9. Dispute Resolution
You agree that any dispute, claim or controversy arising out of or relating to these Terms of Service or your use of the Service will be settled by binding arbitration. If there is a dispute about whether these Terms of Service can be enforced or applies to a dispute, you and BCC agree that the arbitrator will decide that issue.

Further, unless both you and BCC otherwise agree in writing, the arbitrator(s) may not consolidate more than one person/entity’s claims, and may not otherwise preside over any form of any class or representative proceeding. The arbitration will be administered by the American Arbitration Association in accordance with the Consumer Arbitration Rules then in effect, except as modified by this “Dispute Resolution” section. The party prevailing in such arbitration shall be entitled to collect from the other party all costs incurred in such dispute, including reasonable attorney fees.
