SOME JURISDICTIONS, INCLUDING NEW JERSEY, DO NOT ALLOW THE EXCLUSION OF CERTAIN WARRANTIES OR LIMITATIONS ON APPLICABLE STATUTORY RIGHTS OF A CONSUMER, SO THE ABOVE EXCLUSION AND LIMITATIONS MAY NOT APPLY TO YOU or the liability of Pixel Press shall only be limited to the maximum extent permitted by law.

SOME JURISDICTIONS, INCLUDING NEW JERSEY, DO NOT ALLOW THE LIMITATION OF LIABILITY FOR PERSONAL INJURY, OR OF INCIDENTAL OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES, SO THIS LIMITATION MAY NOT APPLY TO YOU or the liability of Pixel Press shall only be limited to the maximum extent permitted by law. 

In no event shall Pixel Press’s total liability to you for all damages (other than as may be required by applicable law in cases involving personal injury) exceed the amount actually paid by You to Pixel Press for the Licensed Application.  The foregoing limitations will apply even if the above stated remedy fails of its essential purpose.

13.    Miscellaneous

Export Controls.  You may not use or otherwise export or re-export the Licensed Application except as authorized by United States law and the laws of the jurisdiction in which the Licensed Application was obtained. In particular, but without limitation, the Licensed Application may not be exported or re-exported (i) into any U.S. embargoed countries or (ii) to anyone on the U.S. Treasury Department's list of Specially Designated Nationals or the U.S. Department of Commerce Denied Person’s List or Entity List.  You represent and warrant that (i) You are not located in a country that is subject to a U.S. Government embargo, or that has been designated by the U.S. Government as a “terrorist supporting” country; and (ii) You are not listed on any U.S. Government list of prohibited or restricted parties.  You also agree that You will not use these Licensed Applications for any purposes prohibited by United States law, including, without limitation, the development, design, manufacture or Licensed Application of nuclear, missiles, or chemical or biological weapons.

Choice of Law.  The laws of the State of Missouri, excluding its conflicts of law rules, govern this Agreement and your use of the Licensed Application. Your use of the Licensed Application may also be subject to other local, state, national, or international laws. In any action to enforce the terms of this Agreement, Missouri law shall apply.    

Dispute Resolution.  You agree that in the event of any dispute between You and Pixel Press arising under this Agreement or otherwise in connection with Your use of the Licensed Product, You and Pixel Press shall first attempt to resolve the dispute informally for a period of not less than thirty (30) days commencing upon receipt of a notice by the complaining party setting forth the nature of the complaint and the relief sought.  If any claim cannot be resolved informally, such claim shall be heard only in a federal or state court of the State of Missouri having within its territorial jurisdiction the City of St. Louis, and You consent to the jurisdiction of and venue in such courts and waive any objection as to inconvenient forum.

If You are a federal, state, or local government entity in the United States using the Services in Your official capacity and legally unable to accept the controlling law, jurisdiction or venue clauses above, then those clauses do not apply to You. For such U.S. federal government entities, these Terms and any action related thereto will be governed by the laws of the United States of America (without reference to conflict of laws) and, in the absence of federal law and to the extent permitted under federal law, the laws of the State of Missouri (excluding choice of law).

Complete Agreement.  This Agreement represents the complete agreement between You and Pixel Press with respect to the subject matter hereof, and supersedes any prior or contemporaneous agreements between You and Pixel Press; provided however that this Agreement shall coexist with, and shall not supersede, the App Store Terms and Conditions and the Pixel Press Terms of Use.  No other person or company will be third party beneficiaries to this Agreement.  This Agreement may be amended by Pixel Press from time to time in the sole discretion of Pixel Press.  Your continued use of the Licensed Application after any such amendment shall be deemed acceptance of any changed terms therein.

Non-Waiver.  Pixel Press’s failure to enforce any provision of this Agreement shall in no way be construed to be a present or future waiver of such provision, nor in any way affect the right of any party to enforce each and every such provision thereafter. The express waiver by Pixel Press of any provision, condition or requirement of this Agreement shall not constitute a waiver of any future obligation to comply with such provision, condition or requirement. 

Severability of Terms.  If any provision of this Agreement is held to be invalid or unenforceable for any reason, such provision shall be reformed to the extent necessary to make it enforceable to the maximum extent permissible so as to affect the intent of the parties, and the remainder of this Agreement shall continue in full force and effect. If, however, it is determined that such provision cannot be reformed, then that provision shall be deemed severable from these terms and shall not affect the validity and enforceability of any remaining provisions. 

Survival.  The provisions of Sections 3, 4, 10, 11, 12, 13 and 14 shall survive any termination of this Agreement.
