Each party shall bear its own costs and expenses and an equal share of the arbitrators’ and administrative fees of arbitration. The award of the arbitrators shall be accompanied by a reasoned opinion. Any arbitration decision will be final and both parties must comply 100% with the final decision.   Any other recourse that is taken outside the arbitration process to damage the company’s (BizCentral USA) reputation, this will be considered malicious attempt of defamation of character in which our company reserves the right to file a civil suit with King County Washington Clerk of Court for damages, legal fees, and court cost.  Any civil litigation by any party must be placed in King County, Washington

Revision Policy

Our service consultants strive to provide quality service at the most cost effective price for our customers; however in order to do so we require that you provide quality, comprehensive information to be included therein. Your service order is ultimately a compilation of your organization’s approved content, please keep in mind that the final product will be a direct result of the quality of information provided to us.
Included with specific writing, creative, and graphic design services is a revision opportunity (please review specific product terms). We require that all requested revisions be submitted to us at one time, in writing, and within 7 days of receipt of the service draft. If revision request is not received within 7 days we will assume that the draft is acceptable and will move forward with service completion. We understand that clients may have additional needs; therefore we encourage you to consider purchasing a maintenance plan or additional time. To maintain our affordable prices, we provide limitations on time allocated to preparation and revisions on each order.   However, additional time or revisions may be purchased at our low hourly rates.
Revisions only apply on products such as:  business plans, strategic plans, grant writing, web sites, and graphic design work for which client feedback and approval is required.
There are no revisions on form products.  For example, IRS Form 1023 is very technical, 32 pages and mostly check boxes, where the correct information needs to be selected and entered by our experienced staff.  Once we send you a final completed form, if there is a change or correction needed, we will make the change/correction and send back to you before you submit to the pertinent agency.

18. Miscellaneous

This Agreement shall be treated as though it were executed and performed in Renton, Washington, and shall be governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of the State of Washington (without regard to conflict of law principles). Any cause of action by you with respect to the Site (and/or any information, Documents, products or services related thereto) must be instituted within one (1) year after the cause of action arose or be forever waived and barred. All actions shall be subject to the limitations set forth in Section 16 and Section 17. The language in this Agreement shall be interpreted as to its fair meaning and not strictly for or against any party. Any rule of construction to the effect that ambiguities are to be resolved against the drafting party shall not apply in interpreting this Agreement. This Agreement and all incorporated agreements and your information may be automatically assigned by us in our sole discretion to a third party in the event of an acquisition, sale or merger. If any provision of this agreement is held illegal, invalid or unenforceable for any reason, that provision shall be enforced to the maximum extent permissible, and the other provisions of this Agreement shall remain in full force and effect. If any provision of this Agreement is held illegal, invalid or unenforceable, it shall be replaced, to the extent possible, with a legal, valid, and unenforceable provision that is similar in tenor to the illegal, invalid, or unenforceable provision as is legally possible. To the extent that anything in or associated with the Site is in conflict or inconsistent with this Agreement, this Agreement shall take precedence.

19. Dispute Resolution

In the event of any dispute, claim, question, or disagreement arising from or relating to this agreement or the breach thereof, the parties hereto shall use their best efforts to settle the dispute, claim, question, or disagreement. To this effect, they shall consult and negotiate with each other in good faith and, recognizing their mutual interests, attempt to reach a just and equitable solution satisfactory to both parties. If they do not reach such solution within a period of 30 days, then, upon notice by either party to the other, all disputes, claims, questions, or differences shall be finally settled only by the arbitration process administered by the American Arbitration Association in accordance with the provisions of its Commercial Arbitration Rules.

20. Arbitration

The arbitration process administered by the American Arbitration Association in accordance with the provisions of its Commercial Arbitration Rules shall be conducted in the language in which the contract was written. This agreement shall be governed by and interpreted in accordance with the laws of the State of Washington. The parties acknowledge that this agreement evidences a transaction involving interstate commerce. The United States Arbitration Act shall govern the interpretation, enforcement, and proceedings pursuant to the arbitration clause in this agreement. In no event shall an award in an arbitration initiated under this clause exceed the value of the product or service provided under this agreement. Each party shall bear its own costs and expenses and an equal share of the arbitrators’ and administrative fees of arbitration.
Any legal controversy or legal claim arising out of or relating to this Agreement or our services, excluding legal action taken by us relating to Site operations and/or intellectual property, shall be settled solely by confidential binding arbitration in accordance with the commercial arbitration rules applicable at the time the arbitration commences. Any such controversy or claim shall be arbitrated on an individual basis, and shall not be consolidated in any arbitration with any claim or controversy of any other party. Each party shall bear one-half of the arbitration fees and costs incurred.   The award of the arbitrators shall be accompanied by a reasoned opinion. Any arbitration decision will be final and in the event any other recourse is taken outside the arbitration process to damage the company’s (BizCentral USA) reputation. This will be considered malicious attempt of defamation of character in which our company reserves the right to file a civil suit in Orange County Florida court for damages, legal fees and court cost. Except as may be required by law, neither a party nor an arbitrator may disclose the existence, content, or results of any arbitration here-under without the prior written consent of both parties.
