If you are under 13, you are not permitted to submit to us any personally identifiable information, such as your name, address, e-mail address, telephone number or any other information that would permit us to identify you. If you are under 13, it is against the law for us to ask you for that information, and we will not ask for it, nor do we want it.

Please refer to the Privacy Policy for more information.

Governing Law

This Agreement shall be treated as though it were executed and performed in New York and shall be governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of the State of New York (without regard to conflict or choice of law principles). Any cause of action by you with respect to the Site or any Site content or Site services must be instituted within six (6) months after the cause of action arose or shall be forever waived and barred. The language in this Agreement shall be interpreted as to its fair meaning and not strictly for or against either party. All actions shall be brought in the appropriate state or federal court located in New York. You expressly submit to the exclusive jurisdiction of such courts and consent to extra-territorial service of process.

Should any part of this Agreement be held invalid or unenforceable, that portion shall be construed consistent with applicable law, the remaining portions shall remain in full force and effect, and a court of competent jurisdiction shall have the right to reform the invalid or unlawful portions of this Agreement to make them valid and enforceable. To the extent that anything in or associated with the Site is in conflict or inconsistent with this Agreement, this Agreement shall take precedence. This Agreement constitutes the entire agreement between Fidelis and you as a user of the Site, and supersedes all prior or contemporaneous agreements with respect to the Site. We reserve to ourselves all rights not expressly granted to you in this Agreement and the Privacy Policy. This Agreement shall inure to the benefit of and bind Fidelis's agents, licensors, licensees, successors, and assigns and you and your agents, heirs, successors, assigns, estate, and legal representatives.
