Arbitration shall be held in Cincinnati, Ohio, and you agree to, and waive any defense or objection to, this location.
All parties have the right, at their own expense, to be represented by an attorney or spokesperson of their own choosing. Each side shall bear their own fees, costs, and expenses, including one half of all arbitration fees. However, we will pay all of the Arbitrator’s fees if the Arbitrator makes a specific finding, upon a sworn affidavit by you with actual proof, that you are without the financial means to pay your share of the arbitration fees. The arbitration shall be completed within one hundred twenty (120) days of agreement to or appointment of the Arbitrator. The Arbitrator may grant a reasonable continuance upon good cause shown. The Award shall be reasoned and should be rendered within thirty (30) days of closure of the arbitration proceedings. Discovery shall be expeditiously completed within three (3) months of agreement to or appointment of the Arbitrator. Each party shall produce relevant non-privileged documents requested by the other party. Discovery procedures available in court actions do not apply. The Arbitrator should grant depositions and/or other written discovery upon a showing of need. All discovery disputes shall be promptly submitted to and promptly resolved by the Arbitrator.
7. Notice of Dispute
If you have any claim or cause of action, or you believe there is a Dispute between us, we encourage you to submit it to us promptly so we have the opportunity to address it and correct it with you. Any Dispute you have shall be filed within one (1) year from the earlier of the date the Dispute arose or occurred or the date when you should have learned of the facts giving rise to the Dispute, even if you did not appreciate or know the full extent of any damages. You expressly waive any different statute of limitation or time bar, both legal and equitable. Either you or we may submit a Dispute to arbitration by providing written notice to the other, with such notice containing the following: (a) your or our correct legal name and physical address, (b) the nature of the Dispute and the facts giving rise to the Dispute, (c) the damages and remedy sought, and (d) pertinent documentation regarding the Dispute. Thereafter, we and you will attempt in good faith to resolve the matter, and if not submit the matter to Arbitration for binding resolution.
8. Waiver of Class Action
We and You both agree that neither of us shall have the right to participate as a class representative or class member with respect to any disputes between us (including a “Dispute” as defined herein), and also waive any right to assert consolidated claims with respect to any Disputes subject to arbitration under this Agreement or any dispute between the parties
