THE SITE AND THE SERVICES ARE INTENDED FOR THE EXCLUSIVE USE OF BUSINESSES AND THEIR PERSONNEL, AND NOT INTENDED FOR CONSUMER AND/OR PERSONAL USE. BY USING THE SITE AND/OR SERVICES, YOU REPRESENT AND WARRANT THAT YOU ARE OVER THE AGE OF 18 OR THE AGE OF MAJORITY IN YOUR JURISDICTION.
These Terms state that any disputes between you and the Marketplace Provider that are not otherwise waived pursuant to the terms of this agreement must be resolved in binding arbitration, that you, to the fullest extent allowed by law, waive the right to participate in any class action, and that the law of the state of Massachusetts and the Federal Arbitration Act apply to all interactions between you and your business and the Marketplace Provider.
The Marketplace Provider endeavors to find matches between Merchant Users and banks, credit unions, or other lending sources (each a “Marketplace Participant”). Through its proprietary matching technology, the Marketplace Provider provides potential options for Merchants to identify the business financing category and specific Marketplace Participant(s) that may offer opportunities that may be compatible for that Merchant to prepare for and acquire a business loan or other business financing. Once the Merchant completes the information requested, the Marketplace Provider uses its proprietary technology to identify potential lending sources and products that may meet the Merchant’s described funding needs.

Your continued use of the Site and the Services following the posting of changes will mean that you accept and agree to the changes.

10. Dispute Resolution by Binding Arbitration; Class Action Waiver.
In the interest of resolving disputes between you and the Marketplace Provider in the most expedient and cost-effective manner, you and the Marketplace Provider agree to resolve disputes that are not otherwise waived pursuant to the terms of this Agreement through binding arbitration instead of in courts of general jurisdiction (“Agreement to Arbitrate”). Arbitration is more informal than a lawsuit in court. Arbitration uses a neutral arbitrator instead of a judge or jury, condenses discovery, and is subject to very limited review by courts. Arbitrators can usually award the same damages and relief that a court can award. Any arbitration under these Terms will take place on an individual basis; class arbitrations and class actions are not permitted. You acknowledge and agree that the arbitrator may award relief (including monetary, injunctive, and declaratory relief) only in favor of the individual party seeking relief and only to the extent necessary to provide relief necessitated by that individual party’s claim(s). Any relief awarded cannot affect other users. By accepting these Terms, you acknowledge that the arbitration and class action waiver provisions are material terms and that the Marketplace Provider is relying on your acceptance of terms in entering into this Agreement and providing the Services hereunder.
YOU UNDERSTAND THAT BY ENTERING INTO THIS AGREEMENT, YOU AND THE MARKETPLACE PROVIDER ARE EACH WAIVING THE RIGHT TO A TRIAL BY JURY OR TO PARTICIPATE IN A CLASS ACTION.
a) Claims To Be Resolved by Binding Arbitration. You and the Marketplace Provider agree to arbitrate all disputes and claims between you and the Marketplace Provider that are not otherwise waived pursuant to the terms of this Agreement. This agreement to arbitrate is intended to be broadly interpreted. It includes, but is not limited to: claims arising out of or relating to any aspect of the relationship between you and the Marketplace Provider, whether based in contract, tort, statute, fraud, misrepresentation, or any other legal theory; claims that arose before this or any prior Terms; claims that are currently the subject of purported class action litigation in which you are not a member of a certified class; and claims that may arise after the termination of your Account.
b) Exceptions. Notwithstanding Section 10(a), you and the Marketplace Provider agree that no statement herein shall be deemed to waive, preclude, or otherwise limit either party’s right to file suit in a court of law to address intellectual property infringement claims.
c) Arbitrator. Any arbitration between you and the Marketplace Provider will be by the Commercial Dispute Resolution Procedures (collectively, “AAA Rules”) of the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”), as modified by these Terms, and will be administered by the AAA, and judgment on the award rendered by the arbitrator(s) may be entered in any court having competent jurisdiction. The arbitration will be conducted by a single arbitrator selected pursuant Rule R-12 of the AAA Rules. The AAA Rules and filing forms are available online at www.adr.org, or by calling the AAA at 1-800-778-7879.
d) Notice and Process. A party who intends to seek arbitration must first send to the other, by certified mail, a written Notice of Dispute (“Notice”). The Notice to the Marketplace Provider should be addressed to:
321 Walnut Street, #224
Newton, MA 02460
The Notice must (a) describe the nature and basis of the claim or dispute; and (b) set forth the specific relief sought (“Demand”). If you and the Marketplace Provider do not reach an agreement to resolve the claim within 30 days after the Notice is received, you or the Marketplace Provider may commence an arbitration proceeding.
e) If your claim is for $10,000 or less, the Marketplace Provider may choose whether the arbitration will be conducted solely on the basis of documents submitted to the arbitrator, through a non-appearance based telephonic hearing, or by an in-person hearing as established by the AAA Rules. Any in-person arbitration hearings will take place at a location in Boston, Massachusetts. Regardless of the manner in which the arbitration is conducted, the arbitrator shall issue a reasoned written decision sufficient to explain the essential findings and conclusions on which the decision and award, if any, are based. The arbitrator may make rulings and resolve disputes as to the payment and reimbursement of fees or expenses at any time during the proceeding and upon request from either party made within 14 days of the arbitrator’s ruling on the merits.
f) No Class Actions. Unless both you and the Marketplace Provider agree otherwise, and except as otherwise proscribed by law, 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.
YOU AND THE MARKETPLACE PROVIDER AGREE THAT EACH MAY BRING CLAIMS AGAINST THE OTHER ONLY IN YOUR OR ITS INDIVIDUAL CAPACITY AND NOT AS A PLAINTIFF OR CLASS MEMBER IN ANY PURPORTED CLASS OR REPRESENTATIVE PROCEEDING.
g) Modifications. If the Marketplace Provider makes any future change to this Agreement to Arbitrate (other than a change to the Notice Address), you may reject any such change by sending the Marketplace Provider written notice within 30 days of the change to the Notice Address provided above. You acknowledge and agree that, in the event you reject any future change, your account with the Marketplace Provider shall be immediately terminated and you will arbitrate any dispute between you and the Marketplace Provider in accordance with the language of this provision.
h) Severability and Enforceability. If an arbitrator or court decides that any part of this Section 10 is invalid or unenforceable, the other parts of this Section 10 shall still apply. If the entirety of this Section 10 is found to be unenforceable, then the parties agree that the exclusive jurisdiction and venue described in Section 15(a) shall govern any action arising out of or related to these Terms, and that the remainder of the Terms will continue to apply.
