If a dispute arises, it is expected that the parties will attempt in good faith to resolve any such dispute in an amicable and mutually satisfactory manner.

In the event such efforts are unsuccessful, and as a prerequisite to filing a claim in arbitration, either party may serve a notice requesting mediation ("Notice of Mediation") on the other party. Notice of Mediation shall be personally delivered or sent by prepaid registered airmail or overnight courier, and shall be effective on receipt thereof by the party to whom it is addressed. Proof of receipt shall be a receipt signed by any officer or responsible official of the party to whom it is addressed. The Notice of Mediation shall be dated, and without prejudice to any right under this Agreement permitting subsequent modifications, shall specify the claims or issues which are to be subjected to mediation, including the requested remedies sought in the mediation. The parties shall attempt, in good faith, to select a mutually acceptable mediator from the Centre for Effective Dispute Resolution International Dispute Resolution 70 Fleet Street London EC4Y 1EU United Kingdom ("CEDR") in London, United Kingdom. If the parties are unable to agree on a mediator within 15 days of service of the Notice of Mediation, the parties shall request that CEDR submit to the parties a list of seven proposed mediators (the "Mediator List"). Within seven days after service of the Mediator List, each party shall submit a letter to CEDR that ranks four mediators on the Mediator List in order of preference and strikes the remaining three names. CEDR shall then select the mediator on the Mediator List with the highest combined ranking. The mediation shall take place in London, United Kingdom within 45 days after the selection of the mediator. The party that serves the Notice of Mediation shall be responsible for the costs of the mediation. The mediation, and any materials, briefs, statements, documents, or information exchanged at or in anticipation of the mediation, shall be kept confidential and shall not be admissible for any purpose in any legal proceeding.

If differences cannot be resolved by mediation as set forth in the paragraph above, the parties shall be governed by and these terms and conditions shall be construed in accordance with English law and the parties hereby submit to the exclusive jurisdiction of the English Courts in respect of any dispute arising herefrom or any other contractual relationship between the parties hereto.

18.     Waiver. No delay or omission by either party hereto to exercise any right or power occurring upon any noncompliance or default by the other party with respect to any of the terms of this Agreement shall impair any such right or power or be construed to be a waiver thereof. The terms and conditions of this Agreement may be waived or amended only in writing and only by the party that is entitled to the benefits of the term(s) or condition(s) being waived or amended. Unless stated otherwise, all remedies provided for in this Agreement shall be cumulative and in addition to and not in lieu of any other remedies available to either party at law, in equity, or otherwise.

19.     Unenforceability. If any provision of this Agreement or any word, phrase, clause, sentence, or other portion thereof should be held to be unenforceable or invalid for any reason, then provided that the essential consideration for entering into this Agreement on the part of any party is not unreasonably impaired, such provision or portion thereof shall be modified or deleted in such manner as to render this Agreement as modified legal and enforceable to the maximum extent permitted under applicable laws.

20.     Authority to Execute. The party signing this Agreement hereby acknowledges, represents and warrants that they are expressly and duly authorized to execute this Agreement and to legally bind said party to this Agreement.

21.     Conflicts.
