10. GOVERNING LAW. This TOU has been made in and will be construed and enforced in accordance with the laws of the State of Nevada as applied to agreements entered into and completely performed in the State of Nevada.

11. INJUNCTIVE RELIEF. You acknowledge that any breach, threatened or actual, of this TOU, including, without limitation, with respect to unauthorized use of NFBC proprietary assets, will cause irreparable injury to NFBC, such injury would not be quantifiable in monetary damages, and NFBC would not have an adequate remedy at law. You therefore agree that NFBC shall be entitled, in addition to other available remedies, to seek and be awarded an injunction or other appropriate equitable relief from a court of competent jurisdiction restraining any breach, threatened or actual, of your obligations under any provision of this TOU. Accordingly, You hereby waive any requirement that NFBC post any bond or other security in the event any injunctive or equitable relief is sought by or awarded to NFBC to enforce any provision of this TOU.

This TOU will take effect the moment You click “ACCEPT”, register, respond to a request for information, and/or begin downloading, accessing, or using the Site, whichever is earliest. NFBC reserves the right at any time and on reasonable grounds, which shall include, without limitation, any reasonable belief of fraudulent or unlawful activity or actions or omissions that violate any term or condition of this Agreement, to deny You access to the Site or to any portion thereof in order to protect its name and goodwill, its business, and/or other Users, and this TOU will also terminate automatically if You fail to comply with its terms and conditions, subject to the survival rights of certain provisions identified below. Termination will be effective without notice and may impact your membership status with NFBC. You may also terminate this TOU at any time by ceasing to use the Site, but all applicable provisions of this TOU will survive termination, as identified below, and each re-access or use of the Site will reapply this TOU (then in effect) to You. Upon termination, You must destroy all copies of any aspect of the Site in your possession. The provisions concerning proprietary rights, disclaimers of warranty and liability, waiver and severability, entire agreement, and governing law will survive the termination of this TOU for any reason.

13. WAIVER & SEVERABILITY. Failure to insist on strict performance of any of the terms and conditions of this TOU will not operate as a waiver of any subsequent default or failure of performance. No waiver by NFBC of any right under this TOU will be deemed to be either a waiver of any other right or provision or a waiver of that same right or provision at any other time. If any part of this TOU is determined to be invalid or unenforceable pursuant to applicable law including, but not limited to, the warranty disclaimers and the liability limitations set forth above, then the invalid or unenforceable provision will be deemed superseded by a valid, enforceable provision that most clearly matches the intent of the original provision and the remainder of this TOU shall continue in effect.

14. ENTIRE AGREEMENT. No joint venture, partnership, employment, affiliate, or agency relationship exists between You and NFBC as result of this TOU or your utilization of the Site. This TOU and NFBC’s Privacy Policy represent the entire agreement between You and NFBC with respect to use of the Site, and they supersede all prior or contemporaneous communications and proposals, whether electronic, oral, or written between You and NFBC with respect to the Site. You may not assign or transfer any rights under this Agreement without the prior written consent of NFBC. Please note that NFBC reserves the right to change the terms and conditions of this TOU by posting a revised TOU or mailing and/or e-mailing notice thereof to You. In addition, NFBC may add, modify, or delete any aspect, program, or feature of the Site, but NFBC is not under any obligation to add any upgrade, enhancement, or modification.
