12. General Provisions
UFP makes no claims that the Websites or Content may be lawfully viewed or downloaded outside of the United States.

If you access the Websites or Content from outside the United States, you do so at your own risk and are responsible for any violations of the laws of your jurisdiction.
UFP is based in Massachusetts, and the servers that host its Websites and these Terms are located here. Therefore, these Terms are governed by the internal substantive laws of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts, without respect to its conflict of laws principles, and you agree to be bound by these laws. You also agree that in the event there is a dispute or claim that arises from or relates to these Terms or their breach, any such dispute or claim shall be brought exclusively in the state or federal courts within the Commonwealth of Massachusetts, and you agree irrevocably to jurisdiction and venue in those courts.
You agree that you may not bring any claim or action in any form that arises from or relates to the Websites, the Content, or these Terms more than twelve (12) months after the first occurrence of the events on which you base your claim. If any provision of these Terms is found to be invalid by any court having competent jurisdiction, the invalidity of that provision will not affect the validity of the remaining provisions of these Terms, which will remain in full force and effect.
These Terms cannot be modified or waived except by UFP in writing or by a revised posting on the Websites. If UFP does decide to waive any breach of these Terms by you, that waiver is limited, to the particular breach and the particular provision that was breached. The waiver is not continuing, and UFP has the right to enforce all of the Terms against you for any other breach.
These Terms and Conditions constitute the entire agreement between you and UFP concerning the Websites and the Content.
