In addition, User shall be charged for any additional costs incurred in the process of producing Work Product. Power3Designs will advise User of any additional costs before costs are incurred. Charges are exclusive of taxes. You are responsible for paying all taxes and government charges, and reasonable expenses and attorney fees Power3Designs incurred collecting late amounts. You waive all claims relating to charges unless claimed within 60 days after the charge (this does not affect your credit card issuer rights). Refunds (if any) are at the discretion of Power3Designs.
Intellectual Property Rights
Upon Power3Designs receipt of full payment from User for delivery of Work Product, Power3Designs hereby automatically grants to User a non-exclusive, perpetual, fully-paid and royalty-free, irrevocable and worldwide right, with rights to sublicense through multiple levels of sublicensees, to reproduce, make derivative works of, distribute, publicly perform, and publicly display in any form or medium, whether now known or later developed, make, have made, use, sell, import, offer for sale, and exercise any and all present or future rights in the Work Product delivered for that payment. If payment is made only for partial delivery of Work Product, the license described herein applies only to the portion of Work Product delivered and paid for.
Work Product may incorporate 3rd party intellectual property or materials (“Background Technology“). Prior to incorporating any such work, Power3Designs will disclose any Background Technology which Power3Designs proposes to incorporate into Work Product or upon which use or distribution of the Work Product will depend. Upon such disclosure of Background Technology, Power3Designs will provide, at User’s request, (a) the name and any associated version number, (b) the applicable license or licensing terms, (c) whether the item has been modified by Power3Designs, and (d) how the item has been incorporated into, is used by, or is relied upon by the Work Product.
User grants Power3Designs a limited, non-exclusive, revocable (at any time, at User’s sole discretion) right to use any User provided materials as necessary solely for the performance of producing Work Product. User reserves all other rights and interest, including, without limitation, all Intellectual Property Rights, in and to the User’s materials. Upon removable of the project from the Site, termination of the Service, or upon User’s written request, Power3Designs will immediately destroy all copies of the materials contained in or on Power3Designs premises, systems, or any other equipment or location otherwise under Power3Designs control.
User grants Power3Designs a limited, non-exclusive, revocable (at any time, at User’s sole discretion) right to use (a) User’s name and logo, and (b) project’s name and logo for marketing and educational purposes. A description of the work completed by Power3Designs may also be disclosed publicly.
User may provide Confidential Information, whether in tangible, electronic, verbal, graphic, visual, or other form, to assist Power3Designs in producing Work Product or performing Services. Power3Designs will protect the secrecy of the User’s Confidential Information with the same degree of care as it uses to protect its own Confidential Information, but in no event with less than due care, and will: (a) not disclose or permit others to disclose User’s Confidential Information to anyone without first obtaining the express written consent of User; (b) not use or permit the use of User’s Confidential Information, except as necessary for producing Work Product or performing Services (including, without limitation, the storage or transmission of Confidential Information on or through the Site for use by User); and (c) limit access to User’s Confidential Information to its personnel who need to know such information to produce Work Product or perform Services.
Confidential Information does not include material or information that is known to the public or that: (a) is generally known by third parties as a result of no act or omission of User or Power3Designs; (b) subsequent to disclosure hereunder, was lawfully received without restriction on disclosure from a third party having the right to disseminate the information; (c) was already known by Power3Designs prior to receiving it from the other party and was not received from a third party in breach of that third party’s obligations of confidentiality; or (d) was independently developed by Power3Designs without use of another person’s Confidential Information.
If and when Confidential Information is no longer needed for the performance of the Services or User’s request (which may be made at any time at User’s sole discretion), Power3Designs will promptly destroy the User’s Confidential Information and any copies thereof contained in or on its premises, systems, or any other equipment otherwise under its control.
A disclosure of information will be immune from prosecution or civil action under the Defend Trade Secrets Act, 18 U.S.C. Sec. 1832, if it: (A) is made (i) in confidence to a Federal, State, or local government official, either directly or indirectly, or to an attorney, and (ii) solely for the purpose of reporting or investigating a suspected violation of law; or (B) is made in a complaint or other document filed in a lawsuit or other proceeding, if such filing is made under seal.

User may not assign the Terms of Service, or any of its rights or obligations hereunder, without Power3Designs prior written consent in the form of a written instrument signed by a duly authorized representative of Power3Designs. Power3Designs may freely assign this Agreement and the other Terms of Service without User’s consent. Any attempted assignment or transfer in violation of this subsection will be null and void.

Choice of Law
Any dispute relating in any way to these terms and the use of the services will be adjudicated in any state or federal court in Lyon County, Nevada, and you hereby consent to exclusive jurisdiction and venue in those courts. The laws of the State of Nevada, without regard to principles of conflicts of laws and excluding the United Nations Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods (CISG), will govern these terms and any dispute of any sort that might arise between you and us.
If and to the extent any provision of this Agreement or the other Terms of Service is held illegal, invalid, or unenforceable in whole or in part under applicable law, such provision or such portion thereof will be ineffective as to the jurisdiction in which it is illegal, invalid, or unenforceable to the extent of its illegality, invalidity, or unenforceability and will be deemed modified to the extent necessary to conform to applicable law so as to give the maximum effect to the intent of the parties. The illegality, invalidity, or unenforceability of such provision in that jurisdiction will not in any way affect the legality, validity, or enforceability of such provision in any other jurisdiction or of any other provision in any jurisdiction.
The parties to this Agreement will not be responsible for the failure to perform or any delay in performance of any obligation hereunder for a reasonable period due to labor disturbances, accidents, fires, floods, telecommunications or Internet failures, strikes, wars, riots, rebellions, blockades, acts of government, governmental requirements and regulations or restrictions imposed by law or any other similar conditions beyond the reasonable control of such party.
This Agreement sets forth the entire agreement and understanding between you and Power3Designs relating to the subject matter hereof and thereof and cancels and supersedes any prior or contemporaneous discussions, agreements, representations, warranties, and other communications between you and us, written or oral, to the extent they relate in any way to the subject matter hereof and thereof. The section headings in the Terms of Service are included for ease of reference only and have no binding effect. Even though Power3Designs drafted the Terms of Service, you represent that you had ample time to review and decide whether to agree to the Terms of Service. If an ambiguity or question of intent or interpretation of the Terms of Service arises, no presumption or burden of proof will arise favoring or disfavoring you or Power3Designs because of the authorship of any provision of the Terms of Service.
