Informal Dispute Resolution:  We want to address your concerns without the need of a formal legal case.  Before filing a claim against ARC, you agree to try to resolve the Dispute informally by contacting support@therestaurantboss.com.  We will try to resolve the Dispute informally by contacting you.  If a dispute is not resolved within 30 days after submission, you or ARC may bring a formal proceeding.

Arbitration Fees:  The AAA rules will govern payment of all arbitration fees.

Exceptions to Agreement to Arbitrate:  Either you or ARC may assert claims, if they qualify, in small claims court in Santa Barbara County, California.  Either party may bring a lawsuit solely for injunctive relief to stop unauthorized use or abuse of this License, the ARC Product Software, the Services or any other ARC products, devices or services, or infringement of intellectual property rights (for example, trademark, trade secret, copyright or patent rights) without first engaging in arbitration or the informal dispute-resolution process described above.
