The prevailing Party in any such arbitration shall be entitled to an award of reasonable attorneys’ fees and costs of such arbitration. Each Party acknowledges and agrees that it is waiving its right to a jury trial that may be available under California or Federal law. If either Party wishes to revoke such waiver it shall immediately so inform the other Party in writing of such revocation, in which case the other Party may terminate, or continue, the Done-For-You™ Services. BUSINESS UNDERSTANDS AND AGREES THAT, BY ENTERING INTO THIS AGREEMENT, BUSINESS AND RGA ARE EACH WAIVING THE RIGHT TO A TRIAL BY JURY OR TO PARTICIPATE IN A CLASS ACTION AGAIST THE OTHER PARTY.

21.4 No Class Actions.

BUSINESS AND RGA AGREE THAT EACH MAY BRING CLAIMS AGAINST THE OTHER ONLY IN BUSINESS’S OR RGA’S INDIVIDUAL CAPACITY AND NOT AS A PLAINTIFF OR CLASS MEMBER IN ANY PURPORTED CLASS OR REPRESENTATIVE PROCEEDING.
