8.8 Governing Law. These Terms, the EYES/ONLY Solution, EYES/ONLY Offerings, Content, and any disputes related to or concerning any of the foregoing (including tort as well as contract claims, and whether pre-contractual or extra-contractual), will be governed by and settled in accordance with the laws of Tennessee and controlling US law, notwithstanding the choice of laws rules of any jurisdiction to the contrary. You agree that regardless of any statute or law to the contrary, any claim or cause of action arising out of or related to these Terms, the EYES/ONLY Solution, EYES/ONLY Offerings or Content, must be filed within one year after such claim or cause of action arose, or be forever barred.
8.9 Dispute Resolution. Any disputes between or claims brought by you or us arising out of or related to these Terms, the EYES/ONLY Solution, EYES/ONLY Offerings, or Content (including tort as well as contract claims, and whether pre-contractual or extra-contractual, as well as the arbitrability of any disputes) will be referred to and finally settled by binding arbitration before the American Arbitration Association ("AAA") in accordance with the Commercial Rules of Arbitration in effect at the time of arbitration except as inconsistent with this section. The arbitration will be conducted by telephone, on-line and/or based solely upon written submissions where no in-person appearance is required. If in-person appearance is required, such hearings will be held in Nashville, Tennessee unless another location is mutually agreed upon by the parties. In all such cases, the arbitration will be administered by the AAA in accordance with their applicable rules. The arbitrator will apply the law specified in section 8.8 above. All awards may if necessary be enforced by any court having jurisdiction. The existence of any dispute, the existence or details of the arbitration proceeding, and all related documents, materials, evidence, judgments and awards therein, will be kept confidential. Except as required by law, no party will make any public announcements with respect to the proceeding or the award, except as required to enforce same. Notwithstanding the foregoing, nothing in this section will preclude the right and ability to file and maintain at any time an action for recovery of injunctive or provisional relief in any court of competent jurisdiction under the laws applicable thereto. All claims (excluding requests for injunctive or equitable relief) between the parties must be resolved using arbitration in accordance with this section. Should either party file an action contrary to this section, the other party may recover lawyers' fees and costs, provided that the party seeking the award has notified the other party in writing of the improperly filed claim, and the other party has failed to withdraw the claim.
The parties hereby waive the right to a trial by jury and agree to only bring claims in an individual capacity and not as a plaintiff or class member in any purported class or representative proceeding. In addition, we each agree that all disputes will be arbitrated only on an individual basis and not in a class, consolidated or representative action. The arbitrator does not have the power to vary these provisions.
8.10 Assignment. These Terms will not be assigned, delegated, or transferred by you, in whole or in part, whether voluntary, involuntary, by merger, consolidation, dissolution, sale of assets, or otherwise, without our prior written consent. Any such purported assignment, delegation or transfer without such written consent will be void. We may at any time assign these Terms without prior consent or notice. These Terms will be binding on, and inure to the benefit of, the parties and their respective and permitted successors and assigns.
8.11 Injunctive Relief. You acknowledge and agree that breach of these Terms, or any unauthorized use, disclosure or distribution of the EYES/ONLY Solution or Content, may cause irreparable harm to us, the extent of which would be difficult to ascertain, and that we will be entitled to seek immediate injunctive relief (in addition to any other available remedies, including remedies under applicable intellectual property rights law, the availability of which you hereby acknowledge), in any court of competent jurisdiction under the applicable laws thereto.
8.12 Tennessee-Based Site. The EYES/ONLY Solution is controlled by EYES/ONLY from its offices in Tennessee. We make no representation that the EYES/ONLY Solution is appropriate for use in other jurisdictions. Your use of or access to the EYES/ONLY Solution will not be construed as our purposefully availing ourselves of the benefits or privileges of doing business in any other state or jurisdiction other than Tennessee.
8.13 General. The Terms constitute the entire agreement between us and govern each EYES/ONLY Client's use of the EYES/ONLY Solution, superseding any prior agreements. Each EYES/ONLY Client may be subject to additional terms and conditions that may apply when that EYES/ONLY Client uses or purchases EYES/ONLY Offerings. If any provision of the Terms is found by a court of competent jurisdiction to be invalid, the parties nevertheless agree that the court should endeavor to give effect to the parties' intentions as reflected in the provision, and the other provisions of the Terms remain in full force and effect. No waiver of any provision of these Terms will be deemed a further waiver or continuing waiver or such provision or any other provision, and our failure to assert any right or provision under these Terms will not constitute a waiver of such right or provision. Nothing herein will be deemed to create an agency, partnership, joint venture, employee-employer or franchisor-franchisee relationship of any kind between us and any user or other person or entity, nor do these terms extend rights to any third party. The parties hereto confirm that they have requested that these Terms and all attachments and related documents, if any, be drafted in English. Les parties ont exigé que le présent contrat et tous les documents connexes soient rédigés en anglais.
