General

These Terms, which includes the Privacy Policy, is the complete agreement between you and the Foundation regarding your use of Our Site, supersedes all other agreements (oral or written) between you and the Foundation, and is governed by and should be construed according to the laws of the State of New York applicable to agreements made and completely performed in New York, unless doing so would lead to the application of the laws of another jurisdiction.  You irrevocably agree (A) to bring any claim or dispute relating to your use of Our Site and these Terms exclusively in the state and federal courts located in the State and County of New York, (B) to submit to the exclusive jurisdiction of those courts, and (C) to waive any objection to those courts based on inconvenience or other reasons.  You may not assign your rights under these Terms without the Foundation’s prior written consent, and any attempted assignment will be null and void.  If a court of competent jurisdiction determines that any provision of these Terms is unenforceable for any reason, then that provision will be deleted (or, if possible, modified in a manner that will effect the original intent as closely as possible) and the remaining provisions will be enforceable to the fullest extent permitted by law (unless doing so would deprive either party of a material benefit of these Terms).  The failure of a party to assert any right under these Terms will not be considered a waiver of that party’s right, which will remain in full force and effect.  The term “including” in these Terms is intended to be illustrative and means “including without limitation.”
