15. GENERAL
THE TERMS OF USE AND THE RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN YOU AND VEREIT, INCLUDING WITHOUT LIMITATION ITS SPONSORED FUNDS, SHALL BE GOVERNED BY THE LAWS OF THE STATE OF ARIZONA WITHOUT REGARD TO ITS CONFLICT OF LAW PROVISIONS. Subject to Section 12 (Arbitration), you and VEREIT agree to submit to the non-exclusive jurisdiction of the courts located within the County of Maricopa, State of Arizona, provided that any lawsuits or other claims brought by you must be brought within the County of Maricopa, State of Arizona. You hereby consent and submit to the in personam jurisdiction of such courts, waive any objection based on forum non conveniens and waive any objection to venue of any action instituted hereunder to the extent that an action is brought in the courts identified above. The failure of VEREIT to exercise or enforce any right or provision of the Terms of Use shall not constitute a waiver of such right or provision. If any provision of the Terms of Use is found by a court of competent jurisdiction to be invalid, the parties nevertheless agree that the court should endeavor to give effect to the parties' intentions as reflected in the provision, and the other provisions of the Terms of Use remain in full force and effect. The section titles in the Terms of Use are for convenience only and have no legal or contractual effect. VEREIT shall not be liable for delays or failure to make the Web Site (including without limitation the Content) available if due to any cause or conditions beyond VEREIT's reasonable control, including, but not limited to, delays or failures due to acts of God, acts of civil or military authority, fire, flood, strikes, wars, failure of the Internet backbone or shortage of power. VEREIT agrees to make the Web Site available hereunder as an independent contractor, and in no event shall the employees and/or agents of VEREIT or any of its subsidiaries and affiliates, including without limitation its affiliate funds, be deemed your employees and/or agents. Each party acknowledges that it is not entering into these Terms of Use on the basis of any representation not expressly contained in the Terms of Use. The Terms of Use and any broker-dealer, investor or customer agreement that may be executed constitute the entire agreement between you and VEREIT concerning this subject matter, and supersedes and cancels any and all prior or contemporaneous agreements or contracts, whether written or oral.
