Dispute Resolution and Governing Law

This Section provides for resolution of Disputes through final and binding arbitration before a neutral arbitrator instead of in a court by a judge or jury or through a class action. You may continue to have certain rights to obtain relief in small claims court or from a federal or state regulatory agency.

Binding Arbitration

You and we agree to resolve all disputes through individual binding arbitration or in small claims court, instead of courts of general jurisdiction. The arbitration will be conducted by one arbitrator using the procedures described by this Section. The arbitration will take place in Salt Lake City, Utah, or if you elect, in your County of residence.

The arbitration shall be administered by JAMS pursuant to the Comprehensive Arbitration Rules and Procedures and in accordance with the Expedited Procedures in those rules. If no disputed claim or counterclaim exceeds $250,000, not including interest or

attorneys’ fees, the arbitration shall be administered under the JAMS Streamlined Arbitration Rules and Procedures as modified by this Agreement. Judgment on the Award may be entered in any court having jurisdiction. Notwithstanding any JAMS rule to the contrary or any other provision in arbitration rules chosen by agreement, we each agree that all issues regarding the Dispute are delegated to the arbitrator to decide, including any disagreements regarding the scope and enforceability of this agreement to arbitrate. In conducting the arbitration and making any award, the arbitrator shall be bound by and strictly enforce the terms of this Agreement and may not limit, expand, or otherwise modify its terms.

You and Sorenson agree that each may bring claims against the other only in your or its individual capacity, and not as a plaintiff or class member in any purported class or representative proceeding. Further, unless both you and Sorenson agree otherwise, the arbitrator may not consolidate more than one person’s claims and may not otherwise preside over any 13 form of a representative or class proceeding. The arbitrator may award declaratory or injunctive relief only in favor of the individual party seeking relief and only to the extent necessary to provide relief warranted by that party’s individual claim. If any portion of this paragraph is found to be unenforceable, then the entirety of this Section 9 shall be null and void. The arbitration process established by this Section 9 is governed by the Federal Arbitration Act (“FAA”), 9 U.S.C. §§ 1-16. You and Sorenson each agree that the FAA’s provisions—and not state law—govern all questions of whether a Dispute is subject to arbitration. To the extent this Agreement conflicts with the JAMS Policy on Consumer Arbitrations Pursuant to Pre-Dispute Clauses Minimum Standards of Procedural Fairness (the “Minimum Standards”), the Minimum Standards in that regard will apply. However, nothing in this paragraph will require or allow you or Sorenson to arbitrate on a class-wide, representative, or consolidated basis.

Arbitration and Filing Procedures

Before you take a dispute to arbitration, you must first write to us at Sorenson Communications, LLC, c/o Legal Dept., 4192 South Riverboat Road, Suite 100, Salt Lake City, Utah 84123, U.S.A., and give us an opportunity to resolve the dispute. Similarly, before Sorenson takes a dispute to arbitration, Sorenson will first attempt to resolve it by contacting you. If the dispute cannot be satisfactorily resolved within sixty days from the date you or Sorenson is notified by the other of a dispute, then either party may commence an arbitration before JAMS. Information about the JAMS, the arbitration process, JAMS’s arbitration rules and

procedures, and JAMS’s fees is available from JAMS on the Internet at www.jamsadr.com. Any claim or Dispute subject to arbitration under this Agreement must be brought within two (2) years after the date the basis for the claim or dispute first arises. Unless applicable substantive law provides otherwise, each party will pay its own expenses to participate in the arbitration, including attorneys’ fees, and expenses for witnesses, document production and presentation of evidence. Unless prohibited by law, the party prevailing before the arbitrator shall be entitled to recover the JAMS’s fees and the expenses of the arbitrator from the other party. Governing Law. This Agreement will be governed by the law of the State of Utah, without regard to its choice of law rules, except that the arbitration provisions of this Agreement will be governed by the Federal Arbitration Act. This governing law provision applies no matter where you reside, or where you use the Hardware or Software.

Waiver

No delay or omission by Sorenson to exercise any right or power it has under these Terms and Conditions or to object to the failure of any covenant of you to be performed in a timely and complete manner, shall impair any such right or power or be construed as a waiver of any succeeding breach or any other covenant. Any waivers by Sorenson must be in writing and signed by an authorized representative of Sorenson.

Entire Agreement

These Terms and Conditions constitute the entire agreement between you and Sorenson as it relates to the access to, and use of, the Platform and Websites and the subject matter of these Terms and Conditions and supersede all prior or contemporaneous agreements, negotiations, representations and proposals, written or oral between Sorenson and you.

A printed version of these Terms and Conditions and any notice given in electronic form shall be admissible in judicial proceedings or administrative proceedings based upon or relating to these Terms and Conditions to the same extent and subject to the same conditions as other business documents and records originally generated and maintained in printed form.
