    THE FOLLOWING ARBITRATION PROVISIONS SIGNIFICANTLY AFFECT YOUR RIGHTS IN ANY DISPUTE WITH US. PLEASE READ THE FOLLOWING DISCLOSURES AND THE ARBITRATION PROVISION THAT FOLLOWS CAREFULLY BEFORE YOU ACCESS ANY OTHER PART OF THIS SITE OR UTILIZE ANY OF THE SERVICES.

    1. If either you or we choose, any dispute between you and us will be decided by arbitration and not in court.
    2. If such dispute is arbitrated, you and we will give up the right to a trial by a court or a jury trial.
    3. You agree to give up any right you may have to bring a class-action lawsuit or class arbitration, or to participate in either as a claimant, and you agree to give up any right you may have to consolidate your arbitration with the arbitration of others.
    4. The information that can be obtained in discovery from each other or from third persons in arbitration is generally more limited than in a lawsuit.
    5. Other rights that you and/or we would have in court may not be available in arbitration.
    6. Any claim or dispute, whether in contract, tort or otherwise (including any dispute over the interpretation, scope, or validity of this Agreement, arbitration section or the arbitrability of any issue), between you and us or any of our employees, agents, successors or assigns, which arises out of or relates to this Agreement or any resulting transaction or relationship arising out of this Agreement shall, at the election of either you or us, or our successor or assigns, be resolved by a neutral, binding arbitration and not by a court action. Any claim or dispute is to be arbitrated on an individual basis and not as a class action. Whoever first demands arbitration may choose to proceed under the applicable rules of the National Center for Dispute Settlement, 43230 Garfield Road, Suite 130, Clinton Township, MI 48038 or the Internet at http://www.ncdsusa.org, or any other organization that you may choose subject to our approval.
    7. Whichever rules are chosen, the arbitrator shall be an attorney or retired judge and shall be selected in accordance with the applicable rules. The arbitrator shall apply the law in deciding the dispute. Unless the rules require otherwise, the arbitration award shall be issued without a written opinion. The arbitration hearing shall be conducted in the federal district in which you reside. If you demand arbitration first, you will pay the claimant’s initial arbitration filing fees or case management fees required by the applicable rules up to $125, and we will pay any additional initial filing fee or case management fee. We will pay the whole filing fee or case management fee if we demand arbitration first. We will pay the arbitration costs and fees for the first day of arbitration, up to a maximum of eight hours. The arbitrator shall decide who shall pay any additional costs and fees. Nothing in this paragraph shall prevent you from requesting that the applicable arbitration entity reduce or waive your fees, or that we voluntarily pay an additional share of said fees, based upon your financial circumstances or the nature of your claim.
    8. This Agreement evidences a transaction involving interstate commerce. Any arbitration under this Agreement shall be governed by the Federal Arbitration Act (9 USC 1, et seq.). Judgment upon the award rendered may be entered in any court having jurisdiction.
    9. If any clause within this Arbitration section, other than clause C or any similar provision dealing with class action, class arbitration or consolidation, is found to be illegal or unenforceable, that clause will be severed from this Arbitration section, and the remainder of this Arbitration section will be given full force and effect. If any part of clause C or any similar provision dealing with class action, class arbitration or consolidation is found to be illegal or unenforceable, then this entire Arbitration section will be severed and the remaining provisions of this Agreement shall be given full force and effect as if the Arbitration section of this contract had not been included in this Agreement.
