XVI. General Provisions
- Governing Law
These Terms and Conditions and all matters arising out of or otherwise relating to these Terms and Conditions shall be governed by the laws of the State of Illinois, excluding its conflict of law provisions; and the parties hereby submit to the personal jurisdiction of the state and federal courts of the State of that state, which is exclusive venue for any litigation or arbitration permitted under this Agreement. Moreover, you agree that any dispute arising from your use of the Web Site(s) will be resolved exclusively by arbitration in Cook County, Illinois; any arbitration award may be enforced in any court having jurisdiction over the party against whom the award is made. You further agree that the United Nations Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods is specifically excluded from application to these Terms and Conditions.
- Rights to Injunctive Relief
Both parties acknowledge that remedies at law may be inadequate to provide an aggrieved party with full compensation in the event of the other party’s breach, and that an aggrieved party shall therefore be entitled to seek injunctive relief in the event of any such breach, in addition to seeking all other remedies available at law or in equity.
- Binding Arbitration
If there is a dispute between the parties arising out of or otherwise relating to these Terms and Conditions, the parties shall meet and negotiate in good faith to attempt to resolve the dispute. Arbitral Claims shall include, but are not limited to, contract and tort claims of all kinds, and all claims based on any federal, state or local law, statute, or regulation, excepting only claims under applicable worker’s compensation law and unemployment insurance claims. If the parties are unable to resolve the dispute through direct negotiations, then, except as otherwise provided herein, either party may submit the issue to binding arbitration in accordance with the then-existing Commercial Arbitration Rules of the American Arbitration Association. The arbitration shall be conducted in Cook, Illinois, and conducted by a single arbitrator, knowledgeable in Internet and e-Commerce. The party bringing the action shall be responsible for paying all costs for arbitration, including the arbitrator’s fees. Each party shall bear its own attorneys’ fees (except if the matter is for the collection of a debt owed in which case the prevailing party shall be awarded its attorneys fees, all arbitration costs and the arbitrator fees (if applicable), in addition to all other applicable remedies). The arbitrator shall have no authority to award any punitive or exemplary damages; certify a class action; add any parties; vary or ignore the provisions of these Terms and Conditions; and shall be bound by governing and applicable law. The arbitrator shall render a written opinion setting forth all material facts and the basis of his or her decision within thirty (30) days of the conclusion of the arbitration proceeding. This Section shall not apply to any breach (or any allegation which if true would constitute a breach) of any matter relating to intellectual property. THE PARTIES HEREBY WAIVE ANY RIGHTS THEY MAY HAVE TO TRIAL BY JURY IN REGARD TO ARBITRAL CLAIMS.
Either party may seek interim injunctive relief prior to arbitration if it is warranted. However, permanent injunctive relief is the exclusive decision of the arbitrator.
The rights and liabilities of the parties hereto will bind and inure to the benefit of their respective assignees, successors, executors, and administrators, as the case may be. Neither these Terms and Conditions nor any rights granted hereunder may be sold, leased, assigned or otherwise transferred, in whole or in part by you.
If for any reason a court of competent jurisdiction or an arbitrator finds any provision of these Terms and Conditions, or any portion thereof, to be unenforceable, that provision will be enforced to the maximum extent permissible and the remainder of these Terms and Conditions will continue in full force and effect.
- No Waiver
No waiver of The Web Site Operator shall be deemed a waiver of any subsequent default of the same provision of these Terms and Conditions. If any term, clause or provision hereof is held invalid or unenforceable by a court of competent jurisdiction, such invalidity shall not affect the validity or operation of any other term, clause or provision and such invalid term, clause or provision shall be deemed to be severed from these Terms and Conditions.
All headings are solely for the convenience of reference and shall not affect the meaning, construction or effect of these Terms and Conditions.
- Complete Agreement
These Terms and Conditions constitute the entire agreement between the parties with respect to your access and use of any of the Site and the Materials contained therein, and your membership with any of the Site, and supersedes and replaces all prior or contemporaneous understandings or agreements, written or oral, regarding such subject matter (except, to the extent applicable, any Download Agreement or similar contract governing the parties’ rights and responsibilities in connection with any specific Materials downloadable from a Site). No amendment to or modification of these Terms and Conditions will be binding unless in writing and signed by a duly authorized representative of both parties.
The Web Site Operator reserves the right to change any of the provisions posted herein and you agree to review these Terms and Conditions each time you visit a Site. Your continued use of a Site following The Web Site Operator’ posting of any changes to these Terms and Conditions constitutes your acceptance to such changes. The Web Site Operator does not and will not assume any obligation to provide you with notice of any change to these Terms and Conditions. Unless accepted by The Web Site Operator in writing, these Terms and Conditions may not be amended by you.
- Government Rights
The software elements of the Materials have been developed at private expense and are “commercial computer software” or “restricted computer software” within the meaning of the FARs, the DFARs, and any other similar regulations relating to government acquisition of computer software. Nothing contained herein will be deemed to: (1) grant any government agency any license or other rights greater than are mandated by statute or regulation for commercial computer software developed entirely at private expense, or (2) restrict any government rights in any extensions or custom solutions provided hereunder and developed at government expense.
- Other Jurisdictions
The Web Site Operator makes no representation that the Site or any of the Materials contained therein are appropriate or available for use in other locations, and access to them from territories where their content may be illegal or is otherwise prohibited.
