SchoolDay, in its sole discretion, may place a Reserve on a portion of your Payouts in the event that we believe that there is a high level of risk associated with your business. If we place a reserve on your Payouts, we will provide you with notice specifying the terms of the Reserve. The terms may require that a certain percentage of your Payouts are held for a certain period of time, that a fixed amount of your Payouts are withheld from payout to you, or such other restrictions that SchoolDay determines in its sole discretion. SchoolDay may change the terms of the Reserve at any time by providing you with notice of the new terms.
SchoolDay may hold a Reserve as long as it deems necessary, in its sole discretion, to mitigate any risks related to your Transactions. You agree that you will remain liable for all obligations related to your Transactions even after the release of any Reserve. In addition, we may require you to keep your Bank Account available for any open settlements, Chargebacks and other adjustments.

9.10 Governing Law and Agreement to Arbitrate for Schools Domiciled in the United States
This Section 9.10 applies only to schools domiciled in the United States.
PLEASE READ THIS SECTION CAREFULLY. IT AFFECTS YOUR RIGHTS AND WILL IMPACT HOW CLAIMS YOU AND SCHOOLDAY HAVE AGAINST EACH OTHER ARE RESOLVED.
A. Governing Law: You and SchoolDay agree that the laws of the State of Delaware, without regard to principles of conflict of laws, will govern this Agreement and any claim or dispute that has arisen or may arise between the parties, except as otherwise stated in this Agreement.
B. Agreement to Arbitrate: You and SchoolDay agree that any and all disputes or claims that have arisen or may arise between you and SchoolDay shall be resolved exclusively through final and binding arbitration, rather than in court, except that you may assert claims in small claims court, if your claims qualify and so long as the matter remains in such court and advances only on an individual (non-class, non-representative) basis. The Federal Arbitration Act governs the interpretation and enforcement of this provision.
THE PARTIES ALSO AGREE THAT YOU AND SCHOOLDAY MAY BRING CLAIMS AGAINST THE OTHER ONLY ON AN INDIVIDUAL BASIS AND NOT AS A PLAINTIFF OR CLASS MEMBER IN ANY PURPORTED CLASS OR REPRESENTATIVE ACTION OR PROCEEDING. UNLESS BOTH YOU AND SCHOOLDAY AGREE OTHERWISE, THE ARBITRATOR(S) MAY NOT CONSOLIDATE OR JOIN MORE THAN ONE PERSON’S OR PARTY’S CLAIMS AND MAY NOT OTHERWISE PRESIDE OVER ANY FORM OF A CONSOLIDATED, REPRESENTATIVE, OR CLASS PROCEEDING. ALSO, THE ARBITRATOR(S) MAY AWARD RELIEF (INCLUDING MONETARY, INJUNCTIVE, AND DECLARATORY RELIEF) ONLY IN FAVOR OF THE INDIVIDUAL PARTY SEEKING RELIEF AND ONLY TO THE EXTENT NECESSARY TO PROVIDE RELIEF NECESSITATED BY THAT PARTY’S INDIVIDUAL CLAIM(S). ANY RELIEF AWARDED CANNOT AFFECT OTHER SCHOOLDAY SCHOOLS.
The arbitration will be conducted by the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”) under its Commercial Arbitration Rules, as modified by this Agreement to Arbitrate. The AAA’s rules are available at www.adr.org. Payment of all filing, administration, and arbitrator fees will be governed by the AAA’s rules. All issues are for the arbitrator to decide, except that issues relating to arbitrability, or the scope or enforceability of this Agreement to Arbitrate, shall be for a court of competent jurisdiction to decide. If a court decides that any part of this Section 9.10 is invalid or unenforceable, the other parts of this Section 9.10 shall still apply.
The arbitration shall be held in the county in which you reside or at another mutually agreed location. If the value of the relief sought is $10,000 or less, you or SchoolDay may elect to have the arbitration conducted by telephone or based solely on written submissions, which election shall be binding on you and SchoolDay subject to the discretion of the arbitrator(s) to require an in-person hearing, if the circumstances warrant. In cases where an in-person hearing is held, you and/or SchoolDay may attend by telephone, unless required otherwise by the arbitrator(s).
The arbitrator(s) will decide the substance of all claims in accordance with the laws of the State of Delaware, including recognized principles of equity, and will honor all claims of privilege recognized by law. The arbitrator(s) shall not be bound by rulings in prior arbitrations involving different schools, but is/are bound by rulings in prior arbitrations involving the same school to the extent required by applicable law. The arbitration award shall be final and binding and judgment on the award rendered by the arbitrator(s) may be entered in any court having jurisdiction thereof.
