2. User Content And Users
User is solely responsible for the contents of its Information and its transmissions through the Praos Platform, and the Platform simply acts as a passive conduit for User to send and receive information of User’s own choosing. However, Praos Health reserves the right to take any action it deems necessary or appropriate in its sole discretion if it believes User or User’s information may create liability for Praos Health, compromise or disrupt the Praos Platform or other Users, or may cause Praos Health to lose (in whole or in part) the services of Praos Health’s ISPs or other suppliers. User’s use of the Praos Platform is subject to all applicable local, state, national and international laws and regulations (including without limitation those governing account collection, export control, consumer protection, unfair competition, anti-discrimination or false advertising).

12. Termination By Praos Health
Praos Health together with your Organization reserves the right to terminate your access to the Praos Platform if you have not used the Service in the previous twelve calendar months or if you are in material breach of the agreement.
13. General Provisions
This Agreement or any claim, cause of action or dispute (“Claim”) arising out of or related to this Agreement shall be governed by the laws of the State of Ohio regardless of your country of origin or where you access Praos Health, and notwithstanding any conflict of law principles.
13.2 Mandatory Binding Arbitration and Class Action Waiver.
Praos Health and you mutually agree to resolve any justiciable disputes between them exclusively through final and binding arbitration instead of filing a lawsuit in court. This arbitration agreement is governed by the Federal Arbitration Act (9 U.S.C Sections 1-16) and shall apply to any and all claims arising out of or relating to this Contract, the termination of this Contract, and all other aspects of the User’s relationship with Praos Health, past, present, or future, whether arising under federal, state or local statutory and/or common law, including without limitation harassment, discrimination or retaliation claims and claims arising under or related to the Civil Rights Act of 1964, Americans with Disabilities Act, Age Discrimination in Employment Act, Family Medical Leave Act, or Fair Labor Standards Act, state statutes or regulations addressing the same or similarly subject matters, and all other federal or state legal claims arising out of or relating to User’s relationship or termination of that relationship with Praos Health. However, this Agreement does not apply to litigation between you and Praos Health pending in a state or federal court as of the date of your receipt of this Agreement, nor does it apply to any claim that may be arbitrated as provided by an Act of Congress or lawful, enforceable Executive Order.
(a) If either party wishes to initiate arbitration, the initiating party must notify the other party in writing via certified mail, return receipt requested, or hand delivery within the applicable statute of limitation period. This demand for arbitration must include (1) the name and address of the party seeking arbitration, (2) a statement of the legal and factual basis of the claim, and (3) a description of the remedy sought. Any demand for arbitration by User must be delivered to Dominique Stafford at firstname.lastname@example.org.
(b) Class Action Waiver. Praos Health and User mutually agree that by entering into this agreement to arbitrate, both waiver their right to have any dispute or claim brought, heard or arbitrated as a class action, collective action and/or representative action, and an arbitrator shall not have any authority to hear or arbitrate any class, collective or representative action (“Class Action Waiver”). Notwithstanding any other clause contained in this Agreement of the AAA Rules, as defined below, any claim that all or part of this Class Action Waiver is enforceable, unconscionable, void or voidable may be determined only by a court of competent jurisdiction and not by an arbitrator. In any case in which (1) the dispute is filed as a class, collective, representative or private attorney general action and (2) there is a final judicial determination that all or part of the Class Action Waiver is unenforceable, the class, collective, representative and/or private attorney general action to that extent must be litigated in a civil court of competent jurisdiction, but the portion of the Class Action Waiver that is enforceable shall be enforced in arbitration.

For the purposes of this subsection, a written instrument will expressly exclude electronic communications, such as email and electronic notices, but will include facsimiles.
18. No Waiver
The failure or delay of either party to exercise or enforce any right or claim does not constitute a waiver of such right or claim and will in no way affect that party’s right to later enforce or exercise it, unless such party issues an express written waiver, signed by a duly authorized representative of such party.
User may not assign the Terms of Service, or any of its rights or obligations hereunder, without Praos Health’s prior written consent in the form of a written instrument signed by a duly authorized representative of Praos Health (and, for the purposes of this subsection, a written instrument will expressly exclude electronic communications such as email and electronic notices, but will include facsimiles). Praos Health may freely assign this Agreement or the other Terms of Service without User’s consent. Any attempted assignment or transfer in violation of this subsection will be null and void.

If and to the extent any provision of this Agreement or the other Terms of Service is held illegal, invalid, or unenforceable in whole or in part under applicable law, such provision or such portion thereof will be ineffective as to the jurisdiction in which it is illegal, invalid, or unenforceable to the extent of its illegality, invalidity, or unenforceability and will be deemed modified to the extent necessary to conform to applicable law so as to give the maximum effect to the intent of the parties. The illegality, invalidity, or unenforceability of such provision in that jurisdiction will not in any way affect the legality, validity, or enforceability of such provision in any other jurisdiction or of any other provision in any jurisdiction.
