If you object to any amended Terms, your sole recourse shall be to discontinue the use of the Site upon your first visit to the Site after such an amendment has been posted.
The Company is involved in providing leading edge technology to its users. Any person using the Site acknowledges that technologies are rapidly changing and that the Company must be able to strictly limit its liability according to these Terms in order to provide such leading edge technology to its users. Your use of the Site acknowledges your agreement with these Terms including all of the terms that limit the Company’s liability in any fashion. If you do not agree with this limitation of liability and these Terms, your sole remedy is to not use the Site.
ACCESS TO THIS SITE
The Company reserves the right and has absolute discretion to enforce the Terms. The Company may, in its sole discretion, immediately terminate the Terms or any services related to the Site with respect to you, or generally cease offering or deny access to the Site or any portion thereof, at any time for any reason without notice or liability to you or any third party. This Site may become unavailable due to maintenance or malfunction of computer equipment or for other reasons and could result in damages to your computer systems or operations. You shall be solely responsible for ensuring that any information or content obtained from this Site does not contain any virus or other computer software code or subroutine designed to disable, erase, impair or otherwise damage your systems, software or data. Without limitation, the Company also reserves the right to report any activity (including the disclosure of appropriate data or merchant information) that it suspects may violate any law or regulation to appropriate law enforcement officials, regulators, or other appropriate third parties. The Company also may cooperate with appropriate law enforcement agencies to assist in the investigation and prosecution of any illegal conduct. If you want to report any violations of these guidelines, please contact the Company.
Membership and Registration
You must hold an active law license to register with the Site as a Member. If you are an owner or employee of a law firm (a “Firm”), then all licensed attorneys of the Firm should register with the Site. There is a fifty percent (50%) discount for Subscription Fees offered to each attorney within a Firm after the first attorney within a Firm registers with the Site to promote compliance with this rule. The first attorney of a Firm to register with the Site must register as the administrator (“Administrator”) of the Firm. The Administrator has certain access to Firm information (i.e. access roles, payment information, etc.) and the role of Administrator may only be changed online with the permission of the Administrator. If the Administrator ceases to work for the Firm and the Firm wishes to change the Administrator on the Firm’s account, the Firm should request the Administrator to change the Administrator role to another attorney designated by the Firm. Should the Administrator not comply with this request, the Firm must contact the Site for assistance.
If you access our Site, you agree to accept responsibility for all activities that occur under your account or password, and agree that you will not sell, transfer, or assign your membership or any membership rights. You are responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of your password and for restricting access to your computer so that others may not access our Site using your name in whole or in part. By registering as a Member, you agree that the Company may contact you in any fashion including, but not limited to, mail, fax, email, or telephone. You also grant permission to the Company to provide for marketing emails sent from the Company or an entity contracting with the Company.
If a competing site to the Company is developed by another entity, you may not solicit Members of the Company to terminate, surrender or otherwise leave the Site or transfer business transacted on the Site to such a competing site. You may not transfer any business begun on the Site to any competing site and you may not contact Members of the Site to announce that you are transacting business on a competing site.
You must notify the Company immediately of any breach of security or unauthorized use of your account. Although the Company will not be liable for your losses caused by any unauthorized use of your account, you may be liable for the losses of the Company or others due to such unauthorized use.
The Company’s product shall be considered to be in Beta format until the Company announces that the product is no longer in Beta format. Beta format for technology products often requires swift and substantial changes to the product, with customer feedback crucial to the success of the product. To remain on the leading edge of technology providers, changes in Beta format products are often delivered with little to no internal testing. Thus, the Site may experience downtimes, slower traffic, erroneous displays or other technological malfunctions. As a Member on the Site, you agree that the Company has NO LIABILITY for such errors or malfunctions.
