Refund Policy Gifts
Charitable gifts are generally not refundable. Refunds will be made in the event of a mistake or if the purpose for which the gift is given cannot be fulfilled by Hebrew Free Loan.
Individuals who receive refunds have the responsibility of correcting any tax filings they have made reflecting the refunded amount. Payments made prior to cancellation will not be refunded.
If a dispute arises between you and Detroit Hebrew Free Loan (HFL), you and HFL agree, as permitted by applicable law, to resolve any claim or controversy at law or equity arising out of, relating to, or connected in any way with the Site through binding arbitration or as we and you otherwise agree in writing. Before resorting to these alternatives, we strongly encourage you to first contact us directly to seek a resolution. We will consider reasonable requests to resolve the dispute through alternative dispute resolution procedures, such as mediation or arbitration, as alternatives to litigation.
Certain portions of this section are deemed to be a “written agreement to arbitrate” pursuant to the Federal Arbitration Act. You and HFL agree that we intend that this section satisfies the “writing” requirement of the Federal Arbitration Act. This section can only be amended by mutual agreement.
Binding arbitration. If any controversy, allegation, or claim relates in any way to your use of the Site (collectively, “Dispute”), then you agree the Dispute shall be submitted to confidential arbitration in Michigan except that we may seek injunctive or other appropriate relief in any state or federal court. You hereby consent to, and waive, all defenses of lack of personal jurisdiction and forum non conveniens with respect to venue and jurisdiction in the state and federal courts of Michigan. Arbitration under these Terms shall be conducted pursuant to the Commercial Arbitration Rules then prevailing at the American Arbitration Association; any dispute shall otherwise be governed by the internal laws of the State of Michigan without regard to Michigan choice of law principles, except that the provisions of this agreement concerning arbitration shall be governed by the Federal Arbitration Act, 9 U.S.C. § 1, et seq. The arbitrability of disputes shall be determined by the arbitrator. The arbitrator’s award shall be final and binding and may be entered as a judgment in any court of competent jurisdiction.
Limited time to file claims. You agree that regardless of any statute or law to the contrary, any claim or cause of action arising out of, related to or connected with the use of the Site must be filed within one year after such claim or cause of action arose or be forever banned.
Class action waiver. DISPUTES WILL BE ARBITRATED, LITIGATED, OR OTHERWISE RESOLVED ONLY ON AN INDIVIDUAL BASIS AND WILL NOT BE JOINED OR CONSOLIDATED WITH ANY OTHER ARBITRATIONS, LAWSUITS, OR OTHER PROCEEDINGS THAT INVOLVE ANY CLAIM OR CONTROVERSY OF ANY OTHER PARTY. YOU AND NAB AGREE THAT EACH MAY BRING CLAIMS AGAINST THE OTHER ONLY IN YOUR OR ITS INDIVIDUAL CAPACITY, AND NOT AS A PLAINTIFF, COUNTER-PLAINTIFF, OR CLASS MEMBER IN ANY PURPORTED CLASS OR REPRESENTATIVE PROCEEDING.
