13. Export Controls and Designated Persons
The Site is operated from the United States and it is possible that software available at or through the Site may be subject to United States export controls administered by the United States Commerce Department or sanctions programs administered by the United States Treasury Department. No software available at or through the Site may be downloaded or otherwise exported or re-exported (a) into (or to a national or resident of) any country subject to a United States or United Nation embargo or sanction; (b) to anyone on the United States Treasury Department’s list of Specially Designated Nationals and Blocked Persons (“SDN List”); (c) to anyone on the United States Commerce Department’s Denied Persons List or Entity List; or (d) to anyone subject to the same or similar restrictions as the foregoing. By downloading or using any software available at or through the Site, you represent and warrant that you are not located in, under the control of, or a national or resident of any such country or on any of the above lists or subject to such restrictions.
Travel agents and anyone else using the Site for making reservations or travel arrangements are prohibited from making travel arrangements for “designated persons” that are government officials or residents of certain embargoed countries, or terrorists or drug traffickers or other persons or entities whose names are published on the SDN List. You agree to use all reasonable efforts not to arrange for any such designated persons to stay at, use, or tour any of our resorts, casinos, facilities, products, or services.
Any dispute, claim, or controversy arising out of or relating to this Agreement, including the determination of the scope or applicability of this Agreement to arbitrate, shall be determined by individual arbitration in Washoe County, Nevada before a single neutral arbitrator. The arbitration shall be administered by JAMS pursuant to its Comprehensive Arbitration Rules and Procedures. Any appeal shall be heard and decided by a panel of three neutral arbitrators. All arbitrators shall be retired judges or justices of any Nevada state or federal court, and shall in their substantive rulings (as opposed to procedural or discovery-related rulings that are otherwise governed by the JAMS Comprehensive Arbitration Rules and Procedures), apply the laws of the State of Nevada without giving effect to any choice or conflict of law provision or rules that would cause the application of the laws of any jurisdiction other than the State of Nevada. The award of the arbitrator(s) shall be binding and final on all parties. The arbitrator(s) shall award to the prevailing party, if any, the costs and attorneys’ fees reasonably incurred by the prevailing party in connection with the arbitration. If the arbitrator(s) determine a party to be the prevailing party under circumstances where the prevailing party won on some but not all of the claims and counterclaims, the arbitrator(s) may award the prevailing party an appropriate percentage of the costs and attorneys’ fees reasonably incurred by the prevailing party in connection with the arbitration. Judgment on the award rendered may be entered in any court having jurisdiction. The arbitrators may not award any punitive, incidental, indirect, special, or consequential damages, including, but not limited to, damages for lost profits.
Any dispute resolution proceeding arising out of or relating to this Agreement, including arbitration, will be conducted only on an individual basis and not in a class or representative action on behalf of others. There is no right for any dispute hereunder to be brought or heard as a class arbitration, class action, or private attorney general action or for the consolidation of arbitrations. Notwithstanding any other provision in this Agreement, and without waiving any party’s right to appeal, if this waiver of class action is held invalid or unenforceable, then the entire Arbitration clause in Section 14 (with the exception of this sentence) shall not apply.
If any provision of this Agreement is found to be invalid or unenforceable, such provision shall be severed from the remainder of the Agreement, which shall remain in full force and effect. No waiver of any breach or default of the Agreement shall be deemed to be a waiver of any preceding or subsequent breach or default.
