Subject to the requirements of applicable consumer rights and other laws, you agree that any action at law or in equity arising out of or relating to these Terms and Conditions of Use, the Site, and/or the Services shall be filed, and that venue properly lies, only in state or federal courts located in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts, United States of America, and you hereby consent and submit to the personal jurisdiction of such courts for the purposes of litigating any such action. We make no representation that content on the Site is appropriate or available for use in any particular location. Those who choose to access the Site do so on their own initiative and are responsible for compliance with all applicable laws including any applicable local laws.

Subject to the requirements of applicable consumer rights and other laws, these terms of use shall be governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts and the laws of the United States, without giving effect to any principles of conflicts of law. If any provision of these terms of use shall be unlawful, void or for any reason unenforceable, then that provision shall be deemed severable from these terms of use and shall not affect the validity and enforceability of any remaining provisions.

These terms of use take effect as an agreement and separately as a notice, which limits the basis on which CEO makes the Site available. No waiver of any provision of these terms of use by us shall be deemed a further or continuing waiver of such provision or any other provision, and our failure to assert any right or provision under these terms of use shall not constitute a waiver of such right or provision. In these Terms of Use, the word “including” is used illustratively, as if followed by the words “but not limited to.” TO THE EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW, YOU AGREE THAT ANY CAUSE OF ACTION YOU MAY HAVE ARISING OUT OF OR RELATED TO THESE TERMS OF USE, THE SITE OR THE SERVICES MUST COMMENCE WITHIN ONE (1) YEAR (OR THE MINIMUM APPLICABLE STATUTORY PERIOD, IF LONGER) AFTER THE CAUSE OF ACTION ACCRUES; OTHERWISE, SUCH CAUSE OF ACTION SHALL BE PERMANENTLY BARRED.

Subject to applicable law, at any time, we may amend these Terms of Use (including by modification, deletion and/or addition of any portion thereof).

Any such amendment to these Terms of Use will be effective thirty (30) calendar days following our posting of notice of the changes on the Site.
