3. Terms Applicable For Purchases on the Website
A. Generally. To purchase any goods and/or services on our Website, you must be at least eighteen (18) years of age or the applicable age of majority in your jurisdiction of residence. Prior to the purchase of any goods or services on our Website, you must provide us with a valid credit card number and associated payment information including all of the following: (i) your name as it appears on the card, (ii) your credit card number, (iii) the credit card type, (iv) the date of expiration; and (v) any activation numbers or codes needed to charge your card. By submitting that information to us, you hereby agree that you authorize us to charge your card at our convenience but within thirty (30) days of credit card authorization. All sales of products and services are subject to the terms and conditions within each insurance policy. For each product or service that you order on the Website, you agree to pay the price applicable (including any sales taxes, surcharges and any delivery fees for the delivery service you select) as of the time you submitted the order. We will automatically bill your credit card or other form of payment submitted as part of the order process for such price. Please note that we do not provide price protection or refunds in the event of a price drop or promotional offering.
B. Methods of Payment, Credit Card Terms and Taxes. All payments must be made by Visa, MasterCard, Discover and American Express. We currently do not accept cash, personal or business checks or any other payment form, although in the future we may change this policy. Your card issuer agreement governs your use of your designated card, and you must refer to that agreement and not this Terms and Conditions of Use to determine your rights and liabilities as a cardholder. You hereby represent and warrant that you will not use any credit card or other form of payment unless you have all necessary legal authorization to do so. You agree to pay all fees and charges incurred in connection with your purchases (including any applicable taxes) at the rates in effect when the charges were incurred. Unless you notify us of any discrepancies within sixty (60) days after they first appear on your credit card statement, you agree that they will be deemed accepted by you for all purposes. If we do not receive payment from your credit card issuer or its agent, you agree to pay all amounts due upon demand by us or our agents. Sales taxes, or other taxes, customs, import/export charges, or similar governmental charges are not included in the price of the products. You are responsible for paying any such taxes or charges imposed on your purchases, including, but not limited to, sales, use or value-added taxes. We shall automatically charge and withhold the applicable tax for orders to be delivered to addresses within and any states or localities that it deems is required in accordance with our order policy in effect at the time of purchase.
C. Order Acceptance Policy. Your receipt of an electronic or other form of order confirmation does not signify our acceptance of your order for an insurance policy, nor does it constitute confirmation of our offer to sell a policy to you. We reserve the right at any time after receipt of your order to accept or decline your order for any reason. Your order will be deemed accepted by us upon our issuance of the insurance policy that you have ordered. We may require additional verifications or information before accepting any order. Notwithstanding the foregoing, you agree that, if we cancel all or a portion of your order, your sole and exclusive remedy is either that: (a) we will issue a credit to your credit card account in the amount charged for the cancelled portion (if your credit card has already been charged for the order); or (b) we will not charge your credit card for the cancelled portion of the order. Do not assume that a cancellation or change of an order you have placed with us has been effected until you receive a confirmation from us via email or the Website. As stated above, you will be responsible for, and your credit card or third-party payment account may be charged for, the payment of all fees associated with orders already processed before your cancellation/change request was received.
D. No Responsibility to Sell Mispriced Products or Services. We do our best to describe every item, product or service offered on this Website as accurately as possible. However, we are human, and therefore we do not warrant that specifications or pricing on the Website is complete, accurate, reliable, current, or error-free. In the event of any errors relating to the pricing or specifications of any policy, we shall have the right to refuse or cancel any orders in its sole discretion. If we charged your credit card prior to cancellation, we will issue a credit to your account in the amount of the charge.

13. Governing Law, Jurisdiction, No Class Actions and Waiver of Injunctive Relief.
We hope we never get into any disputes with you in connection with our Website, but just in case, here are some things that would apply:
A. GOVERNING LAW/JURISDICTION. THESE TERMS AND CONDITIONS OF USE AND THE INTERPRETATION OF THESE TERMS AND CONDITIONS OF USE WILL BE GOVERNED BY AND CONSTRUED IN ACCORDANCE WITH THE LAWS OF THE STATE OF NEW YORK WITHOUT REGARD TO ITS CONFLICTS OF LAWS PRINCIPLES AND SPECIFICALLY WILL NOT BE GOVERNED BY THE UNITED NATIONS CONVENTIONS ON CONTRACTS FOR THE INTERNATIONAL SALE OF GOODS, IF OTHERWISE APPLICABLE. ANY CAUSE OF ACTION OR CLAIM YOU MAY HAVE WITH RESPECT TO THIS WEBSITE MUST BE COMMENCED WITHIN ONE (1) YEAR AFTER SUCH CLAIM OR CAUSE OF ACTION ARISES.
