Sodexo (or its authorized third-party providers) will charge, and you authorize them to charge, the payment method you specify at the time of purchase. If you pay any amounts with a credit card, Sodexo may seek pre-authorization of your credit card account prior to your purchase to verify that the credit card is valid and has credit available for your intended purchase. Also, if you are a campus user and you opt to pay for a purchase with your stored-value card, on certain campuses, (i) Sodexo will charge such purchase to your stored-value card and will charge any applicable fees to the payment method on file with us, and (ii) you agree that Sodexo may be unable to refund a purchase to your stored-value card and may, in its discretion, provide a refund through an alternative method.

Enrolling in Bite Rewards

The Bite Rewards ("Bite Rewards") program allows you to earn and/or receive Offers from Bite. Participation in Bite Rewards is limited to persons at least 13 years old and residing in the United States who download the Bite Mobile App (the “App”) and sign-up for a Bite Rewards account. Bite Rewards accounts are limited to one individual per account. Bite Rewards are valid only at participating Sodexo locations. To sign up for a Bite Rewards account, download the App to your Android or iPhone® device and follow the prompts to access account sign-up and/or sign-in page in the App. You will be required to provide the requested information, including, but not limited to, user name, password, name, and e-mail address. Sodexo may periodically request additional information to help us get to know you better. You agree to provide true and accurate information and to ensure that information provided by you is up-to-date and accurate. Communications with you will be made using contact information most recently provided by you. Sodexo is not responsible for your inability to receive or redeem Offers or other loss arising from your failure to provide and maintain accurate contact information.

Sodexo may send messages from time to time using the contact information provided by you. Such messages may include system updates, Bite Rewards confirmations, administrative announcements, special requests and the like and may be sent via notifications in the App, via e-mail, or communicated to you on a receipt or display at the time of use of your Bite Rewards account. Please read the Privacy Policy carefully to understand how Sodexo collects, uses and discloses information about customers and how to update or change your personal information and how we communicate with you.

Your participation in Bite Rewards is personal and non-transferable. Bite Rewards status and/or individual Bite Rewards may not be purchased, sold, bartered, brokered or otherwise transferred. There are no membership fees associated with Bite Rewards. Offers made via Bite Rewards are purely promotional offers. You agree that no portion of your payment for purchases qualifying for any Offer constitutes consideration paid for any Bite Reward offer.

Earning Bite Rewards

Bite Rewards are issued on a periodic basis. They are referred to as ‘Bite Rewards’ in the App but may appear with different descriptions from time to time. Upon signing up, you will receive notice via your Bite Rewards account of your current Offer. Once you activate a Bite Rewards account, you progress towards an Offer and may be eligible to receive special offers, from time to time. The number, type and frequency of Offers are based on a number of factors, each of which are subject to change, without notice. Those factors may include, without limitation, volume and type of purchases at participating Sodexo locations, number of visits and frequency of visits to participating Sodexo locations, interaction with other Sodexo applications or promotions; or special offers made directly by Sodexo locations or the Bite App which may include ways to progress toward your next Offer via a special promotion. For Offers that are based on purchases, the following types of purchases at a participating Sodexo location qualify: (1) placing and completing a Mobile order for a qualifying purchase through the App, where applicable; (2) or completing a transaction at a participating Sodexo location and scanning the digital code linking to your Bite Rewards account at checkout.

You must use the App, or if placing an online order be signed into your Bite Rewards account, to complete the qualifying purchase or activity in order for that purchase or activity to count towards your progress to the next qualifying Offer. Benefits applied from any single qualifying purchase or activity may only be credited to one (1) Bite Rewards account. The qualifying purchase or activity will be applied to your Bite Rewards account after completion of the qualifying purchase or activity. In certain cases, it may take twenty-four (24) hours or more to be credited. Sodexo shall not be responsible for, or liable to, you, or any person or entity, in any way for any losses, costs or expenses incurred by a delay, error or omission in crediting a qualifying purchase or activity to your Bite Rewards account.

Offers are promotional offers and may have certain restrictions including expiration dates and short, time-limited redemption periods. For free drink or food Offers, some restrictions apply, and items are subject to availability at specific, participating locations. All Offers must be redeemed prior to the stated expiration date to be valid. It is your responsibility to check your Bite Rewards account periodically for Offers and use the Offers prior to the stated expiration date.

