Certain portions of this Section are deemed to be a “written agreement to arbitrate” pursuant to the Federal Arbitration Act (“FAA”). You and Company agree that we intend that this Section satisfies the “writing” requirement of the FAA. This Section can only be amended by mutual agreement.
First – Try to Resolve Disputes and Excluded Disputes. If any controversy, allegation, or claim arises out of or relates to the Site, the Content, your Communications, the Terms, or any Additional Terms, whether heretofore or hereafter arising (collectively, “Dispute”), or to any of Company’s actual or alleged intellectual property rights (an “Excluded Dispute”, which includes those actions set forth in Section (D), then you and we agree to send a written notice to the other providing a reasonable description of the Dispute or Excluded Dispute, along with a proposed resolution of it. Our notice to you will be sent to you based on the most recent contact information that you provide us. But if no such contact information exists or if such information is not current, then we have no obligation under this Section (A). To provide us notice of an arbitration demand, send the demand to our registered agent or send the demand as a written email notice via the Contact Us form, with the subject “Attn: Legal Department.” For a period of sixty (60) days from the date of receipt of notice from the other party, Company and you will engage in a dialogue in order to attempt to resolve the Dispute or Excluded Dispute.
Binding Arbitration. If we cannot resolve a Dispute as set forth in Section (A) (or agree to arbitration in writing with respect to an Excluded Dispute) within sixty (60) days of receipt of the notice, then ANY AND ALL DISPUTES ARISING BETWEEN YOU AND COMPANY MUST BE RESOLVED BY FINAL AND BINDING ARBITRATION. THIS INCLUDES ANY AND ALL DISPUTES BASED IN CONTRACT, STATUTE, REGULATION, ORDINANCE, TORT AND WHETHER ARISING BEFORE OR AFTER THE EFFECTIVE DATE OF THE TERMS. The FAA shall govern the arbitrability of all disputes between Company and you regarding the Terms (and any Additional Terms) and the Site, including the No Class Action Matters section below. BY AGREEING TO ARBITRATE, EACH PARTY IS GIVING UP ITS RIGHT TO GO TO COURT AND HAVE ANY DISPUTE HEARD BY A JUDGE OR JURY.
The arbitration will be conducted by American Arbitration Association (“AAA”) under its then current Commercial Dispute Rules by a single arbitrator experienced in commercial disputes. Payment of all filing, administration, and arbitrator fees will be governed by the AAA’s rules. However, unless the arbitrator determines that your claim(s) were frivolous or asserted in bad faith we will reimburse those fees for claims totaling less than $2,500. Likewise, Company will not seek attorneys' fees and costs in arbitration unless permitted by law and the arbitrator determines the claim(s) asserted against Company are frivolous or brought in bad faith. This arbitration provision shall survive termination of the Terms or the Site.
Limited Time to File Claims. TO THE FULLEST EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW, IF YOU OR WE WANT TO ASSERT A DISPUTE (BUT NOT A EXCLUDED DISPUTE) AGAINST THE OTHER, THEN YOU OR WE MUST COMMENCE IT (BY DELIVERY OF WRITTEN NOTICE AS SET FORTH IN SECTION (A)) WITHIN ONE (1) YEAR AFTER THE DISPUTE ARISES -- OR IT WILL BE FOREVER BARRED.
Injunctive Relief. The foregoing provisions of this Section will not apply to any legal action taken by Company to seek an injunction or other equitable relief in connection with, any loss, cost, or damage (or any potential loss, cost, or damage) relating to the Site, any Content, your Communications and/or Company’s intellectual property rights (including such Company may claim that may be in dispute), Company’s operations, and/or Company’s products or services.
No Class Action Matters. YOU AND COMPANY AGREE THAT EACH MAY BRING CLAIMS AGAINST THE OTHER ONLY IN YOUR OR ITS INDIVIDUAL CAPACITY, AND NOT AS A PLAINTIFF OR CLASS MEMBER IN ANY PURPORTED CLASS OR REPRESENTATIVE PROCEEDING OR AS AN ASSOCIATION. Disputes will be arbitrated only on an individual basis and will not be joined or consolidated with any other arbitrations or other proceedings that involve any claim or controversy of any other party. There shall be no right or authority for any Dispute to be arbitrated on a class action basis or on any basis involving Disputes brought in a purported representative capacity on behalf of the general public, or other persons or entities similarly situated. But if, for any reason, any court with competent jurisdiction holds that this restriction is unconscionable or unenforceable, then our agreement in Section (B) to arbitrate will not apply and the Dispute must be brought exclusively in court pursuant to Section (F). Notwithstanding any other provision of this Section, any and all issues relating to the scope, interpretation and enforceability of the class action waiver provisions contained herein (described in this “No Class Action Matters” section), are to be decided only by a court of competent jurisdiction, and not by the arbitrator. The arbitrator does not have the power to vary these class action waiver provisions.
Federal and State Courts in Dallas, Texas. Except where arbitration is required above, small claims actions, or with respect to the enforcement of any arbitration decision or award, any action or proceeding relating to any Dispute or Excluded Dispute arising hereunder may only be instituted in state or Federal court in Dallas, Texas. Accordingly, you and Company consent to the exclusive personal jurisdiction and venue of such courts for such matters.
