You are familiar with Section 1542 of the Civil Code of the State of California, which provides as follows: • A general release does not extend to claims which the creditor does not know or suspect to exist in his favor at the time of executing the release, which if known by him must have materially affected his settlement with the debtor.

Any claim or dispute between you and Narwhaler LLC that arises in whole or in part from the Service shall be decided exclusively by a court of competent jurisdiction located in Wilmington, Delaware. These Terms of Service shall constitute the entire agreement between you and Narwhaler LLC. If any provision of these Terms of Service is deemed invalid by a court of competent jurisdiction, the invalidity of such provision shall not affect the validity of the remaining provisions of these Terms of Service, which shall remain in full force and effect. No waiver of any term of this these Terms of Service shall be deemed a further or continuing waiver of such term or any other term, and Narwhaler LLC's failure to assert any right or provision under these Terms of Service shall not constitute a waiver of such right or provision. Your use of the Service following any amendment of these Terms of Service will signify your assent to and acceptance of its revised terms. YOU AND NARWHALER LLC AGREE THAT ANY CAUSE OF ACTION ARISING OUT OF OR RELATED TO THE SERVICES MUST COMMENCE WITHIN ONE (1) YEAR AFTER THE CAUSE OF ACTION ACCRUES. OTHERWISE, SUCH CAUSE OF ACTION IS PERMANENTLY BARRED.
