INJUNCTIVE RELIEF.

LAWS. This Agreement shall be governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of the state of Delaware, where TopQuadrant, Inc. is incorporated.
DISPUTE RESOLUTION. You and TopQuadrant each agree to use best efforts to amicably resolve any dispute relating to this Agreement. Any dispute that cannot be resolved that way will be settled by final binding arbitration by a single arbitrator in accordance with the rules of the American Arbitration Association, and judgment on the award rendered by the arbitrator may be entered in any court having jurisdiction. Any arbitration will be held in Raleigh N.C., or some other place that we all agree to. Each party will bear its own costs and expenses and an equal share of the arbitrator’s expenses and the administrative fees of arbitration.
YOU AND TOPQUADRANT AGREE THAT EACH MAY BRING CLAIMS AGAINST THE OTHER ONLY IN YOUR OR ITS INDIVIDUAL CAPACITY AND NOT AS A PLAINTIFF OR CLASS MEMBER IN ANY PURPORTED CLASS OR REPRESENTATIVE PROCEEDING. YOU AGREE THAT, BY ENTERING INTO THIS AGREEMENT, YOU AND TOPQUADRANT ARE EACH WAIVING THE RIGHT TO A TRIAL BY JURY OR TO PARTICIPATE IN A CLASS ACTION.
Further, unless both you and TopQuadrant agree otherwise, the arbitrator may not consolidate more than one person's claims, and may not otherwise preside over any form of a representative or class proceeding. If this specificprovision is found to be unenforceable, then the entirety of this arbitration provision shall be null and void. This Agreement evidences a transaction in interstate commerce, and thus the Federal Arbitration Act governs the interpretation and enforcement of this provision. This arbitration provision shall survive termination of this Agreement.
GENERAL INFORMATION. If any provision(s) of this Agreement are held to be contrary to law, then such provision(s) shall be construed, as nearly as possible, to reflect the intentions of the parties with the other provisions remaining in full force and effect. TopQuadrant's failure to exercise or enforce any right or provision of this Agreement shall not constitute a waiver of such right or provision unless acknowledged and agreed to by TopQuadrant in writing. You and TopQuadrant agree that any cause of action arising out of or related to the Service must commence within one (1) year after the cause of action arose; otherwise, such cause of action is permanently barred. The section titles in this Agreement are solely used for the convenience of the parties and have no legal or contractual significance.
