10. GOVERNING LAW, CHOICE OF FORUM, JURY AND CLASS ACTION WAIVER
Please read the following section carefully, because it limits the manner in which you can seek relief from us.
The laws of the State of Illinois (without giving effect to its conflicts of law principles) govern all matters arising out of or relating to these terms, including, without limitation, their validity, interpretation, construction, performance, and enforcement. All legal proceedings arising out of or in connection with the Site and/or these terms shall be brought solely in the State of Illinois. YOU AND WE HEREBY WAIVE TO THE FULLEST EXTENT PERMITTED BY LAW ANY RIGHT TO TRIAL BY JURY IN ANY ACTION, SUIT OR RELATED PROCEEDING BROUGHT TO ENFORCE, DEFEND OR INTERPRET ANY RIGHTS OR REMEDIES ARISING UNDER, RELATING TO OR IN CONNECTION WITH THE SITE OR THESE TERMS.

11. INJUNCTIVE RELIEF
In the event that you breach any of the requirements or conditions of your use of the Site, including these Terms, you acknowledge and agree that we will be greatly and irreparably damaged, and the damage will be difficult to quantify. Therefore, we may apply to any court of competent jurisdiction accepting jurisdiction under this specific provision, who, regardless of the Governing Law provision, will apply the laws of its own jurisdiction in determining whether we will be granted an injunctive or other equitable relief to stop your breach or your threat of breach, without impairing, invalidating, negating or voiding our rights to relief in either law or equity.
12. GENERAL LEGAL TERMS
If any provision of these Terms is held to be unenforceable, this holding will not affect the validity of the other provisions.
These Terms are for the benefit of us, our affiliates and licensors, and each will have the right to assert and enforce such provisions directly or on its own behalf.
Our failure to insist upon or enforce strict performance of any of these Terms will not be considered a waiver of any provision or right, which will continue to be available to us.
