We reserve all rights, defenses, and permissible limitations under the laws of New Jersey and under the laws of your state of residence.

10. Governing Law. These Terms will be governed by and construed, interpreted, and enforced in accordance with the laws of the State of Arizona without reference to its conflicts or choice of law principles. Any arbitration or court proceeding will take place in Phoenix, Arizona, and you hereby consent to the exclusive jurisdiction and venue of the state or Federal courts in Phoenix, Arizona. You irrevocably submit and consent to the personal jurisdiction of such courts.

11. Dispute Resolution. You and Venturi agree that any and all disputes, claims or controversies arising out of or relating to your use of or access to our Site or Venturi Materials, these Terms or the breach, termination, enforcement, interpretation, or validity of these Terms, including the determination of the scope or applicability of these Terms to arbitration (each, a “Dispute”), except those that are resolved informally or brought in a small claims court, will be arbitrated by a neutral arbitrator who has the power to award the same individual damages and individual relief that a court can. ANY ARBITRATION UNDER THESE TERMS WILL ONLY BE ON AN INDIVIDUAL BASIS; CLASS ARBITRATIONS, CLASS ACTIONS, REPRESENTATIVE ACTIONS, AND CONSOLIDATION WITH OTHER ARBITRATIONS ARE NOT PERMITTED. YOU WAIVE ANY RIGHT TO HAVE YOUR CASE DECIDED BY A JURY AND YOU WAIVE ANY RIGHT TO PARTICIPATE IN A CLASS ACTION AGAINST VENTURI. If any provision of this arbitration agreement is found unenforceable, the unenforceable provision will be severed, and the remaining arbitration terms will be enforced (but in no case will there be a class or representative arbitration).

12. Informal Resolution. To the extent feasible, the parties desire to resolve any through discussions and negotiations between each other. The parties agree to attempt to resolve any Disputes by negotiation with the other party (by phone, electronic correspondence, or written correspondence). To provide this opportunity to resolve any Dispute, before commencing any arbitration or suit, each party agrees to send to the other party a written Notice (“Notice”). Any Notice to Venturi should be sent by mail to Venturi, Attn: Arbitration Provision, 501 North 44th Street, Suite 350 Phoenix, AZ 85008. Any Notice sent to you will be sent to the address on file for your account. The Notice must: (i) include your name and account number; (ii) provide detailed information sufficient to evaluate the merits of the claiming party’s individualized claim and for the other party to determine if an amicable resolution is possible; and (iii) set forth the specific relief sought, including whatever amount of money is demanded and the means by which the demanding party calculated the claimed damages. If we are not able to resolve any Dispute ourselves, you and Venturi agree to resolve such Dispute through confidential binding arbitration as set forth below.

13. Binding Arbitration. If you and Venturi are unable to resolve a Dispute through informal negotiations or in small claims court (as set forth below), either you or Venturi may elect to have the Dispute (except those Disputes expressly excluded below) finally and exclusively resolved by binding arbitration. Any election to arbitrate by one party shall be final and binding on the other. The arbitration shall be commenced and conducted under the Commercial Arbitration Rules of the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”) and, where appropriate, the AAA’s Supplementary Procedures for Consumer Related Disputes (“AAA Consumer Rules”) both of which are available at the AAA website www.adr.org. The determination of whether a Dispute is subject to arbitration shall be governed by the Federal Arbitration Act, 9 U.S.C. §§ 1-16, including its procedural provisions, and determined by a court rather than an arbitrator. Except as set forth above, the Arbitrator shall be responsible for determining all threshold arbitrability issues, including issues relating to whether these Terms (or any aspect thereof) are enforceable, unconscionable or illusory and any defense to arbitration, including waiver, delay, laches, or estoppel. Your arbitration fees and your share of arbitrator compensation shall be governed by the AAA Rules and, where appropriate, limited by the AAA Consumer Rules. The arbitration may be conducted in person, through the submission of documents, by phone or online. While an arbitrator may award declaratory or injunctive relief, the arbitrator may do so only with respect to the individual party seeking relief and only to the extent necessary to provide relief warranted by the individual party’s claim. The arbitrator’s decision and judgment thereon will not have a precedential or collateral estoppel effect. The arbitrator will make a decision in writing, but need not provide a statement of reasons unless requested by a party. The arbitrator must follow applicable law, and any award may be challenged if the arbitrator fails to do so. Except as otherwise provided in these Terms you and Venturi may litigate in court to compel arbitration, stay proceeding pending arbitration, or to confirm, modify, vacate or enter judgment on the award entered by the arbitrator.

14. Confidentiality of Proceedings. Each of the parties shall maintain the confidential nature of the arbitration and shall not (without the prior written consent of the other party) disclose to any third party the fact, existence, content, award, or other result of the arbitration, except as may be necessary to enforce, enter, or challenge such award in a court of competent jurisdiction or as otherwise required by applicable law.

15. Opt-Out. You have the right to opt out of binding arbitration within thirty (30) days of the date you first accepted the terms of this Section 8 by emailing us at [INSERT EMAIL ADDRESS]. In order to be effective, the opt-out notice must include your full name and address and clearly indicate your intent to opt out of binding arbitration. By opting out of binding arbitration, you are agreeing that only a court may be used to resolve any Dispute. Opting out will not affect any other aspect of the Terms, or the Site, and will have no effect on any other or future agreements you may reach to arbitrate with us.

16. Waiver of Rights. You hereby agree that you understand the consequences of agreeing to binding arbitration under this Section, including giving up any constitutional rights to have the Dispute determined by a court of law or by a jury and any right that you may have under Article 13 of the California State Bar Act to have a trial de novo by a court after nonbinding arbitration of a dispute concerning fees or costs; that discovery of information in arbitration may be limited; and that the arbitration decision will be final and binding, except to the limited extent that judicial review might be available.

18. General Provisions. These Terms and any additional terms posted on the Site together constitute the entire agreement between Venturi and you with respect to your use of the Site. Our failure to insist upon or enforce strict performance of any provision of these Terms shall not be construed as a waiver of any provision or right. Neither the course of conduct between the parties nor trade practice shall act to modify any provision of these Terms. Venturi may assign its rights and duties under these Terms to any party at any time without notice to you.

The Terms and any action related thereto will be governed and interpreted by and under the laws of the State of Arizona without giving effect to any principles that provide for the application of the law of another jurisdiction.
