The parties shall not rely on, or introduce as evidence in any arbitral or judicial proceedings:
views expressed or suggestions made by a party with respect to a possible settlement of the dispute;
admissions made by a party in the course of the mediation proceedings;
documents, notes or other information obtained during the mediation proceedings;
proposals made or views expressed by the mediator; or
the fact that a party had or had not indicated willingness to accept a proposal.
