We’ll post notice of modifications to these terms on this page. We’ll post notice of modified additional terms in the applicable Service. Changes will not apply
retroactively and will become effective no sooner than fourteen days after they are posted.

If you do not agree to the modified terms for a Service, you should discontinue your use of that Service.
If there is a conflict between these terms and the additional terms, the additional terms will control for that conflict.
These terms control the relationship between World Life Mapping and you. They do not create any third party beneficiary rights.

If it turns out that a particular term is not enforceable, this will not affect any other terms.
The courts in some countries will not apply Japan law to some types of disputes. If you reside in one of those countries, then where Japan law is excluded from applying, your country’s laws will apply to such disputes related to these terms. Otherwise, you agree that the laws of Japan, excluding Japan’s choice of law rules, will apply to any disputes arising out of or relating to these terms or the Ciby Link. Similarly, if the courts in your country will not permit you to consent to the jurisdiction and venue of the courts in Japan, then your local jurisdiction and venue will apply to such disputes related to these terms. Otherwise, all claims arising out of or relating to these terms or the Ciby Link will be litigated exclusively in the courts of Japan, and you and World Life Mapping consent to personal jurisdiction in those courts.
