If Terralite objects to the way Affiliate displays the Affiliate Link or any other content relating to Terralite or services, Affiliate will remedy the issue in the manner requested by Terralite as soon as reasonably practicable.

You and Terralite agree to first resolve any disputes by mutual negotiations prior to entering any binding arbitration. You and Terralite agree to give the other party 160 day notice prior to the filing of any legal claims. You and Terralite agree to resolve any dispute arising under this Agreement by binding arbitration in San Diego, California. This applies to all claims under any legal theory, unless the claim fits in one of the exceptions below. It continues to apply after termination of this Agreement. If the parties have a dispute about whether this agreement to arbitrate can be enforced or applies to such dispute, the parties agree that the arbitrator will decide that, too.
You and Terralite agree that the parties will go to court to resolve disputes relating to the parties intellectual property (e.g., trademarks, trade dress, domain names, trade secrets, copyrights or patents). Also, either party can bring a claim in small claims court either in San Diego, California, or the county where you live, or some other place both parties agree on, if it qualifies to be brought in that court. In addition, if either party brings a claim in court that should be arbitrated or either party refuses to arbitrate a claim that should be arbitrated, the other party can ask a court to force the parties to go to arbitration to resolve the claim (i.e., compel arbitration). Either party may also ask a court to halt a court proceeding while an arbitration proceeding is ongoing.
Prior to filing any arbitration, both parties jointly agree to seek resolution of any dispute between the parties through mediation conducted by the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”), with all mediator fees and expenses paid equally by the parties. If mediation is not successful, either party may initiate an arbitration proceeding with AAA. You can look at AAA’s rules and procedures on their website http://www.adr.org or you can call them at 1-800-778-7879. The arbitration will be governed by the then-current version of AAA’s Commercial Arbitration Rules (the “Rules“) and will be conducted by a single arbitrator appointed in accordance with the Rules. To the extent anything described in this agreement to arbitrate conflicts with the Rules, the language of this agreement to arbitrate applies.
Each party will be entitled to a copy of non-privileged relevant documents in the possession or control of the other party and to take a reasonable number of depositions. All such discovery will be in accordance with procedures approved by the arbitrator. This agreement to arbitrate does not alter in any way the statute of limitations that would apply to any claims or counterclaims asserted by either party.
The arbitrator’s award will be based on the evidence admitted and the substantive law of the State of California and the United States, as applicable, and will contain an award for each issue and counterclaim. The award will provide in writing the factual findings and legal reasoning for such award. The arbitrator will not be entitled to modify this Agreement.
Except as provided in the Federal Arbitration Act, the arbitration award will be final and binding on the parties. Judgment may be entered in any court of competent jurisdiction.
19. Class Action Waiver
WHERE PERMITTED UNDER APPLICABLE LAWS, YOU AND TERRALITE AGREE THAT EACH PARTY MAY BRING CLAIMS AGAINST THE OTHER PARTY ONLY IN ITS INDIVIDUAL CAPACITY AND NOT AS A PLAINTIFF OR CLASS MEMBER IN ANY PURPORTED CLASS OR REPRESENTATIVE ACTION.
