Changes to MIML website
Unless otherwise agreed, MetLife may discontinue or modify the MIML website at any time without prior notice to you including for reasons such as to reflect changes to our products or services, our users' needs or our business priorities, and you accept those modifications if you continue to use the MIML website.

No reliance on any forward-looking information
The MIML website may contain information that includes or is based upon forward-looking statements within the meaning of the applicable securities laws. Forward-looking statements give MIML’s expectations or forecasts of future events. You can identify these statements by the fact that they do not relate strictly to historical or current facts. They typically use words such as "anticipate," "estimate," "expect," "project," "intend," "plan," "believe," and other similar words. Any or all of the forward-looking statements here or in other publications may turn out to be wrong. Forward-looking statements can be affected by inaccurate assumptions or by known or unknown risks and uncertainties. Many such factors will be important in determining actual future results. Consequently, there can be no assurance that the results described in such forward-looking statement will be realized. The risks and uncertainties that may cause actual results to differ materially from those expressed in such forward-looking statements include the following changes in general economic conditions, including the performance of financial markets and interest rates. MetLife specifically disclaims any obligation to update or revise any forward-looking statement, whether as a result of new information, future developments or otherwise. Given these uncertainties, you should not place undue reliance on these forward-looking statements.
If a court of competent jurisdiction holds any provision of these Terms to be invalid or unenforceable, then such provision will be deemed limited or eliminated to the minimum extent necessary and enforced to the maximum extent permissible, and all of the other provisions of these Terms will remain enforceable and in full effect. No failure or delay of MetLife in enforcing any term, exercising any option or requiring performance will be a waiver of that or any other right of TMR.