You agree not to use the Site to: (a) violate any local, state, national, or international law or regulation; (b) transmit any material that is abusive, harassing, tortious, defamatory, vulgar, pornographic, obscene, libelous, invasive of another's privacy, hateful, or racially, ethnically, or otherwise objectionable; (c) transmit any unsolicited or unauthorized advertising, promotional materials, junk mail, spam, chain letters, pyramid schemes, or any other form of solicitation; (d) transmit any material that contains adware, malware, spyware, software viruses, or any other computer code, files, or programs designed to interrupt, destroy, or limit the functionality of any computer software or hardware or telecommunications equipment; (e) stalk, harass, or harm another individual, including revealing the identity of any fellow Member or Provider on the Site; (f) impersonate any person or entity, or otherwise misrepresent your identity or affiliation with a person or entity; (g) use any "robot," "spider," “deep link,” "rover," "scraper," or any other data-mining technology or automatic or manual process to monitor, cache, frame, mask, extract data from, copy, or distribute any data from the Site, our network or databases, or attempt to gain unauthorized access to any portion or feature of the Site or any other systems or networks connected to the Site; or (h) interfere with or disrupt the Site or servers on our networks, or disobey any requirements, procedures, policies, or regulations of networks connected to the Site; (i) probe, scan, or test the vulnerability of the Site or any network connected to the Site, nor breach the security or authentication measures on the Site or any network connected to the Site; (j) reverse look-up, trace, or seek to trace any information on any other user of or visitor to the Site, (k) take any action that imposes an unreasonable or disproportionately large load on the infrastructure of the Site or the Company’s systems or networks or any systems or networks connected to the Site; (l)
se any meta tags or any other "hidden text" utilizing the name or trademarks of LawNexa, ProXchange Legal or ProXchange without our express written consent
or (m) forge headers or otherwise manipulate identifiers in order to disguise the origin of any message or transmittal you send to the Company or anyone on or through the Site. WITHOUT LIMITING THE GENERALITY OF THE FOREGOING, COPYING OR REPRODUCING ANY SERVICES, PROGRAMS, PRODUCTS, OR MATERIALS PROVIDED BY PROXCHANGE TO ANY OTHER SERVER OR LOCATION FOR FURTHER REPRODUCTION OR REDISTRIBUTION IS EXPRESSLY PROHIBITED.
A high speed Internet connection is required for proper transmission of the Site. You are responsible for procuring and maintaining the network connections that connect your network to the Site, including, but not limited to, "browser" software that supports protocols used by the Company, and to follow procedures for accessing services that support such protocols. We are not responsible for notifying you of any upgrades, fixes or enhancements to any such software or for any compromise of data, including Site data, transmitted across computer networks or telecommunications facilities (including but not limited to the Internet) which are not owned, operated or controlled by the Company. We assume no responsibility for the reliability or performance of any connections as described in this section.
The Company believes that it falls under the purview of lawyer referral services or qualifying providers as defined by various States Bar rules. While such rules were enacted to address services generally made available to the consumer (LawNexa does not make its services available to the consumer, but rather to the lawyer), it is the Company’s understanding that the rules are broad enough to include services offered by LawNexa. BY REGISTERING WITH THE SITE, YOU AGREE WITH US THAT THE COMPANY’S SERVICES ARE ALLOWABLE UNDER YOUR STATE BAR (OR COURT INTERPRETATION) RULES. If you do not agree that the Company’s services are allowable under your State Bar (or court interpretation) rules, you should not register with the Site. Registration with the Site precludes you from asserting any claims against the Company for violation of State Bar rules regarding the availability of lawyer referral services or qualifying providers in your State.
In addition to our rights as set forth elsewhere in the Terms, we reserve the right, in our reasonable discretion, to temporarily suspend your access to and use of the Site: (a) during planned downtime for upgrades and maintenance to the Site (of which we will use commercially reasonable efforts to notify you in advance through the Site) (“Planned Downtime”); (b) during any unavailability caused by circumstances beyond our reasonable control, such as, but not limited to, acts of God, acts of government, acts of terror or civil unrest, technical failures beyond our reasonable control (including, without limitation, inability to access the Internet), or acts undertaken by third parties, including without limitation, distributed denial of service attacks; or (c) if we suspect or detect any malicious software connected to your account or use of the Site by you.
The Company offers access to various services to assist an attorney in legal matters such as expert witnesses, nurse practitioners, court reporters, etc. All non-attorney members in these areas create a profile of their experience and services. All such information is self-reported by the non-attorney member and the Company MAKES NO REPRESENTATION AS TO THE TRUTH, ACCURACY OR COMPLETENESS OF THE INFORMATION REPORTED. YOU SPECIFICALLY AGREE THAT YOU ARE REQUIRED TO MAKE ALL JUDGMENTS OF A NON-ATTORNEY’S ABILITY TO ASSIST YOU IN A CASE OR MATTER AND AGREE TO INDEMNIFY AND HOLD THE COMPANY HARMLESS AGAINST ALL CLAIMS BROUGHT AGAINST THE COMPANY BY YOU OR ANY THIRD PARTY FOR ACTS OF THE NON-ATTORNEY FOUND ON THE SITE.
