Applicable Law and Jurisdiction

The Site (excluding links to Web sites operated by others) is controlled and operated by the Getty and its agents from offices in and around Los Angeles, California. Although the Getty has made no effort to publish the Site elsewhere, it is accessible in all fifty U.S. states and in other countries due to its presence on the World Wide Web. As each of these states and countries has laws which differ from those of California and from each other, and as you and the Getty both benefit from establishing a predictable legal environment in which to publish, access and use the Site, your publishing, accessing, and/or use of the Site will be governed by the laws of the State of California, without regard to its conflict of laws principles. You agree that all claims you may have arising from or relating to the operation or use of the Site will be heard and resolved in the courts of Los Angeles, California. You consent to personal jurisdiction of such courts over you, stipulate to the fairness and convenience of proceeding in such courts, and covenant not to assert any objection to proceeding in such courts. If you choose to access the Site from locations other than Los Angeles, California you will be responsible for compliance with all local laws of such other locations.
