GENERAL
These Terms of Use are governed by the laws of the Province of Rome, Italy, without regard to the rules of conflict which may cause the laws of another jurisdiction to apply. You agree to the sole and exclusive jurisdiction and venue of the courts of Rome, Italy in the event of any dispute of any kind arising from or relating to the Site, or your use or review of it.

If for any reason a court of competent jurisdiction finds any provision or portion of these Terms of Use to be unenforceable, the remainder of these Terms of Use will continue in full force and effect.
