General Matters
These terms of use constitute the entire agreement between you and Teachers Life regarding your use of our website, superseding any prior agreements between you and Teachers Life.

You and Teachers Life agree to submit to the non-exclusive jurisdiction of the courts located in Toronto, Ontario. The failure of Teachers Life to exercise or enforce any right or provision of these terms of use shall not constitute a waiver of such right or provision. If any provision of these terms of use is found by a court of competent jurisdiction to be invalid, the parties nevertheless agree that the court should endeavour to give effect to the parties’ intentions as reflected in the provision, and the other provisions of these terms of use remain in full force and effect.
