You will not settle or resolve any such claim in a manner that imposes any liability or obligation on INTURN or affects INTURN’s rights in connection therewith without the advance written approval of INTURN.
If you have a dispute with another user, you release the INTURN Parties from claims, demands and damages (actual and consequential) of every kind and nature, known and unknown, arising out of or in any way connected with such disputes. If you are a California resident, you 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.”
Except for Your Content, and the Content submitted by other members or users, as between you and INTURN, the INTURN Service and all aspects thereof, including all copyrights, trademarks, and other intellectual property or proprietary rights therein, are owned by INTURN and/or its suppliers and licensors (“INTURN Property”). You acknowledge that the INTURN Property and any underlying technology or software used in connection with the Service contain INTURN’s proprietary information. You may not modify, reproduce, distribute, create derivative works of, publicly display or in any way exploit, any of the INTURN Property in whole or in part except as expressly provided in these Terms of Service. Except as expressly and unambiguously provided in these Terms of Service, there are no implied licenses.
17. Miscellaneous Provisions
These Terms of Service are governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of the State of New York, without giving effect to its conflict of laws provisions or your actual state or country of residence. You agree to submit to the personal and exclusive jurisdiction of the federal and state courts located within New York county. If we are required to bring legal action against you for violation of these Terms of Service (including collection of any amounts owed to us), we shall be entitled to recover our attorneys’ fees and costs associated with such enforcement in addition to any other remedies. If for any reason a court of competent jurisdiction finds any provision or portion of these Terms of Service to be unenforceable, that provision will be limited or eliminated, to the minimum extent necessary, so that these Terms of Service shall otherwise remain in full force and effect, and enforceable. You agree that 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 of these Terms of Service must be filed within one (1) year after such claim or cause of action arose or be forever barred.
INTURN may be required by state or federal law to notify you of certain events. You hereby acknowledge and consent that such notices will be effective upon our posting them on the Service. You authorize INTURN to send notices via email as well if INTURN decides, in its sole discretion, to do so. You agree to check the Service for notices, and that You will be considered to have received a notice when it is made available to you by posting on the Service.
References to affiliates, partners, or other terms used to describe the relationship between INTURN and certain third parties are for convenience only, used to reflect that there is cooperation between INTURN and such third parties, and do not describe, or expressly or impliedly create, a legal affiliation or partnership, or any responsibility of INTURN for the actions of such third parties.
No agency, partnership, joint venture, or employment is created as a result of these Terms of Service and you do not have any authority of any kind to bind INTURN in any respect whatsoever. You and INTURN agree there are no third party beneficiaries intended under these Terms of Service.
You may not assign, delegate or transfer these Terms of Service or your rights or obligations hereunder, or your User ID, in any way (by operation of law or otherwise) without INTURN’s prior written consent. We may transfer, assign, or delegate these Terms of Service and our rights and obligations without consent.
