There are only two exceptions to this agreement to arbitrate.

Second, any claim of $500 or less may, at the option of the claiming party, be resolved in small claims court in the State of Illinois, if the claim and the parties are within the jurisdiction of the small claims court. For these two exceptions, you agree to submit to the personal jurisdiction of the courts located within the State of Illinois for the purpose of litigating such claims or disputes.
