11.4 According to the article 216/1994 Sb., the parties made an agreement that any argument originated in this contractual relationship or in connection with it will be decided in arbitration (“RŘ”) of another arbitrator ad hoc who is Mgr. Tereza Vašíčková, with attestation of MSp ČR nr. 492. The arbitration will take place in Brno, Cejl 91, 602 00. The parties agreed that the fee for RŘ is an arbitration cost and it is a sum of the amount of CZK 5000 and 1 ¼ multiple of court fee which would be in a certain case paid for the arbitration before general courts of the Czech Republic according to the valid legislation and up to the value of the argument up to CZK 1 million. In case that the value is higher, this fee for RŘ will be increased by an appropriate amount of court fee from the exceeding sum. Further, VAT will be added to the total amount of calculated fee for RŘ. Regarding arguments with an international element, the fee for RŘ is increased by a half, in arbitration with more than two participants the fee is increased for 3rd and every other participant by 1/5. According to the way of fee calculation, also a claim made as a mutual proposal or an objection of inclusion in their total amount is paid. Special acts in arbitration can be invoiced according to real costs. Arbitrator’s claim on fee for RŘ does not expire with arbitration stopping, paid fee will not be returned. The parties entrust the arbitrator to negotiate in the Czech language, in an electronic way (on-line), without oral proceedings, decide according to principles of justice, render a decision without foundation and they agree that the arbitrator can entrust 3rd party with administrative, technical and economical activity in terms of RŘ. 3rd party can be mainly Unie pro rozhodčí a mediační řízení ČR, a.s. located at the address where the arbitration will take place and they relieve the arbitrator of discretion to this extent. The parties agreed that the fee for RŘ is an arbitration cost. The parties agreed that the arbitration will proceed on-line; a complaint including attachments is lodged electronically in a mail room on the portal www.e-arbiter.cz. The parties entrusted the arbitrator to create a secured unique court forum with an electronic document (“SF”) for the given argument on the portal e-arbiter. The parties agreed that after SF creation, the entry is possible to make and proofs can be presented only electronically by loading in SF. Entries, calls and decisions are considered for delivered at the moment of their posting in SF and participants´ and arbitrator’s acts do not have to be supplied with a guaranteed electronic signature except for arbitrator’s finding. The parties expressly entrust the arbitrator to decide according to his consideration about the fact that online arbitration will be changed into a written form. The arbitrator delivers the access data for SF to both parties electronically to their e-mail addresses or via postal services; at the same time regulations of OSŘ about the process of deliveries will be seemly used. Lodgment at the court replaces the lodgment at the arbitrator and posting on the official board of the court replaces publishing on www.urmr.cz/vyvesni-deska.

11.5 These Terms shall prevail over contractual terms and conditions of contractual partners.

These Terms shall come into force on 1 September 2012.
