iii.) The parties agree to treat all aspects of the arbitration as confidential, as provided in the AAA Rules. Before making any disclosure permitted by the Rules, a party shall give written notice to the other party and afford such party a reasonable opportunity to protect its interests. Further, judgment on the arbitrators’ award may be entered in any court having jurisdiction.
iv.) Exceptions to Agreement to Arbitrate. You and TRUCE agree that TRUCE has the right to go directly to court to resolve disputes relating to Your or TRUCE’s intellectual property (e.g., trademarks, trade dress, domain names, trade secrets, copyrights or patents) or use thereof.
