10. The Site is controlled and operated by Plotagraph from its principal office in Santa Barbara, California, U.S.A., and is not intended to subject Plotagraph to the laws or jurisdiction of any state, country, or territory other than that of California and of the United States of America. Plotagraph does not represent or warrant that the Site or the Software, or any aspect thereof, are appropriate or available for use in any particular jurisdiction. Those who choose to access the Site or Software do so on their own initiative and at their own risk, and are responsible for complying with local laws.

13. If any provision of this Agreement is found for any reason to be unlawful, void, or unenforceable, then that provision will be deemed severable from this Agreement and will not affect the validity and enforceability of any remaining provision. Any heading, caption or section title contained herein is inserted only as a matter of convenience, and in no way defines or explains any section or provision hereof. A party's failure to insist upon or enforce strict performance of any provision of this Agreement shall not be construed as a waiver of any provision or right.

A breach of this Agreement entitles Plotagraph to attorneys’ fees and reasonable costs to enforce the terms of this Agreement. All rights not expressly granted by Plotagraph herein, are hereby reserved.

Website Visitors

Like most website operators and digital products, Plotagraph may collect non-personally-identifying information of the sort that web browsers and servers typically make available, such as the browser type, language preference, referring site, and the date and time of each visitor request. Plotagraph’s purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how Plotagraph’s visitors use its website and digital products. From time to time, Plotagraph may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website and digital products.

Plotagraph may also collect potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged in users and for users leaving comments on digital products. Plotagraph only discloses logged in user and commenter IP addresses under the same circumstances that it uses and discloses personally-identifying information as described below, except that blog commenter IP addresses may be visible and disclosed to the administrators of the blog where the comment was left.

Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information

Certain visitors to Plotagraph’s website and digital products may voluntarily interact with Plotagraph in ways that require Plotagraph to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that Plotagraph may gather depends on the nature of the interaction.

In each case, Plotagraph collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with Plotagraph.

Some of those employees, contractors and affiliated organizations may be located outside of your home country; by using Plotagraph’s website and digital products you consent to the transfer of such information to them. Plotagraph will not rent or sell potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information to anyone. Other than to its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations, as described above, Plotagraph discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only when required to do so by law, or when Plotagraph believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of Plotagraph, third parties or the public at large. If you are a registered user of the Plotagraph website and have supplied your email address, Plotagraph may occasionally send you an email to tell you about new features, solicit your feedback, or just keep you up to date with what’s going on with Plotagraph and our products. We primarily use our various product blogs to communicate this type of information, so we expect to keep this type of email to a minimum. If you send us a request (for example via a support email or via one of our feedback mechanisms), we reserve the right to publish it in order to help us clarify or respond to your request or to help us support other users. Plotagraph takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.
