PLEASE READ THIS SECTION CAREFULLY – IT MAY SIGNIFICANTLY AFFECT YOUR LEGAL RIGHTS, INCLUDING YOUR RIGHT TO FILE A LAWSUIT IN COURT AND TO HAVE A JURY HEAR YOUR CLAIMS. IT CONTAINS PROCEDURES FOR MANDATORY BINDING ARBITRATION AND A CLASS ACTION WAIVER.
IF YOU ARE A U.S. RESIDENT, YOU ALSO AGREE TO THE FOLLOWING MANDATORY ARBITRATION PROVISIONS:
AGREEMENT TO ARBITRATE: Any disputes arising out of or relating to this Terms of Service Agreement and/or your use of the Website, any Products or Services sold or offered for sale thereon, any posted content, and/or your use of any community and membership areas or other off-site pages and forums hosted and/or operated by Us, shall be submitted to binding arbitration in accordance with the rules of the American Arbitration Association, and each party hereby consents to any such disputes being so resolved. Judgment on the award so rendered in any such arbitration may be entered in any court having jurisdiction thereof.
However, you agree that this arbitration clause does not apply to the extent that the claim or lawsuit is being initiated by Us, based on your violation or threatened violation of Our intellectual property (trademark, copyright, patent or trade secret) rights. In such cases, We may bring a lawsuit for injunctive relief to stop the infringement of its intellectual property rights, as well as for damages and attorney fees, where applicable, without first engaging in arbitration or other informal dispute-resolution process otherwise required by these Terms of Service.
WAIVER OF JURY TRIAL: By electing to resolve all claims and disputes via binding arbitration, THE PARTIES HEREBY WAIVE THEIR CONSTITUTIONAL AND STATUTORY RIGHTS TO APPEAR IN COURT AND HOLD A TRIAL IN FRONT OF A JUDGE OR A JURY. Should any litigation arise between you and Us in any court, state or federal, to vacate or enforce an arbitration award or otherwise, ALL PARTIES HEREBY WAIVE ALL RIGHTS TO A JURY TRIAL, and elect the dispute to be resolved by a judge.
ARBITRATION PROCEEDINGS: Arbitration is a much quicker, often cheaper, and more informal process than a lawsuit. In arbitration proceedings, the case is decided by an arbitrator, instead of a judge or a jury. The arbitrator can award the same damages and relief that a court can, and his decision is final and binding. In the United States, arbitration procedures are governed by the Federal Arbitration Act. It is recommended that you familiarize yourself with that legislation, or consult with an attorney, in order to understand how arbitration procedures work.
OPT-OUT OF ARBITRATION: You have the right to opt out of this arbitration agreement by emailing Us at and providing the following information:
a. Your name;
b. The URL of these Terms of Service;
c. Your address;
d. Your phone number; and
e. A clear statement that you wish to opt out of this arbitration provision in the Terms of Service.
The Opt-Out Notice must be emailed no later than 30 days after the date you first accept the Terms of Service by using the Website.
YOU ACKNOWLEDGE THAT YOU HAVE BEEN ADVISED THAT YOU MAY CONSULT WITH AN ATTORNEY IN DECIDING TO ACCEPT THIS AGREEMENT TO ARBITRATE.
If any provision of this arbitration agreement is found unenforceable, the unenforceable provision shall be severed, and the remaining arbitration terms shall be enforced.

We do not monitor, approve, or update the content posted on these sites, and our inclusion of links thereto in no way implies or constitutes any association between Us and said third party, nor does it constitute any form of guarantee, endorsement, or representation with respect to the completeness or accuracy of the referenced third party content or site.
