Updates to the Service and Terms of Service
We may occasionally update the Service and these Terms of Service. When we do, we will revise the “last updated” date on these Terms of Service.

Enforcement of these Terms of Service will be governed by California law, excluding its conflict and choice of law principles. The exclusive jurisdiction and venue for any claims arising out of or related to these Terms of Service or your use of the Service will lie in the State and Federal courts located in San Francisco, California, and you irrevocably agree to submit to the jurisdiction of such courts. The failure of YB Media to enforce any right or provision in these Terms of Service will not constitute a waiver of such right or provision unless acknowledged and agreed to by YB Media in writing. In the event that a court of competent jurisdiction finds any provision of these Terms of Service to be illegal, invalid or unenforceable, the remaining provisions will remain in full force and effect.
