Neither Company nor its subsidiaries, affiliates, vendors, or licensors (or any of their employees, agents, officers or directors) shall be held liable for any direct, indirect, punitive, incidental, special or consequential damages or other injury, harm, or damage arising out of or in any way connected with the use or the inability to use the Websites or with the delay or inability to use the Websites, or for any information, software, products and services obtained through the Websites, including but not limited to reliance by you on any information obtained through or from the Websites, or that result from mistakes, omissions, interruptions, deletion of files or emails, errors, defects, viruses, worms, trojan horses, trap doors, back doors, easter eggs, time bombs, cancelbots or other code or computer programming routines that contain contaminating or destructive properties or that are intended to damage, detrimentally interfere with, surreptitiously intercept or expropriate any system, data or personal information, delays in operation or transmission, or any failure of performance, whether or not resulting from acts of god, communications failure, theft, destruction or unauthorized access to our records, programs or services, or otherwise arising out of the use of the Websites, whether resulting in whole or in part, from breach of contract, tortious conduct, negligence, strict liability or otherwise, even if Company and/or our affiliates, vendors and/or licensors have been advised of the possibility of damages.

Accordingly, some of the above limitations or exclusions may not apply to you. However, in no event shall the collective total liability of Company and its subsidiaries, affiliates, vendors, or licensors (or any of their employees, agents, or directors) to you for damages, losses, and causes of action (whether in contract, tort, or otherwise) exceed the amount paid by you, if any, in accessing, interacting with, or using the Websites or any Content thereon in the 12 months preceding the event giving rise to the claim.

Electronic Delivery Consent
Mandatory Arbitration Notice, Waiver of Jury Trial, and Waiver of Class Action
To the extent allowed by applicable law, you agree that you or Excelerate Capital may require any claim or controversy arising out of or related to the use of our website, to services provided by us, or to any acts or omissions with us (whether based in contract, tort, statute, fraud, misrepresentation, or any other legal theory), including but not limited to any claim or controversy as to arbitrability (“Dispute”), shall be finally, and exclusively, settled by arbitration on an individual (non-class) basis. However, both parties retain the right to seek relief in a small claims court (or a state court equivalent) for a Dispute within the scope of its jurisdiction so long as the small claims action does not seek to certify a class, combine the claims of multiple persons, recover damages in excess of the limit for a small claim under applicable state law or is not transferred, removed, or appealed from small claims court to any different court. Additionally, if you are a California resident you retain the right to obtain public injunctive relief from any court with proper jurisdiction.
You are aware that there is no judge or jury in arbitration and the ability of a court to review an arbitration aware is extremely limited. Any arbitration of a Dispute will be on an induvial basis, and, therefore, you understand and agree that you are waiving the right to participate as a class representative or class member in a class action lawsuit. As part of this waiver, you agree that you waive the right to act as a private attorney general in an arbitration; that except as otherwise provided in this arbitration agreement, disputes brought by or against you may not be joined or consolidated with disputes brought by or against any other person; and the arbitrator shall have no authority to conduct a class-wide arbitration, private attorney general arbitration or multiple-party arbitration.
You and we agree that your use of the websites and our services involves interstate commerce, and that this arbitration agreement shall be interpreted and enforced in accordance with the Federal Arbitration Act (FAA) set forth in Title 9 of the U.S. Code to the fullest extent possible, notwithstanding any state law to the contrary, regardless of the origin or nature of the Disputes at issue. The arbitrator must follow, to the extent applicable: (1) the substantive law of the state in which we entered into the transaction giving rise to this arbitration agreement; (2) the applicable statutes of limitations; and (3) claims of privilege recognized at law. The arbitrator will not be bound by federal, state or local rules of procedure and evidence or by state or local laws concerning arbitration proceedings.
If either you or we elect to arbitrate a Dispute, it shall be resolved by binding arbitration administered under the applicable rules of the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”). Either you or we may elect to resolve a particular Dispute through arbitration, even if the other party has already initiated litigation in court related to the Dispute, by: (a) making written demand for arbitration upon the other party, (b) initiating arbitration against the other party, or (c) filing a motion to compel arbitration in court.
If this is a consumer-purpose transaction, the applicable rules will be the AAA’s Consumer Arbitration Rules. The applicable AAA rules and other information about arbitrating a claim under AAA, including how to submit a dispute to arbitration, may be obtained by visiting its website at https://www.adr.org/ or by calling 1-800-778-7879. The arbitrator shall be selected pursuant to the AAA rules. Should no AAA rule regarding the selection of an arbitrator be in effect, the parties shall agree on an arbitrator mutually agreeable to both parties, but in the event the parties cannot agree, each shall select one AAA arbitrator and the two selected arbitrators shall select a separate AAA arbitrator to preside over the arbitration. Should the AAA decline to accept a matter submitted for individual (non-class) arbitration under this Agreement, the parties shall jointly select another arbitrator. In the event the parties are unable to agree on a neutral arbitrator, each shall select one arbitrator and the two selected arbitrators shall select a separate arbitrator to preside over the arbitration. However, we will abide by the applicable AAA rules regardless of the forum. Arbitration shall be conducted in the county and state where you accepted this Agreement, you reside, or another reasonably convenient place to you as determined by the arbitrator but only in jurisdictions in the United States and the District of Columbia where Company is licensed to provide mortgage related services, unless applicable laws require another location. Judgment on the award rendered by the arbitrator may be entered in any court having jurisdiction thereof. Except as provided in applicable statutes, the arbitrator’s award is not subject to review by the court and it cannot be appealed. The parties will have the option to request and receive a statement of reasons for the arbitration award.
If you elect to file the arbitration, and this is a consumer-purpose transaction, you will pay the filing fee to the extent required by AAA’s Consumer Arbitration Rules but not to exceed the cost of filing a lawsuit. Any amount above what it would cost you to file a lawsuit, we will pay. All other arbitration fees and expenses shall be allocated to us according to AAA rules. Except for the arbitration fees and expenses, each party shall pay its own costs and fees incurred (including attorneys’ fees), unless the arbitrator allocates them differently in accordance with applicable law. This paragraph applies only if this is a consumer-purpose transaction.
If any part of this arbitration provision is invalid, all other parts of it remain valid. However, if the class action limitation is invalid, then this arbitration provision is invalid in its entirety, provided that the remaining terms and conditions of this Agreement shall remain in full force and effect. This arbitration provision will survive the termination of your use of the website, our services, and any other actions with us.
You may reject this arbitration provision within thirty (30) days of accepting the Agreement by emailing us at [email protected] and including in the subject line “Rejection of Arbitration Provision.”
Without waiving the foregoing arbitration agreement, this Agreement and its provisions shall be construed, interpreted, governed, and applied in accordance with the laws of the State of California, excluding its conflict of law principles.
