In order to keep hearing costs down, hearings may, at your request, be conducted telephonically or entirely upon submissions. In addition, in the event that you prevail at the hearing, and the amount awarded to you by the arbitrator is greater than AirFox’s last written settlement offer to you, AirFox agrees to pay twice the amount of your reasonable attorney’s fees and costs, and a minimum award of five hundred dollars ($500).

The provisions of the Agreement are severable, and if any portion is adjudged invalid or unenforceable by a court of competent jurisdiction, the remaining portions will remain valid, enforceable and in effect. Any waiver by either party of any term or condition of the Agreement or any breach thereof shall be in writing, executed by the party to be charged, and any such waiver, in any one instance, will not waive such term or condition in any other instance or any subsequent breach thereof. The Agreement is not assignable by you, except by operation of law; AirFox may assign its rights under the Agreement without condition. The Agreement will be binding upon and will inure to the benefit of the parties, their successors and permitted assigns.
