DISPUTE RESOLUTION & MANDATORY ARBITRATION

You agree to contact us with disputes by contacting us at email@example.com. We will contact you based on the contact information you have provided us. If after 30 days the parties are unable to resolve any dispute raised under the previous provision, the dispute may only be submitted to arbitration consistent with paragraph 17. The parties understand that they would have had a right or opportunity to litigate disputes through a court and to have a judge or jury decide their case, but they choose to have any disputes resolved through arbitration.

- Exception to Arbitrate. Either of us may bring qualifying claims in small claims court.
