Governing Law; Legal Jurisdiction; and Statute of Limitations

The laws of the State of New York govern this Agreement, without regard to conflict of law principals, your access to and use of our site and the Terms of this Online Agreement. You submit to the exclusive jurisdiction of the courts in the State of New York and waive any jurisdictional venue or inconvenient forum objections to such court.

In that event, the provision will be deemed severable from this Agreement and not affect the validity or enforceability of the remaining provisions. We will replace the unenforceable provision by an enforceable provision that comes closest to the intention of the underlying unenforceable provision.
