  17. SEVERABILITY. If any provision of this Agreement is determined to be illegal, invalid or unenforceable, such determination will not affect the legality, validity or enforceability of any other provision of this Agreement.

  18. NO WAIVER. Any waiver, amendment, supplementation or modification of any provision of this Agreement will be effective only if it is in writing and signed by Pioneer and you.

  19. GOVERNING LAW. If You are a resident of any EU member state, this Agreement is governed by and will be construed in accordance with Belgian law. If you are a resident of the United States, this Agreement is governed by and will be construed in accordance with the laws of the State of California, U.S.A. If you are resident of any territory outside the United States or the EU, this Agreement is governed by and will be construed in accordance with the laws of Japan.

  20. JURISDICTION. The parties will use good faith efforts to resolve amicably any dispute or controversy that may arise out of or in relation to or in connection with this Agreement, or any breach hereof.
    In the event no amicable settlement can be reached, if You are a resident of an EU member state, the parties can choose to finally settle all claims arising out of or relating to this Agreement (including its formation, interpretation, applicability, enforceability, performance and breach) and the Program by binding arbitration. If you are a resident of a territory other than an EU member state, all such claims shall be finally settled by binding arbitration as provided herein. If parties agree to settle claims by arbitration, such arbitration shall be conducted under the arbitration rules of the International Chamber of Commerce by three arbitrators designated in accordance with those rules. If You are a resident of an EU member state, then the arbitration shall be held in Brussels, Belgium, in the English language. If you are a resident of the United States, then the arbitration shall be held in Los Angeles County, California. If you are a resident of any other territory, then the arbitration shall be held in Tokyo, Japan. The award of arbitration will be final and binding upon other parties and will have the reasoning therein.
    For residents of EU member states, in case the parties do not agree to settle claims through arbitration, the Belgian courts shall have exclusive jurisdiction to settle all claims arising out of or relating to this Agreement (including its formation, interpretation, applicability, enforceability, performance and breach) and the Program.

  21. ENTIRE AGREEMENT. This Agreement constitutes the entire agreement between Pioneer and you with respect to the subject matter of this Agreement. Sections 5 through 16 will survive the termination of this Agreement. The term "including" shall mean "including without limitation."
