Miscellaneous: Our failure to exercise or enforce any right or provision of these Aetna Terms shall not operate as a waiver of such right or provision. If any part of these Aetna Terms is determined to be invalid or unenforceable pursuant to applicable law including, but not limited to, the warranty disclaimers and liability limitations set forth above, then the invalid or unenforceable provision will be deemed superseded by a valid, enforceable provision that closely matches the intent of the original provision and the remainder of these Aetna Terms shall continue in effect. These Aetna Terms, together with any additional terms and conditions or policies referred to and incorporated herein, constitutes the entire understanding between you and us. You agree that a printed version of these Aetna Terms and of any notice given in electronic form shall be admissible in judicial or administrative proceedings based on or related to these Aetna Terms to the same extent and subject to the same conditions as other business documents and records originally generated and maintained in printed form.

We may demand that any dispute between us relating to the Aetna Flickr Page be settled by arbitration utilizing the dispute resolution procedures of the American Arbitration Association (AAA) in New York, NY, USA, provided that the foregoing shall not prevent us from seeking injunctive relief in a court of competent jurisdiction.

If any part of these Aetna Terms is determined to be invalid or unenforceable pursuant to applicable law including, but not limited to, the warranty disclaimers and liability limitations set forth above, then the invalid or unenforceable provision will be deemed superseded by a valid, enforceable provision that most closely matches the intent of the original provision and the remainder of these Aetna Terms shall continue in effect. These Aetna Terms, together with any additional terms and conditions or policies referred to and incorporated herein, constitutes the entire understanding between you and us.
