Changes to Terms; Updates
We reserve the right to change these Terms at any time, and in our sole discretion, by changing these Terms within the Website. The User’s continued use of the Website after any such changes to these Terms are made available through the Website will constitute the User’s acceptance of those changes. These Terms shall govern any updates to, or supplements or replacements for, the Website unless separate terms are provided in conjunction with such updates, supplements, or replacements – in which case such separate terms will apply.
You agree that your breach or threatened breach of these Terms will cause us irreparable injury for which recovery of monetary damages would be inadequate and that we, therefore, may obtain timely injunctive relief to protect our rights under these Terms in addition to any and all other remedies available to us at law or in equity.
Governing Law; Jurisdiction
These Terms are governed by the laws of the State of Ohio and applicable federal laws of the United States of America, without giving effect to conflict of laws principles.
Subject to the below Dispute Resolution provisions and for any disputes not otherwise subject to arbitration, the User irrevocably consents to the exclusive jurisdiction of the federal and state courts situated in or for Columbus, Ohio, USA, for purposes of any legal action arising out of or related to these Terms or use of the Website.
Any civil action, claim, dispute, or proceeding arising out of or relating to these Terms or access to or use of the Website will be resolved exclusively through final and binding arbitration, before a single arbitrator, rather than in court (except as provided in the section “Injunctive Relief”). Except as provided in the section “Injunctive Relief,” the arbitrator – and not any federal, state, or local court or agency – will have exclusive authority to resolve any dispute arising out of these Terms or access to or use of the Website and to arbitrate any part of these Terms, including any claim that all or any part of this section or these Terms is void or voidable.
The arbitration will be conducted by the American Arbitration Association (the “AAA”) exclusively in Columbus, Ohio, USA, under the AAA’s rules and procedures, as modified by this section and conducted in the English language. The AAA’s rules and a form for initiating arbitration proceedings are available at www.adr.org.
You and we will select the arbitrator, and, if you and we are unable to reach agreement on selection of the arbitrator within 30 days after the notice of arbitration is served, then the AAA will select the arbitrator. Arbitration will not commence until the party requesting arbitration has deposited such fees and costs as required by the AAA for arbitration of the type of claim brought by the person requesting arbitration. The party requesting arbitration will advance such sums as are required from time to time by the arbitrator to pay the arbitrator’s fees and costs until the prevailing party is determined or the parties have agreed in writing to an alternate allocation of fees and costs.
Agreement to these Terms constitutes an agreement to pursue your claim on an individual basis and a waiver of the ability to pursue your claim in a class or representative action (or consolidated basis or on bases involving claims brought in a purported representative capacity on behalf the general public). If a dispute is arbitrated, you give up your right to participate as a class representative or class member on any class claim you may have against us, including any right to class arbitration or any consolidation of individual arbitrations.
The arbitrator will decide the substance of all claims exclusively in accordance with the laws of the State of Ohio, including recognized principles of equity, and will honor all claims of privilege recognized by law. The arbitrator will not be bound by rulings in prior arbitrations involving our other Users, but is bound by rulings in prior arbitrations involving the same User to the extent required by applicable law. Judgment upon any award rendered by the arbitrator is final, binding, and conclusive upon you and us and your and our respective administrators, executors, legal representatives, successors and assigns, and may only be entered in the state or federal courts of record in or for Columbus, Ohio, USA.
