13. Dispute Resolution

Any controversy or claim between the parties or arising out of these Terms of Use or any use of the Site shall be determined by one disinterested arbitrator in binding arbitration pursuant to the Commercial Arbitration Rules and the Supplementary Procedures for Online Arbitration of the American Arbitration Association (the “AAA”).

If the parties fail to appoint an arbitrator within forty-five (45) days of the institution of the arbitration, the AAA shall select the arbitrator promptly thereafter. Any requests for accelerated, emergency or preliminary relief shall be submitted pursuant to the AAA’s Optional Rules for Emergency Measures of Protection. If any such requests are made before an arbitration panel is empaneled, then the AAA shall appoint one disinterested arbitrator as an arbitration panel to immediately hear and decide such request. The arbitration panel shall have the right to grant interim awards. Testimony shall be permitted by telephone, video conference and other forms of real-time telecommunications. If the arbitrator requires in-person hearings, the hearings shall be held in New York, New York.
