YOU UNDERSTAND THAT TO THE EXTENT PERMITTED UNDER APPLICABLE LAW, IN NO EVENT WILL WE OR OUR OFFICERS, EMPLOYEES, DIRECTORS, PARENTS, SUBSIDIARIES, AFFILIATES, AGENTS, OR LICENSORS BE LIABLE FOR ANY INDIRECT, INCIDENTAL, SPECIAL, CONSEQUENTIAL OR EXEMPLARY DAMAGES, INCLUDING BUT NOT LIMITED TO, DAMAGES FOR LOSS OF REVENUES, PROFITS, GOODWILL, USE, DATA, LOST OPPORTUNITIES, OR BUSINESS INTERRUPTIONS OR OTHER INTANGIBLE LOSSES (EVEN IF SUCH PARTIES WERE ADVISED OF, KNEW OF OR SHOULD HAVE KNOWN OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES, AND NOTWITHSTANDING THE FAILURE OF ESSENTIAL PURPOSE OF ANY LIMITED REMEDY), ARISING OUT OF OR RELATED TO YOUR USE OF OR ACCESS TO, OR THE INABILITY TO USE OR TO ACCESS, THE WEBSITE, PRODUCTS OR SERVICES, REGARDLESS OF WHETHER SUCH DAMAGES ARE BASED ON CONTRACT, TORT (INCLUDING NEGLIGENCE AND STRICT LIABILITY), WARRANTY, STATUTE OR OTHERWISE.

16. Governing Law

These Terms of Use shall be governed by and interpreted in accordance with the laws of the State of Illinois, without respect to its choice of law provisions.

17. Arbitration Agreement and Jury Trial Waiver, Class Action Waiver, and Forum Selection Clause

READ THIS SECTION CAREFULLY, IT AFFECTS RIGHTS THAT YOU MAY OTHERWISE HAVE. IT PROVIDES FOR RESOLUTION OF MOST DISPUTES THROUGH ARBITRATION INSTEAD OF COURT TRIALS AND CLASS ACTIONS. ARBITRATION IS MORE INFORMAL THAN A LAWSUIT IN COURT, USES A NEUTRAL ARBITRATOR INSTEAD OF A JUDGE OR JURY, AND DISCOVERY IS MORE LIMITED. ARBITRATION IS FINAL AND BINDING AND SUBJECT TO ONLY VERY LIMITED REVIEW BY A COURT.

Binding Arbitration. This provision shall be interpreted broadly to encompass any and all demands, disputes or claims, however styled, arising out of or relating to these Terms of Use, your use of the Websites, or your purchase, receipt or use of any Products. Any demand, dispute or claim arising out of or relating to these Terms of Use, your use of the Websites, or your purchase, receipt or use of any Products (whether based in contract, tort, statute, fraud, misrepresentation or any other legal theory) shall be resolved by binding mandatory arbitration. There shall be one arbitrator and the arbitrator shall have the exclusive power and jurisdiction to rule on his or her own jurisdiction, including but not limited to any objections with respect to the existence, scope or validity of this arbitration agreement or the arbitrability of any disputes, claims or controversies.

The arbitration of any dispute or claim shall be conducted in accordance with the rules of the American Arbitration Association ("AAA"), including the AAA's Consumer Arbitration Rules (as applicable), as modified by these Terms of Use. The AAA Rules and information about arbitration and fees are available online at www.adr.org or by calling the AAA at 1-800-778-7879. You and we agree that these Terms of Use evidence a transaction in interstate commerce and this arbitration provision will be interpreted and enforced in accordance with the U.S. Federal Arbitration Act and federal arbitration law, and not governed by state law. Any arbitration shall be confidential, and neither you nor we may disclose the existence, content or results of any arbitration, except as may be required by law or for purposes of enforcement of the arbitration award. Judgment on any arbitration award may be entered in any court having proper jurisdiction.

Exceptions. Notwithstanding the “Binding Arbitration” paragraphs above, you and us agree that nothing herein will be deemed to waive, preclude or otherwise limit either of our rights, at any time, to (1) bring an individual action in small claims court provided the claims asserted qualify as a small claim(s) by such a court, (2) pursue enforcement actions through applicable federal, state or local agencies where such actions are available, or (3) to file suit in a court of law to address any alleged violations of the Computer Fraud and Abuse Act or claims of intellectual property infringement or misappropriation. If pursued under this paragraph, any such claims shall be exclusively brought (unless such courts do not have personal jurisdiction in the dispute) in the state or federal courts located in Chicago, Illinois.

Pre-Arbitration Procedures. Before you or TTB commences an arbitration, the party who intends to commence arbitration must first send a written description of the claim or dispute and the relief sought to the other party to allow us both an opportunity to resolve the matter. We will send notice to the email you used to create your Account. You will send notice to TTB by sending an email to the following email address: legal@thetiebar.com. You and we each agree to negotiate your claim in good faith. Either party may request arbitration if the claim or dispute cannot be resolved within 60 days.

Location and Costs of Arbitration. Unless you and us agree otherwise, any arbitration hearings will take place in the county (or parish) of your residence. If your claim is for US $10,000 or less, we agree that you may choose whether the arbitration will be conducted solely on the basis of the documents submitted to the arbitrator, through a telephonic hearing, or by an in-person hearing as established in the AAA Rules. If your claim exceeds US $10,000, the right to a hearing and the hearing process will be determined by the AAA Rules. Regardless of the manner in which the arbitration will be conducted, the arbitrator shall issue a reasoned written decision explaining the essential findings and conclusions on which the award is based. If the arbitrator issues you an award that is greater than the value of our last settlement offer, if any, made before an arbitrator was selected (or if we did not make a settlement offer before an arbitrator was selected), then we will pay you the amount of the award or US $5,000, whichever is greater. Except as expressly set forth herein, the payment of all filing, administration and arbitrator fees will be governed by the AAA Rules.

Class Action Waiver and Jury Waiver. You and we each agree that any proceeding, whether in arbitration or in court, will be conducted only on an individual basis and not in a class, consolidated or representative action. If a court or arbitrator determines in an action between you and us that this class action waiver is unenforceable, the arbitration agreement will be void as to you. Neither you, nor any other User, can be a class representative, class member, or otherwise participate in a class, consolidated or representative proceeding. If for any reason a claim proceeds in court rather than through arbitration, you and we each waive any right to a jury trial.

18. General Terms

These Terms of Use are personal to you, and you may not transfer, assign or delegate your right and/or duties under these Terms of Use to anyone else and any attempted assignment or delegation is void. You acknowledge that we have the right hereunder to seek an injunction, if necessary, to stop or prevent a breach of your obligations hereunder. The paragraph headings in these Terms of Use, shown in boldface type, are included only to help make these Terms of Use easier to read and have no binding effect. Any delay or failure by us to exercise or enforce any right or provision of these Terms of Use will not constitute a waiver of such right or provision. No waiver by us will have effect unless such waiver is set forth in writing, signed by us; nor will any such waiver of any breach or default constitute a waiver of any subsequent breach or default. These Terms of Use constitute the complete and exclusive agreement between you and us with respect to the subject matter hereof, and supersedes all prior oral or written understandings, communications or agreements. If for any reason a court of competent jurisdiction finds any provision of these Terms of Use, or portion thereof, to be unenforceable, that provision of the Terms of Use will be enforced to the maximum extent permissible so as to effect the intent of the parties, and the remainder of these Terms of Use will continue in full force and effect.
