Choice of Law and Jurisdiction
These Terms are governed by the laws of Delaware. The parties irrevocably submit to the exclusive jurisdiction of the courts of the State of Delaware in respect of all matters and disputes arising hereunder and waive any defense of lack of personal jurisdiction in that jurisdiction. If any provision of these Terms is found to be invalid by any court having competent jurisdiction, the invalidity of such provision shall not affect the validity of the remaining provisions of these Terms, which shall remain in full force and effect.
These Terms make up the entire agreement relating to your use of the Services and supersede all prior agreements relating to the subject matter hereof. We may change, suspend, or discontinue any of the Services at any time. We will not be liable to you or to any third party for any modification, suspension or discontinuance of the Site. These Terms do not confer any third-party beneficiary rights. You may not transfer any of your rights or obligations under these Terms to anyone else without our consent. Sylvan Health may assign our rights in connection with a merger, acquisition, or sale of assets, or by operation of law or otherwise. No delay or omission by Sylvan Health to exercise any right or power it has under these Terms shall impair any such right or power or be construed as a waiver of any succeeding breach. Any waivers by Sylvan Health must be in writing and signed by an authorized representative of Sylvan Health.
