12.    Dispute Resolution and Arbitration

             12.1    Generally. In the interest of resolving disputes between you andGI Windowsin the most expedient and cost effective                              manner, and except as described in Section 12.2, you and GI Windowsagree that every dispute arising in connection                              with these Termswill be resolved by binding arbitration. Arbitration is less formal than a lawsuit in court. Arbitration                              uses a neutral arbitrator instead of a judge or jury, may allow for more limited discovery than in court, and can be                                  subject to very limited review by courts. Arbitrators can award the same damages and relief that a court can award.                              This agreement to arbitrate disputes includes all claims arising out of or relating to any aspect of these Terms,                                      whether based in contract, tort, statute, fraud, misrepresentation, or any other legal theory, and regardless of whether                          a claim arises during or after the termination of these Terms. YOU UNDERSTAND AND AGREE THAT, BY ENTERING                                  INTO THESE TERMS, YOU AND GI WINDOWSARE EACH WAIVING THE RIGHT TO A TRIAL BY JURY OR TO PARTICIPATE IN                          A CLASS ACTION.

              12.2    Exceptions. Despite the provisions of Section 12.1, nothing in theseTermswill be deemed to waive, preclude, or                                    otherwise limit the right of either party to: (a) bring an individual action in small claims court; (b) pursue an                                              enforcement action through the applicable federal, state, or local agency if that action is available; (c) seek injunctive                              relief in a court of law in aid of arbitration; or (d) to file suit in a court of law to address an intellectual property                                        infringement claim.

              12.3    Arbitrator. Any arbitration between you and GI Windowswill be settled under the Federal Arbitration Actand                                          administered by the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”) under its Consumer Arbitration Rules (collectively, “AAA                     Rules”) as modified by these Terms. The AAA Rules and filing forms are available online at www.adr.org, by calling                                the AAA at 1-800-778-7879, or by contactingGI Windows. The arbitrator has exclusive authority to resolve any dispute                          relating to the interpretation, applicability, or enforceability of this binding arbitration agreement.

              12.4    Notice of Arbitration; Process. A party who intends to seek arbitration must first send a written notice of the                                    dispute to the other party by certified U.S.Mailor by Federal Express(signature required) or, only if that other party has                          not provided a current physical address, then by electronic mail (“Notice of Arbitration”). GI Windows’s address                                  for Notice of Arbitration is: GI Windows, Inc., 375 West Street, West Bridgewater, MA 02379. The Notice of Arbitration                              must: (a) describe the nature and basis of the claim or dispute; and (b) set forth the specific relief sought. The parties                            will make good faith efforts to resolve the claim directly, but if the parties do not reach an agreement to do so within                              30 days after the Notice of Arbitration is received, you or GI Windowsmay commence an arbitration proceeding. All                                arbitration proceedings between the parties will be confidential unless otherwise agreed by the parties in writing.                                  During the arbitration, the amount of any settlement offer made by you or GI Windowsmust not be disclosed to the                                arbitrator until after the arbitrator makes a final decision and award, if any.

              12.5    No Class Actions. YOU AND GI WINDOWSAGREE THAT EACH MAY BRING CLAIMS AGAINST THE OTHER ONLY IN YOUR                          OR ITS INDIVIDUAL CAPACITY AND NOT AS A PLAINTIFF OR CLASS MEMBER IN ANY PURPORTED CLASS OR                                            REPRESENTATIVE PROCEEDING. Further, unless both you and GI Windowsagree otherwise, the arbitrator may not                                  consolidate more than one person’s claims, and may not otherwise preside over any form of a representative or class                          proceeding.

              12.6    Modifications to this Arbitration Provision. If GI Windowsmakes any future change to this arbitration provision,                              other than a change to GI Windows’saddress for Notice of Arbitration, you may reject the change by sending Us written                          notice within 30 days of the change to GI Windows’saddress for Notice of Arbitration, in which case your account                                    with GI Windowswill be immediately terminated and this arbitration provision, as in effect immediately prior to the                                changes you rejected will survive.

              12.7    Enforceability. If Section 12.5or the entirety of this Section 12is found to be unenforceable, then the entirety of this                                Section 12will be null and void and, in that case, the exclusive jurisdiction and venue described in Section13.2will                                  govern any action arising out of or related to these Terms.

13.    Miscellaneous

              13.1    General Terms. These Terms, together with any privacy policy of GI Windows(the “GI WindowsPrivacy Policy”)                                 and any other agreements expressly incorporated by reference into these Terms, are the entire and exclusive                                         understanding and agreement between you and GI Windowsregarding your use of the Website.

The failure to require                                 performance of any provision will not affect our right to require performance at any other time after that, nor will a                               waiver by Us of any breach or default of these Terms, or any provision of these Terms, be a waiver of any subsequent                           breach or default or a waiver of the provision itself. Use of section headers in theseTermsis for convenience only and                             will not have any impact on the interpretation of any provision. Throughout these Termsthe use of the word                                             “including” means “including but not limited to”. If any part of these Termsis held to be invalid or unenforceable, the                               unenforceable part will be given effect to the greatest extent possible, and the remaining parts will remain in full                                   force and effect.
