By using this Site, you agree that: (1) any claim, dispute, or controversy you may have against us, Brooke Wilson or the Site  arising out of, relating to, or connected in any way with this Agreement shall be resolved exclusively by final and binding arbitration administered by the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”) and conducted before a single arbitrator pursuant to the applicable Rules and Procedures established by AAA (“Rules and Procedures”); (2) the claim or dispute must be brought within one (1) year of the first date of the event giving rise to such action and the arbitration shall be held in at such other location as may be mutually agreed upon by you and Brooke Wilson; (3) the arbitrator shall apply Pennsylvania law consistent with the Federal Arbitration Act and applicable statutes of limitations, and shall honor claims of privilege recognized at law; (4) there shall be no authority for any claims to be arbitrated on a class or representative basis; arbitration can decide only your and/or Brooke Wilson’s individual claims; and the arbitrator may not consolidate or join the claims of other persons or parties who may be similarly situated; (5) both parties will bear their own costs of representation and filing for the dispute; (6) where possible and allowed for under the AAA Rules and Procedures STW shall be entitled to appear electronically or telephonically for all proceedings;  and (7) with the exception of subpart (4) above, if any part of this arbitration provision is deemed to be invalid, unenforceable or illegal, or otherwise conflicts with the Rules and Procedures established by AAA, then the balance of this arbitration provision shall remain in effect and shall be construed in accordance with its terms as if the invalid, unenforceable, illegal or conflicting provision were not contained herein. If, however, subpart (4) is found to be invalid, unenforceable or illegal, then the entirety of this Arbitration Provision shall be null and void, and neither you nor Brooke Wilson shall be entitled to arbitrate their dispute.
