12. Governing Law
Without limitation to Your consent to binding arbitration as set forth below, any claim by You against Reorg Research shall be governed by the laws of State of New York and without regard to its conflict of law provisions. You agree that the forum for any claim arising thereunder will be in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York or the appropriate New York state court.

The arbitration shall be commenced and conducted under the Commercial Arbitration Rules of the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”) and, where appropriate, the AAA’s Supplementary Procedures for Consumer Related Disputes (“AAA Consumer Rules”), both of which are available on the AAA web site www.adr.org. The determination of whether a dispute is subject to arbitration shall be governed by the Federal Arbitration Act and determined by a court rather than an arbitrator. Your arbitration fees and your share of arbitrator compensation shall be governed by the AAA Rules and, where appropriate, limited by the AAA Consumer Rules. If such costs are determined by the arbitrator to be excessive, Reorg Research will pay all arbitration fees and expenses. The arbitration may be conducted in person, through the submission of documents, by phone or online. The arbitrator will make a decision in writing, and will provide a statement of reasons if requested by a party. Except as otherwise provided in this Agreement, You and Reorg Research 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.
