Any dispute arising out of or relating to these Terms or the Site that cannot be amicably resolved between us within 60 days from written notice from one party to the other will be finally settled by arbitration. Acceptance of these Terms constitutes a waiver of your right to litigation claims and all opportunity to be heard by a judge or jury, except that we may, at any time, bring an action in a court of competent jurisdiction with respect to any dispute affecting our intellectual property rights whether statutory or contractual.
The arbitration will be conducted in accordance with the commercial arbitration rules (the “Rules”) of the American Arbitration Association. Any such controversy or claim will be arbitrated on an individual basis and will not be consolidated in any arbitration with any claim or controversy of any other party. The arbitration will be conducted in a location of our choosing and judgment on the arbitration award may be entered in any court having jurisdiction thereof. The arbitrator selected under the Rules must be a lawyer. The arbitrator has no authority to award damages in excess of those permitted in these Terms for any reason. Any award in excess of such limitation will be deemed void as between the parties. Either you or us may seek any interim or preliminary equitable relief from a court of competent jurisdiction necessary to protect the rights or the property of you or us (or its affiliates, agents, suppliers, and subcontractors), pending the completion of arbitration.
We may be required by state or federal law to notify you of certain events. You hereby acknowledge and consents that such notices will be effective upon our posting them on the Site or delivering them to you through your registered e-mail address. You may update your e-mail address by visiting your account dashboard. If you have not provided us with accurate information, we cannot be held liable if we fail to notify you.

If any part of these Terms is determined to be invalid or unenforceable pursuant to applicable law, the invalid or unenforceable provision will be construed in accordance with applicable law as nearly as possible to reflect the original intentions of the parties and the intent of the original provision. Where a court is unable to construe any unenforceable or invalid provision to make it binding, the court will sever and delete the provision. In any event, all other terms remaining valid and enforceable will survive and remain in full force and effect.
The relevant sections of these Terms, including but not limited to Service Plans, User Content, Intellectual Property Rights, Indemnification, Warranty and Liability, Limitation of Liability, Arbitration, and this provision shall survive the termination and/or expiration of these Terms.
