(i) sending an e-mail to the address associated with your account.

16. Survival of Terms After Agreement Ends.
Notwithstanding any other provisions of this TOS, or any general legal principles to the contrary, any provision of this TOS that imposes or contemplates continuing obligations on a party will survive the expiration or termination of this TOS.
If any of these conditions are deemed invalid, void, or for any reason unenforceable, the parties agree that the court should endeavor to give effect to the parties’ intentions as reflected in the provision, and the unenforceable condition shall be deemed severable and shall not affect the validity and enforceability of any remaining condition.

This TOS and the relationship between you and BMME will be governed by the laws of the State of Nevada without regard to its conflict of law provisions. You and BMME agree to submit to the personal jurisdiction of the federal and state courts located in the State of Nevada with respect to any legal proceedings that may arise in connection with this TOS. The failure of BMME to act with respect to a breach by you or others does not waive its right to act with respect to subsequent or similar breaches. BMME does not guarantee it will take action against all breaches of this TOS. Except as otherwise expressly provided in this TOS, there shall be no third-party beneficiaries to this TOS. This TOS constitutes the entire agreement between you and BMME and governs your use of the Website, superseding any prior agreements between you and BMME with respect to the Website.