Small Claims Matters Are Excluded from Arbitration Requirement. Notwithstanding the foregoing, either of us may bring qualifying claim of Disputes (but not Excluded Disputes) in small claims court of competent jurisdiction. Notwithstanding any other provision in the Terms to the contrary, to the extent Company makes a material change to this dispute resolution provision, such change will not apply to any dispute that you provided Company notice of prior to the change in the dispute resolution provision.
Waiver of Injunctive or Other Equitable Relief
IF YOU CLAIM THAT YOU HAVE INCURRED ANY LOSS, DAMAGES, OR INJURIES IN CONNECTION WITH YOUR USE OF THE SITE, THEN THE LOSSES, DAMAGES, AND INJURIES WILL NOT BE IRREPARABLE OR SUFFICIENT TO ENTITLE YOU TO AN INJUNCTION OR TO OTHER EQUITABLE RELIEF OF ANY KIND. THIS MEANS THAT, IN CONNECTION WITH YOUR CLAIM, YOU AGREE THAT YOU WILL NOT SEEK, AND THAT YOU WILL NOT BE PERMITTED TO OBTAIN, ANY COURT OR OTHER ACTION THAT MAY INTERFERE WITH OR PREVENT THE DEVELOPMENT OR EXPLOITATION OF ANY WEBSITE, APPLICATION, CONTENT, COMMUNICATIONS, PRODUCT, SERVICE, OR INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY OWNED, LICENSED, USED OR CONTROLLED BY COMPANY (INCLUDING YOUR LICENSED COMMUNICATIONS) OR A LICENSOR OF COMPANY.
Company’s Consent or Approval. As to any provision in the Terms or any Additional Terms that grants Company a right of consent or approval, or permits Company to exercise a right in its “sole discretion,” Company may exercise that right in its sole and absolute discretion. No Company consent or approval may be deemed to have been granted by Company without being in writing and signed by an officer of Company.
Applicable Law. The Terms and any Additional Terms will be governed by and construed in accordance with, and any Dispute and Excluded Dispute will be resolved in accordance with, the laws of the State of Texas, without regard to its conflicts of law provisions.
Indemnity. You agree to, and you hereby, defend, indemnify, and hold Company harmless from and against any and all claims, damages, losses, costs, investigations, liabilities, judgments, fines, penalties, settlements, interest, and expenses (including attorneys’ fees) that directly or indirectly arise from or are related to any claim, suit, action, demand, or proceeding made or brought against Company, or on account of the investigation, defense, or settlement thereof, arising out of or in connection with, whether occurring heretofore or hereafter: (i) your Communications; (ii) your use of the Site and your activities in connection with the Site; (iii) your breach or alleged breach of the Terms or any Additional Terms; (iv) your violation or alleged violation of any laws, rules, regulations, codes, statutes, ordinances, or orders of any governmental or quasi-governmental authorities in connection with your use of the Site or your activities in connection with the Site; (v) information or material transmitted through your Device, even if not submitted by you, that infringes, violates, or misappropriates any copyright, trademark, trade secret, trade dress, patent, publicity, privacy, or other right of any person or entity; (vi) any misrepresentation made by you; (vii) failure to update your contact information (including your telephone number), your voluntary provision of a telephone number that is not your own, and/or from your violation of any federal, state, or local law, regulation, or ordinance; (viii) Company’s use of the information that you submit to us (including your Communications); and (ix) any claims under the Federal Telephone Consumer Protection Act or its state law equivalent, relating to your voluntary provision of a telephone number that is not owned by you and/or your failure to notify Company of any changes in your contact information, including telephone number (all of the foregoing, "Claims and Losses"). You will cooperate as fully required by Company in the defense of any Claim and Losses. Notwithstanding the foregoing, Company retains the exclusive right to settle, compromise, and pay any and all Claims and Losses. Company reserves the right to assume the exclusive defense and control of any Claims and Losses. You will not settle any Claims and Losses without, in each instance, the prior written consent of an officer of Company.

Company controls and operates the Site from its offices in the U.S.A., and Company makes no representation that the Site is appropriate or available for use beyond the U.S.A., Canada, and Mexico.

WITH RESPECT TO THESE TERMS, YOU AND WE DISCLAIM ANY APPLICATION OF, AND EXPRESSLY AGREE THAT THE TERMS WILL NOT BE GOVERNED BY, THE UNITED NATIONS CONVENTIONS ON CONTRACTS FOR THE INTERNATIONAL SALE OF GOODS, IF OTHERWISE APPLICABLE.
Severability; Interpretation. If any provision of the Terms, or any Additional Terms, is for any reason deemed invalid, unlawful, void, or unenforceable by a court or arbitrator of competent jurisdiction, then that provision will be deemed severable from the Terms or the Additional Terms, and the invalidity of the provision will not affect the validity or enforceability of the remainder of the Terms or the Additional Terms (which will remain in full force and effect).
Investigations; Cooperation with Law Enforcement; Termination; Survival. Company reserves the right, without any limitation, to: (i) investigate any suspected breaches of its Site security or its information technology or other systems or networks, (ii) investigate any suspected breaches of the Terms and any Additional Terms, (iii) investigate any information obtained by Company in connection with reviewing law enforcement databases or complying with criminal laws, (iv) involve and cooperate with law enforcement authorities in investigating any of the foregoing matters, (v) prosecute violators of the Terms and any Additional Terms, and (vi) discontinue the Site, in whole or in part, or, except as may be expressly set forth in any Additional Terms, suspend or terminate your access to it, in whole or in part, including any user accounts or registrations, at any time, without notice, for any reason and without any obligation to you or any third party.
