Any third-party code that may be incorporated in the Mobile Software is covered by the applicable open source or third-party license EULA, if any, authorizing the use of such code. The foregoing license grant is not a sale of the Mobile Software or any copy thereof, and Advance Funds Network or its third-party partners or suppliers retain all right, title, and interest in the Mobile Software (and any copy thereof). Any attempt by you to transfer any of the rights, duties, or obligations hereunder, except as expressly provided for in this Agreement, is void.

The Services are provided on an “as is” and “as available” basis, and to the maximum extent permitted by applicable law, they are provided without warranties of any kind, whether express or implied. This includes, but is not limited to, implied warranties of merchantability, fitness for a particular purpose, or non-infringement.

Please note that while I have updated the text with the requested changes, it’s always a good idea to have a legal professional review and ensure the accuracy and suitability of such clauses for your specific situation.

13. Governing Law

You agree that:

(i) the Service shall be deemed solely based in New York; and

(ii) the Service shall be deemed a passive one that does not give rise to personal jurisdiction over Advance Funds Network, either specific or general, in jurisdictions other than New York. This Agreement shall be governed by the internal substantive laws of the State of New York, without respect to its conflict of laws principles. The parties acknowledge that this Agreement evidences a transaction involving interstate commerce. Notwithstanding the preceding sentences with respect to the substantive law, any arbitration conducted pursuant to the terms of this Agreement shall be governed by the Federal Arbitration Act (9 U.S.C. §§ 1-16). The application of the United Nations Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods is expressly excluded. You agree to submit to the personal jurisdiction of the federal and state courts located in Kings County, New York, for any actions for which Advance Funds Network retains the right to seek injunctive or other equitable relief in a court of competent jurisdiction to prevent the actual or threatened infringement, misappropriation, or violation of Advance Funds Network’s copyrights, trademarks, trade secrets, patents, or other intellectual property or proprietary rights, as set forth in the Arbitration provision below, including any provisional relief required to prevent irreparable harm. You agree that Kings County, New York, is the proper forum for any appeals of an arbitration award or for trial court proceedings in the event that the arbitration provision below is found to be unenforceable.

14. Arbitration

Read this section carefully because it requires the parties to arbitrate their disputes and limits the manner in which you can seek relief from Advance Funds Network. For any dispute with Advance Funds Network, you agree to first contact us at info@afnllc.com and attempt to resolve the dispute with us informally. In the unlikely event that Advance Funds Network has not been able to resolve a dispute it has with you after sixty (60) days, we each agree to resolve any claim, dispute, or controversy (excluding any claims for injunctive or other equitable relief as provided below) arising out of or in connection with or relating to this Agreement, or the breach or alleged breach thereof (collectively, “Claims”), by binding individual arbitration by JAMS, Inc. (“JAMS”), under the Optional Expedited Arbitration Procedures then in effect for JAMS, except as provided herein. JAMS may be contacted at www.jamsadr.com. The arbitration will be conducted in New York County, New York, unless you and Advance Funds Network agree otherwise. If you are using the Service for commercial purposes, each party will be responsible for paying any JAMS filing, administrative, and arbitrator fees in accordance with JAMS rules, and the award rendered by the arbitrator shall include costs of arbitration, reasonable attorneys’ fees, and reasonable costs for expert and other witnesses. If you are an individual using the Service for non-commercial purposes:

(i) JAMS may require you to pay a fee for the initiation of your case, unless you apply for and successfully obtain a fee waiver from JAMS;

(ii) the award rendered by the arbitrator may include your costs of arbitration, your reasonable attorney’s fees, and your reasonable costs for expert and other witnesses; and

(iii) you may sue in a small claims court of competent jurisdiction without first engaging in arbitration, but this does not absolve you of your commitment to engage in the informal dispute resolution process. Any judgment on the award rendered by the arbitrator may be entered in any court of competent jurisdiction. Nothing in this Section shall be deemed as preventing Advance Funds Network from seeking injunctive or other equitable relief from the courts as necessary to prevent the actual or threatened infringement, misappropriation, or violation of our data security, intellectual property rights, or other proprietary rights.

15. Class Action/Jury Trial Waiver

With respect to all persons and entities, regardless of whether they have obtained or used the service for personal, commercial, or other purposes, all claims must be brought in the parties’ individual capacity, and not as a plaintiff or class member in any purported class action, collective action, private attorney general action, or other representative proceeding. This waiver applies to class arbitration, and, unless we agree otherwise, the arbitrator may not consolidate more than one person’s claims. You agree that, by entering into this agreement, you and Advance Funds Network are each waiving the right to a trial by jury or to participate in a class action, collective action, private attorney general action, or other representative proceeding of any kind.

Please note that while I have updated the text with the requested changes, it’s always a good idea to have a legal professional review and ensure the accuracy and suitability of such clauses for your specific situation.

16. Notification Procedures and Changes to the Agreement

Advance Funds Network may provide notifications, whether such notifications are required by law or are for marketing or other business-related purposes, to you via email notice, written or hard copy notice, or through posting of such notice on our website, as determined by Advance Funds Network in our sole discretion. Advance Funds Network reserves the right to determine the form and means of providing notifications to our Users, provided that you may opt out of certain means of notification as described in this Agreement. Advance Funds Network is not responsible for any automatic filtering you or your network provider may apply to email notifications we send to the email address you provide us. Advance Funds Network may, in its sole discretion, modify or update this Agreement from time to time, and so you should review this page periodically. When we change the Agreement in a material manner, we will update the ‘last modified’ date at the bottom of this page. Your continued use of the Service after any such change constitutes your acceptance of the new Terms of Use. If you do not agree to any of these terms or any future Terms of Use, do not use or access (or continue to access) the Service.

17. Severability

This Agreement, together with any amendments and any additional agreements you may enter into with Advance Funds Network in connection with the Service, shall constitute the entire agreement between you and Advance Funds Network concerning the Service. If any provision of this Agreement is deemed invalid by a court of competent jurisdiction, the invalidity of such provision shall not affect the validity of the remaining provisions of this Agreement, which shall remain in full force and effect, except that in the event of unenforceability of the universal Class Action/Jury Trial Waiver, the entire arbitration agreement shall be unenforceable. 

18. No Waiver; No Assignment

No waiver of any term of this Agreement shall be deemed a further or continuing waiver of such term or any other term, and Advance Funds Network’s failure to assert any right or provision under this Agreement shall not constitute a waiver of such right or provision.

This Agreement, and any rights and licenses granted hereunder, may not be transferred or assigned by you, but may be assigned by Advance Funds Network without restriction. Any attempted transfer or assignment in violation hereof shall be null and void.

Important Information About Procedures for Opening a New Account
To help the government fight the funding of terrorism and money laundering activities, Federal law requires all financial institutions to obtain, verify, and record information that identifies each person who opens an account.

What this means for you: When you open an account, we will ask for your name, address, date of birth, and other information that will allow us to identify you. We may also ask to see your driver’s license or other identifying documents.
