Arbitration. Any Dispute shall be FINALLY and EXCLUSIVELY resolved by binding individual arbitration conducted by the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”) under its Consumer Arbitration Rules.

You may request a telephonic or in-person hearing by following the AAA rules.

The arbitrator may award the same damages to you individually as a court could. The arbitrator may award declaratory or injunctive relief only to you individually, and only to the extent required to satisfy your individual claim. Nothing herein prohibits us from asking the arbitrator to award all costs of the arbitration including any Administrative Fees paid on your behalf.
