We will try work in good faith to resolve any issue you have with Site, including Services ordered or purchased through the Site, if you bring that issue to the attention of our customer service department. However, we realize that there may be rare cases where we may not be able to resolve an issue to a User’s satisfaction.

You and Parallel and the Parallel Professionals agree that any disputes, claims, suits, actions, causes of action, demands or proceedings (collectively, “Disputes”) arising out of or relating in any way to these Terms or your use of the Site, including Services ordered or purchased through the Site, shall be determined by binding arbitration instead of in courts of general jurisdiction. You agree that, by agreeing to these Terms, the U.S. Federal Arbitration Act governs the interpretation and enforcement of this provision, and that you and Parallel and the Parallel Professionals are each waiving the right to a trial by jury or to participate in a class action. This arbitration provision shall survive termination of these Terms and any other contractual relationship between you and and Parallel and the Parallel Professionals.
No Class Arbitrations, Class Actions or Representative Actions. You and Parallel agree that any Dispute arising out of or related to these Terms or the Services is personal to you and Parallel, and that such Dispute will be resolved solely through individual arbitration and will not be brought as a class arbitration, class action or any other type of representative proceeding. You and Parallel agree that there will be no class arbitration or arbitration in which an individual attempts to resolve a Dispute as a representative of another individual or group of individuals. Further, you and Parallel agree that a Dispute cannot be brought as a class or other type of representative action, whether within or outside of arbitration, or on behalf of any other individual or group of individuals. The arbitrator does not have the power to vary these class action waiver provisions.
Federal Arbitration Act. You and Parallel agree that these Terms affect interstate commerce and that the enforceability of this Section shall be both substantively and procedurally governed by and construed and enforced in accordance with the Federal Arbitration Act, 9 U.S.C. § 1 et seq. (the “FAA”), to the maximum extent permitted by applicable law.
Process. You and Parallel agree that:
(a) any arbitration will occur in the County of New Castle, Delaware or telephonically;
(b) arbitration will be conducted confidentially by a single arbitrator in accordance with the American Arbitration Association’s (“AAA”) Consumer Arbitration Rules that are in effect at the time the arbitration is initiated, as modified by the terms set forth herein (“AAA Rules”), which are hereby incorporated by reference, and
(c) that the seat of the arbitration shall be the County of New Castle, Delaware and that state or federal courts of Delaware and the United States have exclusive jurisdiction over any litigation in aid of arbitration and the enforcement of any arbitration awards. Authority of Arbitrator.
As limited by the FAA, these Terms and the applicable AAA rules, the arbitrator will have:
(a) the exclusive authority and jurisdiction to make all procedural and substantive decisions regarding a Dispute, including the determination of whether a Dispute is arbitrable, and
(b) the authority to grant any remedy that would otherwise be available in court; provided, however, that the arbitrator does not have the authority to conduct a class arbitration or a representative action, which is prohibited by these Terms. The arbitrator may only conduct an individual arbitration and may not consolidate more than one individual’s claims, preside over any type of class or representative proceeding or preside over any proceeding involving more than one individual. Notwithstanding any other provision of this Section, any and all issues relating to the scope, interpretation and enforceability of the class action waiver provisions contained in this Section, are to be decided only by a court of competent jurisdiction, and not by the arbitrator.
26. NO WAIVER
No waiver by Parallel or the Parallel Professionals of any term or condition set forth in these Terms shall be deemed a further or continuing waiver of such term or condition or a waiver of any other term or condition, and any failure by Parallel or the Parallel Professionals to assert a right or provision under these Terms shall not constitute a waiver of such right or provision.

You may not assign any of your rights under these Terms, and any such attempt will be null and void. Parallel, the Parallel Professionals, and their affiliates may, in their individual discretion, transfer, without further consent or notification, all contractual rights and obligations pursuant to these Terms if some or all of the business of Parallel is transferred to another entity by way of merger, sale of its assets or otherwise.
You agree that any violation, or threatened violation, by you of these Terms will cause us irreparable and unquantifiable harm. You also agree that monetary damages would be inadequate for such harm and consent to our obtaining any injunctive or equitable relief that we deem necessary or appropriate. These remedies are in addition to any other remedies we may have at law or in equity.
