7. DISPUTE RESOLUTION
7.1 Informal Process First. You agree that in the event of any dispute between you and Company, you will first contact us and make a good faith sustained effort to resolve the dispute before resorting to arbitration under this Agreement.
7.2 Binding Arbitration. Any dispute or claim that remains unresolved after the informal dispute resolution described in Section 2.1, except for disputes relating to the infringement of our intellectual property rights or the access or use of the Website in violation of this Agreement (a "Claim"), will be resolved by binding arbitration, rather than in court, provided that you may assert Claims in small claims court located in Suffolk County, Massachusetts if your Claims qualify.
7.3 No Judge or Jury. There is no judge or jury in arbitration, and court review of an arbitration award is limited. However, an arbitrator can award on an individual basis the same damages and relief as a court (including injunctive and declaratory relief or statutory damages), and must follow the terms of this Agreement as a court would.
7.4 Arbitrator and Rules. The arbitration will be conducted before a neutral single arbitrator, whose decision will be final and binding, and the arbitral proceedings will be governed by the AAA Commercial Arbitration Rules, Consumer Due Process Protocol, and Supplementary Procedures for Resolution of Consumer¬ Related Disputes. These rules can be found on the AAA website at www.adr.org.
7.5 Starting an Arbitration. To begin an arbitration proceeding, you must send us a notice of dispute, in writing, setting forth your name, address and contact information, the facts of the dispute and relief requested. You must send your notice of legal dispute to us at the following address: firstname.lastname@example.org. We will send any notice of dispute to you at the contact information we have for you.
7.6 Format of Proceedings. The arbitration will be conducted, at the option of the party seeking relief, by telephone, online, or based solely on written submissions.
7.7 Fees. If you initiate arbitration, your arbitration fees will be limited to the filing fee set forth in the AAA's Consumer Arbitration Rules. Unless the arbitrator finds the arbitration was frivolous or brought for an improper purpose, the Company will pay all other AAA and arbitrator's fees and expenses.
7.8 Individual Basis; Jury Trial Waiver. To the fullest extent permitted by applicable law, you and Company each agree that any proceeding to resolve a Claim will be conducted only in the respective party's individual capacity and not as a plaintiff or class member in any purported class, consolidated, multiple plaintiff or representative action ("Class Action"). If for any reason a Claim proceeds in court rather than in arbitration, you and Company each waive any right to a jury trial. You and Company expressly waive any ability to maintain any Class Action in any forum. If the Claim is subject to arbitration, the arbitrator will not have authority to combine or aggregate similar claims or conduct any Class Action nor make an award to any person or entity not a party to the arbitration. Any claim that all or part of this Class Action Waiver is unenforceable, unconscionable, void, or voidable may be determined only by a court of competent jurisdiction and not by an arbitrator.
7.9 Limitation Period. In no event will any Claim or any other action or proceeding by you (including arbitration under this Section 2) be instituted more than one (1) year after the cause of action arose.
7.10 Enforcement. Any judgment on the award rendered by the arbitrator may be entered in any court of competent jurisdiction. The United Nations Conventions on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods will have no applicability.
7.11 Invalidity. If a court of competent jurisdiction finds the foregoing arbitration provisions invalid or inapplicable, you and Company each agree to the exclusive jurisdiction of the Federal and State courts located in [Boston, Massachusetts], and you and Company each agree to submit to the exercise of personal jurisdiction of such courts for the purposes of litigating any applicable dispute or claim.
7.12 Opting Out. If you do not want to arbitrate disputes with Company and you are an individual, you may opt out of this arbitration agreement by sending an email to email@example.com within thirty (30) days of the first of the date you access or use the Service.
8.1 Assignability. You may not assign this Agreement or any of your rights or obligations hereunder without our prior written consent. Company may freely assign this Agreement. Any attempted assignment or transfer in violation of this Section 3.1 will be null and void. Subject to the foregoing restrictions, this Agreement will inure to the benefit of the successors and permitted assigns of the parties.
8.2 Entire Agreement. This Agreement set forth the entire agreement and understanding of the parties relating to its subject matter and cancels and supersedes any prior or contemporaneous discussions, agreements, representations, warranties, and other communications between them.
8.3 Governing Law. This Agreement and any controversy, dispute or claim arising out of or relating to this Agreement will be governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts, without regard to its conflict of law provisions.

8.6 No Waiver. The failure or delay of Company to exercise or enforce any right or claim does not constitute a waiver of such right or claim and will in no way affect Company's right to later enforce or exercise it, unless Company issues an express written waiver, signed by a duly authorized representative of each party.
8.7 Severability. If and to the extent any provision of this Agreement is held illegal, invalid, or unenforceable in whole or in part under applicable law by a court of competent jurisdiction, such provision or such portion thereof will be ineffective as to the jurisdiction in which it is illegal, invalid, or unenforceable to the extent of its illegality, invalidity, or unenforceability, and will be deemed modified to the extent necessary to conform to applicable law so as to give the maximum effect to the intent of the parties.
