Linguistic Inconsistency or Conflict
In the event of conflict or inconsistency between the English language version of this Agreement and a localized version in a different language as provided by SimaFore, the English version shall prevail.
Governing Law and Jurisdiction
This Agreement, as well as related SimaFore Agreements and Policies, urges compliance with local law throughout all jurisdictions served by SimaFore, but it is exclusively subject to United States Law, specifically the State of Michigan, which shall govern its interpretation and implementation. The Courts of Michigan, U.S.A. shall have exclusive jurisdiction over all claims or disputes arising in relation to, out of or in connection with the subject matter.
However, prior to either party seeking resolution of a dispute in any court of law, User and Simafore shall first attempt to resolve the matter cost effectively through 1) informal negotiation, and/or 2) retaining a mutually acceptable provider of long distance mediation services for up to four hours of mediation sessions via telephone or videoconferencing technology. Otherwise, where these more informal measures are not effective, the usual legal and equitable remedies are available. In situations where SimaFore is required to seek an injunction or restraining order, SimaFore may seek legal remedies without prior negotiation or mediation.
