18.    Severability 

If any provision of these Terms, or the application thereof to any person, place or circumstance, shall be held by a court of competent jurisdiction or a final arbitration award to be invalid, void or otherwise unenforceable, the remainder of these Terms and such provision as applied to other persons, places and circumstances shall remain in full force and effect. 

19.    Waiver

Judgment on any award rendered by the arbitrator may be entered in any court of competent jurisdiction. Notwithstanding any contrary provisions, any arbitration shall be conducted and resolved solely on an individual basis and not a class-wide, multiple plaintiff, or similar basis.

Do Not Track (DNT)

DNT is a concept that has been promoted by regulatory agencies such as the U.S. Federal Trade Commission (FTC) for the Internet industry to develop and implement a mechanism for allowing Internet users to control the tracking of their online activities across websites by using browser settings. The World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) has been working with industry groups, Internet browsers, technology companies, and regulators to develop a DNT technology standard. While some progress has been made, it has been slow and no standard has been adopted to date. As such, WCIRB does not generally respond to "do not track" signals.
