The Buyer(s) agree that they will not assert a Claim on behalf of, or as a member of, any group or class.

The findings of the arbitrator shall be final and binding on all parties to this Agreement, and may include an award of costs and legal fees. Such fees and costs will be awarded on any judgment in favor of the Contractor. This agreement to arbitrate, and any award, finding or verdict of or from the arbitration, will be specifically enforceable under the prevailing law of any court having jurisdiction.

Any arbitration proceeding brought under this Agreement, and any award, finding or verdict of or from such proceeding shall remain confidential between the parties and shall not be made public.

The parties believe this will allow a faster and more cost-effective method of addressing a Claim. By entering into this Agreement and this arbitration provision, both parties are giving up their constitutional right to have any dispute decided in a court of law before a jury, and instead are accepting the use of arbitration.
