PLEASE READ THE FOLLOWING PARAGRAPH CAREFULLY BECAUSE IT REQUIRES YOU TO ARBITRATE DISPUTES WITH SOJERN AND IT LIMITS THE MANNER IN WHICH YOU CAN SEEK RELIEF.
This Agreement shall be governed by, construed and enforced in accordance with the laws of the State of Nebraska, USA, as they are applied to agreements that are entered into and performed entirely within the State of Nebraska.
You and Sojern agree to arbitrate any dispute arising from this Agreement or relating to the Site or Services, except that you and Sojern are not required to arbitrate any dispute in which either party seeks equitable or other relief for the alleged unlawful use of copyrights, trademarks, trade names, logos, trade secrets or patents. ARBITRATION PREVENTS YOU FROM SUING IN COURT AND FROM HAVING A JURY TRIAL.
You and Sojern agree that you will notify each other of any dispute within thirty (30) days of when it arises, that you will attempt informal resolution prior to any demand for arbitration, that any arbitration will occur in Omaha, Nebraska, and that arbitration will be conducted confidentially by a single arbitrator in accordance with the Rules of the American Arbitration Association. You and Sojern also agree that the state or federal courts located in Omaha, Nebraska have sole and exclusive jurisdiction over any appeals of an arbitration award and over any suit between the parties not subject to arbitration and you expressly consent to the exclusive and personal jurisdiction of said courts over yourself and any such matters. Other than class procedures and remedies discussed in the next sentence, the arbitrator has the authority to grant any remedy that would otherwise be available in court. Whether the dispute is heard in arbitration or in court, neither you nor Sojern will commence against the other a class action, class arbitration or other representative action or proceeding and both parties expressly waive any right to bring or maintain such an action.
This Agreement, and any rights and licenses granted hereunder, may not be transferred or assigned by you, but may be assigned or transferred by Sojern without restriction.
