General provisions

These Terms of Use and any additional terms posted on the Site together constitute the entire agreement between Sony Mobile and you with respect to your use of the Site. The failure of Sony Mobile to require performance of any provision hereof shall not affect the full right to require such performance at any time thereafter; nor shall the waiver by Sony Mobile of a breach of any provision hereof be taken or held to be a waiver of the provision itself. To be effective, any waiver by Sony Mobile must be in writing. Any cause of action you may have with respect to your use of the Site must be commenced within one (1) year after the claim or cause of action arises. If for any reason a court of competent jurisdiction finds any provision of these Terms of Use, or portion thereof, to be unenforceable, that provision shall be enforced to the maximum extent permissible so as to effect the intent of this agreement, and the remainder of these terms and conditions shall continue in full force and effect. These Terms of Use shall be governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of Sweden, without reference to its conflicts of law rules.
