Termination and Modification
The sites reserve the right to terminate your access to and use of the sites, in its sole discretion, without notice and liability, including without limitation, if the site believes your conduct fails to conform with these Terms.  The sites also reserve the right to investigate suspected violations of these Terms.  Any violation of these Terms, may be referred to law enforcement authorities.

The sites reserve the right to modify, withdraw, suspend or discontinue, temporarily or permanently, at any time, any materials, downloads or programs  available on the sites without limitations, including the cessation of all activities associated with the sites, with or without notice.  You agree that the sites and IVI parties will not be liable to you or to any third party for any modification, suspension or discontinuance of the sites or any part thereof.

Governing Law
These terms and the interpretation of these terms will be governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of the state of New York, without regard to its conflicts of laws principles and specifically will not be governed by the United Nations Conventions on contracts for the international sale of goods, if otherwise applicable.  You agree that jurisdiction and venue in any legal proceeding directly or indirectly arising out of or relating to the sites, the use or access thereof, or these terms must be in any court of competent jurisdiction in Otsego County, New York, and you hereby consent and submit to the exclusive personal jurisdiction and venue of the courts located in Otsego County, New York, for any such legal proceeding, any cause of action or claim you claim you have with respect to any sites.

Dispute Resolution/Mediation/No Class Relief
If any controversy, allegation or claim arises out of or relates to the sites, the materials, your use of the sites, and these Terms, (collectively, “Dispute”), or to any of the sites actual or alleged intellectual property rights (an “excluded dispute”), then you and we agree to send a written notice to the other providing a reasonable description of the Dispute or excluded dispute, along with a proposed resolution of it.  If we do not have a current address for you then , then we have no obligation under this section.  Your notice to us must be sent to the International Vedic Institute, LLC, Attn: General Counsel, 132 Wilbur Hill Rd. Unadilla NY 13849.  For a period of sixty days from the date of receipt of notice from the other party, the sites or the IVI parties will engage in a dialogue in order to attempt to resolve the dispute or excluded dispute though nothing will require either party to resolve the dispute or excluded dispute on terms with respect to which you and the sites or the IVI parties, in each of our sole discretion are not comfortable.

If we cannot resolve a dispute as set forth above within sixty days of receipt of the notice, then either you or we must submit the dispute to formal mediation in any court of competent jurisdiction in Otsego County, New York, administered by the Judicial Arbitration Mediation Services (JAMS). The mediation shall be conducted by a mediator agreed on by the parties no later than ninety days from the notice of dispute.  If the parties are unable to timely select the mediator, JAMS, as the case may be, shall designate the mediator.  The parties must split the cost of the mediation equally.

Disputes will be mediated only on an individual basis and will not be consolidated with any other proceedings that involve any claim or controversy of any other party.  But if, for any reason, any court with competent jurisdiction or any mediator selected pursuant to this section holds that this restriction is unconscionable or unenforceable, then our agreement to mediate in this section will not apply and the dispute must be brought exclusively in court pursuant to the above section.

Except to the extent that mediation is required, any action or proceeding relating to any dispute or excluded dispute may only be instituted in any court with competent jurisdiction in Otsego County, New York.  Accordingly you and the sites and the IVI parties consent to the exclusive personal jurisdiction and venue of such courts for such matters.

This section can only be changed or terminated upon mutual written agreement.

Miscellaneous
The failure of the sites and the IVI parties to act with respect to a breach of the Terms by you or others does not constitute a waiver and will not limit the sites or the IVI parties rights with respect to such breach or any subsequent breaches.  The sites and IVI parties may assign their rights and duties under these Terms to any party at any time without notice to you.  If any provision of these Terms will by 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.  You agree that these Terms will not be constructed against the sites or the IVI parties by virtue of having drafted them.  The sites reserve the right to deny access to all or part of the sites to you or any person it its sole discretion without notice or liability of any kind.
