Dispute Resolution and Arbitration
If You have any concerns or disputes about the Service, You agree to first try to resolve the dispute informally by contacting the Company.

The arbitration will be conducted by a single, neutral arbitrator and will take place in Cobb County, Georgia, in the English language. All issues are for the arbitrator to decide, including (but not limited to) issues relating to the scope and enforceability of this agreement to arbitrate and the arbitrability of any dispute between you and the Company. The arbitrator may award any relief that a court of competent jurisdiction could award, including attorneys’ fees when authorized by law. Judgment on the award rendered by the arbitrator may be entered in any court having jurisdiction thereof. At your request, hearings may be conducted in person or by telephone, and the arbitrator may provide for submitting and determining motions on briefs, with or without oral hearings.
For the benefit of the parties, all aspects of the arbitration proceeding, including (but not limited to) the transcripts of the hearing, the transcript of any deposition, and all documents produced or used during the arbitration proceeding, will be strictly confidential.
The Federal Arbitration Act governs the interpretation and enforcement of this agreement to arbitrate. If a court decides that any provision of this section is invalid or unenforceable, that provision will be severed and the other parts of this paragraph (and the remainder of these terms) will continue to apply, but in no case shall either you or the Company be permitted to participate in a class-action lawsuit or class-wide arbitration.
This arbitration provision is optional. You may decline or opt-out of this agreement to arbitrate by sending written and signed notice to email@example.com within 30 days of your first access to this Website or your formal expression of interest in participating in our study (evidenced by completing the contact form found on this Website), whichever is earliest.
