Such payments will be made through Payment Services Providers, when applicable, and in accordance with the rules, contract and policies that govern such Payment Service Providers. In accepting appointment as Payment Agent, RemotePass assumes no liability whatsoever for any acts or omissions of Contractors related to any Contractor Agreement or these Terms of Service, failure by Contractors to provide the Services in accordance with any Contractor Agreement, or failure by Clients to pay Fees or make payments owed to Contractors, and Contractors understand that RemotePass’ obligation to pay Contractors is subject to and conditional upon RemotePass’ actual receipt of payment from Clients. Clients’ payment obligations to Contractors will be satisfied upon receipt of payment by RemotePass (or its Payment Services Provider, as applicable), and RemotePass (via its Payment Services Provider, as applicable) will be responsible for remitting funds to Contractors in the manner described in these Terms of Service. In the event that RemotePass (via Payment Services Provider) does not remit any such amounts to a Contractor, the Contractor will have recourse for non-payment solely against RemotePass, and not Clients.

2.6 Payments to and from RemotePass Accounts. Other than RemotePass’ role as a limited payment agent for Contractors, RemotePass does not and will not provide banking, deposit taking, stored value, e-money, escrow, insurance or any other financial service to Users, and, for the avoidance of doubt, RemotePass is not a bank, deposit taking institution, money transmitter or provider of stored value or e-money, holder of escrowed funds, insurance company or any other sort of financial services company.

We have provided more information about the types of payments that RemotePass accept via such Payment Service Providers on our payment methods page, including what Payment methods are accepted in various geographic locations and other limitations. It is important for all Users to review this page before using the Services to understand how and whether they can pay or receiveFees.  Users non-termination or continued use of RemotePass reaffirms that it is authorized to use the Users’ payment methods on file for the Services. This right does not waive RemotePass’ right to seek payment directly from the User.

Arbitration shall be conducted in accordance with the American Arbitration Association's rules for arbitration of consumer-related disputes (accessible at here).

This Arbitration Agreement includes, without limitation, disputes arising out of or related to the interpretation or application of the Arbitration Agreement, including the enforceability, revocability, scope, or validity of the Arbitration Agreement or any portion of the Arbitration Agreement. All such matters shall be decided by an arbitrator and not by a court or judge.

CLASS ACTION WAIVER: TO THE EXTENT PERMISSIBLE BY LAW, ALL CLAIMS MUST BE BROUGHT IN A PARTY’S INDIVIDUAL CAPACITY, AND NOT AS A PLAINTIFF OR CLASS MEMBER IN ANY PURPORTED CLASS, COLLECTIVE ACTION, OR REPRESENTATIVE PROCEEDING (COLLECTIVELY“CLASS ACTION WAIVER”). THE ARBITRATOR MAY NOT CONSOLIDATE MORE THAN ONE PERSON'S CLAIMS OR ENGAGE IN ANY CLASS ARBITRATION. YOU ACKNOWLEDGE THAT, BY AGREEING TO THESE TERMS, YOU AND RemotePass ARE EACH WAIVING THE RIGHT TO ATRIAL BY JURY AND THE RIGHT TO PARTICIPATE IN A CLASS ACTION.

The arbitration will be conducted by a single, neutral arbitrator and shall take place by an arbitrator in the county or parish in which you reside, or another mutually agreeable location, telephonically, in the English language. The arbitrator may award any relief that a court of. competent jurisdiction could award and the arbitral decision may be enforced in any court. An arbitrator’s decision and judgment thereon will not have a precedential or collateral estoppel effect. At your request, the arbitrator may provide for submitting and determining motions on briefs, without oral hearings. To the extent permitted by law, the prevailing party in any action or proceeding to enforce these Terms, any arbitration pursuant to these Terms, or any small claims action shall be entitled to costs and attorneys’ fees.
