The state or local courts in the State of California will have exclusive jurisdiction and venue over all controversies in connection with this Agreement, and You hereby consent to such exclusive and personal jurisdiction and venue.

16. ENFORCEMENT. Zero Parallel wishes to maintain the Website as a helpful resource for all of its users. As it relates to Zero Parallel, You therefore have no reasonable expectation of privacy while using the Website because Zero Parallel reserves the right to view, monitor, and/or record activity on the Website (in accordance with applicable law) and to comply with government or court appointed authorities when necessary. Actual or attempted unauthorized use of the Website may also result in criminal and/or civil prosecution, including, without limitation, punishment under the Computer Fraud and Abuse Act of 1986 under U.S. federal law. You shall therefore not, nor shall You permit any third party to, disable, circumvent, or otherwise avoid any security device, mechanism, protocol, or procedure established by Zero Parallel for use of or with the Website. Moreover, You also acknowledge that any breach, threatened or actual, of this Agreement by You may cause irreparable injury to Zero Parallel and/or its licensors, such injury would not be quantifiable in monetary damages, and Zero Parallel and/or its licensors would not have an adequate remedy at law. You therefore agree that Zero Parallel and/or its licensors (or on their behalf) shall be entitled, in addition to other available remedies, to seek and be awarded an injunction or other appropriate equitable relief from a court of competent jurisdiction restraining any breach, threatened or actual, of your obligations under any provision of this Agreement. Accordingly, You hereby waive any requirement that Zero Parallel or its licensors post any bond or other security in the event any injunctive or equitable relief is sought by or awarded to Zero Parallel to enforce any provision of this Agreement.
18. TERMINATION. Zero Parallel also reserves the right at any time and on reasonable grounds, which shall include, without limitation, any reasonable belief of fraud, illegal activity, or actions or omissions that violate any term or condition of this Agreement, to terminate this Agreement with You (including any registered account) in order to protect its name, business, or goodwill and/or any other user. You acknowledge and agree that Zero Parallel shall have the sole right to determine in its reasonable discretion whether You are engaging in any unauthorized activity and/or violating any term or conditions of this Agreement.

The provisions concerning feedback, Zero Parallel’s ownership rights, representations and warranties, warranty disclaimer, limitation of liability, governing law, enforcement, termination, and the miscellaneous terms will survive the termination or expiration of this Agreement for any reason.
