Some of the Services are supported by advertising revenue and may display advertisements and promotions. These advertisements may be targeted to the content of information stored on the Services, queries made through the Services or other information.
The manner, mode and extent of advertising by The Alliance on the Services are subject to change without specific notice to you.
In consideration for The Alliance granting you access to and use of the Services, you agree that The Alliance may place such advertising on the Services.
The Services may include hyperlinks to other web sites or content or resources. The Alliance may have no control over any websites or resources which are provided by companies or persons other than The Alliance.
You acknowledge and agree that The Alliance is not responsible for the availability of any such external sites or resources, and does not endorse any advertising, products or other materials on or available from such websites or resources.
You acknowledge and agree that The Alliance is not liable for any loss or damage which may be incurred by you as a result of the availability of those external sites or resources, or as a result of any reliance placed by you on the completeness, accuracy or existence of any advertising, products or other materials on, or available from, such websites or resources.
The Alliance may make changes to the Universal Terms or Additional Terms from time to time. When these changes are made, The Alliance will make a new copy of the Universal Terms and any new Additional Terms will be made available to you from within, or through, the affected Services.
You understand and agree that if you use the Services after the date on which the Universal Terms or Additional Terms have changed, The Alliance will treat your use as acceptance of the updated Universal Terms or Additional Terms.
Sometimes when you use the Services, you may (as a result of, or through your use of the Services) use a service or download a piece of software, or purchase goods, which are provided by another person or company. Your use of these other services, software or goods may be subject to separate terms between you and the company or person concerned. If so, the Terms do not affect your legal relationship with these other companies or individuals.
The Terms constitute the whole legal agreement between you and The Alliance and govern your use of the Services (but excluding any services which The Alliance may provide to you under a separate written agreement), and completely replace any prior agreements between you and The Alliance.
You agree that The Alliance may provide you with notices, including those regarding changes to the Terms, by email, regular mail, or postings on the Services.
You agree that if The Alliance does not exercise or enforce any legal right or remedy which is contained in the Terms (or which The Alliance has the benefit of under any applicable law), this will not be taken to be a formal waiver of The Alliance’s rights and that those rights or remedies will still be available to The Alliance.
If any court of law, having the jurisdiction to decide on this matter, rules that any provision of these Terms is invalid, then that provision will be removed from the Terms without affecting the rest of the Terms. The remaining provisions of the Terms will continue to be valid and enforceable.
You acknowledge and agree that each member of the group of companies of which The Alliance is the parent shall be third party beneficiaries to the Terms and that such other companies shall be entitled to directly enforce, and rely upon, any provision of the Terms which confers a benefit on (or rights in favor of) them. Other than this, no other person or company shall be third party beneficiaries to the Terms.
The Terms, and your relationship with The Alliance under the Terms, shall be governed by the laws of the State of Idaho without regard to its conflict of law’s provisions. You and The Alliance agree to submit to the exclusive jurisdiction of the courts located within the county of Gem, Idaho to resolve any legal matter arising from the Terms. Notwithstanding this, you agree that The Alliance shall still be allowed to apply for injunctive remedies (or an equivalent type of urgent legal relief) in any jurisdiction.
