10. Governing Law, Venue, and Dispute Resolution
The laws of the state of Michigan, U.S.A., excluding its conflicts-of-law rules, govern this Agreement and your use of the Shift Reports Services. You agree that any disputes between you and Shift Reports shall be adjudicated in the state and federal courts of the State of Michigan, U.S.A. Venue for all claims and disputes between you and Shift Reports shall be the county of Oakland, State of Michigan. You hereby consent to venue and personal jurisdiction in such courts with respect to such claims or disputes and irrevocably waive any right that such party may have to assert that such forum is not convenient or that any such court lacks jurisdiction.

Notwithstanding the adjudication requirement above, for any dispute involving $10,000 or less, the party requesting relief may choose to resolve the dispute through binding, non-appearance-based arbitration (i.e., arbitration conducted online, through written filings, and/or via teleconference). Such arbitration shall be conducted through an established alternative dispute resolution service mutually agreed on by the parties, and any judgment rendered by the arbitrator may be entered in any court having jurisdiction.
Some jurisdictions may place limits on governing law, venue, and/or dispute resolution provisions, so certain of the foregoing requirements in this section may not apply to you.

11. Severability
If any portion of these terms and conditions is determined to be unenforceable under applicable law, that portion shall be construed as nearly as possible to reflect the original intentions of the parties. All remaining terms set forth herein shall continue to have full force and effect.
