If any dispute, difference or disagreement of any kind whatsoever arising out of or relating to the Services, these Terms, its breach or interpretation, or the performance of any obligation hereunder (a Dispute) shall arise between you, on the one hand, and us, on the other (in such capacity, each a Disputing Party), the Disputing Parties shall attempt, in good faith, to first resolve or settle the Dispute by mutual discussions. All discussions and negotiations under this Section shall be confidential and shall be treated as compromise and settlement negotiations, and no oral or documentary representations made by the Disputing Parties during the discussions and negotiations shall be admissible for any purpose in any subsequent proceedings. If any Dispute is not resolved within twenty (20) days of receipt by a Disputing Party of notice of a Dispute (or within such longer period as to which the Disputing Parties have agreed in writing), then, on the request of any Disputing Party, the Dispute shall be submitted to first mediation and then arbitration (if necessary) in accordance with this Section.
Any Dispute not resolved by mutual discussions (as set forth above) shall, on the receipt of a demand for mediation, be settled by JAMS through nonbinding mediation administered by JAMS and its mediation rules. Unless otherwise agreed by the Disputing Parties in writing, the mediation shall be held, and the award shall be issued, in Los Angeles, California. The mediation shall be conducted before a single mediator, who shall be neutral and independent of the Disputing Parties. The mediator shall be selected by an agreement between the Disputing Parties, except that if the Disputing Parties are unable to agree to a mediator within twenty (20) days after the receipt of a demand for mediation, each Disputing Party may and shall have the right to demand that JAMS appoint a retired judge. If the Disputing Parties are unable to resolve the Dispute within ninety (90) days following the receipt of a demand for mediation (or such other period as agreed to in writing by the Disputing Parties), then the Dispute may be submitted to arbitration in accordance with this Section.Any Dispute not resolved by mediation (as set forth above) shall, on the receipt of a demand for arbitration, be finally and exclusively settled by JAMS through binding arbitration administered by JAMS in accordance with its Comprehensive Arbitration Rules (the Rules) then in effect. Unless otherwise agreed by the Disputing Parties in writing, the arbitration shall be held, and the award shall be issued, in Los Angeles, California. The arbitration shall be conducted before a single arbitrator, who shall be neutral and independent of the Disputing Parties. The arbitrator shall be selected by an agreement between the Disputing Parties, except that if the Disputing Parties are unable to agree within twenty (20) days after the receipt of a demand for mediation, the arbitrator shall be appointed as provided in the Rules.The Disputing Parties intend to preserve their rights under any applicable law to seek and obtain provisional relief from any court of competent jurisdiction to the extent necessary to preserve the status quo pending the appointment of the mediator or arbitrator (as applicable) or to protect meaningful relief in the mediation or arbitration (as applicable). Once appointed, the mediator shall have the authority to require that the parties resolve any provisional relief in their settlement agreement. To the extent applicable, the arbitrator shall also have full authority to grant provisional remedies and to direct the Disputing Parties to request that any court modify or vacate any temporary or preliminary relief by such court, and to award damages for the failure of any Disputing Party to respect the arbitrator’s orders to that effect.Any arbitration proceeding to enforce, confirm, modify or vacate a decision or award rendered hereunder shall be governed by the Federal Arbitration Act, 9 U.S.C. Â§1 et seq. In arriving at a decision, the arbitrator shall be bound by the terms and conditions of this Agreement and shall apply the governing law of this Agreement without regard to conflicts of law principles. The arbitrator shall award the prevailing party all reasonable costs, expenses and attorneys’ fees incurred in connection with the Dispute proceedings; provided, however, if a Disputing Party fails to either pursue or participate in good faith mutual discussions (i.e., the first paragraph of this Section) or to demand or participate in non-binding mediation before any arbitration proceeding, such Disputing Party shall forfeit any right to recover any costs or expenses in the Dispute (including attorneys’ or expert fees and costs of JAMS) even if such Disputing Party is the prevailing party. The award, which shall be in writing and shall state the findings of fact and conclusions of law upon which it is based, shall be final and binding on the parties and shall be the sole and exclusive remedy between the parties regarding the issues submitted to arbitration. Judgment may be entered in any court of competent jurisdiction.The parties expressly intend and agree that: (a) class action, collective action and representative action procedures shall not be asserted, nor shall they apply, in any Dispute or proceeding pursuant to these Terms; (b) no party shall assert a class, collective or representative claim against the other, in arbitration or otherwise; and (c) each of the parties shall submit only its own, individual claims for resolution and will not seek to represent the interests of any other person.
