This disclosure is required by rule of the Supreme Court of Iowa. NOTICE TO THE PUBLIC: Memberships and offices in legal fraternities and legal societies, technical and professional licenses, and memberships in scientific, technical and professional associations and societies of law or field of practice do not mean that a lawyer is a specialist or expert in a field of law, nor do they mean that such a lawyer is necessarily any more expert or competent than any other lawyer.

Governing Laws in Case of Dispute, Jurisdiction

These Terms of Use and the relationship between any use of the Website shall be governed by and interpreted in accordance with the laws of the State of Florida, USA, without regard to any choice of law provisions. Any and all disputes arising hereunder shall be governed as set forth by the Arbitration provision below.

Arbitration

Any and all claims by you arising out of or related to the use of the Website or your use thereof may be resolved only through a binding arbitration proceeding governed by the Commercial Arbitration Rules ("CA Rules”) of the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”). The AAA Rules and fee information are available at www.adr.org. The arbitration shall be conducted by a single arbitrator, in Orlando, Orange County, Florida. You shall bear the cost of any arbitration filing fees and arbitration fees. You are responsible for all other additional costs that you may incur in the arbitration including, but not limited to attorney’s fees and expert witness costs unless AJK Legal is otherwise specifically required to pay such fees under applicable law. Both your agreement to arbitrate all controversies, disputes and claims, and the results and awards rendered through the arbitration, will be final and binding on you and may be specifically enforced by legal proceedings. Arbitration will be the sole means of resolving such controversies, disputes and claims, and you waive your rights to resolve such controversies, disputes and claims by court proceedings or any other means. You agree that judgment may be entered on the award in any court of competent jurisdiction and, therefore, any award rendered shall be binding. The arbitrator may not consolidate more than one person’s claims, and may not otherwise preside over any form of a representative or class proceeding. You understand that by agreeing to arbitration as a mechanism to resolve all controversies, disputes and claims between us, you are waiving certain rights, including the right to bring an action in court, the right to a jury trial, the right to broad discovery, and the right to an appeal. You understand that in the context of arbitration, a case is decided by an arbitrator (one or more), not by a judge or a jury.

Indemnity

You agree to, and you hereby, defend, indemnify, and hold AJK Legal harmless from and against any and all claims, damages, losses, costs, investigations, liabilities, judgments, fines, penalties, settlements, interest, and expenses (including attorneys’ fees) that directly or indirectly arise from or are related to any claim, suit, action, demand, or proceeding made or brought against AJK Legal, or on account of the investigation, defense, or settlement thereof, arising out of or in connection with, whether occurring heretofore or hereafter: (i) your use of the Website and your activities in connection with the Websites; (ii) your breach or alleged breach of these Terms; (iii) your violation or alleged violation of any laws, rules, regulations, codes, statutes, ordinances, or orders of any governmental or quasi-governmental authorities in connection with your use of the Websites or your activities in connection with the Website; (iv) information or material transmitted through your personal computer, mobile phone, wireless device, or other Internet enabled device, even if not submitted by you, that infringes, violates, or misappropriates any copyright, trademark, trade secret, trade dress, patent, publicity, privacy, or other right of any person or entity; (v) any misrepresentation made by you; and (vi) AJK Legal’s use of the information that you submit to us (all of the foregoing, “Claims and Losses”). You will cooperate as fully required by AJK Legal in the defense of any Claim and Losses. Notwithstanding the foregoing, AJK Legal retains the exclusive right to settle, compromise, and pay any and all claims and losses. AJK Legal reserves the right to assume the exclusive defense and control of any claims and losses. You will not settle any claims and losses without, in each instance, the prior written consent of AJK Legal.
