(b) The Parties will try in good faith to settle any Dispute within thirty (30) days after the Dispute arises. If the Dispute is not resolved within thirty (30) days, it must be resolved by arbitration by the American Arbitration Association’s International Centre for Dispute Resolution in accordance with its Expedited Commercial Rules in force as of the date of this Terms ("Rules"). (c) The Parties will mutually select one arbitrator. The arbitration will be conducted in English in Santa Clara County, California, USA.

The arbitrator may order equitable or injunctive relief consistent with the remedies and limitations under these Terms. (e) Any Party may petition any competent court to issue any order necessary to protect that Party's rights or property; this petition will not be considered a violation or waiver of this governing law and arbitration section and will not affect the arbitrator’s powers, including the power to review the judicial decision. The Parties stipulate that the courts of Santa Clara County, California, USA, are competent to grant any order under these Terms. (f) The arbitral award will be final and binding on the Parties and its execution may be presented in any competent court, including any court with jurisdiction over any Party or any of its property.

(h) The Parties will pay the arbitrator’s fees, the arbitrator's appointed experts' fees and expenses, and the arbitration center's administrative expenses in accordance with the Rules. In its final decision, the arbitrator will determine the non-prevailing Party's obligation to reimburse the amount paid in advance by the prevailing Party for these fees.
