Arbitration proceedings shall by conducted in New York City, New York in the English language, and, at the request of either party, result in a written statement of the facts and legal reasoning supporting the decision of the arbitrator(s). The costs of arbitration shall be borne equally by the parties. Judgement on the award rendered by the arbitrator(s) may be entered in any court having jurisdiction thereof. Notwithstanding the foregoing, OAC shall have the sole option to seek judicial relief for any claim, cause of action, or dispute (regardless of theory) arising out of or relating to these Terms in the federal courts of the United States located in the State of New York or the courts of the State of New York. If OAC seeks such judicial relief, you and OAC agree to submit to the personal jurisdiction of such courts to the exclusion of any other, and agree to waive any and all objections to the exercise of jurisdiction over the parties by such courts and to venue in such courts. Each party hereto irrevocably waives its rights to a trial by jury.
Legal Expenses. In the event that any action, suit, or other legal or administrative proceeding arising out of or relating to these Terms is instituted or commenced by either party against the other party, the prevailing party shall be entitled, in addition to any other rights or remedies it may have, to recover its expenses relating to such proceeding from the non-prevailing party, including reasonable attorneys’ fees, court costs, and arbitration fees and expenses.
Waiver and Severability of Terms. The failure of OAC or you to exercise or enforce any right or provision of these Terms shall not constitute a waiver of such right or provision. If any provision of these Terms is found by a court of competent jurisdiction to be invalid, the parties nevertheless agree that the court should endeavor to give effect to the parties’ intentions as reflected in the provision, and the other provisions of these Terms remain in full force and effect.
Statute of Limitations. Each party agrees that regardless of any statute or law to the contrary, any claim or cause of action arising out of or related to use of Site or to these Terms must be filed within one (1) year after such claim or cause of action arose or be forever barred.
