PLEASE READ THE FOLLOWING SECTION CAREFULLY BECAUSE IT REQUIRES YOU TO ARBITRATE DISPUTES WITH SONARMD AND LIMITS THE MANNER IN WHICH YOU CAN SEEK RELIEF FROM US, INCLUDING A CLASS ACTION WAIVER.

You and SonarMD agree to (a) waive your and SonarMD’s respective rights to have any and all disputes, claims, suits, actions, causes of action, demands, or proceedings (each and collectively, the “Disputes”) arising from or related to this TOS, the Products and Services, User Content, or any law, rule, or regulation, resolved in court, and (b) WAIVE YOUR AND SONARMD’S RIGHT TO TRIAL BY JURY IN ANY SUCH DISPUTE AND AGREE TO TAKE ANY AND ALL ACTION NECESSARY OR APPROPRIATE TO EFFECT SUCH WAIVER. Instead, you and SonarMD agree to arbitrate all Disputes through binding arbitration (which is the referral of a Dispute to one or more persons charged with reviewing the Dispute and making a final and binding determination to resolve it instead of having the Dispute decided by a judge or jury in court) as provided in this Section 19.
19.2. No Class Arbitrations, Class Actions, or Representative Actions
You and SonarMD agree that any Dispute arising from or related to this TOS, the Products and Services, User Content, or any law, rule, or regulation, is personal to you and SonarMD 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 SonarMD 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 SonarMD 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.
19.3. Federal Arbitration Act
You and SonarMD agree that this TOS affects interstate commerce and that the enforceability of this Section 19 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.
19.5. Statute of Limitations; Arbitration Process
YOU AND SONARMD AGREE THAT ANY DISPUTE MUST BE COMMENCED OR FILED BY YOU OR SONARMD WITHIN ONE (1) YEAR OF THE DATE THE DISPUTE AROSE, OTHERWISE THE UNDERLYING CLAIM IS PERMANENTLY BARRED (WHICH MEANS THAT YOU AND SONARMD WILL NO LONGER HAVE THE RIGHT TO ASSERT SUCH CLAIM REGARDING THE DISPUTE). You and SonarMD agree that (a) any arbitration will occur in the State of Illinois County of Cook, (b) arbitration will be conducted confidentially by a single arbitrator in accordance with the rules of the Judicial Arbitration and Mediation Services (“JAMS”), which are hereby incorporated by reference, and (c) that the state or federal courts of the State of Illinois and the United States, respectively, sitting in the State of Illinois, County of Cook, have exclusive jurisdiction over any appeals and the enforcement of an arbitration award. You may also litigate a Dispute in the small claims court located in the county of your billing address if the Dispute meets the requirements to be heard in small claims court.
19.6. Authority of Arbitrator
As limited by the FAA, this TOS, and the applicable JAMS rules, the arbitrator will have (a) the exclusive authority and jurisdiction to make all procedural and substantive decisions regarding a Dispute, including without limitation 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 this TOS. 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.
19.7. Rules of JAMS
The rules of JAMS and additional information about JAMS are available on the JAMS website. By agreeing to be bound by this TOS, you either (a) acknowledge and agree that you have read and understand the rules of JAMS, or (b) waive your opportunity to read the rules of JAMS and any claim that the rules of JAMS are unfair or should not apply for any reason.
If any term, clause, or provision of this Section 19 is held invalid or unenforceable, it will be so held to the minimum extent required by law, and all other terms, clauses, and provisions of this Section 19 will remain valid and enforceable. Further, the waivers set forth in Sections 19.1 and 19.2 are severable from the other provisions of this TOS and will remain valid and enforceable, except as prohibited by applicable law.
SonarMD may furnish you with notices, including without limitation those with regards to any changes to the TOS or Disputes, including without limitation email, regular mail, MMS or SMS, text messaging, postings on the Products and Services, or other reasonable means currently known or any which may be herein after developed.

These TOS, and any rights or licenses granted hereunder, may not be transferred or assigned by you without the prior written consent of SonarMD. If any term, clause, or provision of this TOS is held invalid or unenforceable, then that term, clause, or provision will be severable from this TOS and will not affect the validity or enforceability of any remaining part of that term, clause, or provision, or any other term, clause, or provision of this TOS. No waiver of any provision of this TOS will constitute a waiver of such provision in any prior, concurrent, or subsequent circumstance, and SonarMD’s failure to assert any right or provision under this TOS shall not constitute a waiver of such right or provision.
