2. Legalinc Services
Legalinc.com provides an online legal portal to give visitors a general understanding of the law and to provide an automated software solution to individuals who choose to prepare their own legal documents. Customer need not download or even license Legalinc software. Legalinc hosts its software as a backend service for customers when they create their own documents. The Site includes general information on commonly encountered legal issues. The Legalinc Services also include a review of your answers for completeness, spelling, and for internal consistency of names, addresses and the like. At no time do we review your answers for legal sufficiency, draw legal conclusions, provide legal advice, opinions or recommendations about your legal rights, remedies, defenses, options, selection of forms, or strategies, or apply the law to the facts of your particular situation. Legalinc is not a law firm and may not perform services performed by an attorney. Legalinc and its Services are not substitutes for the advice or services of an attorney.
Legalinc strives to keep its legal documents accurate, current and up-to-date. However, because the law changes rapidly, Legalinc cannot guarantee that all of the information on the Site or Applications is completely current. The law is different from jurisdiction to jurisdiction, and may be subject to interpretation by different courts. The law is a personal matter, and no general information or legal tool like the kind Legalinc provides can fit every circumstance. Furthermore, the legal information contained on the Site and Applications is not legal advice and is not guaranteed to be correct, complete or up-to-date. Therefore, if you need legal advice for your specific problem, or if your specific problem is too complex to be addressed by our tools, you should consult a licensed attorney in your area.
From time to time, Legalinc may perform certain attorney access services and introduce our visitors to attorneys through various methods, including but not limited to (i) legal plans, (ii) third party attorney directory listings, and (iii) third party limited scope agreements. At no time is an attorney-client relationship fostered or created with Legalinc through the performance of any such services.
This Site and Applications are not intended to create any attorney-client relationship, and your use of Legalinc does not and will not create an attorney-client relationship between you and Legalinc. Instead, you are and will be representing yourself in any legal matter you undertake through Legalinc’s legal document service.

6. Billing and Payment
Authorization to Charge Your Account
By creating an account and submitting your payment information to Legalinc, you authorize Legalinc to store your payment information and to charge the billing source you have provided for your account according to the Service you selected until your account is terminated.
If you purchase a Subscription Service, you agree to pay all charges to your account made therefor, including but not limited to applicable taxes and fees for the use of additional features not included as part of your Subscription Service. You will be charged in accordance with the billing terms in effect at the time the fee or charge becomes payable. For any Subscription Services you purchase that are charged in full upon purchase, you agree that for each renewal term of such Subscription Service (each a “Renewal Term”), the amount due for the next Renewal Term will be due and immediately payable in full as of the first day of such Renewal Term. For each Subscription Service, your charge remains for each Term no matter if you access the Dashboard or Site, or check any messages on either, during any Term. In other words, EVEN IF YOU DO NOT USE THE SUBSCRIPTION SERVICE OR ACCESS THE DASHBOARD, YOU WILL BE RESPONSIBLE FOR ANY SUBSCRIPTION FEES UNTIL YOU CANCEL YOUR SUBSCRIPTION IN ACCORDANCE WITH THE CANCELLATION OF AUTOMATIC RENEWAL TERMS BELOW.
Payment for the initial term of a Subscription Service (the “Initial Term”) is due at the time of purchase.
If you have not opted for automatic renewal of your Subscription Service, Renewal Terms will be invoiced approximately two months before the start date of such Renewal Terms, with date due set no later than the first day of the Renewal Term (the “Billing Date”). The Billing Date will be based on the date of your original purchase. For example, if your purchase date was June 5th, your Billing Date will be July 5th if you have a monthly Term or the next June 5th if you have an annual Term. If your purchase date is the 29th day of February, your Billing Date for renewals in non leap-years only will fall on the 28th. If you have chosen a monthly Term and your purchase date is on the 29th through 31st day of any month, your Billing Date for renewals in months with fewer days will fall on the last day of the month.
If you have opted for automatic renewal of your Subscription Service, your Subscription Service will renew automatically at the end of the Initial Term and at the end of each Renewal Term thereafter unless and until you give notice of your intention to cancel automatic renewal or terminate your Subscription Service pursuant to this Agreement. If you do not give us notice of either such intention, your credit card will be charged for the Renewal Term of your Subscription Service on your Billing Date. Legalinc may adjust your Billing Date in subsequent Renewal Terms without notice. This will be reflected by a charge to your account on a pro-rated basis according to the number of days that have passed since the Billing Date of your latest renewal charge. Unless otherwise notified in advance by Legalinc pursuant to this Agreement, the renewal charge will be equal to the original purchase price for the Subscription Service.
