The arbitration shall be held at any reasonable location near your business by submission of documents, by telephone, online or in person whichever method of presentation you choose. If you prevail in the arbitration of any Dispute with us, we will reimburse You for any fees you paid to AAA in connection with the arbitration. Any decision rendered in such arbitration proceedings will be final and binding on the parties, and judgment may be entered thereon in any court of competent jurisdiction. Except as specifically set forth below, should either party bring a Dispute in a forum other than AAA without the prior written consent of the other party, the arbitrator may award the other party its reasonable costs and expenses, including attorneys’ fees, incurred in staying or dismissing such other proceedings or in otherwise enforcing compliance with this dispute resolution provision.

You must commence an arbitration by filing a demand for arbitration with the AAA within ONE (1) YEAR after the date you first know or reasonably should know of the act, omission or default giving rise to the claim; and you will have no right to any remedy for any claim not asserted within that time period (If applicable law prohibits a one-year limitations period for asserting claims, the claim must be asserted within the shortest time period in excess of one year that is permitted by applicable law.). To the fullest extent permitted by applicable law: no arbitration under or related to this Agreement shall be joined to an arbitration involving any other party, whether through class arbitration proceedings or otherwise; no finding or stipulation of fact in any other arbitration, judicial or similar proceeding may be given preclusive or collateral estoppel effect in any arbitration hereunder (unless determined in another proceeding between you and us); and no conclusion of law in any other arbitration may be given any weight in any arbitration hereunder (unless determined in another proceeding between you and us).
