8. Applicable Law and Jurisdiction
The Web Site (excluding links) is controlled by PILKO and operated by PILKO, in Texas, via third-party ISP (internet services provider) services located in Phoenix, Arizona or other locations as determined by the third-party ISP. Because the Web Site is published on the World Wide Web it is accessible in all fifty states and other countries. As each of these places has laws that may differ from those of Texas or Arizona and from each other, and as you and PILKO both benefit from establishing a predictable legal environment in which to operate, use or otherwise exploit the Web Site, by using the Web Site you and PILKO agree that all matters arising from or relating to the use and operation of the Web Site will be governed by the substantive laws of Texas in the United States of America, without regard to its conflicts of laws principles. You agree that all claims you may have arising from or relating to the operation, use or other exploitation of the Web Site will be heard and resolved in the courts in Harris County, Texas. You consent to the personal jurisdiction of such courts over you, stipulate to the fairness and convenience of proceeding in such courts, and covenant not to assert any object to proceeding in such courts. If you choose to gain access to the Web Site from locations other than Harris County, Texas you will be responsible for compliance with all local laws of any such other location.
No delay or omission by PILKO in exercising any of its rights occurring upon any noncompliance or default by you with respect to any of the terms and conditions of this Agreement will impair any such right or be construed to be a waiver thereof, and a waiver by PILKO of any of the covenants, conditions or agreements to be performed by you will not be construed to be a waiver of any succeeding breach thereof or of any other covenant, condition or agreement hereof. As used in this Agreement, “including” means “including but not limited to.” The captions of this Agreement have been inserted solely for convenience of reference, in no way define or limit the scope or substance of any provision of this Agreement, and will not be considered in interpreting this Agreement. If any provision of this Agreement is found by a court of competent jurisdiction to be invalid or unenforceable, then this Agreement will remain in full force and effect and will be reformed to be valid and enforceable while reflecting the intent of the parties to the greatest extent permitted by law. Except as otherwise expressly provided herein, this Agreement sets forth the entire agreement between you and PILKO regarding its subject matter, and supersedes all prior promises, agreements or representations, whether written or oral, regarding such subject matter.
