You and Company 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, representative or multi-claimant proceeding, and the arbitrator shall have no power to award class-wide relief. The Arbitrator may award injunctive or declaratory 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, only as permitted by applicable law as permitted by these Terms of Service and Use. The Arbitrator shall have no authority to award punitive, exemplary, multiplied, or consequential damages or any other relief not allowed under this Arbitration Agreement.

YOU HEREBY KNOWINGLY, VOLUNTARILY, AND INTENTIONALLY WAIVE ANY RIGHT YOU MAY HAVE TO A TRIAL BY JURY IN RESPECT OF ANY LITIGATION (INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO, ANY CLAIMS, COUNTERCLAIMS, CROSS-CLAIMS, OR THIRD-PARTY CLAIMS) ARIAING OUT OF, UNDER OR IN CONNECTION WITH THIS AGREEMENT. 28. GENERAL PROVISIONS. If any provision(s) of this Agreement are held by a court of competent jurisdiction to be contrary to law, then such provision(s) shall be construed to reflect the intentions of the parties with the other provisions remaining in full force and effect. Company’s decision to delay or failure to exercise or enforce any right or provision of this Agreement shall not constitute a waiver of such right or provision unless acknowledged and agreed to by Company in writing. Even if Company acts in a way that You deem inconsistent with this Agreement, Company’s action shall not constitute or be deemed a waiver of any right or remedy. User and Company agree that any cause of action arising out of or related to these Services must commence within one (1) year after the cause of action arose; otherwise, such cause of action is permanently barred. The section titles in the Agreement are solely used for the convenience of the parties and have no legal or contractual significance. You may also be subject to additional Terms and Conditions that may apply when You use Affiliate or other Services, Third-Party content, or Third-Party software. If Company takes any action to enforce this Agreement, Company, if the prevailing party, will be entitled to recover from You, and you agree to pay, all reasonable and necessary attorneys’ fees and any cost of litigation, in addition to any other relief, at law or in equity, to which Company may be entitled. Company’s failure to enforce strict performance of any provision of these Terms of Use will not constitute a waiver of Company’s right to subsequently enforce such a provision or any other provision of these Terms, nor will any delay or omission of the part of Company to exercise or take advantage of any right or remedy that Company has or may have hereunder, operate as a waiver of any right or remedy. 29.
