· Transmit any Content or Information: not related to appropriate subject matters; which is misleading to others, including consumers; that is unlawful, harmful, threatening, abusive, harassing, tortuous, defamatory, vulgar, obscene, libelous, invasive of another’s privacy, hateful, or racially, ethnically or otherwise objectionable; that you do not have a right to post and transmit under any law or under contractual relationships; such that such posting, uploading, or transmission constitutes the infringement of any patent, trademark, trade secret, copyright or other proprietary rights of any party; and materials that contain software viruses or any other computer code, files or programs designed to interrupt, destroy or limit the functionality of any computer software or hardware or telecommunications equipment; or

Disputes

Any dispute or claim relating in any way to your use of the Websites or the Services will be resolved by binding arbitration, rather than in court, except that you may assert claims in small claims court if your claims qualify. The Federal Arbitration Act and federal arbitration law apply to this Agreement.

 

There is no judge or jury in arbitration, and court review of an arbitration award is limited. However, an arbitrator can award on an individual basis the same damages and relief as a court (including injunctive and declaratory relief or statutory damages), and must follow the terms of these Terms of Use as a court would.

 

To begin an arbitration proceeding, you must send Us a letter requesting arbitration and describing your claim to Us at Preferred Partner Community, LLC, 9001 E Bloomington Freeway Suite 129, Minneapolis, MN 55420. The arbitration will be conducted by the American Arbitration Association (AAA) under its rules.  Payment of all filing, administration and arbitrator fees will be governed by the AAA's rules. All arbitrations shall be held within Ramsey County, Minnesota. 

 

We each agree that any dispute resolution proceedings will be conducted only on an individual basis and not in a class, consolidated or representative action. If for any reason a claim proceeds in court rather than in arbitration we each waive any right to a jury trial. We also both agree that you or we may bring suit in court to enjoin infringement or other misuse of intellectual property rights.
