This express written consent includes but is not limited to contact by manual calling methods, prerecorded or artificial voice messages, text messages, emails, and/or automatic telephone dialing systems. You agree that FNF and its affiliates, agents, and its third-party representatives may, now or in the future, use any email address or telephone number you provide to FNF to contact you for any reason, regardless of whether you incur charges as a result. You expressly agree that such consent may not be revoked at any time for any reason.
If you detect or discover any issues or failures regarding the operation, function, availability or security of the Sites, please notify us by emailing a description of the issue to firstname.lastname@example.org.
We may terminate or suspend your account immediately, without prior notice or liability, for any reason at our sole discretion. Upon termination, your right to use the Sites will immediately cease. All provisions of the Terms which by their nature should survive termination shall survive termination, including, without limitation, ownership provisions, warranty disclaimers, indemnity, limitations of liability, and arbitration provisions.
To the fullest extent allowed by applicable law, you agree to indemnify and hold harmless FNF and its licensee and licensors, and their employees, contractors, agents, officers and directors, affiliates, service providers, successors, and assigns, from and against any and all claims, damages, obligations, losses, liabilities, costs or debt, and expenses (including but not limited to attorney’s fees), resulting from or arising out of your use and access of the Sites, use and access of the Sites by any person using your Credentials, your alleged violation or breach of these Terms, or UserCreated Content posted on the Sites.
Limitation of Liability
In no event shall FNF, its directors, employees, partners, agents, suppliers, or affiliates, be liable to you or to any other person for any indirect, incidental, special, consequential, exemplary, or punitive damages, including without limitation, loss of profits, data, use, goodwill, business interruption, or other intangible losses, arising out of or in connection with the Sites, including, without limitation, use, inability to use, or unauthorized use of the Sites, whether based on warranty, contract, tort (including negligence) or any other legal theory, whether or not we have been informed or should have known of the possibility of such damage. In no event shall FNF be liable for any losses or damages incurred as a result of a third party’s use of your Credentials, whether or not such use is with your knowledge or consent.
Your use of the Sites is at your sole risk. The Sites are provided “AS IS” and “AS AVAILABLE,” without warranties of any kind, whether express, implied, or statutory. FNF expressly disclaims all implied or statutory warranties of merchantability, fitness for a particular use or purpose, quality, non-infringement, or course of performance.
FNF does not warrant that the Sites’ function will be uninterrupted, secure, or available or that the Sites are free of errors, defects, viruses, or other harmful components. You are responsible for implementing sufficient procedures and checkpoints to satisfy your particular requirements for anti-virus protection and accuracy of data input and output, and for maintaining a means external to the Sites for any reconstruction of any lost data. FNF does not warrant that the Sites will be compatible with all browsers, operating systems, hardware and software, or that the Sites will meet your requirements. We do not warrant the accuracy, completeness, or usefulness of information on the Sites. All statements and/or opinions, other than content provided by FNF, are solely the opinions and responsibility of the person or entity providing those materials. These materials do not necessarily reflect the opinion of FNF and we accept no responsibility for ensuring their accuracy.
Exclusions and Limitations
To the extent permitted by law, you and FNF each agree to limit claims for damages or other monetary relief against each other to direct and actual damages or statutory damages, regardless of the theory of liability. This means that neither you nor FNF will seek any indirect, special, consequential, treble, or punitive damages from the other. This limitation and waiver also applies to any claims you may bring against any other party to the extent that FNF would be required to indemnify that party for such claim. You agree FNF is not liable for problems caused by you or a third party, or by any act of nature. Some jurisdictions do not allow the exclusion of certain warranties or the exclusion or limitation of liability for damages, so some of the above exclusions or limitations of liability may not apply to you.
To the extent that FNF may not, as a matter of applicable law, disclaim any implied warranty or limits its liabilities, the scope and duration of such warranty and the extent of FNF’s liability shall be the minimum permitted under such applicable law, and its aggregate liability under such circumstances for liabilities that otherwise would have been limited shall not exceed one hundred dollars ($100).
Dispute Resolution – Arbitration Agreement
(Mandatory Binding Arbitration and Class Action Waiver)
Many customer concerns can be resolved quickly and to the customer’s satisfaction by contacting FNF directly regarding the concern. To obtain contact information for a specific department, please go to https://www.fnf.com/Who-We-Are/Contact-Departments. Before taking any formal action, you agree to first contact us and provide us your name, address, telephone number, loan or account number, a description of your dispute, all relevant documents, and your proposed resolution. You may only submit such a notice on your own behalf and not on behalf of any other party. If we are unable to resolve your dispute within 30 days of your notice to us, you agree to submit your dispute to binding arbitration or small claims court as set forth in this provision. Please forward your dispute to: Fidelity National Financial, 601 Riverside Ave, Jacksonville, FL 32204 Attn: Legal Department.
