Nothing in these Terms and Conditions is intended to limit or exclude any liability on the part of the NHVRC where and to the extent that applicable laws prohibit such exclusion or limitation.

Governing Law and Jurisdiction

The NHVRC website is operated in the Commonwealth of Virginia in the United States of America.

You irrevocably and unconditionally consent and submit to the exclusive jurisdiction of the state and federal courts in the Commonwealth of Virginia over any action or proceeding relating to the Terms and Conditions.

General

NHVRC reserves the right to terminate or suspend access to this website at any time without notice and for any reason whatsoever. These Terms and Conditions, including the Privacy Policy, constitute the entire agreement between you and the NHVRC with respect to your use of this website and supersede all previous agreements, understandings, and representations relating thereto. No failure by the NHVRC to exercise any rights, powers, or remedies hereunder or its delay to do so shall constitute a waiver of these rights, powers, or remedies. The single or partial exercise of a right, power, or remedy shall not prevent its subsequent exercise or the exercise of any other right, power, or remedy. If any provision of these Terms and Conditions or part thereof is or becomes illegal, invalid, or unenforceable in any jurisdiction, the illegality, invalidity, or unenforceability of that provision will not affect the legality, validity, or enforceability of the remainder of the provision or the remaining provisions of these Terms and Conditions, as the case may be, or the legality, validity, or enforceability of that provision or part thereof in any other jurisdiction.
