MANDATORY ARBITRATION EXCEPT FOR MATTERS RELATING TO COMPANY INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY
EXCEPT WITH RESPECT TO ANY CLAIM OR DISPUTE INVOLVING THE OWNERSHIP, VALIDITY OR USE OF ANY COMPANY’S PATENTS, TRADEMARKS OR SERVICE MARKS, AND EXCEPT AS AND TO THE EXTENT BOTH PARTIES AGREE OTHERWISE IN A WRITING EXPRESSLY INTENDED TO MODIFY THIS AGREEMENT, ANY DISPUTE ARISING OUT OF OR RELATED TO THIS AGREEMENT OR MATERIALS (INCLUDING ANY CLAIM THAT ANY PROVISION OF THIS AGREEMENT OR MATERIALS ARE INVALID, ILLEGAL, OR OTHERWISE VOIDABLE OR VOID), SHALL BE SUBMITTED FOR CONFIDENTIAL, BINDING, INDIVIDUAL ARBITRATION TO THE AMERICAN ARBITRATION ASSOCIATION (AAA). You and COMPANY waive any rights to maintain other available resolution processes for such disputes, such as a court action or administrative proceeding, to settle disputes. YOU AND COMPANY HEREBY WAIVE ANY RIGHT YOU MAY NOW HAVE OR HEREAFTER POSSESS TO A TRIAL BY JURY. The rules in arbitration are different from the rules that apply in court. There is no judge or jury, and review is limited, but an arbitrator can award the same damages and relief as a court would.
Company shall have the right in a proper case where it may suffer irreparable harm to move to obtain a temporary restraining order or temporary or preliminary injunctive relief and/or declaratory relief (other than declarations with respect to the amount of money damages) from a court of competent jurisdiction. You agree that the exclusive jurisdiction for any such action, or any action between you and Company that is not covered by the terms of the arbitration provision in this Agreement, shall be filed only in the Northern District of Texas or, if there is no federal jurisdiction over the action, in the State of Texas Civil District Court for the County of Dallas. You hereby consent and submit to the personal jurisdiction of such courts for the purposes of litigating any such action with Company.
Any arbitration proceeding between you and Company shall be heard by one independent arbitrator who shall be an attorney or retired judge. The arbitration shall be held in New York, New York and in accordance with the then-existing Commercial Arbitration Rules of the AAA. All matters within the scope of the Federal Arbitration Act (9 U.S.C. 1, et seq.) will be governed by it and not by any state arbitration law
Discovery during the arbitration proceeding shall be limited. Documents or information may not be requested from any period more than two years prior to the commencement of the arbitration unless both parties agree or it is permitted by the arbitrator for good cause shown. Interrogatories and requests for admissions shall not be permitted. The exchange of electronic discovery shall not be permitted. The parties shall be limited to 15 requests for production of documents. All documents will be provided in paper form. Each party may take no more than three depositions, including third-party depositions, each of which shall last no more than three hours. You and Company may bring dispositive motions, including motions to dismiss the arbitration demand and summary award motions before the commencement of the hearing. If brought, the arbitrator shall decide these motions three weeks or more before the commencement of the arbitration hearing. Each party shall provide its expert reports to the other side 15 days or more before the commencement of the arbitration hearing.
The party who commences the arbitration will pay the initial arbitration fee. All other arbitration fees or costs, including the cost of the independent arbitrator, shall be split between you and Company unless the arbitrator rules otherwise.
In reaching his or her decision, the arbitrator shall follow this Agreement, including the Limitations of Liability provisions in this Agreement, shall be bound to apply the applicable law and shall not rule inconsistently with the applicable law. The arbitrator shall include in his or her award any relief he or she deems proper in terms of money damages (with interest on unpaid amounts from the date due ), and reasonable attorneys’ fees and costs. The arbitrator is not required to issue a reasoned decision. The award of the arbitrator shall be conclusive and binding upon all parties hereto and judgment upon the award may be entered in any court of competent jurisdiction.
Other than as may be required by law, the entire arbitration proceedings (including, but not limited to, any rulings, decisions or orders of the arbitrator), shall remain confidential and not be disclosed to anyone other than the parties to this Agreement.
The foregoing waiver of a jury trial, waiver of litigation in court or other forums besides AAA arbitration, and other waivers outlined in the Class Action, Collective Action, Representative Action, and Class-Wide Arbitration Waivers section above and in this Mandatory Arbitration section shall not apply to the extent that applicable law in your place of residence requires application of another law and/or jurisdiction and cannot be excluded by contract.
