If the dispute or controversy has not been resolved thirty (30) days after such notice is given, either party may initiate a legal action or proceeding or make a demand for arbitration in accordance with this section, as applicable. Any dispute or controversy arising from or relating to this Agreement or the enforcement of any provision of this Agreement (other than any claim based on unauthorized use of the Application or your infringement or misappropriation of any intellectual property rights (an “IP Claim”)) (collectively, a “Dispute”), must be arbitrated in Atlanta, Georgia before a single arbitrator who is jointly selected and mutually approved by the parties or, if the parties are unable to or fail to agree on the selection of the arbitrator within fifteen (15) days of the demand for arbitration being served, who is appointed by Judicial Arbitration and Mediation Services (JAMS) in accordance with its rules.