Activities which allow progress towards Offers do not count towards and may not be combined with other programs. Activities tied to specific Offers must be fully completed and will only result in one Offer, regardless of the number of times the activity is performed. Partial Bite Rewards will not be issued.  Sodexo reserves the right to change, modify or update these Offers and the qualifying purchases and activities to progress to an Offer from time to time without notice. Sodexo is under no obligation to provide you with any particular number of Offer opportunities or special offers. Sodexo reserves the right to limit enrolment at any time.

Offers

Sodexo and participating Sodexo locations, in their sole and absolute discretion, may periodically offer the opportunity for additional Offers on particular transactions or special offers (“Special Offers”). Special Offers may also be distributed to you via the App or via e-mail or from time to time (based on the information you have in your Bite Rewards account). Special Offers may include periodic promotional offers on food, beverages and merchandise. You must have your App set to receive notifications and/or have opted-in to receive email communications in order to receive promotional and marketing offers. Special Offers may be customized based on your qualifying purchases and preferences. In certain events, Special Offers may require that you have location settings enabled for them to be distributed to your App. Please note that Sodexo and participating Sodexo locations may be unable to send these Special Offers to you if you have turned off your notifications or location settings in the App; if you have elected not to receive email communications from Sodexo; or if you have poor network connectivity. Special Offers may have certain restrictions including expiration dates and short, time-limited redemption periods. Special Offers are personal to you and cannot be shared, copied or transferred. You may be required to present your Bite Rewards account information at the participating Sodexo locations in order to redeem Special Offers. Read each offer carefully for specific details, limitations and restrictions.

To redeem an Offer, you must present the valid Offer in the App at a participating Sodexo location (for in-person transactions). Offers are subject to availability and limitations as may be imposed by Sodexo. Determinations regarding redemption of Offers are subject to the discretion of the participating Sodexo locations.
Once redeemed, the Offer will be indicated as redeemed in your Bite Rewards account. Updates to the status of Offers may take 24-48 hours or more to show up in your account. A list of current Offers is available under your Bite Rewards account. Offers have no cash value and are not redeemable for cash, gift certificates or gift cards. Offers are promotional and do not constitute property of any Bite Rewards account holder. Sodexo reserves the right to limit the redemption of specific Offers and limit the number of Offers available. Sodexo reserves the right to modify the number of qualifying purchases or transactions needed to receive specific Offers.

Cancellation; Termination

You may opt-out of Bite Rewards Offers at any time, for any reason by cancelling your Bite Rewards account. If you cancel your Bite Rewards account, any unredeemed Offers and/or progress towards other Offers will automatically expire and will no longer be available for redemption.
Upon cancellation, your Bite Rewards account shall immediately cease and you may no longer receive Offers or receive Bite Rewards benefits. Sodexo has no obligation to refund you for any unredeemed Offers or benefits following cancellation. If you continue to receive our communications after expressing an opt-out preference, please let us know so that we can investigate the situation.

Right of Termination

Sodexo reserves the right to suspend or terminate, at Sodexo’s sole and absolute discretion, any Bite Rewards account if Sodexo believes that the account holder has abused Bite Rewards privileges, has violated or acted inconsistently with these Terms of Use or applicable law or acted in a manner harmful to our interests. Sodexo further reserves the right to terminate a Bite Rewards account that has been inactive for a period of (1) year or more. You understand and agree that termination by Sodexo of a Bite Rewards account will result in in the cancellation of all Offers associated with that account and the inability to earn and/or redeem further Offers.

Sodexo reserves the right to terminate the Bite Rewards program, or any or all benefits under Bite Rewards, at any time, for any reason without providing electronic or written notice to you. In the event of such termination, at Sodexo’s election, Sodexo may allow you to redeem any outstanding valid and unexpired Offers at a participating Sodexo location until expiration of such Offers.

General Restrictions

Sodexo shall be the sole arbiter in cases of suspected abuse, fraud, or violation of its Terms of Use and any decision it makes relating to termination or disabling of Bite Rewards program (including, but not limited to, cancellation of Offers) shall be final and binding. Should you object to any of these Terms of Use, or any subsequent modifications thereto, or become dissatisfied with Bite Rewards, your sole remedy is to discontinue participation in any Bite Rewards programs and properly cancel your account in the manner provided above.

This Cardholder Agreement (“Agreement”) sets forth the terms and conditions under which the BitePay Card (“Card”) has been issued to you by MetaBank®, National Association. " You" and "your" means the person or persons who have received and are authorized to use the Card as provided for in this Agreement. "We," "us," and " our" mean collectively, MetaBank, a federally-chartered savings bank, member FDIC, and its divisions or assignees, and also includes, unless otherwise indicated, our Program Manager. “ Program Manager” refers to Foundry Payments, who performs certain services related to your Card on MetaBank’s behalf.

Your full fee schedule, otherwise known as the “Long Form,” is attached to and considered part of this Agreement.

1. ABOUT YOUR CARD

Your Card is a prepaid card, which allows you to access funds loaded to your Card account.  You should treat your Card with the same care as you would treat cash.  We encourage you to sign your Card when you receive it. This Card is intended for personal, family, or household use and not intended for business purposes. Your Card account does not constitute a checking or savings account and is not connected in any way to any other account you may have.  The Card is not a gift card, nor is it intended to be used for gifting purposes.  The Card is not a credit card.  You will not receive any interest on the funds in your Card account.  We may close your Card or refuse to process any transaction that we believe may violate the terms of this Agreement or represents illegal or fraudulent activity.  You are responsible for notifying us immediately upon any change to your address, phone number, or email address.  If your address changes to a non-US address, we may cancel your Card and return funds to you in accordance with this Agreement. 

2. VERIFYING YOUR CARD

a. Important information for opening a Card account:

To help the federal government fight the funding of terrorism and money laundering activities, the USA PATRIOT Act requires all financial institutions and their third parties to obtain, verify, and record information that identifies each person who opens a Card. 

b. What this means for you: 

When you request a Card, we will ask for your name, street address, date of birth, and other information that will allow us to identify you.  We may also ask to see a copy of your driver’s license or other documents at any time.  You may be limited in use and features until we have been able to successfully verify your identity.

c. Eligibility and Activation: 

To be eligible to use and activate the Card, you represent and warrant to us that: (i) you are at least 18 years of age; (ii) the personal information that you have provided to us is true, correct and complete; (iii) you have read this Agreement and agree to be bound by and comply with its terms.

3. UNAUTHORIZED TRANSACTIONS

a. Contact in Event of Unauthorized Transfer

If you believe your Card has been lost or stolen, call or write Customer Service IMMEDIATELY at the contact information found at the beginning of this Agreement.

b. Your Liability for Unauthorized Transactions

Tell us AT ONCE if you believe your Card has been lost or stolen, or if you believe that an electronic fund transfer has been made without your permission. Calling Customer Service is the best way of keeping your possible losses down. You could lose all the money in your account. If you tell us within 2 business days after you learn of the loss or theft of your Card, you can lose no more than $50 if someone used your Card without your permission. If you do NOT tell us within 2 business days after you learn of the loss or theft of your Card, and we can prove we could have stopped someone from using your Card without your permission if you had told us, you could lose as much as $500.
Also, if your electronic history shows transfers that you did not make, including those made by your Card or other means, tell us at once. If you do not tell us within 60 days after the earlier of the date you electronically accessed your account (if the unauthorized transfer could be viewed in your electronic history), or the date we sent the FIRST written history on which the unauthorized transfer appeared, you may not get back any money you lost after the 60 days if we can prove that we could have stopped someone from taking the money if you had told us in time. If a good reason (such as a long trip or a hospital stay) kept you from telling us, we will extend the time periods.

c. Your Card may have some additional protections against unauthorized use

Visa Zero Liability policy covers U.S.-issued Visa-branded Cards only and does not apply to ATM transactions, PIN transactions not process by Visa, certain commercial card transactions, or unregistered cards. You must notify us promptly of any unauthorized use. For additional details visit www.visa.com/security.

d. Business Days

For purposes of this Agreement, our business days are Monday through Friday, excluding Federal holidays. Customer Service hours may differ.