Legalinc may increase its fees for any Subscription Services effective the first day of a Renewal Term by giving you notice of the new fees at least sixty (60) days before the beginning of the Renewal Term. If you have and do not cancel automatic renewal or terminate your subscription pursuant to the terms below, you will be deemed to have accepted the new fee for that Renewal Term and any subsequent Renewal Terms (unless the fees are increased in the same manner for a subsequent Renewal Term). Reductions in fees become effective on the next Renewal Term without any pro rata for the Term covered under the prior fee schedule.
Notice of Automatic Renewal.
If you have opted for automatic renewal of your Subscription Service, we may send a reminder email to the email address of record for your account before your Billing Date. You acknowledge and agree that this notice is provided as a courtesy only, and we are not obligated or required to provide such notice. You acknowledge and agree that (i) your failure to read, (ii) your inability to receive, or (iii) the failure of Legalinc to send the email does not create any liability on the part of Legalinc or any third-party service provider.
Cancellation of Automatic Renewal.
To cancel the automatic renewal of a Subscription Service, you must notify Legalinc of your intent to cancel by calling our Customer Care Dashboard at (844) 386-0178. Legalinc agrees that when it receives notice of this cancellation under the conditions stated above, no further charges will be billed to your credit card automatically. Instead, invoices for Renewal Terms will be sent approximately two months before the Billing Date of the Renewal Term, with date due set no later than that Billing Date. Note that cancelling automatic renewal for a Subscription Service will not terminate your Subscription Service.
Promotional Trial Subscriptions.
We sometimes offer certain customers free trial or other promotional subscriptions, which are subject to these Terms except as otherwise stated in the promotional offers. At any time before the end of a trial Term, you can cancel your subscription by calling us at (844) 386-0178. AT THE COMPLETION OF A TRIAL TERM, UNLESS YOU CHOOSE TO CANCEL, YOUR SUBSCRIPTION WILL RENEW AUTOMATICALLY AND YOUR CREDIT CARD WILL BE CHARGED TO BEGIN YOUR INITIAL TERM.
7. Registered Agent Services
Third Party Service Providers
You acknowledge and agree that we do or may work with third-party providers and sub-providers (each, a “Registered Agent”) of our choice to provide some or all of the Registered Agent Services. You acknowledge and agree that any such Registered Agent may provide Registered Agent Services to you.
Information to be Provided
You will provide Legalinc with correct and true information which may include, but is not limited to: names, telephone numbers and addresses of each entity’s directors, officers, limited liability company managers, managing members, partners, trustees or persons serving in a similar capacity (or a representative who is a natural person of the foregoing if applicable).
Service of Process
You authorize your Registered Agent to receive service of process, including any notices of legal proceedings, other legal notices, or official government communication (collectively, the “Mail”), on your behalf. If available in your area or under your subscription, you further authorize your Registered Agent to scan and upload the Mail received on your behalf into your account at the Dashboard. From the Dashboard, or by phone or email, you may direct your Registered Agent to perform the following actions in respect of your Mail (and when you so direct your Registered Agent, you authorize it to do so):
- forward to an address you specify;
- forward to another account;
- shred or recycle the envelope and its contents;
- unsubscribe or opt in to mailing lists; or
- perform any other actions that your Registered Agent may offer.
Not a Mailing Address.
Unless otherwise specified in this Agreement, your Registered Agent’s services are limited to the receipt and forwarding of items covered by the respective statute, rule, regulation, or contract, and do not include the provision of a business or mailing address independent of such statute, rule, regulation, or contract. Your Registered Agent has no obligation to forward any items received pursuant to any unauthorized use of your Registered Agent’s address (the “Registered Address”) and neither your Registered Agent nor Legalinc assumes liability to you or any other party for loss of such items. You assume all liability for such losses regardless of whether you had approved or initiated the unauthorized use. Your Registered Agent may seek reimbursement from you for any and all costs incurred in connection with the unauthorized use of the Registered Address. Your Registered Address is for the primary purpose of fulfilling state statutes for “Service of Process” and such address may be used only to receive Mail on your behalf. Unless otherwise specified, the primary business address you list on any filed document needs to reflect the primary business address your company operates from, regardless of what state that address is in.
