You promise that if you break any of these rules and cause any damage that you will be responsible for it just like if you break somebody else’s garage rules.

If you break any of the rules in these Terms, you may no longer be allowed to use the Hagerty website.
To the maximum extent permitted by law, these terms are governed by the laws of the State of Michigan excluding its conflicts of laws rules, and you hereby consent to the exclusive jurisdiction and venue for any claim or action arising out of or related to these terms or your use of the Hagerty Website shall be in the courts located in the county of Grand Traverse or in the Western District of Michigan in the State of Michigan, and you further agree and submit to the exercise of personal jurisdiction of such courts for the purpose of litigating any such claim or action.
You also agree that in the event of any action to enforce or interpret these terms, the prevailing party shall be entitled to collect its reasonable attorneys’ fees. Use of the Hagerty Website is unauthorized in any jurisdiction that does not give effect to all provisions of these terms, including without limitation this paragraph. You agree that any claim arising out of or related to these terms or your use of the Hagerty Website must be filed by you within one (1) year after such claim arose, or it is forever barred.
If there is any claim or lawsuit concerning these Terms, it will be governed by Michigan courts in Grand Traverse County, Michigan or federal courts in the Western District of Michigan. You must bring any claim you have within 1 year from when it happened or it won’t be allowed.
You agree that no joint venture, partnership, employment, or agency relationship exists between you and Hagerty as a result of this agreement or use of the Hagerty Website.
Hagerty’s performance of this agreement is subject to existing laws and legal process, and nothing contained in this agreement is in derogation of Hagerty’s right to comply with governmental, court and law enforcement requests or requirements relating to your use of the Hagerty Website or information provided to or gathered by Hagerty with respect to such use.
If any part of this agreement is determined to be invalid or unenforceable pursuant to applicable law including, but not limited to, the warranty disclaimers and liability limitations set forth above, then the invalid or unenforceable provision will be deemed superseded by a valid, enforceable provision that most closely matches the intent of the original provision and the remainder of the agreement shall continue in effect. Unless otherwise specified here, this agreement constitutes the entire agreement between the user and Hagerty with respect to the Hagerty Website and it supersedes all prior or contemporaneous communications and proposals, whether electronic, oral or written, between the user and Hagerty with respect to the use of the Hagerty Website.
A printed version of this agreement and of any notice given in electronic form shall be admissible in judicial or administrative proceedings based upon or relating to this agreement to the same extent and subject to the same conditions as other business documents and records originally generated and maintained in printed form. It is the express wish of the parties that this agreement and all related documents be drawn up in English and the English language meaning of the terms will govern your relationship with Hagerty.
You agree that if Hagerty does not exercise or enforce any legal right or remedy which is contained in the terms (or which Hagerty has the benefit of under any applicable law), this will not be taken to be a formal waiver of Hagerty’s rights and that those rights or remedies will still be available to Hagerty.
If any of these Terms or part of them is ever found invalid, all of the remaining parts will still be fully valid. We have not forfeited any rights that we have under these terms just because we haven’t acted on it yet.
