Swaggerdile.com as operated by Tigerdile is an online marketplace designed to connect content producers, such as Artists, Writers, or producers of any other media, to end users. These end users intend to support the content producers on a monthly basis, via a subscription in which the end user chooses how much they wish to pay for the content.
Content producers may provide "rewards" for different subscription levels. End users that subscribe to a content producer's profile do so at their own risk, as Tigerdile is not responsible for enforcing the content rewards.
Content created by content producers for distribution via the Service will be known as "Content". Content producers, end users, and other visitors to and of the Service will collectively be known as "Users". Content made available via the service will be considered "Submitted". "User Submissions" refers to any Content Submitted by Users.

Any election to arbitrate by one party will be final and binding on the other. YOU UNDERSTAND THAT IF EITHER PARTY ELECTS TO ARBITRATE, NEITHER PARTY WILL HAVE THE RIGHT TO SUE IN COURT OR HAVE A JURY TRIAL.

The arbitrator must follow applicable law, and any award may be challenged if the arbitrator fails to do so.

YOU ACKNOLWEDGE AND AGREE THAT YOU AND TIGERDILE ARE EACH WAIVING THE RIGHT TO PARTICIPATE AS A PLAINTIFF OR CLASS MEMBER IN ANY PURPORTED CLASS ACTION OR REPRESENTATIVE PROCEEDING. Further, unless both you and Tigerdile otherwise agree, the arbitrator may not consolidate more than one person’s claims, and may not otherwise preside over any form of any class or representative proceeding. If this specific paragraph is held unenforceable, then the entirety of this "Dispute Resolution" Section will be deemed null and void.
LOCATION OF ARBITRATION. Arbitration will take place in Hillsborough County, New Hampshire. You and Tigerdile agree that for any Dispute not subject to arbitration (other than claims proceeding in any small claims court), or where no election to arbitrate has been made, the New Hampshire state and Federal courts located in Hillsborough County, New Hampshire have exclusive jurisdiction and you and Tigerdile agree to submit to the personal jurisdiction of such courts.

Notwithstanding the foregoing, if the subsection entitled "Exceptions to Alternative Dispute Resolution" in Section 20 is found to be illegal or unenforceable, neither you nor Tigerdile will elect to arbitrate any Dispute falling within that portion of that subsection that is found to be illegal or unenforceable and such Dispute will be decided by a court of competent jurisdiction within Hillsborough County, New Hampshire, and you and Tigerdile agree to submit to the personal jurisdiction of that court.

This Agreement constitutes the entire agreement between you and Tigerdile with respect to its subject matter. If any provision of this Agreement is found to be invalid or unenforceable, the remaining provisions will be enforced to the fullest extent possible, and the remaining provisions will remain in full force and effect.
