YOU AGREE THAT NO CLAIMS OR ACTION ARISING OUT OF, OR RELATED TO, THE USE OF THE SITE OR THESE TERMS AND CONDITIONS MAY BE BROUGHT BY YOU MORE THAN ONE (1) YEAR AFTER THE CAUSE OF ACTION RELATING TO SUCH CLAIM OR ACTION AROSE.
You agree to defend, indemnify and hold us harmless for any loss, damages or costs, including reasonable attorneys' fees, resulting from any third party claim, action, or demand resulting from your use of the Site or breach of these Terms and Conditions. You also agree to indemnify us for any loss, damages, or costs, including reasonable attorneys' fees, resulting from your use of software robots, spiders, crawlers, or similar data gathering and extraction tools, or any other action you take that imposes an unreasonable burden or load on our infrastructure.
With respect to any dispute regarding the Site, all rights and obligations and all actions contemplated by these Terms and Conditions shall be governed by the laws of Hong Kong. Any dispute relating in any way to your visit to the Site shall be settled by confidential arbitration in Hong Kong and you shall irrevocably submit to the jurisdiction and proceedings thereof, except that, to the extent you have in any manner violated or threatened to violate our intellectual property rights or the intellectual property rights of our affiliates, partners or licensors or otherwise have a cause of action in equity, we may seek injunctive or other appropriate relief in any court of competent jurisdiction and you consent to jurisdiction and venue in any such court for such purposes. A request for an injunctive or other appropriate relief by us to a court shall not be deemed incompatible with, or a waiver of, this agreement to arbitrate. The arbitration tribunal shall also have the authority to make such orders for interim relief, including injunctive relief, as it may deem just and equitable. Arbitration under this agreement shall be conducted in accordance with the UNCITRAL Arbitration Rules (as at present in force and as may be amended by the rest of this clause). The arbitrator's award shall be binding and may be entered as a judgment in any court of competent jurisdiction. To the fullest extent permitted by applicable law, no arbitration under these Terms and Conditions shall be joined to an arbitration involving any other party subject to these Terms and Conditions, whether through class arbitration proceedings or otherwise.
The place of arbitration shall be in Hong Kong at Hong Kong International Arbitration Centre (“HKIAC”) and the language to be used in the arbitral proceedings shall be English. There shall be only one arbitrator and the appointing authority shall be HKIAC.
You agree that you shall keep the arbitration confidential and shall not, without our prior written consent, disclose the existence of the proceedings and any element of it (including but not limited to any pleadings, submissions or other documents submitted or exchanged, any evidence, and any awards, decisions or ruling) beyond the parties to the arbitration and their representatives, the arbitral tribunal, the administering institution (if any) and any person necessary to the conduct of the proceeding, except as may be lawfully required in judicial proceedings.
To the extent that arbitration is not permitted by applicable law, any dispute relating in any way to your visit to the Site shall be submitted to the Hong Kong courts or the courts of another jurisdiction as appropriate, without prejudice to all applicable provisions of this Section 9.
You acknowledge and agree that these Terms and Conditions constitute the complete and exclusive agreement between us concerning your use of the Site, and supersede and govern all prior proposals, agreements, or other communications.
We reserve the right, in our sole discretion, to change these Terms and Conditions at any time by posting the changes on the Site and providing notice of such change. Any changes are effective immediately upon posting to the Site and release of notice of such change. Your continued use of the Site thereafter constitutes your agreement to all such changed Terms and Conditions. We may, with or without prior notice, terminate any of the rights granted by these Terms and Conditions. You shall comply immediately with any termination or other notice, including, as applicable, by ceasing all use of the Site.
Nothing contained in these Terms and Conditions shall be construed as creating any agency, partnership, or other form of joint enterprise between us. Our failure to require your performance of any provision hereof shall not affect our full right to require such performance at any time thereafter, nor shall our waiver of a breach of any provision hereof be taken or held to be a waiver of the provision itself. In the event that any provision of these Terms and Conditions shall be unenforceable or invalid under any applicable law or be so held by any applicable arbitral award or court decision, such unenforceability or invalidity shall not render these Terms and Conditions unenforceable or invalid as a whole but these Terms and Conditions shall be modified, to the extent possible, by the adjudicating entity to most fully reflect the original intent of the parties as reflected in the original provision.
