DISPUTE RESOLUTION

AGREEMENT TO RESOLVE ALL DISPUTES THROUGH ARBITRATION OR IN SMALL CLAIMS COURT AND AGREEMENT TO WAIVE A RIGHT TO JURY TRIAL AND TO PARTICIPATION IN CLASS ACTIONS

You and Custer Fair agree to resolve any controversy, dispute, or claim arising out of or relating to your purchase of any product or service from Custer Fair by binding Arbitration administered by the American Arbitration Association, or in a small claims court, and judgment on the arbitration award rendered by the Arbitrator(s) may be entered in a court having competent jurisdiction. This agreement to arbitrate is intended to be broadly interpreted and covers all controversies, disputes, claims arising out or relating to your purchase including, but not limited to contract claims, tort claims and statutory claims, or any combination of claims. We agree that the arbitration or small claim proceeding will take place in Cook County, Illinois.

We agree that the American Arbitration Association shall administer the arbitration, and that the American Arbitration Association's Commercial Arbitration Rules and Mediation Procedures and Consumer Related Disputes Supplementary Procedures, if applicable, shall apply. These Arbitration Rules may be found on the American Arbitration Association's web site at www.adr.org. You and Custer Fair agree that the Arbitration Award maybe taken to a Court of competent jurisdiction to become an enforceable judgment. You and Custer Fair agree that any arbitration under this Agreement will take place on an individual basis. Class arbitrations and class actions are not permitted.

If you wish to begin arbitration against Custer Fair you must file a case with the American Arbitration Association. You may visit the American Arbitration Association's web site at www.adr.org to obtain forms and guidance and to learn the procedure for filing a case under this Arbitration Agreement.

This Arbitration Agreement affects your legal rights. An arbitration is resolved by a neutral party and not a judge or jury. There is less discovery and less exchange of information between the parties to an arbitration than might occur in a court proceeding. An arbitration award is final and binding and will only be overturned or reversed by a court in very limited circumstances. You agree that, by entering into this Agreement, you and Custer Fair are each waiving the right to a trial by jury or to participate in a class action.
