(a) Before bringing a formal legal case, please try contacting our Customer Support team at http://stocket.com/contact. Most disputes can be resolved that way.
(c) An arbitration proceeding shall be brought before a neutral arbitrator instead of a judge and jury, so you and We are giving up our right to a trial before a judge and jury.

(d) The provisions of Section 16(c) notwithstanding, you and We agree that we will go to court to resolve disputes relating to:
Your and/Our intellectual property (for example, trademarks, trade dress, domain names, trade secrets, copyrights or patents); or
your violation of the Community Rules (below).
(e) In addition, if you or SOCIAL VOUCHER brings a claim in court that should be arbitrated, or either you or We refuse to arbitrate a claim that should be arbitrated, the other can ask a court to force us to go to arbitration to resolve the claim, i.e., compel arbitration.

Unless both of us shall agree otherwise in writing, all arbitrations arising under this agreement shall exclusively take place in Palm Beach County, Florida.
17. APPLICABLE LAW
The Federal Arbitration Act, including its procedural provisions, is the law that will be applied to determine whether Section 16, i.e., Agreement to Arbitrate and Class Action Waiver, can be enforced and how it should be interpreted. Apart from that, these Terms and our relationship will be governed by Florida law, excluding its conflicts of laws principles, and venue shall lie solely in the Federal or State Courts of Palm Beach County, Florida.
20. ENTIRE AGREEMENT
These Terms, and any other policies or rules We reference in these Terms, make up the entire agreement between you and Us relating to the subject matter of these Terms, and supersede all prior understandings of the parties relating to the subject matter of these Terms, whether those prior understandings were electronic, oral or written, or whether established by custom, practice, policy or precedent, between you and Us.
21. LANGUAGE OF THE TERMS
22. NO WAIVER
If We do not enforce a provision of these Terms or any others referenced hereunder, that does not waive our right to do so later. And, if We do expressly waive a provision of any of the foregoing, that does not mean it is waived for all time in the future. Any waiver must be in writing and signed by both you and Us to be legally binding.
We may notify you by posting something on www.SOCIAL VOUCHER.com, and/or by sending you an e-mail or using other ways of communicating with you based on the contact information you provide to us.
