informally for at least thirty (30) days before initiating arbitration. Such informal negotiations commence upon written

AAA Consumer Rules. The arbitration may be conducted in person, through the submission of documents, by phone, or
online. The arbitrator will make a decision in writing, but need not provide a statement of reasons unless requested by
either Party. The arbitrator must follow applicable law, and any award may be challenged if the arbitrator fails to do so.
Except where otherwise required by the applicable AAA rules or applicable law, the arbitration will take place in United

proceedings pending arbitration, or to confirm, modify, vacate, or enter judgment on the award entered by the arbitrator.

permitted by law, (a) no arbitration shall be joined with any other proceeding; (b) there is no right or authority for any
Dispute to be arbitrated on a class-action basis or to utilize class action procedures; and (c) there is no right or authority
