The arbitration shall be performed under the Arbitration Act 1996 of the United Kingdom available at http://www.legislation.gov.uk.

Construction and performance of this Agreement and the legal relations between the parties hereto shall be under the law of the United Kingdom without regard to its conflict of laws provisions.

User shall have no right to assign this Agreement.
