Arbitration and Jurisdiction
If any controversy, claim or dispute arises between customer and Data Fabrication, Inc. out of, relative to, or in connection with, the right and obligations of the parties under this Letter Agreement or with respect to the Website, the parties agree to first exert a good faith effort to resolve such controversy, claim or dispute. However, if the effort to so resolve such controversy, claim or dispute does not result in a mutually-satisfactory result within fifteen (15) calendar days from the date that the controversy, claim or dispute commenced, then such controversy, claim or dispute shall be settled and resolved by binding arbitration in accordance with the appropriate rules and procedures of the American Arbitration Association, and any judgment or award rendered by the arbitrator or arbitrators may be entered in any court having jurisdiction over the parties and the subject matter of the controversy, claim or dispute.
Demand for arbitration with respect to any said controversy, claim or dispute relating to this Letter Agreement or the Website can be made by either party hereto, but not until the party making the claim shall have given written notice to the other party setting forth the basis for the claim in reasonable detail, and the period of fifteen (15) days, during which the parties must make a good faith effort to attempt to resolve the issues, must have passed. A claim for arbitration is to be filed in writing by one party (or jointly by both parties), with written notice being delivered to the American Arbitration Association.
As stated above, the applicable rules, regulations and procedures of the American Arbitration Association shall govern the said arbitration, including but not limited to the allocation of responsibility for the costs of said arbitration. Subject to any rule or regulation of the American Arbitration Association that may require a different result, the arbitrator(s) shall have the right to assess charges, costs, fees and expenses of the arbitration against the party that does not prevail in the arbitration decision. The arbitrator(s) shall also have the right, if they deem it to be reasonable, to require that the cost of arbitration be shared equally by Data Fabrication, Inc. and customer, except that if either party desires to retain counsel or a consultant for its own presentation, such costs shall be the sole responsibility of the party that incurs such costs for its own benefit.
This Agreement shall be governed by, and construed in accordance with, the laws of the State of Illinois and the courts of the State of Illinois shall have jurisdiction with respect to any litigation, subject to the requirement of arbitration set forth above.
