These Terms and any disputes related to them or to your use of the Services will be governed by the laws of the State of Florida without regard to its conflict of laws provisions. You hereby consent to the exclusive jurisdiction and venue of courts in Walton County, Florida, USA, in all disputes arising out of or relating to the use of the Services.
You and WildStar agree that any dispute, claim or controversy arising out of or relating to these Terms or the breach, termination, enforcement, interpretation or validity thereof or the use of the Services (collectively, “Disputes”) will be settled by binding arbitration, except that each party retains the right to bring an individual action in small claims court and the right to seek injunctive or other equitable relief in a court of competent jurisdiction to prevent the actual or threatened infringement, misappropriation or violation of a party’s copyrights, trademarks, trade secrets, patents or other intellectual property rights. YOU ACKNOWLEDGE AND AGREE THAT YOU AND WILDSTAR ARE EACH WAIVING THE RIGHT TO A TRIAL BY JURY OR TO PARTICIPATE AS A PLAINTIFF OR CLASS MEMBER IN ANY PURPORTED CLASS ACTION OR REPRESENTATIVE PROCEEDING. Further, unless both you and WildStar otherwise agree in writing, the arbitrator may not consolidate more than one person's claims, and may not otherwise preside over any form of any class or representative proceeding. If this specific paragraph is held unenforceable, then the entirety of this “Dispute Resolution” section will be deemed void. Except as provided in the preceding sentence, this “Dispute Resolution” section will survive any termination of these Terms.
The arbitration will be administered by the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”) in accordance with the Commercial Arbitration Rules and the Supplementary Procedures for Consumer Related Disputes (the “AAA Rules”) then in effect, except as modified by this “Dispute Resolution” section. (The AAA Rules are available at www.adr.org or by calling the AAA at 1-800-778-7879.) Your responsibility to pay any AAA filing, administrative and arbitrator fees will be solely as set forth in the AAA Rules.
The Site may contain hyperlinks to websites operated by parties other than WildStar. Such hyperlinks are provided for your reference only. We do not control such websites and are not responsible for their contents or the privacy or other practices of such websites. You are responsible for and assume all risk arising from your use or reliance of any third-party websites. Our inclusion of hyperlinks to such websites does not imply any endorsement of the material on such websites or any association with their operators.
Headings are for reference purposes only and do not limit the scope or extent of such Section. The failure of WildStar to enforce any right or provision of these Terms will not constitute a waiver of future enforcement of that right or provision. The waiver of any such right or provision will be effective only if in writing and signed by a duly authorized representative of WildStar. Except as expressly set forth in these Terms, the exercise by either party of any of its remedies under these Terms will be without prejudice to its other remedies under these Terms or otherwise. Except as otherwise expressly provided herein, if for any reason a court of competent jurisdiction finds any provision of these Terms invalid or unenforceable, that provision will be enforced to the maximum extent permissible and the other provisions of these Terms will remain in full force and effect.
Any notices or other communications permitted or required hereunder, including those regarding modifications to these Terms, will be in writing and given by WildStar, as determined by WildStar in its sole and absolute discretion, (i) via email (in each case to the address that you provide) or (ii) by posting through the Services. For notices made by e-mail, the date of receipt will be deemed the date on which such notice is transmitted.

Notice and Procedure for Making Claims of Intellectual Property Infringement
WildStar respects the intellectual property rights of others. We have a policy of limiting access to the Services and terminating the accounts of users who infringe the intellectual property rights of others. If you believe that anything on the Site or portion of the Services infringe any copyright that you own or control, you may notify WildStar’s Designated Agent as follows:
Designated Agent: SOM1101 LLC d/b/a WildStar Networks, ATTN: Legal
Address: 355 Bulldog Rd Ste. 101A, Freeport, FL 32439
Please see 17 U.S.C. §512(c)(3) for the requirements of a proper notification. Also, please note that if you knowingly misrepresent that any activity or material on the Services is infringing, you may be liable to WildStar for certain costs and damages.
If any provision or part of a provision of these Terms is unlawful, void or unenforceable, that provision or part of the provision is deemed severable from these Terms and does not affect the validity and enforceability of any remaining provisions. These Terms and any applicable Additional Terms constitute the entire agreement between you and WildStar relating to your access to and use of the Services. The failure of WildStar to exercise or enforce any right or provision of these Terms will not operate as a waiver of such right or provision. The section titles in these Terms are for convenience only and have no legal or contractual effect. Except as otherwise provided herein, these Terms are intended solely for the benefit of the parties and are not intended to confer third-party beneficiary rights upon any other person or entity. You agree that communications and transactions between us may be conducted electronically.
