Disputes

THESE TERMS REQUIRE YOU TO ARBITRATE DISPUTES, WAIVE YOUR RIGHT TO A JURY TRIAL AND LIMIT THE MANNER IN WHICH YOU CAN SEEK RELIEF FOR ANY ALLEGED BREACH OF THESE TERMS TO THE FULLEST EXTENT PERMITTED BY LAW. Any dispute or claim relating in any way to these terms of use, this website, or any products or services sold or distributed by or through this website, will be resolved by binding arbitration, rather than in court, except that you may assert claims in small claims court if your claims so qualify. The Federal Arbitration Act and federal arbitration law will apply to any arbitration conducted in connection with these terms and conditions, and any such arbitration will be conducted confidentially by a single arbitrator in accordance with the rules of the American Arbitration Association in Chicago, Illinois. To the fullest extent permitted by law, we each agree that any arbitration or other dispute resolution proceedings will be conducted only on an individual basis and not in a class, consolidated or representative action. You and AGS, agree, to the fullest extent permitted by law, to waive any objection based on lack of personal jurisdiction, place of residence, improper venue or forum non-conveniens, and you agree to give up any right to a jury trial in any such arbitration or other dispute resolution proceeding. We also both agree that you or we may bring suit in court to enjoin infringement or other misuse of intellectual property rights. Arbitration shall not commence until the party requesting it has deposited the necessary and required deposit with the office of the arbitrator for the arbitrator’s fees and costs. The party requesting arbitration shall advance such sums as are required from time to time by the arbitrator to pay the arbitrator’s fees and costs until the prevailing party is determined or the parties have agreed in writing to an alternate allocation of fees and costs.  Judgment upon any award rendered by the arbitrator shall be final, binding and conclusive upon you and AGS and your and AGS’s respective administrators, executors, legal representatives, successors and assigns, and may be entered in any court of competent jurisdiction. Notwithstanding the previous sentence, in no event shall either you or AGS be entitled to punitive, special, indirect or consequential damages and both you and AGS hereby waive your and AGS’s respective rights to any punitive, special, indirect or consequential damages, including, but not limited to, damages for any loss of profit, revenue, value or business. Should a dispute arise and should the arbitration provisions herein become inapplicable or unenforceable, or in any instance of any lawsuit between you and AGS, jurisdiction over and venue of any suit shall be exclusively in the state and federal courts sitting in Cook County, Illinois.

Third-Party Links

In an attempt to provide increased value to our visitors, AGS may link to sites operated by third parties. However, even if the third party is affiliated with AGS, AGS has no control over these linked sites, all of which have separate privacy and data collection practices, independent of AGS. These linked sites are only for your convenience and therefore you access them at your own risk. Nonetheless, AGS seeks to protect the integrity of its web site and the links placed upon it and therefore requests any feedback on not only its own site, but for sites it links to as well (including if a specific link does not work).

Changes to Our Terms & Conditions It is our policy to post any changes we make to our terms & conditions on this page. If we make material changes to our terms & conditions, we will notify you by updating the effective date of the terms & conditions on this page, which we encourage you to visit each time you use our Website.
