Any dispute or disagreement relating to this Agreement will be settled by confidential, binding arbitration administered by the International Centre for Dispute Resolution of the American Arbitration Association ("AAA") pursuant to the AAA Commercial Arbitration Rules and the Procedures for Large, Complex Commercial Disputes. The arbitration venue will be Chicago, Illinois, except: (i) if your principal place of business is in Europe, then the venue will be London, UK; and (ii) if your principal place of business is in Asia, Australia, or New Zealand, then the venue will be Singapore, Republic of Singapore.

The arbitration panel will be selected as follows: you and UL Solutions or UL Solutions Company (as applicable) will request a list of ten (10) arbitrators drawn from the AAA's panel of commercial arbitrators (to be experienced in and familiar with the AAA's Procedures for Large, Complex Commercial Disputes). From this list, both parties will each choose one arbitrator. After they have been notified of their panel selection, the two (2) arbitrators will agree on a third arbitrator from the list of ten (10), who will be the chair of the panel, and the panel will be final. The decision of the majority of the arbitrators will be the panel's decision. The arbitrators will not have the authority to add change, or disregard any provision in these Terms, award incidental, consequential, or punitive damages (including, but not limited to, loss of use, unjust enrichment, and/or lost profits), or exceed the limitation of liability provided for above. The panel's decision will be binding and judgment on the arbitration award may be entered by a court of competent jurisdiction. Arbitration will be the final remedy for any dispute between us arising out of the Agreement, provided, however, that nothing herein shall prevent UL Solutions or UL Solutions Company (as applicable) from seeking a court order such as for injunctive relief (in addition to other remedies) to stop or prevent misuse or misappropriation of its trademarks, confidential or proprietary information, or infringement of its intellectual property, in a court of law. All arbitrations shall be conducted in English.
