MiscellaneousGoverning Law; Limitations; Venue. Unless otherwise required by a mandatory law of a member state of the European Union or any other jurisdiction, these Agreements are subject to the law of the State of South Carolina, United States, without regard to choice or conflicts of law principles. Further, you and VP INC agree to the exclusive jurisdiction of the state and federal courts in South Carolina to resolve any dispute, claim or controversy that arises in connection with these Agreements.
If you are a United States user, the following mandatory arbitration provisions also apply to you:
You and VP INC agree that any dispute, claim or controversy arising out of or relating in any way to the VP INC Service or your use thereof, including our Agreements, shall be determined by mandatory binding arbitration. You agree that the U.S. Federal Arbitration Act governs the interpretation and enforcement of this provision, and that you and VP INC are each waiving the right to a trial by jury and the right to participate in a class or multi-party action. This arbitration provision shall survive termination of these Agreements and the termination of your VP INC account. The arbitration will be governed by the Commercial Arbitration Rules and the Supplementary Procedures for Consumer Related Disputes of the American Arbitration Association (the “AAA Rules”), as modified by these Agreements, and as administered by the AAA. You and VP INC agree that these Agreements involve interstate commerce and are subject to the Federal Arbitration Act.
You and VP INC agree that (a) any claims seeking to enforce, protect, or determine the validity or ownership of any intellectual property rights of VP INC, and (b) any claims related to allegations of theft, piracy or unauthorized use of the VP INC products, services, and Information are NOT subject to mandatory arbitration. Instead, you and VP INC agree that these claims (including but not limited to claims for injunctive or equitable relief) shall be exclusively decided by courts of competent jurisdiction in Charleston, South Carolina, and that applicable South Carolina and/or Federal law shall govern, without regard to choice of law principles, and further you consent and submit to the personal jurisdiction of those courts with respect to any such dispute.
YOU AND VP INC AGREE THAT EACH MAY BRING CLAIMS AGAINST THE OTHER ONLY IN YOUR OR ITS INDIVIDUAL CAPACITY, AND NOT AS A CLASS MEMBER OR IN ANY REPRESENTATIVE CAPACITY OR PROCEEDING. Further, no arbitrator shall consolidate any other person’s claims with your claims, and may not otherwise preside over any form of a multi-party or class proceeding. If this specific provision is found to be unenforceable in any way, then the entirety of this arbitration section shall be null and void. The arbitrator may not award declaratory or injunctive relief.
Any arbitration must be commenced by filing a demand for arbitration with the AAA within ONE (1) YEAR after the date the party asserting the claim first knows or reasonably should know of the act, omission or default giving rise to the claim; and there shall be no right to any remedy for any claim not asserted within that time period. If applicable law prohibits a one-year limitations period for asserting claims, any claim must be asserted within the shortest time period permitted by applicable law.
Severability. If any provision of this Agreement is found to be unlawful or unenforceable in any respect, the court shall reform such provision so as to render it enforceable (or, if it is not possible to reform such provision so as to make it enforceable, then delete such provision); and, as so reformed or modified, fully enforce this Agreement.
Notices. Official correspondence must be sent via certified mail to:
VP Autoparts, INC
