Arbitration.  Strava and Licensee shall use their best efforts to settle any dispute, claim, question, or disagreement directly through good-faith negotiations, which shall be a precondition to either party initiating a lawsuit or arbitration. Except for disputes relating to the Strava’s intellectual property (such as trademarks, trade dress, domain names, trade secrets, copyrights, and patents), or as otherwise noted on an Order Form, all claims arising out of or relating to these Metro TOU and Order Forms shall be finally settled by binding arbitration administered by JAMS in accordance with its provisions and procedures for consumer-related disputes, excluding any rules or procedures governing or permitting class actions. The arbitrator, and not any court or agency, shall have exclusive authority to resolve all disputes arising out of or relating to this Agreement, including, but not limited to, any claim that all or any part of these Metro TOU are void or voidable. The arbitrator shall be empowered to grant whatever relief would be available in a court; provided, however, that the arbitrator will not have authority to award damages, remedies, or awards that conflict with these Metro TOU. The arbitrator’s award shall be binding on the parties and may be entered as a judgment in any court of competent jurisdiction. To the extent a claim is between Strava and an individual Authorized User, the filing fee for the arbitration exceeds the cost of filing a lawsuit, Strava will pay the additional cost. You and Strava hereby expressly waive trial by jury.  This dispute resolution provision will be governed by the Federal Arbitration Act. This provision does not apply to users who live in the European Union. The parties understand that, absent this mandatory provision, they would have the right to sue in court and have a jury trial. They further understand that, in some instances, the costs of arbitration could exceed the costs of litigation and that the right to discovery may be more limited in arbitration than in court.
    15. Remedies. The parties acknowledge and agree that for any breach by Licensee of these Metro TOU, there may be no adequate remedy at law and that such breach could cause irreparable harm to Strava; therefore, Strava will have the right, in addition to any other remedies available, to seek immediate injunctive relief.
    16. Counterparts. These Metro TOU may be executed in several counterparts, each of which will constitute an original and all of which, when taken together, will constitute one and the same agreement.
