  13. Applicable Law and Exclusive Forum.

    The Site is controlled by us from our offices within the United States of America and is intended for U.S. users only.

You may not use or export anything from the Site in violation of U.S. export laws and regulations or these Terms. You agree that these Terms, and all claims of every nature (including without limitation, contract, tort and strict liability) relating to any aspect of the Site, shall be governed by the laws of the State of Oregon, U.S.A., without regard to its conflict of law provisions and without regard to where performance is made. You agree that any disputes shall be heard exclusively in a state or federal court located in Multnomah County, Oregon. You consent to jurisdiction of such courts over you and waive any claim or defense that such forum is not convenient or proper.

  14. Indemnity.

    You agree to indemnify, defend and hold Mackenzie, its affiliates, successors and assigns, and the officers, directors, employees, agents and representatives of the foregoing, harmless for, from and against any and all losses, liabilities, expenses, damages, fees, penalties, claims or demands (actual or alleged), including reasonable attorneys' fees, arising out of or related to your breach of these Terms, or your violation or infringement of any law or the rights of any third party, including any third party intellectual property rights or rights of publicity.

  15. Notices, Including Our Address for Legal Notices.

    1. We may give you notice by any lawful method, including (without limitation) legal notices and notices of subpoenas. We may provide the notices by posting them on the Site or by giving them by email or postal mail to any address that we have for you. You agree to update your address as appropriate and to check for notices posted on the Site.
    2. You agree to send us notice by mailing it to "Our Address for Legal Notices" which is Mackenzie Engineering, Inc., Attn: Legal Notices, 1515 SE Water Avenue Ste 100, Portland, OR, 97214, U.S.A., or by emailing it to us at: legalnotices@mcknze.com.
  16. Amendments.

    You agree that we may amend these Terms from time to time, including by changing anything in these Terms ("Amendments"). With respect to the text of these Terms, we will post a new version of the Terms on this page prior to the effective date of the amended version ("Effective Date")—we will try to do that ten (10) days before a new version becomes effective, but we reserve the right to provide lesser or subsequent notice as we think advisable (such as in an emergency or to prevent harm to us or others). We may also give notice by another method, including by email. You agree that USING THE SITE AFTER THE EFFECTIVE DATE OF THE AMENDED VERSION OF THESE TERMS WILL CONSTITUTE YOUR AGREEMENT TO THE AMENDED VERSION.

  17. Agreement; Miscellaneous.

    These Terms, which incorporate by reference any: (i) additional terms on the Site or otherwise provided by us for particular activities; and (ii) disclosures provided by us and consents provided by you on the Site, constitute the entire agreement between us and neither party has relied on any representations made by the other that are not expressly set forth in the Terms. If any part of these Terms is found by a court of competent jurisdiction to be invalid, then that part will be deemed superseded by an enforceable provision that most closely matches the intent of the original and honors the allocation of risks in these Terms and the remainder of the Terms will continue in effect. Our failure to act with respect to a breach does not waive our right to act as to subsequent or similar breaches, and time is of the essence in connection with your performance under these Terms. There are no third party beneficiaries of any part of these Terms. These Terms are personal to you, and are not assignable, transferable, or sublicensable by you except with Mackenzie's prior written consent, which Mackenzie may withhold for any reason or no reason. No agency, partnership, joint venture, or employment relationship is created as a result of these Terms and neither party has any authority of any kind to bind the other in any respect. In any action or proceeding to enforce rights under these Terms, the prevailing party will be entitled to recover its reasonable costs and attorneys' fees.

  18. Legal Notices.

    Various laws require or allow us to give users of the Site certain notices and each of them is incorporated into these Terms.
