Any such arbitration shall be administered by the American Arbitration Association and be conducted in accordance with its Consumer Arbitration Rules (the “Rules”) (provided that, if the American Arbitration Association declines to hear such arbitration for any reason, the arbitration will be administered by another mutually agreeable arbitration service pursuant to its own applicable rules). Contact information for the American Arbitration Association, as well as copies of the Rules and applicable forms, are available at http://www.adr.org .
