1. Overview

The Site is a venue where our Members use both our marketplace and our platform for online work. Clients and Talent become Members when they register an account pursuant to the Account Agreement. As Members, they use the Site directory and, job board functions to advertise, locate, introduce themselves to each other, screen and select each other, negotiate Job terms, and enter into Member Contracts between each other. Once two Members enter a Member Contract , they use the Site to collaborate, manage, perform, invoice and pay for their Job.

2. Relationship between Client and Talent

Member Contract

Client and Talent acknowledge and agree that when Talent accepts a Job requested by Client, Client and Talent will be deemed to have entered into a "Member Contract" comprising the following agreements: (1) those Relationship Agreements applicable to their Job as described in the next subsection titled "Relationship Agreements"; (2) the remaining Terms of Service (other than the Relationship Agreements); (3) the Job terms awarded and accepted on the Site, to the extent not inconsistent with the Mandatory Terms(defined below); and (4) any other contractual provisions accepted by both Client and Talent and uploaded to the Site, to the extent not inconsistent with the Mandatory Terms.

Relationship Agreements

The following four parts of the Terms of Service are called "Relationship Agreements": (1) Independent Contractor Services Agreement; (2) Fixed Price Escrow Instructions; (3) Hourly and Miscellaneous Payment Agreement with Escrow Instructions and (4) Payroll Services Agreement.

Independent Contractor Relationships

If a Client and a Talent enter an independent contractor relationship, then the Independent Contractor Services Agreement applies. In addition, Client and Talent in an independent contractor relationship must choose either fixed price or hourly compensation, and that choice determines the agreement that governs their payment mechanism as follows:

Fixed Price Jobs

If a Client and a Talent enter an independent contractor relationship and choose fixed price compensation, then the Client and Talent agree that they will be bound by and BGE will follow the Fixed Price Escrow Instructions.

Hourly Jobs or Miscellaneous Payments

If a Client and a Talent enter an independent contractor relationship and choose hourly compensation, and/or if the Client makes Miscellaneous payments to the Talent then the Client and Talent agree that they will be bound by and BGE will follow the Hourly and Miscellaneous Payment Agreement with Escrow Instructions.

Employment Relationships

If a Client and a Talent enter an employment relationship, then the Client and Talent agree that the Payroll Services Agreement and the Hourly and Miscellaneous Payment Agreement with Escrow Instructions both apply.

Mandatory Terms

A Member Contract may modify only certain provisions of the Terms of Service as follows:

Independent Contractor Services Agreement

A Member Contract may modify the Independent Contractor Services Agreement to the extent any Client and Talent agree to contrary Job terms or contractual provisions and record their agreement on the Site in accordance with the Terms of Service.

Refund and Cancellation Policy; Dispute Resolution Policies

A Member Contract may modify the Refund and Cancellation Policy and the Dispute Resolution Policies referenced therein to the extent a Private Talent Cloud Client and Talent agree to contrary Job terms or other contractual provisions and record their agreement on the Site in accordance with the Terms of Service. Except as expressly permitted in the foregoing provisions of this subsection titled "Mandatory Terms," all other provisions of the Terms of Service may not be modified and are called " Mandatory Terms." Any purported modification to the Mandatory Terms will be null and void.

Order of Precedence

If there are any conflicts in the various terms of the Member Contract, those conflicts will be resolved in the order of precedence stated in: (1) the Independent Contractor Services Agreement for an independent contractor relationship;or (2) the Payroll Services Agreement for an employment relationship.

3. Relationship with Bounty Gamers

  • Bounty Gamers Not a Party to Jobs.
  • Bounty Gamers is not a party to the dealings between Client and Talent, including posts, proposals, screening selection contracting, performance of Talent Services and payment for a Job.
  • Bounty Gamers does not introduce Talent to Clients or help Talent find Jobs.
  • Bounty Gamers merely makes the Site Services available to enable Talent to identify and determine the suitability of Clients for themselves and to enable Clients to identify and determine the suitability of Talent for themselves.
  • Bounty Gamers may sort proposals to enable Clients to more easily navigate and choose which Talent to contact.
  • Bounty Gamers does not direct, has no control over, makes no representations, and does not guarantee the quality, safety or legality of Talent Services, the truth or accuracy of Job listings, the qualifications, background, or identities of Members, the ability of Talent to deliver Talent Services, the ability of Clients to pay for Talent Services, or that a Client or Talent can or will actually complete a transaction.
  • Bounty Gamers is not required to and may not verify any information given to us by Talent or Clients, nor does Bounty Gamers perform background checks on Talent or Clients.

