With respect to any dispute regarding the Site, all rights and obligations and all actions contemplated by these Terms and Conditions shall be governed by the laws of Texas, as if the Terms and Conditions were a contract wholly entered into and wholly performed within Texas. Any dispute relating in any way to your visit to the Site shall be submitted to confidential arbitration before a single neutral arbitrator in Travis County, Texas, except that, to the extent you have in any manner violated or threatened to violate our intellectual property rights or the intellectual property rights of our affiliates, partners or licensors, we may seek injunctive or other appropriate relief in any court and you consent to exclusive jurisdiction and venue in any such court. Arbitration under this agreement shall be conducted under the rules then prevailing of American Arbitration Association ("AAA"). YOU AND CARTOGRAPH AGREE THAT EACH MAY BRING CLAIMS AGAINST THE OTHER ONLY IN AN INDIVIDUAL CAPACITY AND NOT AS A PLAINTIFF OR CLASS MEMBER IN ANY PURPORTED CLASS OR REPRESENTATIVE PROCEEDING (“CLASS ACTION”). Further, unless both you and Cartograph agree otherwise in a signed writing, 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. YOU UNDERSTAND AND AGREE THAT, BY AGREEING TO THESE TERMS AND CONDITIONS, YOU AND CARTOGRAPH ARE EACH WAIVING THE RIGHT TO A TRIAL BY JURY OR TO PARTICIPATE IN A CLASS ACTION AND THAT THESE TERMS AND CONDITIONS SHALL BE SUBJECT TO AND GOVERNED BY THE FEDERAL ARBITRATION ACT. Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, in the event that any party seeks public injunctive relief, such party may seek relief in a court of competent jurisdiction. If these Class Action restrictions are ever deemed illegal or unenforceable, they shall be severed from this arbitration provision. In that event, any Class Action shall by exempted from this arbitration provision and brought in court of competent jurisdiction, in connection therewith and each of the parties consent to the sole and exclusive jurisdiction of the state and federal courts of the State of Texas, in Austin. The arbitrator's award shall be binding and may be entered as a judgment in any court of competent jurisdiction.
We reserve the right, in our sole discretion, to change these Terms and Conditions at any time by posting the changes on the Site and any changes are effective immediately.
Nothing contained in these Terms and Conditions shall be construed as creating any agency, partnership, or other form of joint enterprise between us. Our failure to require your performance of any provision hereof shall not affect our full right to require such performance at any time thereafter, nor shall our waiver of a breach of any provision hereof be taken or held to be a waiver of the provision itself. In the event that any provision of these Terms and Conditions shall be unenforceable or invalid under any applicable law or be so held by any applicable arbitral award or court decision, such unenforceability or invalidity shall not render these Terms and Conditions unenforceable or invalid as a whole. We will amend or replace such provision with one that is valid and enforceable and which achieves, to the extent possible, our original objectives and intent as reflected in the original provision.
