Applicable Law and Jurisdiction
The Site (excluding links to Web Sites operated by others) is controlled and operated by Arie A. Galles from its offices in Southern California. Although The Artist 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 Worldwide Web. As each of these states and countries have laws which may differ from those of California and from each other, by visiting this website you agree that all matters arising from or relating to the use and operation 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.

From time to time these Terms and Conditions will be updated on The Site by posting new information. You are bound by such revisions and should periodically visit this page to review the then-current Terms and Conditions. If I look serious above ... it is only because disclosures and disclaimers are the antithesis of art ... but do need to be done.