4. USING YOUR CARD

a. Accessing and Loading Funds

Each time you use your Card, you authorize us to reduce the value available on your Card by the amount of the transaction and applicable fees.  If you use your Card number without presenting your Card (such as for an internet transaction, a mail order or a telephone purchase), the legal effect will be the same as if you used the Card itself. You may use your Card to purchase or lease goods or services wherever your Card is honored as long as you do not exceed the value available in your Card account.
Your Card can also be used to:

You CANNOT use your Card to: (i) exchange your Card for its cash value; (ii) perform any illegal transactions; (iii) use the bank routing number and account number to make a debit transaction with any item processed as a check (these debits will be declined and your payment will not be processed); or (iv) make business-related transactions. In addition, YOU ARE NOT PERMITTED TO EXCEED THE AVAILABLE AMOUNT IN YOUR CARD ACCOUNT THROUGH AN INDIVIDUAL TRANSACTION OR A SERIES OF TRANSACTIONS.  Nevertheless, if a transaction exceeds the balance of the funds available in your Card account, you will remain fully liable to us for the amount of the transaction and agree to pay us promptly for the negative balance. If your Card has a negative balance, any deposits will be used to offset the negative balance.  We may also use any deposit or balance on another Card you have with us to offset a negative balance on this Card.

Loading the Card account: You may add funds to your Card, called “loading,” by: (i) Automated Clearing House ("ACH") loads or (ii) credit card through the Bite app. See the Limits table below for limitations on amount and frequency for different load methods. The only federal payments that may be loaded to your Card via ACH credit are federal payments for the benefit of the primary cardholder.  If you have questions about this requirement, please call Customer Service. We will reject any loads that exceed the maximum balance allowed on your Card.  There are also maximum load restrictions we may place on your Card when aggregated with any other Cards you have.  You agree to present your Card and meet identification requirements to complete load transactions as may be required from time to time.

Split Transactions: If you do not have enough funds available in your Card account, you may be able to instruct the merchant to charge a part of the purchase to the Card and pay the remaining amount with another form of payment.  These are called “split transactions.”  Some merchants do not allow cardholders to split transactions or will only allow you to do a split transaction if you pay the remaining amount in cash.

If you have told usin advance to make regular payments out ofyour Card account, you can stop any of these payments.Call or write to Customer Service with the contact information located at the beginning of this Agreement in time for us to receive your request three business days or more before the payment is scheduled to be made.  If you call, we may also require you to put your request in writing and get it to us within 14 days after you call. 

b. Notice of varying amounts

If these regular payments vary in amount, the person you are paying should tell you, at least 10 days before each payment, when it will be made and how much it will be.

c. Liability for failure to stop payment of preauthorized transfer

If you order us to stopone of these payments three business days ormore before the transfer is scheduled, and wedo not do so, we will be liable for your losses or damages.

d. Our liability for failure to complete transactions

If we do not complete a transaction to or from your Card account on time or in the correct amount according to our Agreement with you, we will be liable for your losses and damages proximately caused by us.  However, there are some exceptions.  We will not be liable, for instance:

  1. If, through no fault of ours, you do not have enough funds available in your Card account to complete the transaction;
  2. If a merchant refuses to accept your Card;
  3. If an ATM where you are making a cash withdrawal does not have enough cash;
  4. If an electronic terminal where you are making a transaction does not operate properly and you knew about the problem when you initiated the transaction; 
  5. If access to your Card has been blocked after you reported your Card or PIN lost or stolen; 
  6. If there is a hold or your funds are subject to legal process or other encumbrance restricting their use;
  7. If we have reason to believe the requested transaction is unauthorized;
  8. If circumstances beyond our control (such as fire, flood or computer or communication failure) prevent the completion of the transaction, despite reasonable precautions that we have taken; or
  9. For any other exception stated in our Agreement with you.

e. ATM Fees

f. Preauthorized Credits

If you have arranged to have direct deposits made to your account at least once every 60 days from the same person or company, the person or company making the deposit should tell you every time they send us the money. You can call Customer Service to find out whether or not the deposit has been made.

g. Authorization Holds

With certain types of purchases (such as those made at restaurants, hotels, or similar purchases), your Card may be “preauthorized” for an amount greater than the transaction amount to cover gratuity or incidental expenses.  Any preauthorization amount will place a “hold” on your available funds until the merchant sends us the final payment amount of your purchase.  Once the final payment amount is received, the preauthorization amount on hold will be removed.  During this time, you will not have access to preauthorized amounts.  If you authorize a transaction and then fail to make a purchase of that item as planned, the approval may result in a hold for that amount of funds.

