XVI. Jurisdictional Issues.
We make no representation that information on this website is appropriate or available for use outside the United States.

We may terminate any user’s access to our website, including access to any online discussion forum, bulletin board or chat room, in our sole discretion, for any reason and at any time, with or without prior notice.

These Terms of Service shall be governed and interpreted pursuant to the laws of the United States of America, notwithstanding any principles of conflicts of law.
All disputes arising out of or relating to these Terms of Service shall be finally resolved by arbitration conducted in the English language in the U.S.A. under the commercial arbitration rules of the American Arbitration Association. The parties shall appoint as sole arbitrator a retired judge who presided in the U.S.A. The parties shall bear equally the cost of the arbitration (except that the prevailing party shall be entitled to an award of reasonable attorneys’ fees incurred in connection with the arbitration in such an amount as may be determined by the arbitrator). All decisions of the arbitrator shall be final and binding on both parties and enforceable in any court of competent jurisdiction. Notwithstanding the foregoing, we shall be entitled to seek injunctive relief, security, or other equitable remedies from the United States District Court or any other court of competent jurisdiction. Under no circumstances shall the arbitrator be authorized to award punitive damages, including but not limited to federal or state statutes permitting multiple or punitive damage awards. Any purported award of punitive or multiple damages shall be beyond the arbitrator’s authority, void, and unenforceable.
If any part of these Terms of Service is held to be unlawful, void, or unenforceable, that part will be deemed severable and shall not affect the validity and enforceability of the remaining provisions.
XX. Entire Agreement.
These Terms of Service constitute the entire agreement between the parties relating to the subject matter herein. We may, at our sole discretion and without notice, revise these terms at any time by updating this posting.

Disclosure of Information
Although we make every effort to maintain the privacy of our users, we may need to disclose information to fulfill certain legal and regulatory requirements, or if we have a good faith belief that such action is necessary to comply with a current judicial proceeding or a court order or legal process served on us, or to assert or defend our legal rights, or to protect us or others from harm to persons or property.
