AETG will respond to the dispute within five (5) business days thereafter. If BUYER is dissatisfied with how AETG proposes to resolve the dispute, BUYER must complete a Dispute Investigation Form (available on www.eagletrade.com) and submit it by e-mail to AETG Customer Support at email@example.com within ten (10) business days from receipt of AETG’s response.

paragraph. Each party shall submit to the jurisdiction of the AAA and shall bear its own cost of arbitration in the event of any dispute arising under paragraph 19 of this Agreement. The parties agree to arbitrate in Miami, Florida in accordance with the procedures and rules of the AAA. Any award rendered in the arbitration proceedings shall be binding and final upon the parties and may be entered as a judgment in any court of competent jurisdiction. 21.
