Certain Sites may be subject to additional requirements.

The Service reserves the right to withhold approval of any public announcement in its sole discretion. Without limitation, any breach of Site Owner's obligation regarding public announcements shall be a material breach of the EBSA.

3.1.3 Site Owner represents and warrants that it has full power and authority under all relevant laws and regulations:

The EBSA and the relationship between Site Owner and the Service Provider shall be governed by the laws of the state of Texas without regard to its conflict of law provisions. Site Owner and the Service provider agree to submit to the personal and exclusive jurisdiction of the Superior Court of the State of Texas for the County of Harris or the United States District Court for Southwest Texas. The Service Provider's failure to exercise or enforce any right or provision of the EBSA shall not constitute a waiver of such right or provision. If any provision of the EBSA 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 agree that the other provisions of the EBSA remain in full force and effect. Site Owner agrees that regardless of any statute or law to the contrary, any claim or cause of action arising out of or related to use of the Service or the EBSA must be filed within one (1) year after such claim or cause of action arose, or be forever barred. The section titles in the EBSA are for convenience only and have no legal or contractual effect.
