12. Limited Liability
To the maximum extent permitted by applicable laws, you agree that The Company, its affiliates, licensors, suppliers, agents and their respective officers, directors, employees, and agents will not be liable for any personal injury or for any direct, indirect, consequential or special damages, including lost profits or otherwise, arising out of or relating in any way to this agreement, your use of the websites or your purchase or use of the services.
The cumulative liability of The Company and its licensors to you for all claims arising from or relating to this agreement, your use of the websites or your purchase or use of products or services, including, without limitation, any cause of action sounding in contract, tort, or strict liability, will not exceed the total amount paid to The Company by you for the specific product or service in the individual transaction giving rise to such liability. This limitation of liability is intended to apply without regard to whether other provisions of this agreement have been breached or have proven ineffective or if a remedy fails of its essential purpose. Some jurisdictions do not allow for limited liability or exclusion of implied warranties, so not all of the above limitations may apply to you. You acknowledge and understand that the disclaimers, exclusions and limitations of liability set forth herein form an essential basis of the agreement between the parties hereto, that the parties have relied upon such disclaimers, exclusions and limitations of liability, and that absent such disclaimers, exclusions and limitations of liability, the terms and conditions of this agreement would be substantially different.

14. Governing Law
This Agreement will be governed by and interpreted in accordance with the laws of the State of Michigan without regard to any conflict of laws principles.
15. Dispute Resolution
You and The Company agree to resolve any disputes between us in accordance with this Section 15. If you believe that The Company has not adhered to this Agreement or you have any dispute with The Company, please contact The Company using the contact information provided below. We will do our best to address your concerns and we will attempt to resolve any disputes with you amicably. Except as provided herein, you and The Company agree that we will resolve any disputes between us that we cannot resolve as provided above through binding and final arbitration instead of through court proceedings. All controversies, claims, counterclaims, or other disputes arising between you and The Company relating to the Products, Services or this Agreement (each a "Claim") shall be submitted for binding arbitration in accordance with the rules of the American Arbitration Association ("AAA"). The arbitration will be heard and determined by a single arbitrator. The arbitrator's decision in any such arbitration will be final and binding upon the parties and may be enforced in any court of competent jurisdiction. The parties agree that the arbitration will be kept confidential and that the existence of the proceeding and any element of it (including, without limitation, any pleadings, briefs, documents, or other evidence submitted or exchanged and any testimony or other oral submissions and awards) will not be disclosed beyond the arbitration proceedings, except as may lawfully be required in judicial proceedings relating to the arbitration or by applicable disclosure rules and regulations of securities regulatory authorities or other governmental agencies.
For any claim where the total amount of the award sought is $10,000 or less, the AAA, you and The Company must abide by the following rules: (a) the arbitration will be conducted solely based on written submissions; and (b) the arbitration will not involve any personal appearance by the parties or witnesses unless otherwise mutually agreed by the parties. If the claim exceeds $10,000, the right to a hearing will be determined by the AAA rules, and the hearing (if any) must take place in Lenawee County, Michigan.
If you demonstrate that the costs of arbitration will be prohibitive as compared to the costs of litigation, The Company will pay as much of the administrative costs and arbitrator's fees required for the arbitration as the arbitrator deems necessary to prevent the cost of the arbitration from being prohibitive. In the final award, the arbitrator may apportion the costs of arbitration and the compensation of the arbitrator among the parties in such amounts as the arbitrator deems appropriate.
This arbitration agreement does not preclude you from seeking action by federal, state, or local government agencies. You and The Company also have the right to bring qualifying claims in small claims court. In addition, you and The Company retain the right to apply to any court of competent jurisdiction for provisional relief, including pre-arbitral attachments or preliminary injunctions, and any such request shall not be deemed incompatible with this Agreement, nor a waiver of the right to have disputes submitted to arbitration as provided in this Agreement. Neither you nor The Company may act as a class representative or private attorney general, nor participate as a member of a class of claimants, with respect to any Claim. Claims may not be arbitrated on a class or representative basis. The arbitrator can decide only your and/or The Company's individual Claims. The arbitrator may not consolidate or join the claims of other persons or parties who may be similarly situated.

If any provision of this Section 15 is found to be invalid or unenforceable, then that specific provision shall be of no force and effect and shall be severed, but the remainder of this Section 15 shall continue in full force and effect. No waiver of any provision of this Section 15 will be effective or enforceable unless recorded in a writing signed by the party waiving such a right or requirement. Such a waiver shall not waive or affect any other portion of this Agreement. This Section 15 will survive the termination of your relationship with The Company. This section limits certain rights, including the right to maintain a court action or to have a trial by jury, the right to participate in any form of class or representative claim and the right to engage in discovery except as provided in AAA rules. Other rights that you or The Company would have in court also may not be available in arbitration.
No delay or omission by either party hereto to exercise any right or power occurring upon any noncompliance or default by the other party with respect to any of the terms of this Agreement shall impair any such right or power or be construed to be a waiver thereof. The terms and conditions of this Agreement may be waived or amended only in writing and only by the party that is entitled to the benefits of the term(s) or condition(s) being waived or amended. Unless stated otherwise, all remedies provided for in this Agreement shall be cumulative and in addition to and not in lieu of any other remedies available to either party at law, in equity, or otherwise.
If any provision of this Agreement or any word, phrase, clause, sentence, or other portion thereof should be held to be unenforceable or invalid for any reason, then such provision or portion thereof shall be modified or deleted in such manner as to render this Agreement as modified legal and enforceable to the maximum extent permitted under applicable laws.

This Agreement, and any rights and licenses granted hereunder, may not be transferred or assigned by you, but may be assigned by Company without restriction.