8. ADDITIONAL TERMS OF THE AGREEMENT

a. Returns and Refunds

If you are entitled to a refund for any reason for goods or services obtained with your Card, the return and refund will be handled by the merchant.  If the merchant credits your Card, the credit may not be immediately available.  While merchant refunds post as soon as they are received, please note that we have no control over when a merchant sends a credit transaction and the refund may not be available for a number of days after the date the refund transaction occurs.  We are not responsible for the quality, safety, legality, or any other aspect of any goods or services you purchase with your Card.

b. Card Replacement and Expiration

If you need to replace your Card for any reason, please contact Customer Service. See Long Form for applicable fees.  Please note that your Card has a “Valid Thru” date on the front of the Card. You may not use the Card after the “Valid Thru” date on the front of your Card.  However, even if the “Valid Thru” date has passed, the available funds on your Card do not expire.  You will not be charged a fee for replacement cards that we send due to expiration of the Card.

c. Authorized Users

If you allow another person to use the Card, you will be responsible under this Agreement for all transactions made by that person, regardless of whether you intended to be responsible for all of them, as well as all associated fees and charges, even if any of those transactions, fees or charges caused your balance to go negative.

You also agree that we or our service providers may contact you with any contact information you provide to us, including cellular and wireless phone numbers, landline numbers, and email addresses.

b. Account Closure

You may close your Card at any time by contacting Customer Service.  Your request for Card closure will not affect any of our rights or your obligations arising under this Agreement prior to the request.  Should your Card account be closed, we will issue you a credit for any unpaid balances, subject to fees as disclosed in the Long Form. We reserve the right to close your Card account should you complete or attempt to complete any of the prohibited actions in this Agreement.

c. Assignability

You may not assign or transfer your Card or your obligations under this Agreement. We may, however, transfer or assign our rights under this Agreement, including any balances in your Card account. If we assign our rights, you will get a notification from us.

d. Legal Process

Regardless of where or how we are served, we will comply with any state or federal legal process, including, without limitation, any writ of attachment, adverse claim, execution, garnishment, tax levy, restraining order, subpoena or warrant we believe to be valid relating to you or your Card. You agree that we will honor legal process that is served personally, by mail, or by facsimile transmission at any of our offices (including locations other than where the funds, records or property sought is held), even if the law requires personal delivery at the office where your Card account records are maintained. You agree that we will have no liability to you for honoring any such legal process.  You also agree that we will have no obligation to assert on your behalf any applicable exemptions to execution or attachment under any applicable state or federal law.  We will enforce a right of security interest against any of your Card accounts in order to reimburse us for our fees and expenses, including attorneys’ fees, court costs and expenses, in complying with legal process.  We may refuse to permit withdrawals or transfers from your account until such legal process is satisfied or dismissed, even if such action results in insufficient funds to satisfy an obligation you may have incurred.  We may deduct such expenses from your Card account or any other account you may have with us without prior notice to you, or we may bill you directly for such expenses and fees.  You agree to release and indemnify, defend and hold us harmless from all actions, claims, liabilities, losses, costs and damages including, without limitation, attorneys’ fees, associated with our compliance with any legal process.  When we receive an order instructing us to restrict access to funds in a Card account, we may remove the funds from the account and maintain them separately.

e. Other Terms

You will be notified of any change to this Agreement in the manner required by applicable law prior to the effective date of the change.  However, if the change is made for security purposes, we can implement such change without prior notice. We do not waive our rights by delaying or failing to exercise them at any time (for example, assessing a fee less than described, or not all, for any reason does not waive our right to begin charging the fee as set forth in this Agreement without notice).  If any provision of this Agreement is determined to be invalid or unenforceable under any rule, law, or regulation of any governmental agency, local, state, or federal, the validity or enforceability of any other provision of this Agreement will not be affected.  This Agreement will be governed by the law of the state of South Dakota except to the extent governed by federal law.  Should your Card have a remaining balance after a certain period of inactivity, we may be required to remit the remaining funds to the appropriate state agency.

