Notwithstanding this Dispute Resolution Policy, We may as necessary apply to a court of competent jurisdiction in Maricopa County, Arizona to seek injunctive relief relating to the unauthorized use of Our trademarks, trade name, or other intellectual property (the "Marks"), or to otherwise protect its goodwill and reputation associated with the Marks. The institution of any such action for injunctive relief shall not constitute a waiver of the right or obligation of any party to submit any other claim to arbitration.
Judgment upon the arbitral award or decision may be entered by the Maricopa County Superior Court or the United States District Court for the District of Arizona, or application may be made to such court for the judicial confirmation of the award and order of enforcement, as the case may be, if the Arbitrator's award or decision is not complied with within seven (7) days of the issuance of the award or decision.
