  18. The Service, or components thereof, may be subject to United States export controls. You may not download the Service or otherwise export or re-export it into (or to a national or resident of) any country to which the United States has embargoed goods, or to anyone on the U.S. Treasury Department list of Specially Designated Nationals or the U.S. Commerce Department’s Table of Deny Orders. By using the Service, you represent and warrant that you are not located in, under the control of, or a national or resident of any such country or on any such list.
  19. You acknowledge and agree that any controversy arising out of or related to the Terms of Use or the Service or any aspect of the relationship between you and us, whether based in contract, tort, stature, fraud, misrepresentation or any other legal theory, shall be resolved by arbitration administered by the American Arbitration Association ("AAA") under its Commercial Arbitration Rules and Supplementary Procedures for Consumer-Related Disputes, as amended by these Terms of Use. For more information about arbitration and the AAA, please consult the AAA website at www.adr.org. To the extent that the arbitrator deems reasonable, the arbitrator shall conduct hearings, if any, by teleconference or videoconference, rather than by personal appearances. In the event that any in-person appearances are required by the arbitrator, such appearances shall be held in the County of New York in the State of New York. The arbitrator's decision shall be based upon the laws of the State of New York, without giving effect to any principles of conflicts of law. Arbitration proceedings shall be confidential, and shall be conducted in a manner that preserves such confidentiality. The arbitrator's decision shall follow the plain meaning of the relevant documents and shall be final and binding. The award rendered by the arbitrator may be confirmed and enforced in any court having competent jurisdiction thereof, and you agree that federal and state courts in New York County in the State of New York shall have such jurisdiction. You agree that the foregoing shall not preclude us from seeking any injunctive relief in a court of law or equity for protection of our intellectual property rights or the intellectual property rights of our affiliates or licensors. This agreement to arbitrate shall survive termination of the Terms of Use or termination of your access to the Service.
  20. You and we are each waiving the right to trial by jury. You agree that any arbitration brought under these Terms of Use will take place on an individual basis; that class arbitrations and class actions are not permitted; and that you are giving up the ability to participate in a class action.
  21. You may contact Reuters at ReutersTV_Support@reuters.com
  22. These Terms of Use contains the entire agreement between us regarding your use of the Service and supersedes all previous agreements. Should any provision of the Terms of Use be held to be void, invalid, unenforceable or illegal by a court, the validity and enforceability of the other provisions will not be affected thereby. Failure to enforce any provision of the Terms of Use will not constitute or be construed as a waiver of such provision or the right to enforce it. The Terms of Use shall be governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of the State of New York in the United States, without giving effect to any principles of conflicts of law. You hereby agree that any disputes arising under or in connection with the Terms of Use or the Service shall be submitted for resolution to federal and state courts in New York County in the State of New York, and you hereby waive any jurisdictional, venue or inconvenient forum objections to such courts. The United National Convention on the International Sale of Goods shall not apply to the Terms of Use, the Service or any Content.
