The arbitrator must follow applicable law, and any award may be challenged if the arbitrator fails to do so. Except as otherwise provided in this Agreement, you and Authentic Botanicals LLC may litigate in court to compel arbitration, stay proceeding pending arbitration, or to confirm, modify, vacate or enter judgment on the award entered by the arbitrator. The prevailing party in arbitration will be entitled to an award of attorneys’ fees and expenses, to the extent provided under applicable law. In any dispute, neither party will assert that the Agreement is invalid due to illegality.
The location of Arbitration will take place exclusively in Seattle, Washington. You and Authentic Botanicals LLC agree that for any Dispute not subject to arbitration (other than claims proceeding in any small claims court), or where no election to arbitrate has been made, the Washington state and Federal courts located in King County have exclusive jurisdiction and you and Authentic Botanicals LLC agree to submit to the personal jurisdiction of such courts.

You may choose to have the arbitration conducted by telephone, based on written submissions, or in person in the county where you live or at another mutually agreed location.