Representation of Registered Address.
You agree not to represent or misleadingly suggest, whether orally, in writing, photographically, or otherwise, that the Registered Address is your place of business, your location of operations or business records, or is a physical address at which third parties can find you. You may not list the Registered Address in your company’s public media, including business cards, brochures, websites, or emails.
You acknowledge that your Registered Agent delivers mail to users; it does not warrant that mail will never be misdelivered. You acknowledge that in such cases neither Legalinc nor your Registered Agent is liable to the intended recipient. Your Registered Agent will make its best efforts to notify both the intended recipient and the unintended recipient immediately on discovery of the error and seek immediate retrieval of the item from the unintended recipient.
If you refuse or fail to accept Mail forwarded to you from your Registered Agent pursuant to this Agreement, you will bear any costs of return shipping and re-induction of the Mail. At the request of Legalinc or your Registered Agent, you must sign for or otherwise acknowledge your acceptance of all Mail sent to you by your Registered Agent.
Customer Responsibility to Provide Accurate and Updated Information.
It is your responsibility to contact Legalinc with changes to your contact information and business status (such as dissolved or inactive) within 60 days of the change. Failure to do so may result in the termination of your services. You acknowledge that neither Legalinc nor your Registered Agent is liable to you for damages resulting from your failure to update or provide accurate information to Legalinc.
Authorized Officer or Representative.
You agree that upon placing an order with Legalinc to act as your registered agent, You, on behalf of your entity, appoint Legalinc as an authorized representative and/or signer under the laws of your entity’s state of formation, and grant Legalinc a limited power of attorney, solely for the purposes of appointing or changing your Registered Agent to Legalinc or back to you should you so request it.
8. Termination of Usage
Legalinc may terminate your use of all or part of the Services at any time in its sole discretion; provided, however, that, as your sole remedy, we will refund to you any prepaid fees actually paid specifically related to that Subscription Service or part thereof.
If your Registered Agent Service is terminated for any reason stated above, Legalinc reserves the right to resign, with proper notice if required by state law, as your Registered Agent. Reasons for termination and resignation may include (but are not limited to): 1) your failure to provide accurate, complete, and current information as requested or required by Legalinc or your Registered Agent, 2) the inability to locate you after reasonable and diligent efforts are made, 3) your failure to pay, or 4) suspected illegal activity.
Your right to use a Subscription Service is subject to any limits established by Legalinc or by your credit card issuer. If payment cannot be charged to your credit card or your charge is returned for any reason, including charge back, Legalinc reserves the right, in its sole and absolute discretion, to suspend or terminate your access and account, thereby terminating this Agreement and all obligations of Legalinc hereunder. If a charge made to your credit card is declined, Legalinc may suspend your access to such Subscription Service and make up to five (5) attempts to bill that card over a Sixty (60) day period.
If you wish to reactivate your account after such suspension or termination, there will be no setup or reactivation fees; provided, however, accounts terminated for non-payment will be reactivated only on receipt of the full amount past due and a written request to reinstate the account.
If you make a cancellation request within Sixty (60) days of the date on which you ordered your Subscription Service (the “Cancellation Period”), Legalinc will refund the full amount charged for such Subscription Service. At the end of the Cancellation Period, you may cancel your Subscription Service by calling our Customer Care Dashboard at (844) 386-0178. After such cancellation, your Subscription Service will remain active until the end of then-applicable Term.
If you are using a free trial to access Subscription Services, you can cancel at any time before the end of your trial Term by calling us at (844) 386-0178. IF YOU DO NOT CANCEL BEFORE THE END OF YOUR TRIAL TERM, YOUR SUBSCRIPTION WILL RENEW AUTOMATICALLY AND YOUR CREDIT CARD WILL BE CHARGED TO BEGIN YOUR INITIAL TERM. After such cancellation, your Subscription Service will remain active until the end of then-applicable Term.
Services after Termination.
After termination of your Subscription Service, either by you or by Legalinc:
You will not be able to access the Subscription Service offerings in the Dashboard; provided, however, that any access rights to the Dashboard granted you through a separate channel (e.g., through another Subscription Service or your status as an entity formed by Legalinc) will remain in full force and effect unless and until separately terminated or cancelled.
Legalinc or your Registered Agent will ship any Mail (via lowest-cost carrier) to you until the end of the then-current Term.
