Any dispute, controversy or claim arising out of or relating to this Agreement or to a breach hereof, including without limitation its interpretation, performance or termination, and the determination of the scope or applicability of this agreement to arbitrate, will be finally resolved by arbitration in San Diego, California before one arbitrator. The arbitration will be administered by JAMS pursuant to its Comprehensive Arbitration Rules and Procedures and in accordance with the Expedited Procedures in those Rules, unless the claim is for less than $100,000, in which case the arbitration will be pursuant to JAMS’ Streamlined Arbitration Rules and Procedures. The parties will keep confidential: (i) the fact that any arbitration occurred; (ii) any awards awarded in the arbitration; (iii) all materials used, or created for use in the arbitration; and (iv) all other documents produced in the arbitration and not otherwise in the public domain, except, with respect to each of the foregoing, to the extent that disclosure may be legally required (including to protect or pursue a legal right) or necessary to enforce or challenge an arbitration award before a court or other judicial authority.

The prevailing party will also be entitled to its attorneys’ fees and costs in any action to confirm and/or enforce any arbitration award in any judicial proceedings. Judgment on the award may be entered in any court having jurisdiction. Nothing in the Agreement will prevent either party from seeking provisional relief, and any such request will not be deemed incompatible with the agreement to arbitrate or a waiver of the right to arbitrate. The parties agree that the exclusive jurisdiction for such relief will be the state or federal courts located in San Diego, California.
