YOU EXPRESSLY AGREE THAT USE OF THE SERVICES IS AT YOUR SOLE RISK. UNDER NO CIRCUMSTANCES SHALL WE, OUR AFFILIATES, DIRECTORS, OFFICERS, EMPLOYEES OR AGENTS BE LIABLE FOR ANY DIRECT, INDIRECT, INCIDENTAL, SPECIAL, CONSEQUENTIAL, OR PUNITIVE DAMAGES THAT RESULT FROM THE USE OF OR INABILITY TO USE THE SERVICES, INCLUDING BUT NOT LIMITED TO RELIANCE BY YOU ON ANY INFORMATION OBTAINED AT THE SITE OR SERVICES, OR THAT RESULT FROM MISTAKES, OMISSIONS, INTERRUPTIONS, DELETION OF FILES OR EMAIL, ERRORS, DEFECTS, VIRUSES, INCLUDING, WITHOUT LIMITATION, COMPUTER “VIRUSES”, “WORMS”, “BUGS”, DELAYS IN OPERATION OR TRANSMISSION, OR ANY FAILURE OF PERFORMANCE, WHETHER OR NOT RESULTING FROM ACTS OF GOD, COMMUNICATIONS FAILURE, THEFT, DESTRUCTION OR UNAUTHORIZED ACCESS TO OUR RECORDS, PROGRAMS OR SERVICES.

14. Release

We provide a service and would be unable to function if we were held responsible for the actions or inactions of our subscribers or other users of the Services we provide.

15. Binding Arbitration and Choice of Law

You and ERMProtect agree that any dispute, claim, or controversy arising out of or related to this Agreement, or our Privacy Policy, Site, or Services shall be settled by final and binding arbitration in accordance with the rules of the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”), rather than in a court of law. You agree that you are knowingly and voluntarily giving up your right to a trial and have your dispute heard by a judge or jury in a court of law. Any such dispute, claim, or controversy shall be arbitrated on an individual basis and shall not be joined or consolidated with a claim of any other party or class. You agree that the arbitrator’s decision shall be controlled by this Agreement and any other agreement that you have with us. You agree that the arbitrator’s award shall be final and binding and may be entered as a judgment in any court of competent jurisdiction. The arbitration will be administered by the AAA, pursuant to the rules of the AAA. For more information on the rules, procedures, and fees of the AAA, please visit their website at www.adr.org. The foregoing shall not preclude you or ERMProtect from seeking any injunctive or other equitable relief in State or Federal court for protection of intellectual property rights.

This Agreement, including binding arbitration, will be governed by the law of the State of Florida, without regard to the conflict of laws principles thereof.

If any dispute, controversy, or claims cannot be resolved in arbitration between the parties, then it shall be submitted for resolution to a court of competent jurisdiction in Miami-Dade County, Florida, and the Federal Courts in and for the Southern District of Florida, and the parties hereby submit that exclusive venue shall lie with such courts, and the parties hereby irrevocably submit to the jurisdiction and venue of such courts.
