Learning Tree may use its Affiliates or subcontractors to perform all or any part of the Services, but Learning Tree remains responsible under the Agreement for work performed by its Affiliates and subcontractors to the same extent as if Learning Tree performed the Services itself.
14. FORCE MAJEURE
Neither party will be in violation of the Agreement if the failure to perform the obligation is due to an extraordinary event beyond its control, such as significant failure of a part of the power grid, Internet failure, natural disaster, war, riot, epidemic, strikes or labor action, terrorism (“Force Majeure”).
If a Force Majeure event occurs, this Agreement shall be automatically suspended during the time the Force Majeure event continues, and neither party shall be liable to the other for non-performance or delay in the performance of required obligation(s) due to the Force Majeure event, provided the non-performing party gives prompt written notice of its inability to perform specified obligation(s) due to the event and uses reasonable efforts to resume its performance of its obligation(s) as soon as possible. Notwithstanding the foregoing, in no event shall a Force Majeure event excuse or delay a party’s obligation(s) with respect to confidentiality or Intellectual Property rights or payment of any amount due or owning.
15. GOVERNING LAW
15.1 The Agreement shall be governed by the laws of the Commonwealth of Virginia, exclusive of any choice of law principle that would require the application of the law of a different jurisdiction, and the laws of the United States of America, including the Federal Arbitration Act, 9 U.S.C. §1, et seq. You acknowledge and agree to the exclusive jurisdiction of the courts located in Fairfax County in the Commonwealth of Virginia. Any dispute or claim relating to or arising out of the Agreement, other than seeking immediate injunctive relief, shall be submitted to binding arbitration. The arbitration shall be conducted in the state and county (or equivalent geographic location) of the non-asserting party’s principal business offices in accordance with the Commercial Arbitration Rules of the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”) in effect at the time the dispute or claim arose. The arbitration shall be conducted by one arbitrator from AAA or a comparable arbitration service. The arbitrator shall issue a reasoned award with findings of fact and conclusions of law. Either party may bring an action in any court of competent jurisdiction to compel arbitration under this Agreement, or to enforce an arbitration award. Neither a party nor an arbitrator may disclose the existence, content, or results of any arbitration hereunder without the prior written consent of both parties.
Either party shall be permitted to appeal the final award under the AAA’s Optional Appellate Arbitration Rules in effect at the time the dispute or claim arose. Grounds for vacating the award shall include, in addition to those enumerated under the Federal Arbitration Act, that the arbitrator committed errors of law that are material and prejudicial. The appeal shall be determined upon the written documents submitted by the parties, with no oral argument. After the appellate rights described herein have been exercised or waived, the parties shall have no further right to challenge the award.
15.2 Notwithstanding the exclusive jurisdiction provision above, you agree that Learning Tree may seek to enforce any judgment anywhere in the world where you may have assets. No claim may be brought as a class or collective action, nor may you assert such a claim as a member of a class or collective action that is brought by another claimant. Each of us agrees that Learning Tree will not bring a claim under the Agreement more than two years after the time that the claim accrued. The Agreement shall not be governed by the United Nations Convention on the International Sale of Goods.
15.3 The prevailing party in any action or proceeding relating to this Agreement shall be entitled to recover reasonable legal fees and costs, including attorney’s fees.
15.4 The parties hereby agree to waive their respective rights to a jury trial of any claim or cause of action related to or arising out of this Agreement. The parties each acknowledge that the foregoing waiver is a material inducement for each party to enter into a business relationship, that each party has already relied on the waiver in entering into this Agreement and that each will continue to rely on the waiver in their related future dealings. Each party further warrants and represents that each has had the opportunity to have legal counsel review the waiver. The waiver is irrevocable, meaning that it may not be modified either orally or in writing, and the waiver will apply to any subsequent amendments, renewals, supplements or modifications to this Agreement.
16.1 Some terms are incorporated into the Agreement by reference to pages on the Learning Tree website and Learning Tree may revise those terms from time to time (including these Terms of Service). Such revisions will be effective and supersede and form part of the Agreement as of the time (i) you enter into a new Service Order referencing the terms subject to the revisions or (ii) a Service Order automatically renews pursuant to the Agreement in which case you acknowledge that you have reviewed and accept the then-current version of the terms as of the date of the renewal. If there is a conflict between the terms of the Agreement, the documents will govern in the following order: the Service Order, then these Terms of Service. The headings or captions in the Agreement are for convenience only. If over time you enter into multiple Agreements for Services, then the most recent Agreement terms referenced in the Service Order(s) will govern the entirety of the Services.
16.2 Unless otherwise expressly permitted in the Agreement the terms of the Agreement may be varied only by a written agreement signed by both parties that expressly refers to the Agreement. A Service Order may be amended to modify, add, or remove services by a formal written agreement signed by both parties, or by an exchange of correspondence that includes the express consent of an authorized individual for each of us. The pre-printed terms of your purchase order or other business form or terms that you provide shall be void and of no effect.
16.3 If any part of the Agreement is found unenforceable, the rest of the Agreement will continue in effect, and the unenforceable part shall be reformed to the extent possible to make it enforceable and give business efficacy to the Agreement. Each party may enforce its respective rights under the Agreement even if it has waived the right or failed to enforce the same or other rights in the past. The relationship between the parties is that of independent contractors and not business partners. Neither party is the agent for the other and neither party has the right to bind the other on any agreement with a third party.
16.4 The following provisions in these Terms of Service shall survive expiration or termination of the Agreement: Intellectual Property, Confidential Information, Indemnification, Limitation on Damages, General Disclaimers, Governing Law, Notices, Miscellaneous, all terms of the Agreement requiring you to pay any fees for Services provided prior to the time of expiration or termination, or requiring you to pay an early termination fee, and any other provisions that by their nature are intended to survive expiration or termination of the Agreement.
16.5 The Agreement constitutes the complete and exclusive understanding between the parties regarding its subject matter and supersedes and replaces any prior or contemporaneous representation(s), agreement(s) or understanding(s), written or oral.
