General 

These terms of use (and any other terms or agreements referenced here, including our Privacy Policy) represent the entire agreement between you and Blocksays and govern your use of the Service, superseding any prior or contemporaneous communications between you and Blocksays (whether electronic, oral or written). To the same extent and under the same conditions as any other business documents and records originally prepared and kept in printed form, these Terms of Use and any notice delivered in electronic form shall be admissible in judicial or administrative actions founded on or related to these Terms. 

As a consequence of these Terms or your use of the Service, you acknowledge and agree that no joint venture, partnership, agency, or employment arrangement exists between you and Blocksays and/or its affiliates. 

There is no way that Blocksays can be held liable or responsible for any failure or delay in performing its obligations under this agreement that is caused by or results from events beyond its control, including but not limited to accidents, strikes, work stoppages, war, nuclear and natural disasters, terrorism, civil and military unrest, or acts of God; or interruptions, loss or malfunctions of utilities, computer systems, or communications. 

There is nothing in these terms that affects our ability to cooperate with law enforcement requests and obligations pertaining to your use of the Service or any information you submit to us or that we acquire about your use of the Service. To the extent permitted by applicable law, you undertake to bring any claim or cause of action arising from or pertaining to your use of this Service within one (1) years of the date on which such claim or action began or accrued. 

You may not transfer or assign these Terms or any rights or licenses granted hereunder, but Blocksays may do so without limitation. A transfer or assignment you attempt in violation of the terms of this agreement will be invalid. 

Valid and enforceable provisions shall take precedence over invalid and unenforceable provisions in these Terms to the extent that they achieve the business goals and intentions of the invalid and unenforceable provisions. This applies to the warranty disclaimers and liability limitations set forth above as well.

According to the “Liability Limitation and Disclaimers” section above, certain states and foreign countries may give additional rights or not allow exclusions or limitations of implied warranties or liability for consequential damages. As a result, the limits set out in this section may not apply to you or may be superseded by particular rules in your state or country. If a term of the above Liability Limitation and Disclaimers section is found severable and doesn’t impact the legality or enforceability of the rest, it will be considered severable. 

Section and heading titles herein are for reference purposes only and won’t influence their meaning or interpretation. The phrase “without restriction” is immediately followed by the terms “including” and “include”.
