ALL DISPUTES ARISING OUT OF OR RELATED TO THESE TERMS OF SERVICE OR ANY ASPECT OF THE RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN YOU AND US, WHETHER BASED ON CONTRACT, TORT, STATUTE, FRAUD, MISREPRESENTATION, OR ANY OTHER LEGAL THEORY, WILL BE RESOLVED THROUGH FINAL AND BINDING ARBITRATION BEFORE A NEUTRAL ARBITRATOR INSTEAD OF IN A COURT BY A JUDGE OR JURY, AND YOU AGREE THAT THE COMPANY AND YOU ARE EACH WAIVING THE RIGHT TO SUE IN COURT AND TO HAVE A TRIAL BY A JURY.

The laws of the State of Wyoming and applicable United States federal law, including the Federal Arbitration Action as specified herein, shall govern this Agreement. Except for those disputes that shall be resolved in arbitration or in small claims court pursuant to this section, each party agrees to submit to the personal and exclusive jurisdiction of the courts located in the state of Wyoming, provided that any claims or disputes shall be subject to the arbitration provisions set forth below.
Except for claims for injunctive or equitable relief or claims regarding intellectual property rights (which may be brought, in an individual capacity only, and not on a class-wide or representative basis, in the courts specified above), any dispute between you and Syndicately related in any way to, or arising in any way from, our Services or this Agreement (“Dispute”) shall be finally settled on an individual, non-representative basis in binding arbitration in accordance with the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”) rules for arbitration of consumer-related disputes (available from AAA on its website at www.adr.org), as modified by this Agreement or in accordance with rules on which we may mutually agree; provided, however, that to the extent a Dispute is within the scope of a small claims court’s jurisdiction, either you or Syndicately may commence an action in small claims court, in the county (or equivalent) of your most recent physical address, to resolve the Dispute. Any arbitration will be conducted by a single, neutral arbitrator and shall take place in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA. The arbitrator may award any relief that a court of competent jurisdiction could award, including attorneys’ fees when authorized by law. The arbitral decision may be enforced in any court of competent jurisdiction. You hereby agree that this Agreement evidences a transaction involving interstate commerce, and therefore, the Federal Arbitration Act (“FAA”) applies to this Agreement, including the agreement to arbitrate set forth in this section. We each agree that the FAA, and not state law, shall govern whether a Dispute is subject to arbitration.

Syndicately shall have no liability for any failure or delay resulting from any abnormal or unforeseeable circumstances outside our reasonable control, the consequences of which would have been unavoidable despite all efforts to the contrary, including without limitation governmental action or acts of terrorism, earthquake, fire, flood, or other acts of God, labor conditions, delays or failures caused by problems with another system or network, mechanical breakdown or data-processing failures or where we are bound by other legal obligations.

Failure on our part to demand performance of any provision in these Terms shall not constitute a waiver of any of our rights under these Terms.
