If parties are not able to resolve the dispute by negotiation or mediation within thirty (30) days from the date of the written notice of the dispute, the dispute shall be exclusively settled through binding and confidential arbitration. Arbitration shall be subject to the Federal Arbitration Act and not any state arbitration law. The arbitration shall be conducted before one commercial arbitrator with substantial experience in resolving commercial contract disputes from the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”) (adr.org) or Judicial Arbitration and Mediation Services, Inc. (“JAMS”) (jamsadr.com). As modified by this Agreement, and unless otherwise agreed upon by the parties in writing, the arbitration will be governed by the AAA’s or JAMS’s rules for commercial arbitration and, if the arbitrator deems them applicable, the procedures for consumer-related disputes. Parties must abide by the following rules:

(b) the arbitrator may not consolidate more than one person’s claims, may not otherwise preside over any form of a representative or class proceeding, and may not award class-wide relief;
(c) in the event that you are able to demonstrate that the costs of arbitration will be prohibitive as compared to costs of litigation, we will pay as much of your filing and hearing fees in connection with the arbitration as the arbitrator deems necessary to prevent the arbitration from being cost-prohibitive as compared to the cost of litigation;
(d) the arbitrator shall honor claims of privilege and privacy recognized at law;
(e) the arbitrator’s award shall be final and may be enforced in any court of competent jurisdiction;
(f) the arbitrator may award any individual relief or individual remedies that are permitted by applicable law; and

12.3 Waiver of Jury Trial. Except as provided for in Section 12.4: (a) you are giving up your right to go to court to assert or defend your rights, and (b) your rights will be determined by a neutral mediator or arbitrator, not a judge or jury.
12.4 Exclusions. Notwithstanding the foregoing sections:
(a) Either you or we may bring an individual action in small claims court.
(b) Claims of infringement or misappropriation of the other party’s patent, copyright, trademark, or trade secret shall not be subject to mediation or arbitration requirements in Sections 12.1 and 12.2. Such claims shall be exclusively brought in the state or federal courts located in Delaware.
(c) Either party may seek emergency equitable relief before the state or federal courts located in Delaware in order to maintain the status quo pending arbitration, and hereby agree to submit to the exclusive personal jurisdiction of the courts located within Delaware for such purpose.
(d) A request for interim measures shall not be deemed a waiver of the right to mediate or arbitrate.
12.5 Governing Law and Jurisdiction. These Terms and any dispute or claim arising out of or in connection with their subject matter or formation (including non-contractual disputes or claims) shall be governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of the state of Delaware, except that the arbitration provision shall be governed by the Federal Arbitration Act.
