IVS may in its discretion revise or update these Terms from time to time. You should check the Terms regularly for updates. You can determine when the Terms were last revised by referring to the “Last modified” legend at the top of this page. Any material changes in these Terms take effect upon the Last modified date, unless we provide notice or have other communications with you. Each time you access, use or browse the Site, you signify your acceptance of the then-current Terms.
Certain areas of the Site (and your access to or use of certain aspects or portions of the Services) may have different terms and conditions posted or may require you to agree with and accept additional terms and conditions (“Additional Terms“). If there is a conflict between the terms and conditions of these Terms and terms and conditions of any Additional Terms, the terms and conditions of the Additional Terms will take precedence with respect to your use of or access to that area of the Site or the Services.
If any part of these Terms is held invalid or unenforceable, that portion shall be construed in a manner consistent with applicable law to reflect, as nearly as possible, the original intentions of the parties, and the remaining portions shall remain in full force and effect. IVS’s failure to enforce any right or provisions in these Terms will not constitute a waiver of such or any other provision.
