9.8. Applicable Laws
This Agreement will be governed by and construed in accordance with the internal laws of the State of Oklahoma, excluding that body of laws known as choice of law or conflict of laws.

Section 1, et seq. (the "Act"); and (iii) this Agreement. The arbitration will be conducted in accordance with the provisions of J.A.M.S.'s Streamlined Arbitration Rules and Procedures in effect at the time of filing of the demand for arbitration (the "JAMS Rules"), subject to the provisions of this Section. The terms set forth in this Agreement will control in the event of any inconsistency between such terms and the JAMS Rules. The parties will cooperate with JAMS and with each other in promptly selecting a single arbitrator from JAMS's panel of neutrals. If the parties fail to so select an arbitrator within thirty (30) days following the date of either party's notice of demand to conduct arbitration, then JAMS will appoint an arbitrator in accordance with the JAMS Rules.

The Federal Trade Commission in the United States (“FTC”) has guidelines for governing endorsements and testimonials. These rules are aimed at increasing transparency between endorsers and consumers. As a member of the Partner Program with Motolingo, Partner receives compensation for the referrals made to Motolingo that generate revenue. This may establish a “material connection” according to FTC rules, which creates an obligation for Partner to provide disclosure to consumers.
Full compliance with these guidelines requires that information be provided by Partner to Customers clearly and conspicuously, outlining that Partner is being compensated for referring Customers to Motolingo. For further information Partner may refer to the statement released by the FTC regarding these guidelines.
