If any Dispute cannot be resolved informally, we each agree that any and all Disputes, other than those filed in small claims court, shall be submitted to final and binding arbitration before a single arbitrator of the American Arbitration Association ("AAA") in a location convenient to you. Either party may commence the arbitration process by submitting a written demand for arbitration with the AAA, and providing a copy to the other party. The arbitration will be conducted in accordance with the provisions of the AAA’s Commercial Dispute Resolutions Procedures, Supplementary Procedures for Consumer-Related Disputes, in effect at the time of submission of the demand for arbitration.
