The validity, interpretation, and performance of these Terms and the information on our website, and any claim relating to the Terms and information shall be governed by the substantive laws of the State of Wyoming, without reference to choice of laws provisions.
You agree to protect, defend, indemnify, and hold us and our parent, subsidiaries, shareholders, members, officers, directors, managers, employees, agents, and representatives (together, “Indemnified Parties”) harmless from and against any and all claims, causes of action, liabilities, judgments, penalties, losses, costs, damages, and expenses (including attorneys’ fees and all related costs and expenses for litigation and/or arbitration) suffered or incurred by the Indemnified Parties, including, without limitation, any claim arising from:

WAIVER, SEVERABILITY & ASSIGNMENT.
Our failure to enforce a provision of these Terms is not a waiver of our right to do so at a later date. If a provision of these Terms is found to be unenforceable, the remaining provisions of the Terms will remain in full force and effect. You may not assign your rights and obligations under these Terms. We may assign our rights or obligations to any successor in interest of any business associated with the Site to the extent approved by law.
We shall not be considered to be in breach or default of these Terms, and shall not be liable for any cessation, interruption, or delay in the performance of its Site or other obligations by reason of earthquake, flood, fire, storm, lightning, drought, landslide, hurricane, cyclone, typhoon, tornado, natural disaster, act of God or of the public enemy, epidemic, famine or plague, action of a court or public authority, change in law, explosion, war, terrorism, armed conflict, labor strike, lockout, boycott, or other similar event that is beyond our reasonable control, whether foreseen or unforeseen (each a “Force Majeure Event”). If a Force Majeure Event continues for more than sixty days in the aggregate, we may immediately terminate our Site and shall have no liability for, or as a result of, any such termination.
ARBITRATION AND LIMITATION OF TIME TO INITIATE A DISPUTE.
By utilizing this Site, you understand and agree to submit any disputes between us to binding arbitration in Wyoming. You agree that any action or proceeding by you relating to any dispute must commence within one year after the alleged cause of action accrues.
In most cases, we can resolve concerns by phone at (307)620-7385 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org. In the unlikely event that we are unable to resolve your complaint to your satisfaction, we each agree to resolve those disputes through binding arbitration under the auspices of JAMS Alternative Dispute Resolution (“JAMS”).
JAMS will administer any such arbitration under its Comprehensive Arbitration Rules. If the amount of the claims and counterclaims are less than Two Hundred and Fifty Thousand Dollars ($250,000.00), then the JAMS Streamlined Arbitration Rules and Procedures will be used.
You agree that any arbitration pursuant to these Terms will be on an individual basis, and that you will not bring a claim as a plaintiff or class member in a class, consolidated, or representative action. You further agree that class arbitrations, class actions, and consolidation with other arbitrations will not be allowed. All disputes and claims between us will be heard by a single arbitrator.
