Arbitration; Class Action Waiver; Jury Trial Waiver; Enforcement of Terms and Conditions; Governing Law
These Terms and Conditions are governed and interpreted pursuant to the laws of the State of New York, United States of America, notwithstanding any principles of conflicts of law. TradingScreen makes no representation that Materials provided through the Services are applicable or appropriate for use in all locations. If you use the Services from other locations, you are responsible for compliance with applicable local laws. If you take legal action relating to these Terms and Conditions or your interactions with or relationship to TradingScreen that is not subject to arbitration as provided below, you agree to file such action only in the state and federal courts located in New York County, New York and waive any objection you may have to the venue or forum.
You acknowledge and agree that the terms contained in this Terms and Conditions are reasonable and necessary, and that your actual or threatened breach of this Terms and Conditions could give rise to irreparable harm to TradingScreen for which monetary damages would not constitute an adequate remedy and, in addition to any and all other rights that may be available in respect of such breach or threatened breach, will entitle TradingScreen to seek immediate injunctive and other equitable relief from a court of competent jurisdiction without any requirement to post bond.
Any controversy or claim between you and TradingScreen arising out of or relating to these Terms and Conditions, or breach thereof, including disputes with respect to whether the subject matter of any controversy or claim is within the scope of the Terms and Conditions, will be resolved by binding arbitration in New York County, New York under the Commercial Arbitration Rules of the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”) and administered by the AAA. The parties explicitly disclaim any applicability of the U.N. Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods to these Terms and Conditions.
Neither you nor TradingScreen will participate in a class action or class-wide arbitration for any claims covered by these Terms and Conditions. Any dispute resolution proceeding 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, YOU WAIVE, TO THE FULLEST EXTENT PERMITTED BY LAW, ANY RIGHT TO TRIAL BY JURY IN ANY ACTION, SUIT, CLAIM OR PROCEEDING RELATING TO THESE TERMS AND CONDITIONS.
If any part of these Terms and Conditions is found to be unlawful, void or unenforceable, that part will be deemed severable and will not affect the validity and enforceability of remaining provisions.
