Any controversy or claim arising out of or relating to any of the products referenced or purchased by or through this web site, shall be settled by a single arbitrator in arbitration conducted in Cook County, Illinois, in accordance with the Commercial Arbitration Rules of the American Arbitration Association and judgment upon the award rendered by the arbitrator may be entered in any court having jurisdiction thereof. The arbitrator's decision shall be final and non appeal able. Each party shall be entitled to discovery exclusively by the following means: (i) request for admission, (ii) request for production of documents, and (iii) depositions of no more than ten (10) individuals. All discoveries shall be completed, and the arbitration hearing shall commence, within thirty (30) days after the appointment of the arbitrator. Unless the arbitrator finds that exceptional circumstances justify the delay, the hearing will be completed, and an award will be rendered within sixty (60) days of the commencement of the hearing. The arbitrator shall have the authority to settle such controversy or claim by finding that a party should be enjoined from certain actions or be compelled to undertake certain actions, and in such event such court may enter an order enjoining and/or compelling such actions as found by that arbitrator. The arbitrator shall make a determination regarding which party’s legal position in any such controversy or claim is the more substantially correct (the "Prevailing Party") and the arbitrator shall require the other party to pay the legal and other professional fees and costs incurred by the Prevailing Party in connection with such arbitration proceeding and any necessary court action. However, notwithstanding the foregoing, the parties expressly agree that a court of competent jurisdiction may enter a temporary restraining order pending a final award or further order by the arbitrator. Such remedy, however, shall be cumulative and nonexclusive, and shall be in addition to any other remedy to which the parties may be entitled.
