11. General Provisions

(a) These Terms of Use, together with any other written agreement between you and MyStorey, constitute the entire agreement between you and MyStorey and shall govern your use of this Website and supersede all prior agreements between you and MyStorey. The Terms of Use and the relationship between you and MyStorey shall be governed by the laws of the State of California without regard to its conflict of law provisions.

(b) If any provision of these Terms of Use is finally determined to be invalid, illegal or otherwise unenforceable, that determination will not affect any other provision of these Terms of Use. Any invalid, illegal or unenforceable provision will be severed from these Terms of Use and all remaining provisions will continue to be enforceable by their terms and of full force and effect. Any ambiguities that may exist in these Terms of Use will be resolved, notwithstanding the fact that MyStorey drafted these Terms of Use, by applying the most reasonable interpretation to the subject provision, by giving to the extent possible under the circumstances full consideration to the intentions of both you and MyStorey on the date such provision became a part of these Terms of Use.

(c) These Terms of Use are made solely for the benefit of you and MyStorey. Nothing in these Terms of Use is intended to confer any rights or remedies on any other persons or entities. Nothing in these Terms of Use is intended to relieve or discharge the obligation or liability of any third person or entity to MyStorey or you.
