Not withstanding the foregoing, Organization may disclose Confidential Information to the limited extent required (A) to comply with the order of a court or other governmental body, or as otherwise necessary to comply with applicable law, provided that Organization first gives written notice to TPN and made a reasonable effort to obtain a protective order; or (B) to establish a party’s rights under these Terms, including to make required court filings. Organization’s obligations of non-disclosure with regard to Confidential Information are effective as of the date such Confidential Information is first disclosed to Organization and will expire five years thereafter; provided, however, with respect to any Confidential Information that constitutes a trade secret (as determined under applicable law), such obligations of non-disclosure will survive the termination or expiration of these Terms for as long as such Confidential Information remains subject to trade secret protection under applicable law.

14. Dispute Resolution; Arbitration.
(a) Agreement to Arbitrate. You and TPN each agree that any and all disputes or claims, regardless of the date of accrual, concerning these Terms, the Services, or any other aspect of your relationship with TPN or its affiliates, under any legal theory including those based in contract, warranty, tort, statute or regulation, will be resolved exclusively through final and binding arbitration rather than in court, except as provided in Sections 14(a)(i) and 14(a)(ii)below.
(i) Small Claims Court. You may assert claims in small claims court, if your claims qualify, only on an individual (non-class, non-representative) basis.
(ii) IP Claims. TPN may bring any claim relating to infringement of our intellectual property rights in U.S. federal court. This Agreement to Arbitrate is intended to be broadly interpreted. The Federal Arbitration Act governs the interpretation and enforcement of this Agreement to Arbitrate.
(b) No Class Actions. You and TPN agree that class action lawsuits, class-wide arbitrations, private attorney-general actions, and any other proceeding where someone acts in a representative capacity aren’t allowed. The arbitrator(s) may not combine individual proceedings without the consent of all parties. Any relief awarded cannot affect other TPN users.
(c) Notice of Dispute. Prior to initiating an arbitration, a party who intends to seek arbitration must first send the other party, by certified mail, a written notice describing the dispute. You should send this notice to TPN at: TPN, Attn: Legal Department, Re: Notice of Dispute, at 2034 NW 56th Street #200, Seattle, WA 98107. TPN will send any notice to you to the address we have on file associated with your TPN account; it is your responsibility to keep your address up to date. All information called for in the notice must be provided, including a description of the nature and basis of the claims the party is asserting and the relief sought.
(d) Arbitration Procedure. If you and TPN are unable to resolve the claims described in the notice within 30days after the notice is sent, you or TPN may initiate arbitration proceedings. The arbitration will be conducted by JAMS under its Comprehensive Rules and Procedures, including the Optional Expedited Arbitration Procedures. Provided that for claims with the Scope of Rules, the arbitration will be conducted pursuant to the JAMS Streamlined Arbitration Rules and Procedures. JAMS rules and procedures are available at https://www.jamsadr.com/adr-rules-procedures/. The arbitrator(s) will decide the substance of all claims in accordance with applicable law, including recognized principles of equity, and will honor all claims of privilege recognized by law. The arbitrator(s) will not be bound by rulings in prior arbitrations involving different TPN customers, but is/are bound by rulings in prior arbitrations involving the same Organization to the extent required by applicable law. The arbitrator(s) may award the same damages and relief on an individual basis that a court can award to an individual. Any relief awarded cannot affect other TPN users. The award of the arbitrator(s) will be final and binding, and judgment on the award rendered by the arbitrator(s) may be entered in any court having jurisdiction thereof. Any arbitration will be confidential, and neither you nor we may disclose the existence, contents or results of any arbitration, except as may be required by law or for purposes of enforcement of the arbitration award.
(e) Costs of Arbitration. Payment of all filing, administration, and arbitrator fees will be governed by the JAMS rules, unless otherwise stated in this Section 14. In the event the arbitrator(s) determine the claim(s) you assert in the arbitration to be frivolous, you agree to reimburse TPN for all fees associated with the arbitration paid by TPN on your behalf that you otherwise would be obligated to pay under the JAMS rules. You will be responsible for all fees you are obligated to pay under the JAMS rules.
(f) Severability. With the exception to Section 14(b) above, if a court decides that any part of this Section 14 is invalid or unenforceable, the other parts of this Section 14 will still apply. If a court decides that any part of Section 14(b) above is invalid or unenforceable, then the entirety of this Section 14 will be null and void, but the remainder of these Terms will continue to apply.
15. Governing Law.
The laws of the state of Washington, without regard to principles of conflict of laws, will govern these Terms and any claim or dispute that has arisen or may arise between you and TPN.
TPN will be excused from performance of these Terms to the extent that performance is prevented, delayed, or obstructed by causes beyond its reasonable control. These Terms (including any amendment agreed upon by the parties in writing) represent the complete agreement between you and TPN concerning its subject matter, and supersede all prior agreements and representations between us. Only written waivers are effective. Lists of examples following “including”, “e.g.”, “such as”, or “for example” are interpreted to include “without limitation”, unless qualified by words such as "only” or “solely.” If any provision of these Terms is held to be unenforceable for any reason, such provision will be reformed to the extent necessary to make it enforceable to the maximum extent permissible so as to effect the intent of the parties, and the remainder of these Terms will continue in full force and effect. The United Nations Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods and the Uniform Computer Information Transactions Act do not apply to these Terms. The Service is controlled by U.S. Export Regulations, and it maybe not be exported to or used by embargoed countries or individuals. You may not assign or otherwise transfer any of your rights in these Terms without our prior written consent, and any such attempt is void. We expressly reserve the right to assign these Terms and to delegate any of our obligations hereunder. The relationship between TPN and you is not one of a legal partnership relationship but is one of independent contractors, and we are not an agent or trustee. These Terms will be binding upon and inure to the benefit of the respective successors and assigns of the parties hereto.
