Arbitration. Any Claim arising out of or relating to this contract, or the
breach thereof, shall be settled by arbitration administered by the AAA in
accordance with its Commercial Arbitration Rules, which are available at the
AAA website https://www.adr.org/aaa/faces/rules,
or by calling the AAA at 1-800-778-7879. Judgment on the arbitrator’s award may
be entered in any Court of Competent Jurisdiction. Claims shall be heard by a
single arbitrator. The place of arbitration shall be Charlotte, North Carolina.
The arbitration shall be governed by the laws of North Carolina. Hearings will
take place pursuant to the standard procedures of the Commercial Arbitration
Rules that contemplate in-person hearings. The prevailing party shall be
entitled to an award of reasonable attorney fees. The award of the arbitrator
shall be accompanied by a reasoned opinion. Except as may be required by law,
neither a party nor an arbitrator may disclose the existence, content, or
results of any arbitration without the prior written consent of both parties.
Joinder of Claims. You and Company agree that any arbitration shall be
limited to each Claim individually. You and Company agree that each may only
bring claims against the other in an individual capacity, and not as a
plaintiff or class member in any purported class or representative proceeding.
If this specific provision is found to be unenforceable by a Court of Competent
Jurisdiction, the Claim will still be finally and exclusively resolved by
binding arbitration upon the election of either party. Any election to
arbitrate by one party shall be final and binding on the other. No arbitration
shall be joined with any other arbitration. There is no right for any Claim to
be arbitrated on a class-action basis, or to employ class action procedures.
There is no right of authority for any Claim to be brought in a purported
representative capacity on behalf of either the general public or any other
Remedies in Aid of Arbitration or Equitable Relief. As exceptions to
Section 21.2 (Binding Arbitration), any Party may seek, in a Court of Competent
Jurisdiction, provisional remedies in aid of arbitration (including orders to
stay a court action, to compel arbitration, or to confirm an arbitral award) or
equitable relief (including a temporary restraining order, preliminary
injunction, or other interim or conservatory relief). For the avoidance of
doubt, the foregoing shall expressly permit Company to seek injunctive relief
to protect Company’s intellectual property rights.
Claims. If the arbitrator or a Court of Competent Jurisdiction finds that
the substance of a Claim or the relief sought is frivolous, or that a Claim is
brought for an improper purpose (as measured by the standards of Rule 11(b) of
the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure and related case law), then the party
bringing that Claim shall pay all arbitrator fees, attorneys’ fees, and costs
related to that Claim.
Company. Without limiting any other provision of this Agreement, Company
reserves the right to, in Company’s sole discretion and without notice or
liability, deny use of the Service to any person or terminate this Agreement

breach or suspected breach of any representation, warranty, or covenant
