Any use of the Interactive Areas or other portions of the Sites in violation of the foregoing violates these Terms of Service and may result in, among other things, termination, or suspension of the License to use the Interactive Areas and/or the Sites.
To the extent ownership of the User Content does not pass to Joe Toweett under these Terms of Service, you grant Joe Toweett and its affiliates and licensees a nonexclusive, royalty-free, perpetual, irrevocable and fully licensable right to use, reproduce, modify, adapt, publish, translate, create derivative works from, distribute, perform and display such User Content throughout the world in any manner or media, including, but not limited to, in advertising, fundraising, and other communications in support of Joe Toweett.

Applicable Law and Venue.
These Terms of Service and your use of the Sites shall be governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of the Commonwealth of Virginia applicable to agreements made and to be entirely performed within the Commonwealth of Virginia, without resort to its conflict of law provisions. Any dispute shall be settled in the Commonwealth of Virginia and any court action shall be brought in the state courts in and for the City of Alexandria, Virginia (unless Federal law requires otherwise, in which case the action shall be brought in the Unites States District Court for the Eastern District of Virginia, in Alexandria, Virginia). The Parties hereby consent to the jurisdiction in Virginia and hereby waive any right to contest jurisdiction or claim an inconvenient forum.
Notwithstanding any of these Terms of Service, Joe Toweett reserves the right, at any time, without notice and in its sole discretion, to terminate your License, and to block or prevent your access to and use of the Sites.
These Terms of Service do not alter in any way the terms or conditions of any other agreement you may have with Joe Toweett for products, services, or otherwise.
In the event that any provision of these Terms of Service, or any portion hereof, shall be declared invalid or unenforceable by a court of competent jurisdiction in any jurisdiction, such provision, or portion thereof, shall, as to that jurisdiction, be ineffective to the extent declared invalid or unenforceable without affecting the validity or enforceability of the other provisions of these Terms of Service, or any portion thereof, and the remainder of these Terms of Service shall remain binding on you. However, in the event that any provision, or any portion thereof, shall be declared unenforceable because of its scope, breadth, or duration, then it shall be automatically modified to the scope, breadth, or duration permitted by law and shall be fully enforceable in that jurisdiction as so modified as if such modification was made upon the first date you accessed the Sites or received the Services.
