10. Dispute Resolution
Except for the right of a party to apply to a court for a temporary restraining order, preliminary injunction or other equitable relief, any controversy or claim arising out of or relating to this Agreement that cannot be resolved through negotiation will be resolved by binding arbitration before a single arbitrator in accordance with the Commercial Arbitration Rules of the American Arbitration Association.

All arbitration proceedings will occur in English and will be held in Seattle, Washington, USA. The parties agree that any dispute resolution proceeding will be conducted on an individual basis and not as a class or representation action. Neither you nor Tignis shall be a member of a class, consolidated or representative action or proceeding. The award of the arbitrator shall be binding and may be entered as a judgment in any court of competent jurisdiction. The cost of the arbitration shall be borne equally by the parties. Neither party nor the arbitrator may disclose the existence or results of any arbitration hereunder. The authority of the arbitrator to award damages in any event is and shall be limited by this Agreement.

These Site Terms and your use of the Site shall be governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of the United States of America and the State of Washington applicable to agreements made and to be entirely performed within the State of Washington (even if your use is outside of the State of Washington), without resort to its conflict of law provisions. You agree that with respect to any disputes or claims not subject to arbitration (as set forth above), any action at law or in equity arising out of or relating to the Site or these Site Terms or Service Terms shall be filed only in the state and federal courts located in King County, Washington and you hereby irrevocably and unconditionally consent and submit to the exclusive jurisdiction and venue of such courts.
If any of these Site Terms or the Service Terms should be determined to be invalid, illegal or unenforceable for any reason by any court of competent jurisdiction then such term shall be enforced only to the extent it is enforceable and the remaining terms shall survive and remain in full force and effect and continue to be binding and enforceable.
