Reservation of rights.
Governing Law; Choice of Forum.
Except for solely equitable claims which may be pursued immediately and directly in court, all claims by a party for breach of this Agreement that are not resolved by mutual written agreement shall be settled by binding arbitration before a single arbitrator under the rules of the American Arbitration Association. The location of such arbitration shall be in the State that Our principal offices are located at the time the dispute arises, or at a location determined by the arbitrator(s). The parties shall mutually agree on an arbitrator or if they cannot, the arbitrator shall be appointed under the rules of the American Arbitration Association. Arbitration may be commenced by either party by giving written notice to the other party that the dispute has been referred to arbitration under this Section. Any award rendered by the arbitrator shall be conclusive and binding upon the parties, provided that any such award shall be accompanied by a written opinion giving the reasons for the award. This Section shall be specifically enforceable by the parties and the decision of the arbitrator may be filed under the Federal Arbitration Act or any equivalent state arbitration act as an award of arbitration and shall be a judgment of record in such court; provided however, that either party may appeal the decision of the arbitrator as if such decision had been rendered by such court sitting without a jury, subject to all court rules and procedures for collection and stay of judgment. Each party shall pay its own expenses of arbitration and the expenses of the arbitrator shall be equally shared. In all cases each of the parties IRREVOCABLY WAIVE ANY AND ALL RIGHT TO A DEMAND A TRIAL BY JURY of any claim arising out of or related to this Agreement or the performance or non performance of either party.
