11. Entire Agreement
Other than as stated in this section or as explicitly agreed upon in writing between you and Centerspec, the Agreements constitute all the terms and conditions agreed upon between you and Centerspec and supersede any prior agreements in relation to the subject matter of these Agreements, whether written or oral.
12. Severability and waiver
Unless as otherwise stated in the Agreements, should any provision of the Agreements be held invalid or unenforceable for any reason or to any extent, such invalidity or enforceability shall not in any manner affect or render invalid or unenforceable the remaining provisions of the Agreements, and the application of that provision shall be enforced to the extent permitted by law.
Any failure by Centerspec or any third party beneficiary to enforce the Agreements or any provision thereof shall not waive Centerspec’s or the applicable third party beneficiary’s right to do so.
Centerspec may assign the Agreements or any part of them, and Centerspec may delegate any of its obligations under the Agreements. You may not assign the Agreements or any part of them, nor transfer or sub-license your rights under the Agreements, to any third party without our prior consent which may be withheld in our sole discretion.
To the fullest extent permitted by applicable law, you agree to indemnify and hold Centerspec harmless from and against all damages, losses, and expenses of any kind (including reasonable attorney fees and costs) arising out of: (1) your breach of this Agreement; 2) any activity in which you engage on or through the Centerspec Service; and (3) your violation of any law or the rights of a third party.
15. Governing Law / Jurisdiction
The Agreements (and any non-contractual disputes/claims arising out of or in connection with them) are subject to the laws of the State of New Jersey, United States of America, without regard to choice or conflicts of law principles. Further, you and Centerspec agree to the jurisdiction of Camden County, New Jersey to resolve any dispute, claim, or controversy that relates to or arises in connection with the Agreements (and any non-contractual disputes/claims relating to or arising in connection with them).
16. Billing Disputes
If you do not agree with a charge on your bill you must (i) still pay the charge; and (ii) notify Centerspec in writing no later than thirty (30) days after the date of the bill (or such later date as required by law) of the disputed charges and submit any documentation or other information to substantiate your claim. You waive any disputes or credits that you do not report within this 30 day period. Centerspec will investigate any disputed charges and will use reasonable efforts to advise you of the results of our investigation within thirty (30) days after Centerspec’s receipt of your notice of dispute. Centerspec may, in its sole discretion, waive such charges. Failure to pay charges billed (including checks returned for insufficient funds) may result in discontinuance of Service and/or imposition of a late payment, or a service charge of 1.5% per month for such unpaid charges. Attorney fees and other costs incurred in collecting any overdue amounts shall be payable by you.
17. ARBITRATION AGREEMENT
17a. Dispute resolution and arbitration
You and Centerspec agree that any dispute, claim, or controversy between you and Centerspec arising in connection with or relating in any way to these Agreements or to your relationship with Centerspec as a user of the Service (whether based in contract, tort, statute, fraud, misrepresentation, or any other legal theory, and whether the claims arise during or after the termination of the Agreements) will be determined by mandatory binding individual (not class) arbitration. You and Centerspec further agree that the arbitrator shall have the exclusive power to rule on his or her own jurisdiction, including any objections with respect to the existence, scope or validity of the Arbitration Agreement or to the arbitrability of any claim or counterclaim. Arbitration is more informal than a lawsuit in court. THERE IS NO JUDGE OR JURY IN ARBITRATION, AND COURT REVIEW OF AN ARBITRATION AWARD IS LIMITED. There may be more limited discovery than in court. The arbitrator must follow this agreement and can award the same damages and relief as a court (including attorney fees), except that the arbitrator may not award any relief, including declaratory or injunctive relief, benefiting anyone but the parties to the arbitration. This arbitration provision will survive termination of the Agreements.
Notwithstanding the clause above (17a), you and Centerspec both agree that nothing in this Arbitration Agreement will be deemed to waive, preclude, or otherwise limit either of our rights, at any time, to bring an individual action seeking only temporary or preliminary individualized injunctive relief in a court of law, pending a final ruling from the arbitrator. In addition, this Arbitration Agreement doesn’t stop you or us from bringing issues to the attention of federal, state, or local agencies. Such agencies can, if the law allows, seek relief against us on your behalf (or vice versa).
17c. No Class or Representative Proceedings: Class Action Waiver
YOU AND CENTERSPEC AGREE THAT EACH MAY BRING CLAIMS AGAINST THE OTHER ONLY IN YOUR OR ITS INDIVIDUAL CAPACITY AND NOT AS A PLAINTIFF OR CLASS MEMBER IN ANY PURPORTED CLASS OR REPRESENTATIVE ACTION. Unless both you and Centerspec agree, no arbitrator or judge may consolidate more than one person’s claims or otherwise preside over any form of a representative or class proceeding. The arbitrator may award injunctive relief only in favor of the individual party seeking relief and only to the extent necessary to provide relief warranted by that party’s individual claim. If a court decides that applicable law precludes enforcement of any of this paragraph’s limitations as to a particular claim for relief, then that claim (and only that claim) must be severed from the arbitration and may be brought in court.
17d. Arbitration rules
Either you or we may start arbitration proceedings. Any arbitration between you and Centerspec will take place under the Consumer Arbitration Rules of the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”) then in force (the “AAA Rules”), as modified by this Arbitration Agreement. You and Centerspec agree that the Federal Arbitration Act applies and governs the interpretation and enforcement of this provision (despite the choice of law provision above). The AAA Rules, as well as instructions on how to file an arbitration proceeding with the AAA, appear at adr.org, or you may call the AAA at 1-800-778-7879.
17e. Notice; Process
A party who intends to seek arbitration must first send a written notice of the dispute to the other, by certified mail, Federal Express, UPS, or Express Mail (signature required), or in the event that we do not have a physical address on file for you, by electronic mail ("Notice"). Centerspec's address for Notice is: ATTN: Legal, HomeSource, Inc., 420 Ganttown Rd., Sewell, NJ 08080. The Notice must (1) describe the nature and basis of the claim or dispute; and (2) set forth the specific relief sought ("Demand"). We agree to use good faith efforts to resolve the claim directly, but if we do not reach an agreement to do so within 30 days after the Notice is received, you or Centerspec may commence an arbitration proceeding. All documents and information disclosed in the course of the arbitration shall be kept strictly confidential by the recipient and shall not be used by the recipient for any purpose other than for purposes of the arbitration or the enforcement of the arbitrator’s decision and award and shall not be disclosed except in confidence to persons who have a need to know for such purposes or as required by applicable law.
Thank you for reading our Terms. We hope you enjoy Centerspec and our Service!
