22. Dispute Resolution Process
22.1 Subject to any law, statute, regulation or other requirement of Singapore, You agree that any Dispute between You and Us, including but not limited to the alleged breach, termination, validity, interpretation, performance or estoppel (“Dispute”) shall be resolved according to the following dispute resolution process:
(i) Upon You or Us receiving written notice of any Dispute, You and We agree to attempt to resolve it promptly by negotiation (the “Negotiation”) between You and We, and/or where applicable, Representatives who have authority to discuss and settle the Dispute, and this process should be completed within thirty (30) calendar days of such notice.
(ii) In the event that the Dispute has not been resolved by Negotiation in accordance with section 22.1(i) above, then You and We agree to proceed to mediation (the “Mediation”) unless a different timeframe for negotiation process is agreed to at the time of Negotiation. A “notice of mediation” shall be served by Us, which shall mean that the Negotiation was not successful and You and We agree to commence the mediation process.
- You and We shall choose and agree on a mediator within fourteen (14) calendar days of receipt of the “notice of mediation”, failing which a mediator shall be appointed by a local mediation service provider in Singapore.
- The Mediation shall be held within forty-five (45) business days of the retention of the mediator and shall occur for at least one (1) full mediation day, before either You or We have the right to withdraw from the Mediation. You and We may agree to continue the Mediation beyond one (1) full day, until a settlement of the Dispute has been reached, or until You or We or the mediator state that there is no further reason to continue with Mediation because of an impasse that cannot be overcome through Mediation. In that event, We will send You a “notice of termination of mediation”.
- You and We agree that We will use all reasonable efforts to complete the Mediation within thirty (30) business days of the first mediation session.
- You and We agree to bear an equal share of the costs of Mediation, unless agreed otherwise.
- This Mediation process shall be confidential based on any further terms that are acceptable to or imposed by the mediator and/or the mediation service provider.
(iii) Any Dispute not resolved through either Negotiation or Mediation in accordance with sections 22.1(i) and (ii) above, shall be referred to and finally resolved by arbitration administered by the Singapore International Arbitration Centre (“SIAC”) in accordance with the Arbitration Rules of the Singapore International Arbitration Centre (“SIAC Rules”) for the time being in force, which rules are deemed to be incorporated by reference in this section 22.1(iii). The seat of arbitration shall be Singapore. The Tribunal shall consist of one (1) arbitrator to be appointed by the President of the SIAC. The language of the arbitration shall be English.
(a) The arbitrators may award costs and/or attorneys’ fees to either You or Us. You and We understand and agree that the outcome of the Arbitration shall be final and binding. You agree to waive all and any rights to other forms of resolution processes (such as court action or administrative proceeding).
22.2 All communications, written, verbal, or in any other form that occur during the Dispute Resolution Process shall be treated as confidential and shall be treated as settlement negotiations for purposes of any applicable rules of evidence. However, any document or information generated prior to the Dispute, that would otherwise be discoverable, would not be subject to confidentiality, even if they are used in the Dispute Resolution Process.
