9.1 YOU AGREE THAT THE SOLE AND EXCLUSIVE FORUM AND REMEDY FOR ANY AND ALL DISPUTES AND CLAIMS RELATING IN ANY WAY TO OR ARISING OUT OF THESE TERMS OR YOUR USE OF, PURCHASE OF, OR SUBSCRIPTION TO THE SERVICES SHALL BE FINAL AND BINDING ARBITRATION. Arbitration proceedings shall be administered by the American Arbitration Association in English in accordance with its Commercial Arbitration Rules before a single arbitrator located in New York County, New York, except that, to the extent that either party has in any manner infringed upon or violated or threatened to infringe upon or violate the other party's patent, copyright, trademark or trade secret rights, such other party may seek injunctive or other appropriate relief in any state or federal court in the State of New York, and you consent to exclusive jurisdiction and venue in such courts. Either party may appear in an arbitration proceeding by remote means (e.g., telephone) and may submit documents electronically.  No demand for arbitration may be made after the date when the institution of legal or equitable proceedings based on such claim or dispute would be barred by the applicable statute of limitation or this Agreement. The arbitrator is not authorized to award punitive or other damages not measured by the prevailing party’s actual damages. Each party shall bear its own costs, fees and expenses of arbitration. If costs related to such arbitration are determined to be excessive in a consumer dispute, FPR will pay all arbitration fees and arbitrator compensation in excess of what is deemed reasonable. The arbitrator's award shall be binding and may be entered as a judgment in any court of competent jurisdiction. The arbitration proceedings and arbitrator’s award shall be maintained by the parties as strictly confidential, except as is otherwise required by court order or as is necessary to confirm, vacate or enforce the award and for disclosure in confidence to the parties’ respective attorneys, tax advisors and senior management and to immediately family members of a party who is an individual.

9.2 To the fullest extent permitted by applicable law, NO ARBITRATION OR CLAIM UNDER THESE TERMS OF SERVICE SHALL BE JOINED TO ANY OTHER ARBITRATION OR CLAIM, INCLUDING ANY ARBITRATION OR CLAIM INVOLVING ANY OTHER CURRENT OR FORMER USER OF THE SERVICE, AND NO CLASS ARBITRATION PROCEEDINGS SHALL BE PERMITTED.

You are advised to regularly review the policy. You accept modifications of this Agreement through online acceptance of the terms or through your continued use of any part of the Services following the posting of any such changes or modifications. FPR’s changes to this Agreement will not affect your or FPR’s pre-existing rights or obligations to the extent applying such changes to your or FPR’s pre-existing rights or obligations would render any provisions of this Agreement unenforceable.

11.2 The failure of either party to enforce any term or condition of this Agreement shall not constitute a waiver of either party’s right to enforce each and every term and condition of this Agreement. No breach under this Agreement shall be deemed waived or excused by either party unless such waiver or consent is in writing signed by the party granting such waiver or consent. The waiver by or consent of a party to a breach of any provision of this Agreement shall not operate or be construed as a waiver of or consent to any other or subsequent breach by such other party.

11.3 The parties agree that this Agreement states the entire agreement between the parties with respect to its subject matter and supersedes all prior agreements and representations of the parties, oral or written. This Agreement shall be binding upon and inure to the benefit of the parties’ authorized successors, legal representatives, and authorized assigns.

The parties hereby opt out of the Uniform Computer Information Transaction Act to the fullest extent permitted by law.

11.6 THE PARTIES WAIVE ANY RIGHT TO A JURY TRIAL IN ANY PROCEEDING ARISING OUT OF OR RELATED TO THIS AGREEMENT.
