GENERAL

Governing Law

These Terms and all matters arising from them are governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of the State of Texas, exclusive of its choice of law rules, whose courts shall have exclusive jurisdiction over all disputes arising in connection with the Terms.
 

Dispute Resolution

You agree to resolve any disputes through binding arbitration. All disputes or claims that arise under or relate to these Terms (whether in contract, tort or otherwise, whether past, pre-existing, or future, and including statutory, consumer protection, common law, intentional tort, injunctive, and equitable claims) will be resolved by individual arbitration in accordance with the rules of the American Arbitration Association ("AAA"). Unless you and us agree otherwise, any arbitration hearings will take place in the county (or parish) of your or your organization's address.

You further agree to arbitration on an individual basis. In any dispute, NEITHER YOU NOR ARMANO SHALL BE ENTITLED TO JOIN OR CONSOLIDATE CLAIMS BY OR AGAINST OTHER PARTIES OR ARBITRATE OR OTHERWISE PARTICIPATE IN ANY CLAIM AS A CLASS REPRESENTATIVE, CLASS MEMBER, OR IN A PRIVATE ATTORNEY GENERAL CAPACITY. If any provision of this provision is found unenforceable, the unenforceable provision shall be severed, and the remaining arbitration terms shall be enforced (but in no case shall there be a class arbitration).

The arbitrator shall be empowered to grant whatever relief would be available in court under law or in equity. Any award of the arbitrator shall be final and binding on each of the parties, and may be entered as a judgment in any court of competent jurisdiction. This transaction and the arbitration shall be governed by the Federal Arbitration Act.
 

No Waivers

No waiver by us of any term or condition set forth in these Terms shall be deemed a further or continuing waiver of such term or condition, and any failure by us to assert a right or provision under these Terms shall not constitute a waiver of such right or provision. 
 

Assignment

You will not assign any of your rights or delegate any of your obligations under these Terms without our prior written consent. Any purported assignment or delegation in violation of this prohibition on assignment is null and void. No assignment or delegation relieves you of any of your obligations under these Terms.

Reformation and Interpretation

If any part of these Terms is determined to be invalid or unenforceable pursuant to applicable law, then the invalid or unenforceable provision will be deemed superseded by a valid, enforceable provision that most closely matches the intent of the original provision, and the remainder of the Terms shall continue in effect.
 

Limitations on Exclusions Not Applicable

Some states do not allow exclusion of implied warranties or limitation of liability for incidental or consequential damages, so the above limitations or exclusions may not apply to you.
