The Arbitration Section below governs all disputes between you and us (as defined below).
RESOLUTION OF DISPUTES: YOU ACKNOWLEDGE THAT YOU HAVE READ THIS ARBITRATION SECTION (the “Arbitration Agreement”) CAREFULLY, UNDERSTAND THAT IT CONSTITUTES A BINDING AGREEMENT BETWEEN YOU AND US TO ARBITRATE WHENEVER YOU OR WE ELECT TO ARBITRATE A CLAIM (AS DEFINED BELOW), AND UNDERSTAND THAT IT LIMITS YOUR RIGHTS IN THE EVENT OF A DISPUTE BETWEEN YOU AND US. YOU UNDERSTAND THAT YOU HAVE THE RIGHT TO REJECT THIS ARBITRATION AGREEMENT, AS PROVIDED IN PARAGRAPH (P) BELOW.
(A) Definitions. This Arbitration Agreement incorporates the defined terms within the Agreement unless specifically defined below. In this Arbitration Agreement:
(i) “You” and “your” mean each individual entering into this Arbitration Agreement, as well as any person claiming through such individual;
(ii) “We” and “us” means Prosper Funding LLC and any Lending Partner involved in your transaction, and each of its parents, subsidiaries, affiliates, predecessors, successors, and assigns, as well as the officers, directors, and employees of each of them;
(iii) “Claim” means any dispute, claim, or controversy (whether based on contract, tort, intentional tort, constitution, statute, ordinance, common law, or equity, whether pre-existing, present, or future, and whether seeking monetary, injunctive, declaratory, or any other relief) arising from or relating in any way to the Agreement or your relationship with us. The term “Claim” has the broadest possible meaning, and includes initial claims, counterclaims, cross claims, and third-party claims. It includes disputes based upon contract, tort, consumer rights, fraud and other intentional torts, constitution, statute, regulation, ordinance, common law and equity (including any claim for injunctive or declaratory relief). The term “Claim” also includes any dispute related to the scope, validity, or enforceability of this Arbitration Agreement; thus, all such disputes are expressly delegated to an arbitrator for decision, with two exceptions noted below in the sections entitled “Class and Representative Action Waiver” and “Public Injunctive Relief Requests”.
(B) Agreement to Arbitrate. You and we agree that in the event a Claim arises, either you or we may, without the other’s consent, elect to resolve the Claim by binding arbitration. This agreement to arbitrate is binding on both you and us, and applies to all Claims (as defined above) except for those claims mentioned in paragraph (C) below entitled “Non-Arbitrable Claims.”
(C) Non-Arbitrable Claims. This Arbitration Agreement shall not apply to covered borrowers as defined in the Military Lending Act, 10 U.S.C. § 987. Further, this Arbitration Agreement shall not apply to an individual Claim filed by you in a small claims or similar court (if any), so long as the Claim is pending on an individual basis only in such court.
(D) JURY WAIVER AND LIMITATION OF RIGHTS. YOU AND WE AGREE THAT, BY ENTERING INTO THIS ARBITRATION AGREEMENT, THE PARTIES ARE EACH WAIVING THE RIGHT TO A TRIAL BY JURY OR A TRIAL BEFORE A JUDGE IN COURT. YOU AND WE ACKNOWLEDGE THAT ARBITRATION WILL LIMIT OUR LEGAL RIGHTS, INCLUDING THE RIGHT TO PARTICIPATE IN A CLASS ACTION, THE RIGHT TO A JURY TRIAL, THE RIGHT TO CONDUCT FULL DISCOVERY, AND THE RIGHT TO APPEAL (EXCEPT AS PERMITTED IN PARAGRAPH (N) OR UNDER THE FEDERAL ARBITRATION ACT).
(E) Arbitration Forum and Rules. Any Claim shall be resolved, upon the election of either us or you, by binding arbitration administered by the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”) or JAMS, under the applicable arbitration rules of the administrator in effect at the time a Claim is filed (“Rules”). Any arbitration under this Arbitration Agreement will take place on an individual basis; class arbitrations and class actions are not permitted. If you file a claim, you may choose AAA or JAMS as the administrator; if we file a claim, we may choose the administrator, but we agree to change to the other permitted administrator at your request (assuming that the other administrator is available). You can obtain the Rules and other information about initiating arbitration by contacting the American Arbitration Association at 1633 Broadway, 10th Floor, New York, NY 10019, www.adr.org; or by contacting JAMS at 1920 Main Street, Suite 300, Irvine, CA 92614, (949) 224-1810, www.jamsadr.com. Further, to the extent there is any conflict between the Rules and this Arbitration Agreement, this Arbitration Agreement will prevail.
