9. Governing Law; Jurisdiction
The Sites (excluding linked sites) are controlled by IWC from its offices within the United States of America. By accessing the Sites, you and IWC agree that all matters relating to your access to, or use of, these Sites shall be governed by the statutes and laws of the State of New York and United States of America, excluding conflict of law principles.

This Agreement and other rules, guidelines, licenses and disclaimers posted via the Sites constitute the entire agreement between IWC and you with respect to your access to or use of the Sites, superseding any prior agreements between you and IWC on such subject matter (including any prior versions of this Agreement). Notwithstanding the foregoing, to the extent that any terms set forth in this Agreement expressly contradict any terms of a written agreement between you and IWC regarding the use of specific services or materials (“Executed Agreement”), the terms set forth in the Executed Agreement shall control. You may also be subject to additional terms and conditions that may apply when you use other IWC services, third-party content, or third-party software.

Any failure by IWC to enforce or exercise any provision of this Agreement or related right shall not constitute a waiver of that right or provision. The section titles used in this Agreement are purely for convenience and carry with them no legal or contractual effect.
