The Site is controlled within the United States of America.

Headings are for reference only and in no way define, limit, construe or describe the scope or extent of such section. FORBIE’s failure to act with respect to any failure by you or others to comply with these Terms does not waive its right to act with respect to subsequent or similar failures.

There are no third party beneficiaries to these Terms.