Actual or attempted unauthorized use of the Site may result in criminal and/or civil prosecution, including, without limitation, punishment under the Computer Fraud and Abuse Act of 1986. The Company reserves the right to view, monitor, and record activity on the Site without notice or permission from you. Any information obtained by monitoring, reviewing, or recording is subject to review by law enforcement organizations in connection with investigation or prosecution of possible criminal activity on the Site. The Company will also comply with all court orders involving requests for such information.
The Site is hosted in the United States. If you are a Member accessing the Site from the European Union, Asia, or any other region with laws or regulations governing personal data collection, use, and disclosure, that differ from United States laws, please be advised that through your continued use of the Site, which is governed by U.S. law, the Privacy Notice, and the Terms, you are transferring your information to the United States and you consent to that transfer. The Company may maintain commercially reasonable administrative, physical and technical safeguards to protect the security, confidentiality and integrity of Site data. These safeguards may include encryption of Site data in transmission.
The Company, in its sole discretion, may post advertisements of third parties on the Site. Your correspondence or any other dealings with advertisers found on the Site are solely between you and such advertiser. You agree that the Company shall not be responsible for any loss or damage of any sort incurred as a result of any such dealings or as the result of the presence of such advertisers on this Site. Moreover, the Company shall not be responsible or liable for the statements or conduct of any third party on this Site.
We are committed to protecting the privacy of children. You should be aware that this Site is not intended or designed to attract children under the age of 13. We do not collect personally identifiable information from any person we actually know is a child under the age of 13.
Member Rules & Regulations
The following Member rules and regulations are in addition to all other rules, terms and regulations contained in the Terms.
The Site contains certain requirements for you to list yourself as a provider of services in any legal practice area. Each attorney may list up to six (6) different practice areas that they want to receive referrals in, so long as they meet the requirements. Requirements to list yourself as a provider of legal services in any practice area include maintaining an errors & omission insurance policy with minimum limits of $1,000,000 per incident, maintaining a minimum platform rating score of 3.0, maintaining a valid State Bar license (in the State for which you accept referrals for legal services), and meeting the legal and ethical requirements for the services provided (including any additional requirements purported by the State Bar of the State in which the legal services are provided). If you cease to meet the requirements to provide services on the Site, you must remove the areas of practice for which you no longer meet the requirements. While the Company indicates these minimal service provider requirements and attempts to seek compliance by all attorneys on the Site, the Company is not responsible for lack of any attorney compliance with service provider requirements for any reason, including, but not limited to, errors, incomplete information, fraud or other reporting or compliance monitoring issues.
The LawNexa matching process seeks to bring together two attorneys to meet the needs of the clients. The attorney making the referral is noted as the Referring Attorney and the attorney receiving the referral (whether or not such referral is accepted or declined) is noted as the Accepting Attorney.
Upon the selection of an Accepting Attorney by a Referring Attorney to receive a referral, the client of the Referring Attorney shall receive an email requesting authorization to transmit certain pertinent client information (generally client contact information and the type of case) to an attorney on LawNexa. The Accepting Attorney shall only be revealed the pertinent client information upon the affirmative authorization of the client of the Referring Attorney. If the client of the Referring Attorney declines authorization, the Referring Attorney shall be notified of the declination. Upon authorization by the client of the Referring Attorney, the Accepting Attorney shall be notified of the referral and shall be charged the fee associated with receiving a referral (“Referral Lead Fee”) that is posted on the Site. The Referral Lead Fee is NOT a guarantee that the Accepting Attorney shall receive or accept the client, but only a fee for receiving the lead. The Referral Lead Fee is not refundable in any circumstance including, but not limited to, failure to pass conflict of interest test, failure to pass due diligence test, failure of the client to pay legal fees, outcome of the case, or any other reason. The Referral Lead Fee is not a sharing in the legal fee by the Company and is paid regardless of whether legal services were ever rendered.
