Equitable Relief

You acknowledge and agree that any violation or attempted violation of any of these Terms would cause Digi Search irreparable injury.  In the event of a violation or attempted violation of any of these Terms, Digi Search shall have, in addition to its remedies at law and those set forth herein, the immediate right to injunctive and other equitable relief to prevent the violation or attempted violation of any of these Terms.  To the extent that any of the provisions of this paragraph are held invalid by a court of law, then any invalid provision may be modified by said court so as to allow the maximum, reasonable restrictions allowed under the law. 

Choice of Law, Arbitration and Jurisdiction for Disputes 

To the fullest extent allowable under applicable law, any controversy or claim arising out of your use of or other interaction with the Services, except (i) as otherwise provided herein, or (ii) for any such controversies or claims arising out of either party’s intellectual, confidential property rights or otherwise for which equitable relief is sought, shall be settled by binding arbitration in Chicago, Illinois, or at such other location as may be mutually agreed upon by the parties, in accordance with the procedural rules for commercial disputes set forth in the Comprehensive Arbitration Rules and Procedures of JAMS (“JAMS Rules and Procedures”) then prevailing, and judgment upon the award rendered by the arbitrator(s) may be entered in any court having jurisdiction thereof. The arbitrator shall be selected pursuant to the JAMS Rules and Procedures. The arbitrator shall apply Illinois law consistent with the Federal Arbitration Act and applicable statutes of limitations, and shall honor claims of privilege recognized at law. In the event that the claimant is able to demonstrate that the costs of arbitration will be prohibitive as compared to the costs of litigation, Digi Search will pay as much of the claimant’s filing and hearing fees in connection with the arbitration as the arbitrator deems necessary to prevent the arbitration from being cost-prohibitive as compared to litigation. If any part of this arbitration provision is deemed to be invalid, unenforceable or illegal (other than that claims will not be arbitrated on a class or representative basis), or otherwise conflicts with the rules and procedures established by JAMS, then the balance of this arbitration provision shall remain in effect and shall be construed in accordance with its terms as if the invalid, unenforceable, illegal or conflicting provision were not contained herein. If, however, the portion that is deemed invalid, unenforceable or illegal is that claims will not be arbitrated on a class or representative basis, then the entirety of this arbitration provision shall be null and void, and neither claimant nor Digi Search shall be entitled to arbitrate their dispute. Upon filing a demand for arbitration, all parties to such arbitration shall have the right of discovery, which discovery shall be completed within sixty (60) days after the demand for arbitration is made, unless further extended by mutual agreement of the parties.  THE ARBITRATION OF DISPUTES PURSUANT TO THIS PARAGRAPH SHALL BE IN YOUR INDIVIDUAL CAPACITY, AND NOT AS A PLAINTIFF OR CLASS MEMBER IN ANY PURPORTED CLASS OR REPRESENTATIVE PROCEEDING. THE ARBITRATOR MAY NOT CONSOLIDATE OR JOIN THE CLAIMS OF OTHER PERSONS OR PARTIES WHO MAY BE SIMILARLY SITUATED.  DO NOT USE THE SERVICES IF YOU DO NOT AGREE TO HAVE ANY CLAIM OR CONTROVERSY ARBITRATED IN ACCORDANCE WITH THESE OFFICIAL RULES.

Governing Law & Jurisdiction 

All disputes in connection with the Services, shall be governed by, and construed in accordance with, the laws of the State of Illinois, without giving effect to the conflict of laws rules thereof. Any matters or proceedings which are not subject to arbitration as set forth above and/or for entering any judgment on an arbitration award, shall take place in the State of Illinois in the state or federal courts in Chicago, Illinois and you consent to the exclusive jurisdiction of such courts.

Severability

If any of these Terms shall be deemed invalid, void, or for any reason unenforceable, those terms shall be deemed severable and shall not affect the validity and enforceability of any remaining terms, it being the intent and agreement of the parties that the Terms shall be deemed amended by modifying such provision to the extent necessary to render it valid, legal and enforceable while preserving its intent or, if such modification is not possible, by substituting therefore another provision that is valid, legal and enforceable so as to materially give effect to Digi Search’s intent. Failure of Digi Search to exercise or enforce any right or provision of this Agreement shall not constitute a waiver of such right or provision in that or any other instance.

Modification of these Terms 

We will notify you of changes to these Terms by posting the amended terms on Digi Search’s website, at least thirty (30) days before the effective date of the changes.  If you have provided us with your email address or with consent to contact you via text message or other means, we will also notify you of material changes to these Terms via those means at least thirty (30) days before the effective date of the changes to the address/number you most recently provided to us.  We encourage you to keep the contact information you provide to us current, and to promptly notify us of any changes, so that you may receive any notices we send to you regarding material changes to these Terms.   If you do not agree to any changes, you should stop using the Services and you will not be bound by the new terms.  Otherwise, the new terms will take effect after thirty (30) days.

Third Party Beneficiaries

You agree that our service providers, licensors, or others involved in creating or providing the Services are third party beneficiaries to these Terms and may rely upon the provisions of these Terms, including, but not limited to, the provisions concerning Indemnification, No Warranties, and No Liability.  Additionally, you acknowledge and agree that Google is a third party beneficiary of the User License, and that Google will have the right (and will be deemed to have accepted the right) to enforce the Terms against you as a third party beneficiary thereof.
