THE INFORMATION ON THIS SITE IS PROVIDED “AS IS” AND ALL WARRANTIES, EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, ARE DISCLAIMED, INCLUDING BUT NOT LIMITED TO THE DISCLAIMER OF ANY WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY, FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE, TITLE AND NONINFRINGEMENT OR ARISING FROM A COURSE OF DEALING, USAGE, OR TRADE PRACTICE.

General

This Agreement, together with any additional terms to which you agree when using particular elements of the APM Site, constitutes the entire and exclusive and final statement of the agreement between you and APM with respect to the subject matter hereof, superseding any prior agreements or negotiations between you and APM with respect to such subject matter. This Agreement and the relationship between you and APM shall be governed by the laws of the State of California as applied to agreements made, entered into and performed entirely in California by California residents, notwithstanding your actual place of residence. All lawsuits arising from or relating to this Agreement must be brought in the Federal or State courts located in Santa Clara County, California, and you hereby irrevocably submit to the exclusive personal jurisdiction of such courts for such purpose. The failure of APM to exercise or enforce any right or provision of this Agreement shall not constitute a waiver of such right or provision. If any provision of this Agreement is found by a court of the competent jurisdiction to be invalid, you nevertheless agree that the court should endeavor to give effect to the intentions of APM and you as reflected in the provision, and that the other provisions of this Agreement remain in full force and effect. The section titles in this Agreement are for convenience only and have no legal or contractual effect. This Agreement shall remain in full force and effect notwithstanding any termination of your use of the APM Site. This Agreement will be interpreted without application of any strict construction in favor of or against you or APM. This Agreement, and any rights and licenses granted hereunder, may not be transferred or assigned by you, but may be assigned by APM without restriction.

APM may, in its sole and absolute discretion, modify the terms of this Agreement from time to time. APM will post a copy of the modified Agreement on the APM Site. If you object to any such modifications your sole recourse shall be to cease using the APM Site. Continued use of the APM Site following any such modifications shall indicate your acknowledgement of such modifications and agreement to be bound by the terms and conditions of such modifications.
