Governing Law:

You agree that: (i) the Service shall be deemed solely based in New Mexico, USA; and (ii) the Service shall be deemed a passive one that does not give rise to personal jurisdiction over Wind Aftermarket, either specific or general, in jurisdictions other than New Mexico. This Agreement shall be governed by the internal substantive laws of the State of New Mexico. You agree to submit to the personal jurisdiction of a state court located in Bernalillo County, New Mexico or the U.S. District Court for the District of New Mexico for any actions for which we retain the right to seek injunctive or other equitable relief in a court of competent jurisdiction to prevent the actual or threatened infringement, misappropriation or violation of a our copyrights, trademarks, trade secrets, patents, or other intellectual property or proprietary rights, as set forth in the Arbitration provision below.

Arbitration:

In the unlikely event that Wind Aftermarket has not been able to resolve a dispute it has with you after attempting to do so informally, we each agree to resolve any claim, dispute, or controversy (excluding any Wind Aftermarket claims for injunctive or other equitable relief) arising out of or in connection with or relating to this Agreement, or the breach or alleged breach thereof (collectively, “Claims”), by binding arbitration in the county of Bernalillo. The award rendered by the arbitrator shall include costs of arbitration, reasonable attorney’s fees and reasonable costs for expert and other witnesses, and any judgment on the award rendered by the arbitrator may be entered in any court of competent jurisdiction. Nothing in this Section shall be deemed as preventing Wind Aftermarket from seeking injunctive or other equitable relief from the courts as necessary to protect any of Wind Aftermarket’s proprietary interests. All claims must be brought in the party’s individual capacity, and not as a class member in any purported class or representative proceeding.  You agree that, by entering into this agreement, you and Wind Aftermarket are each waiving the right to a trial by jury or to participate in a class action.

Entire Agreement/Severability:

This Agreement, together with all amendments, all documents referenced in this Agreement, and any other legal notices and agreements published by Wind Aftermarket via the Service, shall constitute the entire agreement between you and Wind Aftermarket concerning the Service. If a court of competent jurisdiction deems any provision of this Agreement invalid, the invalidity of such provision shall not affect the validity of the remaining provisions of this Agreement, which shall remain in full force and effect.

No Waiver:

No waiver of any term of this Agreement shall be deemed a further or continuing waiver of such term or any other term, and Wind Aftermarket’s failure to assert any right or provision under this Agreement shall not constitute a waiver of such right or provision.

Changes:

We reserve the right, at our sole discretion, to modify or replace these Terms at any time. If a revision is material we will try to provide at least 30 days notice prior to any new terms taking effect. What constitutes a material change will be determined at our sole discretion.