YOU HEREBY ACKNOWLEDGE AND AGREE THAT Bounty Gamers MAY PROVIDE INFORMATION ABOUT A TALENT OR CLIENT, SUCH AS A STRENGTH OR RISK SCORE, GEOGRAPHICAL LOCATION, OR VERIFICATION OF IDENTITY OR CREDENTIALS. HOWEVER, SUCH INFORMATION IS BASED SOLELY ON DATA THAT TALENT OR CLIENT SUBMITS TO Bounty Gamers, AND Bounty Gamers PROVIDES SUCH INFORMATION SOLELY FOR THE CONVENIENCE OF MEMBERS AND IS NOT AN INTRODUCTION, ENDORSEMENT OR RECOMMENDATION BY Bounty Gamers.

Third-Party Beneficiary of Member Contract

Client and Talent acknowledge and agree that the value, reputation, and goodwill of the Site depend on their performance of their covenants and agreements in their Member Contract. Client and Talent therefore appoint Bounty Gamers as a third-party beneficiary of their Member Contract for purposes of enforcing the obligations owed to, and the benefits conferred on, Bounty Gamers by the Member Contract. Client and Talent further agree that Bounty Gamers has the right to take such actions with respect to the Member Contract or their Accounts, including without limitation suspension, termination, or legal actions, as Bounty Gamers in our sole discretion deems necessary.

No Agency, Partnership or Joint Venture

This Agreement and any registration for or use of the Site will not be construed as creating or implying any relationship of agency, franchise, partnership or joint venture between you and Bounty Gamers, except and solely to the extent expressly stated in the Terms of Service.

Records of Compliance

Client and Talent will each (1) create and maintain records to document satisfaction of their respective obligations under this Agreement and any Member Contract, including, without limitation, their respective payment obligations and compliance with tax and employment laws, and (2) provide copies of such records to Bounty Gamers upon request. Nothing in this subsection shall be construed as requiring Bounty Gamers to supervise or monitor Talent Services or a Member’s compliance with this Agreement, the other Terms of Service, or a Member Contract.

4. Fees

Service Fee

When a Client pays a Talent or funds related to a Job are otherwise released to a Talent as required by the applicable Escrow Instructions, BGE credits the Talent Escrow Account and then deducts a Service Fee that Bounty Gamers earns and Talent agrees to pay Bounty Gamers for creating, hosting, maintaining, and providing the Site Services. The Service Fee is described here.

All transactions are subject to a 10% + $0.30 service fee with additional international fees when applicable

No Fee for Introduction or Finding Job

Bounty Gamers does not introduce Clients to Talent and does not help Talent find Jobs. Bounty Gamers merely makes the Site Services available to enable Talent to do so themselves. Therefore, Bounty Gamers does not charge a fee when a Talent finds a suitable Client or finds a Job. However, Client and a Talent are obligated to use the Site to pay and receive payment for their work together if they identified each other through the Site, as detailed in Section 5 titled "Exclusivity,"below.

Membership Fee

Talent may subscribe to different levels of participation and privileges on the Site, by payment of subscription fees as described here and subject to the Talent Memberships, Proposals & Fulfillment Policy.

Other Fees

Bounty Gamers may offer additional features, such as featured posts or verification features, for additional fees. Such features and fees are described in detail here. BGE may also charge Escrow Fees as described in the Account Agreement and to the extent permitted by applicable law.

5. Exclusivity

You acknowledge and agree that a substantial portion of the compensation Bounty Gamers receives for making the Site available to you is the Service Fee described in the subsection titled "Service Fee" in Section 4 above. You further acknowledge and agree that Bounty Gamers only collects this Service Fee when a Client and a Talent pay and receive payment through the Site. Therefore, in consideration our making the Site available to you, for 24 months from the time you identify or are identified by any party through the Site (the "Exclusivity Period"), you must use the Site as your exclusive method to request, make and receive all payments for work directly or indirectly with that party or arising out of your relationship with that party (the "Bounty Gamers Relationship"). You may opt-out of this obligation only if Client or prospective Client pays Bounty Gamers an "Opt-Out Fee" computed to be the greater of the following amounts:

  • $2,500 (USD); or
  • 15% of the cost to the Client of the services to be performed in the Bounty Gamers Relationship during the Exclusivity Period, as estimated in good faith by the prospective Client; or
  • All Service Fees that would be earned by Bounty Gamers from the Bounty Gamers Relationship during the Exclusivity Period, computed based on the annualized amount earned by Talent from Client during the most recent normalized 8 week period, or during such shorter period as data is available to Bounty Gamers and, in any case, plus interest at the rate of 18% per annum or the maximum rate permitted by applicable law, whichever is less, calculated from the date Client first makes payment to the subject Talent until the date the Opt-Out Fee is paid.

To pay the Opt-Out Fee, you must request instructions by sending an email message to optoutfee@bountygamers.com

Non-Circumvention

You agree not to circumvent the Payment Methods offered by the Site. By way of illustration and not in limitation of the foregoing, you must not:

  • Submit proposals or solicit parties identified through the Site to contact, hire, manage or pay outside the Site.
  • Accept proposals or solicit parties identified through the Site to contact, deliver services, invoice, or receive payment outside the Site.
  • Invoice or report on the Site or in an Opt-Out request an invoice or payment amount lower than that actually agreed between Client and Talent.

You agree to notify Bounty Gamers immediately if another person improperly contacts you or suggests making or receiving payments outside of the Site.

This release will not apply to a claim that Bounty Gamers failed to meet a Bounty Gamers obligation under this Agreement and the Terms of Service.

The foregoing indemnity will include, without limitation, such cause of action, claim, suit, proceeding, demand or action arising out of the negligence of any Indemnified Party; provided that the foregoing indemnification shall not extend to the gross negligence or willful misconduct of an Indemnified Party.

15. Term; Termination and Suspension

This Agreement will become effective upon your first visit to the Site and will remain in effect for the duration of your use of the Site. Unless both you and Bounty Gamers agree otherwise in writing, either of us may terminate the contract represented by this Agreement in our sole discretion, at any time, without explanation, upon written notice. If you are using Bounty Gamers Payroll Services, you must legally terminate your relationship with Client or Talent, as applicable, before terminating this Agreement. In the event you properly terminate this Agreement, your Account is automatically terminated; however, (i) if you have any open Jobs when you terminate this Agreement you will continue to be bound by this Agreement until all such Jobs have closed; (ii) Bounty Gamers will continue to perform those services necessary to complete any open Job or related transaction between you and another Member; and (ii) you will continue to be obligated to pay any amounts accrued but unpaid as of the date of termination or as of the completion of any open Jobs, whichever is later, to Bounty Gamers for any Site Services and to any Talent for any Talent Services. Without limiting any other provisions of this Agreement, the termination of this Agreement for any reason will not release you, any Member with whom you have entered into a Member Contract, or Bounty Gamers from any obligations incurred prior to termination of this Agreement or that thereafter may accrue in respect of any act or omission prior to such termination. Those Site Policies necessary to implement the foregoing survive termination of this Agreement for any reason.

Any termination of an Account will automatically lead to the termination of all related Team Accounts, and upon any termination of a Team Account, Bounty Gamers may terminate any or all related Accounts and Team Member Accounts.

Without limiting Bounty Gamers’s other remedies, we may issue a warning, or temporarily suspend, indefinitely suspend or terminate your User access, Account or a Job, and refuse to provide any or all Site Services to you if: (a) you breach the letter or spirit of any terms and conditions of this Agreement, other parts of the Terms of Service, or the linked policies and information incorporated herein by reference, including our written policies and procedures posted on the Site; (b) we suspect or become aware that you have provided false or misleading information to us; or (c) we believe, in our sole discretion, that your actions may cause legal liability for you, our Members or Bounty Gamers or our Affiliates; may be contrary to the interests of the Site or the User community; or may involve illicit activity. Once your Account is indefinitely suspended or terminated, you must not continue to use the Site under the same Account or a different Account or reregister under a new Account without Bounty Gamers’s prior written consent.

Without limiting Bounty Gamers’s other remedies, if you engage in actions or activities that circumvent the Site or otherwise reduce fees owed Bounty Gamers or our Affiliates under this Agreement, you must pay Bounty Gamers for all fees owed to Bounty Gamers and Affiliates and reimburse Bounty Gamers for all losses and costs (including any and all time incurred by employees of Bounty Gamers or our Affiliates) and reasonable expenses (including attorneys’ fees) related to investigating such breach and collecting such fees.

