10. MANDATORY ARBITRATION
10.1. The parties understand that they would have had a right or opportunity to litigate disputes through a court and to have a judge or jury decide their case, but they choose to have any disputes resolved through arbitration.
10.2. We each agree that any claim or dispute between us, and any claim by either of us against any agent, employee, successor or assign of the other, including, to the full extent permitted by applicable law, third parties who are not signatories to this agreement, whether related to this agreement or otherwise, including past, present, and future claims and disputes, and including any dispute as to the validity or applicability of this arbitration clause, shall be resolved by binding arbitration administered by the JAMS under its rules and procedures in effect when the claim is filed.

10.4. Exception to Arbitrate. Either of us may bring qualifying claims in small claims court. Further, pursuant to Section 12 below, we each agree that any arbitration will be solely between you and Makino, not as part of a classwide claim (i.e., not brought on behalf of or together with another individual's claim). If for any reason any court or arbitrator holds that this restriction in Section 12 is unconscionable or unenforceable, then our agreement to arbitrate doesn't apply and the classwide dispute must be brought in court.
