You and Soteria agree, subject to clause 9(g) (Protection of Confidentiality and Intellectual Property Rights), to submit any claim, dispute, action, cause of action, issue, or request for relief arising out of or relating to these Terms & Conditions or your use of the Products to binding arbitration rather than by filing any lawsuit in any forum other than set forth in this section.
