16.1 We reserve the right to seek any and all remedies available at law or in equity in connection with a violation of these Terms.
16.3 You agree that monetary damages may not provide a sufficient remedy to us for violations of these Terms and you consent to injunctive or other equitable relief for such violations.
16.4 Nothing in these Terms is intended to confer upon you or any third parties any rights, remedies, or benefits not otherwise expressly conferred. Your use of the Services and Site (including any establishment of an Account or submission of User Content) does not create any partnership, agency, joint venture, fiduciary or other similar relationship between us and you.
17.1 These Terms are not assignable, transferable or sub-licensable by you, in whole or in part, except with our prior written consent, but may be assigned or transferred by us without restriction. Any assignment attempted to be made in violation of these Terms shall be void.
18.1 If for any reason a court of competent jurisdiction finds any provision of these Terms to be invalid or unenforceable, the provision will be superseded by a valid, enforceable provision that most closely matches the intent of the original provision, and the remainder of these Terms will continue in effect and remain fully enforceable.
19. LIMITED TIME TO BRING CLAIM
19.1 You acknowledge and agree that it is the intent of both you and us to limit the period of time a claim may be filed, even if the period is shorter than that fixed by the statute of limitations. You therefore agree that any cause of action arising out of or related to the Site and Services must commence within one (1) year after the cause of action accrues, otherwise such cause of action is permanently barred.
20.1 You are responsible for compliance with applicable laws, regulations and ordinances related to your use of the Services. Your compliance with applicable laws is not limited to jurisdictions within the United States (including US Federal law) but also the laws, regulations and ordinances of any jurisdiction from which you access the Site or use the Services.
20.2 These Terms will be governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of the State of California, without giving effect to its conflict of laws provisions or your actual state or country of residence, and you agree to submit to the exclusive jurisdiction of the courts located within Los Angeles County, California, to resolve any legal matter arising from the Terms. Notwithstanding this, you agree that DanceChannel shall still be allowed to apply for injunctive remedies (or an equivalent type of urgent legal relief) in any jurisdiction. You agree to exclude, in its entirety, the application to these Terms of the United Nations Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods.
20.3 All other claims, including without limitation, claims under or for violation of consumer protection laws, unfair competition laws, and in tort, will be adjudicated under the laws of your state of resident in the United States, or, if you reside outside the United States, under the laws of the country in which the Site is directed.

20.6 Any waiver of any provision of these Terms will be effective only if in writing and signed by you and us. Our failure to enforce our rights and remedies available to us with respect your breach of these Terms shall not constitute a waiver of such breach nor of any prior, concurrent, or subsequent breach of the same or any other provision of these Terms.
