these English-language set of terms and its translation into another language, the English-language Terms set forth
herein shall prevail.
16. Dispute Resolution. YOU AND COMPASS AGREE TO GIVE UP ANY RIGHTS TO LITIGATE CLAIMS IN A COURT
OR BEFORE A JURY OR TO PARTICIPATE IN A CLASS ACTION OR REPRESENTATIVE ACTION WITH RESPECT TO A
CLAIM. OTHER RIGHTS THAT YOU WOULD HAVE IF YOU WENT TO COURT, SUCH AS ACCESS TO DISCOVERY, ALSO
MAY BE UNAVAILABLE OR LIMITED IN ARBITRATION.
Any dispute between you and Compass and its agents, employees, officers, directors, principals, successors, assigns,
subsidiaries or affiliates (collectively for purposes of this section, “Compass”) arising from or relating to these Terms
and their interpretation or the breach, termination or validity thereof, the relationships which result from these Terms,
including disputes about the validity, scope or enforceability of this arbitration provision (collectively, "Covered
Disputes") will be settled by binding arbitration in Cook or DuPage County, State of Illinois as administered by the
American Arbitration Association (AAA) under its Commercial Arbitration Rules, in effect on the date thereof. Prior to
initiating any arbitration, the initiating party will give the other party at least 60-days’ advanced written notice of its
intent to file for arbitration. Compass will provide such notice by e-mail to your e-mail aCompassress on file with
Compass and you must provide such notice by e-mail to legal @compassholding.net with “Legal Dispute” appearing in
the subject line. During such 60-day notice period, the parties will endeavor to settle amicably by mutual discussions
any Covered Disputes. Failing such amicable settlement and expiration of the notice period, either party may initiate
arbitration. Payment of all filing, administration and arbitrator fees will be governed by the AAA's rules. If, however,
you are able to demonstrate that the costs of arbitration will be prohibitive as compared to the costs of litigation,
Compass will pay as much of the filing, administration and arbitrator fees as the arbitrator deems necessary to prevent
the arbitration from being cost-prohibitive for you, but under no circumstances more than fifty percent (50%). Within
sixty (60) days of the final judgment, and if the arbitrator determines the claim(s) you assert in the arbitration are
frivolous, you agree to reimburse Compass for all fees associated with the arbitration that Compass paid on your behalf,
which you otherwise would be obligated to pay under the AAA's rules.
The arbitrator will have the power to grant whatever relief would be available in court under law or in equity and any
award of the arbitrator(s) will be final and binding on each of the parties and may be entered as a judgment in any
court of competent jurisdiction. The arbitrator will not, however, have the power to award punitive or exemplary
damages, the right to which each party hereby waives, and the arbitrator will apply applicable law and the provisions
of these Terms and the failure to do so will be deemed an excess of arbitral authority and grounds for judicial review.
Compass and you agree that any Covered Dispute will be submitted to arbitration on an individual basis only. Neither
Compass nor you are entitled to arbitrate any Covered Dispute as a class, representative or private attorney action and
the arbitrator(s) will have no authority to proceed on a class, representative or private attorney general basis. If any
provision of the agreement to arbitrate in this section is found unenforceable, the unenforceable provision will be
severed and the remaining arbitration terms will be enforced (but in no case will there be a class, representative or
private attorney general arbitration). Regardless of any statute or law to the contrary, notice on any claim arising from
or related to these Terms must be made within one (1) year after such claim arose or be forever barred. For purposes
of this section, these Terms and related transactions will be subject to and governed by the Federal Arbitration Act, 9
U.S.C. sec. 1-16 (FAA).
17. Taxes. You are solely responsible for any and all duties, taxes, levies or fees (including any sales, use or
withholding taxes) imposed on or in connection with these Terms or the Services by any authority.

19. General Provisions. No delay or failure on the part of Compass to enforce any part of these Terms will
constitute a waiver of any of Compass' rights under these Terms whether for past or future actions on the part of any
person. Neither the receipt of any funds by Compass nor the reliance of any person on Compass' actions will be deemed
to constitute a waiver of any part of these terms. Only a specific, written waiver signed by an authorized representative
of Compass will have any legal effect whatsoever. If any provision of these Terms is determined to be illegal, invalid
or unenforceable under present or future law, such provision will be deemed to be deleted without affecting the
enforceability of all remaining provisions. These Terms will inure to the benefit of and will be binding upon each party’s
successors and assigns. These Terms and the rights granted hereunder may be assigned by Compass but you may not
assign them without the prior express written consent of Compass. The headings and captions contained herein are
