  1. Governing Law.

You and Company agree to submit to the exclusive jurisdiction and venue of the courts located in the City and County of Los Angeles, California, except as provided below in this Agreement.

  3. Arbitration of Disputes. You and Duo Marriage Information Co., agree that any disputes arising out of or related to the Services, this Agreement and/or any policies or practices of Duo Marriage Information Co. (a “Dispute”) will be subject to FINAL AND BINDING ARBITRATION as set forth in this section, and may only be resolved through an individual arbitration governed by the Federal Arbitration Act, to the maximum extent permitted by applicable law.

Failure to file an arbitration claim as described above within the applicable limitations period constitutes a waiver of such claim and serves as a complete bar to any claim based on any Dispute.
  7. Right to Seek Injunction. Violation of this Agreement may cause Duo Marriage Information Co. irreparable harm, and therefore agree that Duo Marriage Information Co. will be entitled to seek extraordinary relief in court, including but not limited to temporary restraining orders, preliminary injunctions and permanent injunctions without the necessity of posting a bond or other security, in addition to and without prejudice to any other rights or remedies that Duo Marriage Information Co. may have for a breach of this Agreement
