- 16.1 PLEASE READ THIS SECTION 16 CAREFULLY, IT AFFECTS RIGHTS THAT YOU MAY OTHERWISE HAVE. IT PROVIDES FOR RESOLUTION OF MOST DISPUTES THROUGH ARBITRATION INSTEAD OF COURT TRIALS AND CLASS ACTIONS.

ARBITRATION IS FINAL AND BINDING AND SUBJECT TO ONLY VERY LIMITED REVIEW BY A COURT.
- 16.2 Binding Arbitration.

All issues are for, and delegated to, the arbitrator to decide, including issues relating to the scope and enforceability of this agreement to arbitrate or the jurisdiction of the arbitrator.
- 16.3 The arbitration of any dispute or claim shall be conducted in accordance with the rules of the American Arbitration Association ("AAA"), including the AAA's Consumer Arbitration Rules (as applicable), as modified by these Terms.

You and TWG agree that these Terms evidence a transaction in interstate commerce and this arbitration provision will be interpreted and enforced in accordance with the U.S. Federal Arbitration Act and federal arbitration law, and not governed by state law. Any arbitration shall be confidential, and neither you nor TWG may disclose the existence, content or results of any arbitration, except as may be required by law or for purposes of enforcement of the arbitration award. Judgment on any arbitration award may be entered in any court of competent jurisdiction.
- 16.4 Exceptions. Notwithstanding the “Binding Arbitration” paragraphs above, you and TWG agree that nothing herein will be deemed to waive, preclude or otherwise limit either party’s rights, at any time, to (1) bring an individual action in small claims court provided the claims asserted qualify as a small claim(s) by such a court, (2) pursue enforcement actions through applicable federal, state or local agencies where such actions are available, or (3) to file suit in a court of law to address any alleged violations of the Computer Fraud and Abuse Act or claims of intellectual property infringement or misappropriation. If pursued under this paragraph, any such claims shall be exclusively brought (unless such courts do not have personal jurisdiction over you) in the state or federal courts located in Cook County, Illinois.
- 16.5 Pre-Arbitration Procedures. Before you or TWG commences an arbitration, the party who intends to commence arbitration must first send a written description of the claim or dispute and the relief sought to the other party to allow Us both an opportunity to resolve the matter. We will send notice to the email you used to create your Account. You will send notice to TWG by sending an email to the following email address: firstname.lastname@example.org. You and TWG each agree to negotiate your claim in good faith. Either party may request arbitration if the claim or dispute cannot be resolved within 30 days.
- 16.6 Location and Costs of Arbitration. Unless you and TWG agree otherwise, any arbitration hearing will take place in the county (or parish) of your residence. If your claim is for US $10,000 or less, We agree that you may choose whether the arbitration will be conducted solely on the basis of documents submitted to the arbitrator, through a telephonic hearing, or by an in-person hearing as established by the AAA Rules. If your claim exceeds US $10,000, the right to a hearing will be determined by the AAA Rules. Regardless of the manner in which the arbitration is conducted, the arbitrator shall issue a reasoned written decision explaining the essential findings and conclusions on which the award is based. If the arbitrator issues you an award that is greater than the value of Our last written settlement offer, if any, made before an arbitrator was selected (or if We did not make a settlement offer before an arbitrator was selected), then We will pay you the amount of the award or US $2,500, whichever is greater. Except as expressly set forth herein, the payment of all filing, administration and arbitrator fees will be governed by the AAA Rules.
- 16.7 Class Action Waiver and Jury Waiver. You and We each agree that any proceeding, whether in arbitration or in court, will be conducted only on an individual basis and not in a class, consolidated, joined or representative action. If a court or arbitrator determines in an action between you and TWG that this class action waiver is unenforceable, the arbitration agreement will be void as to you. Neither you, nor any other User, can be a class representative, class member, or otherwise participate in a class, consolidated or representative proceeding. IF FOR ANY REASON A CLAIM PROCEEDS IN COURT RATHER THAT THROUGH ARBITRATION, YOU AND WE EACH WAIVE ANY RIGHT TO A JURY TRIAL.
