15. Governing Laws. The terms of this Agreement are governed by the laws of the United States (including federal arbitration law) and the State of Delaware, U.S.A., without regard to its principles of conflicts of law, and regardless of your location. You agree to exclusive jurisdiction of the federal and state courts located in New Castle County, Delaware, U.S.A., and waive any jurisdictional, venue or inconvenient forum objections to such courts.
Except for disputes that qualify for small claims court, all disputes arising out of or related to this Agreement or any aspect of the relationship between you and the Celltrion USA, whether based in contract, tort, statute, fraud, misrepresentation or any other legal theory, will be resolved through final and binding arbitration before a neutral arbitrator instead of in a court by a judge or jury and you agree that Celltrion USA and you are each waiving the right to trial by a jury. Such disputes include, without limitation, disputes arising out of or relating to interpretation or application of this arbitration provision, including the enforceability, revocability or validity of the arbitration provision or any portion of the arbitration provision. All such matters shall be decided by an arbitrator and not by a court or judge.
You agree that any arbitration under this Agreement will take place on an individual basis; class arbitrations and class actions are not permitted and you are agreeing to give up the ability to participate in a class action.
The parties agree that any disputes arising out of or relating to this Agreement shall be resolved through binding arbitration administered by the American Arbitration Association ("AAA") in accordance with its Consumer Arbitration Rules, as amended by this Agreement. The AAA Consumer Arbitration Rules: https://www.adr.org/sites/default/files/Consumer%20Rules.pdf. The arbitrator shall conduct hearings, if any, by teleconference or videoconference, rather than by personal appearances, unless the arbitrator determines upon request by either party that an in-person hearing is appropriate. Any in-person appearances shall be held at a location that is reasonably convenient to both parties, with due consideration of their ability to travel and other pertinent circumstances. If the parties are unable to agree on a location, the AAA or the arbitrator shall make such determination. The arbitrator's decision shall follow the terms of this Agreement and shall be final and binding. The arbitrator shall have the authority to award temporary, interim or permanent injunctive relief or relief providing for specific performance of this Agreement, but only to the extent necessary to provide relief warranted by the individual claim before the arbitrator. The award rendered by the arbitrator may be confirmed and enforced in any court having jurisdiction thereof. Notwithstanding any of the foregoing, nothing in this Agreement shall preclude either party from bringing issues to the attention of federal, state or local agencies, and, if the law allows, seeking relief against the other party.