(F) Arbitrator Selection. Claims will be arbitrated by a single, neutral arbitrator, who shall be a retired judge or a lawyer with at least ten years’ experience. The arbitrator shall be selected in accordance with the administrator’s rules.
(G) Arbitration Fees and Expenses. You agree to pay the initial filing fee charged by the administrator for any arbitration you commence, up to a cap of $300. If the initial filing fee is more than $300, we will pay the balance over that amount. We will pay all other fees charged by the administrator or arbitrator, including any filing, administration, and/or arbitrator fees. We will pay the entire initial filing fee if: (1) you claim to be unable to afford it; and (2) you seek but cannot obtain a waiver of that fee from the administrator.
(H) Arbitration Hearing Location. Any in-person arbitration hearing will be held in the county in which you reside, or in such other location as you and we may mutually agree.
(I) Commencing Arbitration. The party electing arbitration must notify the other of such election. This notice may be given before or after a lawsuit has been filed concerning the Claim or with respect to other Claims brought later in the lawsuit, and it may be given by papers filed in the lawsuit such as a motion to compel arbitration. If you elect to initiate arbitration you must notify us in writing. Your notice must be sent to Prosper Marketplace, Inc., 221 Main Street, Suite 300, San Francisco, CA 94105, Attention: Legal Department. If we commence arbitration we will notify you in writing at your last known address on file or, if we do so by moving to compel arbitration in a case you have brought in court, we will notify you by providing service of process as required by the rules of the applicable jurisdiction.
(J) Governing Law. You and we acknowledge and agree that the arbitration agreement set forth in this Arbitration Agreement is made pursuant to a transaction involving interstate commerce, and that the Federal Arbitration Act, 9 U.S.C. § 1-16 (“FAA”), shall govern the interpretation and enforcement of this Arbitration Agreement. The arbitrator shall apply applicable substantive law consistent with FAA and the Governing Law clause of the Agreement. Further, if requested by either party, the arbitrator must provide written reasoned findings of fact and conclusions of law. In the event that a dispute does not proceed to arbitration, the Agreement and all other aspects of your use of the Site shall be governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of the United States and, to the extent state law applies, to the laws of the State of California, without regard to its conflict of laws rules.
(K) Available Relief. Except as set forth below in paragraph (L) (entitled “CLASS ACTION AND REPRESENTATIVE ACTION WAIVER”), the arbitrator shall have the power to award any relief available to a claimant in court under applicable law, including but not limited to equitable and injunctive relief.
(L) CLASS ACTION AND REPRESENTATIVE ACTION WAIVER. YOU AND WE AGREE THAT EACH MAY BRING CLAIMS AGAINST THE OTHER ONLY IN OUR INDIVIDUAL CAPACITY, AND NOT AS A PLAINTIFF OR CLASS MEMBER IN ANY PURPORTED CLASS OR REPRESENTATIVE PROCEEDING. Further, unless both you and we agree otherwise in writing, the arbitrator may not consolidate more than one person’s claims, except that claims brought by joint applicants or co-borrowers relating to the same loan transaction shall be consolidated. The arbitrator shall have no authority to conduct any class, private attorney general or other representative proceeding. The validity, enforceability, and effect of this paragraph (L) shall be determined exclusively by a court, and not by the administrator or any arbitrator. This paragraph does not apply to requests for public injunctive relief, which are addressed in the paragraph below entitled “Public Injunctive Relief Requests.”
