Some jurisdictions do not allow the exclusion or limitation of incidental or consequential damages, or limitation of liability for certain claims or causes of action, so the above limitations or exclusions may not apply to you in these jurisdictions.
16. Special Admonitions for International Use
A. Your Internet use may be global; thus, you agree to comply with all local rules and laws regarding your access and use of any Sites or Services through the Internet, and without limitation, you will comply with all applicable laws regarding obscene and indecent content and transmitting technical data exported from Australia or the country in which you reside.
B. With respect to any personal data (as defined under the General Data Protection Regulation [GDPR] [EU] 2016/679 and any other applicable data protection legislation) (“Personal Data”) which PageOptimizer Pro processes on your behalf, PageOptimizer Pro does not process any Personal Data as a part of its core function. Thus, PageOptimizer Pro is more typically the Data Controller and is not a Data Processor to Personal Data in which you are a Data Controller. However, in the unlikely event that you believe PageOptimizer Pro is a Data Processor to you as a Data Controller, please contact PageOptimizer Pro at firstname.lastname@example.org
, and PageOptimizer Pro can consider if it is necessary under applicable law for you to appoint PageOptimizer Pro as a Data Processor pursuant to an appropriate Data Processor agreement/addendum.
Upon termination of Services, any payment liabilities owed to PageOptimizer Pro and accrued prior to the effective date of the termination will survive.

18. Miscellaneous Clauses
A. Changes to Services. PageOptimizer Pro may change any Sites or Services from time to time, with or without notice, by adding, modifying, suspending, or discontinuing features of such Sites or Services. Your access to and use of any Sites or Services depends on you complying with any applicable laws or this TOS.
B. Force Majeure. Neither you nor PageOptimizer Pro will be liable to the other for any delay or failure to perform any obligation under this TOS if the delay or failure is due to circumstances beyond such party’s reasonable control. The affected party will notify the other party of such event and resume performance as soon as reasonably practicable.
D. Notices. If PageOptimizer Pro must send you additional information regarding the TOS or any Sites or Services, you consent to receiving this information electronically. PageOptimizer Pro may provide required information to you by email at any address you registered with the Sites or Services or via posting on the Sites or Services. Notices provided to you via email are effective on the transmission date. You will provide PageOptimizer Pro any written notice under this TOS by email to email@example.com
E. Forum and Jurisdiction. This TOS is governed by the laws of the State of Washington, USA, without regard to its conflict of law provisions. You irrevocably consent to the exclusive jurisdiction of the state and federal courts located in King County, Washington, USA to resolve any dispute, claim, or controversy that arises from this TOS.
F. Additional Rights and Obligations. This TOS shall neither obligate PageOptimizer Pro, nor provide any rights, to any third-party whatsoever as an intended third-party beneficiary under this TOS. You and PageOptimizer Pro are independent contractors without authority to bind each other or to make any representations on behalf of the other party, and you and PageOptimizer Pro shall not be held to be partners or co-venturers. If any provision of this TOS is held invalid or unenforceable, such provision shall be held superseded by a valid, enforceable provision that most closely matches the intent of the original provision; the remaining provisions will remain in full force and effect. Any party's failure to act with respect to a breach of this TOS does not constitute a waiver or affect that party's rights to act subsequently. You may not assign rights or delegate any duties under this TOS without prior written notice to and consent by PageOptimizer Pro. This TOS will bind any permitted successors and permitted assigns.
