Governing Law, Dispute Resolution, and Venue

This agreement will be governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of the State of Illinois, without giving effect to any conflict of laws and provisions that would require the application of the laws of any other jurisdiction. The United Nations Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods shall not apply to this Agreement.

All domestic (U.S.) disputes arising under or relating to this Agreement shall be resolved by final and binding arbitration conducted before a single arbitrator pursuant to the commercial arbitration rules of Resolute Systems, Inc. that were in force as of April 30, 2008. Notwithstanding the provisions governing domestic dispute arbitration, any dispute arising under this Agreement that involves a dispute between ShortTrack and a person who is neither a citizen nor a resident of the United States, shall, at either party's request, be finally settled under the Rules of Arbitration of the International Chamber of Commerce by one or more arbitrators appointed in accordance with the said Rules, with such arbitration to be conducted in USA.

The administrative expenses, arbitrator fees, and facility charges associated with the arbitration, whether domestic or international, shall be split equally between the parties. Each party shall be solely responsible for its attorney fees, expert witness fees, and other costs, fees, and expenses.

The arbitrator shall render a naked award. Judgment on any arbitral award under this Agreement may be entered in any court of competent jurisdiction. It is the intent of the parties that neither the award nor any resulting judgment has res judicata (claim preclusion) or collateral estoppel (issue preclusion) effects except as between the parties themselves.

The arbitration undertaking in this Agreement shall be governed by, construed, and interpreted in accordance with the Federal Arbitration Act, 9 U.S.C. 1 et seq. and, in the case of arbitrations involving one or more non-U.S. parties, by the Convention on the Recognition and Enforcement of Foreign Arbitral Awards and the U.S. legislation implementing the same, 9 U.S.C. 201 et seq.

To the extent that the Arbitration provisions of this Agreement do not apply, this Agreement will be subject to the exclusive jurisdiction of the state and federal courts serving Cook County, Illinois, United States, and the parties agree and submit to the personal and exclusive jurisdiction and venue of these courts, except that nothing will prohibit ShortTrack from instituting an action in any court of competent jurisdiction to obtain injunctive relief or protect or enforce its intellectual property rights.

Entire Agreement and Assignment

This Agreement, which incorporates the ShortTrack Privacy Policy, constitutes the entire agreement between the parties with respect to the subject matter hereof and supersedes and replaces all prior or contemporaneous understandings or agreements, written or oral, regarding such subject matter. Any waiver of any provision of this Agreement will be effective only if in writing and signed by ShortTrack.

You may not assign or transfer any of your rights or obligations under this Agreement to a third party without the prior written consent of ShortTrack. ShortTrack may freely assign this Agreement. Any attempted assignment or transfer in violation of the foregoing will be void from the beginning.
