OPTION A: 12. Jurisdiction. The Site is controlled by BidMyTradeIn.com. BidMyTradeIn.com's offices are located within the State of Oregon. All disputes relating to the Materials, the Transmissions, these Terms or any other part of this Site (whether in contract, tort or otherwise, whether statutory, common law or equitable and whether pre-existing, present or future) will be resolved in the state or federal courts for Milwaukie, Oregon, USA. You will not file any action or proceeding in any other jurisdiction, and you waive any argument that those courts are an inconvenient forum.

All disputes (whether in contract, tort or otherwise, whether statutory, common law or equitable and whether pre-existing, present or future) against BidMyTradeIn.com, its agents, employees, affiliates, successors and assigns (collectively, the "BidMyTradeIn.com Affiliates"), relating to the Materials, the Transmissions, these Terms or any other aspect of this Site will be resolved by binding arbitration administered by the Arbitration Service of Portland, Inc.
