We do not represent or warrant that any of our Cover Expressions products and/or services or any part thereof is appropriate or available for use in any particular jurisdiction. Those who choose to access Cover Expressions do so on their own initiative and at their own risk, and they are responsible for complying with all applicable laws, rules, and regulations. We may limit the availability of our Cover Expressions products, in whole or in part, to any person, geographic area, or jurisdiction we choose, at any time and in our sole discretion.

  1. ARBITRATION AGREEMENT

You and Tyndale agree that any dispute, claim, or controversy arising out of or relating in any way to the Cover Expressions service or products shall be resolved by binding arbitration held in DuPage County, Illinois, in accordance with the Commercial Rules of the American Arbitration Association. You agree that you and Tyndale are each waiving the right to a trial by jury or to participate in a class action. This arbitration provision shall survive termination of this Agreement and the termination of your Tyndale account.

YOU AND TYNDALE AGREE THAT EACH MAY BRING CLAIMS AGAINST THE OTHER ONLY IN YOUR OR ITS INDIVIDUAL CAPACITY, AND NOT AS A PLAINTIFF OR CLASS MEMBER IN ANY PURPORTED CLASS OR REPRESENTATIVE PROCEEDING. Further, unless both you and Tyndale agree otherwise, the arbitrator may not consolidate more than one person’s claims with your claims, and may not otherwise preside over any form of a representative or class proceeding. If this specific provision is found to be unenforceable, then the entirety of this arbitration provision shall be null and void. The arbitrator may award declaratory or injunctive relief only in favor of the individual party seeking relief and only to the extent necessary to provide relief warranted by that party’s individual claim.
