THIS ARBITRATION SECTION DOES NOT APPLY IF (1) YOU ARE A MEMBER OF THE ARMED FORCES OR A DEPENDENT OF SUCH A MEMBER COVERED BY THE FEDERAL MILITARY LENDING ACT AND (2) OUR DISPUTE INVOLVES THE EXTENSION OF CONSUMER CREDIT
Certain portions of this Section are deemed to be a “written agreement to arbitrate” pursuant to the Federal Arbitration Act. You and MoneySpot agree that each of the parties intends that this Section satisfies the “writing” requirement of the Federal Arbitration Act. This Section can only be amended by mutual agreement. By accessing and using the Site, you are agreeing to this Arbitration Clause (“Arbitration Agreement”), specially including the following terms:
What is arbitration?
An alternative to court
In arbitration, a third party (“Arbiter”) solves Disputes in a hearing (“hearing”). You, we, and any related third parties agree to waive the right to go to court. Such “parties” waive their right to a jury trial.
Is it different from court and jury trials?
The hearing is private and less formal than court. Arbiters may limit pre-hearing fact finding, called “discovery.” The decision is final. Courts rarely overturn Arbiters.
Who does the Clause cover?
You, Us, and Others
This Clause governs the parties, their heirs, successors, assigns, and third parties related to any Dispute.
Which Disputes are covered?
In this Clause, the word “Disputes” has the broadest possible meaning. This Clause governs all “Disputes” involving the parties. This includes all claims even indirectly related to your application and agreements with us. This includes claims related to information you previously gave us. It includes all past agreements. It includes extensions, renewals, refinancings, or payment plans on any credit we arrange. It includes claims related to collections, privacy, and customer information. It includes claims related to setting aside this Clause. It includes claims about the Clause’s validity and scope. It includes claims about whether to arbitrate.
Are you waiving rights?
You waive your rights to:
Are you waiving class action rights?
COURTS AND ARBITERS WON’T ALLOW CLASS ACTIONS. You waive your rights to be in a class action, as a representative and a member. Only individual arbitration, or small-claims courts, will solve Disputes. You waive your right to have representative claims. Unless reversed on appeal, if a court invalidates this waiver, the Clause will be void.
What law applies?
The Federal Arbitration Act (“FAA”)
This transaction involves interstate commerce, so the FAA governs. If a court finds the FAA doesn’t apply, and the finding can’t be appealed, then your state’s law governs. The Arbiter must apply substantive law consistent with the FAA. The Arbiter must follow statutes of limitation and privilege claims.
Can the parties try to solve Disputes first?
We can try to solve Disputes if you call us at (800) 316-8507. If this doesn’t solve the Dispute, mail us notice, within 14 days of the Dispute date. In your notice, tell us the details and how you want to solve it. We will try to solve the Dispute. If we make a written offer (“Settlement Offer”), you can reject it and arbitrate. If we don’t solve the Dispute, either party may start arbitration. To start arbitration, contact an Arbiter or arbitration group listed below. No party will disclose settlement proposals to the Arbiter during arbitration.
How should you contact us?
Send mail to: MoneySpot Direct LLC, 631 Lucerne Ave, Suite 56, Lake Worth Beach FL 33460. You can call us or use certified mail to confirm receipt.
Can small-claims court solve some Disputes?
Each party has the right to arbitrate, or to go to small-claims court if the small-claims court has the power to hear the Dispute. Arbitration will solve all Disputes that the small-claims court does not have the power to hear. If there is an appeal from small-claims court, or if a Dispute changes so that the small-claims court loses the power to hear it, then the Dispute will only be heard by an Arbiter.
Do other options exist?
Both parties may seek remedies which don’t claim money damages. This includes pre-judgment seizure, injunctions, or equitable relief.
Will this Clause continue to govern?
Yes, unless otherwise agreed
The Clause stays effective, unless the parties sign an agreement stating it doesn’t. The Clause governs if you rescind the transaction. It governs if you default, renew, prepay, or pay. It governs if your contract is discharged through bankruptcy. The Clause remains effective, despite a transaction’s termination, amendment, expiration, or performance.
How does arbitration start?
By mailing a notice
Either party may mail the other a request to arbitrate, even if a lawsuit has been filed. The notice should describe the Dispute and relief sought. The receiving party must mail a response within 20 days. If you mail the demand, you may choose the arbitration group. Or, your demand may state that you want the parties to choose a local Arbiter. If related third parties or we mail the demand, you must respond in 20 days. Your response must choose an arbitration group or propose a local Arbiter. If it doesn’t, we may choose the group.
AAA, JAMS, or an agreed Arbiter
Will the hearing be held nearby?
The Arbiter will order the hearing within 30 miles of your home or where the transaction occurred.
What about appeals?
Appeals are limited.
The Arbiter’s decision will be final. A party may file the Arbiter’s award with the proper court. Arbitration will solve appeals of a small-claims court judgment. A party may appeal under the FAA. If the amount in controversy exceeds $10,000.00, a party may appeal the Arbiter’s finding. Such appeal will be to a three Arbiter panel from the same arbitration group. The appeal will be de novo and solved by majority vote. The appealing party bears appeal costs, despite the outcome.
Will we advance Arbitration Fees?
Yes, but you pay your costs.
We will advance your “Arbitration Fees” if you ask us to. This includes filing, administrative, hearing, and Arbiter’s fees. You pay your attorney fees and other expenses.
Are damages and attorney fees possible?
Yes, if allowed by law.
The Arbiter may award the same damages as a court. Arbiters may award reasonable attorney fees, and expenses, if allowed by law.
Will you pay Arbitration Fees if you win?
If the Arbiter awards you funds, you don’t reimburse us the Arbitration Fees.
Will you ever pay Arbitration Fees?
If the Arbiter doesn’t award you funds, then you must repay the Arbitration Fees. If you must pay Arbitration Fees, the amount won’t exceed state court costs.
What happens if you win?
You could get more than the Arbiter
If an Arbiter’s award to you exceeds our last Settlement Offer, we will pay 3 amounts. We will pay the award, plus 10% of such amount (“bonus payment”). We will pay your attorney the attorney fees conferred, plus 10% of such amount (“attorney premium”). If the Arbiter orders, we will pay reasonable expert witness costs and other costs you incurred (“cost premium”). If we never made a Settlement Offer, we will pay the bonus payment, attorney premium, and any cost premium. If a law allows you more, this Clause won’t prevent such award. We won’t seek attorney fees and expenses.
Can an award be explained?
A party may request details from the Arbiter, within 14 days of the ruling. Upon such request, the Arbiter will explain the ruling in writing.
If you don’t want to arbitrate, can you still get a transaction?
Yes. You can get our services and decide not to arbitrate.
Consider these choices:
Can you opt-out of the Clause?
Yes - within 60 days
Write us within 60 calendar days of signing your agreement to opt-out of the Clause for that agreement. List your name, address, account number and date.
