Governing Law: This Agreement and all matters arising out of or otherwise relating to this Agreement, shall be governed by the laws of the State of Florida, excluding its conflict of law provisions. The parties agree that the United Nations Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods is specifically excluded from application to this Agreement. The parties hereby submit to the personal jurisdiction of the state and federal courts of the State of Florida. Exclusive venue for any litigation permitted under this Agreement shall be with the state and federal courts located in Seminole County, Florida.
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 of Section 2, 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.
Arbitration: If there is a dispute between the parties arising out of or relating to this Agreement, the parties shall meet and negotiate in good faith to attempt to resolve the dispute. 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 Seminole County Florida, and conducted by a single arbitrator, knowledgeable in software, the Internet and e-Commerce. The party bringing the action shall be responsible for paying all costs for arbitration, including the arbitrator’s fees, unless attorneys fees may be awarded to the prevailing party as a matter of substantive law. The arbitrator shall have no authority to award any punitive or exemplary damages, certify a class action, add any parties, or to vary or ignore the terms of this Agreement and shall be bound by governing and applicable law. This Section shall not apply to any breach (or any allegation which if true would constitute a breach) of Section 2.
Assignment: 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 this Agreement nor any rights granted hereunder may be sold, leased, assigned or otherwise transferred, in whole or in part by you.
Severability: If for any reason a court of competent jurisdiction or arbitrator finds any provision of this Agreement, or any portion thereof, to be unenforceable, that provision will be enforced to the maximum extent permissible and the remainder of this Agreement will continue in full force and effect.
No Waiver: Failure by either party to enforce any provision of this Agreement will not be deemed a waiver of future enforcement of that or any other provision, and no waiver of one breach will constitute a waiver of subsequent breaches of the same or of a different nature.
Complete Agreement: This Agreement constitutes the entire agreement between the parties with respect to the subject matter hereof, and supersedes and replaces all prior or contemporaneous understandings or agreements, written or oral, regarding such subject matter. No amendment to or modification of this Agreement will be binding unless in writing and signed by a duly authorized representative of both parties.
Relationship Between the Parties: Content Provider is an independent contractor; nothing in this Agreement shall be construed to create a partnership, joint venture or agency relationship between the parties.
