  1. The Parties shall use their best efforts to resolve and settle by direct, private negotiation of any disputes, controversies or claims between them, their affiliates, owners, shareholders, members, officers, directors, managers, employees and agents arising out of, relating to or pertaining to this Agreement, the provisions of this Agreement, any breach of this Agreement or the provisions therein, enforcement of this Agreement or the provisions therein, or the relationship of the Parties created by this Agreement (hereinafter “Dispute”).  Both Parties may seek the advice and assistance of legal counsel in connection with any such negotiation.

 

  1. If the Parties cannot resolve and settle a Dispute by private negotiations as referred to in subsection (1) above within sixty (60) days after one party gives the other written notice that a Dispute exists, the Parties mutually agree to submit the Dispute to arbitration administered by the American Arbitration Association in Salt Lake City, Utah in the United States under its Commercial Arbitration Rules on demand of either or both Parties.  The Dispute shall be referred to a single arbitrator, if the Parties agree upon one, or otherwise to three (3) arbitrators, one to be appointed by each party and a third arbitrator to be appointed by the first named arbitrators for each.  The award or determination of the matter shall be made by the arbitrator(s) and shall be conclusive, final and binding upon the Parties.  Each party waives any right to contest the validity or enforceability of such award.  The Parties agree to be bound by the provisions of any limitation on the period of time by which claims must be brought.  The Parties agree that, in connection with any such arbitration proceeding, each will submit or file any claims which would constitute a compulsory counterclaim (as defined by Rule 13 of the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure, as amended or any successor provisions thereto) within the same proceedings as the claim to which it relates.  The arbitrator or arbitrators shall apply Utah law and applicable federal law without regard to Utah conflicts of law provisions and shall make their award in accordance with and based upon the provisions of this Agreement and applicable law.  The Parties further agree that arbitration shall be conducted on an individual, and not a class-wide, basis.  The arbitrator shall have the right to award or include in the award any relief which the arbitrator deems appropriate pursuant to this Agreement and applicable law in the circumstances, including, without limitation, money damages, specific performance, injunctive relief, and attorneys’ fees and costs, except that the arbitrator shall not award punitive or exemplary damages.  The Parties understand that they are waiving their right to a jury trial with respect to the arbitration.  Judgment on the award rendered by the arbitrator(s) shall be in writing and may be entered in any court having jurisdiction thereof.

 

  1. In the event of a Dispute relating to Sections 2.1 (relating to the license or use of the System or Services or use of the Documentation), 8.2 or 8.3 (relating to confidentiality), or 7.1, 7.2 or 7.3 (relating to Intellectual Property and confidentiality rights) of this Agreement, the provisions of subsections (1) and (2) above shall have no application to Company and Company may pursue actions in court or elsewhere as permitted by law, subject to the jurisdiction, venue, governing law, remedy and other provisions of this Agreement relating to the same.
