In the event of a dispute arising under or relating to this Agreement, the Content, or the Website (each, a “Dispute”), the parties agree to first submit the matter to mediation to be conducted by a mutually selected, qualified neutral, third-party attorney/mediator located in Seattle, WA, which mediation may occur in-person, online (via webcams), or telephonically, and shall be scheduled within 30 days of either party providing the other with a request to mediate. Should mediation fail to resolve the dispute, either party may request that the dispute be resolved by confidential, binding arbitration governed by the Federal Arbitration Act (“FAA”). An election by either part to arbitrate shall be final and binding on the other party. IF ARBITRATION IS ELECTED, NEITHER PARTY SHALL HAVE THE RIGHT TO LITIGATE SUCH CLAIM IN COURT OR TO HAVE A JURY TRIAL. DISCOVERY AND APPEAL RIGHTS MAY ALSO BE LIMITED IN ARBITRATION. All disputes between the parties will be resolved before a neutral arbitrator whose decision shall be final except for a limited right of appeal under the FAA. Any court in King County, WA may enforce the arbitrator’s award. The arbitration may be conducted in person, through the submission of documents, by phone, or online and shall be conducted by a qualified JAMS or similarly experienced arbitrator. If conducted in person, the arbitration shall take place in Seattle, WA. The parties may litigate in court to compel arbitration, to stay proceeding pending arbitration, or to confirm, modify, vacate, or enter judgment on the award entered by the arbitrator. In addition, we may litigate in court to seek injunctive relief.
You agree that any legal claims or proceeding shall be limited to the Dispute between us and you, individually.
