Any claim or controversy arising out of or relating to the use of the Website, to the goods or services provided by Should I Refi.com, or to any acts or omissions for which you may contend we are liable, including but not limited to any claim or controversy as to arbitrability ("Dispute"), shall be finally, and exclusively, settled by arbitration. The arbitration shall be held before one arbitrator under the commercial arbitration rules of the American Arbitration Association ("AAA") in force at that time. The arbitration shall be venued in Ramsey County, Minnesota, unless otherwise dictated by applicable state statute. The arbitrator shall be selected pursuant to the AAA rules. Should no AAA rule regarding the selection of an arbitrator be in effect, the consumer shall select an arbitrator from a panel of arbitrators acceptable to Should I Refi.com. In any arbitration, we will pay the filing fee, plus the costs associated with the first day of arbitration, with the remaining costs of arbitration paid by the non-prevailing party, unless otherwise dictated by applicable statutes.

By using Should I Refi.com’s goods, facilities and services, you consent to these restrictions.
Should a Dispute arise and should the arbitration provisions herein become inapplicable or unenforceable, or in any instance of any lawsuit between you and Should I Refi.com, the parties agree that jurisdiction over and venue of any suit shall be exclusively in the state and federal courts sitting in Ramsey County Minnesota. If either party employs attorneys to enforce any right in connection with any Dispute or lawsuit, the prevailing party shall be entitled to recover reasonable attorneys' fees.
