Arbitration

Any controversy or claim arising out of or relating to these Terms of Use, the Website or your use thereof, including disputes arising from or concerning the interpretation, violation, invalidity, non-performance or termination of these Terms of Use, shall be settled by arbitration administered by the American Arbitration Association in accordance with its Commercial Arbitration Rules, and judgment on the award rendered by the arbitrator(s) may be entered in any court having jurisdiction thereof.

Claims shall be heard by a single arbitrator.  The place of arbitration shall be Athens, Texas.  The arbitration shall be governed by the laws of the State of Texas.  Hearings will take place pursuant to the standard procedures of the Commercial Arbitration Rules that contemplate in person hearings.  The arbitrators will have no authority to award punitive or other damages not measured by the prevailing party’s actual damages, except as may be required by statute.  The arbitrator(s) shall not award consequential damages in any arbitration initiated under this section.  The arbitrator(s) shall award to the prevailing party, if any, as determined by the arbitrators, all of their costs and fees.  “Costs and fees” mean all reasonable pre-award expenses of the arbitration, including the arbitrators’ fees, administrative fees, travel expenses, out-of-pocket expenses such as copying and telephone, court costs, witness fees and attorneys’ fees.

Except as may be required by law, neither a party nor an arbitrator may disclose the existence, content or results of any arbitration hereunder without the prior written consent of both parties.  The parties agree that failure or refusal of a party to pay its required share of the deposits for arbitrator compensation or administrative charges shall constitute a waiver by that party to present evidence or cross-examine witness.  In such event, the other party shall be required to present evidence and legal argument as the arbitrator(s) may require for the making of an award.  Such waiver shall not allow for a default judgment against the non-paying party in the absence of evidence presented as provided for above.

Governing Law and Jurisdiction 

Subject to the foregoing arbitration provisions, all matters relating to the Website and these Terms of Use and any dispute or claim arising therefrom or related thereto (in each case, including non-contractual disputes or claims), shall be governed by and construed in accordance with the internal laws of the State of Texas without giving effect to any choice or conflict of law provision or rule (whether of the State of Texas or any other jurisdiction).

Subject to the foregoing arbitration provisions, any suit, action or proceeding arising out of or related to these Terms of Use or the Website shall be instituted exclusively in the State courts situated in Henderson County, Texas, or the United States District Court for the Eastern District of Texas, Tyler Division, although we retain the right to bring any suit, action or proceeding against you for breach of these Terms of Use in your country of residence or any other relevant country.  You waive any and all objections to the exercise of jurisdiction over you by such courts and to venue in such courts.

Waiver and Severability 

No waiver by Blue Heron of any term or condition set out in these Terms of Use shall be deemed a further or continuing waiver of such term or condition or a waiver of any other term or condition, and any failure of Blue Heron to assert a right or provision under these Terms of Use shall not constitute a waiver of such right or provision.

If any provision of these Terms of Use is held by a court or other tribunal of competent jurisdiction to be invalid, illegal or unenforceable for any reason, such provision shall be eliminated or limited to the minimum extent such that the remaining provisions of the Terms of Use will continue in full force and effect.

Entire Agreement 

These Terms of Use and our Privacy Policy constitute the sole and entire agreement between you and Blue Heron regarding the Website and use thereof and supersede all prior and contemporaneous understandings, agreements, representations and warranties, both written and oral, regarding the Website.
