12.2 These Terms, together with any Form(s), constitute the entire agreement, and supersede any and all prior agreements between You and Adviserly with regard to the subject matter hereof. These Terms and any Form(s) shall apply in lieu of the terms or conditions in any purchase order or other order documentation You or any Entity which You represent provides (all such terms or conditions being null and void), and, except as expressly stated herein, there are no other agreements, representations, warranties, or commitments which may be relied upon by either party with respect to the subject matter hereof. Notwithstanding the foregoing, additional terms may apply to certain features, functionality, or services We offer as part of or distinct from the Adviserly Software, including Add-On Services (the “Additional Terms”). In those instances, We will notify You of such Additional Terms prior to the activation of these features, functionality, or services and the activation of these features, functionality, or services in Your Account will be considered acceptance of the Additional Terms. All such Additional Terms will be considered incorporated into these Terms when You or any Adviser authorized as an administrator in Your Account activate the feature, functionality, or service. Where there is a conflict between these Terms and the Additional Terms, the Additional Terms will control.
12.3 We may amend these Terms from time to time, in which case the new Terms will supersede prior versions. We will notify You not less than ten (10) days prior to the effective date of any such amendment and Your continued use of the Adviserly Software following the effective date of any such amendment may be relied upon by Adviserly as Your consent to any such amendment. Our failure to enforce at any time any provision of these Terms does not constitute a waiver of that provision or of any other provision of the Terms.
If any provision in these Terms is held by a court of competent jurisdiction to be unenforceable, such provision shall be modified by the court and interpreted so as to best accomplish the original provision to the fullest extent permitted by law, and the remaining provisions of these Terms shall remain in effect.
The parties are independent contractors. These Terms do not create a partnership, franchise, joint venture, agency, fiduciary or employment relationship among the parties.
Sections 1, 2.3, 3, 4 and 8-18 shall survive any termination of our agreement with respect to use of the Adviserly Software by You, Advisers or End Users. Termination of such agreement shall not limit a Party’s liability for obligations accrued as of or prior to such termination or for any breach of these Terms.
All notices to be provided by Adviserly to You under this Agreement may be delivered in writing (a) by nationally recognized overnight delivery service (“Courier”) or U.S. mail to the contact mailing address provided by You on any Form; or (b) electronic mail to the electronic mail address provided for Your Account owner. You must give notice to Adviserly in writing by Courier or U.S. Mail to the applicable address set forth on any Form or as may be superseded by the Site. All notices shall be deemed to have been given immediately upon delivery by electronic mail, or if otherwise delivered upon receipt or, if earlier, two (2) business days after being deposited in the mail or with a Courier as permitted above.
These Terms shall be governed by Utah law without regard to conflict of laws principles. You hereby expressly agree to submit to the exclusive personal jurisdictions of the state and Federal courts located in Salt Lake City, Utah, for the purpose of resolving any dispute relating to this Agreement or access to or use of the Adviserly Software by You, Advisers or End Users.
