- Disputes. Any controversy, allegation, or claim between you and GlobalisMedia.com arising out of or relating to the GlobalisMedia.com Services, the GlobalisMedia.com Content, the Content, this Agreement, or any Additional Terms, whether heretofore or hereafter arising are “Disputes”.

If you or GlobalisMedia.com becomes aware of a Dispute, then you and we agree to send a written notice to the other providing a reasonable description of the Dispute, along with a proposed resolution of it. Our notice to you will be sent to you based on the most recent contact information that you provide us. But if no such information exists or if such information is not current, then we have no obligation under this Section 17.1.1. Your notice to us must be sent to: Globalis Media Inc., Att: Admin Dept., Keppel Center #1002B, Cebu Business Park, Cebu City 6000 Philippines. For a period of sixty (60) days from the date of receipt of notice from the other party, GlobalisMedia.com and you will engage in a dialogue in order to attempt to resolve the Dispute, though nothing will require either you or GlobalisMedia.com to resolve the Dispute on terms with respect to which you and GlobalisMedia.com , in each of our sole discretion, are not comfortable.
- Arbitration of Most Disputes. If we cannot resolve a Dispute as set forth in Section 17.1.1 within sixty (60) days of receipt of the notice, then either you or we may submit the Dispute to formal arbitration in accordance with this Section 17.1, unless it is an Excluded Dispute, which shall be handled in accordance with Section 17.2.
- Arbitrator. Upon expiration of the applicable sixty (60)-day period and to the fullest extent permitted by applicable law, a Dispute will be resolved solely by binding arbitration in accordance with then-current arbitration rules & procedures.
- Nature, Limitations, and Location of Alternative Dispute Resolution. In arbitration, as with a court, the arbitrator must honor the terms of this Agreement (and any Additional Terms) and can award the prevailing party damages and other relief (including attorneys’ fees). However, WITH ARBITRATION: (A) THERE IS NO JUDGE OR JURY, (B) THE ARBITRATION PROCEEDINGS AND ARBITRATION OUTCOME ARE SUBJECT TO CERTAIN CONFIDENTIALITY RULES, AND (C) JUDICIAL REVIEW OF THE ARBITRATION OUTCOME IS LIMITED. All parties to the arbitration will have the right, at their own expense, to be represented by an attorney or other advocate of their choosing. If an in-person arbitration hearing is required, then it will be conducted in the “metropolitan statistical area” (as defined by the U.S. Census Bureau) where you are a resident at the time the Dispute is submitted to arbitration. You and we will pay the administrative and arbitrator’s fees and other costs in accordance with the applicable arbitration rules; but, if applicable arbitration rules or laws require GlobalisMedia.com to pay a greater portion or all of such fees and costs in order for this Section 17 to be enforceable, then GlobalisMedia.com will have the right to elect to pay the fees and costs and proceed to arbitration. Discovery will be permitted pursuant to the applicable arbitration rules. The arbitrator’s decision must consist of a written statement stating the disposition of each claim of the Dispute, and must provide a statement of the essential findings and conclusions on which the decision and any award (if any) is based. Judgment on the arbitration decision and award (if any) may be entered in or by any court that has jurisdiction over the parties.
- No Class Action Matters. Disputes will be arbitrated only on an individual basis and will not be consolidated with any other arbitrations or other proceedings that involve any claim or controversy of any other party. But if, for any reason, any court with competent jurisdiction or any arbitrator selected pursuant to Section 17.1.3 holds that this restriction is unconscionable or unenforceable, then our agreement in Section 17.1.2 to arbitrate will not apply, and the Dispute must be brought exclusively in court pursuant to Section 17.3.
- Limited Time to File Claims. TO THE FULLEST EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW, IF YOU OR WE WANT TO ASSERT A DISPUTE (BUT NOT A EXCLUDED DISPUTE) AGAINST THE OTHER, THEN YOU OR WE MUST COMMENCE IT (BY DELIVERY OF WRITTEN NOTICE AS SET FORTH IN SECTION 17.1.1 WITHIN ONE (1) YEAR AFTER DISCOVERY OF THE DISPUTE ARISES — OR IT WILL BE FOREVER BARRED.
