You agree that all disputes between you and Apptizer will be resolved by binding, individual arbitration under the American Arbitration Association’s rules for arbitration of consumer-related disputes and you and Apptizer expressly waive trial by jury. This dispute resolution provision will be governed by the Federal Arbitration Act. In the event the American Arbitration Association is unwilling or unable to set a hearing date within one hundred and eighty (180) days of filing the case, then either Apptizer or you can elect to have the arbitration administered instead by the Judicial Arbitration and Mediation Services. Judgment on the award rendered by the arbitrator may be entered in any court having competent jurisdiction. Any provision of applicable law notwithstanding, the arbitrator will not have authority to award damages, remedies or awards that conflict with this Agreement. If any provision of this Agreement is held to be unlawful, void, or for any reason unenforceable during arbitration or by a court of competent jurisdiction, then that provision will be deemed severable from this Agreement and will not affect the validity and enforceability of any remaining provisions. Apptizer’s failure to insist upon or enforce strict performance of any provision of this Agreement will be deemed a further or continuing waiver of such term or condition or any other term or condition. Apptizer reserves the right to change this dispute resolution provision, but any such changes will not apply to disputes arising before the effective date of the amendment.
This Agreement is governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of the State of New Jersey, without giving effect to any principles of conflicts of law AND WILL SPECIFICALLY NOT BE GOVERNED BY THE UNITED NATIONS CONVENTIONS ON CONTRACTS FOR THE INTERNATIONAL SALE OF GOODS, IF OTHERWISE APPLICABLE.

Apptizer reserves the right at any time to modify this Agreement and to add new or additional terms or conditions on your use of the Services.
