YOU HEREBY WAIVE THIS SECTION OF THE CALIFORNIA CIVIL CODE. YOU HEREBY WAIVE ANY SIMILAR PROVISION IN LAW, REGULATION, OR CODE THAT HAS THE SAME INTENT OR EFFECT AS THE AFOREMENTIONED RELEASE. YOU RELEASE US FROM ANY LIABILITY RELATING TO ANY TIS CONTENT, OUR SERVICES, AND PRODUCTS SOLD, AND YOU RELEASE US, OUR DIRECTORS, OFFICERS, EMPLOYEES, AND AGENTS FROM ANY CLAIMS AND DAMAGES, KNOWN AND UNKNOWN, ARISING OUT OF OR IN ANY WAY CONNECTED WITH ANY CLAIM YOU HAVE AGAINST US. THIS RELEASE DOES NOT APPLY TO NEW JERSEY USERS.
You agree to defend, indemnify and hold harmless TIS , its officers, directors, employees and agents, from and against any and all claims, damages, obligations, losses, liabilities, costs or debt, and expenses (including but not limited to attorney's fees) arising from:
your use of any TIS or TIS Content;
your violation of any term of this Agreement; and
your use of the TIS Site.
This defense and indemnification obligation will survive this Agreement.

You agree that this indemnity extends to requiring you to pay for our reasonable attorneys’ fees, court costs, and disbursements. In the event of a claim such as one described in this paragraph, we may elect to settle with the party/parties making the claim and you shall be liable for the damages as though we had proceeded with a trial.

By using this Site, you agree that: (1) any claim, dispute, or controversy you may have against us, TIS or the Site arising out of, relating to, or connected in any way with this Agreement or any products purchased shall be resolved exclusively by final and binding arbitration administered by the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”) and conducted before a single arbitrator pursuant to the applicable Consumer Rules and Procedures established by AAA (“Rules and Procedures”); (2) the claim or dispute must be brought within one (1) year of the first date of the event giving rise to such action (does not apply to New Jersey users) and the arbitration shall be held in Phoenix, AZ or at such other location as may be mutually agreed upon by you and TIS; (3) the arbitrator shall apply Arizona law consistent with the Federal Arbitration Act and applicable statutes of limitations, and shall honor claims of privilege recognized at law; (4) there shall be no authority for any claims to be arbitrated on a class or representative basis; arbitration can decide only your and/or TIS ’s individual claims; and the arbitrator may not consolidate or join the claims of other persons or parties who may be similarly situated (this does not apply to New Jersey users); (5) both parties will bear their own costs of representation and filing for the dispute; (6) where possible and allowed for under the AAA Rules and Procedures both parties shall be entitled to appear electronically or telephonically for all proceedings; and (7) with the exception of subpart (4) above, if any part of this arbitration provision is deemed to be invalid, unenforceable or illegal, or otherwise conflicts with the Rules and Procedures established by AAA, then the balance of this arbitration provision shall remain in effect and shall be construed in accordance with its terms as if the invalid, unenforceable, illegal or conflicting provision were not contained herein. If, however, subpart (4) is found to be invalid, unenforceable or illegal, then the entirety of this Arbitration Provision shall be null and void, and neither you nor TIS shall be entitled to arbitrate their dispute.

17. Class Action Waiver
You and TIS agree that any proceedings to resolve or litigate any dispute whether through a court of law or arbitration shall be solely conducted on an individual basis. You agree that you will not seek to have any dispute heard as a class action, representative action, collective action, or private attorney general action.

In the event that a provision of this Agreement is found to be unlawful, conflicting with another provision of the Agreement, or otherwise unenforceable, the Agreement will remain in force as though it had been entered into without that unenforceable provision being included in it.
If two or more provisions of this Agreement or any other agreement you may have with TIS are deemed to conflict with each other’s operation, you agree that TIS shall have the sole right to elect which provision remains in force.
We reserve all rights permitted to us under this Agreement as well as under the provisions of any applicable law. Our non-enforcement of any particular provision or provisions of this Agreement or any applicable law should not be construed as our waiver of the right to enforce that same provision under the same or different circumstances at any time in the future.
All provisions of this Agreement which by their nature should survive termination shall survive termination, including, without limitation, ownership provisions, warranty disclaimers, indemnity and limitations of liability. You agree that we are not required to provide you with access to our Site and may terminate our Site at any time and for any reason.
