a "Dispute" and collectively, the “Disputes”) brought by either you or us (individually, a “Party” and collectively,
the “Parties”), the Parties agree to first attempt to negotiate any Dispute (except those Disputes expressly provided
below) informally for at least thirty (30) days before initiating arbitration. Such informal negotiations commence upon
written notice from one Party to the other Party.
If the Parties are unable to resolve a Dispute through informal negotiations, the Dispute (except those Disputes
expressly excluded below) will be finally and exclusively resolved through binding arbitration. YOU UNDERSTAND THAT WITHOUT
THIS PROVISION, YOU WOULD HAVE THE RIGHT TO SUE IN COURT AND HAVE A JURY TRIAL. The arbitration shall be commenced and
conducted under the Commercial Arbitration Rules of the American Arbitration Association ("AAA") and, where
appropriate, the AAA’s Supplementary Procedures for Consumer Related Disputes ("AAA Consumer Rules"), both of
which are available at the AAA website:
Your arbitration fees and your share of arbitrator compensation shall be governed by the AAA Consumer Rules and, where appropriate,
limited by the AAA Consumer Rules. If such costs are determined by the arbitrator to be excessive, we will pay all arbitration
fees and expenses. The arbitration may be conducted in person, through the submission of documents, by phone, or online.
The arbitrator will make a decision in writing but need not provide a statement of reasons unless requested by either
Party. The arbitrator must follow applicable law, and any award may be challenged if the arbitrator fails to do so. Except
where otherwise required by the applicable AAA rules or applicable law, the arbitration will take place in Summit, Ohio.
Except as otherwise provided herein, the Parties may litigate in court to compel arbitration, stay proceedings pending
arbitration, or to confirm, modify, vacate, or enter judgment on the award entered by the arbitrator.
If for any reason, a Dispute proceeds in court rather than arbitration, the Dispute shall be commenced or prosecuted
in the state and federal courts located in Summit, Ohio, and the Parties hereby consent to, and waive all defenses of
lack of personal jurisdiction, and forum non convenient.
