This agreement to arbitrate will not preclude You or Paladin from seeking provisional remedies in aid of arbitration, including without limitation orders to stay a court action, compel arbitration or confirm an arbitral award, from a court of competent jurisdiction.

Upon termination, Paladin may, but has no obligation to, in Paladin’s sole discretion, rescind any services, and/or delete from Paladin’s systems all Your Personal Information and any other files or information that You made available to Paladin or that otherwise relate to Your use of the Website or Services. Subsequent to termination, Paladin reserves the right to exercise whatever means it deems necessary to prevent Your unauthorized use of the Website and Services, including without limitation technological barriers such as IP mapping and direct contact with Your Internet Service Provider.
E. Legal Action
If Paladin, in Paladin’s discretion, takes legal action against You in connection with any actual or suspected breach of this Agreement, Paladin will be entitled to recover from You as part of such legal action, and You agree to pay, Paladin’s reasonable costs and attorneys’ fees incurred as a result of such legal action. The Paladin Parties will have no legal obligation or other liability to You or to any third party arising out of or relating to any termination of this Agreement.
Upon termination, all rights and obligations created by this Agreement will terminate, except that certain Sections will survive any termination of this Agreement. For clarification, termination of this Agreement will not relieve You of Your obligation, if applicable, to pay any service fees owed to Paladin.
All notices required or permitted to be given under this Agreement must be in writing. Paladin shall give any notice by email sent to the most recent email address, if any, provided by the intended recipient to Paladin. You agree that any notice received from Paladin electronically satisfies any legal requirement that such notice be in writing. YOU BEAR THE SOLE RESPONSIBILITY OF ENSURING THAT YOUR EMAIL ADDRESS ON FILE WITH PALADIN IS ACCURATE AND CURRENT, AND NOTICE TO YOU SHALL BE DEEMED EFFECTIVE UPON THE SENDING BY PALADIN OF AN EMAIL TO THAT ADDRESS.

This Agreement constitutes the entire agreement between Paladin and You concerning Your use of the Website and Services. This Agreement may only be modified by a written amendment signed by an authorized executive of Paladin or by the unilateral amendment of this Agreement by Paladin and by the posting by Paladin of such amended version. If any part of this Agreement is held invalid or unenforceable, that part will be construed to reflect the parties’ original intent, and the remaining portions will remain in full force and effect. A waiver by either party of any term or condition of this Agreement or any breach thereof, in any one instance, will not waive such term or condition or any subsequent breach thereof. This Agreement and all of Your rights and obligations hereunder will not be assignable or transferable by You without the prior written consent of Paladin. This Agreement will be binding upon and will inure to the benefit of the parties, their successors and permitted assigns. You acknowledge and agree that any actual or threatened breach of this Agreement or infringement of proprietary or other third party rights by You would cause irreparable injury to Paladin and Paladin’s licensors and suppliers, and would therefore entitle Paladin or Paladin’s licensors or suppliers, as the case may be, to injunctive relief. The headings in this Agreement are for the purpose of convenience only and shall not limit, enlarge, or affect any of the covenants, terms, conditions or provisions of this Agreement. The phrases and terms “background check”, “validation”, and “certification” are used on this website and in this agreement for convenience only and shall not limit, expand, modify or aid in the interpretation of this agreement.
