Before accepting a purchase we may also request additional information from you.

14. Governing Law, Arbitration

Any disputes between the parties arising out of or relating to the Agreement (“Disputes”) will be governed by the Federal Arbitration Act, applicable federal law and Florida law regardless of your location and notwithstanding of any conflicts of law principles. Except for Disputes relating to intellectual property rights, any Disputes will be resolved exclusively by final and binding arbitration under the rules and auspices of the American Arbitration Association, in English, with a written decision stating legal reasoning issued by the arbitrator(s) at either party’s request, and with arbitration costs and reasonable documented attorneys’ costs of both parties to be borne by the party that ultimately loses.
