If you are a California resident, you expressly waive California Civil Code §1542, which says: "A general release does not extend to claims which the creditor does not know or suspect to exist in his favor at the time of executing the release, which if known by him must have materially affected his settlement with the debtor."

TERMINATION

These UGC Terms of Use are effective until terminated by IN COMMON, with or without notice to you. Those terms and conditions of these UGC Terms of Use that, by their nature, are intended to survive termination (e.g., Limitation of Liability, Indemnity and Release) shall so survive.

ENTIRE AGREEMENT/WAIVER

These UGC Terms of Use are governed by the laws of the State of Florida.  You hereby consent to personal jurisdiction and venue in the state and federal courts located in Miami-Dade, Florida.

These UGC Terms of Use constitute the entire agreement between you and IN COMMON with respect to the User Generated Content. The failure of IN COMMON to exercise or enforce any right or provision of these UGC Terms of Use shall not constitute a waiver of such right or provision. If any provision of these UGC Terms of Use is found to be invalid by any court having competent jurisdiction, the invalidity of such provision shall not affect the validity of the remaining provisions of these UGC Terms of Use, which shall remain in full force and effect. 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 UGC Terms of Use must be filed within one (1) year after such claim or cause of action arose. These UGC Terms of Use and any notice given in electronic form shall be admissible in judicial or administrative proceedings based upon or relating to these UGC Terms of Use to the same extent and subject to the same conditions as other business documents and records originally generated and maintained in printed form.

If requested, you will sign any documentation in such manner and at such location as may be required to protect, perfect or enforce any of the rights you have granted to IN COMMON under these UGC Terms of Use.
