Any litigation arising out of or related to your access to or use of this website will be brought only in the United States District Court for the District of California, or, if federal subject matter jurisdiction is lacking, then in the California state trial court for the division and county in which The Company’s or its successor’s or assign’s principal office in California is then located.
