The arbitration proceeding will be limited solely to the dispute or controversy between you and us. YOU ACKNOWLEDGE THAT YOU ARE GIVING UP YOUR RIGHTS TO LITIGATE CLAIMS IN A COURT OR BEFORE A JURY WITH RESPECT TO ANY SUCH CLAIM.
- Nothing in this Section shall be deemed to prohibit either party from seeking an injunction or other equitable relief in any court of competent jurisdiction to protect or preserve ours or our licensors' rights in and to intellectual property or confidential information.
- If there is a final judicial determination that any particular claim cannot be arbitrated in accordance with this provision, then only that claim (or only that request for relief) may be brought in court. All other claims (or requests for relief) remain subject to this provision.
