In those cases, the third party service provider is the only party responsible for providing services to Customer. In those cases, Customer will look solely to the third party service provider for any loss, claims or damages arising from or relating to the purchase or provision of such services.

If arbitration is chosen, it will be conducted pursuant to the Rules of the American Arbitration Association, with offices in Phoenix, Arizona. If arbitration is chosen by any party with respect to a Claim, neither The Launch Pad nor Customer will have the right to litigate that Claim in court or to have a jury trial on that Claim or to engage in pre-arbitration discovery, except as provided for in the applicable arbitration rules or by agreement of the parties. Further, Customer will not have the right to participate as a representative or member of any class of claimants pertaining to any Claim. Notwithstanding any choice of law provision included in these terms and conditions of sale, this arbitration agreement is subject to the Federal Arbitration Act (9 U.S.C. §§ 1-16). The arbitration will take place in Phoenix, Arizona. Any court having jurisdiction may enter judgment on the award rendered by the arbitrator(s). Each party will bear its own cost of any legal representation, discovery or research required to complete arbitration. The existence or results of any arbitration will be treated as confidential. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained herein, all matters pertaining to the collection of amounts due to The Launch Pad arising out of sales hereunder will be exclusively litigated in court rather than through arbitration.
