Contract between You and Us, Amendments and Termination
Supplemental terms and conditions may apply to some Services, such as rules for a particular competition, service or other activity, or terms that may accompany certain content or software accessible through the Services. Supplemental terms and conditions will be disclosed to you in connection with such competition, service, activity, content or software. Any supplemental terms and conditions are in addition to these Terms and, in the event of a conflict, prevail over these Terms.

We may also terminate these Terms at any time, for any reason, and without any requirement of notice to you, including in the event we stop offering the Services. Upon termination of these Terms, all licenses and other rights granted to you in these Terms will immediately cease. Any payment obligation which accrues prior to termination of these Terms and any other provisions of these Terms that by their nature and context are intended to survive the performance and termination of these Terms, including, but not limited to, those rights and obligations set forth under “Proprietary Rights,” “Limited License,” “Disclaimer; Limitation of Liability,” “User Generated Content,” “Governing Law and Venue,” and “Electronic Communications” will survive the termination of these Terms.
