You acknowledge that Norwood Sawmills has no obligation to update this Website, and that there is a possibility that the content of this Website may be out of date.

You acknowledge that any breach by you of these terms and conditions will cause irreparable damage to Norwood Sawmills and its affiliates and that a remedy at law will be inadequate. Therefore, in addition to any and all other legal and equitable remedies, Norwood Sawmills and its affiliates will be entitled to necessary injunctive relief for any breach of these terms and conditions. Any cause of action by either party must be undertaken within one (1) year after the use of the Website relating to such cause of action, or within one (1) year of discovery of a breach or violation of these Terms of Use if such breach or violation could not reasonably be discovered prior to such time, or forever be waived and barred.

In the event that any of the provisions of these Terms of Use will be held by a court or other tribunal of competent jurisdiction to be unenforceable, such provisions will be limited or eliminated to the minimum extent necessary, so that these Terms of Use will otherwise remain in full force and effect and enforceable. These Terms of Use constitute the entire and only agreement between Norwood Sawmills and you pertaining to the subject matter hereof, and is intended to be a complete and absolute integration of the agreement between the parties. Concerning the subject matter hereof, any and all prior written agreements, representations, understandings, and warranties (collectively, "Understandings") and all contemporaneous or prior oral Understandings between the parties are expressly superseded, canceled, and replaced by these Terms of Use. Each Website use by you will constitute and be deemed your unconditional acceptance of These Terms of Use, regardless of whether you review these Terms of Use prior to such Website use or not. These Terms of Use and all information relating to your use of the Website are properly authenticated documents and may be given full evidentiary weight, if submitted in evidence by Norwood Sawmills or you.

Norwood Sawmills may terminate your access to this Website or content or any Website use rights, in its sole and absolute discretion, at any time and for any reason (with or without cause), with or without notice, even if the access and use continue to be allowed to others. Without limiting the previous sentence, Norwood Sawmills may suspend or stop your access to this Website if you do not comply with these Terms of Use and when investigating potential misconduct. If the agreement formed by these Terms of Use is terminated, you agree to cease all use of this Website and, upon request by Norwood Sawmills, to return or destroy all information in your possession relating to the Website, and all copies thereof, rendering such information no longer accessible to you. All sections of these Terms of Use that are reasonably capable of surviving will survive their expiration or termination.

You will not assign or transfer any interest in these Terms of Use, whether by merger, consolidation, operation of law, or otherwise without the prior written consent of an authorized executive officer of Norwood Sawmills. Norwood Sawmills has the right to transfer, sub-contract or otherwise deal with Norwood Sawmills’ rights and obligations under this Agreement without notifying you or obtaining your consent. No delay or omission to exercise any right or remedy accruing to Norwood Sawmills upon any breach or default by you will impair that right or remedy, or be construed to be a waiver of any breach or default, unless contained in an express writing executed by an authorized officer of Norwood Sawmills. All article or section headings, or exhibit names, are for reference and convenience only and will not be considered in the interpretation of the Terms of Use. You and Norwood Sawmills are independent contractors, and no agency, partnership, joint venture, employee-employer or franchisor-franchisee relationship is intended or created by these Terms of Use. If these Terms of Use conflict with a provision of any other contract between you and Norwood Sawmills relating to the Website, the provision in such other contract will govern. The obligations of either you or Norwood Sawmills under these Terms of Use (other than payment obligations) will be suspended, to the extent that the party is hindered or prevented from performing its obligations by acts of God, fires, storms, accidents, governmental regulations or any cause whatsoever, which is not within that party's reasonable control.
