15. Arbitration, Class-Action Waiver, and Jury Waiver
PLEASE READ THE FOLLOWING PARAGRAPHS CAREFULLY BECAUSE THEY PROVIDE THAT COMPANY AND YOU AGREE TO RESOLVE ALL DISPUTES BETWEEN THE PARTIES THROUGH BINDING INDIVIDUAL ARBITRATION.
Neither party consents or agrees to any arbitration on a class or representative basis, and the arbitrator shall have no authority to proceed with an arbitration on a class or representative basis. No arbitration will be consolidated with any other arbitration proceeding without the consent of all parties. In addition, all disputes concerning the arbitrability of a claim (including disputes about the scope, applicability, enforceability, revocability, or validity of the Arbitration Agreement) shall be decided by the arbitrator. Notwithstanding the foregoing, either party may bring an individual action in small claims court.
Company will pay all costs associated with the arbitration, including the entire filing fee, if Company initiates the arbitration of a dispute. If you initiate the arbitration, you will be responsible for the first $100 toward the filing fee, and Company will pay the remainder of the filing fee and both parties’ administrative fee. Each party will be responsible for any and all fees and costs associated with each party’s legal representation in such arbitration unless such fees and costs are awarded by the arbitrator.
You may opt out of this Arbitration Agreement by notifying Company in writing no later than 30 days after first becoming subject to this Arbitration Agreement.

16. Miscellaneous Provisions
Severability. If any term or provision in these Terms is found to be void, against public policy, or unenforceable by a court of competent jurisdiction and such finding or order becomes final with all appeals exhausted, then the offending provision shall be deemed modified to the extent necessary to make it valid and enforceable. If the offending provision cannot be so modified, then the same shall be deemed stricken from these Terms in its entirety and the remainder of these Terms shall survive with the said offending provision eliminated.
Application Availability. We cannot guarantee the Application will be available 100% of the time because public networks, such as the internet, occasionally experience disruptions. Although we strive to provide the most reliable Application reasonably possible, interruptions and delays in accessing the Application are unavoidable and Company disclaims any liability for damages resulting from such problems.
Typographical Errors. Information on the Application may contain technical inaccuracies or typographical errors. We attempt to make the Application’s postings as accurate as possible, but Company does not warrant the content of the Application is accurate, complete, reliable, current, or error-free.
Headings. Condition and section headings are for convenience of reference only and shall not affect the interpretation of these Terms.
Controlling Law and Venue. It is understood and agreed that all the construction and interpretation of these Terms and the relationship between the parties shall at all times and in all respects be governed by the internal laws of the State of Colorado, without giving effect to the conflict of laws provisions thereof. For any disputes not covered by the arbitration clause in Section 16, the venue of any action brought to enforce or relating to these Terms or arising out of the relationship between the parties shall be brought exclusively in the courts of Denver, Colorado.
Survival. The rights and obligations in Sections 8, 9, 11, 12, 13, 16, and 17 shall survive the termination of these Terms.