Your Obligations on Termination.
After termination and the end of the then-applicable Term, you agree that:
You will no longer incur charges in respect of your subscription.
If you no longer wish to use the Registered Agent Services in any jurisdiction, you must assign another registered agent in that jurisdiction, and must pay all fees related to changing your agent (including appointment and/or registration fees). In addition, you must notify both Legalinc and your new registered agent that you have properly changed registered agents by the next Billing Date, either by phone or email, and provide both Legalinc and your new registered agent with satisfactory written proof that the Registered Agent is no longer listed as your registered agent. If, however, you no longer wish to use the Registered Agent Services because you are discontinuing your business operations (voluntarily or otherwise), you must properly dissolve, cancel, withdraw, or otherwise properly terminate your entity. You must also notify both Legalinc and your Registered Agent that you have properly discontinued business operations by the next Billing Date, either by phone or email, and provide both Legalinc and your Registered Agent with proof of your dissolution, cancellation, withdrawal, or termination of your entity. If you fail to provide both Legalinc and your Registered Agent with satisfactory written proof of your resignation of the Registered Agent as your registered agent or of your discontinuation of business operations, you will continue to incur charges for Registered Agent Services until such proof is provided.
Any Mail that your Registered Agent receives on your behalf as your registered agent will be marked “Return to Sender” if it is first class mail or destroyed if it is not. You waive and release your Registered Agent from compliance with any obligation to forward or re-mail Mail received after your subscription has been terminated and specifically agree that your Registered Agent has no obligation to forward or re-mail Mail to you except as expressly stated in this Agreement. You agree to hold Legalinc, your Registered Agent and the affiliates of each harmless from any claim to the contrary.
You acknowledge that you have sole responsibility for notifying senders (including all government agencies) of a registered agent address other than your Registered Address.
In the event this Agreement is terminated (other than by reason of your breach), Legalinc will make available to you a file of your Dashboard content (“Customer Data”) within 60 days of termination if you so request at that time. You agree and acknowledge that Legalinc has no obligation to retain the Customer Data and may delete such Customer Data more than 60 days after termination.

If you fail to comply with these notice requirements, your notification may not be valid. Under the Copyright Act, any person who knowingly materially misrepresents that material is infringing or was removed or disabled by mistake or misidentification may be subject to liability.
In accordance with the Digital Millennium Copyright Act, Legalinc has adopted a policy of, in appropriate circumstances, terminating User accounts that are repeat infringers of the intellectual property rights of others. Legalinc also may terminate User accounts even based on a single infringement.

If a counter-notice is received by the Copyright Agent, the Company may send a copy of the counter-notice to the original complaining party informing that person that it may replace the removed Content or cease disabling it in 10 business days. Unless the copyright owner files an action seeking a court order against the Content provider, member or user, the removed Content may be replaced, or access to it restored, in 10 to 14 business days or more after receipt of the counter-notice, at the Company’s sole discretion.

15. Dispute Resolution and Arbitration
It is Legalinc’s goal that the Services meet your expectations and live up to our promises to you. Most customer concerns can be resolved quickly and to the customer’s satisfaction by calling our Customer Care Center at (844) 386-0178. However, there may be instances when you feel that Legalinc has not fulfilled its obligations or you may have a different type of problem or dispute that needs special attention. In those instances, Legalinc is committed to working with you to reach a reasonable resolution that satisfies you; however, we can only do this if we know about and understand your issue. Therefore, for any problem or dispute that you may have with Legalinc, you acknowledge and agree that you will first give Legalinc an opportunity to resolve your problem or dispute. In order to initiate this dispute resolution process, you must first send us a written description of your problem or dispute within thirty (30) days of the Services being performed by sending an email to: email@example.com or by mail to Legalinc.com, Inc., 5850 Granite Parkway, Suite 215 Plano, TX 75024.
You then agree to negotiate with Legalinc in good faith about your problem or dispute. This should lead to resolution, but if for some reason your problem or dispute is not resolved satisfactorily within sixty (60) days after Legalinc’s receipt of your written description of it, you agree to the further dispute resolution provisions below.
