(individually, a “Party” and collectively, the “Parties”), the Parties agree to first attempt to
negotiate any Dispute (except those Disputes expressly provided below) informally for at least 90
days before initiating arbitration. Such informal negotiations commence upon written notice

If the Parties are unable to resolve a Dispute through informal negotiations, the Dispute (except
those Disputes expressly excluded below) will be finally and exclusively resolved through binding
arbitration. YOU UNDERSTAND THAT WITHOUT THIS PROVISION, YOU WOULD HAVE THE RIGHT
TO SUE IN COURT AND HAVE A JURY TRIAL. The arbitration shall be commenced and conducted
under the Commercial Arbitration Rules of the American Arbitration Association ("AAA") and,
where appropriate, the AAA’s Supplementary Procedures for Consumer Related Disputes ("AAA
Consumer Rules"), both of which are available at the AAA website: www.adr.org. Your arbitration
fees and your share of arbitrator compensation shall be governed by the AAA Consumer Rules
and, where appropriate, limited by the AAA Consumer Rules. The 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 Worcester , Massachusetts. Except as otherwise

arbitration, or to confirm, modify, vacate, or enter judgment on the award entered by the

proceeding; (b) there is no right or authority for any Dispute to be arbitrated on a class-action
