16. DISPUTE RESOLUTION:
You agree to resolve any dispute, claim, or controversy arising out of or relating to your use of the Service in the following manner.

We both agree that, in the event of arbitration, or in the event of a lawsuit as permitted by this Section or otherwise, the prevailing party shall be entitled to costs and fees (including reasonable attorneys’ fees). Arbitration pursuant to this Section shall be confidential, and neither you, nor Talkable, nor the arbitrator may disclose the existence, content or results of any arbitration, except as may be required by law or for purposes of enforcement or appeal of the arbitration award.

18. SEVERABILITY AND WAIVER
If, for whatever reason, any term or condition in these Terms is deemed unenforceable, all other terms and conditions will remain unaffected and in full force and effect. The failure to enforce any provision of these Terms is not a waiver of our right to do so later, and no waiver shall be effective unless made in writing and signed by an authorized representative of the waiving party.
These Terms shall be binding on the parties and their respective successors and assigns. These Terms may be assigned by Talkable without restriction. These Terms may not be assigned or otherwise transferred by you without our prior written consent.