In addition, violations of this Agreement may be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law and may result in additional penalties and sanctions.

We will notify you if we cancel your Account, unless we believe,in our sole judgment, that giving notice might cause a risk of further violation or damages. However, we will notify you that your Account will be canceled if applicable law requires such notification. You acknowledge and agree that the value, reputation and goodwill of the Site depend on transparency of Member Account status to all Members, including both yourself and other Members who are participating in Jobs with you. You therefore agree as follows: If Bounty Gamers suspends or terminates your account or job, Bounty Gamers has the right but not the obligations to (1) notify other members engaged in active jobs with you to inform them of your suspended or terminated account or job status, and (2) provide them with summary reasons for your account suspension or termination.

When your Account is terminated for any reason, you will no longer have access to data, messages, files and other material you keep on the Site. If practicable, Bounty Gamers will retain this information along with all your previous posts and proposals for a period of one year from the date of termination, to give you ample time to institute an appeal our decision through the process described in the subsection titled "Disputes with Bounty Gamers" in Section 16 below. If you appeal our decision through that process within one year, Bounty Gamers will retain your information until such dispute is resolved. If you fail to appeal our decision within one year, Bounty Gamers may delete your information including data,messages, files and other material you keep on the Site.

The following will all survive termination of this Agreement for any reason: (a) those terms of this Agreement that by their nature are intended to survive this Agreement; and (b) the Account Agreement, the applicable Escrow Instructions, the Payroll Services Agreement, the Refund and Cancellation Policy, and the applicable Dispute Resolution Policies.

This Agreement and any Claim, including without limitation any dispute relating to a Member Contract, shall be governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of the State of Virginia, without regard to its conflict of law provisions and excluding the United Nations Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods (CISG); provided, however, that any Claims made by any Talent located within the United States will be governed by the law of the state in which such talent resides.

You agree that any Claim must be resolved as described in the subsections below titled "Informal Dispute Resolution" and "Mandatory Binding Arbitration and Class Action/Jury Trial Waiver."

Informal Dispute Resolution

Before serving a demand for arbitration of a Claim, or otherwise seeking injunctive or other equitable relief in a court of law as expressly permitted in this Agreement, you agree to first notify Bounty Gamers of the Claim at Attn: Legal, 1515 Jefferson Davis Highway, Arlington, VA 22202 (the "Notice") and seek informal resolution of the Claim. The Notice must include your name, pertinent account information, a brief description of the Claim, and your contact information, so that we may evaluate the Claim and attempt to informally resolve the Claim. Bounty Gamers will have 60 days from the date of its receipt of the Notice to informally resolve the Claim, which, if successful, will avoid the need for further action.

Mandatory Binding Arbitration and Class Action/Jury Trial Waiver (Does Not Apply to Talent Located Outside the United States and Its Territories).

This Mandatory Binding Arbitration and Class Action/Jury Trial Waiver provision ("Arbitration Provision") applies to all users except Talent located outside of the United States and its territories.

In the unlikely event that Bounty Gamers is unable to resolve a Claim within 60 days of its receipt of the Notice, you, Bounty Gamers, and our Affiliates agree to resolve the Claim by binding arbitration before an arbitrator of Bounty Gamers’s choosing.

A. Scope of Arbitration Agreement and Conduct of Arbitration.

Arbitration as provided in this Arbitration Provision is governed by the United States Federal Arbitration Act (9 U.S.C. §§ 1 et seq.). Except as otherwise stated in this Section, this Arbitration Provision applies to any legal dispute arising out of or related to your relationship with Bounty Gamers (including any claimed employment with the Company or one of its Affiliates or successors) or termination of your relationship with Bounty Gamers, regardless of the date of Claim accrual. This Arbitration Provision survives after your relationship with Bounty Gamers ends. Except as it otherwise provides, this Arbitration Provision is intended to apply to the resolution of disputes that otherwise would be resolved in a court of law or before a forum other than arbitration.

