Any dispute or claim relating in any way to your use of any Service, or to any products or services sold, procured or distributed by us will be resolved by binding arbitration, rather than in court, except that you may assert claims in small claims court if your claims qualify.
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 this Agreement as a court would.
We each agree that any dispute resolution proceedings will be conducted only on an individual basis and not in a class, consolidated or representative action. If for any reason a claim proceeds in court rather than in arbitration we each waive any right to a jury trial (if applicable). We also both agree that you or we may bring suit in court to enjoin infringement or other misuse of intellectual property rights.
No action arising out of this Agreement or your access to or use of our Services, regardless of form or the basis of the claim, may be brought by you more than one (1) year after the cause of action has arisen (or if multiple causes, from the date the first such cause arose) and you hereby waive any longer statute of limitations that may be permitted by law.
Site Policies, Modification, and Severability
Please review any other relevant policies posted on this site. These policies also govern your use of our Services. We reserve the right to make changes to our site, policies, Service Terms, and this Agreement at any time. Should you deem any such addition, deletion, or modification to the Agreement unacceptable, you should stop accessing, and/or using the Services.
If any of these conditions shall be deemed invalid, void, or for any reason unenforceable, that condition shall be deemed severable and shall not affect the validity and enforceability of any remaining condition.
Unless otherwise specified herein, this Agreement constitutes the entire agreement between you, a user, and us with respect to the Services and supersedes all prior or contemporaneous communications and proposals (whether oral, written, or electronic) between you and us with regard to the Services. No failure or delay in enforcing any provision, exercising any option, or requiring performance, shall be construed to be a waiver of that or any other right in connection with the Agreement. You may not assign, by operation of law or otherwise, any rights or delegate any duties under the Agreement to any third party without prior written consent by us. Any purported assignment lacking such consent will be void at its inception. We may assign all or part of its rights and/or delegate all or part of its duties under the Agreement to any party, at any time, and in its sole discretion, upon notice of assignment by posting such notice on the Services. If you have any comments or questions about our Services, please contact us at:
