arbitration may be conducted in person, through the submission of documents, by
phone, or online. 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 if the arbitrator fails to do so. Except where otherwise required by
the applicable AAA rules or applicable law, the arbitration will take place
in United States County, North Carolina. Except as otherwise
provided herein, the Parties may litigate in court to compel arbitration, stay
proceedings pending arbitration, or to confirm, modify, vacate, or enter
judgment on the award entered by the arbitrator.

If for any reason, a
Dispute proceeds in court rather than arbitration, the Dispute shall be
commenced or prosecuted in the state and federal courts located
in Buncombe County, North Carolina, and the Parties hereby
consent to, and waive all defenses of lack of personal jurisdiction, and forum
non conveniens with respect to venue and jurisdiction
in such state and federal courts. Application of the United Nations
Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods and the Uniform Computer Information Transaction Act (UCITA)
are excluded from these Terms of Use.

In no event shall any
Dispute brought by either Party related in any way to the Site be commenced
more than one (1) years after the cause of action arose. If this
provision is found to be illegal or unenforceable, then neither Party will
elect to arbitrate any Dispute falling within that portion of this provision
found to be illegal or unenforceable and such Dispute shall be decided by a
court of competent jurisdiction within the courts listed for jurisdiction
above, and the Parties agree to submit to the personal jurisdiction of that
court.

Restrictions

The Parties agree that
any arbitration shall be limited to the Dispute between the Parties
individually. To the full extent permitted by law, (a) no arbitration shall be
joined with any other proceeding; (b) there is no right or authority for any
Dispute to be arbitrated on a class-action basis or to utilize class action
procedures; and (c) there is no right or authority for any Dispute to be
brought in a purported representative capacity on behalf of the general public
or any other persons.

Exceptions to Informal Negotiations and
Arbitration

The Parties agree that
the following Disputes are not subject to the above provisions concerning
informal negotiations and binding arbitration: (a) any Disputes seeking to
enforce or protect, or concerning the validity of, any of the intellectual
property rights of a Party; (b) any Dispute related to, or arising from,
allegations of theft, piracy, invasion of privacy, or unauthorized use; and (c)
any claim for injunctive relief. If this provision is found to be illegal or
unenforceable, then neither Party will elect to arbitrate any Dispute falling
within that portion of this provision found to be illegal or unenforceable and
such Dispute shall be decided by a court of competent jurisdiction within the
courts listed for jurisdiction above and the Parties agree to submit to the
personal jurisdiction of that court.
