ENFORCEMENT OF TERMS AND CONDITIONS
These terms are governed and interpreted pursuant to the laws of the State of Kansas, United States of America, notwithstanding any principles of conflicts of law.
All disputes arising out of or relating to these terms shall be finally resolved by arbitration conducted in the English language in Overland Park, Kansas, U.S.A. under the commercial arbitration rules of the American Arbitration Association. The parties shall appoint as sole arbitrator a retired judge who presided in the State of Kansas. The parties shall bear equally the cost of the arbitration (except that the prevailing party shall be entitled to an award of reasonable attorneys’ fees incurred in connection with the arbitration in such an amount as may be determined by the arbitrator). All decisions of the arbitrator shall be final and binding on both parties and enforceable in any court of competent jurisdiction. Notwithstanding this, application may be made to any court for a judicial acceptance of the award or order of enforcement. Notwithstanding the foregoing, Midwest Consulting Group shall be entitled to seek injunctive relief, security, or other equitable remedies from the United States District Court for the State of Kansas or any other court of competent jurisdiction.
If any part of these terms is unlawful, void, or unenforceable, that part will be deemed severable and will not affect the validity and enforceability of the remaining provisions. Midwest Consulting Group may, at its sole discretion and without notice, revise these terms at any time by updating this posting.
This is the entire Agreement between the parties relating to the subject matter herein and shall not be modified except in writing signed by both parties or by a new posting by Midwest Consulting Group, as described above.
