Arbitration. Any dispute, claim or controversy between you as Employee and PDF Solutions as Employer arising out of or relating to (i) our employment relationship or any of the events or circumstances leading up to your employment with PDF Solutions including, without limitation, your interview process and all negotiations relating to your employment with PDF Solutions and the execution of this agreement; and/or (ii) this agreement or any of its provisions, or the breach, termination, enforcement, interpretation or validity thereof, shall be subject to and resolved exclusively by arbitration before a single arbitrator in accordance with the National Rules for the Resolution of Employment Disputes, also called the "Employment Arbitration Rules and Mediation Procedures"(the "Rules") of the American Arbitration Association (the "AAA"), a copy of which can be found as of the date of this letter at the following internet website: https://www.adr.org/sites/default/files/Commercial%20Rules.pdf. Such Rules of the AAA in effect at the time of your accepting this offer of employment and entering this agreement by that acceptance are to be used, provided that they remain applicable and do not contravene applicable law at the time of any actual arbitration. The single arbitrator will be selected by the AAA pursuant to its Rules. The decision of the arbitrator and any arbitration award shall be final, binding, non-appealable and conclusive on and as to the parties thereto. No recourse may be made to any court except solely to enforce a final award in a court of competent jurisdiction. California law, without regard to conflict of law principles or the choice of law provisions of other states, applies to this agreement to arbitrate, as well as exclusively to all other matters regarding your employment or arising respecting it at any time, except to the extent that the Federal Arbitration Act (FAA) and federal law regarding arbitration is applicable, in which case as to those issues, federal law governs. In this regard, it is acknowledged that the employee's employment is specifically understood to "involve commerce" and that the FAA governs and applies in those circumstances. The provisions of this offer letter, specifically including the agreement to arbitrate, are the product of arm's length negotiations with you and they are agreed to and are entered after due consideration and voluntarily with the intention to be bound by them, including the agreement to arbitrate, and it is agreed and acknowledged that this is an individually negotiated agreement and plan, not an employer-promulgated plan, and that you have been given the opportunity to have this agreement, including the provision for arbitration, reviewed prior to our signing by counsel of your own choice and at your sole expense.
