Notwithstanding the foregoing, nothing in this Section shall be deemed as preventing iSportz from seeking injunctive or other equitable relief from the courts as necessary to prevent the actual or threatened infringement, misappropriation, or violation of iSportz’ data security, Intellectual Property Rights or other proprietary rights. d. For residents outside the United States, arbitration shall be initiated in Lake Mary, FL, and Customer and iSportz agree to submit to the personal jurisdiction of any state or federal court in Seminole, FL to compel arbitration, stay proceedings pending arbitration, or to confirm, modify, vacate, or enter judgment on the award entered by the arbitrator.
e. Customer and iSportz each agree to resolve any claim, dispute, or controversy (excluding any claims for injunctive or other equitable relief as provided herein) arising out of or in connection with or relating to this Agreement, or the breach or alleged breach thereof (collectively, “Claims”), by binding arbitration by JAMS, under the Optional Expedited Arbitration Procedures then in effect for JAMS, except as provided herein.
f. iSportz shall bear the cost of any arbitration filing fees and arbitration fees up to Five Hundred Dollars ($500.00). Customer is responsible for all other additional costs that Customer may incur in the arbitration including, but not limited to attorneys’ fees and expert witness costs unless iSportz is otherwise specifically required to pay such fees under applicable law.

Customer and iSportz further understand that, in some instances, the costs of arbitration could exceed the costs of litigation and the right to discovery may be more limited in arbitration than in court.
g. If Customer’s claim is solely for monetary relief of Ten Thousand Dollars ($10,000) or less and does not include a request for any type of equitable remedy, Customer may choose whether the arbitration will be conducted solely based on documents submitted to the arbitrator, through a telephonic hearing, or by an in-person hearing under the JAMS Rules.
