The company shall have the right to select defense counsel and control the defense with you incurring all costs and expenses associated with any claim, mediation, arbitration, litigation, or other dispute.

Florida Law will govern any dispute related to these terms or your use of the forum.
You and the company agree to seek injunctive relief related to these terms only in state or federal court for the jurisdiction associated with Clearwater, FL, i.e. Pinellas County State Court or the Middle District of Florida, Tampa Division, depending on whether federal diversity jurisdiction exists. Neither you nor the company will object to jurisdiction, forum, or venue in those courts.
Other than to seek an injunction or for claims under the Computer Fraud and Abuse Act, you and the company will resolve any dispute by submitting said dispute to binding arbitration before one arbitrator with the American Arbitration Association. Arbitration will follow the AAA’s Commercial Arbitration Rules and Supplementary Procedures for Consumer Related Disputes. Arbitration will be held in Clearwater, FL. You will settle any dispute as an individual, and not as part of a class action or other representative proceeding, whether as the plaintiff or a class member. No arbitrator will consolidate any dispute with any other arbitration without the company’s permission.
Each of the parties shall bear their own upfront costs and expenses associated with the arbitration, except that the prevailing party at the arbitration shall be entitled to recover all costs, attorneys’ fees and expenses it incurred as a result of the arbitration, whether incurred before or during arbitration. The prevailing party shall also be entitled to recover any attorneys’ fees and costs incurred in arbitrating the entitlement to attorneys’ fees and costs, as well as in determining or quantifying the amount of attorneys’ fees and costs due to it. The reasonable costs that the prevailing party shall be entitled to recover shall include any costs that are taxable pursuant to any applicable statute, rule or guideline (including, but not limited to, the Statewide Uniform Guidelines for Taxation of Costs), as well as costs not taxable thereunder.
If a provision of these terms is unenforceable as written, but could be changed to make it enforceable, that provision should be modified to the minimum extent necessary to make it enforceable. Otherwise, that provision should be removed without effect on the remainder of the terms.
