    5. Initiation of Arbitration Proceeding; Selection of Arbitrator.  If you or Gravel elect to resolve your dispute through arbitration, the party initiating the arbitration proceeding may initiate it with the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”).
    6. Arbitration Procedures.  Because the software and/or service provided to you by Gravel concern interstate commerce, the Federal Arbitration Act (“FAA”) governs the arbitrability of all disputes.  However, applicable federal or state law may also apply to the substance of any disputes.  For claims of less than $75,000, the AAA’s Consumer Arbitration Rules shall apply; for claims over $75,000, the AAA’s Commercial Arbitration Rules and relevant fee schedules for non-class action proceedings shall apply.  The AAA rules are available at www.adr.org or by calling 1-800-778-7879.  Further, if your claims do not exceed $75,000 and you provided notice to, and negotiated in good faith with, Gravel as described above, and if the arbitrator finds that you are the prevailing party in the arbitration, you will be entitled to recover reasonable attorneys’ fees and costs as determined by the arbitrator, in addition to any rights to recover the same under controlling state or federal law afforded to Gravel or you. The arbitrator will make any award in writing but need not provide a statement of reasons unless requested by a party.  Such award will be binding and final, except for any right of appeal provided by the FAA, and may be entered in any court having jurisdiction over the parties for purposes of enforcement.
    7. Location of Arbitration.  You or Gravel may initiate arbitration in either Orange County, California or the county in which you reside.  If you initiate arbitration in the county of your residence, Gravel may transfer the arbitration to Orange County, California provided that Gravel agrees to pay any additional fees or costs you incur as a result of the change in location, as determined by the arbitrator.
    8. Severability.  If any clause within this Section 8 (other than the Class Action Waiver clause of Section 8.4) is found to be illegal or unenforceable, that clause will be severed from this Section 8 and the remainder of this Section 8 will be given full force and effect.  If the Class Action Waiver (Section 8.4) clause is found to be illegal or unenforceable, this entire Section 8, except for this Section 8.8, will be unenforceable and the dispute will be decided by a court and IN THAT INSTANCE, YOU AND GRAVEL EACH WAIVE AND AGREE TO WAIVE ANY RIGHT TO TRIAL BY JURY, TO THE EXTENT ALLOWED BY LAW.
    9. Survival.  This Section 8 shall survive any termination of the Terms.
  9. General Provisions.
    1. Updates to the Terms and Privacy Policy.
      1. Right to Update.  Gravel reserves the right, at our discretion, to change, modify, add or remove portions of these Terms and our Privacy Policy at any time by posting the amended Terms or Privacy Policy through the Service.  You may also be given additional notice, such as an email message or messaging within the Service, of any changes.  You will be deemed to have accepted such changes by continuing to use the Service.  Except as otherwise stated, all amended terms shall automatically be effective thirty (30) calendar days after they are initially posted.  Gravel may also revise other policies, codes or rules at any time and the new versions will be available on www.GRAVELPARKING.COM/PUBLICPOLICIES or through the Service.  No amendment to the Terms or Privacy Policy shall apply to any dispute of which Gravel had actual notice before the date of the amendment.
      2. Seeking Consent.  If Gravel revises these Terms or its Privacy Policy and seeks your consent to be bound by such revised Terms or revised Privacy Policy and you do not agree to be bound by such revised Terms or revised Privacy Policy before using the Service again, then notwithstanding anything to the contrary, Gravel reserves the right to terminate your Account and use of the Service.
      3. Disagreement With Terms.  If at any time you do not agree to any provision of the then-current version of our Terms, the Privacy Policy or any other Gravel policy, rule or code of conduct relating to your use of the Service, your right to use the Service will immediately terminate, and you must immediately stop using the Service.
      4. Conflict.  To the extent these Terms or the Privacy Policy conflict with any other Gravel terms, policy, rule, or code of conduct, the provisions of these Terms and the Privacy Policy will prevail.
    2. Severability.  If any provision of these Terms or the Privacy Policy is found invalid, illegal, or unenforceable, in whole or in part, by any court of competent jurisdiction, such provision will, as to such jurisdiction, be ineffective solely to the extent of such determination of invalidity, illegality, or unenforceability without affecting the validity, legality, or enforceability thereof in any other manner or jurisdiction and without affecting the remaining provisions of the Terms, which will continue to be in full force and effect.
    3. Assignment.  Gravel may assign any of its rights or delegate any of its obligations under these Terms, in whole or in part, to any person or entity at any time without your consent.  You may not assign or delegate any rights or obligations under the Terms without the prior written consent of Gravel; any purported assignment or delegation in violation of this Section 9.3 is void.
    4. Supplemental Policies.  Gravel may publish additional policies related to specific services such as forums, contests, or loyalty programs.  Your use, if any, of such services is subject to such specific policies and these Terms.
    5. Entire Agreement.  These Terms, together with any supplemental policies, the Privacy Policy, and any other documents expressly incorporated by reference herein, contain the entire agreement between Gravel and you with respect to the subject matter hereof and supersede all prior and contemporaneous understandings, agreements, representations and warranties of the parties hereto relating to the subject matter hereof, whether electronic, oral or written, or whether established by custom, practice, policy or precedent.
    6. No Waiver.  The failure of Gravel to require or enforce strict performance by you of any provision of these Terms or the Privacy Policy or failure to exercise any right under them shall not be construed as a waiver or relinquishment of Gravel’s right to assert or rely upon any such provision or right in that or any other instance. The express waiver by Gravel of any provision, condition or requirement of these Terms or the Privacy Policy shall not constitute a waiver of any future obligation to comply with such provision, condition or requirement.  Except as expressly and specifically set forth in these Terms, no representations, statements, consents, waivers or other acts or omissions by Gravel shall be deemed a modification of these Terms nor legally binding, unless documented in physical writing, hand signed by you and a duly appointed officer of Gravel.
    7. Notices.  We may notify you via postings on www.GRAVELPARKING.COM/REQUIREDNOTICES and via email or any other communications means through contact information you provide to us.  All notices given by you or required from you under these Terms or the Privacy Policy shall be in writing and addressed to the address in this Section 9.7.  Any notices that you provide without compliance with this Section 9.7 shall have no legal effect.

  1. Equitable Remedies.  You acknowledge that the rights granted and obligations made under these Terms to Gravel are of a unique and irreplaceable nature, the loss of which shall irreparably harm Gravel and which cannot be replaced by monetary damages alone, so that Gravel shall be entitled to injunctive or other equitable relief (without the obligations of posting any bond or surety or proof of damages) in the event of any breach or anticipatory breach by you.  You irrevocably waive all rights to seek injunctive or other equitable relief, or to enjoin or restrain the operation of the Service, exploitation of any advertising or other materials issued in connection therewith, or exploitation of the Service or any content or other material used or displayed through the Service and agree to limit your claims to claims for monetary damages, limited by Section 7.2.
