Governing Law and Venue
This Agreement shall be interpreted, construed and governed by the laws of the State of Washington, USA, without reference to its laws relating to conflicts of law and not including the provisions of the 1980 United Nations Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods. Venue for all disputes arising under this Agreement shall lie exclusively in the Superior Courts of the State of Washington in King County or the Federal District Courts of the Western District of Washington (as permitted by law) and you agree not to contest the personal jurisdiction of these courts. Notwithstanding the foregoing, however, the organization shall have the right to commence and prosecute any legal or equitable action or proceeding before any non-U.S. court of competent jurisdiction to obtain injunctive or other relief in the event that, in the opinion of the Academy, such action is necessary or desirable.
Should any clause of these Terms and Conditions of Use be found unenforceable, wherever possible this will not affect any other clause and each will remain in full force and effect. The organization’s failure to expressly enforce any provision of these Terms and Conditions does not waive its rights to enforce that or any other provision.
We reserve the right to change these Terms and Conditions, and other information available on this Website, without notice. These conditions set out the entire agreement between The Academy and you relating to your use of this Website.
