These Terms may be terminated by either you, the Client, or Blissbook as set forth below or pursuant to the MSA (if applicable); provided, however that these Terms will continue to apply after such termination: a. with respect to any Client Data you have downloaded from the Website or via the Services, b. with respect to any other legal rights, obligations, and liabilities that you have been subject to (or which have accrued over time while these Terms have been in force) or which by their nature, or as expressed herein, continue after termination; or c. as set forth in the MSA (if applicable).

Blissbook and Client shall arbitrate any dispute relating to or arising from the Agreement.

Blissbook shall maintain commercially reasonable standards, processes, procedures, and/or safeguards, including administrative, technical and physical safeguards, which are at least as rigorous as the measures standard in the industry which are reasonably designed to (i) ensure the security and confidentiality of Client’s Confidential Information, Client Data and other such information, (ii) protect against any anticipated threats or hazards to the security or integrity of Client’s Confidential Information, Client Data and other such information, and (iii) protect against unauthorized access to or use of Client’s Confidential Information, Client Data or other such information.

You may not use the Service for any unlawful or discriminatory activities, including acts prohibited by the Federal Trade Commission Act, Fair Credit Reporting Act, Equal Credit Opportunity Act, Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act, or other laws that apply to commerce. If you are in the European Economic Area, the United Kingdom, or Switzerland (collectively, the “EEA”) and/or distribute Personal Information through the Service to anyone located in the EEA via the Service or Website, you represent and warrant to Blissbook that:

12.1. Assignment; Subcontracting
You may not assign these Terms. Any assignment contrary to these provisions shall be null and void and of no legal effect. These Terms shall be binding upon and inure to the benefit of the permitted assigns and successors of the Parties. Blissbook may subcontract to any third party all or any portion of its obligations under these Terms to provide Services.
12.2 Force Majeure

12.3 Linked Sites
12.4 Jurisdiction and Governing Law
The terms and your relationship with Blissbook under these Terms, shall be governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of the State of Delaware, USA, without giving effect to any principles of conflicts of law. Subject to the arbitration provision set forth above, you agree that any action at law or in equity arising out of or relating to these Terms shall be filed exclusively in the local, state, or federal courts located in the Metro Atlanta area of Georgia. You hereby consent and submit to the personal jurisdiction of such courts for the purposes of litigating any such action. Notwithstanding the foregoing section, you agree that Blissbook shall be permitted to apply for injunctive remedies (or an equivalent type of urgent legal relief) in any jurisdiction.
12.5 Injunctive Relief
In the event you are in breach, or threaten to breach any term of these Terms, you agree that Blissbook will be greatly damaged, and that such breach will be irreparable and the resultant damages difficult to quantify; therefore, notwithstanding the provisions of Section 9, Blissbook may obtain injunctive or other equitable relief to restrain such breach or threat of breach, without impairing, invalidating, negating or voiding Blissbook’s rights to relief either at law or in equity.
12.6 Severability and Waiver
The invalidity of any portion of these Terms will not and shall not be deemed to affect the validity of any other provision, and any such finding of invalidity or unenforceability in any jurisdiction shall not invalidate or render unenforceable such provision in any other jurisdiction. If any provision of these Terms is held to be invalid or unenforceable, the parties agree that the remaining provisions shall be deemed to be in full force and effect as if they had been executed by both parties after the expungement of the invalid provision. If any part of these Terms is determined to be invalid or unenforceable pursuant to applicable law, then the invalid or unenforceable provision(s) will, rather than be stricken in their entirety, be deemed superseded by a valid, enforceable provision that most closely matches the intent of the original provision and the remainder of these Terms shall continue in effect.
No delay or omission by Blissbook to exercise any right or power occurring upon any non-compliance or default by Client with respect to any of the terms of these Terms shall impair any such right or power or be construed to be a waiver thereof. A waiver by Blissbook of any of the covenants, conditions, or agreements to be performed by the other shall not be construed to be a waiver of any subsequent breach thereof or of any covenant, condition, or agreement herein contained. Unless otherwise stated herein, all remedies provided for in these Terms shall be cumulative and in addition to and not in lieu of any other remedies available to Blissbook at law, in equity, or otherwise.
Blissbook may use Client’s name and logo(s) on their website at https://blissbook.com. Client hereby grants Blissbook a limited, revocable, non-exclusive, term-limited, worldwide, royalty-free, license in and to Client’s logo and name solely for Blissbook’s use as described in this Section. Blissbook will change or update Client’s logo or name as requested. Any other use of Client’s logo, name, or affiliation with Blissbook requires prior written approval by Client.
12.8 Independent Contractors
The relationship between you and Blissbook is that of independent contractors, and no agency, partnership, joint venture, or employer-employee relationship is intended or created by these Terms. Neither Party shall have the power to obligate or bind the other Party.
