20.1 You and we agree to first attempt in good faith to resolve any dispute, claim or controversy (collectively "Dispute") by amicable negotiation. You agree to give us written notice of any Dispute by written notice containing a brief explanation of the Dispute together with your name, address, telephone number and email address. Your written notice must be sent to: firstname.lastname@example.org. We and you will attempt in good faith to resolve the Dispute.

The Arbitrator may grant injunctions or other equitable relief in such dispute or controversy. The decision of the Arbitrator shall be final, conclusive, and binding on the parties to the arbitration. Judgment may be entered on the Arbitrator's decision in any court having jurisdiction. It is intended by the parties that all disputes arising from or related to the relationship reflected in this Agreement be subject to mandatory arbitration. All awards made pursuant to any arbitration proceeding conducted hereunder shall be in US$.
20.3 Each party's promise to resolve claims of arbitration is consideration for the other party's like promise. We shall each pay our respective costs and expenses of arbitration. Each party shall bear their own attorneys’ fees and expenses.
20.4 In rendering an award, the arbitral tribunal shall be required to follow the laws of the State of West Virginia without reference to its conflicts of law principles. The arbitral tribunal is not empowered to award damages in excess of compensatory damages or as otherwise limited in these Terms of Service, and each party hereby irrevocably waives any right to recover punitive, exemplary or similar damages with respect to any dispute. The award shall be in writing and shall briefly state the findings of fact and conclusions of law on which it is based.
20.5 Any arbitration proceedings, decision or award rendered hereunder and the validity, effect and interpretation of this arbitration agreement shall be governed by the Federal Arbitration Act, 9 U.S.C. §1 et seq. The award shall be the sole and exclusive remedy between the parties regarding any claims, counterclaims, issues or accounting presented to the arbitrators. Judgment upon the award may be entered in any court having jurisdiction. Any costs or fees (including attorneys' fees and expenses) incident to enforcing the arbitral award shall be charged against the party resisting such enforcement.
20.6 By agreeing to arbitration, the parties do not intend to deprive any court of its jurisdiction to issue a pre-arbitral injunction or other equitable relief, pre-arbitral attachment, or other order to compel arbitration or in aid of arbitration proceedings and the enforcement of any award, but such shall not be sought as a means to avoid or stay arbitration. Without prejudice to such provisional remedies as may be available under the jurisdiction of a court, the arbitral tribunal shall have full authority to grant provisional remedies and to direct the parties to request that any court modify or vacate any temporary or preliminary relief issued by such court, and to award damages for the failure of any party to respect the arbitral tribunal's orders to that effect.
20.7 You and we agree that any claim or Dispute, and any related legal action, arbitration, or proceeding, must be commenced within one (1) year after the claim or Dispute first accrues or arises, otherwise it will be deemed to be time barred.

The invalidity or unenforceability of any term or provision of these Terms of Service and any agreement related to these Terms of Service shall not affect the validity or enforceability of any of the remaining terms or provisions thereof. It is intended that the provisions of these Terms of Service and any such agreements shall be enforced to the fullest extent possible under the laws and public policy of each jurisdiction in which such enforcement is sought, and that the unenforceability or modification to conform with such laws or public policies of any provision of these Terms of Service and any related agreements shall not render unenforceable or impair the remainder of these Terms of Service or such agreements. Accordingly, in the event any provision of these Terms of Service or any such agreement shall be determined by an arbitrator or court of competent jurisdiction to be invalid or unenforceable, in whole or in part, these Terms of Service and any such agreement shall be deemed amended to delete or modify (as and to the extent determined necessary by the said arbitrator or court) the invalid and unenforceable provisions, or portions thereof, or to alter the balance of these Terms of Service and any such agreement in order to render them valid and enforceable to the maximum extent possible.
A waiver by us of any covenants, conditions or agreements to be performed by you or any breach thereof shall not be construed to be a waiver of any succeeding breach thereof or of any other covenant, condition or agreement herein contained.
24.1 These Terms of Service and any related agreement shall have West Virginia as its situs and shall be governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of West Virginia, without reference to its conflicts of law principles.
We and you agree as follows:
(A) We and you irrevocably and exclusively consent and submit to the jurisdiction and venue of the federal and state courts having jurisdiction over Huntington, West Virginia (the "West Virginia Courts"), for the purpose of an order to compel arbitration, for preliminary relief in aid of arbitration or for a preliminary injunction to maintain the status quo or prevent irreparable harm prior to the appointment of the arbitrators, and to the non-exclusive jurisdiction of the West Virginia Courts for the enforcement of any award issued hereunder;
(B) We and you waive, to the extent not prohibited by applicable law, and agree not to assert, by way of motion, as a defense or otherwise, in any such action, any claim that it is not subject personally to the jurisdiction of any such West Virginia Court, that any such action brought in any such West Virginia Court should be dismissed on grounds of forum non conveniens, should be transferred to any court other than any such West Virginia Court, or should be stayed by reason of the pendency of some other proceeding in any other court other than any such West Virginia Court, or that this Agreement or the subject matter hereof may not be enforced in or by any such West Virginia Court; and
(C) We and you agree not to commence any such action other than before any such West Virginia Court nor to make any motion or take any other action seeking or intending to cause the transfer or removal of any such action to any court other than any such West Virginia Court whether on the grounds of forum non conveniens or otherwise.
The paragraph and section headings in these Terms of Service are for reference purposes only and shall not affect in any way the meaning or interpretation of these Terms of Service. There will be no presumption against either you or us on the grounds we were responsible for preparing or drafting these Terms of Service. The words "include", "includes", and "including" when used herein shall be deemed in each case to be followed by the words "without limitation." The word "herein" and similar references mean, except where a specific paragraph or section reference is expressly indicated, the entire Terms of Service rather than any specific paragraph or section. Throughout these Terms of Service, any reference to the masculine gender shall include the feminine and neuter, and any reference to the female gender shall include the masculine and the neuter, and any reference to the singular shall include the plural, and vice versa. A reference to "day," "month," "quarter," or "year" shall mean the calendar day, month, quarter or year unless expressly provided otherwise. In computing any period of time prescribed or allowed by this Agreement, the day of the notice, act or other event from which the period of time begins to run is not included, and the last day is included, unless it is a Saturday, Sunday, or a legal holiday for national banks in the United States, in which event the period runs until the close of business on the next day which is not one of such days. Otherwise, Saturdays, Sundays and legal holidays are included even though the period of time prescribed or allowed is less than seven days.
The terms and provisions of these Terms of Service and any related agreement which are intended to survive, and all provisions related to the interpretation and enforcement thereof, shall survive the termination of any agreement and your subscription as necessary to give full force and effect thereto.
Any delays in or failure of performance by us shall not constitute a default by us or give rise to any claims for damages, if and to the extent such delays or failures of performance are caused by acts of war, acts or failures to act of government, revolution, civil commotion, strike, lockout, blockage, embargo, terrorism, or sabotage, fires, earthquakes, floods, explosions, or other events whether similar or dissimilar which are not within our reasonable control, and which by exercise of reasonable diligence we are unable to prevent. In the event of an occurrence of Force Majeure, the time for our performance affected thereby shall be extended for a period of time as reasonably required under the circumstances. If the duration of a Force Majeure event exceeds twenty (20) days, you may terminate your agreement with us upon prior written notice to us.
