11. General Provisions
Dispute Resolution, Arbitration, Jurisdiction, and Governing Law. Except where prohibited, any dispute, claim, or controversy arising out of or relating to this Agreement, the Service, or the Site shall be submitted to mediation. If the matter cannot be resolved through mediation, then the matter shall be resolved through BINDING ARBITRATION. Judgment upon the award rendered in arbitration shall be entered in any court having jurisdiction thereof. The prevailing party shall be entitled to recover attorney fees and costs in connection with the action. You may not under any circumstances commence or maintain against The Alliance or its affiliates any class action, class arbitration, or other representative action or proceeding.

You are entitled to a fair hearing before the arbitrator. The arbitrator can grant any relief that a court can. Decisions by the arbitrator are enforceable in court and may be overturned by a court only for very limited reasons.
In the event that this arbitration agreement is for any reason held to be unenforceable, any litigation against The Alliance may be commenced only in the federal or state courts located in Durango, La Plata County, Colorado. You hereby irrevocably consent to the jurisdiction of those courts for such purposes. This Agreement, and any dispute between you and The Alliance, shall be governed by the laws of the state of Colorado without regard to principles of conflicts of law, provided that this arbitration agreement shall be governed by the American Arbitration Act.
