- (a) Non-EU Users. If you are located outside the European Economic Area (EEA), all claims and disputes arising under or relating to this agreement are to be settled by binding arbitration with Arbitration Resolution Services, Inc. (ARS). The parties will abide by all rules of ARS as found in their website at www.arbresolutions.com. The arbitrator, and not any federal, state, or local court or agency, will have exclusive authority to resolve all disputes arising out of or relating to the interpretation, enforceability, or formation of this agreement, including any claim that all or any part of this agreement is void or voidable. The arbitration will be conducted in the English language. Each party will be responsible for paying any filing, administrative, and arbitrator fees associated with the arbitration. The arbitrator may grant whatever relief that would be available in a court at law or in equity, except that the arbitrator must not award punitive or exemplary damages, or damages otherwise limited or excluded in this agreement. The arbitrator's award will include costs of arbitration, reasonable legal fees, and reasonable costs for expert and other witnesses. If a party fails to pay any award, the award may be converted to judgment in a court of competent jurisdiction. Unless required by law, neither a party nor an arbitrator will disclose the existence, content, or results of any arbitration under this agreement without the advance written consent of both parties.
