General

These Terms, together with any additional terms to which you agree when using particular elements of HPRC, constitute the entire and exclusive and final statement of the agreement between you and HP with respect to the subject matter hereof, superseding any prior agreements or negotiations between you and HP with respect to such subject matter. The HP Parties are third party beneficiaries with respect to the provisions in these Terms that reference them. These Terms and the relationship between you and HP shall be governed by the laws of the State of California as applied to agreements made, entered into, and performed entirely in California by California residents, notwithstanding your actual place of residence. All lawsuits arising from or relating to these Terms or your use of the HP Websites shall be brought in the Federal or State courts located in Santa Clara County, California, and you hereby irrevocably submit to the exclusive personal jurisdiction of such courts for such purpose. The failure of HP to exercise or enforce any right or provision of these Terms shall not constitute a waiver of such right or provision. If any provision of these Terms is found by a court of competent jurisdiction to be invalid, you nevertheless agree that the court should endeavor to give effect to the intentions of HP and you as reflected in the provision, and that the other provisions of these Terms remain in full force and effect. The section titles in these Terms are for convenience only and have no legal or contractual effect. These Terms shall remain in full force and effect notwithstanding any termination of your use of the HP Websites. These Terms will be interpreted without application of any strict construction in favor of or against you or HP. These Terms, and any rights and licenses granted hereunder, may not be transferred or assigned by you, but may be assigned by HP without restriction.


Modifications to these Terms

HP may, in its sole and absolute discretion, change these Terms from time to time. HP will post notice of such changes on the applicable site. If you object to any such changes, your sole recourse shall be to cease using the HP Websites. Continued use of the HP Websites following notice of any such changes shall indicate your acknowledgement of such changes and agreement to be bound by the terms and conditions of such changes. Certain provisions of these Terms may be superseded by expressly-designated legal notices or terms located on particular pages of the HP Websites and, in such circumstances, the expressly-designated legal notice or term shall be deemed to be incorporated into these Terms and to supersede the provision(s) of these Terms that are designated as being superseded.
