These Terms and Conditions and your use of this Site shall be governed by and construed for both substantive and procedural purposes in accordance with the laws of the Commonwealth of Puerto Rico, USA, without giving effect to any principles of any choice or conflict of law provision or rule that would cause the laws of any jurisdiction other than those of the District of San Juan to apply.

Arbitration under these Terms and Conditions shall be conducted under the rules then prevailing of the American Arbitration Association in accordance with its Commercial Arbitration Rules and before a single arbitrator.
Ultimately, the selected arbitrator must have expertise in the subject matter of the dispute.

The Visa policy of the United States deals with the requirements which a foreign national wishing to enter the United States must meet to obtain a visa, which is a permit to travel to, enter, and remain in the United States. Visitors to the United States must obtain a visa from one of the United States diplomatic missions unless they come from one of the visa-exempt countries or Visa Waiver Program countries. The same rules apply to Puerto Rico and the United States’ Virgin Islands, while different rules apply to the rest of US territories namely, Guam, Northern Mariana Islands, and American Samoa.
The Electronic System for Travel Authorization is an automated system used to determine the eligibility of visitors to travel to the United States under the Visa Waiver Program (VWP) and whether such travel poses any law enforcement or security risk. The US VISA Authorization System performs checks against law enforcement databases. All travelers seeking admission to the United States are required to obtain an Electronic Entry Permit using this system prior to being granted boarding.
If your US visa travel authorization application is approved, it establishes that you are eligible to travel, but does NOT establish that you are admissible to enter the United States. Upon arrival to the United States, you will be inspected by a Border Officer at a port of entry who may determine that you are inadmissible for any reason under American law. A determination that you are not eligible for US travel authorization does NOT preclude you from applying for a VISA to travel to the United States.
All information provided by you, or on your behalf by a designated third party, must be true and correct. A US VISA or an Electronic Travel Authorization may be revoked at any time and for any reason, such as new information influencing eligibility. You may be subject to administrative or criminal penalties if you knowingly and willfully make a materially false, fictitious, or fraudulent statement or representation in an Electronic Entry Permit or in a VISA application submitted by you or on your behalf.
