TPI does not accept or consider unsolicited creative ideas, suggestions or materials.

Accordingly, do not send us and we will not accept, consider or review any original creative materials including, but not limited to, songs, software, apps, slogans, merchandising, podcasts, logos, stories or character ideas, screenplays, poems, television ideas, or original artwork. We do value your feedback on our services and products, yet we request that you be specific in your comments on those services and products, and not submit any creative ideas, suggestions or materials.

19. SECURITY PRECAUTIONS
20. JURISDICTION AND APPLICABLE GOVERNING LAW.
You agree that the laws of the State of Nevada (USA), without regard to principles of conflict of laws, will govern the User Agreement and any claim or dispute that has arisen or may arise between you and TPI, except as otherwise stated in the User Agreement.
21. AGREEMENT TO ARBITRATE
You and TPI each agree that any and all disputes or claims that have arisen or may arise between you and TPI relating in any way to or arising out of this or previous versions of the User Agreement, your use of or access to TPI’s Services, or any products or services sold, offered, or purchased through TPI’s Services shall be resolved exclusively through final and binding arbitration, rather than in court, except that you may assert claims in small claims court, if your claims qualify. The Federal Arbitration Act governs the interpretation and enforcement of this Agreement to Arbitrate.
i) Prohibition of Class and Representative Actions and Non-Individualized Relief
YOU AND TPI AGREE THAT EACH OF US MAY BRING CLAIMS AGAINST THE OTHER ONLY ON AN INDIVIDUAL BASIS AND NOT AS A PLAINTIFF OR CLASS MEMBER IN ANY PURPORTED CLASS OR REPRESENTATIVE ACTION OR PROCEEDING. UNLESS BOTH YOU AND TPI AGREE OTHERWISE, THE ARBITRATOR MAY NOT CONSOLIDATE OR JOIN MORE THAN ONE PERSON’S OR PARTY’S CLAIMS, AND MAY NOT OTHERWISE PRESIDE OVER ANY FORM OF A CONSOLIDATED, REPRESENTATIVE, OR CLASS PROCEEDING. ALSO, THE ARBITRATOR MAY AWARD RELIEF (INCLUDING MONETARY, INJUNCTIVE, AND DECLARATORY RELIEF) ONLY IN FAVOR OF THE INDIVIDUAL PARTY SEEKING RELIEF AND ONLY TO THE EXTENT NECESSARY TO PROVIDE RELIEF NECESSITATED BY THAT PARTY’S INDIVIDUAL CLAIM(S). ANY RELIEF AWARDED CANNOT AFFECT OTHER TPI USERS.
ii) Arbitration Procedures
Arbitration uses a neutral arbitrator instead of a judge or jury, and court review of an arbitration award is very limited. An arbitrator should apply the terms of the User Agreement as a court would.
The arbitrator, and not any federal, state, or local court or agency, shall have exclusive authority to resolve any dispute arising out of or relating to the interpretation, applicability, enforceability or formation of this Agreement to Arbitrate, any part of it, or of the User Agreement including, but not limited to, any claim that all or any part of the Agreement to Arbitrate or User Agreement is void or voidable.
The arbitration will be conducted by the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”) under its rules and procedures, including the AAA’s Supplementary Procedures for Consumer-Related Disputes (as applicable), as modified by this Agreement to Arbitrate. The AAA’s rules are available at www.adr.org. A form for initiating arbitration proceedings is available on the AAA’s site at http://www.adr.org. In addition to filing this form with the AAA in accordance with its rules and procedures, you must send a copy of the completed form to us at the following address to initiate arbitration proceedings:
Turning Point International, Inc.
1452 W. Horizon Ridge Parkway
Henderson, Nevada 89012
The arbitration shall be held in the county in which you reside or at another mutually agreed location. If the value of the relief sought is $10,000 or less, you or TPI may elect to have the arbitration conducted by telephone or based solely on written submissions, which election shall be binding on you and TPI subject to the arbitrator’s discretion to require an in-person hearing, if the circumstances warrant. Attendance at an in-person hearing may be made by telephone by you and/or TPI, unless the arbitrator requires otherwise.
