I agree that such claims or disputes shall be resolved by binding arbitration before one arbitrator to be administered by the American Arbitration Association (the "AAA") and pursuant to its rules and procedures as found at http://www.adr.org or by a retired New Jersey Superior Court Judge to be selected by the parties.
By initialing and signing below, I/we understand that Arbitration is a waiver of the right to bring suit in a court or judicial forum.

Arbitration is a private and confidential process of resolving claims or disputes at a hearing in front of a neutral third person, conducted outside of a court of law and without a judge or jury.
I/we further agree that the arbitration hearing will take place solely in the State of New Jersey and that the substantive law of New Jersey shall apply to the claim and/or dispute. The Arbitration shall be governed by the New Jersey Alternate Dispute Resolution Act, N.J.S.A. 2A:23A-1 et seq., (“NJADRA”) and the Uniform Arbitration Act, N.J.S.A. 2A: 23B-1 et seq., (“UAA”). The Arbitration proceedings, including all discovery, results, and awards shall be confidential. Unless otherwise agreed, ordered, or awarded, the Parties shall be responsible for paying their own attorneys’ fees and expenses. The arbitrator, and not any federal, state, or local court or agency, shall have exclusive authority to resolve any dispute relating to the interpretation, applicability, enforceability or formation of this Agreement. I further agree that both HIGH EXPOSURE LLC and I/we shall resolve any claims or disputes solely on an individual basis, and shall not be entitled to join or consolidate claims or disputes as a class action, mass tort, representative action, collective action, private attorney-general action, or any proceeding in which HIGH EXPOSURE LLC or I/we acts or proposes to act in a representative capacity. This Agreement does not permit class action arbitrations. I/we agree that such claims or disputes shall be brought within one year of the accrual of such claims or disputes, except for claims of minor children which shall be equitably tolled in accordance with New Jersey law. I understand and acknowledge that the equitable tolling of time to bring a claim or dispute on behalf of a minor child(ren) shall not be construed as modifying any other provision of this Agreement.
