14. Governing Law. These Terms are governed by the laws of the State of Idaho without regard to conflict of law principles. If a lawsuit or court proceeding is permitted under these Terms, you and Focus agree to submit to the personal and exclusive jurisdiction of the state courts and federal courts located within Coeur d’Alene, Idaho for the purpose of litigating any dispute. We operate the Focus Academy Service from our offices in Idaho, and we make no representation that Focus Materials included in the Focus Academy Service are appropriate or available for use in other locations.

15. General. These Terms, the Privacy Policy, and any other agreements expressly incorporated by reference into these Terms, are the entire and exclusive understanding and agreement between you and Focus regarding your use of the Focus Academy Service. You may not assign or transfer these Terms or your rights under these Terms, in whole or in part, by operation of law or otherwise, without our prior written consent. We may assign these Terms at any time without notice or consent. The failure to require performance of any provision will not affect our right to require performance at any other time after that, nor will a waiver by us of any breach or default of these Terms, or any provision of these Terms, be a waiver of any subsequent breach or default or a waiver of the provision itself. Use of section headers in these Terms is for convenience only and will not have any impact on the interpretation of any provision. If any part of these Terms is held to be invalid or unenforceable, the unenforceable part will be given effect to the greatest extent possible, and the remaining parts will remain in full force and effect. Upon termination of these Terms, any provision that by its nature or express terms should survive, will survive.

What People Are Saying:

Wow! It's been so life changing and I want to make sure everybody knows: If you're even considering doing FOCUS Academy, take the leap! Do it!

My biggest take away from the Certification Series is how we can lead with brain-based development and incorporate that into our treatment plans and exams to lead with chiropractic and not base everything off of a marketing scheme or a scan.

Dr. Gabriela Ludeman Quill, DC

Through this program, I am able to change the lives of so many kids and adults and am easily becoming the most trusted advisor in my area in working with kids and adults with learning, behavioral and socialization challenges.
