Binding Arbitration
You and us agree that any controversy or claim arising out of or relating to the Platform, use of the Platform, these Terms, and/or the Privacy Policy will be settled by binding arbitration in the Trinity, Florida, United States area.

The JAMES Rules and Procedures are available at www.jamsadr.com. The arbitrator will be selected pursuant to the JAMS Rules and Procedures. The arbitrator will apply Florida law consistent with the Federal Arbitration Act and applicable statutes of limitations, and will honor claims of privilege recognized at law. If any part of this arbitration provision is deemed to be invalid, unenforceable or illegal (other than that claims will not be arbitrated on a class or representative basis), or otherwise conflicts with the rules and procedures established by JAMS, the balance of this arbitration provision will remain in effect and will be construed in accordance with its terms as if the invalid, unenforceable, illegal or conflicting provision were not contained.

THE ARBITRATOR MAY NOT CONSOLIDATE OR JOIN THE CLAIMS OF OTHER PERSONS OR PARTIES WHO MAY BE SIMILARLY SITUATED.
