independent contractors. Nothing in these Terms shall be deemed to constitute a
partnership, joint venture, employment or franchise between the Parties, nor constitute
any Party as the agent of the other Party for any purpose or entitle any Party to commit
or bind the other Party in any manner.
14.2Entire Agreement and Revisions. These Terms, including any exhibits and Pricing
Agreement(s), constitute the entire agreement, and supersede all prior or contemporaneous,
written or oral understandings, communications or agreements between the Parties
regarding such subject matter, including any click-wrap terms. Any use of Your
pre-printed forms, such as purchase orders, are for convenience only, and any
pre-printed terms and conditions set forth in Your printed forms that are in addition
to, inconsistent or in conflict with, or different than these Terms shall be null and
void. Neither commencement of performance, nor failure to object to any additional or
different terms and conditions from You, nor provision of Services, by, in each case, Us
or the other Group Companies shall constitute an acceptance of any terms and conditions
proposed by You that are in addition to, inconsistent or in conflict with, or different
than these Terms. In the event of a conflict between any Pricing Agreement and these
Terms, the Pricing Agreement shall prevail to the extent it is intended to.
We may amend these Terms from time to time by posting the most current version on Our
Website, in which case the new Terms will supersede prior versions. Please check these
Terms periodically to take notice of changes as they will be binding on You. If an amendment
materially affects Your rights, We will notify You (by, for example, sending a message to the
e-mail address associated with Your Account, or posting on Our blog or on the Website or as a
notification inside the Services). Your continued use of the Services following the effective date
of any such amendment may be relied upon by Us as Your acceptance of any such amendment.
If You do not agree to an amendment, You may terminate Your use of the Services or request Us
to terminate the provision of Our Services to You.
14.3Severability and Waiver. In the
event any provision of these Terms is held to be invalid or unenforceable, the valid or
enforceable portion thereof and the remaining provisions of these Terms will remain in
full force and effect. Any waiver (express or implied) by any Party of any right under
these Terms shall not constitute a waiver of any other or subsequent default or breach.
14.4Assignment. We may assign or
transfer all or any part of these Terms or Our rights under these Terms or delegate the
performance of Our duties under these Terms in whole or in part to any of the other
Group Companies, or in connection with any acquisition, consolidation, merger,
reorganization, transfer all or substantially all of Our assets or other business
combination, or by operation of law without Your consent and without providing notice.
We may subcontract Our obligations hereunder, provided that We shall at all times remain
responsible for the performance of the subcontractor. You may not assign or transfer
these Terms without Our prior written consent. Notwithstanding the foregoing, You may
assign or transfer these Terms, in whole, in connection with any acquisition,
consolidation, merger, reorganization, transfer all or substantially all of Your
assets or other business combination, or by operation of law without Our written
consent, provided that such assignment or transfer is not in favor of a competitor of
Ours. You agree to provide Us notice of such assignment or transfer no later than its
effectiveness and to not default in any of Your payment obligations under these Terms.
Subject to the foregoing, these Terms will bind and benefit the Parties and their
respective successors and permitted assigns.
14.5Third Party Beneficiaries. Except
as expressly provided in these Terms, nothing in these Terms, express or implied, is

enforce these Terms.
14.6Governing Law. These Terms shall
be governed by the laws of the State of Delaware, United States. You hereby expressly

dispute, claim or controversy arising out of or relating to these Terms (a “Dispute”),
each Party will provide the other Party with written notice of the Dispute as soon as
practicable, and the Parties agree to exercise commercially reasonable efforts to
resolve the Dispute amicably through their designated officers. A Dispute that cannot be
resolved within thirty (30) days following the initiation of discussions contemplated by
the prior sentence will, upon written demand of either Party, be resolved exclusively by
final and binding arbitration. The Dispute shall be settled by arbitration pursuant to
the Commercial Arbitration Rules of the American Arbitration Association, and judgment
on the award rendered by the Arbitrator(s) shall be binding, conclusive and
non-appealable and may be entered in any court having jurisdiction thereof. If any
action is pursued to enforce or obtain compliance with this Agreement, the prevailing
Party shall be entitled to reasonable attorneys’ fees and costs, in addition to any
other relief to which such Party may be entitled. THE PARTIES HEREBY WAIVE ANY RIGHTS
THAT THEY MAY HAVE TO TRIAL BY JURY. YOU AGREE THAT ANY PROCEEDINGS, INCLUDING ANY
