We cannot and do not guarantee or warrant that files available for downloading from the Website will be free of viruses or other destructive code. You are responsible for implementing sufficient procedures and checkpoints to satisfy your particular requirements for anti-virus protection and accuracy of data input and output, and for maintaining a means external to the Website for any reconstruction of any lost data.

Your use of the Website, its content, and any services or items obtained through the Website is at your own risk. The Website, its content, and any services or items obtained through the Website are provided on an “as is” and “as available” basis, without any warranties of any kind, either express or implied. Neither we nor any person associated with us makes any warranty or representation with respect to the completeness, security, reliability, quality, accuracy, or availability of the Website.

Limitation on Liability

 

To the fullest extent provided by law, none of the Company Parties be liable for damages arising out of or in connection with your use, or inability to use, the Website, any websites linked to it, or any content on the Website or such other websites, including any direct, indirect, special, incidental, consequential, or punitive damages, whether caused by tort, breach of contract, or otherwise, even if foreseeable.

Governing Law and Jurisdiction

 

These Terms of Use, and all actions, causes of action, or claims arising out of or relating to them, whether at law, in equity, in contract, in tort, or otherwise, will be governed by Mississippi law (without giving effect to its conflicts of law principles).

 

If either you or we bring a proceeding against the other arising out of or related to these Terms of Use, that person may bring that proceeding in the United States District Court for the Southern District of Mississippi or, if there is no federal subject matter jurisdiction, in any state court of Mississippi sitting in Madison County, and each party hereby submits to the jurisdiction of those courts for purposes of any such proceeding.

 

Waiver and Severability

 

No waiver by us of any term set out in these Terms of Use will be deemed a further or continuing waiver of such term or a waiver of any other term, and any failure by us to assert a right or provision under these Terms of Use will not constitute a waiver of such right or provision.

 

If any provision of these Terms of Use is held to be unenforceable, then that provision will be modified to the minimum extent necessary to make it enforceable unless that modification is not permitted by law, in which case that provision will be disregarded. If an unenforceable provision is modified or disregarded in accordance with this paragraph, then the rest of these Terms of Use will remain in effect as written, and any unenforceable provision will remain as written in any circumstances other than those in which the provision is held to be unenforceable.

 

Entire Agreement

 

The Terms of Use and our Privacy Policy constitute the sole and entire agreement between you and us regarding the Website and supersede all prior and contemporaneous understandings, agreements, representations, and warranties, both written and oral, regarding the Website.
