If we fail to enforce any provision of these Terms, that failure will not preclude us from enforcing either that provision (or any similar provision) on a later occasion.

These Terms are governed by the laws of the state of Illinois. You and we both agree to the exclusive jurisdiction and venue of the state and federal courts in Illinois and stipulate to the fairness and convenience of proceedings in such courts for all disputes arising out of or relating to use of the Services.