Arbitration Agreement: This section of the Terms shall be referred to as the “Arbitration Agreement.” The Effective Date of the Arbitration Agreement is August 15, 2021. This Arbitration Agreement may change from time to time, and each change will reflect a new effective date. The operative version of the Arbitration Agreement is the version you last agreed to, or were on notice of. Your Arbitration Agreement starts when you accept these Terms by receiving these Terms as part of a transaction with FNF, use the Sites, activate or use your FNF account, change or pay for a FNF product or service, or otherwise express your agreement.
Definitions: As solely used in this Arbitration Agreement, the terms “we,” “us” and “our” mean “us” as defined above, our parent companies, wholly or majority owned subsidiaries, affiliates, commonly-owned companies, management companies, successors, assigns and any of their employees, officers and directors. For purposes of this Arbitration Agreement, these terms also mean any third party providing any goods or services in connection with the Terms, if such third party is named as a party by you in any lawsuit between you and us.
Effect of Acceptance: Once accepted this Arbitration Agreement applies to all disputes involving you and FNF, regardless of when the circumstances giving rise to the dispute occurred, including after termination of your use of any FNF service or product. READ THIS ARBITRATION AGREEMENT CAREFULLY AS IT WILL HAVE A SUBSTANTIAL IMPACT ON HOW LEGAL CLAIMS YOU AND FNF HAVE AGAINST EACH OTHER ARE RESOLVED. It requires the use of individual arbitration rather than jury trials or class actions to resolve disputes and claims (including ones that already are the subject of litigation). Arbitration is more informal than litigation because it uses a neutral arbitrator instead of a judge or jury and allows for less discovery and less appellate review than in court. This Arbitration Agreement shall survive termination of the FNF Terms or termination of your use of any FNF service or product. There is no judge nor jury in arbitration but you and FNF agree that an arbitrator may award you the same damages and relief that you otherwise could recover in a court of law, subject to the limitation of liability herein. You and FNF further agree that the arbitrator must honor the terms of this Agreement. Notwithstanding the foregoing, provided that such action is within the governing jurisdictional limitations, either party may bring a claim on an individual basis only in small claims court or the small claims division of a court of appropriate jurisdiction.
What Claims Are Covered: This Arbitration Agreement governs, to the fullest extent permitted by law, all claims or disputes between You and FNF with no exceptions. References to you or FNF include our respective suppliers, vendors, service providers, or their respective subsidiaries, officers, agents, partners, employees or consultants, predecessors in interest, successors, and assigns. To the fullest extent permitted by law, this Arbitration Agreement includes but is not limited to any and all claims for relief and theories of liability, between you and FNF, whether based on contract, tort, fraud, negligence, regulation or ordinance; claims for relief under any state or federal statutes, including but not limited to: the federal and any state analogs of the Telephone Consumer Protection Act, the Fair Credit Reporting Act, Fair and Accurate Credit Transactions Act, Truth in Lending Act, Real Estate Settlement Procedures Act, and other statutes; claims based on alleged violations of federal regulation or state equivalents, including regulations from the Department of Housing and Urban Development, Consumer Financial Protection Bureau, and Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation; and claims for common law, fraud, misrepresentation, or any other legal or equitable theory arising out of your relationship with FNF, any interactions between you and FNF, and/or claims arising from or related to your contract with FNF. If there is a final judicial determination that applicable law precludes enforcement of this paragraph's limitations as to a particular claim for relief, then that claim (and only that claim) must be severed from the arbitration and may be brought in court.
Severance: If any term of this Arbitration Agreement is to any extent unconscionable, invalid, illegal, or incapable of being enforced, such term shall be excluded to the extent of such unconscionability, invalidity, illegality, or unenforceability; all other terms shall remain in full force and effect.
Types of Relief: All claims between You and FNF, including claims for money damages or for any kind of injunctive, declaratory or non-monetary relief, will be resolved by binding arbitration where permitted by law. If there is a final judicial determination that applicable law precludes enforcement of this paragraph’s limitations as to a particular claim for relief, then that claim (and only that claim) must be severed from the arbitration and may be brought in court.
Delegation Provision: You and FNF agree that the arbitrator shall have the power to rule on his or her own jurisdiction, the existence, scope, validity, and arbitrability of this Agreement.
Single Arbitrator: Claims shall be heard by a single arbitrator.
