Arbitration must commence within 6 months following obtaining knowledge of the cause of action forming the basis of the Dispute. Failure to commence arbitration within the 6-month period constitutes a waiver of your rights to any further proceeding. (b) In any arbitration and subject to the ultimate discretion of the presiding arbitrator, each side will be limited to a maximum of one day of argument (including rebuttal), and the parties agree in good faith to minimize discovery burdens (eg. confine the scope to actual areas in dispute and limit the topics and number of pages on which information is requested to matters directly relevant). (c) Any decision of the arbitrator shall be final and binding and may not be appealed to any court of competent jurisdiction, or otherwise, except upon claim of fraud or corruption, provided however, that implementation of such decision shall in no way be delayed or otherwise impaired pending the outcome of any such appeal. Any court having jurisdiction thereof may enter judgment upon the award rendered in such arbitration. (d) Notwithstanding the foregoing, you agree that the following matters shall not be subject to binding arbitration, at our sole election: (1) any Dispute arising out of or related to allegations of criminal activity; (2) any Disputes concerning our intellectual property rights; and (3) any claim for injunctive relief.
13.5. Litigation. A court of competent jurisdiction located within Nashville, Tennessee shall decide any IP Protection Action or any other Dispute which is not subject to arbitration. Each party hereby waives any claim that such venue is improper or inconvenient.
13.6. No Joint Disputes or Class Actions. You agree that any claim, controversy, or alleged dispute between you and us, our members, or our affiliates (“Dispute”), will be limited between you, individually, and us. To the fullest extent allowable by law, you agree that no dispute resolution proceeding of any kind, whether mediation, arbitration, or litigation shall be joined with any other party or decided on a class action basis.
