We may, in our sole discretion, terminate the Services as to any Content that we believe in our sole judgment is not in compliance with these Terms.

Such third party links and services shall not be construed as an endorsement, sponsorship, or affiliation. We exercise no control whatsoever over such other non-Blogger Plus websites, services and web-based resources and are not responsible or liable for the availability thereof or the content, advertising, products or other materials thereon, or for any damage or loss incurred or suffered by any user in connection therewith.

You are wholly responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of your Sign-On Credentials and wholly liable for all activities occurring under such Sign-On Credentials. You shall not transfer to any party your Sign-On Credentials, or use the Sign-On Credentials of another, without our prior written consent. You shall immediately notify us at feedback@Blogger Plusmeditation.com of any unauthorized use of Sign-On Credentials or any other breach of security.

In appropriate circumstances, we will also terminate a user's account if the member is determined to be a repeat infringer. 8.5 Governing Law. These Terms, the Services, the App and Content, and any disputes related to or concerning any of the foregoing (including tort as well as contract claims, and whether pre-contractual or extra-contractual) shall be governed by the laws of the State of California, USA. The choice of law rules of any jurisdiction, the United Nations Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods, and the American Law Institute's Principles of the Law of Software Contracts shall not apply and neither party shall invoke any of the foregoing in any proceeding between the parties. You agree that regardless of any statute or law to the contrary, any claim or cause of action arising out of or related to these Terms, the Services, the App or Content, must be filed within one (1) year after such claim or cause of action arose, or be forever barred. 8.6 Dispute Resolution. Any disputes between or claims brought by you or us arising out of or related to these Terms, the Services, the App or Content (including tort as well as contract claims, and whether pre-contractual or extra-contractual, as well as the arbitrability of any disputes) shall be referred to and finally settled by binding arbitration before the International Court of Arbitration in accordance with the Rules of Arbitration of the International Chamber of Commerce ("ICC") in effect at the time of arbitration except as inconsistent with this section. The arbitration shall be conducted by telephone, on-line and/or based solely upon written submissions where no in-person appearance is required. If in-person appearance is required, such hearings shall be held in San Francisco, California. All awards may if necessary be enforced by any court having jurisdiction. The existence of any dispute, the existence or details of the arbitration proceeding, and all related documents, materials, evidence, judgments and awards therein, shall be kept confidential. Except as required by law, no party shall make any public announcements with respect to the proceeding or the award, except as required to enforce same. You and we agree that by entering into this Agreement, the parties hereby waive the right to a trial by jury and agree to only bring claims in an individual capacity and not as a plaintiff or class member in any purported class or representative proceeding. Notwithstanding the foregoing, nothing in this section shall preclude the right and ability to file and maintain at any time an action for recovery of injunctive or provisional relief in any court of competent jurisdiction under the laws applicable thereto. All claims (excluding requests for injunctive or equitable relief) between the parties must be resolved using arbitration in accordance with this section. Should either party file an action contrary to this section, the other party may recover lawyers' fees and costs, provided that the party seeking the award has notified the other party in writing of the improperly filed claim, and the other party has failed to withdraw the claim. 8.7 Assignment. These Terms shall not be assigned, delegated, or transferred by you, in whole or in part, whether voluntary, involuntary, by merger, consolidation, dissolution, sale of assets, or otherwise, without our prior written consent. Any such purported assignment, delegation or transfer without such written consent shall be void. We may at any time assign these Terms without prior consent or notice. These Terms shall be binding on, and inures to the benefit of, the parties and their respective and permitted successors and assigns. 8.8 Injunctive Relief. You acknowledge and agree that breach of these Terms, or any unauthorized use, disclosure or distribution of the Content, may cause irreparable harm to us, the extent of which would be difficult to ascertain, and that we shall be entitled to seek immediate injunctive relief (in addition to any other available remedies), in any court of competent jurisdiction under the applicable laws thereto. 8.9 Miscellaneous. The Terms constitute the entire agreement between you and us and govern your use of the Services, superseding any prior agreements. You may be subject to additional terms and conditions that may apply when you use affiliate or third party content or services. If any provision of the Terms is found by a court of competent jurisdiction to be invalid, the parties nevertheless agree that the court should endeavor to give effect to the parties' intentions as reflected in the provision, and the other provisions of the Terms remain in full force and effect. No waiver of any provision of these Terms shall be deemed a further waiver or continuing waiver or such provision or any other provision, and our failure to assert any right or provision under these Terms shall not constitute a waiver of such right or provision. Nothing herein shall be deemed to create an agency, partnership, joint venture, employee-employer or franchisor-franchisee relationship of any kind between us and any user or other person or entity, nor do these terms extend rights to any third party.End of Terms of Service.
