Dispute Resolution
In the event that there is disagreement related to the i mplementation of the terms of this Agreement, all parties hereby agree to submit such differences to binding arbitrati on by a mutually agreeable arbitrator after seeking mediation. Therefore, they agree that an y claim or dispute between them or against the other or any agent of the other relat ed to or arising out of this contract, and all disputes about the validity of this arbitration clause, shall be r esolved first by seeking a mutually agreeable mediator to help them resolve the dispute, but if they cannot agree or mediation fails, then by binding arbitration by a mutually agreeable arbitrator, but if they cannot agree on the mutually agreeable arbitrator, then by a panel of three arbitrators. This panel will consist of one arbitrator selected by each party, and these two arbitrators will select a third, impartial arbitrator. The two arbitrators’ selection of the third ar bitrator will be final and conclusive upon the parties. If any party fails to select an arbitrator within thirty ( 30) days of notice from the other of a dispute being submitted to arbitration, then that arbitrator will be appointed in accordance with the then current rules of The Institute for Christian Conciliat ion. It is expected that the parties shall each select a spiritually mature person as an arbit rator and conduct the arbitration under biblical principles and the then-cur rent rules of The Institute for Christian Conciliation.
CCE reserves the right to amend or replace these Terms of Service at any time at its sole discreti on. If a modification is significant, we will make reasonable efforts to provide notice before any new terms take effect.
