Any dispute between you and RFQNET arising out of or relating in any way to your access or use of this website shall initially be addressed through confidential negotiations, which shall be treated as compromise and settlement negotiations under the relevant rules of evidence. If the matter in dispute has not been resolved within thirty (30) days of the initiating party's written request for negotiation, the parties shall endeavor to first settle the dispute by mediation administered by the American Arbitration Association under its Commercial Mediation Rules. A neutral Third-Party will be selected in accordance with the selection process. During the time period set forth below, mediation shall be the sole and exclusive procedure for resolution of any such dispute. If the dispute is still not resolved within sixty (60) days after mediation begins, either party may demand arbitration administered by the American Arbitration Association under its Commercial Arbitration Rules, and judgment on the award rendered by the arbitrator may be entered in any court having jurisdiction thereof as described in the following paragraph. If the parties agree, a mediator involved in the parties' mediation may be asked to serve as the arbitrator.

Any dispute between you and RFQNET described in the previous paragraph shall be brought before an alternative dispute resolution body within 50 miles of RFQNET’s corporate headquarters as of the date of the initiating party's written request for negotiation. You agree that any such body shall have personal jurisdiction over you for purposes of any such dispute. Further, any judgment on the award rendered by the arbitrator may be entered only in a court within 50 miles of RFQNET’s corporate headquarters as of the date the award is rendered by the arbitrator. You agree that any such court shall have personal jurisdiction over you for purposes of any such judgment.

You agree that the cost of mediation and any subsequent arbitration as described above shall be split equally between you and RFQNET.

Should mediation or arbitration as described herein not take place or not completely resolve a dispute for any reason, you agree that the sole jurisdiction and venue for any litigation arising from your use of our website shall be an appropriate court located in the Province of Ontario, Canada, and you hereby submit to the jurisdiction of these courts.
