12. Binding Arbitration for Dispute Resolution
THIS AFFECTS YOUR RIGHTS. PLEASE READ CAREFULLY.
You agree to attempt in good faith to settle any dispute or claim that has or may arise between Upliftfinancial.com and you, which arises out of or relates in any way to these Terms or your use of Upliftfinancial.com or the Content, including, without limitation, any dispute or claim between you and our affiliated Lenders (each, a "Claim"), by way of consultations between you and us, which consultations will be initiated upon written notice by any party to the other (the "Consultation Notice"). The Consultation Notice must describe the nature and basis of the Claim and set forth the specific relief sought ("Demand"). If such Claim cannot be resolved within thirty (30) days after the Consultation Notice is received, any party to the consultations may initiate an arbitration proceeding upon written notice to the other party in accordance with this Section 11. Any notice to Upliftfinancial.com under this Section 11 should be addressed to: Consultation Notice Inquiry for Uplift Financial C/O Affiliate Media Network, 1 Kendall Square, Suite B2106, Cambridge, MA 02139 ("Notice Address").
You agree to arbitrate all Claims between you and us that cannot be amicably resolved in accordance with the foregoing paragraph. This agreement to arbitrate is intended to be broadly interpreted. It includes, but is not limited to: (a) claims arising out of or relating to any aspect of your relationship with us, whether based in contract, tort, statute, fraud, misrepresentation or any other legal theory; and (b) claims that could be alleged as class action Claims (and you agree to waive the right to participate in a class action in accordance with this Section 11). For the avoidance of doubt, references in this Section 11 to "Upliftfinancial.com," "Lenders," "we", "users", "you," and "us" include our respective subsidiaries, affiliates, agents, employees, predecessors in interest, successors and assigns, as well as all authorized or unauthorized users or beneficiaries of the services, information or Content available through the use of Upliftfinancial.com. This arbitration agreement does not preclude you from bringing an individual action in small claims court or bringing issues to the attention of federal, state, or local agencies, including, for example, the Federal Communications Commission. You acknowledge and agree that, by entering into this arbitration agreement, you and Upliftfinancial.com are each waiving our respective rights to a trial by jury or to participate in a class action. You acknowledge and agree that the Federal Arbitration Act governs the interpretation and enforcement of this provision. You further agree that this arbitration provision shall survive termination of this Agreement. Any arbitration under this Section 11 shall be governed by the American Arbitration Association ("AAA") under its rules and procedures, including the AAA’s Supplementary Procedures for Consumer-Related Disputes (collectively, the "AAA Rules"), as modified by this Agreement (but expressly excluding the Supplementary Rules for Class Arbitration and any other AAA Rules that conflict with the waiver of class arbitration and representative proceedings below), and will be administered by one (1) arbitrator with relevant industry experience appointed in accordance with the AAA Rules. The arbitrator is bound by the terms of this Agreement. All issues are for the arbitrator to decide, including, without limitation, issues relating to the applicability and enforceability of this arbitration agreement. Unless otherwise mutually agreed by the parties to the arbitration, any arbitration hearings under this Section 11 will take place in the county where you are domiciled.
If your Claim is for $5,000 or less, you may choose whether the arbitration will be conducted solely on the basis of documents submitted to the arbitrator, through a telephonic hearing, or by an in-person hearing as established by the AAA Rules. If your Claim exceeds $5,000, the right to a hearing will be determined by the AAA Rules. Except as otherwise provided for in this Section 11, in any arbitration between you and Upliftfinancial.com, all AAA filing, administration and arbitrator fees for any arbitration initiated in accordance with the notice requirements above where Claims for damages do not exceed $10,000 shall be paid, at your written request, by us. Any request for payment of fees by us shall be submitted by mail to the AAA along with your demand for arbitration, and we will make arrangements to pay all necessary fees directly to the AAA. If the value of the relief sought is more than $10,000 and you are able to demonstrate that the costs of arbitration will be prohibitive as compared to the costs of litigation, we will pay as much of the filing, administration and arbitrator fees as the arbitrator deems necessary to prevent the arbitration from being cost-prohibitive. If, however, the arbitrator finds that either the substance of your Claim or the relief sought in the Demand is frivolous or brought for an improper purpose, you agree to reimburse us for all monies previously disbursed that are otherwise your obligation to pay under the AAA Rules.
The arbitrator may award declaratory or injunctive relief only in favor of the individual party seeking relief and only to the extent necessary to provide relief warranted by that party’s individual claim. YOU AGREE THAT YOU MAY BRING CLAIMS AGAINST US ONLY IN YOUR INDIVIDUAL CAPACITY, AND NOT AS A PLAINTIFF OR CLASS MEMBER IN ANY PURPORTED CLASS OR REPRESENTATIVE PROCEEDING, AND THAT THIS AGREEMENT EXPRESSLY PROHIBITS CLASS ARBITRATION BY ANY PARTY. Further, unless the parties to the arbitration 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. The arbitrator shall not be bound by rulings in prior arbitrations involving our other users, but is bound by rulings in prior arbitrations involving the same user to the extent required by applicable law.
With the exception of the provision in the preceding paragraph prohibiting class arbitration or representative proceedings, if an arbitrator or court decides that any part of this Section 11 is invalid or unenforceable, the other parts of this Section 11 shall still apply. In the event that the foregoing prohibition on class arbitration or representative proceedings is deemed invalid or unenforceable, then the entirety of this Section 11 shall be null and void. The remainder of the Terms, including, without limitation, Section 10 (Governing Law), will remain in force.
You may opt-out of this arbitration provision only by written notice to us at the Notice Address within thirty (30) days of your acceptance of this agreement, which notice shall include your name, address, and a clear statement that you do not wish to resolve disputes with us through arbitration.
If we make any change to this arbitration provision (other than a change to the Notice Address) during the term of your relationship with us, that change shall not apply to any Claim against us initiated prior to the effective date of the change. The change shall apply to all other Claims that have arisen or may arise between you and us. We will notify you of changes to this arbitration provision by posting the amended terms on the Site or by email, in each case at least thirty (30) days before the effective date of the changes.
Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in these Terms, Lenders shall be third party beneficiaries of the rights to dispute resolution and arbitration set forth in this Section 11, and each Lender shall have the right to enforce this Section 11 against users as if such Lender were a party to the agreement set forth in this Section 11 in the event of any dispute or claim between you and such Lender based on or relating to any transaction or interaction between you and such Lender that is enabled by or arises in connection with your use of Upliftfinancial.com.
These Terms constitutes the complete agreement between the parties with respect to your use, access, and receipt of services from Upliftfinancial.com and supersede all prior agreements, negotiations and discussions between you and Upliftfinancial.com relating to the same. No third-party beneficiaries of the agreement exist.
