We must approve in writing all links to the Site, except that we consent to links in which:
- The link is a text-only link containing only the name “Northstar Chemical, Inc.”
- The link “points” to only www.northstarchemical.com and not to deeper pages.
- When a user activates the link, it displays that page full-screen in a fully operable and navigable browser window and not in a “frame” on the in-linking website.
- The link does not create the false appearance that an entity is associated with NCI nor damage or dilute the goodwill associated with NCI.
At its sole discretion, NCI reserves the right to revoke this consent to link at any time.
Termination or Cancellation
As noted above, these Terms are a legally binding agreement between you and NCI concerning your use of the Site. Either we or you may terminate this agreement with or without cause or prior notice. You will still be liable for payment of any amounts due or other obligations incurred prior to termination, and if you use the Site after such termination, that use will constitute your new agreement to these Terms. If applicable laws require that we provide notice of termination or cancellation, we may give prior or subsequent notice by posting it on the Site or by sending a communication to any address (email or otherwise) that we have for you in our records. NCI’s rights under these Terms that by their terms, nature, sense, or context are intended to survive the termination of these Terms shall survive such termination. Without terminating your right to use the Site pursuant to these Terms, we may suspend or block your access to the Site whenever it appears to us that you might be breaching or violating these Terms or otherwise about to cause harm or damage to us or others. No breach of these Terms by NCI shall be deemed a material breach unless we are first given not less than fifteen (15) business days to cure the breach.
Applicable Law and Exclusive Forum
The Site is controlled by us from our offices within the United States and is intended for United States users only. If you choose to access the Site from locations outside the United States, you do so at your own risk and are responsible for compliance with applicable local laws. You may not use or export anything from the Site in violation of U.S. export laws and regulations or these Terms. You agree that these Terms, and all claims of every nature (including without limitation, contract, tort, and strict liability) relating to any aspect of the Site, shall be governed by the laws of the State of Oregon, U.S.A., without regard to its conflicts of laws provisions and without regard to where performance is made. These terms will specifically not be governed by the united nations conventions on contracts for the international sale of goods. You agree that any disputes shall be heard exclusively in an appropriate forum located in Multnomah County, Oregon. You also consent to jurisdiction in a state or federal court sitting in Multnomah County, Oregon, and waive any claim or defense that such forum is not convenient or proper, and consent to service of process by any means authorized by Oregon or U.S. federal law.
We may give you notice by any lawful method, including (without limitation) legal notices and notices of subpoenas. We may provide the notices by posting them on the Site or by giving them by email or postal mail to any address that we have for you.

You agree to send us notice by mailing it to “Our Address for Legal Notices” which is 14200 SW Tualatin Sherwood Road, Sherwood, OR 97140, or by emailing it to us at email@example.com
These Terms, which incorporate by reference any: (i) additional terms on the Site or otherwise provided by us for particular activities; and (ii) disclosures provided by us and consents provided by you on the Site, constitute the entire agreement between us and neither party has relied on any representations made by the other that are not expressly set forth in these Terms. If any part of these Terms is found by a court of competent jurisdiction to be invalid, then that part will be deemed superseded by an enforceable provision that most closely matches the intent of the original and honors the allocation of risks in these Terms and the remainder of these Terms will continue in effect. Our failure to act with respect to a breach does not waive our right to act as to subsequent or similar breaches. Time is of the essence in connection with your performance under these Terms. Except as expressly set forth in these Terms, there are no third-party beneficiaries of any part of these Terms. These Terms are personal to you and are not assignable, transferable, or sublicensable by you except with NCI’s prior written consent, which NCI may withhold for any reason or no reason. No agency, partnership, joint venture, or employment relationship is created as a result of these Terms and neither party has any authority of any kind to bind the other in any respect. In any action or proceeding to enforce rights under these Terms, the prevailing party will be entitled to recover its reasonable costs and attorneys’ fees.
Waiver of Jury Trial
Each party irrevocably and unconditionally waives, to the fullest extent permitted by applicable law, any right it may have to a trial by jury in any legal action, proceeding, cause of action, or counterclaim arising out of or relating to these terms, or the subject matter of these terms.
