OTHERWISE, SUCH CAUSE OF ACTION IS PERMANENTLY BARRED.
A. Defined. The term “dispute” means any dispute, action or other controversy between you and Owner concerning this Agreement, whether in contract, warranty, tort, statute, regulation, ordinance or any other legal or equitable basis. “Dispute” will be given the broadest possible meaning allowable under law.

C. Mediation. The Parties will attempt to resolve any dispute through informal negotiation within sixty (60) calendar days from the date of the Notice of Dispute. After sixty (60) calendar days, the Parties agree to submit the dispute to mediation administered by the American Arbitration Association under its Commercial Mediation Procedures. The Parties shall each pay fifty percent (50%) of the cost of the Mediation. The place of Mediation shall be Normal, Illinois.
D. Binding Arbitration. If the Parties don’t resolve any dispute by informal negotiation or mediation, any other effort to resolve the dispute will be conducted exclusively by binding arbitration as described in this Section. You are giving up the right to litigate (or participate in as a party or class member) all disputes in court before a judge or jury. The dispute shall be settled by binding arbitration in accordance with the commercial arbitration rules of the American Arbitration Association. The arbitration will be conducted in Normal, Illinois, and judgment on the arbitration award may be entered into any court of competent jurisdiction. The award of the arbitrator will be final and binding upon the Parties without appeal or review except as permitted by Illinois law. Either Party may seek any interim or preliminary injunctive relief from any court of competent jurisdiction, as necessary to protect the Party’s rights or property pending the completion of arbitration. Any and all legal, accounting, and other costs, fees, and expenses incurred by the prevailing Party shall be borne by the non-prevailing Party.
E. Prohibition of Class and Representative Actions and Non-Individual Actions. The Parties agree that either may bring claims against the other only on an individual basis and not as part of any purported class or representative action or proceeding unless both Parties agree otherwise. The arbitrator may not consolidate or join more than one person’s or Party’s claims and may not preside over any form of a consolidated, representative or class proceeding. Also, the arbitrator may award relief (including monetary, injunctive and declaratory relief) only in favor of the individual Party seeking relief and only to the extent necessary to provide relief necessitated by that Party’s claim(s). Any relief awarded cannot affect other Owner users.
A. Assignment and Binding Effect. The rights and benefits of Owner under this Agreement shall be transferable, and all covenants and agreements hereunder shall inure to the benefit of, and be enforceable by or against its successors and assigns. This Agreement shall not be assignable by You.
B. Calendar Days and Time. Any reference herein to “day” or “days” shall mean calendar and not business days, unless otherwise expressly granted. If the date for giving of any notice required to be given hereunder or the performance of any obligation hereunder falls on a Saturday, Sunday, or Federal holiday, then said notice or obligation may be given or performed on the next business day after such Saturday, Sunday, or Federal holiday.

To the full extent permitted by law, any circuit court in McLean County, Illinois shall have exclusive jurisdiction over any matter relating to or arising from this Agreement and the parties’ rights and obligations under this Agreement.
E. Non-Disparagement.