Dispute Resolution by Binding Arbitration
In the unlikely event that the Legalinc Customer Care Center is unable to resolve your complaint to your satisfaction (or if Legalinc has not been able to resolve a dispute it has with you after attempting to do so informally), we each agree to resolve those disputes through binding arbitration or in small claims court rather than in a court of general jurisdiction. Arbitration is less formal than a lawsuit in court. Arbitration uses a neutral arbitrator instead of a judge or jury, allows for more limited discovery than a court does, and is subject to very limited review by courts. Any arbitration under these Terms will take place on an individual basis; class arbitrations and class actions are not permitted. While in some instances, upfront costs to file an arbitration claim may exceed similar costs to bring a case in court, for any non-frivolous claim that does not exceed $75,000, Legalinc will pay all costs of the arbitration. Moreover, in arbitration you may recover attorney’s fees from Legalinc to the same extent or more as you would in court. Under certain circumstances (as explained below), Legalinc will pay you more than the amount of the arbitrator’s award and will pay your attorney (if any) his or her reasonable attorney’s fees if the arbitrator awards you an amount greater than what Legalinc offered you to settle the dispute. You may speak with independent counsel before using this Site or completing any purchase.
- Legalinc and you agree to arbitrate all disputes and claims between us before a single arbitrator. The types of disputes and claims we agree to arbitrate are intended to be broadly interpreted. It applies, without limitation, to:
- claims arising out of or relating to any aspect of the relationship between us, whether based in contract, tort, statute, fraud, misrepresentation, or any other legal theory;
- claims that arose before these or any prior Terms (including, but not limited to, claims relating to advertising);
- 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 these Terms.
- For the purposes of this Arbitration Agreement, references to “Legalinc,” “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 services or products under these Terms or any prior agreements between us. Notwithstanding the foregoing, either party may bring an individual action in small claims court. This arbitration agreement does not preclude your bringing issues to the attention of federal, state, or local agencies. Such agencies can, if the law allows, seek relief against us on your behalf. You agree that, by entering into these Terms, you and Legalinc are each waiving the right to a trial by jury or to participate in a class action. These Terms evidence a transaction or website use in interstate commerce, and thus the Federal Arbitration Act (“FAA”) governs the interpretation and enforcement of this provision. This arbitration provision will survive termination of these Terms.
- A party who intends to seek arbitration must first send, by U.S. certified mail, a written Notice of Dispute (“Notice”) to the other party. A Notice to Legalinc should be addressed to: Notice of Dispute, General Counsel, Legalinc.com, Inc. 5850 Granite Parkway, Suite 215 Plano, TX 75024 (the “Notice Address”). The Notice must (a) describe the nature and basis of the claim or dispute and (b) set forth the specific relief sought (“Demand”). If Legalinc and you do not reach an agreement to resolve the claim within 30 days after the Notice is received, you or Legalinc may commence an arbitration proceeding. During the arbitration, the amount of any settlement offer made by Legalinc or you shall not be disclosed to the arbitrator until after the arbitrator determines the amount, if any, to which you or Legalinc is entitled.
- After Legalinc receives notice at the Notice Address that you have commenced arbitration, it will promptly reimburse you for your payment of the filing fee, unless your claim is for more than $75,000. (Currently, the filing fee for consumer-initiated arbitrations is $200, but this is subject to change by the arbitration provider. If you are unable to pay this fee, Legalinc will pay it directly after receiving a written request at the Notice Address.) The arbitration will be governed by the Consumer Arbitration Rules (the “AAA Rules”) of the American Arbitration Association (the “AAA”), as modified by these Terms, and will be administered by the AAA. The AAA Rules are available online at www.adr.org or by calling the AAA at 1-800-778-7879. (You may obtain information about the arbitration process directed to non-lawyers, including information about providing notice. The arbitrator is bound by these Terms. All issues are for the arbitrator to decide, except that issues relating to the scope, enforceability, and interpretation of the arbitration provision and the scope, enforceability, and interpretation of paragraph (f) are for the court to decide. Unless Legalinc and you agree otherwise, any arbitration hearings will take place in the county (or parish) of your contact address. If your claim is for $10,000 or less, you may choose whether the arbitration will be conducted solely on the basis of documents submitted to the arbitrator, by a telephonic hearing, or by an in-person hearing as established by the AAA Rules. If you choose to proceed either in person or by telephone, we may choose to respond only by telephone or submission. If your claim exceeds $10,000, the AAA Rules will determine whether you have a right to a hearing. The parties agree that in any arbitration of a dispute or claim, neither party will rely for preclusive effect on any award or finding of fact or conclusion of law made in any other arbitration of any dispute or claim to which Legalinc was a party. Except as otherwise provided for herein, Legalinc will pay all AAA filing, administration, and arbitrator fees for any arbitration initiated in accordance with the notice requirements above. 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 (as measured by the standards set forth in Federal Rule of Civil Procedure 11(b)), then the payment of all such fees will be governed by the AAA Rules. In such case, you agree to reimburse Legalinc for all monies previously disbursed by it that are otherwise your obligation to pay under the AAA Rules. In addition, if you initiate an arbitration in which you seek relief valued at more than $75,000 (excluding attorney’s fees and expenses), the payment of these fees will be governed by the AAA rules.