Except as otherwise stated in this Section, you and Bounty Gamers agree that any legal dispute or controversy covered by this Arbitration Provision, or arising out of, relating to, or concerning the validity, enforceability or breach of this Arbitration Provision, will be resolved by binding arbitration administered by a company of Bounty Gamers’s choosing. If for any reason the chosen company will not administer the arbitration, either party may apply to a court of competent jurisdiction with authority over the location where the arbitration will be conducted for appointment of a neutral Arbitrator. Except as otherwise provided herein, arbitration will be conducted in county and state of Bounty Gamers’s choosing in accordance with the chosen company’s Comprehensive Arbitration Rules and Procedures under the Optional Expedited Arbitration Procedures then in effect for the chosen company. Notwithstanding the foregoing, any Claims or disputes by Talent that allege employment or worker classification claims will be conducted within 25 miles of where the Talent is located in accordance with the chosen company’s Employment Arbitration Rules and Procedures then in effect.

The parties agree that any party will have the right to appear at the arbitration by telephone and/or video rather than in person.

Except as it otherwise provides, this Arbitration Provision applies, without limitation, to all disputes arising out of or related to your relationship with Bounty Gamers or the termination of that relationship, any payments you claim due you from Bounty Gamers, trade secrets, unfair competition, compensation, classification, minimum wage, seating, expense reimbursement, overtime, breaks and rest periods, termination, discrimination or harassment and claims arising under the Uniform Trade Secrets Act, Civil Rights Act of 1964, Americans With Disabilities Act, Age Discrimination in Employment Act, Family Medical Leave Act, Fair Labor Standards Act, Employee Retirement Income Security Act (except for claims for employee benefits under any benefit plan sponsored by the Company and (a) covered by the Employee Retirement Income Security Act of 1974 or (b) funded by insurance), Affordable Care Act, Genetic Information Non-Discrimination Act, state statutes or regulations addressing the same or similar subject matters, and all other federal or state legal claims arising out of or relating to your relationship with Bounty Gamers or the termination of that relationship.

You and Bounty Gamers will follow the applicable chosen company’s rules with respect to arbitration fees. In any arbitration under the chosen company’s Employment Arbitration Rules and Procedures, the Talent will pay the chosen company’s arbitration fees only to the extent those fees are no greater than the filing or initial appearance fees applicable to court actions in the jurisdiction where the arbitration will be conducted. The arbitrator must follow applicable law and may award only those remedies that would have applied had the matter been heard in court. Judgment may be entered on the arbitrator’s decision in any court having jurisdiction.

This Arbitration Provision does not apply to litigation between the Company and you to which you are a party that is already pending in a state or federal court as of the effective date of this Arbitration Provision. This Arbitration Provision also does not apply to claims for workers compensation, state disability insurance or unemployment insurance benefits. Either you or Bounty Gamers may apply to a court of competent jurisdiction for temporary or preliminary injunctive relief in connection with an arbitrable controversy, but only upon the ground that the award to which that party may be entitled may be rendered ineffectual without such relief. Notwithstanding this Arbitration Provision, you and Bounty Gamers retain the right to bring an action in small claims court within the jurisdictional limits of the small claims court and as long as such matter is only pending in that court.

Regardless of any other terms of this Arbitration Provision, a claim may be brought before and remedies awarded by an administrative agency if applicable law permits the agency to adjudicate the claim notwithstanding the existence of this agreement to arbitrate. Such administrative claims include without limitation claims or charges brought before the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, the U.S. Department of Labor, or the National Labor Relations Board. Nothing in this Arbitration Provision shall be deemed to preclude or excuse a party from bringing an administrative claim before any agency in order to fulfill the party's obligation to exhaust administrative remedies before making a claim in arbitration.

Disputes that may not be subject to a pre-dispute arbitration agreement as provided by the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act (Public Law 111-203) are excluded from the coverage of this Arbitration Provision.

B. Enforcement of this Arbitration Provision.

This Arbitration Provision is the full and complete agreement relating to the formal resolution of disputes covered by this Arbitration Provision. In the event any portion of this Arbitration Provision is deemed unenforceable, the remainder of this Arbitration Provision will be enforceable. If the Class Action Waiver in subsection C, below, of this Arbitration Provision is deemed to be unenforceable, you and Bounty Gamers agree that this Arbitration Provision is otherwise silent as to any party's ability to bring a class, collective or representative action in arbitration.

