IN NO EVENT SHALL SHORELAND BE LIABLE TO YOU FOR ANY DAMAGE, LIABILITY, LOSS OR CLAIM, OR FOR ANY INDIRECT, INCIDENTAL OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES ARISING OUT OF THE USE OF, OR THE INABILITY TO USE, THE SERVICE OR ANY CONTENT THEREIN, EVEN IF SHORELAND WAS PREVIOUSLY ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES.

This Agreement shall be governed by, and construed and enforced in accordance with, the internal laws of the state of Wisconsin. You hereby stipulate and agree that any action or other legal proceeding arising hereunder shall, at Shoreland's option, be commenced and prosecuted in its entirety in either the United States District Court for the Eastern District of Wisconsin or the Wisconsin Circuit Court for Milwaukee County, Wisconsin, and you agree not to assert in any such action or proceeding that either of such courts lacks personal jurisdiction or is not a convenient forum and you hereby waive, to the fullest extent permitted by law, any other right to contest the jurisdiction and/or venue thereof.
Any controversy or claim arising out of or relating to this Agreement shall be settled by arbitration in the City of Milwaukee, Wisconsin, in accordance with whatever procedures as are mutually agreed between you and Shoreland or, if we fail to so agree within ten (10) days after any party proposes any such procedures, in accordance with the Commercial Arbitration Rules of the American Arbitration Association. The arbitrator shall be such person(s) as are mutually agreed upon between you and Shoreland or, if we fail to so agree within ten (10) days after either party proposes any such person(s), arbitrator(s) selected in accordance with the American Arbitration Association procedure for that purpose. There shall be only one (1) arbitrator, except that, in controversies or claims involving more than Twenty-Five Thousand Dollars ($25,000.00), a party may elect to have three (3) arbitrators in its notice of intention to arbitrate or answering statement. The arbitrator(s) shall award attorneys' fees, arbitration costs and/or other expenses to a prevailing party in such proceedings if the arbitrator(s) determine that an opposing party was not acting in good faith or was acting without substantial justification. Otherwise, the costs of the arbitrator(s) shall be borne equally by you and Shoreland and each party shall pay its own legal and other fees and expenses in connection with such arbitration. The award rendered by the arbitrator(s) shall be final and binding on you and Shoreland and may be entered and enforced by any court of competent jurisdiction. In the event that either you or Shoreland fails to cooperate with arbitration proceedings instituted pursuant to this Section, the cooperating party shall be entitled to recover reasonable attorneys' fees and expenses in connection with enforcing its rights under this Section, in addition to such other legal and/or equitable relief as may be appropriate.
