Mediation. All such disputes shall be submitted to mediation in the City of Boston, County of Suffolk, Commonwealth of Massachusetts by a mediator to be selected by agreement of the parties. In the event the parties cannot agree on a mediator within fifteen (15) days of the receipt by either of written notice of the other requesting application of this Section, then each party shall designate a party within fifteen (15) days thereof by written notice to the other. Within fifteen (15) days thereof, the two parties selected shall agree upon and jointly designate a mediator for mediation of the dispute. The mediation shall continue from time to time until the dispute is resolved or the mediator has made a determination in writing that the dispute cannot be resolved through mediation and arbitration is required, provided that mediation may be terminated by either party upon fifteen (15) days notice given at any time on or after the sixty-first (61st) day after notice requesting application of this Section 11.7.
Arbitration. Upon (i) a written determination by the mediator that the dispute cannot be resolved through mediation or termination of the mediation by either party pursuant to Section 11.7, and (ii) written request within ten (10) days thereafter by either party, the dispute shall be submitted to arbitration under the Commercial Arbitration Rules of the American Arbitration Association (the “AAA”) before an arbitrator to be selected by the parties. If the parties cannot agree upon an arbitrator within ten (10) days of one party’s notice to the other party invoking the right to arbitrate, then each party shall designate a party within fifteen (15) days thereof by written notice to the other. Within fifteen (15) days thereafter, the two parties selected shall agree upon and jointly designate an arbitrator of the dispute who has significant experience in arbitrating matters similar to the subject matter disputed under this Agreement. The arbitration shall be conducted in the City of Boston, County of Suffolk, Commonwealth of Massachusetts. The organizational meeting among the arbitrator and the parties shall take place not less than ten (10) and not more than thirty (30) days after the arbitrator has been designated.

The prevailing party in any such arbitration shall be awarded reasonable attorneys’ fees, expert and non-expert witness costs and expenses and other costs and expenses incurred in connection with such arbitration, unless the arbitrator, for good cause, determines otherwise. Costs and fees of the arbitrator shall be borne equally by the parties. The arbitrator’s adjudication shall be final and fully binding upon the parties and enforceable in any court having jurisdiction thereof.
11.8 Injunctive Relief. Licensee agrees and acknowledges and that any breach or threatened breach of this Agreement by Licensee, in whole or in part, that is likely to result in diminution, loss, damage, or other detriment to the value, goodwill, or reputation of Axcient, the Software, Axcient Confidential Information, and/or Axcient Intellectual Property, will result in irreparable and continuing injury to Axcient which is not adequately compensable in monetary damages or at law. Accordingly, Licensee agrees that Axcient shall be entitled to entry of a preliminary and permanent injunction by any court of competent jurisdiction and other equitable relief against such breach or threatened breach, and Licensee hereby waives, and agrees to waive, any requirement that Axcient post bond or other security as a precondition to the obtaining of such injunctive or other equitable relief, whether temporary or permanent.
11.9 No Waiver. The waiver of any provision of this Agreement by either Party, or the failure of either Party to require performance of any provision of this Agreement shall not be construed as a waiver of its rights to insist on performance of that same provision, or any other provision, at some other time. Any waiver, variation or amendment, or modification, of any term or condition of this Agreement shall be effective only if in writing signed by an authorized representative of both Parties hereto. The waiver by either Party of any right created by this Agreement in one or more instances shall not be construed as a further continuing waiver of such right or any other right created by this Agreement.
11.10 Entire Agreement. The English language version of this Agreement shall be the official text hereof, despite translations or interpretation of this Agreement in other languages. This Agreement constitutes the entire agreement between the Parties concerning the subject matter hereof, and expressly supersedes any prior written or oral understandings or agreements between them with respect to the subject matter hereof.
