11. Forward-Looking Statements
These Websites may contain forward-looking statements.  These statements relate to future events or the future performance of Alvine.  We have attempted to identify these statements by terminology including “anticipate,” “believe,” “can,” “continue,” “could,” “estimate,” “expect,” “intend,” “may,” “plan,” “potential,” “predict,” “should,” or “will” or the negative of these terms or other comparable terminology.  These statements are only predictions and involve known and unknown risks, uncertainties, and other factors.  The information in such discussions covers certain risks, uncertainties, and possible inaccurate assumptions that could cause actual results to differ materially from the expected and historical results.  Alvine reserves the right to modify, in part or in whole, or temporarily or permanently discontinue or remove any material from these Websites at any time without notice to you, and without any liability to you.
12. Miscellaneous
These Terms of Use constitute the entire agreement between you and Alvine and govern your use of the Websites, superseding any prior agreements between you and Alvine (including, but not limited to, any prior versions of the Terms of Use) and any prior representations by Alvine.  These Terms of Use and any rights and licenses granted hereunder, may not be transferred or assigned by you, but may be assigned by Alvine without restriction.  Any assignment attempted to be made in violation of these Terms of Use shall be void.  These Terms of Use shall be governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of the State of California, without regard to conflicts of law principles.  You agree that any action at law or in equity arising out of or relating to these Terms of Use or the Websites shall be filed only in the state or federal courts in and for San Mateo County, California and you hereby consent and submit to the personal and exclusive jurisdiction and venue of such courts for the purposes of litigating any such action.  The failure of Alvine to exercise or enforce any right or provision of the Terms of Use shall not constitute a waiver of such right or provision.  If any provision of the Terms of Use is found by a court of competent jurisdiction to be invalid, the parties nevertheless agree that the court should endeavor to give effect to the parties’ intentions as reflected in the provision, and the other provisions of the Terms of Use remain in full force and effect.  YOU AGREE THAT REGARDLESS OF ANY STATUTE OR LAW TO THE CONTRARY, ANY CLAIM OR CAUSE OF ACTION BROUGHT AGAINST ALVINE AND ITS SUBSIDIARIES, AFFILIATES, OFFICERS, AGENTS, CO-BRANDERS OR OTHER PARTNERS AND EMPLOYEES, ARISING OUT OF OR RELATED TO USE OF THE WEBSITES OR THE TERMS OF USE MUST BE FILED WITHIN ONE (1) YEAR AFTER SUCH CLAIM OR CAUSE OF ACTION AROSE OR BE FOREVER BARRED.  Alvine may provide you with notices, including those regarding changes to these Terms of Use, by email, regular mail or postings on the Websites.  Notice will be deemed given twenty-four hours after email is sent, unless Alvine is notified that the email address is invalid.  Alternatively, we may give you legal notice by mail to a postal address, if provided by you through the Websites.  In such case, notice will be deemed given three days after the date of mailing.  The section titles in the Terms of Use are for convenience only and have no legal or contractual effect.
