All decisions of the arbitrator shall be final and binding on both parties and enforceable in any court of competent jurisdiction. Notwithstanding this, application may be made to any court for a judicial acceptance of the award or order of enforcement. Notwithstanding the foregoing, Seven Bridges shall be entitled to seek injunctive relief, security or other equitable remedies from the United States District Court for a district in Massachusetts or any other court of competent jurisdiction.

Moreover, if we seek to terminate the arbitration procedures from these Terms of Service, such termination shall not be effective until 30 days after the version of these Terms of Service not containing the arbitration procedures is posted to the Website, and shall not be effective as to any claim that was filed in a legal proceeding against Seven Bridges prior to the effective date of removal.
