The Service (or parts of it), at Yahoo?s discretion, may be accessed or made available through or via various mediums or devices now known or hereafter developed, including but not limited to the World Wide Web, mobile telephone or communications services (such as SMS (Short Message Service)), and/or other Internet or telecommunications services or protocols (such as WAP (Wireless Application Protocol)) (collectively, the "Channels"). You also understand and agree that that the Service may include certain communications from Yahoo such as service announcements, administrative messages and the Yahoo Newsletter, and that these communications are considered as part of the Yahoo membership and you will not be able to opt out of receiving them.

Unless explicitly stated otherwise, any new features that augment or enhance the current Service, including the release of new Yahoo properties, shall be subject to the TOS. You understand and agree that the Service is provided "AS-IS" and that Yahoo assumes no responsibility for the timeliness, deletion, mis-delivery or failure to store any user communications or personalization settings.

In order to use the Service, you must obtain access to the Channels, either directly or through devices that access web-based content, and pay any service fees associated with such access to the Service in accordance with the applicable payment terms. Such fees and payment terms may be changed from time to time, and such changes will be notified to you, whether by email or by notices or links to notices on the Service or by other appropriate means.

Your agreement to this TOS constitutes your consent to allow Yahoo to store these communications on its servers.

Waiver and Severability of Terms. The failure of Yahoo 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 Yahoo account is non-transferable and any rights to your Yahoo 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 Service 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.