Many technology sites allow for user feedback as it may be essential to the decision making process of hiring, purchasing or otherwise engaging another user. For this reason, the Company attempts to assist its Members by offering Member feedback on referrals made or received on the Site. Members are encouraged to provide honest feedback, but should realize that negative feedback or low platform scores may negatively impact a Member on the Site. For this reason, the Company offers an appeal process for low ratings. The appeal process should only be used when a rating is given that is less than 50% of the Member’s current rating (i.e. if a Member has a current rating of 4.7, the Member may not appeal a rating of 3.0, but may appeal a rating of 2.0). The appeal process is initiated by the Member receiving the low rating in question. The Member receiving the low rating is asked to provide additional information to the Member who gave the low rating that may assist the Member who had given the low rating to reevaluate the prior low rating. The Member who gave the previous low rating may then amend that rating (only upwards) or keep the same rating. Once the Member amends or keeps the prior rating, that rating is permanent. The only recourse that the Member who received the low rating has against the Member who gave the low rating is to discontinue making referrals to or receiving referrals from that Member.
The Company may attempt to, but is under no obligation, to resolve disputes between Members. Certain platform dispute resolution exists in the case of negative feedback. The rules surrounding feedback and the appeal of any platform rating (contained in the Terms) are final and shall not be reversed by the Company except under extreme circumstances. All Members acknowledge that the Company shall have no liability to them for any dispute resolution between Members. However, should the Company undertake dispute resolution between any parties for any reason, the findings of the Company shall be final and binding upon all parties and the Company shall have no liability for these findings to any party.
You grant the Company a worldwide, perpetual, irrevocable, royalty-free license to use and incorporate into our services any suggestion, enhancement request, recommendation, correction or other feedback provided by you.
The sharing of legal fees between legal parties is governed by the State Bar in which the legal services are provided. Members may wish to share legal fees in some cases where the sharing of fees is allowable. The Company does NOT provide for rules or methods in how parties share legal fees. The Company provides an input field in the referral process that allows the Referring Attorney to indicate that they are interested in sharing in the legal fee. This is ONLY an indication of interest in sharing in the legal fee and does NOT provide any guarantee of such sharing of the legal fees. Members are encouraged to work out the provisions of legal fee sharing outside the Site through standard legal arrangements. THE COMPANY SHALL HAVE NO LIABILITY TO ANY PARTY FOR THE SHARING OR NON-SHARING OF LEGAL FEES BETWEEN THE MEMBERS.
The Site only works properly when Members “play fair.” In that regard, no Member may communicate (verbal or written) with any other Member any scheme, idea, method or other means by which to lessen or dilute any current or future Referral Lead Fee or any other fee paid or owing to the Company. Members specifically acknowledge that such actions may cause irreparable harm to the Company and that the Company may seek all legal remedies available to it against the Member.
Members of the Site obtain special knowledge regarding the operations of the Site. Therefore, all Members specifically agree that they shall not participate in any early-testing, beta-testing or other similar form of testing of any competing site that may be formed. While the Company believes in healthy competition, it does not believe that it would be beneficial for the Company or its Members for trade secrets and other intellectual property of the Site to be transmitted to competing sites by its Members and such transmission of any trade secrets or intellectual property of the Site to any person is strictly prohibited. Members specifically acknowledge that such actions may cause irreparable harm to the Company and that the Company may seek all legal remedies available to it against any Member who transmits such prohibited information. Please report any possible violations of the Terms to the address listed in the Notice section.
The Company may be required to report to a State Bar or other regulatory body the current license status of its Members. You agree that the Company may report your license status to any State Bar or other regulatory body as required. The Company may rely on State Bar sites or other sites for information regarding your current license status. You specifically waive any rights against the Company, its employees, directors, members, investors or officers for any factual differences of license status that the Company, in good faith, viewed on a site and reported to a State Bar or other regulatory body. You also specifically waive any rights against the Company, its employees, directors, members, investors or officers for any factual differences of license status that the Company by mistake reported to a State Bar or other regulatory body. Should the Company have mistakenly reported incorrect information to a State Bar or other regulatory body, you should notify the Company at email@example.com and report the error. The Company will follow up with the State Bar or other regulatory body, in a timely fashion, as it receives corroborating evidence from the State Bar or other regulatory body that no action was taken against your license.

You acknowledge and agree that the Company shall own and have the unrestricted right to use, publish, in electronic form and otherwise, distribute and exploit any and all information that you post or otherwise publish on this Site ("Submissions") unless specifically indicated to the contrary by the Company.

Members may post certain information regarding their clientele that may be viewed by other Members. All clientele information posted must be non-specific to the client unless the Member has received permission from the client to post such other client specific information. Members may not post the name, address or any financial information of any client without the permission of the client. Certain non-identifying information such as client industry may be posted, but the Company requires all Members to have permission from all clients for whom they post any information. It is the responsibility of each Member to make certain that any client information posted is permissible by the client. Each Member posting any information about their client is responsible to comply with all Federal, State and other regulatory body rulings regarding the disclosure of client information including, but not limited to, compliance with IRC Sections 6713 and 7216 and all corresponding Treasury Regulations and other authoritative rulings.
