REMEDIES. The Parties agree that they are limited to the following Remedies.
Termination for Default. If one Party deems the other in default (i.e. that the Party has failed to substantially perform any provision, term, or condition of this Contract), it may terminate the Contract by providing written notice to the defaulting Party. This notice shall describe with sufficient detail the nature of the default. The Party receiving such notice shall have 30 days from the effective date of the notice to cure the default.

The Parties agree that they are limited to these damages, and all consequential damages for a breach of the Agreement are expressly excluded.
Dispute Resolution. The Parties to this agreement are Christians and believe that the Bible commands them to make every effort to live at peace and to resolve disputes with each other in private or within the Christian church (see Matthew 18:15-20; 1 Corinthians 6:1-8). Therefore, the Parties agree that any claim, difference, or dispute arising from or related to this Agreement or its formation shall be settled by biblically-based mediation and, if necessary, legally binding arbitration in accordance with the Rules of Procedure for Christian Conciliation of the Institute for Christian Conciliation. The Party in breach of the Agreement shall be liable for attorney fees and costs to enforce the Agreement.
Process for Dispute Resolution. The alternative dispute resolution process may be initiated by either Party serving the other with a notice setting out brief details of the dispute. The seat of mediation or arbitration shall be Colorado. If the Parties cannot agree on a mediator or arbitrator, each Party shall select one mediator/arbitrator, who shall then make a final selection of a single mediator/arbitrator. Judgment on an arbitration decision may be entered in any court otherwise having jurisdiction.
Sole Dispute Resolution. The Parties to this contract agree that these methods shall be the sole manner of resolving any controversy or claim arising out of this Agreement and expressly waive their right to a jury trial and/or to file a lawsuit against each other in any civil court for such disputes, including any class action proceeding, except to enforce a legally binding arbitration decision or for filing for temporary injunctive relief. The Parties acknowledge that by waiving their legal rights to a jury trial or lawsuit, they are not waiving their right to employ legal counsel at their own expense to assist them in any phase of the process.

Severability. If any provision of this Contract is held to be invalid or unenforceable for any reason, the remaining provisions will continue to be valid and enforceable.