No Class Action in Arbitration: You and FNF agree that any arbitration will be conducted on an individual basis and not on a consolidated, class wide, or representative basis. Further, you and FNF agree that the arbitrator may not consolidate proceedings or consolidate more than one person’s claims, and may not otherwise preside over any form of a representative or class proceeding. Each party waives the right to litigate in court or arbitrate any claim or dispute as a class action, either as a member of a class or as a representative, or to act as a private attorney general. If there is a final judicial determination that applicable law precludes enforcement of this paragraph’s limitations as to a particular claim for relief, then that claim (and only that claim) must be severed from the arbitration and may be brought in court.
AAA RULES: The arbitration of any dispute or claim shall be conducted in accordance with the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”) Consumer Arbitration Rules (collectively, the “AAA Rules”), as modified by this Agreement. The AAA Rules are available online at www.adr.org or by calling the AAA at 1-800-778-7879. The AAA Expedited Procedures will govern any dispute. It shall be the expectation of FNF and you that any Final Award in the arbitration shall be entered no more than 120 days after the latter of the filing of the demand for arbitration and the service demand for arbitration on the respondent. While the arbitrator may extend such deadline in exceptional circumstances, the AAA shall not appoint an arbitrator who, at the time of appointment, does not expect to be able to enter a Final Award within this timeframe.
Location of Arbitration: Unless you and FNF agree otherwise, to reduce the burden of arbitration on you, the location of any arbitration shall be in the county of your residence for those customers located within the United States. For customers residing outside of the United States, the location of arbitration shall be Jacksonville, Florida, unless you and FNF agree otherwise. Either or both parties may participate in the proceedings by telephone or video conference.
Cost of Arbitration: AAA charges fees to administer an arbitration proceeding and the arbitrator also charges fees. This includes fees not charged by a court. At your written request, we will pay all filing, hearing and/or other fees charged by the AAA and arbitrator to you for claim(s) asserted by you in an individual arbitration after you have paid an amount equivalent to the fee, if any, for filing such claim(s) in state or federal court (whichever is less) in the judicial district in which you reside. In addition, the AAA may have a procedure whereby you can seek a waiver of fees charged to you by the AAA and arbitrator. We will always pay any fees or expenses that we are required to pay by law or the AAA’s rules or that we are required to pay for this Arbitration Agreement to be enforced.
Governing Law: You and FNF agree that use of the Sites evidences a transaction in interstate commerce. The arbitrator shall apply the law of the State in which you reside to the substantive issues that are at issue in the dispute. If you reside outside of the United States, then the arbitrator shall apply the law of the State of Florida to the substantive issues that are at issue in the dispute. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary, the arbitrator shall apply the laws of the State of Florida and the Federal Arbitration Act to interpret and enforce this Arbitration Agreement and each of its provisions, including with regard to any issues over acceptance of the terms of the Arbitration Agreement. Judgment on the award rendered may be entered by any court of competent jurisdiction.
Disclosure with Consent of Both Parties: Except as may be required by law, such as through a petition to confirm or a petition to vacate an arbitration award, neither a party nor an arbitrator may disclose the existence, content, or results of any arbitration hereunder without the prior written consent of both parties.
Time to File Claims: To the greatest extent permitted by law, any cause of action or claim you may have must be commenced within one (1) year after the cause of action accrues; otherwise, such cause of action or claims are permanently barred.
Provision for Settlement Offer in Arbitration: At any time that is 30 days after the filing of the demand for arbitration, the respondent may make a monetary settlement proposal to the party who filed the arbitration (the “Settlement Proposal”). The party who filed the arbitration shall have 30 days to accept the Settlement Proposal, however, the Settlement Proposal can be withdrawn prior to acceptance. In the event that the monetary amount of the Final Award of the arbitrator is less than 50% of the monetary amount in a Settlement Proposal that was available to be accepted by the party who filed the arbitration, then the arbitrator shall award the respondent its attorneys’ fees incurred after the Settlement Proposal was made as a Supplemental Final Award. However, the amount of attorneys’ fees to be awarded as part of such Supplemental Final Award shall be limited to an amount no greater than the amount equal to 40 hours of attorney time at a rate of $125/per hour. The award may cover time incurred either by outside counsel and/or inhouse counsel. Application for such award shall be made to the arbitrator no more than 7 days after entry of the Final Award and shall be supported by a verified application made by an attorney for the party seeking such award. The arbitrator shall only be made aware of a Settlement Proposal made under this section in the event that application for a Supplemental Final Award under this section is made. This Provision For Settlement Offer in Arbitration shall not be deemed to be a material part of the Arbitration Agreement and shall be severed from the Arbitration Agreement to the extent it is determined to be unconscionable, invalid, illegal, or otherwise unenforceable, in which case all other terms shall remain in full force and effect.
