Any claim or controversy arising out of or relating to the use of StreamSmart, to the goods or services provided by StreamSmart, or to any acts or omissions for which you may contend StreamSmart is liable, including but not limited to any claim or controversy (“Dispute”), shall be finally, and exclusively, settled by arbitration in New York, from which arbitration there shall be no appeal. The arbitration shall be held before one arbitrator under the Commercial Arbitration rules of the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”) in force at that time. The arbitrator shall be selected pursuant to the AAA rules. The arbitrator shall apply the substantive law of the State of Florida, except that the interpretation and enforcement of this arbitration provision shall be governed by the Federal Arbitration Act. To begin the arbitration process, a party must make a written demand therefore. Each part shall bear its own costs and attorneys’ fees. Any judgment upon the award rendered by the arbitrators may be entered in any court of competent jurisdiction in Florida. The arbitrator shall not have the power to award damages in connection with any Dispute in excess of actual compensatory damages and shall not multiply actual damages or award consequential, punitive or exemplary damages, and each party irrevocably waives any claim thereto.

Waiver and Severability of Terms. The failure of StreamSmart to exercise or enforce any right or provision of the TOS shall not constitute a waiver of such right or provision.
