    • Binding Arbitration. If the Parties are unable to resolve any controversy or claim related to this Agreement (each a “Dispute”), both Parties agree that, except for those Disputes expressly excluded below, such Dispute shall be finally and exclusively resolved by binding arbitration. THE USER UNDERSTANDS THAT ABSENT THIS PROVISION, THE USER MAY HAVE THE RIGHT TO SUE IN COURT AND HAVE A JURY TRIAL. The arbitration shall be commenced and conducted by the American Arbitration Association under its Commercial Arbitration Rules. For the convenience of the Parties, the arbitration may be conducted in person, through the submission of documents or by phone. The arbitrator must follow applicable law, and any award may be challenged if the arbitrator fails to do so.
    • Restrictions. The Parties agree that any arbitration shall be limited to the Dispute between Generali and the User individually. To the full extent permitted by law: (1) no arbitration shall be joined with any other; (2) there is no right or authority for any Dispute to be arbitrated on a class-action basis or to utilize class action procedures; and (3) there is no right or authority for any Dispute to be brought in a purported representative capacity on behalf of the general public or any other persons.
    • Exceptions to Arbitration. The Parties agree that the following Disputes are not subject to the above provisions concerning binding arbitration: (1) any Disputes seeking to enforce or protect, or concerning the validity of, any of Generali’s Intellectual Property rights; (2) any claim for injunctive relief; and (3) any attempt to collect a debt.
    • Location. Any arbitration will take place in New York, NY. Any Dispute not subject to arbitration (other than claims proceedings in any small claims court), shall be decided by a court of competent jurisdiction within New York, NY, and the Parties hereby submit to the personal jurisdiction of that court.
    • Governing Law. Except as otherwise provided for herein, this Agreement shall be governed by, and will be construed under, the laws of the state of New York, without regard to choice of law principles. Those who choose to access the Site from locations outside of the United States do so on their own initiative, and are responsible for compliance with local laws if and to the extent local laws are applicable.

    • If any provision of the Terms is found by a court of competent jurisdiction to be invalid, the Parties nevertheless agree that the court should endeavor to give effect to the Parties’ intentions as reflected in the provision, and the other provisions of the Terms shall remain in full force and effect. Headings are for reference purposes only and in no way define, limit, construe or describe the scope or extent of such section. Generali’s failure to act with respect to any failure by the User or others to comply with these Terms does not waive Generali’s right to act with respect to subsequent or similar failures.

The User may not assign or transfer their rights or obligations under this Agreement without the prior written consent of Generali, and any assignment or transfer in violation of this provision shall be null and void. Generali shall not be liable for any delay or failure to perform resulting from causes outside the reasonable control of Generali, including without limitation any failure to perform hereunder due to unforeseen circumstances or cause beyond Generali’s control, such as acts of God, fire, flood, earthquake, accidents, strikes, war, terrorism, governmental act, failure of common carriers (website providers and web hosting providers), or shortages of transportation facilities, fuel, energy, labor, or materials.
