signify our endorsement of such other Website or location or its contents. Any concerns you
may have regarding any external link should be directed to that link's Website administrator
or webmaster. WE WILL NOT BE LIABLE FOR ANY INFORMATION, SOFTWARE, OR LINKS FOUND AT
ANY OTHER WEBSITE, INTERNET LOCATION, OR SOURCE OF INFORMATION, OR FOR YOUR USE OF SUCH INFORMATION.

without the prior written permission of Owners Advantage and our applicable licensors. You must abide
by all copyright notices, information, or restrictions contained in or attached to any Content.
You hereby grant us and our successors and assigns, a worldwide, perpetual, irrevocable,

copyright and other intellectual property rights with respect the Content you provide to us to be
published on the Owners.com Website or on or through the Services or otherwise through the
Services, to use, distribute, display, reproduce, modify and create derivative works from such
material, in any and all media, in any manner, in whole or in part, without any duty to account

Federal or state courts having jurisdiction over San Francisco County, California and you and
Owners hereby irrevocably submit to the exclusive personal jurisdiction of such courts for such
purpose. Our failure to exercise or enforce any right or provision of the Terms shall not constitute
a waiver of such right or provision. If any provision of the Terms is found by a court of
competent jurisdiction to be invalid, the parties nevertheless agree that the court should
endeavor to give effect to the parties' intentions as reflected in the provision, and that
the other provisions of the Terms remain in full force and effect. You agree that regardless
of any statute or law to the contrary, any claim or cause of action arising out of or related
to use of the Services or the Terms must be filed within one (1) year after such claim or cause
