    20.       General

    You agree that: (i) the Website shall be deemed solely based in Texas, United States of America; and (ii) the Website shall be deemed a passive website that does not give rise to personal jurisdiction over Mentoring Minds, either specific or general, in jurisdictions other than Texas. These Terms of Use shall be governed solely by United States and Texas law, without regard to conflict of law provisions.  The parties expressly reject the application of the United Nations Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods to these Terms of Use. Any claim or dispute between You and Mentoring Minds or its officers, directors, employees, agents, affiliates, licensors or suppliers that arises in whole or in part from the Website shall be decided exclusively by a court of competent jurisdiction located in Smith County, Texas. You further irrevocably agree to submit to the personal jurisdiction of the courts located within Smith County, Texas for the purpose of resolving all such claims or disputes. These Terms of Use, the Terms of Sale, the Children’s Privacy Notice, the Privacy Policy, and any other legal notices published by Mentoring Minds on the Website shall constitute the entire agreement between You and Mentoring Minds concerning the Website. If any provision of these Terms of Use are held by a court or other tribunal of competent jurisdiction, to be invalid, void, or unenforceable, such provision shall be limited or eliminated to the minimum extent necessary and replaced with a valid provision that best embodies the intent of these Terms of Use, so that these Terms of Use shall remain in full force and effect.  If a copy of these Terms of Use is translated into another language, the official and binding version shall be the English language version, which shall prevail in all instances.  No waiver of any term of these Terms of Use shall be deemed a further or continuing waiver of such term or any other term, and Mentoring Minds’ failure to assert any right or provision under these Terms of Use shall not constitute a waiver of such right or provision.
