​Dispute Resolution  

To expedite cost and control the cost of any dispute, controversy, case, or claim, collectively, "Dispute," related to these Terms of Use, you agree to first attempt to resolve the Dispute informally before initiating arbitration. Such informal dispute resolution shall commence upon written notice from one party to the other. 

If the parties are unable to resolve the dispute through information dispute resolution, the Dispute will be finally and exclusively arbitrated through binding arbitration. 

YOU UNDERSTAND THAT WITHOUT THIS PROVISION, YOU WOULD HAVE THE RIGHT TO SUE IN COURT AND HAVE A JURY TRIAL.

The arbitration shall be commenced and conducted under the Commercial Rules for Arbitration of the American Arbitration Association ("AAA"), and the applicable Supplementary Procedures. The arbitrator will make a decision in writing, but need not provide a statement of reasons unless requested by either party. The arbitrator must follow applicable law, and any award may be challenged for failure to do so. The arbitration will take place in Camden County, New Jersey. The parties may litigate to compel arbitration, stay proceedings pending arbitration, or to confirm, modify, vacate, or enter judgment on the award entered by the arbitrator. 

If the Dispute proceeds in court rather than in arbitration, the Dispute shall be commenced within the state and federal courts located in Camden County, New Jersey, and the Parties hereby consent and waive all defenses of lack of personal jurisdiction, forum non conveniens with respect to venue and jurisdiction of such state and federal courts. 

In no event, shall any Dispute be brought against the Company more than one (1) year after the cause of action arose.
