General Terms

These Terms control the relationship between Santa Clara University and you with regard to your use of the Service. These Terms do not create any third party beneficiary rights.  If you do not comply with these terms, and we don’t take action right away, this doesn’t mean that we are giving up any rights that we may have (such as taking action in the future).

If any provision in these Terms is deemed unenforceable by a court of competent jurisdiction, this will not affect any other terms.  These Terms are governed by, and construed in accordance with, the laws of the State of California, without regard to its conflict of laws provisions.  All claims arising out of or relating to these Terms or the Service will be litigated exclusively in the federal or state courts of Santa Clara County, California and you and Santa Clara University consent to personal jurisdiction in those courts.
