You also waive California Civil Code §1542, which says: "A general release does not extend to claims which the creditor does not know or suspect to exist in his favor at the time of executing the release, which if known by him must have materially affected his settlement with the debtor." You also waive any and all benefits and rights that would otherwise accrue to you by reason of the provisions of any federal or state statute or principle of common law of any state of the United States, or any political entity or nation, province or local law or regulation that may govern this release, which statute, regulation, law or principle provides in substance something similar to California Civil Code §1542.
Company will provide any notice to you at the email address you provide upon creating a username or by other reasonable means now known or hereafter devised, including without limitation posting notice on the Service. You will provide any notice to Company in writing at the following address: email@example.com.
These TERMS and the relationship between you and Company shall be governed by the laws of the State of California as an agreement wholly performed therein without regard to its conflict of law provisions. You agree that: (i) the Service shall be deemed solely based in California; and (ii) the Service shall be deemed a passive website that does not give rise to personal jurisdiction over Company, either specific or general, in jurisdictions other than California.

Arbitration under these TERMS shall be conducted under the rules then prevailing of the American Arbitration Association. The arbitrator's award shall be binding and may be entered as a judgment in any court of competent jurisdiction. To the fullest extent permitted by applicable law, no arbitration under these TERMS shall be joined to an arbitration involving any other party subject to these TERMS, whether through class arbitration proceedings or otherwise.
Regardless of any statute or law to the contrary, any claim or cause of action arising out of or related to use of the Service or the TERMS must be filed within one year after such claim or cause of action arose or be forever barred. Any claim by you that may arise in connection with these TERMS will be compensable by monetary damages and you will in no event be entitled to injunctive or other equitable relief.

Except as otherwise expressly provided in these TERMS, there shall be no third-party beneficiaries to this agreement.
No agency, partnership, joint venture, employee-employer or franchiser-franchisee relationship is intended or created by this Agreement.
The failure of Company to exercise or enforce any right or provision of these TERMS shall not constitute a waiver of such right or provision. If any provision of these TERMS is found by a court of competent jurisdiction to be invalid, the court should nevertheless endeavor to give effect to the parties' intentions as reflected in the provision, and the other provisions of these TERMS remain in full force and effect.
