10. DISPUTE RESOLUTION
10.1 Mandatory Arbitration
Neither party will commence an arbitration proceeding pursuant to the provisions set forth below unless that party first gives a written notice (a “Dispute Notice”) to the other party setting forth the nature of the dispute. The parties must attempt in good faith to resolve the dispute through discussions between the parties. If the Dispute has not been resolved as provided above, within sixty (60) days after receipt of the Dispute Notice, or if a party fails to participate in those discussions, then the dispute will be determined by binding arbitration.
Any dispute, claim or controversy arising out of or relating to these Terms or the breach, termination, enforcement, interpretation or validity thereof, including the determination of the scope or applicability of this agreement to arbitrate, shall be determined by arbitration in Seattle, Washington before one arbitrator. The arbitration shall be administered by JAMS pursuant to its Comprehensive Arbitration Rules and Procedures and in accordance with the Expedited Procedures in those Rules or pursuant to JAMS’ Streamlined Arbitration Rules and Procedures. The parties to these Terms agree that the non-prevailing party to any arbitration shall pay any costs related to arbitration, including arbitrators’ fees and administration costs, and reasonable attorney’s fees. Judgment on any award may be entered in any court having jurisdiction.
Notwithstanding the foregoing, claims of infringement or misappropriation of another party’s patent, copyright, trademark, or trade secret shall not be subject to this agreement to arbitrate. Such claims shall be brought exclusively in the state or federal courts of King County, Washington. Additionally, notwithstanding this agreement to arbitrate, the parties shall not be precluded from seeking provisional remedies in aid of arbitration from a court of appropriate jurisdiction.
10.2 Class Action Waiver
ANY DISPUTE RESOLUTION PROCEEDINGS, WHETHER IN ARBITRATION OR COURT, WILL BE CONDUCTED ONLY ON AN INDIVIDUAL BASIS AND NOT IN A CLASS OR REPRESENTATIVE ACTION OR AS A NAMED OR UNNAMED MEMBER IN A CLASS, CONSOLIDATED, REPRESENTATIVE OR PRIVATE ATTORNEY GENERAL ACTION, UNLESS BOTH YOU AND AEOLIDIA SPECIFICALLY AGREE TO DO SO IN WRITING FOLLOWING INITIATION OF AN ACTION. THIS PROVISION IS NOT APPLICABLE TO THE EXTENT SUCH WAIVER IS PROHIBITED BY LAW.
