These Terms of Service continue until terminated by either party. You may terminate these Terms of Service by discontinuing use of all Yahoo! New Zealand Mobile Widgets and by destroying all your copies thereof. These Terms of Service terminate automatically if you violate any term hereof, Yahoo! New Zealand publicly posts a written notice of termination on Yahoo! New Zealand's web site, or Yahoo! New Zealand sends a written (including email or text message) notice of termination to you directly. Your obligations in these Terms of Service survive any termination of these Terms of Service.

13. GENERAL TERMS

a. Entire Agreement. These Terms of Service and the Yahoo! New Zealand Privacy Policy (and the documents incorporated by reference into those terms) constitute the entire agreement between you and Yahoo! New Zealand and governs your use of Yahoo! New Zealand Mobile Widgets, superseding any prior agreements between you and Yahoo! New Zealand with respect to Yahoo! New Zealand Mobile Widgets. In the event of any conflict between the terms and conditions of this MWTOS and those in the TOS, the terms and conditions of this MWTOS control, except to the extent that the TOS impose additional restrictions and liabilities on your actions.

b. Choice of Law and Forum. These Terms of Service and the relationship between you and Yahoo! New Zealand shall be governed by the laws of New Zealand. You and Yahoo! New Zealand agree to submit to the personal and exclusive jurisdiction of the courts located in Auckland. The United Nations Convention on the International Sale of Goods does not apply to the Yahoo! New Zealand Mobile Widgets.

c. Waiver and Severability of Terms. The failure of Yahoo! New Zealand to exercise or enforce any right or provision of these Terms of Service shall not constitute a waiver of such right or provision. If any provision of these Terms of Service 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 these Terms of Service remain in full force and effect.

d. 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 Yahoo! New Zealand Mobile Widgets or these Terms of Service must be filed within one (1) year after such claim or cause of action arose or be forever barred. The titles in these Terms of Service are for convenience only and have no legal or contractual effect.