The arbitrator will decide the substance of all claims in accordance with the laws of the State of Nevada, including recognized principles of equity, and will honor all claims of privilege recognized by law. The arbitrator shall not be bound by rulings in prior arbitrations involving different TPI users, but is bound by rulings in prior arbitrations involving the same TPI user to the extent required by applicable law. The arbitrator’s award shall be final and binding and judgment on the award rendered by the arbitrator may be entered in any court having jurisdiction thereof.
iii) Costs of Arbitration
Payment of all filing, administration and arbitrator fees will be governed by the AAA’s rules, unless otherwise stated in this Agreement to Arbitrate. If the value of the relief sought is $10,000 or less, at your request, TPI will pay all filing, administration, and arbitrator fees associated with the arbitration. Any request for payment of fees by TPI should be submitted by mail to the AAA along with your Demand for Arbitration and TPI will make arrangements to pay all necessary fees directly to the AAA. If the value of the relief sought is more than $10,000 and you are able to demonstrate that the costs of arbitration will be prohibitive as compared to the costs of litigation, TPI will pay as much of the filing, administration, and arbitrator fees as the arbitrator deems necessary to prevent the arbitration from being cost-prohibitive. In the event the arbitrator determines the claim(s) you assert in the arbitration to be frivolous, you agree to reimburse TPI for all fees associated with the arbitration paid by TPI on your behalf, which you otherwise would be obligated to pay under the AAA’s rules.
With the exception of any of the provisions in Section i of this Agreement to Arbitrate (“Prohibition of Class and Representative Actions and Non-Individualized Relief”), if an arbitrator or court decides that any part of this Agreement to Arbitrate is invalid or unenforceable, the other parts of this Agreement to Arbitrate shall still apply. If an arbitrator or court decides that any of the provisions in Section i of this Agreement to Arbitrate (“Prohibition of Class and Representative Actions and Non-Individualized Relief”) is invalid or unenforceable, then the entirety of this Agreement to Arbitrate shall be null and void. The remainder of the Agreement and its Legal Disputes Section will continue to apply.
v) Opt-Out Procedure
IF YOU ARE A NEW TPI USER, YOU CAN CHOOSE TO REJECT THIS AGREEMENT TO ARBITRATE (“OPT-OUT”) BY MAILING US A WRITTEN OPT-OUT NOTICE (“OPT-OUT NOTICE”). THE OPT-OUT NOTICE MUST BE POSTMARKED NO LATER THAN 30 DAYS AFTER THE DATE YOU ACCEPT THE USER AGREEMENT FOR THE FIRST TIME. YOU MUST MAIL THE OPT-OUT NOTICE TO:

vi) Future Changes to the Agreement to Arbitrate
Notwithstanding any provision in the Agreement to the contrary, you and we agree that if we make any change to this Agreement to Arbitrate (other than a change to any notice address or site link provided herein) in the future, that change shall not apply to any claim that was filed in a legal proceeding against TPI prior to the effective date of the change. The change shall apply to all other disputes or claims governed by the Agreement to Arbitrate that have arisen or may arise between you and TPI. We will notify you of changes to this Agreement to Arbitrate by posting the amended terms on www.judimoreo.com at least 30 days before the effective date of the changes and/or by email. If you do not agree to these amended terms, you may close your account within the 30 day period and you will not be bound by the new terms.
Moreover, if we seek to terminate the Agreement to Arbitrate as included in the User Agreement, any such termination shall not be effective until 30 days after the version of the User Agreement not containing the Agreement to Arbitrate is posted to http://www.judimoreo.com, and shall not be effective as to any claim that was filed in a legal proceeding against TPI prior to the effective date of termination.
22. JUDICIAL FORUM.

You and TPI agree to submit to the personal jurisdiction of the courts located within Clark County, Nevada for the purpose of litigating all such claims or disputes.
