Any in-person Arbitration will be held at a site selected by HGU in Denver, Colorado, U.S.A. The award of the arbitrator in any Arbitration will be the exclusive remedy of the parties for all claims, counterclaims, issues or accountings presented or plead to the arbitrator. The award of the arbitrator will require payment of the costs, fees, and expenses incurred by the prevailing party in the Arbitration by the non-prevailing party (including the filing and administrative costs of the Arbitration). Judgment upon an Arbitration award may be entered in any court or governmental body having jurisdiction. Any additional costs, fees or expenses incurred in enforcing an Arbitration award may be charged against the party that resists its enforcement.BOTH PARTIES AGREE THAT EACH OF US ONLY MAY BRING CLAIMS AGAINST THE OTHER ON AN INDIVIDUAL BASIS AND NOT AS A PLAINTIFF OR CLASS MEMBER IN ANY PURPORTED CLASS, OR REPRESENTATIVE OR PRIVATE ATTORNEY GENERAL ACTION OR PROCEEDING.UNLESS BOTH PARTIES AGREE, THE ARBITRATOR MAY NOT CONSOLIDATE OR JOIN MORE THAN ONE PERSON'S OR PARTY'S CLAIMS IN AN ARBITRATION, AND MAY NOT OTHERWISE PRESIDE OVER ANY FORM OF A CONSOLIDATED, REPRESENTATIVE, CLASS, OR PRIVATE ATTORNEY GENERAL ACTION OR PROCEEDING.THE ARBITRATOR MAY AWARD RELIEF (INCLUDING MONETARY, INJUNCTIVE, AND DECLARATORY RELIEF) ONLY IN FAVOR OF THE INDIVIDUAL PARTY SEEKING RELIEF AND ONLY TO THE EXTENT NECESSARY TO PROVIDE RELIEF NECESSITATED BY THAT PARTY'S INDIVIDUAL CLAIM(S).

This Agreement is in the English language only, which language will be controlling in all respects.
