    agreement between you and simplePDM and governs your use of the simplePDM
    Services, superseding any prior version of this TOS between you and
    simplePDM with respect to the simplePDM Services. You also may be subject
    to additional terms and conditions that may apply when you use or purchase
    certain other simplePDM services, affiliate services, third-party content
    or third-party software.

    Waiver and Severability of Terms. The failure of
    simplePDM to exercise or enforce any right or provision of the TOS shall
    not constitute a waiver of such right or provision. If any provision of
    the TOS is found by a court of competent jurisdiction to be invalid, the
    parties nevertheless agree that the court should endeavor to give effect
    to the parties' intentions as reflected in the provision, and the other
    provisions of the TOS remain in full force and effect.

    No Right of Survivorship and Non-Transferability. You
    agree that your simplePDM account is non-transferable and any rights to
    your simplePDM ID or contents within your account terminate upon your
    death. Upon receipt of a copy of a death certificate, your account may be
    terminated and all contents therein permanently deleted.

    Statute of Limitations. You agree that regardless of
    any statute or law to the contrary, any claim or cause of action arising
    out of or related to use of the simplePDM Services or the TOS must be
    filed within one (1) year after such claim or cause of action arose or be
    forever barred.

    The section titles in the TOS are for convenience only and
    have no legal or contractual effect.
