Governing Law; Venue; Arbitration; Class Action Waiver.

  • By using the App, you agree that any dispute or claim arising out of the App or these Terms will be settled by binding arbitration in the metropolitan area of Detroit, Michigan under the American Arbitration Association Rules. Regardless of any law to the contrary, any claim against us must be filed within one year of the time such claim arose, otherwise such claim will be barred forever. We agree that regardless of any law to the contrary, that the arbitrator will have no authority to award, punitive or exemplary damages. The arbitrator will award to the prevailing party, if any, as determined by the arbitrator, all of its costs and fees. Notwithstanding the above, we may apply to any court of competent jurisdiction for a temporary restraining order or other interim relief, as necessary without breach of the Terms and without abridgment of the powers of the arbitrator.
  • These Terms and the App will be governed by the laws of the State of Michigan, without regard to conflicts of laws provisions and such law will be applied by the arbitrator to the merits of any dispute or claim. For any non-arbitral action or proceeding arising out of or related to the App or these Terms, sole and exclusive jurisdiction will reside with any court sitting in Oakland County of the State of Michigan, or the United States District Court for the Eastern District of Michigan.
  • The App is and remains a U.S. offering and all use of the information collected is and will remain subject to U.S. law and practice. The App is intended for use by U.S. residents only.
  • By using the App, you irrevocably waive any rights to seek and/or obtain injunctive or other equitable relief and any defense of forum non conveniens. Any and all disputes, claims and causes of action arising out of or connected with the App or these Terms will be resolved individually, without resort to any form of class action.