The ‘engine’ of the Site is the matching algorithm which requires the input of search criteria for matching attorneys and the corresponding indication of the providing of legal services by other Members. You agree that all information entered into the search criteria or the service practice areas that you want to receive referrals in shall be true, correct and complete to the best of your knowledge. During the search process, a Referring Attorney may indicate whether they wish to partake in the sharing of legal fees. This indication is NOT an agreement between the parties, but rather an indication that the Referring Attorney may be interested in sharing the legal fee. The parties must contract outside of the Site between the parties regarding the sharing of legal fees and the Company expressly disclaims any liability in legal fee sharing between the parties. While the Company may provide helpful links to assist you in determining whether legal fee sharing may be available on a particular engagement, the Company makes no representation regarding the legality or ethical applications of the payment or receipt of any shared legal fee or referral fee. You further agree that it is your sole responsibility to determine whether legal fee sharing may be paid by you or received by you for each and every engagement. YOU AGREE THAT THE COMPANY HAS NO LIABILITY FOR THE PROPER DETERMINATION OF WHETHER LEGAL FEE SHARING MAY OR MAY NOT BE PAID. If you are in receipt of a shared legal fee or referral fee or paying a shared legal fee or referral fee, you further agree to abide by any disclosure requirements to the client that may be required under law or ethics.
It is your responsibility to ensure that sufficient credit is available on your registered credit card for use in on-time payments. Notices of declinations of credit cards are a nuisance for all involved. You are responsible for all overdraft, declination or other fees from your own banking institution and will be assessed a payment denial fee of $29 by the Company for each instance that payment is rejected for any reason. Should the Company receive a denial of payment from your credit card issuer for any reason, we will notify you by email and resubmit the charge the following business day. It is your responsibility to make sure that sufficient credit is available or that you have placed a new credit card on file before that time. Should the Company receive a second declination of payment from your credit card issuer, your account will be suspended until the time that payment has been received. Continued denials of payment are cause for expulsion from the Site.
To notify us of suspected errors regarding online payments or receipts, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.. We attempt to resolve all payment and receipt queries by the end of the next business day. Please indicate “payment dispute” in the subject line of your email and provide your name, firm name, daytime phone number and a brief description of the suspected payment or receipt error when notifying us. Please be careful not to include any of your PCI within the reporting email.

The Company promotes certain requirements for professionals to be admitted to a category of service as a provider of services. These requirements are contained in the registration process to be listed as a provider of legal services in a particular service category. These requirements are for such things as professional standards, licenses, and insurance coverage. Additionally, the Company utilizes a rating system to help Members determine which other Members that they would like to send referrals to or receive referrals from. THESE REQUIREMENTS DO NOT GUARANTEE THAT ANOTHER MEMBER WILL DELIVER A SERVICE TO ANY PARTICULAR PROFESSIONAL STANDARD OR PROVIDE FOR ANY PARTICULAR RESULT. YOU MAY NOT AGREE WITH THE OTHER MEMBER’S END PRODUCT OR SERVICE. YOU TAKE FULL RESPONSIBILITY FOR YOUR ACCEPTANCE OF A MEMBER TO PROVIDE SERVICES TO YOU OR YOUR CLIENT. THE COMPANY DOES NOT GUARANTEE ANY RESULTS, YOUR SATISFACTION OR ANY OTHER FORM OF ENDORSEMENT FOR THE SERVICES PROVIDED BY ANY MEMBER ON THE SITE.
DISCLAIMER OF WARRANTIES AND DAMAGES; LIMITS OF LIABILITY; INDEMNIFICATION
The Company operates in a fashion as to provide leading-edge technology to its Members. The technology industry is rapidly evolving, highly susceptible to security issues and very difficult to maintain current trends and safety concerns. For this and other reasons, you acknowledge the necessity for the Company to disclaim all warranties and damages and to severely limit its liability to Members and all other interested parties. Any claims that you may bring against the Company shall be solely against the Company and not be enforceable against any other affiliated entity, any officer, any director or any employee of the Company.
