Should you file a claim contrary to Section 8.2 the tri shall be entitled to recover attorneys’ fees and costs up to $1000, provided that  the tri has notified you in writing of the improperly filed claim, and you have failed to promptly withdraw the claim. 

9. SEVERABILITY 

You and  the tri agree that if any portion of these Terms of Service or of the  the tri Privacy Policy is found illegal or unenforceable, in whole or in part by any court of competent jurisdiction, such provision shall, as to such jurisdiction, be ineffective solely to the extent of such determination of invalidity or unenforceability without affecting the validity or enforceability thereof in any other manner or jurisdiction and without affecting the remaining provisions of the Terms, which shall continue to be in full force and effect. 

10. GENERAL PROVISIONS 

10.1. Assignment 

 the tri may assign or delegate these Terms of Service and/or the  the tri Privacy Policy, in whole or in part, to any person or entity at any time with or without your consent. You may not assign or delegate any rights or obligations under the Terms of Service or Privacy Policy without  the tri’s prior written consent, and any unauthorized assignment and delegation by you is void and ineffective. 

10.2. Supplemental Policies 

 the tri may publish additional policies related to specific services such as applications for mobile devices, forums, contests or loyalty programs. Your right to use such services is subject to those specific policies and these Terms of Service. 

10.3. Entire Agreement 

These Terms of Service, any supplemental policies and any documents expressly incorporated by reference herein (including  the tri’s Privacy Policy), contain the entire understanding of you and  the tri, and supersede all prior understandings of the parties hereto relating to the subject matter hereof, whether electronic, oral or written, or whether established by custom, practice, policy or precedent, between you and Us with respect to the Service. 

10.4. Language of the Terms of Service 

If we provide you with a translation of the English language version of these Terms of Service, the  the tri Privacy Policy or any other policy (collectively  the tri Policies”), then you agree that the translation is provided for informational purposes only and does not modify the English language version of the  the tri Policies. 

In the event of a conflict between a translation of the  the tri Policies and the English version, the English version of the  the tri Policies will control. 

10.5. No Waiver 

The failure of  the tri to require or enforce strict performance by you of any provision of these Terms of Service or the  the tri Privacy Policy or failure to exercise any right under them shall not be construed as a waiver or relinquishment of  the tri’s right to assert or rely upon any such provision or right in that or any other instance. 

The express waiver by  the tri of any provision, condition, or requirement of these Terms of Service or the  the tri Privacy Policy shall not constitute a waiver of any future obligation to comply with such provision, condition or requirement. 

Except as expressly and specifically set forth in this these Terms of Service, no representations, statements, consents, waivers, or other acts or omissions by  the tri shall be deemed a modification of these Terms of Service nor be legally binding, unless documented in physical writing, hand signed by You and a duly appointed officer of  the tri. 

10.6. Notices 

We may notify you via e-mail or any other communications means to contact information you provide to Us. All notices given by you or required from you under these Terms of Service or the  the tri Privacy Policy shall be in writing. 

Any notices that you provide without compliance with this Section on Notices shall have no legal effect. 

10.7. Equitable Remedies 

You acknowledge that the rights granted and obligations made under these Terms of Service to  the tri are of a unique and irreplaceable nature, the loss of which shall irreparably harm  the tri and which cannot be replaced by monetary damages alone. Accordingly,  the tri shall be entitled to injunctive or other equitable relief (without the obligations of posting any bond or surety or proof of damages) in the event of any breach or anticipatory breach by you. 

You irrevocably waive all rights to seek injunctive or other equitable relief, or to enjoin or restrain the operation of the Service or any  the tri game, exploitation of any advertising or other materials issued in connection therewith, or exploitation of the Service or any content or other material used or displayed through the Service and agree to limit your claims to claims for monetary damages, limited by Section 7.2 (if any). 

10.8. Force Majeure 

 the tri shall not be liable for any delay or failure to perform resulting from causes outside the reasonable control of  the tri, including without limitation any failure to perform hereunder due to unforeseen circumstances or cause beyond  the tri’s control such as acts of God, war, terrorism, riots, embargoes, acts of civil or military authorities, fire, floods, accidents, network infrastructure failures, strikes, or shortages of transportation facilities, fuel, energy, labor or materials.
