The place of arbitration shall be King County, Washington. You waive any right to a trial by jury.
If your claim does not exceed $10,000, then the arbitration will be conducted solely on the basis of documents you and Company submit to the arbitrator, unless you request a hearing and the arbitrator determines that a hearing is necessary. If your claim exceeds $10,000, the arbitration shall be conducted by three arbitrators. The claimant(s) shall appoint an arbitrator in the notice of arbitration. The respondent(s) shall appoint an arbitrator within 15 days of the receipt of the notice of arbitration.

Each party has the right to apply to any court of competent jurisdiction for provisional measures, including pre-arbitral attachments or injunctions, provided however that, after the arbitrators are appointed, the arbitrators shall have sole jurisdiction to consider applications for provisional measures, and any provisional measures ordered by the arbitrators may be specifically enforced by any court of competent jurisdiction. The parties agree to the jurisdiction of Washington state courts for these purposes.
Unless the parties expressly agree in writing to the contrary, the arbitration shall be kept confidential and the existence of the proceedings and all materials related to the proceedings (including but not limited to pleadings, briefs, documents submitted or exchanged, testimony or oral submissions and transcripts thereof, and awards) shall not be disclosed without the prior consent of the other party, beyond disclosure to the tribunal, the AAA, the parties, their counsel, accountants and auditors, insurers and re-insurers, and any person necessary to the conduct of the proceedings.

In order to facilitate the comprehensive resolution of related disputes, and upon request of any party to the arbitration proceedings, the arbitration tribunal may consolidate the arbitration proceedings initiated under this Agreement with any other arbitration proceeding involving any of the parties hereto relating to this Agreement or any related agreement contemplated hereby. The arbitration tribunal shall consolidate such arbitrations unless it determines that (i) there are no issues of fact or law common to the two proceedings so that a consolidated proceeding would be more efficient than separate proceedings or (ii) a party would be prejudiced as a result of such consolidation through undue delay or otherwise.
The Arbitration award shall be final and binding on the parties. Judgment upon the award may be entered by any court having jurisdiction thereof or having jurisdiction over the relevant party or its assets.
