The information provided on the Site is not intended for distribution to, or use by, any person or entity in any jurisdiction or country where such distribution or use would be contrary to law or regulation or which would subject Seeger Weiss to any registration requirement within such jurisdiction or country. Anyone using or accessing the Site from outside the United States does so on their own initiative and is responsible for compliance with United States’ and local laws regarding online conduct and acceptable content, if and to the extent such laws are applicable. We reserve the right to limit the availability of the Site or any portion of the Site, to any person, geographic area, or jurisdiction, at any time and in our sole discretion, and to limit the quantities of any content, program, service or other feature that we provide.

By accessing this Site, you represent and warrant that you are not located in, under the control of, or a national or resident of, any such country or on any such list.

The failure of Seeger Weiss to act with respect to a breach of these Terms by you or others does not constitute a waiver and will not limit Seeger Weiss’s rights with respect to such breach or any subsequent breaches. No waiver by Seeger Weiss of any of these Terms will be of any force or effect unless made in writing and signed by a duly authorized officer of Seeger Weiss. Neither the course of conduct between the parties nor trade practice will act to modify these Terms. Seeger Weiss may assign its rights and duties under these Terms to any party at any time without any notice to you. Terms may not be assigned by you without Seeger Weiss’s prior written consent. If any provision of these Terms is found to be unlawful, void, or for any reason unenforceable, then that provision will be deemed severable from these Terms and will not affect the validity and enforceability of any remaining provisions. If a court, arbitrator, or other adjudicative body should determine that any provisions of these Terms is overbroad, unfair or unreasonable, such provision shall be given effect to the maximum extent possible by narrowing or enforcing in part that aspect of the provision found overbroad or unreasonable. The Section titles are inserted only as a matter of convenience and have no legal or contractual effect. You agree that these Terms will not be construed against Seeger Weiss by virtue of Seeger Weiss having drafted them. No amendment to or modification of these Terms, or action, or delay, will be binding unless in writing and signed by Seeger Weiss. Provisions of these Terms that would logically survive termination shall survive the termination of these Terms for any reason (including without limitation, “Disclaimers (Legal & Medical)”, “Disclaimer of Warranties,” and “Limitation of Liability; Waiver”).
