These Terms and your use of the Site as contemplated under the Terms are personal to you, and are not assignable, transferable or sublicensable by you except with Road9Sports's prior written consent. Road9Sports may assign, transfer, or delegate any of its rights and obligations hereunder without your consent.
6. Road9Sports Remedies Cumulative
Road9Sports’s remedies under these Terms are cumulative, and the failure of Road9Sports to exercise or enforce any right or provision of the Terms shall not constitute a waiver of such right or provision, or of any other right or provision.
If any provision of the Terms is found by a court of competent jurisdiction to be invalid, the parties nevertheless agree to give effect to the parties' intentions as reflected in the provision to the extent permitted by applicable law, and the other provisions of the Terms remain in full force and effect in order to best accomplish the original intent of the parties.
8. Dispute Resolution
Any dispute arising out of or in connection with these Terms or your use of the Site will be governed by the laws of the State of Oregon, without regard to its conflict-of-laws principles. You agree that any cause of action or proceeding concerning any such dispute must be brought in Multnomah County Circuit Court of the State of Oregon or, subject to applicable jurisdictional requirements, in the United States District Court for the District of Oregon, and you consent to the jurisdiction of such courts (and of the appropriate appellate courts) in any such action or proceeding and waive any objection to such venue.
You also agree that the remedy at law for your breach or threatened breach of the Terms may, by its nature, be inadequate, and that Road9Sports will be entitled, in addition to damages, to a restraining order, temporary and permanent injunctive relief, specific performance, and other appropriate equitable relief, without showing or proving that any monetary damage has been sustained. You further agree that regardless of any statute or law to the contrary, any cause of action or proceeding against Road9Sports and arising out of or in connection with the Site must be filed within one (1) year after such claim or cause of action arose or be forever barred.
The section titles in the Terms are for convenience only and have no legal or contractual effect. All references in the Terms to “Section” or “Sections” without additional identification refer to the Section or Sections of these Terms. Whenever the word “include” or the word “including” is present in the Terms, such word will be deemed to be followed by the phrase “without limitation.”
