Subject to Section 12 (Arbitration), you and TIER REIT agree to submit to the nonexclusive jurisdiction of the courts located within the County of Dallas, State of Texas, provided that any lawsuits or other claims brought by you must be brought exclusively within the County of Dallas, State of Texas. You hereby consent and submit to the exclusive in personam jurisdiction of such courts, waive any objection based on forum non conveniens and waive any objection to venue of any action instituted hereunder to the extent that an action is brought in the courts identified above.

The section titles in the Terms and Conditions are for convenience only and have no legal or contractual effect. TIER REIT shall not be liable for delays or failure to make this Website (including without limitation the Content) available, whether or not due to any cause or conditions beyond TIER REIT’s reasonable control. TIER REIT agrees to make this Website available hereunder as an independent contractor, and in no event shall the employees and/or agents of TIER REIT or any of the other TIER REIT Entities be deemed your employees and/or agents. Each party acknowledges that it is not entering into these Terms and Conditions on the basis of any representation not expressly contained in the Terms and Conditions. The Terms and Conditions constitutes the entire agreement between you and TIER REIT (and the other TIER REIT Entities) concerning subject matter of these Terms and Conditions, and supersedes and cancels any and all prior or contemporaneous agreements (including any prior terms and conditions) or contracts, whether written or oral.
