The parties agree to negotiate in good faith to resolve any dispute between them regarding this Agreement.

If such representatives in such meeting cannot resolve the disputes, the parties agree that they shall, if requested in writing by either party, meet within thirty (30) days after such written notification for one day with an impartial mediator and consider dispute resolution alternatives other than litigation. The mediation will be treated as a settlement discussion and therefore will be confidential and may not be used in a later evidentiary proceeding. The mediator may not testify for either party in any later proceeding relating to the dispute. No recording or transcript shall be made of the mediation proceedings. Each party will bear its own costs in the mediation. The parties will share the fees and expenses of the mediator equally. If an alternative method of dispute resolution is not agreed upon within thirty (30) days after the one-day mediation, either party may invoke arbitration proceedings for resolution of disputes.
The arbitration will be conducted in Alabama in English language, in accordance with the rules of the International Chamber of Commerce (“Rules”).

c. Upon rendering an award or a decision, the Arbitrator shall set forth in writing findings of fact, conclusions of law and a reasoned opinion explaining the basis of such award or decision, and shall make a determination of which party shall be considered the prevailing party, which determination shall be consistent with such reasoned opinion.
d. The Arbitrator shall be empowered to issue injunctive or other equitable relief.
e. Judgment on the award or any other final or interim decision rendered by the Arbitrator may be entered, registered or filed for enforcement purposes in any court having jurisdiction thereof.

WITH RESPECT TO ALL PERSONS AND ENTITIES, REGARDLESS OF WHETHER THEY HAVE OBTAINED OR USED THE SERVICES FOR PERSONAL, COMMERCIAL OR OTHER PURPOSES, ALL CLAIMS MUST BE BROUGHT IN THE PARTIES’ INDIVIDUAL CAPACITY, AND NOT AS A PLAINTIFF OR CLASS MEMBER IN ANY PURPORTED CLASS ACTION, COLLECTIVE ACTION, PRIVATE ATTORNEY GENERAL ACTION OR OTHER REPRESENTATIVE PROCEEDING. THIS WAIVER APPLIES TO CLASS ARBITRATION, AND, UNLESS WE AGREE OTHERWISE, THE ARBITRATOR MAY NOT CONSOLIDATE MORE THAN ONE PERSON’S CLAIMS. YOU AGREE THAT, BY ENTERING INTO THIS AGREEMENT, YOU AND QUOTESHARK ARE EACH WAIVING THE RIGHT TO A TRIAL BY JURY OR TO PARTICIPATE IN A CLASS ACTION, COLLECTIVE ACTION, PRIVATE ATTORNEY GENERAL ACTION, OR OTHER REPRESENTATIVE PROCEEDING OF ANY KIND.
