    Governing Law and Jurisdiction. 
    These Terms of Use will be governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of the District of Columbia, without reference to its choice of law rules. By accessing, viewing, or using the material in the VES Media, you consent to the exclusive jurisdiction of the federal and state courts presiding in the District of Columbia, and agree to accept service of process by mail and hereby waive any and all jurisdictional and venue defenses otherwise available. The VES Media are controlled and operated from within the United States. VES makes no representation that materials in the VES Media are appropriate or available for use in other locations, and access to them from territories where their contents are illegal is prohibited. Those who choose to access the VES Media from other locations do so of their own volition and are responsible for compliance with applicable local laws.  You agree that the Site and any other element of the VES Media are a passive service that does not give rise to personal jurisdiction over VES or its affiliates or their respective directors, officers, employees or agents, either specific or general, in jurisdictions other than the District of Columbia.

    You hereby irrevocably waive any right you may have to trial by jury in any such dispute, action or proceeding. Any cause of action between VES and the user must commence within one (1) year after the cause of action accrues; otherwise the cause of action is permanently barred.

    Miscellaneous Provisions
    These Terms of Use, together with the Privacy Policy, constitute the entire agreement between VES and its users. If any portion of these Terms of Use is found to be invalid or unenforceable by a court of competent jurisdiction, the invalidity of such provision shall not affect the validity of the remaining terms and conditions, which shall remain in full force and effect. In the event that VES fails to enforce any of these terms and conditions, such failure does not constitute a waiver. Moreover, any explicit waiver made by VES as to any term or condition does not constitute a waiver of any other term or condition. The user may not transfer any of his or her rights or obligations to anyone else without VES’s written consent. VES retains the right to freely assign its own rights and obligations.
    If you have any questions concerning these Terms of Use, please contact us.
