DCP operates the Website within the United States of America, and these Terms are governed by the laws of the United States of America and the State of Ohio, without giving effect to the conflict of law provisions thereof and expressly excluding any application of the United Nations Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods. You agree that any legal action arising out of or relating in any way to the Website will be brought exclusively in the Federal or State courts located in Hamilton County, Ohio, and you irrevocably agree to submit to the jurisdiction of such courts. Further, you agree to indemnify, defend and hold harmless DCP and its agents and affiliates against any claim, liability, expense or damages arising from or relating to your use of the Website. If any provision of these Terms shall be deemed unlawful, void, or for any other reason unenforceable, then that provision shall be deemed severable from the remainder of the Terms and shall not affect the validity and enforceability of any remaining provisions.

Any dispute, claim or controversy arising out of or relating to these Terms or the breach, termination, enforcement, interpretation or validity thereof, including the determination of the scope or applicability of this agreement to arbitrate, shall be determined by arbitration in Cincinnati, Ohio, unless otherwise agreed upon by DCP. The arbitration shall be administered by a 3-person arbitration panel. Each party shall select an arbitrator and they shall select the third who shall chair the panel. Judgment on the award may be entered in any court having jurisdiction. This clause shall not preclude parties from seeking provisional remedies in aid of arbitration from a court of appropriate jurisdiction. Nothing in this paragraph shall be deemed as preventing DCP from seeking injunctive or other equitable relief from the courts as necessary to prevent the actual or threatened infringement, misappropriation, or violation of our data security, intellectual property rights or other proprietary rights.

If any provision of the Terms is found by a court of competent jurisdiction or arbitrator or arbitration panel to be invalid or unenforceable, such provision shall be enforced to the maximum extent permissible and the other provisions of the Terms shall remain in full force and effect.

If any action at law or in equity is necessary to enforce these Terms, the prevailing party will be entitled to reasonable fees of attorneys, accountants and other professionals, and costs and expenses in addition to any other relief to which such prevailing party may be entitled.

THIS WAIVER APPLIES TO CLASS ARBITRATION, AND, UNLESS DCP AGREES OTHERWISE, THE ARBITRATOR(S) MAY NOT CONSOLIDATE MORE THAN ONE PERSON'S CLAIMS.

YOU FURTHER AGREE THAT, BY ENTERING INTO THIS AGREEMENT, YOU AND DCP ARE EACH WAIVING THE RIGHT TO A TRIAL BY JURY OR TO PARTICIPATE IN A CLASS ACTION, COLLECTIVE ACTION, PRIVATE ATTORNEY GENERAL ACTION, OR OTHER REPRESENTATIVE ACTION.
