JHAH operates and/or administers the Site from within the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia and does not make any representation that features, functionality or other content of the Site are available, appropriate or lawful in any other jurisdiction. Access to such content from jurisdictions where such access is illegal is a violation of these Terms of Use.

You agree not to access or utilize any features, functionality or other content obtained from or through the Site except in compliance with all applicable laws, regulations, orders or other restrictions.

These Terms of Use will be governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, without giving effect to its Conflict-of-Laws provisions. Subject to the provisions concerning injunctive relief described below, any controversy or claim arising out of or relating to these Terms of Use or the breach hereof shall be settled exclusively by arbitration in Al-Khobar, Saudi Arabia, in accord with the Arbitration Regulations, Council of Ministers Decision No. 164, dated 21 Jumada II 1403 (the “Regulations”) and the Rules For Implementation of the Arbitration Regulations effective as of 10 Shawwal 1405 (the “Rules”) and any amendments to either then in force, by one or more arbitrators appointed in accordance with the Regulations, the Rules and this Contract. Unless the parties agree otherwise within thirty (30) days from the date on which written notice of referral to arbitration by one party is received by the other party (the “notice date”), the arbitration will be conducted by and before three arbitrators, who will be appointed as follows. Each party will appoint one arbitrator, after first ascertaining that the appointee consents to act, and notify the other party in writing of the appointment within sixty (60) days from the notice date. The appointed arbitrators will agree upon and appoint the third arbitrator, after first ascertaining that the appointee consents to act, and notify the parties in writing of the appointment within ninety (90) days from the notice date. The arbitrator(s) selected will be impartial, and will have had no interest in or previous connection with the matters in dispute. Neither past or present employees or directors of either party, legal counsel retained by either party, nor persons related to these persons will be selected as arbitrators. If the parties are unable to agree upon the applicable rules of procedure, the arbitrators will by majority vote establish the applicable rules of procedure. The parties hereby explicitly consent to the appointment of arbitrators in accordance with the Regulations and Rules and these Terms of Use, and the parties expressly agree that the arbitrators so appointed are arbitrators and not conciliators, and have no authority to effect conciliation. If, at any time, any arbitrator who was appointed by one of the parties dies, withdraws or otherwise becomes incapable of acting, he will be replaced with another arbitrator by the party who appointed him within a period of thirty (30) days from his death or from the date on which the remaining arbitrators serve a joint, written notice of such withdrawal or incapacity upon the parties. If, at any time, any arbitrator who was appointed by agreement of the parties or by the remaining arbitrators dies, withdraws, or otherwise becomes incapable of acting, he will be replaced by agreement of the parties or by the remaining arbitrators within a period of sixty (60) days from his death, or from the date on which the remaining arbitrators serve a joint, written notice of such withdrawal or incapacity upon the parties. In the event of the replacement of any arbitrator, the arbitration proceedings will thereupon, insofar as possible, be continued without rehearing unless all the parties and the arbitrators agree to recommence the proceedings. The arbitrators will base their award only upon the evidence presented to them, the terms of the contractual arrangements between the parties, and the laws of Saudi Arabia. The arbitrators will assess in their award the amount of the costs and expenses of arbitration and the arbitrators’ fees. These costs, expenses and fees will be paid by the party who has lost the arbitration. If each party has partly lost and partly won, the arbitrators will apportion the costs, expenses and fees between the parties. This arbitration provision will be specifically enforceable by both parties under the Regulations and Rules, and the award of the arbitrators will be final and binding upon the parties. Should any part of this Contract or any other agreements arising out of or relating to it be null and void by force of law, such nullity will not otherwise affect the validity of the arbitration provisions. Any such claim must be brought within one (1) year following the date on which the claimant knew or reasonably should have known that the claim or cause of action arose. Notwithstanding the foregoing, JHAH will have the right to seek and obtain from any court of competent jurisdiction preliminary injunctive relief against unauthorized access to or use of the features, functionality or other content of the Site, or other breaches of these Terms of Use, pending the outcome of the arbitration proceeding filed or to be filed with respect to such claim; provided, that under no circumstances shall any such application for preliminary injunctive relief be construed as or constitute a waiver of JHAH’s right to require arbitration of the substance of any such claim as provided above.

All rights not expressly granted in these Terms of Use are reserved to JHAH. No other rights or licenses, whether express, implied, arising by estoppel, or otherwise are conveyed or intended by these Terms of Use. The failure of either party at any time to require the performance by the other party of any provision of these Terms of Use shall in no way affect the right of such party to require performance of that provision. Any waiver by either party of any breach of any provision of these Terms of Use shall not be construed as a waiver of any continuing or succeeding breach of such provisions, a waiver of the provision itself, or a waiver of any right under these Terms of Use. If any part of these Terms of Use is invalid or unenforceable, that part will be construed, limited, modified, or, severed so as to eliminate its invalidity or unenforceability, except to the extent that such invalidity or unenforceability gives rise to a fundamental failure of consideration. Failure of any party to perform any obligation under these Terms of Use caused by governmental restrictions, labor disputes, emergency, unavailability of services or materials, or other causes beyond the reasonable control of the party and which could not have been avoided by the party’s use of due care shall not be deemed a breach of these Terms of Use, and if any time period for performance is involved, such period shall be deemed extended accordingly, provided that this sentence shall not apply to the payment of monies. Under local law and treaties, the restrictions and limitations of these Terms of Use may not apply to you; you may have other rights and remedies, and be subject to other restrictions and limitations.
