You agree that the laws of the State of Texas, excluding its conflict of laws rules, shall exclusively govern any legal dispute relating to this Agreement and/or the Website (“Dispute”). We agree to attempt to resolve any Dispute against each other, including our agents, employees, successors, assigns, or affiliates through face to face negotiations in Houston, Harris County, Texas. We will conduct the face to face negotiations within 60 days following written notice that a Dispute exists. If such negotiations fail to resolve the Dispute, then we will attempt to resolve the Dispute through mediation in Houston, Harris County, Texas utilizing a mutually agreeable mediator, rather than through litigation. The mediation will take place within 120 days of the face to face meeting. The existence or results of any negotiation or mediation will be treated as confidential. If, however, we are unable to resolve the Dispute following such face to face negotiations and such mediation, then either of us shall be free to pursue all remedies available at law or equity in a court of competent jurisdiction in Houston, Harris County, Texas. We both agree that Houston, Harris County, Texas is the exclusive venue for the resolution of any and all Disputes under this Agreement and submit to the personal jurisdiction of the federal or state courts of Houston, Harris County, Texas. Notwithstanding anything herein to the contrary, YOU AGREE THAT ANY CLAIM YOU BRING AGAINST PREVENTICE WILL ONLY BE IN YOUR INDIVIDUAL CAPACITY AND NOT AS A PLAINTIFF OR CLASS MEMBER IN ANY PURPORTED CLASS OR REPRESENTATIVE PROCEEDING. Further, unless we both agree otherwise, you agree not to seek certification of any group of claims as a class action or otherwise consolidate more than one person’s claims in any form of a representative or class proceeding.
You agree to defend, indemnify, and hold Preventice, its officers, directors, employees, agents, licensees, and suppliers, harmless from and against any claims, actions or demands, liabilities and settlements including without limitation, reasonable legal and attorney’s fees, or alleged to result from, your violation of the terms and conditions of this Agreement.
Copyright Policy and Process
Preventice provides the following process for submission of complaints concerning content posted by our users. Please note that whether or not we disable access to or remove content, Preventice may make a good faith attempt to forward the written notification, including the complainant’s contact information, to the user who posted the content and/or take other reasonable steps to notify the user that Preventice has received notice of an alleged violation of intellectual property rights or other content violation.

If a court with authority over this Agreement finds any part of it not enforceable, we agree that the court should modify the terms to make that part enforceable while still achieving its intent. If the court cannot do that, we agree to ask the court to remove that unenforceable part and still enforce the rest of this Agreement.
This Agreement is the only agreement between us regarding the Website and supersedes all prior agreements for the Website. If we don’t act to enforce a breach of this Agreement, that does not mean that Preventice has waived its right to enforce this Agreement.
You may not assign or transfer this Agreement (or your use of the Website) to anyone without our consent. However, you agree that Preventice may assign this Agreement to its affiliates or a party that buys Preventice without your consent.
There are no third party beneficiaries to this Agreement.
