We may include links to third-party sites or services, or information about third-party products or services, which are typically subject to service terms and policies that differ from ours. Therefore, you should review the terms of use and privacy policies of all sites and services you link to from or are referred to by our Service. We do not endorse or take responsibility for these third party offerings, nor do we vet or take responsibility for third-party sites, services or products or for the postings or communications of other users.

15.  Governing Law/Waiver of Injunctive Relief.

15.1.  This Agreement and all aspects of the Service will be governed by and construed in accordance with the internal laws of the U.S. and the Commonwealth of Massachusetts governing contracts entered into and to be fully performed in Massachusetts (thus, without regard to conflict of laws provisions) regardless of your location. With respect to any disputes or claims not subject to informal dispute resolution or arbitration (as set forth below), you agree not to commence or prosecute any action in connection therewith other than in the state or federal courts located in Boston, Massachusetts, and you hereby consent to, and waive all defenses of lack of personal jurisdiction and forum non conveniens with respect to, venue and jurisdiction in the state and federal courts located in Boston, Massachusetts.

15.2.  You acknowledge that the rights granted and obligations made hereunder to B AUTHENTIC INC are of a unique and irreplaceable nature, the loss of which will irreparably harm B AUTHENTIC INC and which cannot be replaced by monetary damages alone, so that B AUTHENTIC INC will be entitled to injunctive or other equitable relief (without the obligations of posting any bond or surety) in the event of any breach or anticipatory breach by you. You irrevocably waive all rights to seek injunctive or other equitable relief and agree to limit your claims to claims for monetary damages (if any).

15.3.  To expedite resolution and control the cost of any dispute, controversy or claim related to this Agreement ("Dispute"), you and B AUTHENTIC INC agree to first attempt to negotiate any Dispute (except those Disputes expressly provided below) informally for at least thirty (30) days before initiating any arbitration or court proceeding. Such informal negotiations commence upon written notice from one person to the other. You will send your notice to B AUTHENTIC INC, 52 Williamsburg Rd, Marlborough, CT 06447.

15.4.  Mandatory Arbitration. If you and B AUTHENTIC INC are unable to resolve a Dispute through informal negotiations within 30 days, either you or B AUTHENTIC INC may elect to have the Dispute (except those Disputes expressly excluded below) finally and exclusively resolved by binding arbitration. Any election to arbitrate by one party will be final and binding on the other. YOU UNDERSTAND THAT ABSENT THIS PROVISION, YOU WOULD HAVE THE RIGHT TO SUE IN COURT AND HAVE A JURY TRIAL. The arbitration will be commenced and conducted under the Streamlined Arbitration Rules and Procedures (the “Rules”) of JAMS, which is available at the JAMS website www.jamsadr.com. The determination of whether a Dispute is subject to arbitration will be governed by the Federal Arbitration Act and determined by a court rather than an arbitrator. Your arbitration fees and your share of arbitrator compensation will be governed by the Rules. The arbitration may be conducted in person, through the submission of documents, by phone or online. The arbitrator will make a decision in writing, but need not provide a statement of reasons unless requested by a party. The arbitrator must follow applicable law, and any award may be challenged if the arbitrator fails to do so.

15.5.  Notwithstanding the above, you and B AUTHENTIC INC agree that arbitration will be limited to the Dispute between B AUTHENTIC INC and you individually. To the full extent permitted by law, (a) no arbitration will be joined with any other; (b) there is no right or authority for any Dispute to be arbitrated on a class-action basis or to utilize class action procedures; and (c) there is no right or authority for any Dispute to be brought in a purported representative capacity on behalf of the general public or any other persons.

15.6.  You and B AUTHENTIC INC agree that the following Disputes are not subject to the above provisions concerning informal negotiations and binding arbitration: (a) any Disputes seeking to enforce or protect, or concerning the validity of, any of your or B AUTHENTIC INC’s intellectual property rights; (b) any Dispute related to, or arising from, allegations of theft, piracy, invasion of privacy or unauthorized use; and (c) any claim for injunctive relief or to compel arbitration, stay proceedings pending arbitration, or to confirm, modify, vacate or enter judgment on the award entered by the arbitrator.

16.  Waiver/Severability.

16.1.  The failure of B AUTHENTIC INC to require or enforce strict performance by you of any provision of this Agreement or to exercise any right under any provision of this Agreement will not be construed as a waiver or relinquishment of B AUTHENTIC INC’s right to assert or rely upon any such provision or right in that or any other instance.

16.2.  You and B AUTHENTIC INC agree that if any portion of this Agreement, except any portion of Section 15.6, is found illegal or unenforceable, in whole or in part by any court of competent jurisdiction, such provision will, as to such jurisdiction, be ineffective to the extent of such determination of invalidity or unenforceability without affecting the validity or enforceability thereof in any other manner or jurisdiction and without affecting the remaining provisions of this Agreement, which will continue to be in full force and effect. If Section 15.6 is found to be illegal or unenforceable then neither you nor B AUTHENTIC INC will elect to arbitrate any Dispute falling within that portion of Section 15.6.4 found to be illegal or unenforceable and such Dispute will be decided by a court of competent jurisdiction within Boston, Massachusetts, and you and B AUTHENTIC INC agree to submit to the personal jurisdiction of that court.

17.  Term and Termination. This Agreement will remain in effect as long as your account is up-to-date and you remain in compliance with the terms hereof, unless it has been voluntarily suspended or terminated by you or B AUTHENTIC INC. You may terminate this Agreement by destroying all Service-related materials obtained from the Service, B AUTHENTIC INC or any other web site or source. The privileges granted to you under this Agreement will terminate immediately and automatically without notice from B AUTHENTIC INC if, in our sole discretion, you fail to comply with any term or provision of this Agreement or for any reason in B AUTHENTIC INC’s sole discretion.  Following the termination of this Agreement, your account(s), or the Service, B AUTHENTIC INC shall retain all rights to the Submissions pursuant to this Agreement. Unless terminated by B AUTHENTIC INC for breach or other good cause, you will be entitled to a pro rata refund of any amounts paid by you for periods following termination.

18.  Miscellaneous. B AUTHENTIC INC operates and controls the Service from its offices in the United States. B AUTHENTIC INC makes no representation that the Service is appropriate, lawful or available in other locations. The information provided on the Service is not intended for distribution to or use by any person or entity in any jurisdiction or country where such distribution or use would be contrary to law or regulation or which would subject B AUTHENTIC INC to any registration requirement within such jurisdiction or country. Accordingly, those persons who choose to access the Service from other locations do so on their own initiative and are solely responsible for compliance with local laws, if and to the extent local laws are applicable.

Upon B AUTHENTIC INC’s request, you will furnish B AUTHENTIC INC with any documentation, substantiation or releases necessary to verify your compliance with this Agreement. You agree that this Agreement will not be construed against B AUTHENTIC INC by virtue of having drafted it. You hereby waive any and all defenses you may have based on the electronic form of this Agreement and the lack of signing by the parties hereto to execute this Agreement.

19.  Statute of Limitations. You and B AUTHENTIC INC both agree that regardless of any statute or law to the contrary, any claim or cause of action arising out of or related to use of the Service or this Agreement (including the Privacy Policy) must be filed within ONE (1) YEAR after such claim or cause of action arose (or, if longer, within the shortest statute of limitations for such claim which the parties may establish by agreement) or the claim will be forever barred.
