12. Governing Law and Jurisdiction
This Site is operated from the US. All matters arising out of or relating to these Terms are governed by and construed in accordance with the internal laws of the State of Oregon without giving effect to any choice or conflict of law provision or rule (whether of the State of Oregon or any other jurisdiction) that would cause the application of the laws of any jurisdiction other than those of the State of Oregon.


13. Dispute Resolution and Binding Arbitration.
    1. YOU AND WE ARE AGREEING TO GIVE UP ANY RIGHTS TO LITIGATE CLAIMS IN A COURT OR BEFORE A JURY, OR TO PARTICIPATE IN A CLASS ACTION OR REPRESENTATIVE ACTION WITH RESPECT TO A CLAIM. OTHER RIGHTS THAT YOU WOULD HAVE IF YOU WENT TO COURT MAY ALSO BE UNAVAILABLE OR MAY BE LIMITED IN ARBITRATION.

B. Mandatory Binding Arbitration.

      1. Any dispute, claim, interpretation, controversy, or issues of public policy arising out of relating to these Terms, including the determination of the scope or applicability of this Section 13, that is arbitrable will be determined exclusively by binding arbitration held in Portland, Oregon, and will be governed exclusively by the Oregon Uniform Arbitration Act, §§ 36.600, et seq., O.R.S. (the “OUAA”).
      2. The arbitrator will be selected from the roster of arbitrators at National Academy of Distinguished Neutrals in Portland, Oregon (“NADN”), unless the parties agree otherwise. If the parties do not agree on the selection of a single arbitrator within ten Business Days after a demand for arbitration has been made, then NADN will select the arbitrator from among its available professionals. An arbitration will be held in Portland, Oregon. Arbitration of all disputes and the outcome of the arbitration will remain confidential between the parties except as necessary to obtain a court judgment on the award or other relief or to engage in collection of the judgment.
      3. You and we irrevocably submit to the exclusive jurisdiction of the state courts located in Portland, Oregon, with respect to this Section 13 to compel arbitration, to confirm an arbitration award or order, or to handle court functions permitted under the OUAA. The parties irrevocably waive defense of an inconvenient forum to the maintenance of any such action or other proceeding. The parties may seek recognition and enforcement of any Oregon state court judgment confirming an arbitration award or order in any United States state court or any court outside the United States or its territories having jurisdiction with respect to recognition or enforcement of such judgment.
      4. Prior to resolution or a decision by the arbitrator, each party shall bear its own costs and expenses and an equal share of the arbitrator’s expenses and administrative fees of arbitration. The arbitrator shall award all costs, reasonable attorneys' fees, and expenses of the arbitration proceeding to the substantially prevailing party, as determined by the arbitrator.

      C. You agree to an arbitration on an individual basis. In any dispute, NEITHER YOU NOR WE WILL BE ENTITLED TO JOIN OR CONSOLIDATE CLAIMS BY OR AGAINST OTHER CUSTOMERS IN COURT OR IN ARBITRATION OR OTHERWISE PARTICIPATE IN ANY CLAIM AS A CLASS REPRESENTATIVE, CLASS MEMBER OR IN A PRIVATE ATTORNEY GENERAL CAPACITY. The arbitral tribunal may not consolidate more than one person’s claims, and may not otherwise preside over any form of a representative or class proceeding. The arbitral tribunal has no power to consider the enforceability of this class arbitration waiver and any challenge to the class arbitration waiver may only be raised in a court of competent jurisdiction.

If any provision of this arbitration agreement is found unenforceable, the unenforceable provision will be severed, and the remaining arbitration terms will be enforced.

14. Indemnity
You will indemnify and hold us and our subsidiaries, affiliates, licensors, content providers, service providers, employees, agents, officers, directors, and contractors (collectively, the “Indemnified Parties”) harmless from any breach of these Terms by you, including any use of Content or Products other than as expressly authorized in these Terms.

Any purported assignment or delegation in violation of this Section 15 is null and void. No assignment or delegation relieves you of any of your obligations under these Terms.

16. No Waivers
