VII. Applicable Law; Jurisdiction; Dispute Resolution
This Agreement shall be governed by and construed in accordance with the Federal Arbitration Act, applicable federal laws, and the laws of the State of California in the United States, without regard to its choice of law provisions.
WE EACH AGREE THAT ANY DISPUTE RESOLUTION PROCEEDINGS WILL BE CONDUCTED ONLY ON AN INDIVIDUAL BASIS AND NOT IN A CLASS, CONSOLIDATED OR REPRESENTATIVE ACTION. We each agree that any arbitrator hearing a claim may not: (i) combine more than one individual’s claim or claims into a single case; (ii) order, require, participate in or facilitate production of class-wide contact information or notification of others of potential claims; or (iii) arbitrate any form of a class, collective, or representative proceeding. If for any reason a claim proceeds in court rather than in arbitration WE EACH WAIVE ANY RIGHT TO A JURY TRIAL. We also both agree that you or we may bring suit in court to enjoin infringement or other misuse of intellectual property rights.
VIII. Severability; Interpretation
If any provision of this Agreement is deemed illegal or unenforceable, the remainder of this Agreement shall continue to be fully valid, binding, and enforceable. When used in this Agreement, the term “including” shall be deemed to be followed by the words “without limitation.”
IX. Entire Agreement
This Agreement constitutes the entire and only Agreement between Gear Guru® and each user of this Site with respect to the subject matter of this Agreement and supersedes any and all prior or contemporaneous Agreements, representations, warranties and understandings, written or oral, with respect to the subject matter of this Agreement.
The failure of Gear Guru® Parties to insist upon strict adherence to any term of this Agreement shall not constitute a waiver of such term and shall not be considered a waiver or limit that party’s right thereafter to insist upon strict adherence to that term or any other term of this Agreement.
XI. Contact Information
