Governing Law: The laws of the State of Texas shall govern these Terms and Conditions and, subject to the arbitration section below. YOU HEREBY EXPRESSLY CONSENT TO EXCLUSIVE JURISDICTION AND VENUE IN THE COURTS LOCATED IN DALLAS, TEXAS FOR ALL MATTERS ARISING IN CONNECTION WITH THESE TERMS AND CONDITIONS OR YOUR ACCESS OR USE OF THE LEGALBEVY SERVICE. Any claims asserted by you in connection with the LEGALBEVY Service must be asserted in writing to LEGALBEVY within one (1) year of the date such claim first arose, or such claim is forever waived by you. Notwithstanding the arbitration section below, LEGALBEVY may seek an injunction in a court of competent jurisdiction to the extent necessary to prevent any harm to any party or liability to LEGALBEVY.
Arbitration: You hereby submit to the exclusive jurisdiction of the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”) in connection with any dispute relating to, concerning, or arising out of these Terms and Conditions or the LEGALBEVY Service. The arbitration will be conducted before a single arbitrator and will be held at the AAA location in Dallas, Texas. Payment of all filing, administration, and arbitrator fees will be governed by the AAA’s rules, unless otherwise stated in this paragraph. In the event you are able to demonstrate that the costs of arbitration will be prohibitive as compared to the costs of litigation, LEGALBEVY will pay as much of your filing, administrative, and arbitrator fees in connection with the arbitration as the arbitrator deems necessary to prevent the arbitration from being cost-prohibitive. The arbitration before the AAA shall proceed solely on an individual basis without the right for any claims to be arbitrated on a class action basis or on bases involving claims brought in a purported representative capacity on behalf of others. The arbitrator’s authority to resolve and make written awards is limited to claims between you and us alone. Claims may not be joined or consolidated unless agreed to in writing by all parties. No arbitration award or decision will have any preclusive effect as to issues or claims in any dispute with anyone who is not a named party to the arbitration. If you initiate litigation or any other proceeding against LEGALBEVY in violation of this paragraph, you agree to pay LEGALBEVY’s reasonable costs and attorneys’ fees incurred in connection with its enforcement of this paragraph.
Severability: If any part of these Terms and Conditions shall be held or declared to be invalid or unenforceable for any reason by any court of competent jurisdiction, such provision shall be ineffective but shall not affect any other part of these Terms and Conditions.
Waiver and Remedies: The failure by us to partially or fully exercise any rights or the waiver of any breach of these Terms and Conditions by you, shall not prevent a subsequent exercise of such right by us or be deemed a waiver by us of any subsequent breach by you of the same or any other term of these Terms and Conditions. Our rights and remedies under these Terms and Conditions shall be cumulative, and the exercise of any such right or remedy shall not limit our right to exercise any other right or remedy.
Export: You may not use or otherwise export or re-export any product that may be obtained using the LEGALBEVY Service except as authorized by United States law and the laws of the jurisdiction in which the product was obtained. In particular, but without limitation, the product obtained using the LEGALBEVY Service may not be exported or re-exported (a) into any U.S. embargoed countries or (b) to anyone on the U.S. Treasury Department’s list of Specially Designated Nationals or the U.S. Department of Commerce Denied Person’s List or Entity List.
