If you believe that a User has acted inappropriately, such as by violating these Terms, you may report your concerns either via the links we have included on the Website or the App, or by contacting us by the means described above. If we are notified by a User that he or she believes that certain Content at the Website or through the App is in violation of these Terms, we may investigate the allegation and determine in good faith, in our sole discretion, whether to remove or block access to such Content, or to take action with respect to person or persons responsible for posting the Content. We have the right (but not the obligation), in our sole discretion, to remove, relocate, or otherwise block or restrict any Content, with or without notice, and without liability.
You are solely responsible for your interaction with other Users that involve or arise from your relationship to the Website and the App. Although we may monitor claims that involve you and other Users, we have no obligation to become involved. If you become involved in such a dispute, and our provision of Services is an insubstantial factor (or no factor) in creating this dispute, then you release us from claims, demands, and damages (actual and consequential) of every kind and nature, known and unknown, arising out of or connected with such dispute.
Agreement for Binding Arbitration. We do not anticipate having any disagreements with you, the user, regarding usage of this Site. But if any concerns about these matters arise, please notify us immediately. We would endeavor to resolve any disagreements in a fair and amicable manner. If it is not possible to resolve the disputes ourselves, then each party hereby agrees that all disputes or claims between you and the Company of any nature whatsoever, including but not limited to those relating to use of the Website or our App or the quality or appropriateness of services offered by the Website or the App shall be resolved by binding arbitration. The Company chooses arbitration because it is usually less expensive and quicker than litigation and will allow us to resolve our disputes privately.
You agree that, by entering into this Agreement, you and Our Microlending are each waiving the right to a trial by jury or to participate in a class action. This Agreement evidences a transaction in interstate commerce, and thus the Federal Arbitration Act governs the interpretation and enforcement of this provision.

YOU AND OUR MICROLENDING AGREE THAT EACH MAY BRING CLAIMS AGAINST THE OTHER ONLY IN YOUR OR ITS INDIVIDUAL CAPACITY, AND NOT AS A PLAINTIFF OR CLASS MEMBER IN ANY PURPORTED CLASS OR REPRESENTATIVE PROCEEDING. Further, unless both you and the Company agree otherwise, the arbitrator may not consolidate more than one person’s claims, and may not otherwise preside over any form of a representative or class proceeding. The arbitration shall be conducted by the Judicial Arbitration and Mediation Services (“JAMS”). The arbitrator must decide all disputes in accordance with the chosen association’s rules and in accordance with Florida law, and shall have power and obligation to decide all matters submitted, including arbitrability and legal questions raised by pleading or summary judgment motions. In the event that any dispute or claim is determined not subject to arbitration by the arbitrator, all parties agree that their respective rights and obligations shall be governed by the laws of the State of Florida, excluding its choice of law rules. Furthermore, in the event that any dispute or claim is determined not subject to arbitration by the arbitrator, all parties agree that any and all legal action or proceedings shall be instituted in a state or federal court in Florida, and in the County of Miami Dade,Florida.
