LOCATION OF ARBITRATION. Arbitration will take place in New York County, New York. You and BestClass agree that for any Dispute not subject to arbitration (other than claims proceeding in any small claims court), or where no election to arbitrate has been made, the New York state and Federal courts located in New York, New York have exclusive jurisdiction and You and BestClass agree to submit to the personal jurisdiction of such courts.
