15.1 Definitions: For the purposes of this clause 19:
(a) Complainant means the person who starts the procedure in this Section.
(b) Respondent means the person with whom the Complainant has a dispute.
(c) Mediator means a person filling that role in relation to a dispute between the parties, howsoever that person is appointed.

(i) the nature of the dispute;
(ii) what outcome the Complainant wants; and
(iii) what action the Complainant thinks will settle or resolve the dispute.

15.7 No Class Action Matters
(a) You and We agree that each may bring claims against the other only in Your or Our individual capacity, and not as a plaintiff or class member in any purported class or representative proceeding or as an association. Disputes will be mediated only on an individual basis and will not be joined or consolidated with any other arbitrations or other proceedings that involve any claim or controversy of any other party.
