Choice of Law; Arbitration. All disputes arising in connection with this Agreement will be finally settled solely under the Rules of Conciliation and Arbitration of the International Chamber of Commerce (the “ICC Rules”) by a single arbitrator appointed in accordance with the ICC Rules. The place of arbitration will be Denver, Colorado U.S.A. The arbitrator will determine the matters in dispute in accordance with Colorado law, without giving effect to its conflict of law principles. The arbitration will be conducted in English. The award of the arbitrator: (i) will be the exclusive remedy between the parties regarding any claims, counterclaims, issues or accounting presented or pled to the arbitrator; and (ii) will be made, and will be promptly payable, in U.S. dollars, free of any tax, deduction or offset. The award will include interest from the date of any damages incurred for breach of the contract, and from the date of the award until paid in full, at a rate to be fixed by the arbitrator. If either party incurs legal fees or any other expense to enforce any obligation of the other party under this Agreement, or to investigate or defend against any claim or action by such other party under this Agreement, the prevailing party (as determined by the Arbitrator) will be entitled to recover its reasonable legal and other expenses from the other party in accordance with Article 20(l) of the ICC Rules.”
