- BINDING ARBITRATION.
Arbitration shall be conducted by and submitted to a single arbitrator (“Arbitrator”) selected from and administered by the Charleston, South Carolina office of JAMS (“JAMS”), in accordance with its then-existing Comprehensive Arbitration Rules & Procedures. The arbitration shall be conducted by a licensed attorney or retired judge who is admitted in both federal and state courts, with experience in technology law. The Arbitrator shall be authorized to award compensatory damages, but shall NOT be authorized to award non-economic damages such as for emotional distress, or pain and suffering or punitive or indirect, incidental or consequential damages. Each Party shall bear its own attorneys’ fees, cost and disbursements arising out of the arbitration, and shall pay an equal share of the fees and costs of the Arbitrator and JAMS; however, the Arbitrator may award to the prevailing Party reimbursement of its reasonable attorneys’ fees and costs (including, for example, expert witness fees and travel expenses), and/or the fees and costs of the Arbitrator. Within ﬁfteen (15) calendar days after conclusion of the arbitration, the Arbitrator shall issue a written award and a written statement of decision describing the material factual ﬁndings and conclusions on which the award is based, including the calculation of any damages awarded. Each Party shall fully perform and satisfy the arbitration award within fifteen (15) days of the service of the award. Judgment on the award may be entered by any court of competent jurisdiction. By agreeing to this binding arbitration provision, you understand that you are waiving certain rights and protections which may otherwise be available if a claim or dispute were determined by litigation in court, including, without limitation, the right to seek or obtain certain types of damages precluded by this arbitration provision, the right to a jury trial, certain rights of appeal, the right to bring a claim as a class member in any purported class or representative proceeding, and the right to invoke formal rules of procedure and evidence.
