Other Agreements: Software, Services or Access

PipeLine may provide products, services (such as software maintenance, installation, or training) or access to PipeLine Websites under the terms of a separate agreement between Users and PipeLine (each, an “Other Agreement”). PipeLine’s obligations with respect to any product, service, or access that it makes available to Users under any Other Agreement shall be governed solely by the Other Agreement under which such product or service is provided and these Terms shall not be deemed or construed to alter the terms of such Other Agreements. Indemnification

Users agree to indemnify, defend, and hold harmless PipeLine from and against any and all claims, liabilities, damages, losses, costs, expenses, or fees (including reasonable attorneys’ fees) that such parties may incur as a result of or arising from the Users’ violation of these Terms. PipeLine reserves the right to assume the exclusive defense and control of any matter otherwise subject to indemnification by a User and, in such case, Users agree to cooperate with PipeLine’s defense of such claims.

Links to Third Party Sites

This Website may contain links to third party sites. Access to any other Internet site linked to this Website is at the User’s own risk and PipeLine is not responsible for the accuracy or reliability of any information, data, opinions, advice or statements made on these sites. PipeLine provides these links merely as a convenience and the inclusion of such links does not imply an endorsement.

Linking to This Website

Users may create links to this Website from other Websites, but only in accordance with the following terms and in compliance with all applicable laws. Absent PipeLine’s written authorization otherwise, a Website that links to this Website:

(a) May link to, but shall not replicate, any materials (including any logo);

General

These Terms, together with any additional terms to which Users agree when using particular elements of the PipeLine Website, constitute the entire and exclusive and final statement of the agreement between Users and PipeLine with respect to such subject matter. These Terms and the relationship between Users and PipeLine 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 Users’ actual place of residence. All lawsuits arising from or relating to these Terms or to Users’ use of the PipeLine Website shall be brought in the State or Federal Courts located in the County of Orange, California, and Users hereby irrevocably submit to the exclusive personal jurisdiction of such venue for such purpose.

The failure of PipeLine to exercise or enforce any right or provision of these Terms shall not constitute a waiver of such right or provision. If any provision of these Terms is found by a court of competent jurisdiction to be invalid, Users nevertheless agree that the trier of fact should endeavor to give effect to the intentions of PipeLine and Users as reflected in the provision, and that the other provisions of these Terms remain in full force and effect. The section titles in these Terms are for convenience only and have no legal or contractual effect. These Terms shall remain in full force and effect notwithstanding any termination of Users’ use of the PipeLine Website. These Terms will be interpreted without application of any strict construction in favor of or against Users or PipeLine. These Terms, and any rights and licenses granted hereunder, may not be transferred or assigned by Users, but may be assigned by PipeLine without restriction.

PipeLine may, in its sole and absolute discretion, change these Terms from time to time. PipeLine will post notice of such changes on the applicable Site. If Users object to any such changes, Users’ sole recourse shall be to cease using the PipeLine Website. Continued use of the PipeLine Website following notice of any such changes shall indicate Users’ acknowledgement of such changes and agreement to be bound by the terms and conditions of such changes. Certain provisions of these Terms may be superseded by expressly-designated legal notices or terms located on particular pages of the PipeLine Website and, in such circumstances, the expressly-designated legal notice or term shall be deemed to be incorporated into these Terms and to supersede the provision(s) of these Terms that are designated as being superseded.
