15. GEOGRAPHIC SCOPE

We operate and control this Site from within the United States. The Service is intended to promote only those courses that are offered and sold by ACT to customers located in the United States, its territories and possessions, and Canada. To the fullest extent permissible by applicable law, ACT does not represent that materials on the Service or the course offerings described thereon are appropriate or available for use in other locations, and access to the Service and/or the Service Content from territories where their content is illegal is prohibited. Persons who choose to access the Service from other locations do so on their own initiative, and are responsible for compliance with local laws, if and to the extent local laws are applicable.

16. SEVERABILITY

In the event that any provision of these Terms of Service is determined to be unlawful, void or unenforceable, such provision shall nonetheless be enforceable to the fullest extent permitted by applicable law, and the unenforceable portion shall be deemed to be severed from these Terms of Service. Such determination shall not affect the validity and enforceability of any other remaining provisions.

17. TERMINATION

These Terms of Service are effective unless and until terminated in accordance with the terms of these Terms of Service.

If in our sole judgment you fail, or we suspect that you have failed, to comply with any term or provision of these Terms of Service, we may (i) terminate these Terms of Service at any time without notice and you will remain liable for all amounts due up to and including the date of termination, if any; and/or (ii) deny you access to our site or the Service (or any part thereof).

The obligations and liabilities of the parties incurred prior to the termination date shall survive the termination of these Terms of Service for all purposes.

18. DISPUTE RESOLUTION

To the extent permitted by law, any dispute relating in any way to your use of the Service or to courses you purchase through the Service or from ACT shall be submitted to confidential arbitration in Los Angeles, California; except that, to the extent you have in any manner violated or threatened to violate ACT's intellectual property rights or other proprietary rights or have taken any action that has or may violate the security or proper functioning of the Service or any Service Content, ACT may seek injunctive, monetary or other appropriate relief in any state or federal court in the State of California (and ACT may assert both intellectual property causes of action and other appropriate causes of action in any such action), and you consent to exclusive jurisdiction and venue in such courts. Arbitration under this agreement shall be conducted under the rules then prevailing of the American Arbitration Association. The arbitrator's award shall be binding and may be entered as a judgment in any court of competent jurisdiction. The arbitrator is authorized to grant ACT its reasonable fees and costs (including reasonable attorney's fees) incurred by ACT in any action to enforce these Terms of Use. TO THE EXTENT PERMITTED BY LAW, YOU EXPRESSLY WAIVE YOUR RIGHT TO SUE IN COURT, AND WAIVE YOUR RIGHT TO PROCEED BEFORE A JURY. TO THE EXTENT PERMITTED BY LAW, YOU AGREE THAT ARBITRATION UNDER THIS PROVISION SHALL BE SOLELY BETWEEN ACT AND YOU ON AN INVIDIVUAL BASIS AND THERE CAN BE NO CLASS OR OTHER REPRESENTATIVE ARBITRATION. THIS MEANS THAT YOU WILL HAVE NO RIGHT TO REPRESENT OR ACT WITH OR ON BEHALF OF ANYONE OTHER THAN YOURSELF IN ANY ARBITRATION.

19. ENTIRE AGREEMENT; NO WAIVER

Our failure to exercise or enforce any right or provision of these Terms of Service shall not constitute a waiver of such right or provision.

These Terms of Service and any policies or operating rules posted by us on the Site or in respect of the Service constitute the entire agreement and understanding between you and us and govern your use of the Service, superseding any prior or contemporaneous agreements, communications and proposals, whether oral or written, between you and us (including, but not limited to, any prior versions of the Terms of Service).

Any ambiguities in the interpretation of these Terms of Service shall not be construed against us as the drafting party.
