10. DISPUTES

The Terms of Use, your access and use of the Site and the ARI Services and the relationship between you and ARI is governed by the laws of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts, without giving effect to its conflict of law provisions.

Regardless of any statute or law to the contrary, any claim or cause of action by you arising out of or related to use of the Site or the Terms of Use must be filed within one (1) year after such claim or cause of action arose or be forever barred. In the event of any conflict between foreign laws, rules and regulations and those of the United States, the laws, rules and regulations of the United States will govern.

12. OTHER

Linking To or From the ARI Web Site: ARI is not responsible for any content, advertising, products, services or other materials on or available from web sites that are linked to or from ARI (including without limitation web sites that may be linked to by another User, and which may be reached by you as part of a search you conduct using the ARI Services). ARI is not responsible or liable, directly or indirectly, for any damage or loss caused or alleged to be caused by or in connection with use of or reliance on any content, advertising, products, services or other materials on those web sites. The sites displayed as search results or linked to by the ARI Services are developed by people over whom ARI exercises no control, and ARI may not screen the sites before including them in the indices from which such automated search results are gathered. A search using the ARI Services may produce search results and links to sites that some people find objectionable, inappropriate, or offensive.

ARI may assign its rights and duties under these Terms of Use without such assignment being considered a change to the Terms of Use and without notice to you. The Terms of Use are severable. In the event that any provision is determined to be unenforceable or invalid, such provision shall still be enforced to the fullest extent permitted by applicable law, and such determination shall not affect the validity and enforceability of any other remaining provisions. If ARI fails to enforce any provision of the Terms of Use, it shall not constitute a waiver of such provision. The Terms of Use will inure to the benefit of ARI’s successors, assignees and licensees. The Terms of Use, the Privacy Statement and the documents incorporated by reference (including without limitation a Client Agreement, if you decide to become a client-partner), and any modifications by ARI to the foregoing, constitute the entire understanding between ARI regarding your access to, license and use of the Site and the ARI Services, and they supersede any prior agreements, statements or representations with respect to the same.
