We may disclose your information when subpoenaed, if ordered or otherwise required by a court of law, arbitrator, or other similar proceeding or the rules governing such a proceeding, for government investigations, with government agencies if required by law, to exercise, establish, or defend ASI’s legal rights, to protect your vital interests or those of any other third party, and when ASI otherwise believes in good faith that any applicable law requires it.
BY ACCEPTING THIS AGREEMENT, YOU WAIVE AND HOLD HARMLESS THE ASI ENTITIES FROM ANY CLAIMS RESULTING FROM ANY OF THE AFOREMENTIONED ACTIONS TAKEN BY THE ASI ENTITIES.
The laws of the State of Minnesota shall apply to this Agreement, without regard to any conflict of laws provisions. The 1980 United Nations Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods, the United Nations Convention on the Limitation Period in the International Sale of Goods, and the Uniform Computer Information Transactions Act, and any implementations thereof in various jurisdictions and any subsequent revisions thereto, shall not apply to this Agreement. Any controversy or claim arising out of or relating to this Agreement or your use of the Website and Related Services, including without limitation the Content, or the purchase of any good or service (a “Dispute”) shall be settled by arbitration under the rules provided by the American Arbitration Association (AAA), and you hereby waive any right you may otherwise have to a jury trial. A single arbitrator shall preside over any arbitration, and such arbitrator shall, in his or her sole discretion, determine the arbitrability of any alleged Dispute. Any arbitration shall be conducted in Minneapolis, Minnesota. To the fullest extent permitted by applicable law, no arbitration under this Agreement will be joined to an arbitration involving any other party subject to this Agreement, whether through class arbitration proceedings or otherwise. Judgment on an award rendered by an arbitrator may be entered in any state or federal court within or without the State of Minnesota. Notwithstanding the foregoing, in lieu of or addition to any other remedies available to ASI, ASI may seek injunctive or other relief, including without limitation a suit for money damages, in any state, federal, or national court of competent jurisdiction for any actual or alleged infringement of ASI’s or any third party’s intellectual property or proprietary rights. You hereby irrevocably consent to non-exclusive jurisdiction and venue of the State and Federal courts of the State of Minnesota with respect to any such injunctive or other relief. You further acknowledge that ASI’s rights in its intellectual property are of a special, unique, extraordinary character, giving those rights peculiar value, the unauthorized use, disclosure, or loss of which cannot be readily estimated and may not be adequately compensated for in monetary damages.
If any part of this Agreement is unlawful, void, or unenforceable, that part will be deemed severable, shall be modified by the arbitrator or, where an action in court is allowed as stated in this Section of the Agreement, court of competent jurisdiction to reflect to the maximum extent possible the original intention of the parties as dictated by the original wording, and will not affect the validity and enforceability of any remaining provisions.
ASI may assign or otherwise convey any of its rights and obligations under this Agreement, but you may not. All of the terms and conditions of this agreement shall inure and be binding upon any party’s permitted successors and assigns.
You agree that no joint venture, partnership, employment, or agency relationship exists between you and ASI as a result of this agreement or use of ASI’s website or any Website and Related Services, or the purchase of any good or service.
This Agreement, along with the additional terms and conditions referenced herein, constitutes the entire agreement among the parties relating to the subject matter of this Agreement and supersedes all prior or contemporaneous communications and proposals, whether electronic, oral or written between the user and ASI with respect to the subject matter of this Agreement. Notwithstanding the foregoing, any additional terms and conditions on this website will govern the items to which they pertain.
The section headings appearing in this Agreement are inserted only as a matter of convenience and in no way define, limit, construe or describe the scope or extent of such section or in any way affect such section.
The failure by ASI at any time to enforce any of the provisions of this Agreement or any right or remedy available hereunder or at law or in equity, or to exercise any option herein provided, will not constitute a waiver of such provision, right, remedy or option or in any way affect the validity of this Agreement. The waiver of any default by us will not be deemed a continuing waiver and will apply solely to the instance to which such waiver is directed.
This Agreement may contain typographical errors or other errors or inaccuracies and may not be correct or current. We reserve the right to correct any errors, inaccuracies or omissions and to change or update this Agreement at any time without prior notice. We do not, however, guarantee that any errors, inaccuracies or omissions will be corrected.
