Jurisdictional issues

Roadmap.org makes no representation that the website operates (or is legally permitted to operate) in all geographic areas or that the website is appropriate or available for use in other locations.  Accessing the website from territories where the website or any content or functionality of the website or portion thereof is illegal is expressly prohibited.  If you choose to access the website, you agree and acknowledge that you do so on your own initiative and at your own risk, and that you are solely responsible for compliance with all applicable laws.  The website is operated from the United States.  If you are located outside of the United States and choose to use the website or provide your information to us, your information will be transferred, processed, and stored in the United States.  U.S. privacy laws may not be as protective as those in your jurisdiction.  Your agreement to the terms of this Agreement followed by your submission of your information in connection with the website represents your agreement to this practice.  If you do not want your information transferred to or processed or stored in the United States, you should not use the website.


DISPUTE RESOLUTION/GOVERNING LAW

This Agreement shall be governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of the State of California, excluding that body of law relating to conflict of laws.  For any dispute you have with Roadmap.org, you agree to first contact us and attempt to resolve the dispute with us informally.  If Roadmap.org has not been able to resolve the dispute with you informally, we each agree that any controversy or claim arising out of or relating to this Agreement, or the breach thereof, will be settled by binding arbitration by the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”) under the Commercial Arbitration Rules and Supplementary Procedures for Consumer Related Disputes then in effect for the AAA, except as provided herein.  The arbitration shall be a confidential proceeding, closed to the general public.  The arbitration will take place in San Francisco, California.  Each party will be responsible for paying any AAA filing, administrative, and arbitrator fees.  The decision rendered by the arbitrator will be binding upon the parties hereto, and any judgment upon the award rendered by the arbitrator may be entered in any court having jurisdiction thereof.  The parties consent to the jurisdiction of all federal and state courts in California without regard to California’s conflict of laws principles AND WILL SPECIFICALLY NOT BE GOVERNED BY THE UNITED NATIONS CONVENTIONS ON CONTRACTS FOR THE INTERNATIONAL SALE OF GOODS, IF OTHERWISE APPLICABLE.

Venue will lie exclusively in San Francisco, California.  For the sake of clarity, nothing in this paragraph shall affect Roadmap.org’s ability to seek from a court injunctive or equitable relief at any time.

If any arbitration or other proceeding is brought to enforce or interpret this Agreement or matters relating to it, the substantially prevailing party, as determined by the arbitrator’s award, will be entitled to recover reasonable attorneys’ fees and other costs and expenses incurred in such arbitration or proceeding from the other party, in addition to any other relief to which such prevailing party is entitled; provided that in no event will the arbitrator have the authority to award punitive damages.

ALL CLAIMS MUST BE BROUGHT IN THE PARTIES’ INDIVIDUAL CAPACITY, AND NOT AS A PLAINTIFF OR CLASS MEMBER IN ANY PURPORTED CLASS OR REPRESENTATIVE PROCEEDING, AND, UNLESS WE AGREE OTHERWISE, THE ARBITRATOR MAY NOT CONSOLIDATE MORE THAN ONE PERSON’S CLAIMS.  YOU AGREE THAT, BY ENTERING INTO THESE TERMS, YOU AND ROADMAP.ORG ARE EACH WAIVING THE RIGHT TO TRIAL BY JURY OR TO PARTICIPATE IN A CLASS ACTION.


MISCELLANEOUS

If any provision of this Agreement is found to be unlawful, void, or for any reason unenforceable, then that provision shall be deemed severable from this Agreement and shall not affect the validity and enforceability of any remaining provisions.  This is the entire Agreement between you and us relating to the subject matter herein and supersedes any and all prior or contemporaneous written or oral agreements between you and us with respect to such subject matter.  This Agreement may not be changed, waived or modified except by Roadmap.org as provided herein or otherwise by written instrumentsigned by Roadmap.org.  Neither this Agreement nor any right, obligation, or remedy hereunder is assignable, transferable, delegable, or sublicensable by you except with Roadmap.org’s prior written consent, and any attempted assignment, transfer, delegation, or sublicense shall be null and void.  Roadmap.org may assign, transfer, or delegate this Agreement or any right or obligation or remedy hereunder in its sole discretion.  No waiver by either party of any breach or default hereunder shall be deemed to be a waiver of any preceding or subsequent breach or default.  Any heading, caption, or section title contained in this Agreement is inserted only as a matter of convenience and in no way defines or explains any section or provision hereof.
