GOVERNING LAW, ARBITRATION, AND CLASS ACTION/JURY WAIVER
1. Governing Law. You agree that:

(ii) the Services shall be deemed a passive one that does not give rise to personal jurisdiction over us, either specific or general, in jurisdictions other than Florida. This Agreement shall be governed by the internal substantive laws of the State of Florida, without respect to its conflict of laws principles. The parties acknowledge that this Agreement evidences a transaction involving interstate commerce. Notwithstanding the preceding sentences with respect to the substantive law, any arbitration conducted pursuant to the terms of this Agreement shall be governed by the Federal Arbitration Act (9 U.S.C. §§ 1-16). The application of the United Nations Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods is expressly excluded. You agree to submit to the personal jurisdiction of the federal and state courts located in Florid for any actions for which we retain the right to seek injunctive or other equitable relief in a court of competent jurisdiction to prevent the actual or threatened infringement, misappropriation or violation of a our copyrights, trademarks, trade secrets, patents, or other intellectual property or proprietary rights, as set forth in the Arbitration provision below, including any provisional relief required to prevent irreparable harm. You agree that Florida is the proper forum for any appeals of an arbitration award or for trial court proceedings in the event that the arbitration provision below is found to be unenforceable.
2. Arbitration. READ THIS SECTION CAREFULLY BECAUSE IT REQUIRES THE PARTIES TO ARBITRATE THEIR DISPUTES AND LIMITS THE MANNER IN WHICH YOU CAN SEEK RELIEF FROM Friends-Zone. For any dispute with Friends-Zone, you agree to first contact us and attempt to resolve the dispute with us informally. In the unlikely event that Friends-Zone has not been able to resolve a dispute it has with you after sixty (60) days, we each agree to resolve any claim, dispute, or controversy (excluding any claims for injunctive or other equitable relief as provided below) arising out of or in connection with or relating to this Agreement, or the breach or alleged breach thereof (collectively, “Claims”), by binding arbitration. The arbitration will be conducted in state of Florida, unless you and Friends-Zone agree otherwise. Each party will be responsible for paying any arbitration filing, administrative and arbitrator fees in accordance with arbitration rules, and the award rendered by the arbitrator shall include costs of arbitration, reasonable attorneys’ fees and reasonable costs for expert and other witnesses. Any judgment on the award rendered by the arbitrator may be entered in any court of competent jurisdiction. Nothing in this Section shall be deemed as preventing Friends-Zone from seeking injunctive or other equitable relief from the courts as necessary to prevent the actual or threatened infringement, misappropriation, or violation of our data security, Intellectual Property Rights or other proprietary rights.
3. Class Action/Jury Trial Waiver. WITH RESPECT TO ALL PERSONS AND ENTITIES, REGARDLESS OF WHETHER THEY HAVE OBTAINED OR USED THE SERVICES FOR PERSONAL, COMMERCIAL OR OTHER PURPOSES, ALL CLAIMS MUST BE BROUGHT IN THE PARTIES’ INDIVIDUAL CAPACITY, AND NOT AS A PLAINTIFF OR CLASS MEMBER IN ANY PURPORTED CLASS ACTION, COLLECTIVE ACTION, PRIVATE ATTORNEY GENERAL ACTION OR OTHER REPRESENTATIVE PROCEEDING. THIS WAIVER APPLIES TO CLASS ARBITRATION, AND, UNLESS WE AGREE OTHERWISE, THE ARBITRATOR MAY NOT CONSOLIDATE MORE THAN ONE PERSON’S CLAIMS. YOU AGREE THAT, BY ENTERING INTO THIS AGREEMENT, YOU AND Friends-Zone ARE EACH WAIVING THE RIGHT TO A TRIAL BY JURY OR TO PARTICIPATE IN A CLASS ACTION, COLLECTIVE ACTION, PRIVATE ATTORNEY GENERAL ACTION, OR OTHER REPRESENTATIVE PROCEEDING OF ANY KIND.
1. Entire Agreement; Amendment. This Agreement, including all documents referenced herein, constitutes the entire agreement between you and Friends-Zone and governs your use of the Service. If, through accessing or using the Service, you utilize or obtain any product or service from a third party, you may additionally be subject to such third party’s terms and conditions applicable thereto, and this Agreement will not affect your legal relationship with such third party.
2. Severability. If any term or provision of this Agreement is determined to be illegal, unenforceable, or invalid in whole or in part for any reason, such term or provision will be changed and interpreted to accomplish the objectives of such provision to the greatest extent possible under applicable law and the remaining provisions will continue in full force and effect.
3. Assignment. Neither party may assign this Agreement or any of its rights or obligations hereunder, to a third party without the other party’s written consent, except that a party may assign this Agreement without such consent as a consequence of a merger, consolidation, reorganization, or sale of substantially all of its assets or of the business to which this Agreement pertains. Any assignment in violation of the foregoing is null and void. This Agreement inures to the benefit of and is binding upon the parties hereto and their successors and assigns.
4. Waiver. Failure to enforce or a waiver by either party of one default or breach of the other party will not be considered to be a waiver of any subsequent default or breach.
5. Notices. All notices required or permitted hereunder will be in writing, delivered personally, by email, or by nationally recognized overnight courier (e.g., FedEx) at the parties’ respective addresses, if personally delivered; when receipt is electronically confirmed, if transmitted by facsimile or email; the day after it is sent, if sent for next day delivery by recognized overnight delivery service; and upon receipt, if sent by certified or registered mail, return receipt requested. Notices to Company shall be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org or to such other address as Friends-Zone designates in writing. Notices to you will be sent to the most recently listed in association with your account on the Services or to such other address as Customer designates in writing. You agree that Friends-Zone may send any privacy or other notices, disclosures, reports, documents, communications and other records regarding the Services (collectively, “Notices”) in electronic form to: (1) the email address that you provided during registration, or (2) by posting the Notice on the Services. The delivery of any Notice is effective when posted to the Services or sent by Friends-Zone (whichever first occurs), regardless of whether you read the Notice when you receive it or whether you actually receive the delivery. You can withdraw your consent to receive Notices electronically by cancelling your account. You must give notice to us in writing via email to email@example.com or another address otherwise expressly provided.
6. Force Majeure. Neither party will be liable to the other for failure to fulfill obligations hereunder if such failure is due to causes beyond its control, including acts of God, earthquake, fire, flood, embargo, catastrophe, sabotage, utility or transmission failures, governmental prohibitions or regulations, national emergencies, insurrections, riots or war.
7. No Agency. Neither party has the ability to bind the other party to any agreements or other obligations and will not attempt to do so. Friends-Zone and you are independent contractors, and nothing in this Agreement creates any partnership, joint venture or agency relationship. As between each other, each party is fully responsible for all persons and entities it employs or retains.
8. Remedies. All rights and remedies of the parties, under this Agreement, in law or at equity, are cumulative and may be exercised concurrently or separately. The exercise of one remedy will not be an election of that remedy to the exclusion of other remedies. A party’s breach or threatened breach of any of its covenants or agreements in this Agreement may cause irreparable injury that is inadequately compensable in monetary damages.
