Purchaser hereby consents to jurisdiction and waives any venue or other objection to the arbitration proceeding taking place in Maricopa County, Arizona. The arbitration proceeding shall be administered by the AAA under its Commercial Arbitration Rules and the fee schedule in effect at the time the proceeding is commenced.
The arbitration proceeding shall be governed by the Federal Arbitration Act, 9 U.S.C. §1 et. seq. ("FAA") and a final judgment upon the award rendered by the arbitrator may be entered by any court having jurisdiction thereof. Either party may elect to participate in the arbitration telephonically. The parties shall be permitted to conduct discovery in accordance with the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure.
Except to the extent the parties' procedural or substantive rights are governed by the FAA and the federal common law relating to arbitration, this Dispute Resolution Policy shall be governed by the laws of the State of Arizona without regard to its choice of law and conflict of law rules.
The parties agree that any arbitration proceeding will be filed and conducted on an individual, and not a collective or class-wide basis, and shall not be joined or consolidated with another claim or proceeding between one of the parties and any other entity or person. The arbitrator selected under this Dispute Resolution Policy shall have no authority to arbitrate claims on a class-wide, collective, group or consolidated basis.
The parties further expressly agree that (i) the arbitrator's decision will be final and binding; (ii) the arbitrator shall only reach his or her decision by applying strict rules of law to the facts; (iii) the arbitration shall be conducted in the English language; (iv) the party in whose favor the arbitration award is rendered shall be entitled to recover its costs and expenses of the arbitration including, but not limited to, its reasonable attorneys' fees, the costs and expenses of the administration of the arbitration proceedings including the AAA filing fees, and any costs and attorneys' fees incurred in executing on or enforcing the arbitration award; and (v) the arbitral award shall be issued in Maricopa County, Arizona.
Except as otherwise provided herein, no party shall be entitled to commence or maintain any action in a court of law upon any matter in dispute until such matter shall have been submitted and determined as provided herein and then only for the enforcement of the arbitration award. Notwithstanding this Dispute Resolution Policy, SOR may as necessary apply to a court of competent jurisdiction in Maricopa County, Arizona to seek injunctive relief relating to the unauthorized use of Our trademarks, trade name, or other intellectual property (the "Marks"), or to otherwise protect its goodwill and reputation associated with the Marks. The institution of any such action for injunctive relief shall not constitute a waiver of the right or obligation of any party to submit any other claim to arbitration.
Judgment upon the arbitral award or decision may be entered by the Maricopa County Superior Court or the United States District Court for the District of Arizona, or application may be made to such court for the judicial confirmation of the award and order of enforcement, as the case may be, if the Arbitrator's award or decision is not complied with within seven (7) days of the issuance of the award or decision.