(M) PUBLIC INJUNCTIVE RELIEF REQUESTS. If you or we seek public injunctive relief as a remedy for any Claim against one another (a “Public Injunctive Relief Request,”) you and we agree that Public Injunctive Relief Request cannot be arbitrated. Instead, that Public Injunctive Relief Request shall be adjudicated by a court after all other Claims to be decided in arbitration under this Arbitration Agreement are resolved in arbitration. You and we agree to jointly request that the court stay the Public Injunctive Relief request until after the remaining Claims have been finally resolved in arbitration, and that the parties will only seek to lift the stay and request that the court resolve the Public Injunctive Relief Request if an arbitrator finds that one of them is liable for a Claim for which public injunctive relief is an available remedy. The enforceability, validity and effect of this paragraph (M) shall be determined exclusively by a court, and not by the administrator or any arbitrator.
(N) Enforcement and Appeals. Any appropriate court may enter judgment upon the arbitrator’s award. The arbitrator’s decision will be final and binding except that: (1) any party may exercise any appeal right under the FAA; and (2) any party may appeal any award relating to a claim for more than $100,000 to a three-arbitrator panel appointed by the administrator, which will reconsider de novo any aspect of the appealed award. The panel’s decision will be final and binding, except for any appeal right under the FAA. The parties shall bear their own attorneys’ fees and costs of any appeal.
(O) Severability and Survivability. This Arbitration Agreement shall survive: (i) termination or changes in the Agreement or the relationship between you and us concerning the Agreement; and (ii) the bankruptcy of any party. If any portion of this Arbitration Agreement (except for paragraph (L) above) is deemed invalid or unenforceable for any reason, it shall not invalidate the remaining portions of this Arbitration Agreement. However, if paragraph (L) of this Arbitration Agreement is deemed invalid or unenforceable in whole or in part, then this entire Arbitration Agreement shall be deemed invalid and unenforceable.
(P) Opt-Out Right. You understand that you may reject the provisions of this Arbitration Agreement, in which case neither we nor you will have the right to elect arbitration. Rejection of this Arbitration Agreement will not affect the remaining parts of the Agreement. To reject this Arbitration Agreement, you must send us written notice of your rejection within 30 days after the date that the Agreement was made. You must include your name, address, and account number. The notice of rejection must be mailed to Prosper Marketplace, Inc., 221 Main Street, Suite 300, San Francisco, CA 94105, Attention: Legal Department. This is the only way that you can reject this Arbitration Agreement.
(Q) Pre-Dispute Notice. You agree that you will notify Prosper in writing of any claim or dispute concerning or relating to the Site and the information or services provided through it, and give Prosper a reasonable period of time to address it BEFORE bringing any legal action, either individually, as a class member or representative, or as a private attorney general, against Prosper.
(R) Amendment. The Change-In-Terms Section above does not apply to this Arbitration Agreement. Instead, the following terms apply to amendment of this Arbitration Agreement. You and we agree that we have the right to amend this Arbitration Agreement, and that if we make any amendment to this Arbitration Agreement (other than an amendment to any notice address or website link provided herein), that amendment shall be effective upon our provision of written notice to you. We will notify you of amendments to this Arbitration Agreement by providing notice via email to your registered email address. You agree to notify Prosper if your registered email address changes. Any amendment shall not apply to any claim against us that accrued prior to the effective date of the amendment. Instead, the amendment shall apply to all other disputes or claims governed by this Arbitration Agreement that have arisen or may arise between you and us. If you do not agree to these amended terms, you may reject the amended Arbitration Agreement and you will not be bound by it. To reject the amended terms, you must send us written notice of your rejection within 30 days after the date Prosper provided notice of the amendment. You must include your name, address, and account number. The notice of rejection must be mailed to Prosper Marketplace, Inc., 221 Main Street, Suite 300, San Francisco, CA 94105, Attention: Legal Department. This is the only way that you can reject amendments to this Arbitration Agreement.
This Agreement shall be subject to any other agreements you have entered into with Prosper.
Certain sections or pages on the Site may contain separate terms and conditions of use, which are in addition to the terms and conditions of this Agreement. In the event of a conflict, the additional terms and conditions will govern for those sections or pages.
If any provision of this Agreement is found to be invalid or unenforceable, the remaining provisions shall be enforced to the fullest extent possible, and the remaining provisions of the Agreement shall remain in full force and effect.
If you believe, in good faith, that any materials on the Site infringe your copyrights, notifications of claimed copyright infringement should be sent to Prosper’s designated agent. Notification should include:
