Choice of law, jurisdiction and binding arbitration. By visiting our website or using our Services, you acknowledge and agree that these Terms and all claims arising out of or related to it or our Services, shall be governed solely by the internal laws of the State of Florida, including without limitation applicable federal law and without reference to: (a) any conflicts of law principle that would apply the substantive laws of another jurisdiction to the parties’ rights or duties; (b) the 1980 United Nations Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods; or (c) other international laws.
STS and You agree that in the event of any dispute, the party wishing to address the dispute must first contact the other party in writing, including by e-mail, and advise the other party of the dispute in reasonable detail as well as informing the other party of the remedy being sought. The parties shall then make a good faith effort to resolve the dispute through negotiation and mediation, before resorting to more formal means of resolution. If the dispute is not resolved through a good faith effort through this informal procedure, the party raising the dispute may proceed to mandatory arbitration as set forth below.
The parties agree that should the informal process set forth in the preceding paragraph fail to resolve any dispute between us, then any and all disputes remaining will be resolved by binding arbitration. Each party knowingly and specifically waive any right to go to court to assert or
defend our or your respective rights. Except that matters that meet the jurisdictional requirements may be taken to small claims court. Except as set forth in these Terms any dispute arising out of or relating to these Terms, or our Services, including with respect to the interpretation of any provision of these Terms or other agreements between you and us, or concerning either party’s performance or obligations, shall be resolved by mandatory and binding arbitration submitted to the American Arbitration Association pursuant to its Commercial Arbitration Rules, or similar rules in effect at the time, for binding decision by a single arbitrator. The parties agree that the arbitrator shall, after reaching judgment and award, prepare and distribute to the parties a written statement stating the disposition of each claim, as well as a concise statement of the essential findings and conclusions on which the award is based. The award of the arbitrator(s) shall be final and binding on the parties and judgment may be entered in a court of competent jurisdiction. Unless you elect to conduct the arbitration by telephone or written submission, an in-person arbitration hearing will be conducted in Palm City, Martin County, Florida and the parties consent to the personal and exclusive jurisdiction of the arbitrator and venue for arbitration in Martin Country, Florida.
Each party shall bear its own costs and expenses and an equal share of the arbitrators’ and the administrative fees of arbitration.
The Federal Arbitration Act and federal arbitration law apply to these Terms. Either party also may, without waiving any remedy under these Terms, seek from any court having jurisdiction any interim or provisional relief that is necessary to protect the rights or property of that party, pending the establishment of the arbitral tribunal (or pending the arbitral tribunal’s determination of the merits of the controversy).
Without limiting the foregoing, the parties also agree that a party may bring suit in a Federal or State court having jurisdiction, located in Martin County, Florida to enjoin infringement or other misuse of intellectual property rights.
Class Action Waiver. You agree that you may only resolve disputes with us on an individual basis and may not bring a claim as a plaintiff or a class member in a class, consolidated, or representative action. You acknowledge and agree that class arbitrations, class actions, private attorney general actions, and consolidation with other arbitrations are not allowed.
The arbitrator may not consolidate more than one person’s claims and may not otherwise preside over any form of a class or representative proceeding or claims (such as a class action, consolidated action or private attorney general action) unless all relevant parties specifically agree to do so following initiation of the arbitration.
