Arbitration and Governing Law
Arbitration Agreement. The exclusive means of resolving any dispute or claim arising out of or relating to this Agreement (including any alleged breach thereof), the Service, or the Website shall be BINDING ARBITRATION administered by the American Arbitration Association. The one exception to the exclusivity of arbitration is that you have the right to bring an individual claim against Par5 in a small-claims court of competent jurisdiction. But whether you choose arbitration or small-claims court, you may not under any circumstances commence or maintain against Par5 any class action, class arbitration, or other representative action or proceeding.
Notice of Rights
By using the Website or the Service in any manner, you agree to the above arbitration agreement. In doing so, YOU GIVE UP YOUR RIGHT TO GO TO COURT to assert or defend any claims between you and Par5 (except for matters that may be taken to small-claims court). YOU ALSO GIVE UP YOUR RIGHT TO PARTICIPATE IN A CLASS ACTION OR OTHER CLASS PROCEEDING. Your rights will be determined by a NEUTRAL ARBITRATOR, NOT A JUDGE OR JURY. You are entitled to a fair hearing before the arbitrator. The arbitrator can grant any relief that a court can, but you should note that arbitration proceedings are usually simpler and more streamlined than trials and other judicial proceedings. Decisions by the arbitrator are enforceable in court and may be overturned by a court only for very limited reasons. For details on the arbitration process, see our Arbitration Policy.
Any proceeding to enforce this arbitration agreement, including any proceeding to confirm, modify, or vacate an arbitration award, may be commenced in any court of competent jurisdiction. In the event that this arbitration agreement is for any reason held to be unenforceable, any litigation against Par5 (except for small-claims court actions) may be commenced only in the federal or state courts located in Georgia. You hereby irrevocably consent to the jurisdiction of those courts for such purposes.
Governing Law. This Agreement, and any dispute between you and Par5, shall be governed by the laws of the state of Georgia without regard to principles of conflicts of law, provided that this arbitration agreement shall be governed by the Federal Arbitration Act.
Indemnity by You.
You agree to indemnify and hold Par5, its subsidiaries, affiliates, officers, agents, and other partners and employees, harmless from any loss, liability, claim, or demand, including reasonable attorney’s fees, made by any third party due to or arising out of your use of the Service in violation of this Agreement and/or arising from a breach of this Agreement and/or any breach of your representations and warranties set forth above.
No Third Party Beneficiaries.
You agree that, except as otherwise expressly provided in this Agreement, there shall be no third party beneficiaries to this Agreement.

If any provision of this Agreement is held invalid, the remainder of this Agreement shall continue in full force and effect. This Agreement is subject to change by Par5 at any time.

How to contact us
Administrator. The administrator for the arbitration is the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”), a non-profit organization that is not affiliated with www.par5matchmaking.com. The AAA facilitates, but does not itself conduct, the arbitration. The arbitrator who will hear and decide your dispute will be chosen from the AAA’s roster of neutral arbitrators. For information on the AAA, please visit its website, http://www.adr.org. Information about the AAA’s rules and fees for consumer disputes can be found at the AAA’s consumer arbitration page,http://www.adr.org/consumer_arbitration.
Applicable Rules. The arbitration will be governed by the AAA’s Commercial Arbitration Rules and its Consumer-Related Disputes Supplementary Procedures (together, the “AAA Rules”), as modified by these Arbitration Procedures. If there is any inconsistency between the AAA Rules and these Arbitration Procedures, the Arbitration Procedures will control. However, if the arbitrator determines that strict application of the Arbitration Procedures would not result in a fundamentally fair arbitration, the arbitrator may make any order necessary to provide a fundamentally fair arbitration that is consistent with the AAA Rules.
Commencing an Arbitration. The parties agree to have any disputes that cannot otherwise be resolved internally submitted to binding arbitration before a single arbitrator agreed to by the parties, with all arbitration fees and costs (excluding attorneys’ fees) to be shared equally between the parties, except as noted below.
(i) In the event that a party to this Agreement seeks to initiate a dispute and arbitration hereunder, such complaining party shall be obligated, prior to commencing arbitration, to provide written notice of said dispute to the other party, along with a monetary demand, in an effort to resolve the dispute informally. If the dispute is not resolved to the complaining party’s satisfaction within thirty (30) days of the time written notice is provided to the other party, the complaining party may then proceed with arbitration.
(ii) If the complaining party receives a settlement offer during the period prior to the time arbitration is commenced, and the complaining party is later awarded damages through arbitration less than the amount offered for settlement prior to arbitration, then the complaining party shall be responsible for all costs of arbitration, including the attorney’s fees incurred by the other party. In all other circumstances, each party shall bear its own attorney’s fees.
(iii) In the event the parties are unable to agree upon an arbitrator after making good faith efforts for a thirty (30) day period to do so, then the matter shall be arbitrated through the Atlanta Bar Association or a comparable bar association.
(iv) Any arbitration under this Agreement shall take place in the City of Atlanta, Georgia.
