Unless otherwise provided, such amendments will take effect immediately and Retailer’s continued use, advertising, offering for sale, or sale of the Products, use of the Fresh Baitz IP, or use of any other information or materials provided by Fresh Baitz to Retailer following notice of the amendments will be deemed Retailer’s acceptance of the amendments.
  11. 11.    Miscellaneous.        The Terms will be governed by, and interpreted and enforced in accordance with, the laws of the State of Massachusetts without reference to the principles of conflicts of laws. Any disputes or differences occurring between the parties arising out of or in any way relating to the Terms, or their rights and responsibilities to each other, will be settled by arbitration under the then current rules of the American Arbitration Association. The decision and award of the arbitrator(s) will be final and binding and the award so rendered may be entered in any court having jurisdiction thereof. The place of arbitration will be Worcester, Massachusetts or any other place selected by mutual agreement of the parties. Nothing in the foregoing requirement that disputes or differences be submitted to arbitration will prohibit the right to seek provisional or equitable relief from any court having jurisdiction over the parties, including injunctive relief, pending a final award issued by the arbitrator(s); provided, however, this right is not intended to nor will it usurp the obligation of the parties to otherwise resolve such differences in accordance with this paragraph. Furthermore, nothing in the Terms is intended to or shall preclude Fresh Baitz’s ability to commence an action in a court of law for purposes of ascertaining the identity of any unauthorized seller of the Products. If any provision of the Terms is held contrary to law, the remaining provisions shall remain valid.