10. JURY TRIAL WAIVER

YOU AND WE ACKNOWLEDGE THAT THE RIGHT TO TRIAL BY JURY IS A CONSTITUTIONAL RIGHT BUT MAY BE WAIVED IN CERTAIN CIRCUMSTANCES.  TO THE EXTENT PERMITTED BY LAW, YOU AND WE KNOWINGLY AND VOLUNTARILY WAIVE ANY RIGHT TO TRIAL BY JURY IN THE EVENT OF LITIGATION ARISING OUT OF OR RELATED TO THIS AGREEMENT.  THIS JURY TRIAL WAIVER WILL NOT AFFECT OR BE INTERPRETED AS MODIFYING IN ANY FASHION THE ARBITRATION CLAUSE SET FORTH IN THE FOLLOWING SECTION, WHICH CONTAINS ITS OWN JURY TRIAL WAIVER.

11. ARBITRATION CLAUSE

We have put this Arbitration Clause in question and answer form to make it easier to follow. However, this Arbitration Clause is part of this Agreement and is legally binding. For purposes of this section, our “Notice Address” is: MetaBank, National Association, Attn: Customer Service, 5501 S Broadband Ln, Sioux Falls, SD 57108.

Background and Scope.

Question

Short Answer

Further Detail

What is arbitration?

An alternative to court

In arbitration, a third party arbitrator (“Arbitrator”) solves Disputes in an informal hearing.

Is it different from court and jury trials?

Yes

The hearing is private. There is no jury. It is usually less formal, faster and less expensive than a lawsuit. Pre-hearing fact finding is limited. Appeals are limited. Courts rarely overturn arbitration awards.

Can you opt-out of this Arbitration Clause?

Yes, within 60 days

If you do not want this Arbitration Clause to apply, you must send us a signed notice within 60 calendar days after you purchase the Card. You must send the notice in writing (and not electronically) to our Notice Address. Provide your name, address and Card number. State that you “opt out” of the Arbitration Clause.

What is this Arbitration Clause about?

The parties' agreement to arbitrate Disputes

Unless prohibited by applicable law and unless you opt out, you and we agree that you or we may elect to arbitrate or require arbitration of any "Dispute" as defined below.

Who does the Arbitration Clause cover?

You, us and certain "Related Parties"

This Arbitration Clause governs you and us. It also covers certain "Related Parties": (1) our parents, subsidiaries and affiliates; (2) our employees, directors, officers, shareholders, members and representatives; and (3) any person or company that is involved in a Dispute you pursue at the same time you pursue a related Dispute with us.

What Disputes does the Arbitration Clause cover?

All Disputes (except certain Disputes about this Arbitration Clause)

This Arbitration Clause governs all “Disputes” that would usually be decided in court and are between us (or any Related Party) and you. In this Arbitration Clause, the word “Disputes” has the broadest reasonable meaning. It includes all claims even indirectly related to your Card or this Agreement. It includes claims related to the validity in general of this Agreement. However, it does not include disputes about the validity, coverage or scope of this Arbitration Clause or any part of this Arbitration Clause. (This includes a Dispute about the rule against class arbitration.) All such disputes are for a court and not an Arbitrator to decide.

Who handles the arbitration?

Usually AAA or JAMS

Arbitrations are conducted under this Arbitration Clause and the rules of the arbitration administrator in effect when the arbitration is started. However, arbitration rules that conflict with this Arbitration Clause do not apply. The arbitration administrator will be either:

  • The American Arbitration Association ("AAA"), 1633 Broadway, 10th Floor, New York, NY 10019, www.adr.org.
  • JAMS, 620 Eighth Avenue, 34th Floor, New York, NY 10018, www.jamsadr.com
  • Any other company picked by agreement of the parties.

If all the above options are unavailable, a court will pick the administrator. No arbitration may be administered without our consent by any administrator that would permit a class arbitration under this Arbitration Clause. The arbitrator will be selected under the administrator's rules. However, the arbitrator must be a lawyer with at least ten years of experience or a retired judge unless you and we otherwise agree.

Can Disputes be litigated?

