These communications are considered part of the Services and your account, and you may not be able to opt-out from receiving them. If you added your phone number to your account and you later change or deactivate that phone number, you must update your account information to help prevent us from communicating with anyone who acquires your old number.

    6. General

    We may revise these Terms from time to time. The changes will not be retroactive, and the most current version of the Terms will govern our relationship with you. We will try to notify you of material revisions, for example via a service notification or an email to the email associated with your account. By continuing to access or use the Services after those revisions become effective, you agree to be bound by the revised Terms.

    The laws of the State of California, excluding its choice of law provisions, will govern these Terms and any dispute that arises between you and Symbol Surfing. All disputes related to these Terms or the Services will be brought solely in the federal or state courts located in San Diego County, California, United States, and you consent to personal jurisdiction and waive any objection as to inconvenient forum.

    If you are a federal, state, or local government entity in the United States using the Services in your official capacity and legally unable to accept the controlling law, jurisdiction or venue clauses above, then those clauses do not apply to you. For such U.S. federal government entities, these Terms and any action related thereto will be governed by the laws of the United States of America (without reference to conflict of laws) and, in the absence of federal law and to the extent permitted under federal law, the laws of the State of California (excluding choice of law).

    In the event that any provision of these Terms is held to be invalid or unenforceable, then that provision will be limited or eliminated to the minimum extent necessary, and the remaining provisions of these Terms will remain in full force and effect. Symbol Surfing’s failure to enforce any right or provision of these Terms will not be deemed a waiver of such right or provision.

    These Terms are an agreement between you and Symbol Surfing. If you have any questions about these Terms, please email us at info@symbolsurfing.com.
