To expedite resolution and control the cost of any dispute, controversy, or claim related to these Terms
of Use (each 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 by 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 www.adr.org. 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. 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 USA County, Delaware.
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 USA County, Delaware, and the Parties
hereby consent to, and waive all defenses of lack of personal jurisdiction, and forum non conveniens

provision found to be illegal or unenforceable and such Dispute shall be decided by a court of
competent jurisdiction within the courts listed for jurisdiction above, and the Parties agree to submit to
the personal jurisdiction of that court.
The Parties agree that any arbitration shall be limited to the Dispute between the Parties individually. To
the full extent permitted by law, (a) no arbitration shall be joined with any other proceeding; (b) there is
no right or authority for any Dispute to be arbitrated on a class-action basis or to utilize class action
procedures; and (c) there is no right or authority for any Dispute to be brought in a purported
representative capacity on behalf of the general public or any other persons.
Exceptions to Informal Negotiations and Arbitration
The Parties agree that the following Disputes are not subject to the above provisions concerning
informal negotiations and binding arbitration: (a) any Disputes seeking to enforce or protect, or
concerning the validity of, any of the intellectual property rights of a Party; (b) any Dispute related to, or
arising from, allegations of theft, piracy, invasion of privacy, or unauthorized use; and (c) any claim for
injunctive relief. If this provision is found to be illegal or unenforceable, then neither Party will elect to
arbitrate any Dispute falling within that portion of this provision found to be illegal or unenforceable and
such Dispute shall be decided by a court of competent jurisdiction within the courts listed for jurisdiction
above, and the Parties agree to submit to the personal jurisdiction of that court.
