PLEASE READ THIS CAREFULLY. IT AFFECTS YOUR RIGHTS.
Most or your concerns can be resolved quickly to your satisfaction by contacting our Customer Service Center via our Contact Us page. In the unlikely event that Customer Service cannot resolve your complaint to your satisfaction, or if we have not been able to resolve a dispute with you after trying to do so informally, we each agree to resolve those disputes through binding arbitration rather than in court. Arbitration is less formal than a lawsuit. Arbitration uses a neutral arbitrator instead of a judge or jury, allows less discovery than courts, and is subject to very limited court review. The American Arbitration Association (AAA) will serve as the arbitration provider. We agree that any arbitration under these Terms will take place on an individual basis. Representative, group, collective or class actions or arbitrations are not permitted. As explained below, if you prevail in arbitration, AIC may pay you more than the amount of the arbitrator's award and will pay your actual, reasonable attorney's fees if you are awarded an amount greater than what AIC offered you to settle the dispute before arbitration.
You may speak with your own lawyer before using this Website or purchasing any Service, but your use of this Website and the purchase of any Service constitutes your agreement to these Terms.
In order to contact AIC regarding a complaint about the Service, please Contact Us.
If you encounter a technical problem printing or accessing your completed application, or some other problem, AIC's customer service representatives may be able to help.
If you ask AIC to send your completed application to you, you are specifically authorizing them to log in to your account to generate your application and view your application data.
If you ask a customer service representative to remotely control your computer in order to try to resolve your problem, you acknowledge and accept that AIC is not liable for any technical problems that may persist or arise with your computer after doing so.
These Terms constitute the entire agreement between you and AIC. They govern your use of the Website and the Service and supersede any prior agreements between you and AIC. AIC's failure to exercise or enforce any right or provision of the Terms shall not constitute a waiver of such right or provision. The Terms do not limit any rights that AIC may have under trade secret, copyright, patent or other laws. AIC's employees are not authorized to modify the Terms, or to make any additional representations, commitments, or warranties binding on AIC, except in writing signed by an authorized AIC officer. If any provision of these Terms is found to be invalid, you agree that the other provisions of the Terms remain in full force and effect.
You warrant, represent and agree that, by using the Website and/or the Services, you (i) have carefully read and considered these Terms and fully understand its contents, (ii) are consenting to these Terms of your own free will, based upon your own judgment and without any coercion or fear of retaliation, and (iii) you have had a chance to consult independent legal counsel with respect to these Terms.
Further, unless both you and AIC agree otherwise, no court or arbitrator may consolidate more than one person's claims or otherwise preside over any form of a representative or class action based on any claim you may assert against AIC.
In the event that you breach these Terms, AIC will, in addition to all other available remedies, be entitled to the equitable remedies of a temporary restraining order, preliminary and/or permanent injunction.
