If there is a conflict between the AAA Rules and the rules set forth in these Terms, the rules set forth in these Terms will govern.

Unless the parties agree otherwise, the arbitration will be conducted in Pinellas County, Florida. Each party will be responsible for paying any filing, administrative and arbitrator fees in accordance with the AAA Rules. The award rendered by the arbitrator shall include costs of arbitration, reasonable attorneys’ fees and reasonable costs for expert and other witnesses.

YOU AGREE THAT REGARDLESS OF ANY STATUTE OR LAW TO THE CONTRARY, ANY DISPUTE ARISING OUT OF OR RELATED TO THE SERVICES OR ANY CONTENT MUST BE FILED WITHIN ONE (1) YEAR AFTER SUCH CLAIM OR CAUSE OF ACTION AROSE, OR SUCH DISPUTE WILL BE FOREVER BARRED.

These Terms, and your access to and use of the Services shall be governed by and construed and enforced in accordance with the laws of the State of Florida, without regard to conflict of law rules or principles (whether of the State of Florida or any other jurisdiction) that would cause the application of the laws of any other jurisdiction.
