Further, unless both you and the The Cole Group agree
otherwise, the arbitrator may not consolidate more than one person's claims, and may not otherwise preside over
any form of a representative or class proceeding.
Nothing in this Arbitration Agreement shall preclude either you or The Cole Group from seeking injunctive
relief in a court of law to protect, for instance, your right to engage in future employment or The Cole Group's
right to protect proprietary, confidential or trade secret information.
If a court of competent jurisdiction or arbitrator determines that the scope and/or operation of this agreement
is too broad to be enforced as written, The Cole Group and you intend that the court or arbitrator should reform
such provision to such narrower scope and/or operation as it determines to be enforceable. If, however, any term
or provision in this agreement is held to be illegal, invalid, or unenforceable under present or future law, and not
subject to reformation, then, unless as otherwise stated herein, (i) such provision shall be fully severable, (ii) this
agreement and the agreements contained within it shall be construed and enforced as if such provision was never
a part of this offer agreement, and (iii) the remaining provisions of this agreement shall remain in full force and
effect and shall not be affected by the illegal, invalid, or unenforceable provision or by its severance.
You understand that no supervisor, manager, co-worker, or representative of The Cole Group, other than the
President, Vice President or CFO has any authority to enter into any agreement contrary to the foregoing, and
that any such agreement must be in writing.
