14.              Governing Law. These Terms and the relationship between you and the Campaign shall be governed by the laws of the State of Nevada without regard to any conflicts of laws principles.  Further, to the extent the arbitration provisions of these Terms are void, unenforceable, or inapplicable, you agree that all actions or proceedings arising in connection with your use of the Site and these Terms shall be tried and litigated exclusively in the State and Federal courts located in the Clark County, State of Nevada.  The aforementioned choice of venue is intended to be mandatory and not permissive in nature, thereby precluding the possibility of litigation between you and the Campaign with respect to or arising out of these Terms in any jurisdiction other than that specified in this Section. You hereby waive any right you may have to assert the doctrine of forum non conveniens or similar doctrine or to object to venue with respect to any proceeding brought in accordance with this paragraph, and stipulate that the State and Federal courts located in the Clark County, State of Nevada shall have personal jurisdiction and venue over you for the purpose of litigating any dispute, controversy, or proceeding arising out of or related to your use of the Site or these Terms.  You hereby authorize and accept service of process sufficient for personal jurisdiction in any action against you as contemplated by this paragraph by registered or certified mail, return receipt requested, postage prepaid.  Any final judgment rendered against a party in any action or proceeding shall be conclusive as to the subject of such final judgment and may be enforced in other jurisdictions in any manner provided by law.  You agree that regardless of any statute or law to the contrary, any claim or cause of action arising out of or related to (i) the use of the Site, or (ii) these Terms, must be filed within one (1) year after such claim or cause of action arose or be forever barred. You also agree that these Terms shall not be construed against the drafting party, i.e., the Campaign.

15.              Binding Arbitration.

15.1          EXCEPT AS OTHERWISE PROVIDED IN THESE TERMS, YOU AND THE CAMPAIGN MUTUALLY AGREE TO WAIVE OUR RESPECTIVE RIGHTS TO RESOLUTION OF DISPUTES IN A COURT OF LAW BY A JUDGE OR JURY AND AGREE TO RESOLVE ANY DISPUTE BY ARBITRATION, AS SET FORTH BELOW.

15.2          Any dispute between the parties to these Terms, any dispute between you and the Campaign, as well as any controversy or claim arising out of or relating to these Terms or the Site (in each case, a “Dispute”) will be settled by arbitration before a single arbitrator administered by the American Arbitration Association under its Consumer Arbitration Rules that are in effect at the time the arbitration is initiated, as modified by the terms set forth in these Terms.  Copies of these rules can be obtained at the AAA’s website (www.adr.org) (the “AAA Rules”) or by calling the AAA at 1-800-778-7879.  Notwithstanding the foregoing, if requested by you and if proper based on the facts and circumstances of the Disputes presented, the arbitrator shall have the discretion to select a different set of AAA Rules, but in no event shall the arbitrator consolidate more than one person’s Disputes, or otherwise preside over any form of representative, collective, or class proceeding. The parties may select a different arbitration administrator upon mutual written agreement.  The arbitration shall be governed by the state law or federal law applicable to each specific claim brought, with the exception that arbitrability shall be determined by the arbitrator and governed in primary conformity with the Federal Arbitration Act, 9 U.S.C. § 1 et seq. and, secondly, any state arbitration act. 

15.3          The arbitrator will decide the substance of all claims in accordance with applicable law, and will honor all claims of privilege recognized by law. The arbitrator’s award shall be final and binding and judgment on the award rendered by the arbitrator may be entered in any court having jurisdiction thereof, provided that any award may be challenged in a court of competent jurisdiction.

15.4          To ensure timely resolution of disputes, the party initiating arbitration must do so within the statute of limitations (deadline for filing) provided by applicable law pertaining to the Dispute, subject to any shorter period of time set forth in these Terms which is intended to shorten the applicable statute of limitations.  The failure to initiate arbitration within this time limit will bar any such claim. 

15.5          The arbitration will be conducted in Clark County, Nevada, before a neutral arbitrator.  The arbitration will have jurisdiction to determine the arbitrability of any claim.  The arbitrator shall have the authority to grant all monetary or equitable relief (including, without limitation, ancillary costs and fees) available under state and federal law.  The award rendered by the arbitrator shall be in writing, setting forth the essential findings and conclusions upon which the award is based.  The award may be entered and enforced by any court having jurisdiction thereof.  These Terms and its enforcement shall be governed by the law of the state of Nevada and any discovery shall be permitted in accordance with the Federal Arbitration Act and any applicable state arbitration act, subject to AAA Rules. 

15.6          No Class or Consolidated Disputes.

15.6.1    YOU AND THE CAMPAIGN AGREE THAT YOU MAY BRING CLAIMS, AS APPLICABLE, AGAINST THE CAMPAIGN ONLY IN YOUR  INDIVIDUAL CAPACITY, AND NOT AS A PLAINTIFF OR CLASS MEMBER IN ANY PURPORTED CLASS OR REPRESENTATIVE PROCEEDING.  Further, unless both you and the Campaign agree otherwise, the trier of fact may not consolidate more than one person’s claims, and may not otherwise preside over any form of a representative or class proceeding.  The arbitrator shall have no authority to consider or resolve any Dispute or issue any relief on any basis other than an individual basis. The arbitrator shall have no authority to consider or resolve any Dispute or issue any relief on a class, collective, or representative basis. The arbitrator may award declaratory or injunctive relief only in favor of the individual party seeking relief and only to the extent necessary to provide relief warranted by that party’s individual claims.

15.7          The exceptions to the Dispute resolution provisions of this Section are: (a) actions by the Campaign for equitable relief; and (b) any other claim where an agreement to arbitrate is unenforceable under applicable law and not preempted by the FAA. To the extent that either party has the right to seek assistance from, file charges with, or participate in investigations and proceedings of any federal, state or local agency, such rights are not precluded by this dispute resolution provision, but this dispute resolution provision does operate as a waiver of any additional personal monetary recovery if related to any Dispute.  In the event of any administrative or judicial action by any agency or third party that adjudicates any Dispute, neither the Campaign, nor you, shall be permitted to receive a double recovery.

15.8          Severability. In the event that any portion of this Section is deemed illegal or unenforceable under applicable law, and not preempted by the FAA, such provision shall be severed and the remainder of the provisions of this Section will be given full force and effect.

16.              Questions.  If you have any questions or comments regarding these Terms or the Site, feel free to contact us at [email protected] or by mail at PO Box 336664, North Las Vegas, NV 89033. 

17.              Severability.  If any non-material provision of these Terms is illegal or unenforceable under applicable law, the remainder of the provision will be amended to achieve as closely as possible the effect of the original term and all other provisions of these Terms will continue in full force and effect.

18.              Waiver.  No failure to exercise, and no delay in exercising, on the part of either party, any right or any power hereunder shall operate as a waiver thereof, nor shall any single or partial exercise of any right or power hereunder preclude further exercise of that or any other right hereunder.

19.              Termination.  Notwithstanding any of these Terms the Campaign reserves the right, without notice and in its sole discretion, to terminate your license to use the Site, and to block or prevent future access to and use of the Site.  All of the terms of these Terms (excluding our license grants to you) will survive any termination or suspension.
