13. Dispute Resolution and Arbitration

13.1 Generally. In the interest of resolving disputes between You and conservativevoice.org in the most expedient and cost effective manner, You and conservativevoice.org agree that any and all disputes arising in connection with this Agreement shall be resolved by binding arbitration. Arbitration is more informal than a lawsuit in court. Arbitration uses a neutral arbitrator instead of a judge or jury, may allow for more limited discovery than in court, and can be subject to very limited review by courts. Arbitrators can award the same damages and relief that a court can award. Our agreement to arbitrate disputes includes, but is not limited to all claims arising out of or relating to any aspect of these Terms, whether based in contract, tort, statute, fraud, misrepresentation or any other legal theory, and regardless of whether the claims arise during or after the termination of these Terms. You understand and agree that, by entering into these Terms, You and conservativevoice.org are each waiving the right to a trial by jury or to participate in a class action.

13.2 Notwithstanding subsection (a), we both agree that nothing herein shall be deemed to waive, preclude, or otherwise limit either of our right to (i) bring an individual action in small claims court, (ii) pursue enforcement actions through applicable federal, state, or local agencies where such actions are available, (iii) seek injunctive relief in a court of law, or (iv) to file suit in a court of law to address intellectual property infringement claims.

13.3 Arbitrator. Any arbitration between You and conservativevoice.org will be governed by the Commercial Dispute Resolution Procedures and the Supplementary Procedures for Consumer Related Disputes (collectively, "AAA Rules") of the American Arbitration Association ("AAA"), as modified by these Terms, and will be administered by the AAA. The AAA Rules and filing forms are available online at www.adr.org, by calling the AAA at 1-800-778-7879, or by contacting conservativevoice.org.

13.4 Notice; Process. A party who intends to seek arbitration must first send a written notice of the dispute to the other, by certified mail or Federal Express (signature required), or in the event that we do not have a physical address on file for You, by electronic mail ("Notice"). conservativevoice.org's address for Notice is: conservativevoice.org Attention: Counsel, , . The Notice must (a) describe the nature and basis of the claim or dispute; and (b) set forth the specific relief sought ("Demand"). We agree to use good faith efforts to resolve the claim directly, but if we do not reach an agreement to do so within 30 days after the Notice is received, You or conservativevoice.org may commence an arbitration proceeding. During the arbitration, the amount of any settlement offer made by You or conservativevoice.org shall not be disclosed to the arbitrator until after the arbitrator makes a final decision and award, if any; provided that if our dispute is finally resolved through arbitration in your favor, conservativevoice.org shall pay you the greater of (i) the amount awarded by the arbitrator, if any, and (ii) the greatest amount offered by conservativevoice.org in settlement of the dispute prior to the arbitrator's award.

13.5 Fees. In the event that you commence arbitration in accordance with these Terms, conservativevoice.org will reimburse You for your payment of the filing fee, unless your claim is for greater than $10,000, in which case the payment of any fees shall be decided by the AAA Rules. Any arbitration hearings will take place at a location to be agreed upon in Kansas City, Missouri, provided that if the claim is for $10,000 or less, You may choose whether the arbitration will be conducted solely on the basis of documents submitted to the arbitrator, through a non-appearance based telephonic hearing, or by an in-person hearing as established by the AAA Rules. If the arbitrator finds that either the substance of your claim or the relief sought in the Demand is frivolous or brought for an improper purpose (as measured by the standards set forth in Federal Rule of Civil Procedure 11(b)), then the payment of all fees will be governed by the AAA Rules. In such case, You agree to reimburse conservativevoice.org for all monies previously disbursed by it that are otherwise your obligation to pay under the AAA Rules. Regardless of the manner in which the arbitration is conducted, the arbitrator shall issue a reasoned written decision sufficient to explain the essential findings and conclusions on which the decision and award, if any, are based. The arbitrator may make rulings and resolve disputes as to the payment and reimbursement of fees or expenses at any time during the proceeding and upon request from either party made within 14 days of the arbitrator's ruling on the merits.

13.6 No class actions. YOU AND THAT EACH MAY BRING CLAIMS AGAINST THE OTHER ONLY IN YOUR OR ITS INDIVIDUAL CAPACITY, AND NOT AS A PLAINTIFF OR CLASS MEMBER IN ANY PURPORTED CLASS OR REPRESENTATIVE PROCEEDING. Further, unless both You and conservativevoice.org agree otherwise, the arbitrator may not consolidate more than one person's claims, and may not otherwise preside over any form of a representative or class proceeding.

13.7 Modifications. In the event that conservativevoice.org makes any future change to this arbitration provision (other than a change to the conservativevoice.org 's address for Notice), You may reject any such change by sending us written notice within 30 days of the change to conservativevoice.org 's address for Notice, in which case your use of the Service shall be immediately terminated and this arbitration provision, as in effect immediately prior to the amendments you reject shall survive.

13.8 Enforceability. If only Subsection 13.6 of this Section 13 or the entirety of this Section 13 is found to be unenforceable, then the entirety of this Section 13 shall be null and void and, in such case, the parties agree that the exclusive jurisdiction and venue described in Sections 14.3 and 14.4 shall govern any action arising out of or related to these Terms.

14. Miscellaneous.

14.1 Notice. conservativevoice.org may provide You with notices, including those regarding changes to this Agreement, by posting the notice on conservativevoice.org. Notice will be deemed given twenty-four hours after posting.

14.2 Waiver. The failure of conservativevoice.org to exercise or enforce any right or provision of this Agreement will not constitute a waiver of such right or provision. Any waiver of any provision of this Agreement will be effective only if in writing and signed by conservativevoice.org.

14.3 Governing Law and Jurisdiction: This Agreement shall be interpreted and enforced in all respects under the laws of the State of Missouri, USA as applicable to contracts to be performed entirely within the State of Missouri, USA. Any litigation arising out of this Agreement will be brought solely and exclusively in the state or federal courts located in Kansas City, Missouri, and the parties agree that jurisdiction and venue properly lie in such courts and waive any claim that a proceeding in any such court has been brought in an inconvenient forum. The United Nations Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods shall not apply to this Agreement.

14.4 Severability. If any provision of this Agreement is held to be unlawful, void, or for any reason unenforceable, then that provision will be limited or eliminated from this Agreement to the minimum extent necessary and will not affect the validity and enforceability of any remaining provisions.

14.5 Assignment. This Agreement, and any rights and licenses granted hereunder, may not be transferred or assigned by You, but may be assigned by conservativevoice.org without restriction. Any assignment attempted to be made in violation of this Agreement shall be void.

14.6 Survival. Upon termination of this Agreement, any provision which, by its nature or express terms should survive, will survive such termination or expiration.

14.7 Headings. The heading references herein are for convenience purposes only, do not constitute a part of the terms of this Agreement, and will not be deemed to limit or affect any of the provisions hereof.

14.8 Entire Agreement. This Agreement constitutes the entire agreement between You and conservativevoice.org relating to the subject matter herein and will not be modified except in writing, signed by both parties.

14.9 Claims. YOU AGREE THAT ANY CAUSE OF ACTION ARISING OUT OF OR RELATED TO THIS AGREEMENT AND THE SERVICE, INCLUDING THE INSTALLATION OF THE EMAIL PROFILE MUST COMMENCE WITHIN ONE (1) YEAR AFTER THE CAUSE OF ACTION ACCRUES. OTHERWISE, SUCH CAUSE OF ACTION IS PERMANENTLY BARRED.
