General
This Agreement, and any other legal notices published by us in connection with the App, shall constitute the entire agreement between you and us concerning your right to use the App. In the event of a conflict between this Agreement and any such legal notices, the terms of the applicable notice shall prevail with respect to the subject matter of such notice.
