<h2>8. Changes</h2>
<p>PwOSS reserves the right, at its sole discretion, to modify or replace any part of this Agreement. It
is your responsibility to check this Agreement periodically for changes. Your continued use of or
access to the Website following the posting of any changes to this Agreement constitutes acceptance
of those changes. PwOSS may also, in the future, offer new services and/or features through the

<p>&nbsp;</p>
<h2>10. General</h2>
<p>The Website is hosted in the United States. The Operators make no claims that the Content on the
Website is appropriate or may be downloaded outside of the United States. Access to the Content may
not be legal by certain persons or in certain countries. If you access the Website from outside the
United States, you do so at your own risk and are responsible for compliance with the laws of your
jurisdiction. The provisions of the UN Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods
will not apply to these Terms. A party may give notice to the other party only in writing at that
party's principal place of business, attention of that party's principal legal officer, or at such
other address or by such other method as the party shall specify in writing. Notice shall be deemed
given upon personal delivery or facsimile, or, if sent by certified mail with postage prepaid, 5
business days after the date of mailing, or, if sent by international overnight courier with postage
prepaid, 7 business days after the date of mailing. If any provision herein is held to be
unenforceable, the remaining provisions will continue in full force without being affected in any
way. Further, the parties agree to replace such unenforceable provision with an enforceable
provision that most closely approximates the intent and economic effect of the unenforceable
provision. Section headings are for reference purposes only and do not define, limit, construe or
describe the scope or extent of such section. The failure of the Operators to act with respect to a
breach of this Agreement by you or others does not constitute a waiver and shall not limit the
Operators' rights with respect to such breach or any subsequent breaches. Any action or proceeding
arising out of or related to this Agreement or User's use of the Website must be brought in the
courts of Belgium, and you consent to the exclusive personal jurisdiction and venue of such courts.
Any cause of action you may have with respect to your use of the Website must be commenced within
one (1) year after the claim or cause of action arises. These Terms set forth the entire
understanding and agreement of the parties, and supersedes any and all oral or written agreements or
understandings between the parties, as to their subject matter. The waiver of a breach of any
provision of this Agreement shall not be construed as a waiver of any other or subsequent breach.<a

<p>&nbsp;</p>
<h2>11. Links to Other Materials</h2>
<p>The Website may contain links to sites owned or operated by independent third parties. These links
are provided for your convenience and reference only. We do not control such sites and, therefore,
we are not responsible for any content posted on these sites. The fact that the Operators offer such
links should not be construed in any way as an endorsement, authorization, or sponsorship of that
site, its content or the companies or products referenced therein, and the Operators reserve the
right to note its lack of affiliation, sponsorship, or endorsement on the Website. If you decide to
access any of the third party sites linked to by the Website, you do this entirely at your own risk.
Because some sites employ automated search results or otherwise link you to sites containing
information that may be deemed inappropriate or offensive, the Operators cannot be held responsible
for the accuracy, copyright compliance, legality, or decency of material contained in third party
sites, and you hereby irrevocably waive any claim against us with respect to such sites.</p>
