Friends, Skilled Service, and Seekers are collectively referred to as “Members.” Friends and Skilled Service Providers may sign up for a membership to the Service free of charge and earn money by acting as friends or a Skilled Service Provider to Seekers. Seekers may pay a fee to Friends and/or Skilled Service who are willing to become friends or Skilled Service providers to the Members.

  • 21. Arbitration Provision/No Class Action Should we ever have any differences, it is hoped that we could work them out amicably through e-mail correspondence.  However; if we are unable to find resolution within a reasonable time, you agree now that that the only method of legal dispute resolution is binding arbitration before a single arbitrator, selected jointly, in accordance with the American Arbitration Association Rules.  Prior to seeking arbitration, you must send an e-mail to us at info@rentbefriend.com and include all of your reasons for dissatisfaction with the service. You understand and agree now that the only remedy that can be awarded to you through arbitration is a full refund of your most recent payment made to date.  No other actions or financial awards of consequential damages, or any other type of damages, may be granted to you.  We both agree now that the decision of the arbitrator is final and binding. You also agree that should arbitration take place, it will be held in or as near as possible, Petersburg, Virginia. The parties shall split the arbitration and/or mediator costs. An award rendered by the arbitrator(s) may be entered and confirmed by the courts of the Commonwealth of Virginia, Independent City of Petersburg, or the United States District Court for the Eastern District of Virginia. You agree that any and all disputes, claims or causes of action (collectively, "Claim") arising out of or related to the Websites and/or Service, shall be resolved individually, without resort to any form of class action, except where prohibited by law.
