Informal Dispute Resolution. You agree that you will not take any legal action, including filing a lawsuit or demanding arbitration, until ten (10) business days after you send this Demand.
Binding Arbitration. If We do not resolve this disagreement to your satisfaction within ten (10) business days, and you intend on taking legal action, you agree that you will file a demand for arbitration with the American Arbitration Association (the “Arbitrator”). Review this section carefully. This arbitration provision limits your and BI’s ability to litigate claims in court and you and BI each agree to waive your respective rights to a jury trial or a state or federal judge. You agree that you will not file any lawsuit against Us in any state or federal court. You agree that if you do sue us in state or federal court, and we bring a successful motion to compel arbitration, you must pay all fees and costs incurred by us in court, including reasonable attorney’s fees.
Please note that for any such filing of a demand for arbitration, you must affect proper service under the rules of the Arbitrator, and that notice to the Notice Address may not suffice. If, for any reason, the AAA is unable to provide the arbitration, you may file your case with any national arbitration company. The Arbitrator shall apply the AAA Consumer-Related Disputes Supplementary Procedure as effective September 15, 2005. You agree that the Arbitrator will have sole and exclusive jurisdiction over any dispute you have with us. You understand that the Federal Arbitration Act allows for the enforcement of arbitration agreements, and you agree that it applies.

Inclusion of any third party link does not imply a recommendation or endorsement by Us. We are not responsible for and will not have any liability for any damages or injuries of any kind arising in connection with the content of linked third party sites, sites framed within Our Web sites or Apps, or third-party advertisements. We do not make any representations regarding the content or accuracy of third-party sites.
