9.  Governing Law and Venue

These Terms shall be governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of the State of Tennessee, without regard to its choice of laws provisions. You agree that, subject to the following paragraphs, any action arising out of or relating in any way to your use of this Site may be commenced only in the state or federal courts in Nashville, Tennessee, within one (1) year after the claim arises.

You agree that any dispute arising out of or relating in any way to your use of this Site requires that the claim be resolved exclusively by confidential binding arbitration except that, except to the extent APP brings a claim against you, including but not limited to if you have in any manner violated or threatened to violate APP’s intellectual property rights, for which APP may seek injunctive or other appropriate relief. The arbitration shall be conducted in accordance with the rules of the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”), as then in effect. No claims of any other parties may be joined or otherwise combined in the arbitration proceeding. Unless otherwise expressly required by applicable law, each party shall bear its own attorneys’ fees without regard to which party is deemed the prevailing party in the arbitration proceeding. Except for punitive and consequential damages (which may not be awarded), and subject to these Terms, the arbitrators shall be authorized to award either party any provisional or equitable remedy permitted by applicable law. The parties shall equally share all AAA charges and fees associated with the arbitration.

BECAUSE THE USE OF THIS SITE REQUIRES THE ARBITRATION OF ANY CLAIMS OR DISPUTES EXISTING BETWEEN THE PARTIES AND BROUGHT BY YOU, YOU WILL NOT HAVE THE RIGHT TO PURSUE THAT CLAIM IN COURT OR BEFORE A JUDGE OR JURY OR TO PARTICIPATE IN A CLASS ACTION OR ANY OTHER COLLECTIVE OR REPRESENTATIVE PROCEEDING. THE ARBITRATORS’ DECISION WILL BE FINAL AND BINDING. OTHER RIGHTS THAT YOU WOULD HAVE IF YOU WENT TO COURT, INCLUDING WITHOUT LIMITATION THE RIGHT TO CONDUCT DISCOVERY OR TO APPEAL, MAY BE LIMITED OR UNAVAILABLE IN ARBITRATION.

The award of the arbitrators may be enforced in any court having jurisdiction thereof. Each party consents (a) to the exclusive jurisdiction of the state or federal courts located in Nashville, Tennessee for any action (i) to compel arbitration, (ii) to enforce any award of the arbitrators, or (iii) at any time prior to the qualification and appointment of the arbitrators, for temporary, interim, or provisional equitable remedies, and (b) to service of process in any action by registered mail or any other means provided by law. Should this Section be deemed invalid or otherwise unenforceable for any reason, it shall be severed and the parties agree that the sole and exclusive jurisdiction and venue for any claims will be in the state or federal courts in Nashville, Tennessee.
