The Terms of Use constitute the entire agreement between you and Blue Mango Weddings and govern your use of our Website and any services offered in our Website. This agreement supersedes any prior terms of use agreements between you and Blue Mango Weddings.

14. Governing Law; Venue and Jurisdiction. 

By visiting or using the Website, you agree that the laws of the State of California, without regard to principles of conflict of laws of any state or jurisdiction, will govern these Terms of Use and any dispute of any sort that might arise between you and Blue Mango Weddings or any of our affiliates. With respect to any disputes or claims not subject to arbitration (as set forth below), you agree not to commence or prosecute any action in connection therewith other than in the state and federal courts of California, and you hereby consent to, and waive all defenses of lack of personal jurisdiction and forum non conveniens with respect to, venue and jurisdiction in the state and federal courts of California.

15. Arbitration. 

Disputes between you and Blue Mango Weddings regarding the Website and our services should be reported to info@BlueMangoWeddings.com. We will attempt to resolve any disputes you have with us. Any claim or controversy arising out of or relating to your use of this Website, to the goods or services provided through Blue Mango Weddings, this Agreement, or to any acts or omissions for which you may contend Blue Mango Weddings is liable, including but not limited to any claim or controversy as to arbitrability ("Dispute"), shall be finally, and exclusively, settled by arbitration. The arbitration shall be held before one arbitrator under the commercial arbitration rules of the American Arbitration Association ("AAA") in force at that time. The arbitration shall be conducted in the County of Alameda, California. The arbitrator shall be selected pursuant to the AAA rules. Should no AAA rule regarding California selection of an arbitrator be in effect, the User shall select an arbitrator from a panel of arbitrators acceptable to Blue Mango Weddings. Costs of arbitration will be paid by the non-prevailing party. To begin the arbitration process, a party must make a written demand therefore.

Any judgment upon an award rendered by the arbitrators may be entered in any court of competent jurisdiction in the County of Alameda, California. The arbitrators shall not have the power to award damages in connection with any Dispute in excess of actual compensatory damages and shall not multiply actual damages or award consequential, punitive or exemplary damages, and each party irrevocably waives any claim thereto. The agreement to arbitrate shall not be construed as an agreement to the joinder or consolidation of an arbitration under this Agreement with an arbitration of disputes or claims of any non-party, regardless of the nature of the issues or disputes involved.

THIS AGREEMENT PROVIDES THAT ALL DISPUTES BETWEEN YOU AND BLUE MANGO WEDDINGS WILL BE RESOLVED BY BINDING ARBITRATION. YOU THUS GIVE UP YOUR RIGHT TO GO TO COURT TO ASSERT OR DEFEND YOUR RIGHTS. YOU ALSO GIVE UP YOUR RIGHT TO PARTICIPATE IN OR BRING CLASS ACTIONS. YOUR RIGHTS WILL BE DETERMINED BY NEUTRAL ARBITRATORS AND NOT A JUDGE OR JURY. You are entitled to a fair hearing, but the arbitration procedures are simpler and more limited than rules applicable in court. Arbitrator decisions are enforceable as any court order and are subject to very limited review by a court. By using Blue Mango Weddings' goods and services or the Website, you consent to these restrictions.

Should a Dispute arise and should the arbitration provisions herein become inapplicable or unenforceable, or in any instance of any lawsuit between you and Blue Mango Weddings, the parties agree that jurisdiction over and venue of any suit shall be exclusively in the state and federal courts sitting in the County of Alameda, California. If either party employs attorneys to enforce any right in connection with any Dispute or lawsuit, the prevailing party shall be entitled to recover reasonable attorneys' fees.

16. Security. 

Blue Mango Weddings uses industry standard practices to safeguard your personal information. We utilize several different security techniques to protect data from unauthorized access, but We cannot guarantee the security of our system. We also do not guarantee uninterrupted or secure access to our system, as the operation of our Website can be interrupted by numerous factors outside of our control.

17. Last Points.

You agree that, except as otherwise expressly provided in this Terms of Use, there shall be no third party beneficiaries to this agreement.

The failure of Blue Mango Weddings to exercise or enforce any right or provision of the Terms of Use shall not constitute a waiver of such right or provision. If any provision of the Terms of Use is found by a court of competent jurisdiction to be invalid, the other terms and provisions of the Terms of use shall remain in full force and effect.

You agree that regardless of any statute or law to the contrary, any claim or cause of action arising out of or related to use of any services provided in our Web Website or the Terms of Use must be filed within one (1) year after such claim or cause of action arose or be forever barred.

The section titles and other headings in the Terms of Use are for convenience only and have no legal or contractual effect.
