ARBITRATION AND GOVERNING LAW

These Terms shall be governed by and interpreted in accordance with the laws of the State of Tennessee in the United States of America. You agree that prior to bringing a case in court, you will arbitrate any dispute related to the Terms of Use or use of the Website. Should any dispute involving the Terms of Use or use of the Website proceed to court, you agree to submit to the jurisdiction of the Courts located in Nashville, Tennessee and that any action concerning these Terms or your access or use of the Website shall be within the exclusive jurisdiction of such Courts.

The parties will arbitrate any dispute pursuant to the applicable rules of the Judicial Arbitration and Mediation Services (“JAMS”) or the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”). Any arbitration shall take place in Nashville, Tennessee, before an arbitrator chosen from JAMS or the AAA. Any award shall be final, binding, and conclusive upon the parties, and a judgment rendered thereon may be entered in any court having jurisdiction thereof. The arbitrator may award any form of remedy or relief (including injunctive relief, such as temporary restraining orders, preliminary and permanent injunctions) that would otherwise be available in court. Any award pursuant to said arbitration shall be accompanied by a written opinion of the arbitrator setting forth the reason for the award. To the extent not inconsistent with applicable laws, the arbitrator will have the authority to hear and grant motions and applications, including on an ex parte or expedited basis.

If any provision of these Terms is held by a court of competent jurisdiction to be invalid or unenforceable, then such provision shall be enforced to the maximum extent permissible so as to effect the intent of these Terms, and the remainder of these Terms shall continue in full force and effect.
