J. Severability

In the event that one or more of the words, phrases, sentences, clauses, sections, subdivisions or subparagraphs contained herein shall be held invalid, the TCU shall be construed as if such invalid portion had not been inserted. In the event that any invalid language is severed under this paragraph, the severed language shall be comprised of the smallest unit possible such that the severance of the unit results in a valid provision (e.g., a single item in a list will be severed rather than the entire list, a clause will be severed rather than the entire sentence, etc.).

The TCU sets forth and contains the entire agreement with regard to the matters set forth herein between You and FSSW. There are no promises, terms, conditions, or obligations other than those contained herein. The TCU supersedes all previous communications, representations, or agreements, either verbal or written, between and among the parties with respect to the subject matter hereof (i.e., the FSSW Website and Services access and use).

L. Choice Of Law; Venue

The Website shall be deemed solely based in Kansas, and the Website shall be deemed a passive website that does not give rise to personal jurisdiction over FSSW or any of the FSSW Parties.  The Website and Services are controlled and offered by FSSW from its facilities in the USA.  FSSW makes no representations that it is appropriate or available for use in other locations.  Those who use the Services from other jurisdictions do so voluntary and are responsible for compliance with all applicable local and international laws.  Your agreement to be bound by the TCU is deemed to have been entered into in the State of Kansas and will governed by the laws of the State of Kansas, USA, without giving effect to its choice of laws provisions.  Any cause of action or other resolution of any dispute hereunder shall be subject to the exclusive jurisdiction and venue of the state and federal courts located in Johnson County, Kansas, USA.  By accessing and using the Website, You (and any person or entity on whose behalf You act) hereby submit to personal jurisdiction in Jackson County, Missouri in any action by or against You and waive and release now and forever any defense to that assertion of jurisdiction that might otherwise exist.

M.  Dispute Resolution By Arbitration

Any dispute, controversy or claim arising out of or relating to the TCU, or any breach or threatened breach of the TCU, except as set forth below, shall be decided and settled by binding arbitration in accordance with Title 9 of the U.S. Code (United States Arbitration Act) and the Commercial Arbitration Rules of the American Arbitration Association then in effect, subject to the limitations and restrictions set forth below.  The place of arbitration shall be Kansas City, Missouri.  Notice of a demand for arbitration shall be filed in writing with the other party to the TCU and with the American Arbitration Association.  Notice of such demand shall be made promptly after such claim or dispute arises and in no event may the demand for arbitration be made if institution of legal or equitable proceedings arising out of such claims or dispute would be barred by the applicable statute of limitations.  The arbitrator(s) shall have the discretion to order a pre-hearing exchange of information by the parties, including, without limitation, production of requested documents, exchange of summaries of testimony of proposed witnesses, and examination by depositions of parties. In the event that the arbitrator(s) find that any provision of the TCU is vague or ambiguous, the parties agree that the arbitrator(s) shall construe such provision in accordance with the intent of the parties as determined by the arbitrator(s); and the arbitrator(s) shall not disregard or eliminate any such provision.  Notwithstanding any contrary provision contained herein, any party may in his, her or its sole discretion file an action with a court seeking equitable or injunctive relief to maintain the status quo until such time as the arbitration award is rendered or the controversy is otherwise resolved.  Each of the parties further agrees that, in addition to all other remedies, the arbitrator(s) shall be empowered to enforce the TCU by specific performance, injunction or other equitable remedy.  If an injunction or other equitable remedy is granted, the injured party hereby waives any right to require a bond, and if such a bond is required by law and may not be waived, hereby consents to the lowest bond amount allowed by law.  The award rendered by the arbitrator(s) may be entered and enforced in any court having competent jurisdiction.  Nothing contained herein shall apply to any claims between the parties arising out of proceedings, actions or claims filed by third parties, including but not limited to the parties’ respective rights for indemnification or contribution.

O. Headings For Convenience Only

The paragraph and section headings used herein are for convenience only. The headings do not purport to define, limit, or extend the scope or intent of the language of the sections and the paragraphs to which they pertain.

P. Waiver

The waiver by one party of a breach of any provision of the TCU by the other party shall not operate or be construed as a waiver of any subsequent breach of the same or any other provision by the other party. The failure of a party at any time to require performance of any provision hereof shall in no manner affect its right at a later time to enforce the same.