B. Arbitration. You and we agree that, to the fullest extent permitted by applicable law, any controversy or claim in connection with or related to the Website or these Terms and Conditions of Use not otherwise resolved between you and Company will be settled solely by binding arbitration by a single neutral arbitrator who is a lawyer or retired judge in accordance with the Commercial Arbitration Rules of the American Arbitration Association ("AAA"), administered in accordance with the AAA's Supplementary Procedures for Consumer-Related Disputes; provided, however, that any issues relating to Company's intellectual property rights, including any such rights Company claims that may be in dispute, shall only be subject to arbitration if Company's President agrees in writing to have such subject to arbitration. For purposes of certainty, any dispute that may arise out of or is related to an insurance policy that we issued to you (regardless of whether the policy was issued through this Website or elsewhere) shall be governed by the dispute resolution process set forth in the policy itself (if any). However, before either of us wants to arbitrate a dispute, we agree to send written notice to the other providing a description of the dispute, and the proposed resolution. We will send notice to you based on the contact information you have provided us and notice to us must be sent to: Arch Insurance Solutions, 8601 La Salle Road, Suite #102, Towson, Maryland 21286 (Attn: Legal Department). Company and you agree to make attempts to resolve any dispute. If the parties cannot resolve the dispute within forty-five (45) days of receipt of the notice to arbitrate, then either of us may submit the dispute to formal arbitration. If a party submits the dispute to formal arbitration hereunder and the AAA is unwilling or unable to set a hearing date within forty-five (45) days of the filing of a "demand for arbitration," then either party can elect to have the arbitration administered by the Judicial Arbitration and Mediation Services Inc. ("JAMS"), using its streamlined Arbitration Rules and Procedures, or any other mutually agreeable arbitration administration service.
In arbitration, there is no judge or jury and review is limited. However, just as a court would, the arbitrator must honor the terms and conditions in these Terms and can award the prevailing party(ies) damages and other relief. You and we each further agree that any such controversy or claim will be arbitrated on an individual basis, and will not be consolidated in any arbitration or other proceedings with any claim or controversy of any other party; provided, however, that if for any reason any court or arbitrator holds that this restriction is unconscionable or unenforceable, then our agreement to arbitrate does not apply and the dispute must be brought in court. If an in-person hearing is required, the arbitration hearing will be conducted in New York, New York (unless prohibited by applicable law) and judgment on the arbitration award may be entered into any court having jurisdiction of it. The parties will pay the administrative and arbitrator's fees in accordance with the applicable arbitration rules; provided, however, if applicable law requires Company to pay a greater portion of such fees in order for the arbitration provision to be enforceable, Company shall have the discretion to elect to pay such fees and proceed to arbitration. You can obtain procedures, rules, and fee information from the AAA at 1-800-778-7879 or www.adr.org and from JAMS at (949) 224-1810 or http://www.jamsadr.com. Discovery shall be permitted pursuant to the applicable arbitration rules. The arbitrator's award will consist of a written statement stating the disposition of each claim, and will provide a statement of the essential findings and conclusions on which the award is based. The award shall be enforceable by any court with jurisdiction over the parties. Notwithstanding the foregoing, either of us may bring qualifying claims in small claims court.
C. No Class Actions. To the fullest extent permitted by applicable law, you agree that any and all disputes, claims and causes of action you may have in connection with or related to the Website or these Terms and Conditions of Use will be resolved individually, without resort to any form of class action.
D. WAIVER OF INJUNCTIVE RELIEF. IF YOU CLAIM THAT YOU HAVE INCURRED ANY LOSS, DAMAGES, OR INJURIES IN CONNECTION WITH YOUR USE OF THE WEBSITE, THEN THE LOSSES, DAMAGES, AND INJURIES WILL NOT BE IRREPARABLE OR SUFFICIENT TO ENTITLE YOU TO AN INJUNCTION OR TO OTHER EQUITABLE RELIEF OF ANY KIND. THIS MEANS THAT, IN CONNECTION WITH YOUR CLAIM, YOU AGREE THAT YOU WILL NOT SEEK, AND THAT YOU WILL NOT BE PERMITTED TO OBTAIN, ANY COURT OR OTHER ACTION THAT MAY INTERFERE WITH OR PREVENT THE DEVELOPMENT OR EXPLOITATION OF ANY WEBSITE, CONTENT, PRODUCT, SERVICE, OR OTHER INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY OWNED, LICENSED, USED OR CONTROLLED BY COMPANY OR A LICENSOR OF COMPANY.
