Governing Law, Jurisdiction, Legal Fees, Etc.

Michigan state law governs this Agreement without regard to its conflicts of laws provisions. With respect to any suit, action or proceeding relating to this Agreement the undersigned irrevocably submits to the jurisdiction of the United States District Court for the Eastern District of Michigan or the state courts in Oakland County, Michigan, which submission shall be exclusive unless (a) none of such courts has lawful jurisdiction over such proceedings, or (b) we elect to pursue injunctive relief in another court having jurisdiction. The College prohibits accessing materials from countries or states where contents are illegal. You are accessing this website on your own initiative and you are responsible for compliance with all applicable laws.  BOTH PARTIES IRREVOCABLY WAIVE ANY AND ALL RIGHT TO TRIAL BY JURY WITH RESPECT TO ANY LEGAL PROCEEDING ARISING OUT OF THIS AGREEMENT.

Limitation of Actions.

You must commence any suit or other action in connection with your use of any site within one year after events giving rise to the claim or cause of action occur.

Without affecting any other limitation of liability contained in these terms of use or otherwise:

  1. IN NO EVENT WILL WE BE LIABLE FOR ANY DAMAGES WHATSOEVER, WHETHER DIRECT, INDIRECT, GENERAL, SPECIAL, COMPENSATORY, CONSEQUENTIAL, AND/OR INCIDENTAL, ARISING OUT OF OR RELATING TO THE CONTENT OR CONDUCT OF YOU OR ANYONE ELSE IN CONNECTION WITH THE USE OF ANY SITE, INCLUDING, WITHOUT LIMITATION, BODILY INJURY, EMOTIONAL DISTRESS, AND/OR ANY OTHER DAMAGES RESULTING FROM COMMUNICATIONS OR MEETINGS WITH OTHER USERS OF ANY SITE OR PERSONS INTRODUCED TO YOU THROUGH ANY SITE; and

UNDER NO CIRCUMSTANCES WILL OUR AGGREGATE LIABILITY, ON ANY FORM OF ACTION WHATSOEVER IN CONNECTION WITH THIS AGREEMENT, EXCEED THE PRICE PAID BY YOU TO US.

No Waiver

No failure on the part of either of us to exercise, and no delay in exercising, any right, power, or privilege will operate as a waiver thereof; nor will any single or partial exercise of any right hereunder preclude any other or further exercise thereof or the exercise of any other right.  The waiver by either of us of any default or breach of this Agreement will not constitute a waiver of any other or subsequent default or breach.

General.

This Agreement is the entire agreement between you and the College and replaces all prior understandings, communications and agreements, oral or written, regarding the use of the  public website. If any court of law, having the jurisdiction, rules that any part of this Agreement is invalid, that provision will be removed without affecting the remainder of the Agreement. The remaining terms will be valid and enforceable. The United Nations Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods does not apply to this Agreement. This Agreement is an agreement between the Parties, and confers no rights upon any of the parties’ employees, agents, contractors or customers, or upon any other person or entity. The words “hereof,” “herein” and “hereunder” and other words of similar import refer to this Agreement as a whole, as the same may from time to time be amended or supplemented, and not to any subdivision contained in this Agreement.  The word “including” when used herein is not intended to be exclusive and means “including, but not limited to.”  The word “or” when used herein is not intended to be exclusive unless the context clearly requires otherwise.
