In the event that GIBSON & DEHN, or an affiliate of GIBSON & DEHN is involved in a merger, acquisition, consolidation, restructuring, reorganization, liquidation, sale or similar transaction relating to any portion of its business and/or assets, or in the unlikely event that GIBSON & DEHN goes out of business or enters bankruptcy, each User hereby acknowledges and agrees that the Website, all data collected on the Website (including Personal Information still within our possession, custody or control), and any of our rights and obligations under this Privacy Policy may be included in the assets of, and/or transferred pursuant to, such transaction, and that any acquirer or successor (or a third party through bankruptcy) of GIBSON & DEHN may continue to use the Personal Information as set forth in this Privacy Policy. If that occurs, a notice will be posted to such effect on the Website and/or notification will be provided by any other media or contact method as may be required by applicable laws and regulations.

  1. Disputes and Governing Law

Use of this Website and these Terms of Use shall be governed by the laws of the State of New York of the United States of America, without regard to its conflict of law provisions. In the event that any portion of these Terms and Conditions are deemed unenforceable, unlawful or void by a tribunal of competent jurisdiction, in any jurisdiction for any reason, unless narrowed by construction, such portion of these Terms and Conditions shall, for purposes of such jurisdiction only, be construed as if such invalid, prohibited or unenforceable portion had been more narrowly constructed so as not to be invalid, prohibited or unenforceable (or if such provision cannot be drawn narrowly enough, the tribunal making any such determination shall have the power to modify such portion of these Terms and Conditions to the extent necessary to make such portion of these Terms and Conditions enforceable in such jurisdiction, and such portion shall then be applicable in such modified form in such jurisdiction).  

If, notwithstanding the foregoing, any such portion of these Terms and Conditions would be held to be invalid, prohibited or unenforceable in any jurisdiction for any reason, such portion, as to such jurisdiction only, shall be ineffective to the extent of such invalidity, prohibition or unenforceability, without invalidating the remaining provisions set forth in these Terms and Conditions.  No narrowed construction, modification or invalidation of any portion of the Terms and Conditions shall affect the construction, validity or enforceability of such portion in any other jurisdiction. No waiver by GIBSON & DEHN of any term or condition of these Terms and Conditions shall be deemed a further or continuing waiver of such term or condition or of any other term or condition, and GIBSON & DEHN’S failure to assert any right or demand compliance with any provision of these Terms and Conditions shall not be deemed to constitute a waiver of any such right or provision.

Except where prohibited by law, as a condition of you clicking acceptance of these Terms and Conditions and/or accessing and/or using this Website, you agree that (1) any and all disputes and causes of action arising out of or connected with this Website shall be resolved individually, without resort to any form of class action, and exclusively by final and binding arbitration in New York within one year from the date that the cause of action arose (or, if multiple causes of actions are involved, from the date that the first cause of action arose), with such arbitration conducted by a single arbitrator pursuant to the then-prevailing rules of the American Arbitration Association; and (2) judgment upon such arbitration award may be entered in any court having jurisdiction.  To the fullest extent permitted by law, no arbitration brought pursuant hereto shall be joined to any other action or arbitration.

The rules governing arbitration are different than those in court.  Arbitration does not involve a judge or jury and review is limited, but an arbitrator can award the same damages as a court.   You understand that by accepting these Terms and Conditions, you are giving up your right to a trial in court, either with or without a jury.

To the fullest extent permitted at law, under no circumstances will you be permitted to obtain an award for, and by accessing and/or using the site you waive all rights to claim, punitive, incidental, consequential or any other damages (including multiplied and/or increased damages and/or attorneys' fees and court costs) for, any dispute or cause of action that you may have that relates in whole or part to this Website and/or the Content. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary set forth in these Terms and Conditions or otherwise, your recovery with respect to any and all claims, judgments, and awards for which you are entitled shall, to the fullest extent permitted at law, be limited to your actual out-of-pocket costs incurred, excluding attorneys’ fees and court costs.

Notwithstanding anything to the contrary set forth in these Terms and Conditions, GIBSON & DEHN may at any time seek injunctive or other appropriate relief against you and/or against others, in any state or federal court in the state of New York and/or in any other court chosen by GIBSON & DEHN, without the requirement to post a bond or any other surety in respect thereof, in the event that GIBSON & DEHN believes that there is a violation, or a threatened violation, of any of GIBSON & DEHN’s intellectual property rights and, in such case, you hereby consent to the exclusive jurisdiction and venue of such court.

In the event that GIBSON & DEHN, or an affiliate of GIBSON & DEHN is involved in a merger, acquisition, consolidation, restructuring, reorganization, liquidation, sale or similar transaction relating to any portion of its business and/or assets, or in the unlikely event that GIBSON & DEHN goes out of business or enters bankruptcy, each User hereby acknowledges and agrees that the Website, all data collected on the Website (including Personal Information still within our possession, custody or control), and any of our rights and obligations under this Privacy Policy may be included in the assets of, and/or transferred pursuant to, such transaction, and that any acquirer or successor (or a third party through bankruptcy) of GIBSON & DEHN may continue to use the Personal Information as set forth in this Privacy Policy. If that occurs, a notice will be posted to such effect on the Website and/or notification will be provided by any other media or contact method as may be required by applicable laws and regulations.
