Governing Law

All matters relating to or arising out of this Agreement shall be governed by and construed, and interpreted under the laws of the state of Missouri, United States of America, without regard to conflicts of laws principles that would require the application of any other law.

Binding Arbitration

If either party asserts that there is a dispute arising out of or relating to this Agreement, such party shall first notify the other party in writing, specifying the nature of the dispute and scheduling a meeting to attempt to resolve the dispute.  

If no resolution is reached within thirty (30) calendar days of the delivery of the written notice, either party may then elect to exclusively and finally resolve the dispute by binding arbitration by filing a written notice of arbitration under this section under the subheading “Binding Arbitration” and the Rules of Conciliation and Arbitration of the International Chamber of Commerce applicable at the time of submission of the dispute to arbitration (the “ICC Rules”).  

Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in the ICC Rules, the following terms and conditions shall apply.

The arbitration shall be conducted by a panel of three (3) arbitrators. Each party shall have the right to appoint one (1) arbitrator within fifteen (15) days following the delivery of the written notice of arbitration, and a third arbitrator shall be selected by those two (2) party-appointed arbitrators within thirty (30) days of the appointment of the two (2) party-appointed arbitrators.

The arbitration proceedings shall be held in Kansas City, Missouri, United States of America in the English language.

The parties shall equally bear the costs and fees of the arbitration, and each party shall bear its own cost for its own legal expenses. The arbitrators shall apply the substantive law set forth in the section of this Agreement under the subheading “Governing Law”. Any arbitration proceeding shall be conducted on a confidential basis.

The arbitrators shall specify the reason and basis for their decision, the reason for any damages awarded and the breakdown for such damages awarded, and the basis for any other remedy authorized under this Agreement, including but not limited to injunctive relief or specific performance. For the avoidance of doubt, nothing in this Agreement shall prevent us from seeking injunctive or other equitable relief.

The arbitrators’ decision shall be considered as a final, and binding resolution of the dispute shall be final and binding on the parties. It shall not be subject to appeal or reexamination. The arbitrators’ award may be entered as a judgment and enforced by any court of competent jurisdiction.

TO THE EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW, YOU AGREE TO WAIVE YOUR RIGHT TO TRIAL BY JURY IN ANY PROCEEDINGS, ACTION, OR COUNTERCLAIM.  

Injunctive or Other Equitable Relief

We may seek injunctive or other equitable relief that is necessary to protect our rights and intellectual property. All actions or proceedings related to this Agreement that are not subject to binding arbitration will be brought solely in the state or federal courts of the State of Missouri, United States of America. You hereby unconditionally and irrevocably consent to those courts’ personal and subject matter jurisdiction for purposes of any such action.

Class Action Waiver

You agree that any dispute arising out of or relating to this Agreement shall be solely between you and the Company.  

YOU AGREE TO WAIVE THE RIGHT TO LITIGATE IN COURT OR ARBITRATE ANY CLAIM OR DISPUTE AS A CLASS ACTION. YOU AGREE THAT YOU WILL ONLY MAKE CLAIMS AGAINST US IN YOUR INDIVIDUAL CAPACITY, AND CANNOT MAKE CLAIMS AGAINST US AS A MEMBER OF A CLASS OR AS A REPRESENTATIVE.

This Agreement, the Privacy Policy, and Disclaimer contain the entire agreement between you and the Company with respect to the subject matter hereof and thereof and supersede all prior agreements and undertakings, both written and oral, with respect thereto.

Miscellaneous

Subheadings in this Agreement are used for convenience of reference only and in no way define, describe, limit or extend the scope of this Agreement or the intent of any of its provisions. They shall not be considered in construing or interpreting this Agreement.

The terms and conditions of this Agreement shall inure to the benefit of and be binding upon the successors, heirs, executors, administrators, legal representatives, and assigns of the Company. Nothing in this Agreement, express or implied, is intended to confer upon any party other than the Company or our successors, heirs, executors, administrators, legal representatives and assigns any rights, remedies, obligations, or liabilities under this Agreement.