Sometimes

Either party may bring a lawsuit if the other party does not demand arbitration. We will not demand arbitration of any lawsuit you bring as an individual action in small-claims court.  However, we may demand arbitration of any appeal of a small-claims decision or any small-claims action brought on a class basis.

Are you giving up any rights?

Yes

For Disputes subject to this Arbitration Clause, you give up your right to:

  1. Have juries decide Disputes.
  2. Have courts, other than small-claims courts, decide Disputes.
  3. Serve as a private attorney general or in a representative capacity.
  4. Join a Dispute you have with a dispute by other consumers.
  5. Bring or be a class member in a class action or class arbitration.

We also give up the right to a jury trial and to have courts decide Disputes you wish to arbitrate.

Can you or another consumer start a class arbitration?

No

The Arbitrator is not allowed to handle any Dispute on a class or representative basis. All Disputes subject to this Arbitration Clause must be decided in an individual arbitration or an individual small-claims action. This Arbitration Clause will be void if a court rules that the Arbitrator can decide a Dispute on a class basis and the court's ruling is not reversed on appeal.

What law applies?

The Federal Arbitration Act (“FAA”)

This Agreement and the Cards involve interstate commerce. Thus, the FAA governs this Arbitration Clause. The Arbitrator must apply substantive law consistent with the FAA. The Arbitrator must honor statutes of limitation and privilege rights. Punitive damages are governed by the constitutional standards that apply in judicial proceedings.

Will anything I do make this Arbitration Clause ineffective?

No

This Arbitration Clause stays in force even if: (1) you or we end this Agreement; or (2) we transfer or assign our rights under this Agreement.

Process.

What must a party do before starting a lawsuit or arbitration?

Send a written Dispute notice and work to resolve the Dispute

Before starting a lawsuit or arbitration, the complaining party must give the other party written notice of the Dispute. The notice must explain in reasonable detail the nature of the Dispute and any supporting facts. If you are the complaining party, you must send the notice in writing (and not electronically) to our Notice Address. You or an attorney you have personally hired must sign the notice and must provide the Card number and a phone number where you (or your attorney) can be reached. A letter from us to you will serve as our written notice of a Dispute. Once a Dispute notice is sent, the complaining party must give the other party a reasonable opportunity over the next 30 days to resolve the Dispute on an individual basis.

How does an arbitration start?

Mailing a notice

If the parties do not reach an agreement to resolve the Dispute within 30 days after notice of the Dispute is received, the complaining party may commence a lawsuit or an arbitration, subject to the terms of this Arbitration Clause. To start an arbitration, the complaining party picks the administrator and follows the administrator's rules. If one party begins or threatens a lawsuit, the other party can demand arbitration. This demand can be made in court papers. It can be made if a party begins a lawsuit on an individual basis and then tries to pursue a class action. Once an arbitration demand is made, no lawsuit can be brought and any existing lawsuit must stop.

Will any hearing be held nearby?

Yes

The Arbitrator may decide that an in-person hearing is unnecessary and that he or she can resolve a Dispute based on written filings and/or a conference call. However, any in-person arbitration hearing must be held at a place reasonably convenient to you.

What about appeals?

Very limited

Appeal rights under the FAA are very limited. The Arbitrator’s award will be final and binding. Any appropriate court may enter judgment upon the arbitrator's award.

Arbitration Fees and Awards.

Who bears arbitration fees?

Usually, we do.

We will pay all filing, administrative, hearing and Arbitrator fees if you act in good faith, cannot get a waiver of such fees and ask us to pay.

When will we cover your legal fees and costs?

If you win

If you win an arbitration, we will pay the reasonable fees and costs for your attorneys, experts and witnesses. We will also pay these amounts if required under applicable law or the administrator's rules or if payment is required to enforce this Arbitration Clause. The Arbitrator shall not limit his or her award of these amounts because your Dispute is for a small amount.

Will you ever owe us for arbitration or attorneys' fees?

Only for bad faith

The Arbitrator can require you to pay our fees if (and only if): (1) the Arbitrator finds that you have acted in bad faith (as measured by the standards set forth in Federal Rule of Civil Procedure 11(b)); and (2) this power does not make this Arbitration Clause invalid.

Can an award be explained?

Yes

A party may request details from the Arbitrator, within 14 days of the ruling.  Upon such request, the Arbitrator will explain the ruling in writing.
