Arbitration Any claim, controversy dispute or disagreement between you and ACBL which is in any way related to these Terms, regardless of the facts or the legal theories which may be involved, shall be resolved by binding arbitration before the American Arbitration ("AAA") by a single arbitrator in accordance with the Commercial Rules of the AAA in effect at the time the arbitration proceeding is initiated; provided, however, that the terms of this paragraph shall not preclude any party hereto from seeking, or a court of competent jurisdiction from granting, a preliminary injunction or a temporary restraining order. Any court action seeking a preliminary injunction or a temporary restraining order shall be filed in a court of competent jurisdiction in the State of Mississippi; however, claims for damages and other relief shall be resolved by arbitration in accordance with this paragraph. The parties shall endeavor to mutually agree on the appointment of an arbitrator, but if such agreement cannot be reached within thirty (30) days following the date the demand for arbitration has been made, AAA's arbitrator appointment procedures shall be utilized. Arbitration hearings shall be held at AAA's offices in Atlanta, Georgia, or at such other location at which the parties may agree in writing. Civil discovery may be taken in such arbitration as provided in the Mississippi Rules of Civil Procedure, and the arbitrator selected shall have the power to control the timing, scope and manner of taking of discovery and shall have the same powers to enforce the party's respective duties concerning discovery as would a Mississippi court overseeing a similar matter, including, but not limited to, the impositions of sanctions. The arbitrator shall have the power to grant all remedies provided by Mississippi law, except that punitive or treble damages shall not be awarded. The arbitrator shall prepare in writing an award which includes the legal and factual reasons for the decision. The parties shall equally divide the costs of the arbitration, but the arbitrator may assess all such costs to the non-prevailing party in the arbitration award.

THE PARTIES HERETO EXPRESSLY AGREE TO WAIVE THEIR CONSTITUTIONAL RIGHT TO HAVE DISPUTES BETWEEN THEM RESOLVED IN COURT AND ARE INSTEAD ACCEPTING THE USE OF ARBITRATION.

Third Party Sites and Content This Service contains links to and media or other content from Internet sites that other third parties own or operate. Your use of each of those sites and services is subject to third party terms and conditions. We have no control over third party sites and are not responsible for any changes to or content on them. Our inclusion of any content on our sites is not an endorsement of that material or link or the companies that own or operate the material or linked sites.

General These Terms of Service constitutes the entire agreement between you and ACBL with respect to the Service, and supersedes all previous written or oral agreements. If any part of these Terms of Service is determined to be invalid or unenforceable pursuant to applicable law, then the invalid or unenforceable provision will be deemed superseded by a valid, enforceable provision that most closely matches the intent of the original provision and the remainder of the Terms of Service will continue in effect. Some states do not allow exclusion of implied warranties or limitation of liability for incidental or consequential damages, so the above limitations or exclusions may not apply to you. In such states, our liability and that of our third party content providers and their respective agents will be limited to the greatest extent permitted by law.
