14.Arbitration; Choice of Law.
14.1 Binding Arbitration .

The Parties shall determine the arbiter within a ten-day period of time after the commencement of that task by notice in writing. In the event that the Parties cannot agree to the arbitrator by the end of that period, the arbitrator shall be selected by a neutral party. The final award in any such arbitration proceeding shall be subject to entry as a judgment by any court of competent jurisdiction, provided that such judgment does not conflict with any parts of this Agreement.
14.2 Arbitrator. The jurisdiction of the arbiter with respect to legal matters shall be limited only by the statutory and common law of the State of Nevada and the United States of America and the limitations set forth in this Agreement. The arbitrator shall have no authority to award any punitive or exemplary damages; add any parties; ignore or depart from strict interpretation and adherence to the provisions of this Agreement, and shall be bound by governing and applicable law and substantive and procedural limitations set forth in this Agreement. The arbitrator shall render a written opinion setting forth all material facts and the basis of his or her decision within thirty (30) days of the conclusion of the arbitration proceeding. Except as provided below, the party bringing the action shall be responsible for paying all costs for arbitration, including the arbitrator’s fees unless the matter involves alleged infringement of Company’s intellectual property, in which case the prevailing party shall be awarded its attorneys fees, all arbitration costs and arbitrator fees, in addition to all other applicable remedies.
14.3 Discovery. The parties may conduct discovery, including without limitation, requiring the production of documents, prior to the arbitration hearing.

The Parties expressly agree that all depositions shall be conducted exclusively in Las Vegas, Nevada.

If Company elects to litigate an intellectual property dispute in court and thereby forego the arbitration provisions of this Agreement for such dispute, the parties shall be required to join all other then current claims with the intellectual property claim before the court, and the prevailing party shall be awarded its reasonable attorneys fees and all costs, including expert fees, in addition to all other applicable remedies. The fact that Company elects or does not elect to bring a particular intellectual property dispute in court shall not affect Company’s option to do so or not do so regarding any and all subsequent intellectual property disputes.
14.5 Disputes Regarding Whether Arbitration Is Proper. Notwithstanding the foregoing, You and the Company hereby expressly agree that any and all disputes regarding the scope of jurisdiction of any arbitrator or whether a matter is properly the subject this arbitration provision (for example, a dispute whether the matter arises out of or relates to this Agreement) that are not informally resolved within five (5) business days, shall be resolved, either by a panel of three (3) arbitrators, not including the original arbitrator, or by a state or federal court of competent jurisdiction in Las Vegas, Nevada. You and the Company hereby agree to stipulate to the jurisdiction of such court for the limited purpose of resolving such disputes over the jurisdiction of the arbitrator or scope of matters subject to this arbitration provision.
