GENERAL

This agreement shall be governed by, and construed and enforced in accordance with, the laws of The State of Michigan, U.S.A., without regard to its conflicts of laws principles. The United Nations Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods is expressly disclaimed. You hereby consent to this choice of law, and to the exclusive jurisdiction and venue of the state and federal courts located in the State of Michigan, U.S.A., for all disputes arising out of or relating to this agreement and/or to the use of this site. Use of this site is unauthorized in any jurisdiction that does not give effect to all provisions of these terms and conditions, including without limitation this paragraph.

You agree that no joint venture, partnership, employment, or agency relationship exists between you and HighScope or any of our affiliates or suppliers as a result of this agreement or use of this site.

Our performance of this agreement is subject to existing laws and legal process, and nothing contained in this agreement is in derogation of our right to comply with law enforcement requests or requirements relating to your use of this site or information provided to or gathered by us with respect to such use.

If any part of this agreement is determined to be invalid or unenforceable pursuant to applicable law including, but not limited to, the warranty disclaimers and liability limitations set forth above, then the invalid or unenforceable provision will be deemed superseded by a valid, enforceable provision that most closely matches the intent of the original provision and the remainder of the agreement shall continue in effect.

Any waiver (express or implied) by either party of any breach of this agreement shall not constitute a waiver of any other or subsequent breach.

This agreement and the Privacy Policy referenced herein constitute the entire agreement between you and us with respect to this site and it supersedes any and all prior or contemporaneous communications and proposals, whether electronic, oral, or written, between you and HighScope with respect to this site. A printed version of this agreement and of any notice given in electronic form shall be admissible in judicial or administrative proceedings based upon or relating to this agreement to the same extent and subject to the same conditions as other business documents and records originally generated and maintained in printed form.

We reserve the right, at any time, to modify, alter, or update our Privacy Policy or these Terms of Use. If we do so, we will post such modifications, alterations, or updates on this site, and your continued use of this site will constitute acceptance of such modifications, alterations, or updates.
