The arbitrator will have authority to award temporary, interim, or permanent injunctive relief or relief providing for specific performance of these Terms of Use, but only to the extent necessary to provide relief warranted by the individual claim before the arbitrator. The award rendered by the arbitrator may be confirmed and enforced in any court having jurisdiction thereof. Notwithstanding any of the foregoing, nothing in these Terms of Use will preclude you from bringing issues to the attention of federal, state, or local agencies and, if the law allows, they can seek relief against us for you.

These Terms of Use will be governed by and construed under the laws of the United States (including federal arbitration law) and the State of California, without regard to conflicts of law principles.

These Terms of Use are effective unless and until terminated by either you or The Study. You may terminate these Terms of Use at any time, provided that you discontinue any further use of the Study Sites. We also may terminate these Terms of Use at any time and may do so immediately without notice, and deny you access to the Study Sites, if in our sole discretion you fail to comply with any term or provision of these Terms of Use. Upon any termination of these Terms of Use by either you or The Study, you must promptly destroy all Materials and other Content downloaded or otherwise obtained from the Study Sites, as well as all copies of such Content, whether made under these Terms of Use or otherwise. Upon any such termination, you must destroy all Content obtained from the Site and all copies thereof. The provisions of these Terms of Use concerning Site security, prohibited activities, copyrights, trademarks, user submissions, disclaimer, limitation of liability, indemnity and jurisdictional issues shall survive any such termination. You agree that if your use of the Site is terminated pursuant to these Terms of Use, you will not attempt to use the Site under any name, real or assumed, and further agree that if you violate this restriction after being terminated, you will indemnify and hold The Study harmless from any and all liability that The Study may incur therefore.

The following sections will survive any termination of these Terms of Use: “Definitions”, “Your use of the Site” (excluding the rights granted to you in that Section) “Intellectual Property” (excluding the rights granted to you in that Section), “Information and Materials”,”Third Party Interactions”, “Indemnification,” “Termination,” “Disclaimer,” “Limitation of Liability,” “Arbitration and Governing Law,” and “General”.


General

These Terms of Use represent the complete agreement and understanding between you and The Study and supersede all prior agreements and representations between the parties with respect to the subject matter of these Terms of Use. These Terms of Use do not, and shall not be construed to, create any partnership, joint venture, employer-employee, agency, or franchisor-franchisee relationship between you and The Study. Headings used in these Terms of Use are for reference purposes only and in no way define or limit the scope of the section. If any provision of these Terms of Use is held to be unenforceable for any reason, such provision will be reformed only to the extent necessary to make it enforceable and the other terms of these Terms of Use will remain in full force and effect. The failure of The Study to act with respect to a breach of these Terms of Use by you or others does not constitute a waiver and will not limit The Study's rights with respect to such breach or any subsequent breaches. You may not assign, transfer, or sublicense any or all of your rights or obligations under these Terms of Use without our express prior written consent. We may assign, transfer, or sublicense any or all of our rights or obligations under these Terms of Use without restriction. Any use of the term “including” or variations thereof in these Terms of Use shall be construed as if followed by the phrase “without limitation.” Notices to you (including notices of changes to this these Terms of Use) may be made via posting to the Study Sites or by e-mail (including in each case via links), or by regular mail. When you visit the Study Sites or send emails to us, you are communicating with us electronically. You consent to receive communications from us electronically. We will communicate with you by email or by posting notices on the Study Sites. You agree that all agreements, notices, disclosures and other communications that we provide to you electronically satisfy any legal requirement that such communications be in writing. You further agree that any notices provided by us electronically are deemed to be given and received on the date we transmit any such electronic communication as described in these Terms of Use. Without limitation, a printed version of these Terms of Use and of any notice given in electronic form shall be admissible in judicial or administrative proceedings based upon or relating to these Terms of Use to the same extent and subject to the same conditions as other business documents and records originally generated and maintained in printed form.
