Upon such termination, you must immediately cease accessing or using the Platform and agree not to access or make use of, or attempt to use, the Platform.

We have sole control of the defense of any such damage or claim.
CLOUD MESSAGING CONSENT
If SmackSocial has reason to believe that a user is not receiving notifications for events (“Drifts”) that they have been invited to (because the user has not opened or been active on the app in over 21 days), SmackSocial reserves the right to send a SMS or MMS (“message”) to the user’s phone number provided during sign-up. Included in this text are both the Drift details, as well as instructions on how to stop receiving messages should the user choose to unsubscribe.
The Platform allows you to send Drift invitations and updates to others not on the SmackSocial app via SMS or MMS ("messages"), and/or allows SmackSocial to send such messages to you and one or more others on your behalf. When you instruct SmackSocial to send such messages to others, you represent and warrant to us that each person you have instructed us to message consents to receive such messages and any other related administrative text messages from SmackSocial. "Administrative text messages" are periodic transactional messages from SmackSocial, including but not limited to instructions on how to stop receiving messages. You or others no longer wishing to receive such messages can opt-out of receiving further messages from SmackSocial at any time by following the instructions provided. If you no longer wish to receive such messages or participate in the group, you agree that you will opt out through the instructions provided by SmackSocial. If you have reason to believe that one of your phone contacts you’ve been inviting to Drifts via SMS no longer wishes to receive such messages, you agree to remove them from the associated Drift and/or invite group (“Friend-list”). You also represent and warrant to us that you and each person you have instructed us to message understands that each person is responsible for the costs of any message charges assessed by his or her mobile carrier, including any international message charges that may apply when messages are transmitted from US-based numbers.
If any clause or part of this Agreement is deemed unlawful, that portion shall be severable, rendering the remainder of this Agreement intact.
This Agreement and the relationship between you and SmackSocial will be governed by the laws of the State of Utah, notwithstanding the choice of law provisions of the venue where any action is brought, where the violation occurred, where you may be located or any other jurisdiction. You agree and consent to the exclusive jurisdiction of the state or federal courts located in Salt Lake City, Utah and waive any defense of lack of personal jurisdiction or improper venue or forum non conveniens to a claim brought in such court, except that SmackSocial may elect, in its sole discretion, to litigate the action in the county or state where any breach by you occurred or where you can be found. You agree that regardless of any statute or law to the contrary, any claim or cause of action arising out or related to your use of the Platform or this Agreement shall be filed within one year after such claim or cause of action arose or will forever be barred.
By use of our Platform, you consent to receive electronic communications from us (via email or via a posting on the Platform), and you agree that any such communications satisfy any legal requirement to make such communications in writing. You also agree that we may communicate any notices to you under this Agreement through electronic mail or posting the notices on the Platform.
