No electronic or digital communication of any kind should be considered a "writing" made to amend or modify our Terms of Use or the rights and obligations of the parties described herein.

All titles purely serve as a reference and do not affect the meaning. If an arbitrator or a court of competent jurisdiction determines that any provision of this Agreement is invalid, null, or unenforceable, you agree that, unless it materially affects the entire intent and purpose of this Agreement, invalidity, nullity or unenforceability will not affect the validity of this Agreement or the remaining provisions described herein, and the provision in question will be deemed superseded by a new valid and enforceable provision that more closely reflects the intent and purpose of the original provision.
