If you are a resident of the United States, arbitration will take place and be held in Charlotte, North Carolina. For residents outside the United States, arbitration shall be initiated in Charlotte, North Carolina, United States of America, and you and GoCollect agree to submit to the personal jurisdiction of the federal or state courts located there, in order to compel arbitration, stay proceedings pending arbitration or confirm, modify, vacate or enter judgment on the award entered by the arbitrator.
PROCEEDINGS TO RESOLVE OR LITIGATE A DISPUTE IN ANY FORUM WILL BE CONDUCTED ON AN INDIVIDUAL BASIS. Neither you nor GoCollect will seek to have a dispute heard as a class action, private attorney general action or in any other proceeding in which either party acts or proposes to act in a representative capacity. No arbitration or proceeding can be combined with another without the prior written consent of all parties to the arbitration or proceeding. If the class action waiver is found to be illegal or unenforceable as to all or some parts of a dispute, those parts will be severed and proceed in a court of law, with the remaining parts proceeding in arbitration.
12.8 Enforcement: GoCollect reserves the right to take steps that we believe are reasonably necessary or appropriate to enforce and/or verify compliance with any part of the Terms. You agree that we have the right, without liability to you, to disclose any registration data and/or account information to law enforcement authorities, government officials, and/or a third party, as we believe is reasonably necessary or appropriate to enforce and/or verify compliance with any part of the Terms (including but not limited to our right to cooperate with any legal process relating to your use of the Sites and Services and/or a third-party claim that your use of the Sites and Services is unlawful and/or infringes such third party's rights).
12.9 Entire Agreement: This agreement constitutes the entire agreement between you and GoCollect with respect to the Sites and Services and supersedes all prior or contemporaneous agreements, terms or conditions, oral or written, between you and GoCollect.
12.10 Severability: If any provision of the Terms shall be unlawful, void or for any reason unenforceable, then that provision shall be deemed severable from the Terms and shall not affect the validity and enforceability of any remaining provisions.
12.11 Survival: The provisions of the Terms, which by their nature should survive the termination of the Terms, shall survive such termination.
12.12 Waiver: No waiver of any provision of the Terms by GoCollect shall be deemed a further or continuing waiver of such provision or any other provision. GoCollect’s failure to assert any right or provision under the Terms shall not constitute a waiver of such right or provision.
12.13 Equitable Remedies: You acknowledge that the rights granted and obligations made under these Terms and Conditions to GoCollect are of a unique and irreplaceable nature, the loss of which shall irreparably harm GoCollect and which cannot be replaced by monetary damages alone so that GoCollect shall be entitled to injunctive or other equitable relief (without the obligations of posting any bond or surety or proof of damages) in the event of any breach or anticipatory breach by you.
You irrevocably waive all rights to seek injunctive or other equitable relief, or to enjoin or restrain the operation of the Sites and Services, exploitation of any advertising or other materials issued in connection therewith, or exploitation of the Sites and Services or any content or other material used or displayed through the Sites and Services and agree to limit your claims to claims for monetary damages, limited by Section 7 (if any).
12.14 Force Majeure: GoCollect shall not be liable for any delay or failure to perform resulting from causes outside the reasonable control of GoCollect, including without limitation any failure to perform hereunder due to unforeseen circumstances or cause beyond GoCollect’s control such as acts of God, war, terrorism, riots, embargoes, acts of civil or military authorities, fire, floods, accidents, strikes, or shortages of transportation facilities, fuel, energy, labor or materials.
