PLEASE READ THIS ARBITRATION PROVISION CAREFULLY. IT PROVIDES THAT ANY DISPUTE MUST BE RESOLVED BY BINDING ARBITRATION. ARBITRATION REPLACES THE RIGHT TO GO TO COURT, INCLUDING THE RIGHT TO A JURY TRIAL, AND THE RIGHT TO INITIATE OR PARTICIPATE IN A CLASS ACTION OR SIMILAR COLLECTIVE OR CONSOLIDATED PROCEEDINGS. IN ARBITRATION, A DISPUTE IS RESOLVED BY AN ARBITRATOR INSTEAD OF A JUDGE OR JURY, AND THE ARBITRATOR’S DECISION IS FINAL AND BINDING. ARBITRATION PROCEEDINGS ARE SIMPLER AND MORE LIMITED THAN COURT PROCEDURES.
INDIVIDUAL CONSUMER ARBITRATION. Our goal is to use individual consumer arbitration as an efficient and cost-effective means of resolving any Dispute (as defined below).

Disputes also may be referred to another arbitration organization if you and we agree in writing.
ARBITRATION PROCEDURES. Any arbitration shall proceed only under the streamlined, expedited, consumer or small-dollar commercial rules of the selected arbitration organization in effect when the arbitration claim is filed and as provided in this Arbitration Provision.

Alternatively, if you chose, the arbitration hearing may conducted in your county of residence or any other location that you and we mutually agree is reasonably convenient. We adhere to and follow the Consumer Due Process Protocol of the AAA, which can be found at: http://www.adr.org/, and the JAMS Minimum Standards of Procedural Fairness for consumer arbitrations, which can be found at http://www.jamsadr.com/rules-consumer-minimum-standards. The arbitration panel shall consist of a single arbitrator chosen by the selected arbitration organization who shall be knowledgeable of the subject matter of the Dispute. No mediation shall be required. The arbitrator shall apply the laws of the Rosebud Sioux Tribe that govern this Agreement. Any arbitration award may be enforced in the courts of the Rosebud Sioux Tribe, or by our governmental regulator [spell out].
