This Agreement is governed by the United States Federal Arbitration Act, applicable United States federal law, and Washington state law, without reference to any applicable conflict of laws rules. ANY DISPUTE ARISING OUT OF THIS AGREEMENT WILL BE RESOLVED BY BINDING ARBITRATION, RATHER THAN IN COURT. There is no judge or jury in arbitration, and court review of an arbitration award is limited. However, an arbitrator can award on an individual basis the same damages and relief as a court (including injunctive and declaratory relief or statutory damages) and must follow the terms of this Agreement as a court would. To begin an arbitration proceeding, you must send a letter requesting arbitration and describing You’s claim to Logistics 911’s registered agent, which is Corporation Service Company, 1170 Peachtree Street, Atlanta GA 30309. The arbitration will be conducted by the American Arbitration Association (the “AAA”) under its rules, including the AAA’s Commercial Arbitration Rules. Payment of all filing, administration, and arbitrator fees will be governed by the AAA’s rules. YOU AND LOGISTICS 911 EACH AGREE THAT ANY DISPUTE RESOLUTION PROCEEDINGS WILL BE CONDUCTED ONLY ON AN INDIVIDUAL BASIS AND NOT IN A CLASS, CONSOLIDATED, OR REPRESENTATIVE ACTION. If for any reason a claim proceeds in court rather than in arbitration, You and Logistics 911 each waive any right to a jury trial. You and Logistics 911 also both agree that You or Logistics 911 may bring suit in court to enjoin infringement or other misuse of intellectual property rights.
12. Modifications; Waivers.
We may modify this Agreement (including, for the avoidance of doubt, the Program Policies) at any time by posting a revised version in the Portal or by otherwise providing notice to You. You are responsible for reviewing this Agreement regularly to stay informed of any modifications. IF YOU CONTINUES TO PERFORM THE SERVICES AFTER THE EFFECTIVE DATE OF ANY MODIFICATION TO THIS AGREEMENT, YOU AGREES TO BE BOUND BY THE MODIFICATIONS. IF YOU DOES NOT AGREE TO THE MODIFICATIONS, YOU MUST STOP PERFORMING SERVICES. Neither party waives any right under this Agreement by failing to insist on compliance with any of the provisions, or by failing to exercise any of its rights. Any waivers granted are effective only if recorded in writing signed by an authorized representative of the party granting the waiver.
13. Operation Monthly Services Cost.
Logistics Career Specialists and Career Services Partners are responsible for paying the NON REFUNDABLE monthly operation cost. The Logistics Career Specialists can pay and cover the cost based on performance and if the Logistics Career Specialists are not meeting the performance quota of maintaining two (2) active job postings monthly the agreement can be terminated.
