If we become aware of any breach of these Terms or the foregoing rules, we will investigate and may work with law enforcement authorities in such investigation and for the purpose of prosecuting offenders. You agree to notify Celerium immediately of any unauthorized use of your account or any other breach of security of which you become aware.

Celerium reserves the right to moderate or review Content; however, the foregoing prohibitions do not impose on Celerium, and Celerium does not assume any obligation, to monitor or remove any Content. By using the Site or Service, you hereby acknowledge and agree that you may be exposed to content that is offensive, indecent or objectionable to you. Your access to the Site or Service is undertaken at your own risk and Celerium is not responsible for any offensive or otherwise objectionable materials in the Content.
Modification or Termination of Site, Services or Content
Celerium reserves the right to modify the Site, and the Content at any time, without notice to you. Celerium also reserves the right to terminate, in whole or in part, the Site and the Content without notice to you. UPON ANY TERMINATION OR SUSPENSION, ANY INFORMATION RELATED TO YOUR ACCOUNT MAY NO LONGER BE ACCESSED BY YOU. Furthermore, we will have no obligation to maintain any information stored in our database related to your account or to forward any information to you or any third party.
Any suspension, termination or cancellation of the Site, Service or Content will not affect your obligations to us under these Terms relating to ownership, warranty disclaimers, indemnification, and limitations of liability, which by their sense and context are intended to survive such suspension, termination or cancellation.
Celerium controls and operates these its Sites and Services from its headquarters in the State of California in the United States of America. It makes no representation that the Content is appropriate or will be available for use in locations other than the United States. If you use these Site from outside California or the United States, you are entirely responsible for compliance with applicable local laws, including but not limited to the export laws or regulations of the United States and the export and import regulations of other countries in relation to the Content.
Applicable Law; Disputes
This Agreement will be governed by California law, without regard to the choice of law or conflict of laws provisions of California or any other jurisdiction. You may bring any disputes, actions, claims, or causes of action related to this Agreement or in connection with these Site only in the federal and state courts located in Los Angeles County, California. However, we believe that non-appealable, binding arbitration is a more cost efficient, quicker more final and easier to understand system than litigation in the courts. Therefore, you may opt to bring any dispute to your choice of two private arbitration providers, at the facility closest to your home in the continental United States. If you choose arbitration you will be giving up your right to a trial by jury (for which you must pay in the court system). Acceptable arbitration providers are JAMS under their Streamlined Arbitration Rules & Procedures or American Arbitration Association under their Expedited Commercial Rules of Arbitration. If any provision of these Terms is held by an agreed upon arbitrator, or a court of competent jurisdiction to be contrary to law, then such provision(s) shall be construed, as nearly as possible, to reflect the intentions of the parties, with all other provisions remaining in full force and effect. The failure of Celerium to enforce any right or provision in these Terms shall not constitute a waiver of such right or provision unless acknowledged and agreed to by Celerium in writing.
No Third-party Beneficiaries
Except as expressly provided in these Terms there shall be no third-party beneficiaries to the Terms. We have the right to assign our rights or delegate any of our responsibilities under these Terms to an affiliate or other third party or in connection with a merger, consolidation or reorganization of Celerium or the sale of substantially all of our assets.
Entire Agreement and Interpretation
Unless otherwise agreed to in a separate writing signed by you and Celerium, these Terms comprise the entire agreement between you and Celerium and supersede all prior or contemporaneous negotiations, discussions or agreements, if any, between the parties regarding the subject matter contained herein. You may not assign your rights or obligations under this Agreement to anyone, without Celerium’s prior written consent. In the event that any provision of these Terms, or the application thereof, becomes or is declared by a court of competent jurisdiction to be illegal, void or unenforceable, the remainder of these Terms will continue in full force and effect and the application of such provision to other persons or circumstances will be interpreted to reasonably give effect to the intent of the parties hereto.
