The decision of the arbitrators shall be in writing with written findings of fact and shall be final and binding on the Parties. Each Party shall bear its own costs relating to the arbitration proceedings irrespective of its outcome. Any claim shall be brought individually on behalf of the person or entity seeking relief, not on behalf of a class or other persons or entities not participating in the arbitration, and shall not be consolidated with the claim of any person who is not asserting a claim arising under or relating to this contract. The arbitrators shall determine whether a given dispute between the Parties is required to be arbitrated subject to this section. This section provides the sole recourse for the settlement of any disputes arising out of, in connection with, or related to this Agreement, except that a Party may seek a preliminary injunction or other injunctive relief in any court of competent jurisdiction in Dallas, Texas if in its reasonable judgment such action is necessary to avoid irreparable harm.
