GOVERNING LAW/ARBITRATION:

You and SD (each individually a “Party” and collectively the “Parties”) agree that any dispute relating to these Terms of Use or the use of the Site will be resolved solely by the means set forth in this section. In the event that any such dispute arises, you agree to first contact SD directly and the Parties agree to make a good faith effort to resolve the dispute. If the matter remains unresolved for sixty (60) days after your initial contact with SD regarding the dispute, the matter will be submitted to binding arbitration under the rules of the American Arbitration Association. Any such arbitration will be conducted in Portland, Maine - USA. The arbitrator(s) involved in settling any such dispute will have authority to grant specific performance and to allocate the costs of arbitration between the Parties as the arbitrator(s) deems equitable. Any such judgments rendered by the arbitrator(s) may be entered in any court having jurisdiction or application may be made to such court for judicial acceptance of any award and an order of enforcement, as the case may be.

BY AGREEING TO THESE TERMS OF USE, YOU HEREBY IRREVOCABLY WAIVE ANY RIGHT YOU MAY HAVE TO A COURT TO A COURT TRIAL (OTHER THAN SMALL CLAIMS COURT AS PROVIDED IN THIS SECTION).

CLASS ACTION WAIVER:

Any dispute resolution proceedings, whether in arbitration or court, will be conducted only on an individual basis and not in a class or representative action or as a named or unnamed member in a class, consolidated, representative or private attorney general legal action. Your access and continued use of the Site or Service signifies your explicit consent to this waiver.

BY AGREEING TO THESE TERMS OF USE, YOU HEREBY IRREVOCABLY WAIVE ANY RIGHT YOU MAY HAVE TO JOIN A CLASS ACTION SUIT AGAINST SD.

SEVERABILITY; WAIVER:

If a court of competent jurisdiction deems any provision of these Terms invalid, the invalidity of such provision will not affect the validity of the remaining provisions of the Terms, which will remain in full force and effect. SD’s failure to strictly enforce any provision of our Terms and/or Policies will not constitute a waiver of any such provision.
