YOU AGREE THAT YOU MUST EVALUATE, AND THAT YOU BEAR ALL RISKS ASSOCIATED WITH, THE USE OF THE SITE, INCLUDING WITHOUT LIMITATION ANY RELIANCE ON THE ACCURACY, COMPLETENESS, OR USEFULNESS OF ANY CONTENT.

VI. Dispute Resolution Terms
Any disputes, claims, and causes of action arising out of or connected with your use of the Site (each, a “Dispute”) must be submitted exclusively to the American Arbitration Association (AAA) to be heard under their applicable Arbitration Rules. If for any reason, AAA is unable or unwilling to conduct the arbitration consistent with these terms, you and USC will pick another arbitrator pursuant to 9 U.S. Code § 5. You agree that any Dispute between us shall be resolved exclusively in individual (non-class) arbitration. The parties intend to be bound to the Federal Arbitration Act, 9 U.S.C. § 1 et seq, and you waive any right to a jury or judge. The arbitrator shall exclusively determine all issues as to the Dispute and any question as to whether any Dispute or issue is subject to arbitration. The arbitrator shall not have the power to hear any Dispute as a class action, mass action, or representative action. You agree that any Dispute between us shall be resolved in an individual action. Under no circumstances will you file, seek, or participate in a class action, mass action, or representative action in connection with a Dispute.
The arbitrator shall not have any power to issue relief to anyone but You or USC. You agree that any Disputes shall be heard exclusively in Harris County, Texas. You consent to jurisdiction in the State of Texas for all purposes. These Terms and your use of the Site are governed by the laws of the State of Texas, U.S.A., without regard to its choice of law provisions. However, any determination as to whether a Dispute is subject to arbitration, or as to the conduct of the arbitration, shall be governed exclusively by the Federal Arbitration Act, 9 U.S.C. § 1 et seq. The arbitrator shall not issue any injunction. Any issue of injunctive relief may only be sought after arbitration is completed by the Arbitrator, and the findings of fact and conclusions of law of the arbitrator shall not be submitted as evidence or constitute precedent in this subsequent suit.
VII. Survival of Rights
All legal rights, obligations and liabilities arising from the Terms and Your use of the Site shall survive termination of the Terms or Site for any reason.
If any provision of these Terms is found to be unlawful, void, or for any reason unenforceable, that provision will be deemed severable from these Terms and will not affect the validity and enforceability of any remaining provision.
USC may assign these Terms, in whole or in part, at any time with or without notice to You. You may not assign, transfer, or sublicense these Terms or any or all of Your rights or obligations under these Terms without USC’s express, prior, written consent.