The Company provides referral and other services to the legal industry. As a Member, you generally decide your level of involvement in any particular case and whether or not you wish to share in the legal fees, whether or not co-counsel is required. Participation in a case most generally brings with it the concept of legal liability for malpractice. The Company strictly does not provide any reference or guarantee that your minimal involvement in any case does not constitute participation in a case sufficient to limit your legal malpractice in the case or for any other legal recourse. You specifically hold the Company harmless for any suit, claim or other action pertaining to your involvement in a case referred by you or to you on the Site. You also agree to promptly pay any damages or costs (including legal fees) incurred by the Company in defending its actions for claims or other actions brought against the Company from a party that you participated in the legal services from a referral on the Site.

You will be charged the stated Subscription Fees upon your registration to the Site and your monthly Subscription Fees will renew on the same date each month thereafter, unless a calendar month does not have that particular date in the month, in which case you will be charged on the last day of the calendar month. You will be charged the Referral Lead Fee upon our sending of an email and/or platform notification to you of a referral to you. The Referral Lead Fee is charged regardless of outcome and whether or not you take a case with the referred client and even if you have a conflict of interest with the referred client and cannot accept the referred client. If you or your firm’s credit card is denied as we attempt to charge it, or if you do not update payment information upon our request, in addition to our other remedies, we may suspend or terminate access to and use of the Site by you. No refunds or credits for Subscription Fees, Referral Lead Fees or other fees or payments will be provided to you for any reason. Your membership subscription is automatically renewed each month (so long as you are a Member in good standing and have not been suspended or terminated for any reason) unless you specifically request a termination of service. You may request a termination of service by notifying the Company of your desire to terminate use of the Site. This is accomplished by sending an email to email@example.com.

We provide priority support via email only to paid Members at firstname.lastname@example.org. The Company may initiate a telephone call or other contact with you, but does not accept questions or comments via any method other than by email. We do not guarantee a specific response time and we do not provide a service level agreement. In general, we operate weekdays from Monday to Friday, 9am to 5pm Eastern time and your email will usually receive a response within one working day, but may take longer when we experience high traffic loads or during public holidays. Priority support is offered on a per-Member basis. This means that we may limit the amount of support we provide to an individual customer. Our priority support offered to Members is generally limited to 10 emails to our support team per year. We reserve the right to decline further support or charge for additional support beyond the 10 emails. We also reserve the right to immediately terminate service to the Site without a refund if a customer is insulting or abusive to our support team. We endeavor to provide you with excellent customer service and we have included this clause to protect our support team and to prevent one single Member from overloading our support system or abusing our services, thereby impacting the quality of support that other Members receive.

Should any successor not agree to fulfill the obligations of the Site pursuant to the Terms, the Company agrees that you become eligible for a refund of one month’s Subscription Fees and you agree that this is your only remedy against the Company for failure of any successor to fulfill the obligations of the Site. You also agree that after thirty (30) days, the Company shall have no obligation for the acts of any successor to the Site. Should you qualify for a refund of one month’s Subscription Fees, you shall request the refund by contacting email@example.com. and specifically referencing this section of the Terms. All automatic renewals and all payment of Subscription Fees and Referral Lead Fees and any other fees of the Site may continue with any successor or a successor may institute its own fee structure. Subject to the foregoing restrictions, the Terms will be fully binding upon, inure to the benefit of and be enforceable by the parties and their respective successors and assigns.

Notwithstanding the foregoing, additional terms may apply to certain features, functionality, or services of the Site (“Additional Terms”) and we will notify you of such Additional Terms prior to the activation of these features, functionality, or services and the activation of these features, functionality, or services in your account will be considered acceptance of the Additional Terms.

If you object to any amended Terms, your sole recourse shall be to discontinue the use of the Site upon your first visit to the Site after such an amendment has been posted. Our failure to enforce at any time any provision of the Terms does not constitute a waiver of that provision or of any other provision of the Terms.
The invalidity or unenforceability of any particular part or provision of the Terms shall not affect the other provisions hereof (and portions thereof), and the remaining parts and provisions of the Terms which can be separated from the invalid, unenforceable provision or provisions shall continue in full force and effect to the greatest extent possible. Both Company and you hereby confer upon any court of competent authority the power to replace any such invalid or unenforceable provision or provisions with such other enforceable and valid provision or provisions as shall be as near as may be possible to the original provision or provisions in form and effect.
Failure to insist on strict performance of any of the provisions contained within the Terms will not operate as a waiver of any subsequent default or failure of performance. No waiver by the Company of any right under the Terms will be deemed to be either a waiver of any other right or provision or a waiver of that same right or provision at any other time.
