9.  ADS AND MALWARE

We took great care and pride in creating the Site and take such care and pride in maintaining and improving it.  We are always on the lookout for technical glitches that adversely affect how the Site works.  When we find them on our end, we will fix them.  Unfortunately, your home computer may cause some glitches that affect how you see the Site–and that is totally beyond our control.

If you experience any unusual behavior, content or ads on the Site, it may be the result of Malware on your computer.  Malware -- short for MALicious softWARE -- is a term used to broadly classify a form of software that is installed in a computer or computer system with malicious intentions, usually without the owner's knowledge or permission.  Malware includes computer viruses, key loggers, malicious active content, rogue programs and dialers, among others.  While we work closely with our partners on an ongoing basis to ensure that everything on the Site is working properly, sometimes Malware programs on your personal computer may interfere with your experience on the Site and on other sites that you visit.  If you do discover any Malware on your system, we suggest you speak with a qualified computer technician.

10.    INTERNATIONAL USE.

Although the Site may be accessible worldwide, we make no representation that materials on the site are lawful, appropriate or available for use in locations outside the United States, and accessing such material from jurisdictions in which it is illegal is prohibited. Those who choose to access the Site from international locations do so on their own initiative and at their own risk, and are responsible for compliance with all local laws. Any offer for any service, and/or information made in connection with the Site is void where prohibited.

This Agreement and your use of the Site shall be governed by, construed and enforced in accordance with the substantive laws of the State of New York applicable to contracts made, executed and wholly performed in that State.  Any legal suit, action, or proceeding arising out of or related to this Agreement or the matters contemplated hereunder shall be instituted exclusively in the federal courts of the United States or the courts of the State of New York in each case located in the City of New York and County of New York, and each Party irrevocably submits to the exclusive jurisdiction of such courts in any such suit, action, or proceeding and waives any objection based on improper venue or forum non conveniens or otherwise; provided, however, that notwithstanding the foregoing, you agree that Perl Street has the sole right and discretion to commence and prosecute an action against you in connection with this Agreement, in your home jurisdiction.  Service of process, summons, notice, or other document by mail to such Party's address set out herein shall be effective service of process for any suit, action, or other proceeding brought in any such court.   To the extent it may be applicable, you agree to opt out from and expressly exclude any applicability of the Uniform Computer Information Transactions Act.