- If, after finding in your favor in any respect on the merits of your claim, the arbitrator issues you an award that is greater than the value of Legalinc’s last written settlement offer made before an arbitrator was selected, then Legalinc will:
- pay you either the amount of the award or $2,000 (“the alternative payment”), whichever is greater; and
- pay your attorney, if any, the amount of attorney’s fees, and reimburse any expenses (including expert witness fees and costs), that your attorney reasonably accrues for investigating, preparing, and pursuing your claim in arbitration (the “attorney’s payment”).
- If Legalinc did not make a written offer to settle the dispute before an arbitrator was selected, you and your attorney will be entitled to receive the alternative payment and the attorney’s fees, respectively, if the arbitrator awards you any relief on the merits. The arbitrator may make rulings and resolve disputes as to the payment and reimbursement of fees, expenses, and the alternative payment and the attorney’s fees at any time during the proceeding and upon request from either party made within 14 days of the arbitrator’s ruling on the merits. In assessing whether an award that includes attorney’s fees or expenses is greater than the value of Legalinc’s last written settlement offer, the arbitrator shall include in his or her calculations only the value of any attorney’s fees or expenses you reasonably incurred in connection with the arbitration proceeding before Legalinc’s settlement offer.
- The right to attorney’s fees and expenses discussed in paragraph (d) supplements any right to attorney’s fees and expenses you may have under applicable law. Thus, if you would be entitled to a larger amount under applicable law, this provision does not preclude the arbitrator from awarding you that amount. However, you may not recover duplicative awards of attorney’s fees or costs. Although under some laws Legalinc may have a right to an award of attorney’s fees and expenses if it prevails in an arbitration proceeding, Legalinc will not seek such an award.
- The arbitrator may award 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 AND LEGALINC AGREE THAT EACH MAY BRING CLAIMS AGAINST THE OTHER ONLY IN YOUR OR ITS INDIVIDUAL CAPACITIES AND NOT AS PLAINTIFFS OR CLASS MEMBERS IN ANY PURPORTED CLASS OR REPRESENTATIVE PROCEEDING OR IN THE CAPACITY OF A PRIVATE ATTORNEY GENERAL. Further, unless both you and Legalinc 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 may award any relief that a court could award that is individualized to the claimant and would not affect other customers. Neither you nor we may seek non-individualized relief that would affect other customers. If a court decides that applicable law precludes enforcement of any of this paragraph’s limitations as to a particular claim for relief, then that claim (and only that claim) must be severed from the arbitration and may be brought in court.
- If the amount in dispute exceeds $75,000 or either party seeks any form of injunctive relief, either party may appeal the award to a three-arbitrator panel administered by AAA by a written notice of appeal within thirty (30) days from the date of entry of the written arbitration award. An award of injunctive relief shall be stayed during any such appeal. The members of the three-arbitrator panel will be selected according to AAA rules. The three-arbitrator panel will issue its decision within one hundred and twenty (120) days of the date of the appealing party’s notice of appeal. The decision of the three-arbitrator panel shall be final and binding, subject to any right of judicial review that exists under the FAA.
- Notwithstanding any provision in the applicable Terms to the contrary, we agree that if we make any future change to this arbitration provision (other than a change to any notice address, website link or telephone number provided herein), that change will not apply to any dispute of which we had written notice on the effective date of the change. Moreover, if we seek to terminate this arbitration provision, any such termination will not be effective until at least thirty (30) days after written notice of such termination is provided to you, and shall not be effective as to disputes which arose prior to the date of termination.

If you do not have such authority or if you do not agree with these Terms, you may not sign up for or use the Services. If after your purchase we find that you do not have authority to bind the entity for which you ordered, you will be personally responsible for the obligations in these Terms and the order you placed, including without limitation, the payment obligations.
