Operation of Site; Availability of Products; International Issues.
The Site is operated in the United States, and is primarily intended for users located in the U.S. Sulos makes no representation that the Site is appropriate or available for use beyond the U.S. If you use the Site from other locations, you are doing so on your own initiative and are responsible for compliance with applicable local laws regarding your online conduct and acceptable content, if and to the extent local laws apply.

Applicable Law and Venue
Any dispute relating in any way to your use of the Site or the Content shall be submitted to confidential arbitration in Dallas, Texas, except that, to the extent you have in any manner violated or threatened to violate Sulos’s intellectual property rights, Sulos may seek injunctive or other appropriate relief in any state or federal court in the State of Texas and you consent to exclusive jurisdiction and venue in such courts.

Disputes will be arbitrated only on an individual basis and will not be joined or consolidated with any other arbitrations or other proceedings that involve any claim or controversy of any other party. There shall be no right or authority for any dispute to be arbitrated on a class action basis or on any basis involving disputes brought in a purported representative capacity on behalf of the general public, or other persons or entities similarly situated. But if, for any reason, any court with competent jurisdiction holds that this restriction is unconscionable or unenforceable, then our agreement herein to arbitrate will not apply and the dispute must be brought exclusively in court pursuant to the “Applicable Law and Venue” section. Notwithstanding any other provision herein, any and all issues relating to the scope, interpretation and enforceability of the class action waiver provisions contained herein (described in this “No Class Action Matters” Section), are to be decided only by a court of competent jurisdiction, and not by the arbitrator.
