By agreeing to these Terms, you agree that any and all disputes, controversies, or claims (whether in contract, tort, or under any statute, regulation, ordinance, or any other source of law) arising under or relating in any way to this agreement, to the contractual relationship established by these Terms, or to our Products, Sites, or services shall be resolved on an individual basis through binding arbitration administered by the American Arbitration Association, in accordance with the American Arbitration Association’s then-existing rules for arbitration of consumer-related disputes (accessible at https://www.adr.org/Rules), except that you may assert individual claims in small claims court, if your claims qualify.

The failure of GBG to exercise or enforce any right or provision of these Terms shall not operate as a waiver of such right or provision. Any waiver of these Terms by GBG must be in writing and signed by an authorized representative of GBG.
