment, to block access from a particular Internet address or to suspend or terminate a user’s account for violations of these Terms. In addition, we reserve the right to seek all remedies available at law and in equity for violations of these Terms.
