    1. WAIVER. YOU UNDERSTAND THAT BY AGREEING TO BINDING ARBITRATION, YOU ARE GIVING UP YOUR RIGHT TO A TRIAL BY JURY. YOU UNDERSTAND AND AGREE THAT BY AGREEING TO BINDING ARBITRATION ON AN INDIVIDUAL BASIS, YOU MAY NOT BRING A CLAIM AGAINST CRP IN A CLASS ACTION LAWSUIT, AND THE ARBITRATOR MAY NOT CONSOLIDATE OR JOIN ONE OR MORE PERSON’S OR PARTY’S CLAIMS IN A CLASS OR PROCEEDING. In the event a court determines that the foregoing is unenforceable, then such claim must be severed from the arbitration and brought in court, subject to CRP’s right to appeal.
    2. Good Faith Discussions. You and CRP must first attempt to resolve any dispute by good faith discussions or email. If the parties cannot resolve a dispute with good faith discussions, then either party may submit the dispute to binding arbitration as set forth in these Terms of Use.
    3. Rules. You and CRP agree that arbitration will be conducted by the American Arbitration Association (''AAA'') in accordance with its Consumer Arbitration Rules, then in effect and as amended herein (''Rules''). The Rules can be found at: https://www.adr.org/Rules. You agree that this agreement to arbitrate involves a transaction of interstate commerce and therefore the Federal Arbitration Act will govern the interpretation and enforceability of this agreement to arbitrate.
    4. Initiating a Claim. The party desiring to initiate arbitration must provide the other party a Demand for Arbitration in accordance with the Rules and the parties will thereafter mutually agree upon the arbitrator. If the parties cannot agree upon the arbitrator within ten (10) days, an arbitrator will be appointed in accordance with the Rules.
    5. Arbitrator. Arbitration shall be before one (1) arbitrator who shall have exclusive authority to resolve any disputes arising under these Terms of Use or with regard to the Site, including as to the enforceability and/or formation of this agreement to arbitrate made between you and CRP.
    6. Location. You agree that arbitration shall take place exclusively in Indiana. However, where the disclosed claims or counterclaims do not exceed $25,000, the dispute may be resolved by the submission of documents only/desk arbitration (see the Rules for more details). Either party may, however, ask for a hearing, or the arbitrator may decide a hearing is necessary.
    7. Time Limit. Any claim by you arising in connection with these Terms of Use, the Site or the Content must be commenced by you within one (1) year of the dispute giving rise to the claim.
    8. Confidentiality. The parties will not make any comments or announcements to the public about the subject matter or outcome of any arbitration.
    9. Changes to this Agreement to Arbitrate. If CRP modifies this arbitration provision, you may reject that change by sending CRP written notice within thirty (30) days of our posting of the change, in which case you must immediately stop using the Site.
    10. The Arbitrator’s Decision. The arbitrator’s decisions and judgment will be final and binding on the parties but will have no precedential effect. The arbitrator shall not have the authority to award damages outside of those set forth in these Terms of Use.
    11. Costs and Expenses. Each party shall pay their own expenses and fees, including their own attorneys’ fees, arising from arbitration, unless the arbitrator determines that your claims were improper or frivolous, in which case the arbitrator may require you to reimburse us for certain fees and expenses in accordance with the Rules.
    12. Exceptions. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in this section, you and CRP each retain the right to bring an individual action in small claims court and the right to seek injunctive or other equitable relief in a court of competent jurisdiction to prevent the actual or threatened infringement, misappropriation or violation of a party’s intellectual property rights.
  27. Governing Law. Unless expressly prohibited by the law of your place of residence, these Terms of Use, and your access to and use of the Site, are governed by the laws of Indiana, without regard to its conflict of laws principles. Venue is exclusively in the state or federal courts, as applicable, located in Marion County, Indiana. The parties expressly agree to the exclusive jurisdiction of those courts. 
  28. Entire Agreement. These Terms contain the entire agreement between you and CRP with respect to your access to and use of the Site and the Content. In the event of conflict between these Terms of Use and our Privacy Policy, our Privacy Policy will control.  
  29. Severability. If any provision of these Terms of Use is held invalid, void, or unenforceable, that provision will be severed from the remaining provisions and the remaining provisions will remain in full force and effect. The headings in these Terms of Use are for convenience only and do not affect the interpretation of these Terms of Use.
