FACTS ABOUT ARBITRATION. ARBITRATION IS A PROCESS IN WHICH A PERSON WITH A DISPUTE: (A) WAIVES THEIR RIGHTS TO FILE A LAWSUIT AND PROCEED IN COURT AND TO HAVE A JURY TRIAL TO RESOLVE THEIR DISPUTES; AND (B) AGREE, INSTEAD, TO SUBMIT THEIR DISPUTES TO A NEUTRAL THIRD PERSON (AN “ARBITRATOR”) FOR DECISION. EACH PARTY TO THE DISPUTE HAS AN OPPORTUNITY TO PRESENT SOME EVIDENCE TO THE ARBITRATOR. PRE-ARBITRATION DISCOVERY MAY BE LIMITED. ARBITRATION PROCEEDINGS ARE PRIVATE AND LESS FORMAL THAN COURT TRIALS. THE ARBITRATOR WILL ISSUE A FINAL AND BINDING DECISION RESOLVING THE DISPUTE, WHICH MAY BE ENFORCED AS A COURT JUDGMENT. A COURT RARELY OVERTURNS AN ARBITRATOR’S DECISION. THEREFORE, YOU ACKNOWLEDGE AND AGREE AS FOLLOWS: 2. Rejection of Arbitration.

The arbitrator shall apply applicable substantive law consistent with the Federal Arbitration Act, 9 U.S.C. §§ 1 et seq. (“FAA”), applicable statutes of limitation, and shall honor claims of privilege recognized at law.

In addition to the parties’ rights to obtain discovery pursuant to the applicable arbitration rules, either you or us may submit a written request to the arbitrator to expand the scope of discovery normally allowed under the rules of the Administrator selected. The arbitrator shall have discretion to grant or deny such request. The arbitrator may decide, with or without a hearing, any motion that is substantially similar to a motion to dismiss for failure to state a claim or a motion for summary judgment. In conducting the arbitration, the arbitrator shall not apply any federal rules of civil procedure or evidence. 11. The Decision of the Arbitrator. At the request by you or us, the arbitrator shall provide a written explanation for the award. The arbitrator must approve the explanation. The arbitrator will apply the applicable substantive law relating to the Dispute and award any remedies available as if the Dispute was heard by a court.

If related third parties or we demand arbitration, then at your written request we will advance your portion of the Arbitration Fees. Throughout the arbitration, each party shall bear his or her own attorneys’ fees and expenses, such as witness and expert witness fees provided that if an arbitrator finds in your favor or the law requires it, we will pay your attorney fee and costs. 14. Appeal of Decision. The arbitrator’s decision is final and binding, except for any right of appeal provided by the FAA. However, if the amount of the dispute is greater than $7500, either you or we can appeal the award to a three-arbitrator panel administered by the selected Administrator which shall reconsider any aspect of the initial award requested by the appealing party. 15.

The Waiver of Jury Trial and Arbitration Provision shall be governed by the Federal Arbitration Act, 9 U.S.C. §§ 1–16 (“FAA”) because the transaction evidenced by this Loan Agreement involves interstate commerce. If a final, non-appealable judgment of a court having jurisdiction over this transaction finds, for any reason, that the FAA does not apply to this transaction, then the Arbitration Provision shall be governed by Charlestown, Nevis. 17. Severability. If any part of this Agreement, including any part of the Arbitration Provision is held invalid or unenforceable, such provision will be considered changed to the extent necessary to comply with law, and the validity or enforceability of any other provision will not be affected; provided, however, that if paragraph 6 precluding the arbitrator from conducting a class or consolidated arbitration is deemed invalid or unenforceable, the entire Arbitration Provision shall be deemed void and if class action litigation or a class-wide arbitration is permitted for any reason with respect to any dispute, either party may require that the entire dispute be heard by a judge, sitting without a jury, under applicable court rules and procedures. These Terms constitute the entire agreement between you and Lender. These Terms shall be governed by the laws Charlestown, Nevis without regard to its conflict of law provisions. If any part of these Terms is determined unenforceable pursuant to applicable law, then the invalid and unenforceable provision will be deemed superseded by a valid and enforceable provision that most closely matches the intent of the original provision and the remainder of these Terms shall remain in effect. Any failure by Lender to exercise or enforce any right or provision of these Terms will not be deemed a waiver of such right or provision. Lender may amend these Terms at any time by posting the amended terms on its web site. All amended terms are automatically effective immediately, upon posting.
