Dispute Resolution. In the event of any dispute, claim, question or disagreement arising from or relating to this Agreement, or the relationship that results from this Agreement, other than claims for injunctive or other equitable relief (a “Dispute”), the parties hereto shall use their best efforts to settle the Dispute. To this effect, the parties shall consult and negotiate with each other in good faith and, recognizing their mutual interests, attempt to reach a just and equitable solution satisfactory to both parties. If the parties do not reach such solution within a period of thirty (30) days, then the Dispute shall be resolved by binding arbitration in Los Angeles, California, in accordance with the Commercial Arbitration Rules of the American Arbitration Association (the “AAA”), subject to the limitations of this section. This agreement to arbitrate will be specifically enforceable under the prevailing law of any court having jurisdiction. Notice of a demand for arbitration shall be filed in writing with the other party hereto and with the AAA. The demand for arbitration shall be made within the time provided in the section “Limitation of Time to File Claims,” and in no event shall any such demand be made after the date when institution of legal or equitable proceedings based on such Dispute would be barred by the applicable statute of limitations. The parties agree that one (1) arbitrator shall arbitrate the Dispute. The arbitrator shall be selected by the joint agreement of the parties, but if they do not so agree within twenty (20) days after the date of the notice of a demand for arbitration referred to above, the selection shall be made pursuant to the Commercial Arbitration Rules of the AAA from the panels of business arbitrators maintained by the AAA. The decision of the arbitrator shall be made in writing, shall be final, judgment may be entered upon it in any court having jurisdiction thereof, and the decision shall not be subject to vacation, modification or appeal, except to the extent permitted by sections 10 and 11 of the Federal Arbitration Act, the terms of which sections the parties agree shall apply.

Force Majeure. TFTT Presents shall not be liable to you or any other person, firm or entity for any failure of performance under this Agreement if such failure is due to any cause or causes by TFTT Presents or its service providers, including, but not limited to, strikes, labor disputes, lockouts, or work stoppages, or other labor difficulties, shortages of labor or materials, riots, vandalism, civil disturbances, acts of terrorism, wars, third-party provider outages, cable cuts, power crisis shortages, internet failures, computer equipment failures, telecommunication equipment failures, other equipment failures, electrical power failures, loss of or fluctuations in heat, light, or air conditioning, inclement weather, fires, floods, storms, explosions, and other uncontrollable acts of God or nature, or other similar occurrences; any law, order, regulation, direction, action or request of the United States or foreign government (including state and local governmental agency, department, commission, court, bureau, corporation or other instrumentality of any one or more of said governments) or of any civil or military authority, or national emergencies.

This Agreement constitutes the entire agreement between you and us with respect to the Services and supersede all prior or contemporaneous understandings and agreements, whether written or oral, with respect thereto. You may be subject to additional third-party terms and policies based on your use of the Services. No failure to exercise, and no delay in exercising, on the part of either party, any right or any power hereunder shall operate as a waiver thereof, nor shall any single or partial exercise of any right or power hereunder preclude further exercise of that or any other right hereunder. In the event of a conflict between this Agreement and any applicable purchase or other terms, this Agreement shall govern. If any provision of this Agreement is illegal or unenforceable under applicable law, the remainder of the provision will be amended to achieve as closely as possible the effect of the original term and all other provisions of this Agreement will continue in full force and effect. The headings of sections and paragraphs in this Agreement are for convenience only and shall not affect its interpretation.

Choice of Laws. This Agreement is governed by the internal substantive laws of the State of California, without respect to its conflict of laws principles. The application of the United Nations Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods is expressly excluded.
Third Party Vendors. Some of the Services are offered and/or provided to you through third parties with which we contract.
Class Action Waiver. Any proceedings to resolve or litigate any dispute in any forum will be conducted solely on an individual basis. Neither you nor we will seek to have any dispute heard as a class action or in any other proceeding in which either party acts or proposes to act in a representative capacity, and each party hereby waives any right to assert consolidated claims with respect to any disputes subject to arbitration under this Agreement or any disputes between the parties. No arbitration or proceeding will be combined with another without the prior written consent of all parties to all affected arbitrations or proceedings.
Relationship of the Parties. You acknowledge and agree that you and TFTT Presents are independent contractors under this Agreement, and nothing in this Agreement shall be construed to create a partnership, joint venture, agency, or employment relationship. Neither party pursuant to this Agreement has authority to enter into agreements of any kind on behalf of the other and neither party shall be considered the agent of the other.
Termination and Survival. This Agreement shall remain in full force and effect for as long as your TFTT Presents account remains open, regardless of whether or not you are logging into the TFTT Presents account or using the Services, unless specifically terminated by TFTT Presents. Any and all provisions in this Agreement which impose obligations continuing in their nature shall survive termination or otherwise continue to remain in full force and effect even after termination of this Agreement.
