Disclaimer of Warranties and Limitations of Liability

Here’s the really arcane and weasely bit of the Conditions of Use: As the lawyers say, use of this site is provided on an “as is” basis. To the extent that the law allows, we don’t promise that this site is actually good for anything, fulfils any useful purpose, or is not just plain broke. What’s more, we disclaim (to the extent the law allows) responsibility for any damage you incur as a result of this site, or any emails sent by it. That said, your state or local laws might not allow us to duck out of warranties like this. If so, you may have additional rights, and some of the above disclaimer may not apply to you.

Controlling Authority, Applicable Law, and Severability

All disputes relating to this site or products purchased through it are subject to settlement through confidential arbitration in San Jose, California, and are subject to the laws of the State of California. Should any part of this agreement be deemed invalid or void in a court of law, the condition will not be deemed to affect the validity of the remaining agreement’s terms and conditions.
