    1. These Terms, your use of the Service, and any other matter relating to Propel will be governed by the laws of the state of New York, without regard to conflict of laws principles.
    2. These Terms and each of its parts evidence a transaction involving interstate commerce, and the United States Arbitration Act applies in all cases and governs the interpretation and enforcement of the arbitration rules and arbitration proceedings.  Any claims arising out of, relating to, or connected with these Terms must be asserted individually in binding arbitration administered by the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”) in accordance with its Commercial Arbitration Terms and the AAA Supplementary Procedures for Consumer-Related Disputes (including, without limitation, utilizing desk, phone or video conference proceedings where appropriate and permitted to mitigate costs of travel) in New York, New York.  The arbitrator shall not conduct any form of class or collective arbitration nor join or consolidate claims by or for individuals.  The Arbitrator, and not any federal, state, or local court or agency, will have exclusive authority to resolve any dispute relating to the interpretation, applicability, enforceability or formation of these Terms, including, but not limited to, any claim that all or any part of these Terms is void or voidable or a particular claim is subject to arbitration.  Judgment on the award rendered by the Arbitrator may be entered in any court of competent jurisdiction.  There are only two exceptions to this arbitration agreement:
      1. First, if we reasonably believe that you have in any manner violated or threatened to violate these Terms, we may seek injunctive or other appropriate relief in any court of competent jurisdiction. 
      2. Second, any claim of $1,000 or less may, at the option of the claiming party, be resolved in small claims court in New York, New York if the claim and the parties are within the jurisdiction of the small claims court.
    3. BY AGREEING TO THESE TERMS, YOU HEREBY IRREVOCABLY WAIVE ANY RIGHT YOU MAY HAVE TO A COURT TRIAL (OTHER THAN SMALL CLAIMS COURT AS PROVIDED ABOVE) OR TO SERVE AS A REPRESENTATIVE, AS A PRIVATE ATTORNEY GENERAL, OR IN ANY OTHER REPRESENTATIVE CAPACITY, OR TO PARTICIPATE AS A MEMBER OF A CLASS OF CLAIMANTS, IN ANY LAWSUIT, ARBITRATION OR OTHER PROCEEDING FILED AGAINST US AND/OR RELATED THIRD PARTIES. 
    4. REGARDLESS OF ANY STATUTE OR LAW TO THE CONTRARY, ANY CLAIM OR CAUSE OF ACTION ARISING OUT OF OR RELATED TO USE OF THE WEBSITE, SERVICE, OR THE TERMS MUST BE FILED WITHIN ONE (1) YEAR AFTER SUCH CLAIM OR CAUSE OF ACTION ARISES OR IT WILL BE FOREVER BARRED.
  1. MISCELLANEOUS.  
    1. These Terms make up the entire agreement between the parties regarding Propel and supersedes any prior agreements.
    2. Under no circumstances will Propel or its licensors be held liable for any delay or failure in performance resulting directly or indirectly from an event beyond Propel’s reasonable control.
    3. The Service is controlled and offered by Propel from the United States of America. Propel makes no representation that the Service may be used in or complies with the laws of other locations. Use from other locations is at your own risk.  You consent to processing in the United States of America of the data you provide.
    4. If you provide us with your email address, you agree that we may send you emails related to the Service or your Account.  If you do not want to receive general emails related to the Service, you can opt-out by following the instructions in our messages.  You may not opt out of emails relating to the administration of any Service you request.  We will communicate with you by email or by posting notices on the Website.  You agree that all agreements, notices, disclosures and other communications that we provide to you electronically satisfy any legal requirement that such communications be in writing.  If you have a legal requirement to communicate with or give notice to us, you must use the address: Propel Inc, 150 Court Street, 2nd Floor, Brooklyn, NY 11201.
    5. You may not transfer your rights or obligations under these Terms without the prior written consent of Propel.  Propel may freely do so, in whole or in part.  These Terms will be binding upon the successors and permitted assigns of you and Propel.  These Terms do not create any third party beneficiary rights.  These Terms will be interpreted as if equally drafted by Propel and you.  A party’s failure or delay in exercising (in whole or in part) any right, power or privilege under these Terms will not waive its rights to exercise such right, power, or privilege in the future.  If any provision of these Terms is declared invalid or unenforceable, then such provision will be deemed automatically amended to the minimum extent necessary to conform to the requirements for validity, and the remaining provisions of these Terms will remain in full force and effect.
