Any dispute, controversy or claim arising out of or relating to this EULA will be resolved exclusively and finally by arbitration conducted by neutral arbitrators in accordance with the procedures of the arbitration law and related enforcement rules of the country in which Nodeum S.A. was organized. In such cases, the arbitration will be limited solely to the dispute between you and Nodeum. The arbitration, or any portion of it, will not be consolidated with any other arbitration and will not be conducted on a class-wide or class action basis.
The arbitration and the validity of this EULA shall be resolved by arbitration in Belgium. Arbitration shall be in the English language and administered by the Cedires (Center for Alternative Dispute Resolution).
The Decision or Award of the Arbitrator, including any interim orders granted by any court, or such relief awarded by the Arbitrator, may be filed with the clerk or registrar of any court in any country having jurisdiction over the parties or the subject matter hereof as a basis of judgment to be entered upon said Decision or Award.
No party shall have recourse to the courts to settle any dispute or disagreement between the parties arising out of the subject matter of this Agreement (except to obtain interim injunctive relief pending arbitration or as provided herein), without first having submitted the matter to arbitration as herein described, and then only to enforce the Decision or Award rendered as herein set forth.
You understand that, in the absence of this provision, you would have had a right to litigate any such dispute, controversy or claim in a court, including the right to litigate claims on a class-wide or class-action basis, and you expressly and knowingly waives those rights and agrees to resolve any disputes through binding arbitration in accordance with the provisions of this section 17.

Section 18 - Attorneys' fees
In any arbitration, mediation, or other legal action or proceeding to enforce rights or remedies under this EULA, the prevailing party will be entitled to recover, in addition to any other relief to which it may be entitled, costs and reasonable attorneys' fees.

If any provision of this EULA is held by a court of competent jurisdiction to be invalid, illegal, or unenforceable, the remainder of this EULA will remain in full force and effect.
Section 20 - Entire agreement
This EULA sets forth the entire agreement of Nodeum and you with respect to the software and the subject matter hereof and supersedes all prior and contemporaneous understandings and agreements whether written or oral.
