No arbitration or proceeding can be combined with another without the prior written consent of all parties to the arbitrations or proceedings.

You and CVGE agree that the arbitrator shall have the exclusive authority to resolve any dispute relating to the interpretation, applicability or enforceability of these terms or the formation of these Terms, including the arbitrability of any dispute and any claim that all or any part of these Terms are void or voidable.
- In the event of a dispute, you or CVGE must send to the other party a notice of dispute, which is a written statement that sets forth the name, address, and contact information of the party giving the notice, the facts giving rise to the dispute, and the relief requested. You must send any notice of dispute to Capital Vacations Global Exchange, LLC, Attention: Legal Department, 2024 Corporate Centre Drive, Suite 101, Myrtle Beach, SC 29577. We will send any notice of dispute to you at the contact information we have for you. You and CVGE agree to attempt to resolve a dispute through informal negotiation within sixty (60) days from the date the notice of dispute is sent. After that sixty (60) day period and not before, you or we may commence an arbitration proceeding. You may instead litigate a dispute in small claims court if the dispute meets the requirements to be heard in small claims court, whether or not you negotiated informally first.
- If you and CVGE do not resolve a dispute by informal negotiation or in small claims court, the dispute shall be resolved by binding arbitration before a neutral arbitrator whose decision will be final except for a limited right of appeal under the U.S. Federal Arbitration Act. YOU ARE GIVING UP THE RIGHT TO LITIGATE A DISPUTE IN COURT BEFORE A JUDGE OR JURY. Arbitration will be administered by JAMS Mediation, Arbitration and ADR Services (“JAMS”) in accordance with the JAMS Streamlined Arbitration Rules and Procedures (the “JAMS Rules”). The JAMS Rules and instructions about how to initiate an arbitration are available at www.jamsadr.com or 1-800-352-5267. Arbitration may be conducted in person, through the submission of documents, by phone, or online. Proceedings that cannot be conducted through the submission of documents, by phone, or online, will take place in Horry County, South Carolina; provided, however, that if circumstances prevent you from traveling to Horry County, South Carolina, JAMS may hold an in-person hearing in your hometown area. You and CVGE agree to submit to the exclusive jurisdiction of the federal or state courts located in Horry County, South Carolina in order to compel arbitration, to stay proceedings pending arbitration, or to confirm, modify, vacate, or enter judgment on the award entered by the arbitrator. The arbitrator may award damages to you individually as a court could, including declaratory or injunctive relief, but only to the extent required to satisfy your individual claim.
- In accordance with the JAMS Rules, the party initiating the arbitration (either you or CVGE) is responsible for paying the filing fee. However, if the arbitrator issues you an award of damages and: (a) that award is greater than the amount of our last written settlement offer; or (b) if we did not make a settlement offer, then in addition to paying for any JAMS Case Management Fees and all professional fees for the arbitrator's services, we will reimburse you for the filing fees you incurred.
- Except as provided above with respect to jurisdiction in Horry County, South Carolina, nothing in this arbitration provision shall be construed as consent by CVGE to the jurisdiction of any other court with regard to disputes, claims or controversies unrelated to CVGE products or these Terms.
