Third-Party Links

In an attempt to provide increased value to our visitors, Annapurna may link to sites operated by third parties. However, even if the third party is affiliated with Annapurna, Annapurna has no control over these linked sites, all of which have separate privacy and data collection practices, independent of Annapurna. These linked sites are only for your convenience and therefore you access them at your own risk. Nonetheless, Annapurna seeks to protect the integrity of its web site and the links placed upon it and therefore requests any feedback on not only its own site, but for sites it links to as well (including if a specific link does not work).

Privacy Policy

Annapurna privacy policy governs the privacy rights on the Site. The policy may be changed electronically and you fully understand that any change or modification has to be monitored by you continuously keeping up to date with the latest policy update.

  • Any personnel, agent, adviser, auditor, contractor or service provider who provides services or advice to us in connection with our operations;
  • Any person under a duty of confidentiality to us;
  • Any person to whom we are required to make disclosure under any law applicable in or outside the United States; and
  • Any actual or proposed transferee of our business or the Site.

You should also note that the privacy protection as set out in this Privacy Policy does not apply to personal data that is passed to third parties, and we are not responsible for the protection of your personal data or lack thereof by such third parties.

Any Dispute Between Us Will Be Governed by United States and California Law

These Terms and Conditions shall be governed by and construed in accordance with, and all legal issues arising from or related to either party’s use of, or participation in the Site or materials shall be determined by the laws of the United States and the State of California without regard to that State’s conflict-of-law provisions. The State and federal courts of California shall be the exclusive forum and venue to resolve any and all disputes arising out of or relating to these Terms and Conditions or the subject matter hereof. You consent to personal jurisdiction and venue in the appropriate court in California.

Notwithstanding anything to the contrary set forth in these Terms and Conditions, Annapurna may at any time seek injunctive or other appropriate relief against you and/or against others, in any state or federal court in the State of California, in the event Annapurna believes that there is a violation or threatened violation of any intellectual property rights of Annapurna or of any third party, and you hereby consent to the exclusive jurisdiction and venue of such courts.

If any portion of these Terms and Conditions are deemed to be invalid, prohibited or unenforceable in any jurisdiction for any reason unless narrowed by construction, such term or condition shall for purposes of such jurisdiction only, be construed as if such invalid, prohibited or unenforceable term or condition had been more narrowly drawn so as not to be invalid, prohibited or unenforceable (or if such language cannot be drawn narrowly enough, the court making any such determination shall have the power to modify, to the extent necessary to make such term or condition enforceable in such jurisdiction, and such term or condition shall then be applicable in such modified form).  If, notwithstanding the foregoing, any such term or condition would be held to be invalid, prohibited or unenforceable in any jurisdiction for any reason, such term or condition, as to such jurisdiction only, shall be ineffective to the extent of such invalidity, prohibition or unenforceability, without invalidating the remaining Terms and Conditions.  No narrowed construction, court-modification or invalidation of any term or condition shall affect the construction, validity or enforceability of such term or condition in any other jurisdiction.

No waiver by Annapurna of any term or condition of these Terms and Conditions shall be deemed a further or continuing waiver of such term or of any other term, and Annapurna’s failure to assert any right or demand compliance with any provision of these Terms and Conditions shall not be deemed to constitute a waiver of any such right or provision.
