The Terms, the Privacy Policy, any operating rules, policies or procedures that may be posted from time to time by OREF on the Site, and any modifications to the foregoing, constitute the entire agreement between the parties with regard to the subject matter hereof and supersede all prior understandings and agreements, whether written or oral, as to such subject matter.
