All Disputes (including any dispute relating to the arbitrability of this Agreement or any provision of this Agreement or any other dispute relating to arbitration) must be submitted to arbitration before and in accordance with the arbitration rules of the American Arbitration Association in accordance with its commercial arbitration rules. The term “Dispute” means any controversy or claim arising out of or relating to the Site or the Services or this Agreement, or any breach thereof, including any claim that this Agreement, or any part of this Agreement is invalid, illegal or otherwise voidable or void.
The provisions of this Arbitration Section must be construed as independent of any other covenant or provision of this Agreement; provided that if a court of competent jurisdiction or arbitrator determines that any such provisions are unlawful in any way, such court or arbitrator is to modify or interpret such provisions to the minimum extent necessary to have them comply with the law. Notwithstanding any provision of this Agreement relating to under which state’s laws this Agreement is to be governed by and construed under, all issues relating to arbitrability or the enforcement of the Agreement to arbitrate contained herein are to be governed by the Federal Arbitration Act (9 U.S.C. § 1 et seq.) and the federal common law of arbitration.
Judgment upon an arbitration award may be entered in any court having competent jurisdiction and will be binding, final and non-appealable.

In the event either party fails to appear at any properly noticed arbitration proceeding, an award may be entered against such party by default or otherwise notwithstanding said failure to appear.
Arbitration take place in Seattle, WA. You and Virah hereby agree that no action (whether for arbitration, damages, injunctive, equitable or other relief, including rescission) will be maintained by any party to enforce any liability or obligation of the other party, whether arising from this Agreement or otherwise, or any other Dispute, unless brought before the expiration of the earlier of one year from the occurrence of the facts giving rise to such claims or within 90 days from either the actual discovery of the facts giving rise to such claims or from the date on which the party should have, in the exercise of reasonable diligence, discovered such facts, except that an action to enforce your payment obligations may be brought by Virah at any time.
The obligation to arbitrate is not binding upon Virah with respect to claims relating to its trademarks, service marks, patents, copyrights, or other intellectual property rights, or requests for temporary restraining orders, preliminary injunctions or other procedures in a court of competent jurisdiction to obtain interim relief when deemed necessary by such court to preserve the status quo or prevent irreparable injury pending resolution by arbitration of the actual dispute between the parties.
The prevailing party will be entitled to receive from the non-prevailing party its costs relating to the arbitration proceeding including but not limited to, the arbitrator’s fees, attorneys’ fees and costs, witness fees, transcription fees, etc. and sales and use taxes thereon, if any.
You and Virah each acknowledge and agree that it is the intent of the parties that arbitration and litigation between the parties will be of the parties’ individual claims, and that none of their respective claims may be arbitrated or litigated on a class-wide basis.
The rights and liabilities of the parties hereto will bind and inure to the benefit of their respective assignees, successors, executors, and administrators, as the case may be. Neither these Terms and Conditions nor any rights granted hereunder may be sold, leased, assigned, or otherwise transferred, in whole or in part, by you.
If for any reason a court of competent jurisdiction or an arbitrator finds any provision of these Terms and Conditions, or any portion thereof, to be unenforceable, that provision will be enforced to the maximum extent permissible and the remainder of these Terms and Conditions will continue in full force and effect.
F. Attorney’s Fees
In the event of any arbitration or litigation arising out of this agreement, the prevailing party shall be entitled to attorney’s fees, including attorney’s fees incurred on appeal.
