(c) Either party may commence the arbitration process called for by this Agreement by filing a written demand for arbitration with the applicable arbitration organization and delivering a copy of such demand to the other party to this Agreement in accordance with the notice provision of this Agreement. In no event shall demand for arbitration be made or permitted after the date when the institution of legal or equitable proceedings based on such Dispute would be barred by the applicable statute of limitations. If your principal place of business is in the United States or Canada, the place of arbitration will be Chicago, Illinois, United States. If your principal place of business is in a country in APAC, the place of arbitration will be Singapore. If your principal place of business is outside of the United States, Canada or any country in APAC, the place of arbitration will be Geneva, Switzerland. The arbitration shall be conducted in English. Notwithstanding the foregoing, if your principal place of business is in the Netherlands, you may opt to resolve any Dispute before Dutch courts, provided that you notify Caterpillar of this election within thirty (30) days of Caterpillar notifying you of Caterpillar’s intention to commence arbitration.
(d) You agree that any dispute resolution proceedings will be conducted only on an individual basis and not in a class, consolidated or representative action, and that the parties are waiving the right to a trial by jury. If for any reason a claim proceeds in court rather than in arbitration, each party waives any right to a jury trial.
(e) If the Dispute is for an amount less than US$100,000, the arbitration shall be heard in front of a single arbitrator, and if the Dispute is for an amount of US$100,000 or more, then the Dispute shall be heard by a panel of three (3) arbitrators. If the Dispute is to be heard in front of a single arbitrator, then the parties shall attempt to mutually agree on the identity of the arbitrator, or if no such agreement can be reached within thirty (30) days of the commencement of the arbitration proceedings, the applicable arbitration organization shall appoint such arbitrator in accordance with the Rules. If the Dispute is to be heard in front of a panel of three (3) arbitrators, each party shall nominate one arbitrator from a list of arbitrators provided by the applicable arbitration organization, and the two party-nominated arbitrators shall select the third arbitrator who will serve as chairman. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary herein, either party may seek injunctive relief in a court of competent jurisdiction to prevent irreparable harm from occurring at any time. Each party shall bear its own cost of prosecuting or defending the arbitration (excluding any attorneys’ or other professional fees) and the parties shall split the arbitrators’ fees and the applicable arbitration organization’s administrative costs, regardless of the outcome. The provisions of this Section and judgment upon the award rendered by the arbitrator may be enforced by any court of competent jurisdiction. The arbitrator(s) shall render its decision as soon as reasonably possible after its appointment and must follow the terms of this Agreement.
(f) This agreement to arbitrate shall be specifically enforceable in any court having jurisdiction thereof. Any award issued by the arbitrator pursuant to any arbitration shall be final and binding upon the parties, and judgment may be entered upon in accordance with applicable Laws in any court of competent jurisdiction.
