Finally, you acknowledge that, with respect to any claim you may have relating to or arising out of SUEVU DIGITAL’s actual or alleged exploitation or use of any material you submit to this site and/or SUEVU DIGITAL, the damage, if any, thereby caused will not be irreparable or otherwise sufficient to entitle you to injunctive or other equitable relief or to in any way enjoin the exploitation or other use of any SUEVU DIGITAL product or service based on or allegedly based on the material, and your rights and remedies in any such event shall be strictly limited to the right to recover damages, if any, in an action at law. You agree that this authorization contains the full and complete understanding between SUEVU DIGITAL and you regarding SUEVU DIGITAL’s use of your Submission and cannot be modified except by a document signed by SUEVU DIGITAL and you.
The TOS and any other terms and conditions of service on this site, and its successor, constitute the entire agreement between you and SUEVU DIGITAL, govern your use of the Service, and supersede all prior or contemporaneous written or oral agreements between the parties with respect to the subject matter hereof.
