This Limitation of Liability shall be to the maximum extent permitted by applicable law.

14) Governing Law and Disputes

Any unresolved controversy or claim arising out of or relating to these Terms, except as (i) otherwise provided in these Terms, or (ii) any such controversies or claims arising out of either your or Split Bread’s intellectual property rights for which a provisional remedy or equitable relief is sought, shall be submitted to arbitration by one arbitrator mutually agreed upon by the parties, and if no agreement can be reached within 30 days after names of potential arbitrators have been proposed by the American Arbitration Association (the “AAA”), then by one arbitrator chosen by the AAA.  The arbitration shall take place in San Francisco, California, in accordance with the AAA rules then in effect, and judgment upon any award rendered in such arbitration will be binding and may be entered in any court having jurisdiction thereof.  You and Split Bread each consent to personal jurisdiction for any equitable action sought in the federal or state courts located in San Francisco, California.

Any proceedings or arbitration to resolve any dispute in any forum will be conducted solely on an individual basis. Neither you nor Split Bread will seek to have any dispute heard as a class action, private attorney general action, or in any other proceeding in which either party acts or proposes to act in a representative capacity. No arbitration or proceeding will be combined with another without the prior written consent of all parties to all affected arbitrations or proceedings.

These Terms shall be governed by, and will be construed under, the laws of the State of California, U.S.A., without regard to choice of law principles.

The Site is controlled within the United States of America.

17) Miscellaneous

These Terms set forth the entire understanding and agreement between you and Split Bread with respect to the subject matter hereof. If any provision of the Terms is found by a court of competent jurisdiction to be invalid, the parties nevertheless agree that the court should endeavor to give effect to the parties’ intentions as reflected in the provision, and the other provisions of the Terms shall remain in full force and effect. Headings are for reference only and in no way define, limit, construe or describe the scope or extent of such section. Split Bread’s failure to act with respect to any failure by you or others to comply with these Terms does not waive its right to act with respect to subsequent or similar failures. You may not assign or transfer your rights or obligations under these Terms without the prior written consent of Split Bread, and any assignment or transfer in violation of this provision shall be null and void. There are no third party beneficiaries to these Terms.
