TERM AND TERMINATION
Term. These Terms are effective upon your acceptance and will continue in full force until terminated.
ZipHub Termination. You agree that we, in our sole discretion, may terminate your use of the Services or any part thereof and discard any Feedback you provide without prior notice to you. You agree that we may immediately suspend your access to the Services or any part thereof in order to conduct an investigation in the event it believes you have violated these Terms or if we determine that you are a repeat infringer of a third party’s intellectual property or other rights. We may also, in our sole discretion and at any time, discontinue providing the Services, any part thereof, with or without notice. In addition to any other method of termination or suspension provided for in these Terms, we reserve the right to terminate these Terms at any time and for any reason without prior notice to you. Further, you agree that we will not be liable to you or any third-party for any termination or suspension of your access to the Services or any part thereof.
Your Termination. You may terminate these Terms at any time by immediately discontinuing all access to the Services and immediately notifying ZipHub about your request for termination in writing so that ZipHub can ensure removal of your advertisements on its site. Termination or cancellation of these Terms will not affect any right or relief to which we may be entitled at law or in equity.
Effect of Termination. Upon termination of these Terms for any reason, you must terminate all use of the Services and any information or materials provided thereby, and provide notification to ZipHub as indicated in Your Termination above. In the event of termination, you will not be entitled to any refund of any fees or other charges, if any, paid in connection with these Terms.
CONSENT TO DO BUSINESS ELECTRONICALLY
We use and rely upon electronic records and electronic signatures for the execution and delivery of these Terms and any other agreements, undertakings, notices, disclosures or other documents, communications or information of any type sent or received in accordance with these Terms and in performing our obligations and exercising our rights under these Terms. Neither you nor ZipHub will prevent or inhibit in any way the other party from printing, saving, or otherwise storing electronic records sent or otherwise made available to the other party. You agree not to contest the authorization for, or validity or enforceability of, electronic records and electronic signatures, or the admissibility of copies thereof, under any applicable law relating to whether certain agreements, files, or electronic records are to be in writing or signed by you to be bound thereby. You will bear your own costs and expenses in conducting business electronically, and will undertake all steps necessary, including software, hardware, and other equipment upgrades and purchases, in order to be able to conduct business electronically.
You understand and expressly agree that you and ZipHub are independent contractors and not agents or employees of the other party. Neither you nor ZipHub has any right, power, or authority to act or create any obligation, express or implied, on behalf of the other party.
GOVERNING LAW AND OTHER MISCELLANEOUS TERMS
These Terms will be governed by and construed, interpreted, and enforced in accordance with the laws of the State of Nevada, without reference to its conflicts or choice of law principles. You agree that the sole and exclusive jurisdiction and venue for any and all disputes arising under these Terms will be in any court located in or having jurisdiction over Clark County, Nevada. You irrevocably submit and consent to the personal jurisdiction of such courts. You agree that breach of the provisions of these Terms would cause irreparable harm and significant injury to us which would be both difficult to ascertain and which would not be compensable by damages alone. As such, you agree that we have the right to enforce the provisions of these Terms by injunction (without necessity of posting bond), specific performance, or other equitable relief without prejudice to any other rights and remedies we may have for your breach of these Terms. These Terms constitute the entire agreement between you and ZipHub with respect to the subject matter hereof and supersede all prior agreements, both oral and written, with respect to the subject matter hereof. Our failure to enforce any provision of these Terms will not be deemed to be a waiver of our right to enforce them. If any term or provision of these Terms will be held to be invalid, illegal, or unenforceable, the remaining terms and provisions of these Terms will remain in full force and effect, and such invalid, illegal, or unenforceable term or provision will be deemed not to be part of these Terms. You may not assign, transfer, or sell (voluntarily or by operation of law) your rights or obligations under these Terms, nor delegate your duties hereunder to any other person, without our prior written consent. Any purported assignment without our consent will be void and will constitute a breach of these Terms. We may assign these Terms or delegate or subcontract our obligations under these Terms at any time. Neither you nor ZipHub will be liable for inadequate performance to the extent caused by a condition (natural disaster, act of war or terrorism, riot, labor condition, governmental action, and Internet disturbance) that was beyond either party’s reasonable control. The provisions of these Terms that by their content are intended to survive the expiration or termination of these Terms, including, without limitation, provisions governing ownership and use of intellectual property, representations, disclaimers, warranties, liability, indemnification, governing law, jurisdiction, venue, remedies, rights after termination, and interpretation of these Terms, will survive the expiration or termination of these Terms for their full statutory period.
