Except for disputes brought in small claims court or tribunal, all disputes between you and Hazel arising out of, relating to or in connection with the Site or Services shall be exclusively settled through binding arbitration pursuant to the then-current rules of Victoria for commercial arbitration.

If the arbitration in this Section is found unenforceable or to not apply for a given dispute, then the proceeding must be brought exclusively in a court of competent jurisdiction in Victoria, Australia. You hereby accept the exclusive jurisdiction of such court for this purpose.

All aspects of the arbitration proceeding, and any ruling, decision, or award by the arbitrator, will be strictly confidential for the benefit of all parties.
