When we modify these Terms, we will update the Effective Date and, when reasonably possible, we also will provide you with advance written notice of our changes. We will not make changes that have a material retroactive on your legal rights effect without notice unless we are required to do so by law or to protect the rights of other users. Your continued use of the Services after the Effective Date constitutes your acceptance of the amended Terms. The amended Terms supersede all previous versions of or agreements, notices, or statements of or about the Terms. Unless you agree in writing, any change to the dispute resolution provision will not apply to any dispute for which we have actual notice before the Effective Date of the Terms containing the change.
Additional terms and conditions may apply to certain features of the Services, such as our events or awards programs. When presented to you, you must agree to the additional terms before using the Services to which they apply. These Terms and the additional terms will apply equally unless an additional term is irrevocably inconsistent with these Terms, in which case the additional term will prevail but solely to the extent of the inconsistency.
