You agree to abide by all limitations of liability contained herein.You also agree to first contact Crescendo Bioscience regarding any claim or controversy arising out of or relating to these Terms, or any breach thereof. In the event such claim or controversy cannot be resolved informally, you and Crescendo Bioscience agree to try in good faith to settle the dispute by mediation under the Commercial Mediation Rules of the American Arbitration Association, before resorting to arbitration or litigation. Any claim or controversy arising out of or relating to these Terms, or any breach thereof, except such claims or controversies for which injunctive relief is available, that cannot be resolved by mediation within 30 days shall be finally settled by arbitration administered by the American Arbitration Association in accordance with its Commercial Arbitration Rules including the Supplementary Procedures for Consumer-Related Disputes (collectively, “AAA Rules”), and judgment on the award rendered by the arbitrator(s) may be entered in any court having jurisdiction thereof. The AAA Rules are available online at adr.org or by calling 1-800-778-7879.

These Terms evidence a transaction in interstate commerce, and thus the Federal Arbitration Act governs the interpretation and enforcement of this provision.

If the claim or controversy is for $10,000 or less, Crescendo Bioscience agrees that you may choose whether the arbitration will be conducted solely on the basis of documents submitted to the arbitrator(s), through a telephonic hearing or by an in-person hearing as established by the AAA Rules. If the claim or controversy exceeds $10,000, the right to a hearing will be determined by the AAA Rules. Regardless of the manner in which the arbitration is conducted, the award of the arbitrator(s) shall be accompanied by a statement of the reasons upon which the award is based.If any provision of these Terms is unlawful, void or for any reason unenforceable, then that provision shall be deemed severable from these Terms and shall not affect the validity and enforceability of any remaining provisions.
