No advice or information, whether oral or written, obtained by User from Pirate the World shall create any warranty not expressly made herein.

All notices to a party shall be in writing and shall be made either via online announcements, email, or conventional mail.

The TOS shall for all purposes be governed by and interpreted in accordance with the laws of the US, excluding its conflict of law provisions. User and Pirate the World agree to submit to the exclusive jurisdiction of the courts of the US. Pirate the World's failure to exercise or enforce any right or provision of the TOS shall not constitute a waiver of such right or provision unless acknowledged and agreed to by Pirate the World in writing.
No right may be assigned, and no duty may be delegated, by either party under this Agreement except upon the written consent of the other party and any attempted assignment and delegation without such consent shall be void and without effect. Notwithstanding the foregoing, however, Pirate the World shall be entitled to assign this agreement, and all rights and obligations hereunder, to a successor to all or substantially all of its assets, whether by sale, merger or otherwise. This TOS shall be binding upon and shall inure to the benefit of the parties hereto and their respective representatives, heirs, administrators, successors and permitted assigns except as otherwise provided herein.
Neither party is, nor will it be deemed to be, an agent or legal representative of the other party for any purpose. Neither party will be entitled to enter into any contracts in the name of or on behalf of the other party, and neither party will be entitled to pledge the credit of the other party in any way or hold itself out as having authority to do so.
If any provision(s) of the TOS is/are held by a court of competent jurisdiction to be contrary to law, or otherwise invalid or unenforceable, then such provision(s) shall be construed, as nearly as possible, to reflect the intentions of the parties with the other provisions remaining in full force and effect.
Any waiver (express or implied) by either party of any breach of this TOS shall not constitute a waiver of any other or subsequent breach. No provision of the TOS will be waived by any act, omission or knowledge of a party or its agents or employees except by an instrument in writing expressly waiving such provision and signed by a duly authorized officer of the waiving party.
User and Pirate the World agree that any cause of action arising out of or related to these Services must commence within one (1) year after the cause of action arose; otherwise, such cause of action is permanently barred.
