If any provision of this arbitration agreement is found unenforceable, the unenforceable provision shall be severed, and the remaining arbitration terms shall be enforced (but in no case shall there be a class arbitration). All Disputes shall be resolved finally and exclusively by binding individual arbitration with a single arbitrator administered by the American Arbitration Association (www.adr.org) ("AAA") according to this provision and the applicable arbitration rules. To initiate an arbitration proceeding, an arbitration claim must be submitted by the claimant (the "Claimant") to the AAA, and a written Demand for Arbitration must be provided to the other party (the "Opposing Party"), pursuant to the AAA Rules. A form for initiating arbitration proceedings is available on the AAA's website at www.adr.org. The Federal Arbitration Act, 9 U.S.C. §§ 1-16 ("FAA"), fully applies. Arbitration hearings will be held in Scottsdale, Arizona or any other location that is mutually agreed upon by you and Hiro.

Attendance at an in-person hearing may be made by telephone or video conference by you or by Hiro, unless the arbitrator requires otherwise.

    A single arbitrator will be mutually selected by Hiro and you, and shall be (i) a practicing attorney licensed to practice law in Arizona or a retired judge; and (ii) selected from the arbitrators on the AAA's roster of commercial dispute arbitrators who have a background in payroll, health insurance, human resources, and/or online commerce law (or if there are no such arbitrators, then from the arbitrators on the AAA's roster of commercial dispute arbitrators) (collectively, the "Arbitrator Requirements"). If you and Hiro cannot mutually agree upon an arbitrator within ten (10) days of the Opposing Party's receipt of the Demand for Arbitration from the Claimant, then the AAA shall appoint a single arbitrator that satisfies the Arbitrator Requirements. The arbitrator will follow the law and will give effect to any applicable statutes of limitation. The prevailing party shall be entitled to an award of the costs and expenses of the arbitration, including reasonable attorneys' fees and expert witness fees. The award rendered by the arbitrator shall be final and binding upon you and Hiro. A judgment on the award may be entered and enforced in any court of competent jurisdiction. Hiro may, in its sole discretion, commence an action in any state or federal court of competent jurisdiction within the County of Maricopa, AZ, for any monetary amounts that you owe to Hiro (each, an "Action"). You hereby waive any objection to jurisdiction or venue, or any defense claiming lack of jurisdiction or improper venue, in any Action brought by Hiro in such courts.

    You and Hiro agree and acknowledge that this Agreement evidences a transaction involving interstate commerce and that the FAA shall govern the interpretation, enforcement, and proceedings pursuant to the arbitration clause in this Agreement. YOU FURTHER ACKNOWLEDGE, UNDERSTAND, AND AGREE THAT YOU AND HIRO ARE EACH WAIVING THEIR RESPECTIVE RIGHTS TO A TRIAL BY JURY AS TO DISPUTES HEREUNDER AND THAT YOU ARE WAIVING YOUR RIGHT TO PARTICIPATE IN ANY CLASS ACTION PROCEEDING ARISING FROM THIS AGREEMENT. The arbitration provisions shall not apply to (i) any claim related to actual or threatened infringement, misappropriation or violation of a party's copyrights, trademarks, trade secrets, patents, or other intellectual property rights; (ii) any claim seeking emergency injunctive relief based on exigent circumstances (including but not limited to imminent danger or commission of a crime, hacking, or cyber-attack).

  55. Class Action Waiver
  56. You and Hiro agree that any proceedings to resolve or litigate any dispute whether through a court of law or arbitration shall be solely conducted on an individual basis. You agree that you will not seek to have any dispute heard as a class action, representative action, collective action, or private attorney general action.

  57. Severability
  58. In the event that a provision of this Agreement is found to be unlawful, conflicting with another provision of the Agreement, or otherwise unenforceable, the Agreement will remain in force as though it had been entered into without that unenforceable provision being included in it.

  59. Non-Waiver
  60. We reserve all rights permitted to us under this Agreement as well as under the provisions of any applicable law.
