YOU ACKNOWLEDGE AND AGREE THAT THE ESSENTIAL PURPOSE OF THIS SECTION 10.2 IS TO ALLOCATE THE RISKS UNDER THESE TERMS BETWEEN THE PARTIES AND LIMIT POTENTIAL LIABILITY GIVEN THE SUBSCRIPTION CHARGES, WHICH WOULD HAVE BEEN SUBSTANTIALLY HIGHER IF GRAIN WERE TO ASSUME ANY FURTHER LIABILITY OTHER THAN AS SET FORTH HEREIN. GRAIN HAS RELIED ON THESE LIMITATIONS IN DETERMINING WHETHER TO PROVIDE YOU THE RIGHTS TO ACCESS AND USE THE SERVICE PROVIDED FOR IN THESE TERMS.
9.3 Some jurisdictions do not allow the exclusion of implied warranties or limitation of liability for incidental or consequential damages, which means that some of the above limitations may not apply to You.

All such Additional Terms will be considered incorporated into these Terms when You or any User designated as an administrator on your Account activates the feature or functionality. Where there’ is a conflict between these Terms and the Additional Terms, the Additional Terms will control.
10.3 Grain may elect to change or supplement the terms of this Agreement from time to time at its sole discretion. Grain will exercise commercially reasonable business efforts to provide notice to You of any material changes to this Agreement. Grain’s failure to enforce at any time any provision of these Terms does not constitute a waiver of that provision or of any other provision of the Terms.
If any provision in these Terms is held by a court of competent jurisdiction to be unenforceable, such provision shall be modified by the court and interpreted so as to best accomplish the original provision to the fullest extent permitted by law, and the remaining provisions of these Terms shall remain in effect.

These Terms shall be governed by the laws of the State of California without regard to conflict of laws principles.
