Limitation of Liability

By opting in and participating in text messaging with the Company, you agree to release and hold harmless the Company and its representatives from any and all liability arising from the use of Company SMS programs. To the maximum extent permitted by applicable law, the Company excludes all liability and responsibility to you (or anyone else) in contract, tort (including negligence), or otherwise, for any loss or damage resulting, directly or indirectly, from any use of, or reliance on, the MyTAXPrepOffice text messaging programs.

The MyTAXPrepOffice text messaging programs are provided as is, and the Company renounces all warranties including, but not limited to, fitness for a particular purpose or non-infringement.

Arbitration/Class Action Waiver

All disputes or claims arising out of or relating in any form to these MyTAXPrepOffice SMS Short Code Terms and Conditions, any text messages between you and the Company or between any persons or entities acting on your behalf or on behalf of the Company, regardless of the theory of liability, must be resolved by arbitration.

At the time that you accept this Agreement, if you are a business operating in the United States of America, resident or non-resident of the United States of America, and are subject to U.S Taxation, then the laws of the State of Wyoming govern this Agreement. The Company and you agree that the U.S. Dispute Resolution Process described below applies for all disputes arising out of or in connection with this Agreement or in any way relate to the application of this Agreement.

This agreement to arbitrate is intended to be broadly interpreted, and expressly includes disputes, matters, or claims brought under the Telephone Consumer Protection Act, 47 U.S.C. § 227 et seq., or any other statute, regulation, or legal or equitable theory.

Most concerns can be resolved quickly and to your satisfaction by emailing our support team at support@MyTAXPrepOffice.com. In the unlikely event that our support team is unable to resolve a complaint to your satisfaction after attempting to do so informally, or if we have not been able to resolve a dispute after attempting to do so informally, the only option is to seek settlement of that dispute through mediation. The two parties agree that mediation proceedings are confidential and non-binding. The two parties will agree on the mediator that is chosen and this mediator will decide who will be responsible for the mediation costs.

If the dispute is not settled through mediation within thirty (30) days of the commencement of the mediation proceedings (or such further period as the parties shall agree in writing), the only option is to refer the dispute to and finally resolve the dispute through binding arbitration, instead of in court. Any arbitration under this agreement will take place on an individual basis; you agree with the Company that class arbitrations and class actions are not permitted. For any non-frivolous claim that does not exceed the limits within the State of Wyoming Arbitration Limits, the Company will pay American Arbitration Association (AAA) filing, administrative, and arbitrator costs totaling less than $3,000. Moreover, for any non-frivolous claim disputed through arbitration, you are entitled to recover attorneys' fees from the Company totaling less than $3,000.

The Federal Arbitration Act governs the interpretation and enforcement of this provision. To all other matters, the arbitrator shall apply Wyoming laws. We each agree that any and all disputes must be brought in the parties’ individual capacity and not as a plaintiff or class member in any purported class or representative proceeding. By entering into this Agreement, you agree to arbitration for dispute resolution, and you, therefore, agree that you and the Company are each waiving the right to file a lawsuit and the right to a trial by jury. In addition, you agree with the Company to waive the right to participate in a class action or litigate on a class-wide basis. You agree with the Company that you have expressly and knowingly waived these rights.

Arbitration will be conducted by the American Arbitration Association (AAA) before a single AAA arbitrator under the AAA’s rules. You agree that the two parties will agree on the arbitrator that is chosen. Payment of all filing, administration, and arbitrator fees and costs will be governed by the AAA's rules, except as expressly stated otherwise in this Agreement. If the filing, administration, and arbitrator fees and costs total less than $3,000, the Company will reimburse those fees and costs for claims, unless the arbitrator determines the claims are frivolous. Likewise, the Company will not seek its attorneys’ fees or costs in arbitration unless the arbitrator determines the claims or defenses are frivolous. You agree that you or the Company may choose to have the arbitration conducted by telephone or based on written submissions. You agree with the Company that in-person arbitration will be conducted at a mutually agreeable location. You agree not to conduct arbitration via any payment providers or other third parties. If you go outside the aforementioned process for arbitration (including, but not limited to, by using a payment provider for arbitration), all costs incurred are your responsibility. You agree that the decision of the arbitrator shall be final and not subject to an appeal, and judgment on the arbitration award may be entered in any court having jurisdiction thereof. You agree that the U.S. Dispute Resolution Process shall survive expiration, termination, or rescission of this Agreement.

If you wish to resolve a dispute through mediation, send a letter requesting mediation and describing your claim to: Advanced Tax Solutions LLC, Attention: Legal Department, 1603 Capitol Avenue Suite 310 A254, Cheyenne, WY 82001.

 

Severability

If any part of these MyTAXPrepOffice SMS Terms of Service conflicts with the law, that part will be replaced with a provision which, as far as possible, accomplishes the original purpose of the provision. The rest of the terms would continue to be binding on the parties. The replacement provision will also be binding on the parties.
