With regards to any product made available to YOU on an auto-renew or monthly (or other period) subscription as sold through the Sites or otherwise (including any free trial product) (the “Product”), the default term of our agreement shall be for so long as WE make the Product available to YOU. IF YOU HAVE PROVIDED US WITH A VALID CREDIT CARD NUMBER OR AN ALTERNATE PAYMENT METHOD, YOUR SUBSCRIPTION WILL BE AUTOMATICALLY RENEWED (AND CHARGED TO THE ACCOUNT YOU HAVE PROVIDED) FOR ANOTHER TERM AT THE EXPIRATION OF YOUR CURRENT TERM, WHENEVER LOCAL REGULATIONS ALLOW, FOR A FEE NO GREATER THAN OUR THEN-CURRENT PRICE, EXCLUDING PROMOTIONAL AND DISCOUNT PRICING.
The new term will be for the same duration as the expired term unless otherwise specified at time of renewal.

The terms of this section survive any termination of the Terms and Conditions.
21. International Users
The Sites are controlled, operated, and administered by VOWTO from its offices within the United States of America. VOWTO makes no representation that materials on the Sites are appropriate or available for use at other locations outside of the United States, and access to them from territories where the contents or products available through the Sites are illegal is prohibited. YOU may not use the Sites or export the content or products in violation of U.S. export laws and regulations. If YOU access the Sites from a location outside of the United States, YOU are responsible for compliance with all local laws.
Notwithstanding any of these Terms and Conditions, VOWTO reserves the right, without notice and in its sole discretion, for any reason or no reason, to terminate YOUR ability to use the Sites and to block or prevent future access to and use of the Sites. YOU agree that VOWTO shall not be liable for any termination of YOUR use of or access to the Sites.
23. Third-Party Rights
Only YOU and VOWTO shall be entitled to enforce these Terms and Conditions. No third party shall be entitled to enforce any of these Terms and Conditions.
If any provision of these Terms and Conditions shall be deemed unlawful, void, or for any reason unenforceable by a court of competent jurisdiction, then that provision shall be deemed severable from these Terms and Conditions and shall not affect the validity and enforceability of any remaining provisions.
The terms of this section survive any termination of the Terms and Conditions.
It is the express intent of the parties that the Terms and Conditions and all related documents have been drawn up in English.
26. Applicable Law and Venue; Arbitration
These Terms and Conditions shall be governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of the State of Colorado, without resort to its conflict of law provisions. YOU agree that any action at law or in equity arising out of or relating to the Terms and Conditions or YOUR use of the Sites shall be filed only in Denver, Colorado, and except as stated herein YOU hereby irrevocably and unconditionally consent and submit to the exclusive jurisdiction of such courts over any suit, action, or proceeding arising out of the Terms and Conditions.
Notwithstanding the above, any controversy or claim related to this Agreement shall be resolved exclusively by arbitration in accordance with the Federal Arbitration Act (Title 9, U. S. Code) (the “Act”). The Act will apply even though this Agreement provides that it is governed by the laws of Colorado. Arbitration proceedings will be determined in accordance with the Act, the rules and procedures for the arbitration of financial services disputes of JAMS/Endispute, LLC, a Delaware limited liability company or any successor thereof (“JAMS”), except that discovery in said arbitration shall be limited in scope to the specifics of liability on the Claim, and any discovery related to damages calculations or any financials shall be withheld until after liability has been decided by the arbitrator(s). In the event of any inconsistency between the JAMS rules and this paragraph, the terms of this paragraph shall control. The arbitration shall be administered by JAMS and conducted in Denver, Colorado.
All Claims shall be determined by one arbitrator; however, if Claims exceed Five Million Dollars, upon the request of either VOWTO or yYOU, the Claims shall be decided by three arbitrators. All arbitration hearings shall commence within ninety (90) days of the demand for arbitration and close within ninety (90) days of commencement and the award of the arbitrator(s) shall be issued within thirty (30) days of the close of the hearing. However, the arbitrator(s), upon a showing of good cause, may extend the commencement of the hearing for up to an additional sixty (60) days. The arbitrator(s) shall provide a concise written statement of reasons for the award. The arbitration award may be submitted to any court having jurisdiction to be confirmed and enforced. The arbitrator(s) will have the authority to decide whether any Claim is barred by the statute of limitations and, if so, to dismiss the arbitration on that basis.
For purposes of the application of the statute of limitations, the service on JAMS under applicable JAMS rules of a notice of Claim is the equivalent of the filing of a lawsuit. Any dispute concerning this arbitration provision or whether a Claim is arbitrable shall be determined by the arbitrator(s). The arbitrator(s) shall have the power to award legal fees pursuant to the terms of this Agreement. This paragraph does not limit the right of VOWTO to: (i) exercise self-help remedies, such as, but not limited to, setoff; (ii) initiate judicial or non-judicial foreclosure against any real or personal property collateral; (iii) exercise any judicial or power of sale rights; or (iv) act in a court of law to obtain an interim remedy, such as, but not limited to, injunctive relief, writ of possession or appointment of a receiver, or additional or supplementary remedies. The prevailing party in any action or arbitration related to these Terms and Conditions shall be entitled to its reasonable attorneys’ fees and costs.
The terms of this section survive any termination of the Terms and Conditions.
27. Entire Agreement
The Terms and Conditions constitute the entire agreement between VOWTO and YOU with respect to YOUR use of the Sites, YOUR purchase of products and services through the Sites, and as applicable any products or services of VOWTO.
The terms of this section survive any termination of the Terms and Conditions.
28. Scope of Relationship
Nothing in these Terms and Conditions will be construed as creating a joint venture, partnership, employment, or agency relationship between YOU and VOWTO, and YOU do not have any authority to create any obligation or make any representation on VOWTO’s behalf. YOU may not assign or transfer any rights or obligations of these Terms and Conditions, by operation of law or otherwise, without VOWTO’s written consent. Subject to the foregoing, these Terms and Conditions will be binding on, inure to the benefit of, and be enforceable against YOU and VOWTO and their respective successors and assigns.
The section titles used in the Terms and Conditions are purely for convenience and carry with them no legal or contractual effect.
29. Other Terms and Conditions
These Terms and Conditions supersede any other terms and conditions previously published by us and any other representations or statements made by us to YOU, whether oral, written, or otherwise. WE may assign, transfer, or sub-contract any of our rights or obligations under these Terms and Conditions to any third party at our discretion. No delay by us in exercising any right or remedy under these Terms and Conditions shall operate as waiver of that right or remedy or shall affect our ability to subsequently exercise that right or remedy. Any waiver must be agreed to by VOWTO in writing.
