Disputes and governing law:

For any action at law or in equity relating to the arbitration provision of these terms of use, the excluded disputes, or if you opt out of the arbitration provision, you agree to resolve any dispute you have with us exclusively in competent court sitting in Delaware, and to submit to the personal jurisdiction of these courts for the purpose of litigating all such disputes.
