SUBJECT TO THE ARBITRATION CLAUSE OF THIS AGREEMENT, YOU AGREE THAT THE STATE COURTS LOCATED IN THE STATE OF MISSOURI WILL HAVE EXCLUSIVE JURISDICTION AND VENUE OF ACTION TO ENFORCE ALL COLLECTION ACTIONS BROUGHT TO ENFORCE THIS AGREEMENT. If you are not a resident of the United States at the time a dispute or controversy arises, you consent to the personal jurisdiction of all courts located in the State of Missouri for purposes of enforcing your promise to pay pursuant to the terms of this Agreement; and you agree that all proceeding will take place in St. Louis, Missouri.
Class Action Waiver
You agree, to the extent permitted by law that you will not bring, join or participate in any class action or multiple-plaintiff action as to any claim, dispute, or controversy you may have against us.

This agreement does not constitute a waiver of any of your rights and remedies to pursue a claim individually.
No person shall bring a putative or certified class action to arbitration, nor seek to enforce any pre-dispute arbitration against any person who has initiated in court a putative class action; or who is a member of a putative class until: (a) the class certification is denied; or (b) the class is decertified; or (c) the customer is excluded from the class by the court.

The law of the State of Missouri shall govern all claims, disputes or controversies brought to arbitration pursuant to the terms of this Agreement. The arbitration proceedings shall be conducted before a panel of three arbitrators who shall be chosen in accordance with the rules of the AAA. The arbitrators shall have the authority to award any remedy or relief that a court of the State of Missouri could order or grant, including, without limitation, specific performance of any obligation created under the Agreement, the awarding of punitive damages, the issuance of an injunction, or the imposition of sanctions for abuse or frustration of the arbitration process. YOU AGREE THAT ARBITRATION AWARD SHALL BE FINAL AND BINDING.
If you are not a resident of the United States at the time a controversy subject to arbitration arises, you agree that any arbitration hearing shall be held in St. Louis Missouri; you consent to the personal jurisdiction of all courts located in the State of Missouri for purposes of enforcing this arbitration agreement and any arbitration award; and you agree that any arbitration proceeding shall be conducted in English language.
