You agree to comply with such laws and regulations governing export, re-export, transfer, and use of the Service, and you shall obtain all required U.S. and local authorizations, permits, or licenses.

The Service is “commercial computer software” as defined in the applicable provisions of the Federal Acquisition Regulation (the “FAR”) and supplements thereto, including the Department of Defense FAR Supplements (the “DFARS”). The Service was developed entirely at private expense and no part of the Service was first produced in the performance of a Government contract.

This Agreement, as well as any dispute or claim arising out of or related to this Agreement, its subject matter, or its formation (in each case, including non-contractual disputes or claims) is governed by and shall be construed in accordance with the laws of the State of Utah, without giving effect to any choice or conflict of law provision or rule. The United Nations Convention on the International Sales of Goods does not apply to this Agreement.
In the event of any conflict or claim arising out of or relating to any provision of this Agreement or breach thereof, the parties shall make a good faith effort to settle such conflict amicably between themselves. Any such conflict which the parties are unable to resolve shall be settled in accordance with the rules of the American Arbitration Association, except as set forth herein. The award or decision shall be rendered by a single arbitrator. A single arbitrator shall be agreed upon by you and Teem, or if you and Teem cannot agree upon an arbitrator within 30 days, then you and Teem agree that a single arbitrator shall be appointed by the American Arbitration Association. Such arbitration proceedings shall be conducted in Salt Lake City, Utah. The award or decision through arbitration shall be binding upon you and Teem and may be incorporated into and thereupon enforced as an order of a court of competent jurisdiction. Any and all proceedings to resolve claims or conflicts will be conducted only on an individual basis and not in a class, consolidated, or representative action, and you agree to this limitation as a condition of using the Service. If, for any reason, a claim proceeds in court rather than in arbitration, you waive any right to a jury trial. The Federal Arbitration Act, federal arbitration law and the United Nations Convention on the Recognition and Enforcement of Foreign Arbitral Awards of 1958 apply to this Agreement and any arbitral award granted in connection with a claim. An arbitration decision may be confirmed by any court of competent jurisdiction. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary herein, you may opt out of the foregoing arbitration provision by notifying Teem of your desire to opt out, which writing must be dated, signed and delivered by U.S. Mail or by any nationally recognized delivery service (e.g., UPS, Federal Express, etc.), or by hand delivery to: Legal Counsel, 224 S 200 W #100, Salt Lake City, UT 84101. In order to be effective, the writing must clearly indicate your intention to opt out of the foregoing arbitration provision, and the envelope containing the signed writing must be received (if delivered by hand) or postmarked within 30 days of the date you enter into this Agreement. Should you not opt out of the foregoing arbitration provision within such 30-day period, you shall be bound by the terms of the foregoing arbitration provision. You have the right to consult with counsel of Subscriber’s choice concerning the foregoing arbitration provision.
Any remedy of Teem set forth in this Agreement is in addition to any other remedy afforded to Teem under applicable Law or otherwise. Teem’s failure to exercise or enforce any right or provision of this Agreement will not constitute a waiver of such right or provision. If any provision of this Agreement is held to be unenforceable, then that provision is to be construed either by modifying it to the minimum extent necessary to make it enforceable (if permitted by law) or disregarding it (if not). If an unenforceable provision is modified or disregarded in accordance with this Section, the rest of this Agreement is to remain in effect as written, and the unenforceable provision is to remain as written in any circumstances other than those in which the provision is held to be unenforceable. You may not assign or otherwise transfer any of your rights or obligations under this Agreement without Teem’s prior written consent. Any purported assignment in violation of this Section shall be void. Teem may freely assign or otherwise transfer its rights or obligations under this Agreement. The terms and conditions of this Agreement shall apply to and be binding upon the approved successors and permitted assigns of the parties hereto. The parties are independent contractors. This Agreement does not create a partnership, franchise, joint venture, agency, fiduciary, or employment relationship between the parties. This Agreement does not and is not intended to confer any rights or remedies upon any person other than you and Teem and any additional parties indemnified hereunder.
