Survival of Certain Provisions
The termination of these Terms for any reason will not terminate the obligations or liabilities of the parties under these Terms regarding warranties, liabilities, proprietary rights and all others that by their sense and context are intended to survive the execution, delivery, performance, termination and expiration of the Agreement.
Governing Law & Dispute Resolution
These Terms are governed, construed and enforced in accordance with the laws of the Commonwealth of Virginia, without giving effect to its conflicts of law rules. Before seeking legal recourse for any harm you believe you have suffered from your access to our Website, you will give us written notice specifying the harm and thirty (30) days to cure the harm after providing such notice. To the fullest extent permitted by law, you and we agree to submit exclusively any claim, controversy or dispute arising out of or relating to the Website, the Services, this Agreement or any other policies or other terms incorporated therein (including the breach, termination, enforcement, interpretation, enforceability, validity, or rights under any of any of the foregoing) (each, a “Dispute”) for resolution by confidential, individual, binding arbitration, except that you may assert claims in small claims court if your claims qualify.
To the fullest extent permitted by law: (i) you expressly waive any right you may have to arbitrate a dispute as a class action; and (ii) you also expressly waive your right to a jury trial.
There is no judge or jury in arbitration, and court review of an arbitration award is limited. However, an arbitrator can award on an individual basis the same damages and relief as a court (including injunctive and declaratory relief or statutory damages), and must follow the terms of these Terms as a court would.
The arbitration will be held in Virginia. If this location is not convenient for you, please let us know. We will work with you to determine a mutually convenient location. Any disagreements regarding the forum for arbitration will be settled by the arbitrator.
Disputes will be arbitrated on an individual basis and not as a class action. In the event that arbitration is not permitted by applicable law: (i) the parties expressly agree that any Dispute will be brought and heard solely and exclusively in the federal or state courts of competent jurisdiction located in Virginia. The parties waive any plea or defense that such courts are not the appropriate venue or that they are not subject to personal jurisdiction of such courts.
The arbitration will be administered by JAMS. You may obtain a copy of the rules of JAMS by contacting the organization. Each of us shall agree on one arbitrator to conduct the arbitration. In the event the parties cannot agree on an arbitrator, the arbitrator will be selected in accordance with the JAMS rules.
Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in this Section, to the extent either party in any manner has violated or threatened to violate the other party’s intellectual property rights, the non-breaching party may seek injunctive or other appropriate relief in any state or federal court of competent jurisdiction.
