THIRD PARTY AUTHORIZATION AND REPRESENTATIONS

It is your responsibility to ensure that access to your account is provided only to persons you authorize, which can include your employees, officers and other agents (secondary users).  Secondary users can perform all of the same functions and have access to all of the same documents as the primary users on your NEWITY Smart Portal account.  By adding a secondary user to your account, you represent to us that all secondary users have general authority from you and your business or company to give us instructions to perform transactions using our services.  By adding a secondary user to your account, you agree that the user can edit and complete loan applications for you or your business or company, and agree to provide the user access to confidential and critical business documents provided to us by you or another secondary user.

This includes actions by a secondary user’s employees and agents.  You understand that allowing access to and the use of your account could potentially expose you to increased privacy and security risks, including unauthorized account transactions, loss of funds, identity theft, fraud, and unauthorized disclosure or compromise of your account information.

ARBITRATION

BY USING ANY APPLICATION, YOU AGREE TO ARBITRATE ALL CLAIMS BETWEEN YOU AND THE COMPANY (AND ANY ENTITY CALLING ON BEHALF OF THE COMPANY) ON AN INDIVIDUAL BASIS ONLY AND NOT AS A PART OF ANY CLASS.  A “CLAIM” IS ANY CASE, CONTROVERSY, DISPUTE, TORT, DISAGREEMENT, LAWSUIT, LEGAL ACTION, OR CLAIM NOW OR HEREAFTER PENDING BETWEEN YOU AND THE COMPANY, INCLUDING BUT NOT LIMITED TO ANY ALLEGED STATE OR FEDERAL STATUTORY VIOLATION, OR ANY DISPUTE OVER THE INTERPRETATION OF THE TERMS OF APPLICATION OR THE ARBITRABILITY OF ANY CLAIM PURSUANT TO THE TERMS OF APPLICATION.  THIS AGREEMENT TO ARBITRATE GOVERNS ALL PAST, CURRENT AND PROSPECTIVE INTERACTIONS WITH THE COMPANY.  YOU AGREE THAT YOU ARE WAIVING ALL RIGHTS TO: (A) A TRIAL BY JURY; (B) PARTICIPATE IN A CLASS ACTION LAW SUIT OR CLASS ACTION ARBITRATION; AND (C) BRING AN ACTION AGAINST THE COMPANY IN A COURT OF LAW.  YOU MAY INDIVIDUALLY ARBITRATE ANY CLAIM AGAINST THE COMPANY IN ANY JURISDICTION IN THE UNITED STATES.  THE RULES OF THE AMERICAN ARBITRATION ASSOCIATION THEN IN FORCE SHALL GOVERN THE ARBITRATION (provided, however, that these Terms of Application shall control over any inconsistency between the Rules of the American Arbitration Association and these Terms of Application).  The arbitrator shall have authority to interpret these Terms of Application, including but not limited to the authority to decide whether any claim is arbitrable under the Terms of Application and to decide issues related to the scope of arbitration, the rules of arbitration, the arbitrator’s jurisdiction, and the enforceability of these Terms of Application.  You agree that these Terms of Application involves commerce under 9 U.S.C. Sections 1 et seq. and that this Arbitration Clause is governed by federal law, including the Federal Arbitration Act.  You may opt out of this jury trial waiver, class action waiver and agreement to arbitrate as set forth below.  The remainder of these Terms of Application is governed by the laws of the state of Illinois, as provided below.

You can choose to reject the jury trial waiver, class action waiver and agreement to arbitrate contained in these Terms of Application by mailing us a written opt-out notice (“Opt-Out Notice”), which must be postmarked no later than thirty (30) days after the date you accept these Terms of Application for the first time and must be mailed to: NEWITY LLC, Attn: Legal Department, 1123 W Washington Blvd, 3rd Floor, Chicago, IL 60607.  The Opt-Out Notice must contain your name, address, and the user name(s) and email address(es) associated with any Company account and the application to which the opt-out applies, if any. You must sign the Opt-Out Notice for it to be effective. This procedure is the only way you can opt out of the jury trial waiver, class action waiver and agreement to arbitrate. If you opt out of the jury trial waiver, class action waiver and agreement to arbitrate, all other parts of these Terms of Application will continue to apply to you. Opting out of the jury trial waiver, class action waiver and agreement to arbitrate has no effect on any previous, other, or future arbitration agreements that you may have with the Company.