C. Class Action and Jury Trial Waiver.

THIS ARBITRATION PROVISION AFFECTS YOUR ABILITY TO PARTICIPATE IN CLASS, COLLECTIVE OR REPRESENTATIVE ACTIONS. BOTH YOU AND Bounty Gamers AGREE TO BRING ANY DISPUTE IN ARBITRATION ON AN INDIVIDUAL BASIS ONLY, AND NOT ON A CLASS, COLLECTIVE, OR PRIVATE ATTORNEY GENERAL REPRESENTATIVE BASIS ON BEHALF OF OTHERS. tHERE WILL BE NO RIGHT OR AUTHORITY FOR ANY DISPUTE TO BE BROUGHT, HEARD OR ARBITRATED AS A CLASS, COLLECTIVE, REPRESENTATIVE OR PRIVATE ATTORNEY GENERAL ACTION, OR AS A MEMBER IN ANY SUCH CLASS, COLLECTIVE, REPRESENTATIVE OR PRIVATE ATTORNEY GENERAL PROCEEDING ("CLASS ACTION WAIVER"). THE CLASS ACTION WAIVER DOES NOT APPLY TO ANY CLAIM YOU BRING AS A PRIVATE ATTORNEY GENERAL SOLELY ON YOUR OWN BEHALF AND NOT ON BEHALF OF OTHERS. NOTWITHSTANDING ANY OTHER PORTION OF THIS ARBITRATION PROVISIONS OR THE CHOSEN COMPANY’S RULES, DISPUTES REGARDING THE VALIDITY, ENFORCEABILITY OR BREACH OF THE CLASS ACTION WAIVER MAY BE RESOLVED ONLY BY A CIVIL COURT OF COMPETENT JURISDICTION AND NOT BY AN ARBITRATOR. IN ANY CASE IN WHICH (1) THE DISPUTE IS FILED AS A CLASS, COLLECTIVE, REPRESENTATIVE OR PRIVATE ATTORNEY GENERAL ACTION AND (2) A CIVIL COURT OF COMPETENT JURISDICTION FINDS ALL OR PART OF THE CLASS ACTION WAIVER UNENFORCEABLE, THE CLASS, COLLECTIVE, REPRESENTATIVE AND/OR PRIVATE ATTORNEY GENERAL ACTION TO THAT EXTENT MUST BE LITIGATED IN A CIVIL COURT OF COMPETENT JURISDICTION, BUT THE PORTION OF THE CLASS ACTION WAIVER THAT IS ENFORCEABLE SHALL BE ENFORCED IN ARBITRATION. YOU AND Bounty Gamers AGREE THAT YOU WILL NOT BE RETALIATED AGAINST, DISCIPLINED OR THREATENED WITH DISCIPLINE AS A RESULT OF EXERCISING YOUR RIGHTS UNDER SECTION 7 OF THE NATIONAL LABOR RELATIONS ACT BY FILING OR PARTICIPATING IN A CLASS, COLLECTIVE OR REPRESENTATIVE ACTION IN ANY FORUM. HOWEVER, THE COMPANY MAY LAWFULLY SEEK ENFORCEMENT OF THIS ARBITRATION PROVISION AND THE CLASS ACTION WAIVER UNDER THE FEDERAL ARBITRATION ACT AND SEEK DISMISSAL OF SUCH CLASS, COLLECTIVE OR REPRESENTATIVE ACTIONS OR CLAIMS. THE CLASS ACTION WAIVER SHALL BE SEVERABLE IN ANY CASE IN WHICH THE DISPUTE IS FILED AS AN INDIVIDUAL ACTION, AND SEVERANCE IS NECESSARY TO ENSURE THAT THE INDIVIDUAL ACTION PROCEEDS IN ARBITRATION.

D. Right to Opt Out of Arbitration and Class Action/Jury Trial Waiver.

You may opt out of the foregoing arbitration and class action/jury trial waiver provision of this Agreement by notifying Bounty Gamers in writing within 30 days of the date you first registered for the Site. To opt out, you must send a written notification to Bounty Gamers at Attn: Legal, 1515 Jefferson Davis Highway, Arlington, VA 22202 that includes (a) your account username, (b) your name, (c) your address, (d) your telephone number, (e) your email address, and (f) a clear statement indicating that you do not wish to resolve claims through arbitration and demonstrating compliance with the 30-day time limit to opt out of the above arbitration and class action/jury trial waiver provisions
