As part of the arbitration, both you and we will have the opportunity for discovery of non-privileged information that is relevant to the Claim. The arbitrator will provide a written statement of the arbitrator’s decision regarding the Claim, the award given and the arbitrator’s findings and conclusions on which the arbitrator’s decision is based. The determination of whether a Claim is subject to arbitration shall be governed by the Federal Arbitration Act and determined by a court rather than an arbitrator. Except as otherwise provided in this ToU, (i) you and WORLD FILM FEDERATION may litigate in court to compel arbitration, stay proceedings pending arbitration, or confirm, modify, vacate or enter judgment on the award entered by the arbitrator; and (ii) the arbitrator’s decision shall be final, binding on all parties and enforceable in any court that has jurisdiction, provided that any award may be challenged if the arbitrator fails to follow applicable law.

The arbitration will take place in your hometown area if you so notify WORLD FILM FEDERATION in your notice of arbitration or within ten (10) days following receipt of WORLD FILM FEDERATIONS’ arbitration notice. In the absence of a notice to conduct the arbitration in your hometown area, the arbitration will be conducted in the County of Dallas, Texas, unless the parties agree to video, phone and/or internet connection appearances.

(ii)Limitations. You and WORLD FILM FEDERATION agree that any arbitration shall be limited to the Claim between WORLD FILM FEDERATION and you individually.

YOU AND WORLD FILM FEDERATION AGREE THAT (A) THERE IS NO RIGHT OR AUTHORITY FOR ANY DISPUTE TO BE ARBITRATED ON A CLASS-ACTION BASIS OR TO UTILIZE CLASS ACTION PROCEDURES; (B) THERE IS NO RIGHT OR AUTHORITY FOR ANY DISPUTE TO BE BROUGHT IN A PURPORTED REPRESENTATIVE CAPACITY OR AS A PRIVATE ATTORNEY GENERAL; AND (C) NO ARBITRATION SHALL BE JOINED WITH ANY OTHER ARBITRATION.

(iv)Arbitration Fees. If you initiate arbitration for a Claim, you will only need to pay an arbitration initiation fee of $250 and we will pay all other costs charged by JAMS for initiating the arbitration. If we are initiating arbitration for a Claim, we will pay all costs charged by JAMS for initiating the arbitration. All other fees and costs of the arbitration will be charged pursuant to the JAMS Rules. Notwithstanding Section 19.5 of this ToU to the contrary, you will not be required to pay our attorneys’ fees or other costs if you do not prevail in the arbitration.

(v)Severability. You and WORLD FILM FEDERATION agree that if any portion this Section 18 is found illegal or unenforceable (except any portion of Section 18.2(d)), that portion shall be severed and the remainder of the Section shall be given full force and effect. If Section 18.2(i) is found to be illegal or unenforceable then neither you nor WORLD FILM FEDERATION will elect to arbitrate any Claim falling within that portion of Section 18.2(i) found to be illegal or unenforceable and such Claim shall be exclusively decided by a court of competent jurisdiction within Dallas, State of Texas, United States of America, and you and WORLD FILM FEDERATION agree to submit to the personal jurisdiction of that court.
