GOVERNING LAW

This Privacy Policy shall be governed by the laws of the State of New York of the United States of America, without regard to its conflict of law provisions. Any dispute concerning this Privacy Policy or your use of this Website shall be submitted to, and finally settled by, binding arbitration in New York County, State of New York within one (1) year from the date that the cause of action arose (or, if multiple cause of actions are involved, from the date that the first cause of action arose), with such arbitration conducted pursuant to the then prevailing rules of the American Arbitration Association. To the fullest extent permitted by law, no arbitration brought pursuant hereto shall be joined to any other action or any other arbitration. In the event that any portion of this Privacy Policy is deemed unenforceable, unlawful or void by a tribunal of competent jurisdiction, in any jurisdiction for any reason because of the scope, duration or area of its applicability or for other reasons, unless narrowed by construction, such provision shall for purposes of such jurisdiction only, be construed as if such invalid, prohibited or unenforceable provision had been more narrowly drawn so as not to be invalid, prohibited or unenforceable (or if such language cannot be drawn narrowly enough, the tribunal making any such determination shall have the power to modify, to the extent necessary to make such provision or provisions enforceable in such jurisdiction, such scope, duration or area or all of them, and such provision shall then be applicable in such modified form). If, notwithstanding the foregoing, any such provision would be held to be invalid, prohibited or unenforceable in any jurisdiction for any reason, such provision, as to such jurisdiction only, shall be ineffective to the extent of such invalidity, prohibition or unenforceability, without invalidating the remaining provisions. No narrowed construction, court-modification or invalidation of any provision shall affect the construction, validity or enforceability of such provision in any other jurisdiction. No waiver by Soteria™ of any provision of this Privacy Policy shall be deemed a further or continuing waiver of such provision, and Soteria™’s failure to assert any right or demand compliance with any provision of this Privacy Policy shall not be deemed to constitute a waiver of any such right or provision. Furthermore, if any portion of this Privacy Policy is deemed unenforceable, unlawful or void by a tribunal of competent jurisdiction, then that portion of the Privacy Policy will be deemed severable and will not affect the enforceability or validity of the remaining portions of this Privacy Policy.

Notwithstanding anything to the contrary set forth in Privacy Policy, Soteria™ may at any time seek injunctive or other appropriate relief against you and/or against others, in any state or federal court in New York County, State of New York or any other court in any jurisdiction, in the event that Soteria™ believes that there is a violation, or a threatened violation, of any of Soteria™’s intellectual property rights and, in such case, you hereby irrevocably consent to the exclusive jurisdiction and venue of such court for the purpose of any such dispute(s), and waive any claim or defense that any such court lacks jurisdiction due to the laying venue or otherwise, or that such forum is not convenient or proper.
