11. NO ASSIGNMENT
This Agreement and the rights granted and obligations undertaken under it may not be transferred, assigned or delegated in any manner by User.
12. MEDIATION AND ARBITRATION
The User agrees that, in the event of any dispute concerning any civil matter between the parties, including, but not limited to any action in tort, contract, or the application, interpretation or enforcement of any agreement, including this one, each party agrees to first attempt in good faith to resolve such dispute through mediation by a neutral mediator. If such mediation fails to resolve the disputed matter, the parties agree that the dispute shall be submitted to final and binding arbitration in lieu of proceeding before a state or federal agency or court of law. The User agrees to give up the User’s right to a trial by judge a jury. Unless waived by both parties, mandatory mediation must be engaged in before either may file for binding arbitration.
Arbitration, should it be necessary, will take place in the County of Denver, State of Colorado, and shall be conducted by an arbitrator (or three arbitrators if the parties mutually agree or if required by the American Arbitration Association) from a panel of arbitrators selected from the American Arbitration Association. The arbitration will be conducted under the rules of the American Arbitration Association’s (“the Rules”) governing such disputes, which are then in effect. The parties further agree that the arbitration shall be expedited and take place on three consecutive days. To the extent permitted under the Rules, discovery shall be allowed.
The User agrees that neither party shall themselves, nor cause or assist another, to publicly disclose any information relating to the disputed matter or in any way release information that may be disparaging to either party, before, during or after the resolution of the dispute. This nondisclosure agreement is of primary importance to each of the parties.
The parties further agree that, notwithstanding any Rules to the contrary, the arbitrator shall have the discretion and authority to award the prevailing party the costs and expenses incurred in connection with the arbitration, including reasonable attorneys’ fees. This provision for alternative dispute resolution (ADR) shall not be construed to limit the parties right to seek injunctive relief from a court of competent jurisdiction in the event of possible irreparable harm or to prevent the parties from enforcing federal copyright or trademarks in federal court.
13. CHOICE OF LAW
The User agrees that that the laws of the State of Colorado shall be the governing law, regardless of the site of arbitration or the issue of conflict of law, and each party shall have the right to submit an expert’s opinion on the issue of such laws. The decision of the arbitrator shall be confirmed by any court of competent jurisdiction.
