Choice of Law; Jurisdiction
These Terms and the relationship between Client and TEKEASE will be governed by the laws of the State of Illinois, without regard to its conflict of law provisions. Client agrees to submit to the personal jurisdiction of the state and federal courts located in Illinois, and waive any objections thereto. Client further agree that any dispute arising from or related to Client’s use of the Service must be brought exclusively in the state or federal courts located in Peoria County, Illinois, unless a Illinois mandatory venue statute applies to the dispute, in which case the Illinois County of mandatory venue shall be the exclusive jurisdiction for such dispute.
Notice. We may provide notice to Client by posting on the Site, or sending Client notices via e-mail or regular mail.

TEKEASE will have the right, in its sole discretion, transfer or assign all or any part of its rights under these Terms of Service and will have the right to delegate or use third party contractors to fulfill its duties and obligations under these Terms of Service.
Severability. If any clause or provision in these Terms of Service is held by a court of competent jurisdiction to be invalid in whole or in part, then the remaining clauses and provisions, or portions thereof, will nevertheless be and remain in full force and effect, and the parties will substitute for the invalid provision a valid and binding provision resembling the invalid provision as closely as possible in intent and economic effect. Captions. The captions of each section are added as a matter of convenience only and will be considered of no effect in the construction of any provision of these Terms of Service. Attorneys’ fees. If any party hereto will bring any suit or action against another for relief, declaratory or otherwise, arising out of these Terms of Service, the prevailing party will have and recover against the other party, in addition to all court costs and disbursements, such sum as the court may adjudge to be reasonable attorneys’ fees.
Survival. The Disclaimer of Warranties, Indemnification and Limitation of Liability sections of these Terms of Service will survive the termination of these Terms of Service.
Waiver. Failure to insist upon strict compliance with any of the terms, covenants and conditions hereof will not be deemed a waiver of such terms, covenants and conditions, nor will any waiver or relinquishment of any right or power hereunder at any one or more times be deemed a waiver or relinquishment of such right or power at any other time or times. No waiver will be valid unless in writing and signed by an authorized officer of TEKEASE.
Limitation on Actions. Regardless of any statute or law to the contrary, any claim or cause of action arising out of or related to use of the Sites or the Terms of Service must be filed within one (1) year after such claim or cause of action arose or be forever barred.
TEKEASE and Client agree to exercise best efforts to resolve all disputes and claims between us through good faith negotiation. TEKEASE and Client further agree that any such dispute or claim that cannot be resolved by negotiations shall be resolved by binding arbitration administered by the American Arbitration Association (”AAA”) under its Commercial Arbitration Rules in effect at the time the dispute is submitted for resolution (the ”Rules”), as may be modified by this Agreement. This agreement to arbitrate is intended to be broadly interpreted.
Judgment on the award rendered by the arbitrator(s) may be entered in any court having proper jurisdiction. Such arbitration shall be held in the State in which the Services are billed. In the event Client is billed by TEKEASE for Services in of multiple states, such arbitration shall be held in the State of Client’s primary service address. Within twenty (20) days of the issuance of a written notice to arbitrate by one party to the other, as provided by the Rules, the parties shall jointly select one (1) independent arbitrator licensed to practice law. If we cannot jointly agree on an arbitrator within the specified 20-day period, then the selection shall promptly be made by the AAA in accordance with the Rules and the criteria set forth above.
The Federal Arbitration Act, 9 U.S.C. §1, et seq., governs the interpretation and enforcement of this provision.
In no event shall the arbitrator have the authority to make any award that is in excess of, or contrary to, what this Agreement provides. Notwithstanding the foregoing, either party may bring an individual action small claims court.
The arbitrator may award injunctive relief only in favor of the individual party seeking relief and only to the extent necessary to provide relief warranted by that party’s individual claim; furthermore, unless Client and TEKEASE agree otherwise, the arbitrator may not consolidate more than one person’s claims, and may not otherwise preside over any form of a representative or collective proceeding. If this specific provision is found to be unenforceable, then the arbitration provision shall be null and void.
CLIENT AGREES THAT, BY ENTERING INTO THIS ARBITRATION AGREEMENT, CLIENT AND TEKEASE ARE EACH WAIVING THE RIGHT TO A TRIAL BY JURY OR TO PARTICIPATE IN A CLASS ACTION. TEKEASE AND CLIENT AGREE THAT EACH MAY BRING CLAIMS AGAINST THE OTHER ONLY IN AN INDIVIDUAL CAPACITY AND NOT AS A PLAINTIFF OR CLASS MEMBER IN ANY PURPORTED CLASS OR REPRESENTATIVE PROCEEDING.
These Terms, and any other policies or guidelines referenced herein, constitute the entire agreement between TEKEASE and Client in connection with the Service. These Terms supersede any prior or contemporaneous written or oral communications, proposals, representations and agreements between Client and TEKEASE with respect to the subject matter of these Terms. If any provision of these Terms is found by a court of competent jurisdiction to be invalid, the parties nevertheless agree that the court should endeavor to give effect to the parties’ intentions as reflected in the provision, and the other provisions of these Terms shall remain in full force and effect. Client agrees that regardless of any statute or law to the contrary, any claim or cause of action arising out of or related to use of the Service, Client’s account with respect to the Service, or these Terms must be filed within one (1) year after such claim or cause of action arose or be forever barred (unless such limitation is contrary to the public policy of a particular state, in which case the applicable limitations period shall be the shortest limitation period permissible under that state’s law). The failure of TEKEASE to exercise or enforce any right or provision of these Terms will not constitute a waiver of such right or provision. If Client violate any of these Terms, TEKEASE may in its sole discretion terminate or suspend Client’s access and use of the Service immediately without notice. Client agrees that TEKEASE shall not be liable to Client or any third-party for any termination of Client’s access to the Service. TEKEASE may, but Client may not, assign rights or obligations under the contract embodied by these Terms.
