Prior to beginning an arbitration proceeding, you agree to provide notice of your claim to Chef Equation®, through our registered agent, Art Is In Cakes, Attn: Dispute, 9807 W. Markham St., Little Rock, Arkansas 72205. Any pre-arbitration notice under this paragraph will describe the claim, the facts surrounding the claim, and the basis to which you claim a lawful right to recovery. Chef Equation® will respond to any such pre-arbitration notice within 30 days, with a denial of your claim, an acceptance of your claim, or a counteroffer to your claim. Chef Equation® may take any of these actions in its sole and own discretion. If Chef Equation® denies your claim or makes a counteroffer to your claim, you may accept the denial or counteroffer in your sole discretion. If you seek review through arbitration after the denial or counteroffer, you shall file your notice of arbitration proceeding within ninety (90) days of the date written on the denial or counteroffer letter from Chef Equation®. Within the ninety (90) days after the denial or counteroffer letter from Chef Equation®, if you decide to pursue binding arbitration, you must send a letter requesting arbitration again describing your claim to Chef Equation®, in care of our registered agent: “Art Is In Cakes, Attn: Arbitration Request, 9807 W. Markham St., Little Rock, AR 72205.” Payment of all filing, administration, and arbitrator fees and costs will be governed by the AAA's rules. If Chef Equation® pays the filing, administration, and arbitrator fees and costs because you were unable to pay those fees according to AAA’s rules upon your initial filing, and the arbitrator later determines your claims are frivolous, you agree to reimburse Chef Equation® the actual costs of filing fees, administration, and arbitrator fees and costs, and agree to have a judgment entered against you upon which Chef Equation® may execute in any court of competent jurisdiction. Likewise, Chef Equation® will not seek its attorneys' fees or costs in arbitration unless the arbitrator determines your claims or defenses are frivolous. You may choose to have the arbitration conducted by telephone, based on written submissions, or in person in the county where you live or at another mutually agreed location. The decision of the arbitrator shall be final and not appealable, and judgment on the arbitration award may be entered in any court having jurisdiction thereof. This Section 14 shall survive expiration, termination or rescission of this Agreement.

THIS PROVISION INCLUDES ALL CLAIMS RAISED BY YOU AGAINST Chef Equation® IN ANY ACTION OR CLAIM BASED ON CONTRACT, TORT, OR OTHERWISE.

If any court of law, having the jurisdiction, rules that any part of this Agreement is invalid, that section will be removed without affecting the remainder of the Agreement. The remaining terms will be valid and enforceable. The United Nations Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods does not apply to this Agreement.
