9. Dispute Resolution. Mindful of the high cost of litigation, not only in dollars but also in time and energy, both you and us agree to the following dispute resolution procedure: In the event of any controversy, claim, action or dispute arising out of or related to any transaction conducted on the Site, or the breach, enforcement, interpretation, or validity of these Terms of Use (“Dispute”), the party asserting the Dispute shall first try in good faith to settle such Dispute by providing written notice to the other party (by first class mail or last known e-mail) describing the facts and circumstances (including any relevant documentation) of the Dispute and allowing the receiving party 30 days in which to respond to or settle the Dispute. Notice shall be sent: (a) to IANGEL at International Action Network for Gender Equity & Law, 425 Market Street, 26th Floor, San Francisco, CA 94105, or (b) to you at your last known e-mail address. Both you and us agree that this Dispute resolution procedure is a condition precedent which must be satisfied prior to initiating any litigation or filing any claim against the other party. Providing the foregoing is satisfied, and has not resolved the issue, any Dispute relating in any way to your visit to the Site shall be submitted to confidential arbitration in San Francisco, California, except that to the extent you have in any manner violated or threatened to violate our intellectual property rights, we may seek injunctive or other appropriate relief in any state or federal court in the State of California. You hereby irrevocably 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 of California and arbitration in San Francisco, California. Arbitration under these Terms of Use shall be conducted pursuant to the Commercial Arbitration Rules then prevailing at the American Arbitration Association. The arbitrator’s award shall be final and binding and may be entered as a judgment in any court of competent jurisdiction. To the fullest extent permitted by applicable law, no arbitration under this agreement shall be joined to an arbitration involving any other party subject to this agreement, whether through class action proceedings or otherwise. You agree that regardless of any statute or law to the contrary, any claim or cause of action you may have arising out of or related to use of the Site or the Terms of Use must be filed within one (1) year after such claim or cause of action arose or such claim or cause of action is permanently waived and barred.
10. General Terms. IANGEL’s failure to enforce any provision of these Terms of Use will not be construed as a waiver of any provision or right. Waiver by either party of a breach of any provision of these Terms of Use or the failure by either party to exercise any right hereunder shall not operate or be construed as a waiver of any subsequent breach of that right or as a waiver of any other right. IANGEL will not be liable in any amount for failure to perform any obligation under these Terms of Use if such failure is beyond the reasonable control of IANGEL including, without limitation, outages of the Internet or connections thereto, disruptions in the server on which the Site is located, communications outages, earthquake, fire, flood, war, or act of God; or any acts of governmental bodies or authorities. If a portion of these Terms of Use is held unenforceable, the unenforceable portion will be construed in accordance with applicable law as nearly as possible to reflect the original intentions of the parties, and the remainder of the provisions will remain in full force and effect. You agree that there are no third party beneficiaries to these Terms of Use. These Terms of Use constitute the entire agreement between you and IANGEL with respect to the Site and supersede all prior agreements or previous discussions (written or oral) between you and IANGEL.
