and Governing Law
In the event that the selected firm cannot administer the arbitration, the party filing the arbitration will select another of the firms. Each party will bear its own expenses, and the parties will share equally the filing and other fees of the arbitration firm and the expenses of the arbitrator, except that the arbitrator will be entitled to award a different allocation of costs and fees where the arbitrator determines that a filed claim is frivolous.
The arbitrator will not have the power to award punitive damages or other damages not measured by the prevailing party's actual damages, except as may be required by statute. Any award in arbitration initiated under this clause will be limited to monetary damages and will include no injunction or direction to any party other than the direction to pay a monetary amount, except as required by statute or to comply with the terms of the contract. Any award rendered by the arbitrator will be final and binding upon each of the parties, and judgment thereon may be entered in any court having jurisdiction thereof. The Federal Arbitration Act will govern the interpretation and enforcement of this section.
During the pending of such arbitration and until final judgment thereon has been entered, these Terms will remain in full force and effect unless otherwise terminated as provided hereunder. If a provision of this clause is held to be invalid, the remainder of the clause will remain in full force and effect, and, to this end, the provisions of this clause are severable.
These Terms and all
transactions between you and GTI shall be governed by, and construed and
enforced in accordance with, the internal laws of the State of Florida, without
regard to principles of conflicts of laws.
For purposes of this
Section, you agree that any action or proceeding with regard to such injunction
restraining such violation, attempted violation, or threatened violation shall
be brought in the courts of record of Orange County, Florida, or the United
States District Court, Middle District of Florida. You consent to the
jurisdiction of such court and waive any objection to the laying of the venue
of any such action or proceeding in such court. You agree that service of any
court paper may be effected on such party by mail or in such other manner as
may be provided under applicable laws, rules of procedure or local rules.
The headings contained in these Terms are for convenience of reference only, are not to be considered a part of these Terms, and shall not limit or otherwise affect in any way the meaning or interpretation of these Terms.
All covenants, agreements, representations and warranties made in these Terms, as may be amended by GTI from time to time, shall survive your acceptance of these Terms and the termination of these Terms.
These Terms represent
the entire understanding and agreement between you and GTI regarding the
subject matter of these Terms, and supersedes all other previous agreements,
understandings and/or representations regarding the same.
