c. The Parties agree to exclusive jurisdiction in, and only in, Orange County, Florida.
d. The Parties agree to exclusive venue in, and only in, Orange County, Florida.

Arbitral Claims shall include, but are not limited to, contract and tort claims of all kinds, and all claims based on any federal, state or local law, statute, or regulation, excepting only claims by Us for intellectual property violations, actions for injunctions, attachment, garnishment, and other equitable relief.

The arbitrator shall be willing to execute an oath of neutrality.
b. The Arbitrator shall have no authority to award any punitive or exemplary damages; certify a class action; add any parties; vary or ignore the provisions of this Agreement; and shall be bound by governing and applicable law.

THE PARTIES HEREBY WAIVE ANY RIGHTS THEY MAY HAVE TO TRIAL BY JURY IN REGARD TO ARBITRAL CLAIMS.
c. No waiver of right to arbitration — There shall be no waiver of the right to arbitration unless such waiver is provided affirmatively and in writing by the waiving Party to the other Party.
