Unless otherwise set forth in a product or services delivery agreement between You and HARDMAN JOHNSTON, this Agreement and our Privacy Policy constitute the entire and exclusive and final statement of the agreement between You and us with respect to the subject matter hereof, and governs Your access to and use of the Site, superseding any prior agreements or negotiations between You and us, both written and oral, with respect to the subject matter hereof.  All matters relating to the Site, this Agreement, the relationship between You and HARDMAN JOHNSTON, or any dispute or claim arising therefrom or related thereto (including non-contractual disputes or claims) will be governed by the laws of the State of Connecticut , without giving effect to any choice of laws or principles that would require the application of the laws of a different country or state.  Any legal action, suit, or proceeding arising out of or relating to this Agreement, or Your use of, the Site must be instituted exclusively in the federal or state courts located in the State of Connecticut and in no other jurisdiction.  You further consent to exclusive personal jurisdiction and venue in, and agree to service of process issued or authorized by, any such court, and irrevocably waive any jurisdictional, venue, or inconvenient forum objections to such court provided, however, that if You reside outside of the United States in a country requiring that a consumer contract be litigated in that country and/or pursuant to that country’s national law, that country’s courts may have jurisdiction and its law may apply.

Our failure to exercise or enforce any right or provision of this Agreement will not constitute a waiver of such right or provision.  If any provision of this Agreement is found by a court of competent jurisdiction to be invalid, the parties nevertheless agree that the court should endeavor to give effect to the parties’ intentions as reflected in the provision, and that the other provisions of these Terms remain in full force and effect.  You agree that regardless of any statute or law to the contrary, any claim or cause of action arising out of or related to Your use of the Site or this Agreement must be filed within one (1) year after such claim or cause of action arose or be forever barred.  The section titles in this Agreement are for convenience only and have no legal or contractual effect.  You and we are acting as independent contractors, and nothing in this Agreement creates an agency or partnership.  You may not assign Your rights under this Agreement without our prior written consent, and any attempted assignment will be null and void.
