CHOICE OF LAW; BINDING ARBITRATION; VENUE:

You and Choose It Right agree that any dispute, claim, or controversy arising out of or relating in any way to the Site or Your Use thereof, including these Terms of Use, will be determined by mandatory binding arbitration. You agree that the U.S. Federal Arbitration Act governs the interpretation and enforcement of this provision and that You and Choose It Right are each waiving the right to a trial by jury and the right to participate in a class or multi-party action. This arbitration provision will survive the termination of these Terms of Use. The arbitration will be governed by the Commercial Arbitration Rules and the Supplementary Procedures for Consumer Related Disputes of the American Arbitration Association (the “AAA Rules”), as modified by these Terms of Use, and as administered by the AAA. You and Choose It Right agree that these Terms of Use involve interstate commerce and are subject to the Federal Arbitration Act.

You agree that (a) any claims seeking to enforce, protect, or determine the validity or ownership of any intellectual rights, and (b) any claims related to allegations of theft, piracy, or unauthorized use of the Site are not subject to mandatory arbitration. Instead, You and Choose It Right agree that these claims (including but not limited to claims for injunctive or equitable relief) will be exclusively decided by courts of competent jurisdiction in the state courts in the County of St. Louis, Missouri, USA and the federal courts in St. Louis City, Missouri, USA, and that applicable Missouri and/or Federal law will govern, without regard to choice of law principles.

You and Choose It Right agree that each may bring claims against the other only in Your or Choose It Right’s individual capacity, and not as a class member or in any representative capacity or proceeding. Further, no arbitrator may consolidate any other person’s claims with Your claims, and no arbitrator may otherwise preside over any form of a multi-party or class proceeding. If this specific provision is found to be unenforceable in any way, then this entire section, except for the immediately-preceding paragraph, will be null and void. The arbitrator may not award declaratory or injunctive relief. In such case, all claims must be exclusively decided by courts of competent jurisdiction in the state courts in the County of St. Louis, Missouri, USA and the federal courts in St. Louis City, Missouri, USA, and applicable Missouri and/or Federal law will govern, without regard to choice of law principles.

Any arbitration must be commenced by filing a demand for arbitration with the AAA within one year after the date the party asserting the claim first knows or reasonably should know of the act, omission, or default giving rise to the claim; and there will be no right to any remedy for any claim not asserted within that time period. If applicable law prohibits a one-year limitations period for asserting claims, any claim must be asserted within the shortest time period permitted by applicable law. Your arbitration fees and Your share of arbitrator compensation will be limited to those fees set forth in the AAA’s Consumer Rules with the remainder paid by Choose It Right. Any arbitration costs or fees deemed “excessive” will be paid by Choose It Right.

Choose It Right may modify, suspend, withdraw or discontinue, temporarily or permanently, the Choose It Right Content, Products and Services, in whole or in part, for any reason or no reason, by providing notice on the Site and/or in an email to You at the email address provided by You to Choose It Right, if applicable (the “Notice”).  You agree that Choose It Right shall not be liable to You or to any third party for any modification, suspension, withdrawal or discontinuance of the Choose It Right Content.  Choose It Right may, at any time, revise these Terms of Use upon receipt of Notice to You.  You hereby agree to visit the Site and review the Terms of Use, as revised, to which you are bound.

GENERAL INFORMATION:

These Terms of Use supersede any prior terms of use between You and Choose It Right relating to the Use of this Site and such matters; provided, that You will also be subject to the ChooseItRight.com Privacy Policy and to additional terms and conditions that may apply when You become a Customer, Volume Customer, Subscriber and/or an affiliate of the Site. In the event any provisions of these Terms of Use are held to be invalid by any law, rule, order or regulation of any government or by the final determination of any state or federal court, such invalidity shall not affect the enforceability of any other provision of these Terms of Use. The failure of Choose It Right to exercise or enforce any right or provision of these Terms of Use shall not constitute a waiver of such right or provision. The section titles in these Terms of Use are for convenience only and have no legal or contractual effect.
