XIV. Dispute Resolution and Arbitration; Class Action Waiver
Please read this carefully. It affects your rights.
Most customer concerns can be resolved quickly and to a customer’s satisfaction by contacting us at
Please read this Provision carefully. It provides that all Disputes between you and The Judean shall be resolved by binding arbitration. Arbitration replaces the right to go to court. In the absence of this arbitration agreement, you may otherwise have a right or opportunity to bring claims in a court, before a judge or jury, and/or to participate in or be represented in a case filed in court by others (including, but not limited to, class actions). Except as otherwise provided, entering into this agreement constitutes a waiver of your right to litigate claims and all opportunities to be heard by a judge or jury. There is no judge or jury in arbitration, and court review of an arbitration award is limited. The arbitrator must follow this agreement and can award the same damages and relief as a court (including attorney’s fees).
For the purpose of this Provision, “The Judean” means The Judean and its parents, subsidiary, and affiliate companies, and each of their respective officers, directors, employees, and agents. The term “Dispute” means any dispute, claim, or controversy between you and The Judean regarding any aspect of your relationship with The Judean, whether based on contract, statute, regulation, ordinance, tort (including, but not limited to, fraud, misrepresentation, fraudulent inducement, or negligence), or any other legal or equitable theory, and includes the validity, enforceability or scope of this Provision (with the exception of the enforceability of the Class Action Waiver clause below). “Dispute” is to be given the broadest possible meaning that will be enforced, and shall include any claims against other parties relating to services or products provided or billed to you (such as The Judean’s licensors, suppliers, dealers or third-party vendors) whenever you also assert claims against us in the same proceeding.
WE EACH AGREE THAT, EXCEPT AS PROVIDED BELOW, ANY AND ALL DISPUTES, AS DEFINED ABOVE, WHETHER PRESENTLY IN EXISTENCE OR BASED ON ACTS OR OMISSIONS IN THE PAST OR IN THE FUTURE, WILL BE RESOLVED EXCLUSIVELY AND FINALLY BY BINDING ARBITRATION RATHER THAN IN COURT IN ACCORDANCE WITH THIS PROVISION.
XV. GOVERNING LAW
This Agreement shall be governed in accordance with the the laws of the State of Israel, the European Union and applicable international digital communication laws, without regard to choice or conflict of law provisions. Except for disputes subject to arbitration as described above, you agree to submit to the personal and exclusive jurisdiction of the federal and state courts located in Jerusalem, Israel for resolution of any disputes arising out of or relating to this Agreement or your use of the Website.
XVII. WAIVER AND SEVERABILITY OF UNENFORCEABLE PROVISIONS
If The Judean does not exercise or enforce any right under this Agreement, it doesn’t mean that it waives such right. Likewise, if a court holds that any portion of this Agreement is unenforceable, that portion shall be deemed severable from rest of this Agreement and the fact that it is unenforceable will not affect the validity and enforceability of the remaining provisions.
XVIII. OPINION DISCLAIMER; NO AGENT RELATIONSHIP
The views expressed in the articles labeled “Opinion” on this domain are those of the authors alone. They do not represent the views and opinions of The Judean, or its staff.
XIX. ENTIRE AGREEMENT

Any and all other written or oral agreements or understandings previously existing between you and The Judean with respect to your use of the Web Site are hereby superseded and canceled.
