By using the Services or the Websites, you agree that the Federal Arbitration Act, applicable federal law, and the law of the State of Arizona, without regard to its principles on conflicts of laws, will govern these Terms and Conditions, your use of the Websites and the Services, and any dispute of any sort that might arise between you and Champion Companies.

If a dispute arises between you and Champion Companies, our goal is to provide you a neutral and cost-effective means of resolving the dispute quickly. To that end, you agree to first contact Champion Companies Customer Support by phone or email via the contact information below to describe the problem and seek a resolution. If that does not resolve the issue, then you and Champion Companies agree that any dispute or claim relating to your use of the Services or the Websites will be resolved through binding arbitration, rather than in court, except that you may assert claims in small claims court if your claims qualify. In addition, you and Champion Companies both agree that either party may bring suit in court to enjoin infringement or other misuse of intellectual property rights. If for any reason a claim proceeds in court rather than in arbitration, you and Champion Companies each waive any right to a jury trial.

You and Champion Companies agree that each may bring claims against the other only in your or its individual capacity, and not as a plaintiff or class member in any purported class, consolidated, or representative action. Further, unless both you and Champion Companies agree otherwise, the arbitrator may not consolidate more than one person’s claims, and may not otherwise preside over any form of a representative or class proceeding. Notwithstanding the foregoing, this arbitration agreement does not preclude you from bringing issues to the attention of federal, state, or local agencies. Such agencies can, if the law allows, seek relief against us on your behalf. This entire arbitration provision shall survive termination of this Agreement and the termination of your Champion Companies membership(s).

To begin an arbitration proceeding, you must send a certified letter requesting arbitration and describing your claim to Champion Companies Legal Department, Champion College Services, 7776 S Pointe Parkway West, Suite 250, Phoenix, AZ 85044.

These terms are personal to you and, as a result, you may not, without the written consent of Champion Companies, assign or transfer any of your rights and obligations under this Agreement. There shall be no third-party beneficiaries to this Agreement.

Severability. In the event that any term of this Agreement is held to be invalid or unenforceable by a court of competent jurisdiction, the remainder of these terms shall remain valid and enforceable. We can replace any term which is not valid and enforceable with a term of similar meaning which is valid and enforceable.

Waiver. Any failure by us to enforce any term of the terms of this Agreement shall not affect our right to require performance at any subsequent time, nor shall the waiver by us of any breach by you of any provisions of these terms be taken to be a waiver of the provision or provisions itself.
