19. Arbitration Agreement. YOU WAIVE ALL RIGHTS TO COMMENCE LEGAL PROCEEDINGS TO RESOLVE ANY DISPUTE ARISING FROM OR RELATING TO THIS AGREEMENT EXCEPT AS EXPRESSLY SET FORTH HEREIN. All disputes and claims relating to Arbonne, or its past or present related entities, officers, directors, employees, investors, distributors or vendors, its marketing and compensation plan, its products, the rights and obligations of an Independent Consultant and Arbonne, or any other claims or causes of action relating to the performance of either an Independent Consultant or Arbonne under the Independent Consultant Agreement, or the purchase of products shall be settled totally and finally by mediation and binding arbitration as set forth herein. If a dispute arises, it is expected that the parties will attempt in good faith to resolve any such dispute in an amicable and mutually satisfactory manner.
In the event such efforts are unsuccessful, and as a prerequisite to filing a claim in arbitration, either party may serve a notice requesting mediation ("Notice of Dispute") on the other party. Notice of Dispute shall be personally delivered or sent by prepaid registered airmail or overnight courier, and shall be effective on receipt thereof by the party to whom it is addressed. Proof of receipt shall be a receipt signed by any officer or responsible official of the party to whom it is addressed. The Notice of Dispute shall be dated, and without prejudice to any right under this Agreement permitting subsequent modifications, shall specify the claims or issues which are to be subjected to mediation, including the requested remedies sought in the mediation. The dispute or claim shall be submitted to mediation in accordance with, and subject to, The Institute of Arbitrators & Mediators Australia Mediation and Conciliation Rules. The party serving the Notice of Dispute shall be responsible for the costs of the mediation, or any subsequent arbitration, charged by The Institute of Arbitrators & Mediators Australia. If the dispute or difference is not settled within 30 days of the submission to mediation (unless such period is extended by agreement of the parties), it shall be and is hereby submitted to arbitration in accordance with, and subject to, The Institute of Arbitrators & Mediators Australia Rules for the Conduct of Commercial Arbitrations. For disputes in which the quantum is less than $50,000 arbitration shall take place using the submission of documents alone unless both parties agree otherwise.
Notwithstanding any provision of the rules under which the arbitration is conducted, the party in whose favour the arbitration award is rendered shall be entitled to recover costs and expenses of the arbitration including, but not limited to, legal fees and the cost and expense of administration of the arbitration proceedings, and any costs and legal fees incurred in executing on or enforcing the arbitration award. At any time a party may, without any inconsistency with this agreement to resolve disputes by mediation or arbitration, seek urgent interlocutory relief in respect of the subject matter of the dispute from any court having jurisdiction. Such urgent interlocutory relief may be vacated, continued or modified by the arbitral tribunal at the request of any party. Any party may seek, to the full extent allowed by law, judicial enforcement in a court having jurisdiction of any urgent interlocutory relief granted by the arbitral tribunal.
The existence of any claim or cause of action of an Independent Consultant against Arbonne whether predicated on the Consultant Agreement or otherwise shall not constitute a defence to Arbonne's enforcement of an Independent Consultant's covenants and agreements contained herein or under the Agreement. This agreement to arbitrate shall survive any termination or expiration of any other agreements between the parties.
Jurisdiction and venue of any matter not subject to mediation or arbitration shall exclusively reside in the State of New South Wales, Australia, unless the laws of the state in which you reside expressly requires the application of its laws. The law of the State of New South Wales, Australia shall govern all other matters relating to or arising from this Agreement. This Agreement is deemed to have been made and entered into at Sydney in the State of New South Wales, Australia.
20. Waiver. No delay or omission by either party hereto to exercise any right or power occurring upon any noncompliance or default by the other party with respect to any of the terms of this Agreement shall impair any such right or power or be construed to be a waiver thereof. The terms and conditions of this Agreement may be waived or amended only in writing and only by the party that is entitled to the benefits of the term(s) or condition(s) being waived or amended. Unless stated otherwise, all remedies provided for in this Agreement shall be cumulative and in addition to and not in lieu of any other remedies available to either party at law, in equity, or otherwise.
21. Unenforceability. If any provision of this Agreement or any word, phrase, clause, sentence, or other portion thereof should be held to be unenforceable or invalid for any reason, then provided that the essential consideration for entering into this Agreement on the part of any party is not unreasonably impaired, such provision or portion thereof shall be modified or deleted in such manner as to render this Agreement as modified legal and enforceable to the maximum extent permitted under applicable laws.
