If you do not meet all of these requirements, you must not access or use the Services.

Please note that the section titled “Consumer Protection Notice” includes important limitations on the applicability of these Terms of Use.

Changes to the Terms of Use

We may revise and update these Terms of Use from time to time at our sole discretion. All changes are effective immediately when we post them, and apply to all access to and use of the Services thereafter. Any changes to the dispute resolution provisions set forth in Governing Law and Jurisdiction, however, will not apply to any disputes for which the parties have actual notice on or prior to the date the change is posted on via the Services.

Your continued use of the Services following the posting of revised Terms of Use means that you accept and agree to the changes. You are expected to check this page frequently so you remain aware of any changes, as they are binding on you.

Accessing the Websites and Account Security

We reserve the right to withdraw or amend the Services, and any service or material we provide on the Services, in our sole discretion without notice. We will not be liable if for any reason all or any part of the Services is unavailable at any time or for any period.

Please note that the section titled “Consumer Protection Notice” includes important limitations on the applicability of these Terms of Use.

Governing Law and Jurisdiction

All matters relating to the Services and these Terms of Use and any dispute or claim arising therefrom or related thereto (in each case, including non-contractual disputes or claims), shall be governed by and construed in accordance with the internal laws of the State of Rhode Island without giving effect to any choice or conflict of law provision or rule (whether of the State of Rhode Island or any other jurisdiction).

Any legal suit, action or proceeding arising out of, or related to, these Terms of Use or the Services shall be instituted exclusively in the federal courts of the United States located in the State of Rhode Island or the courts of the State of Rhode Island, although we retain the right to bring any suit, action or proceeding against you for breach of these Terms of Use in your state or country of residence or any other relevant state or country. You waive any and all objections to the exercise of jurisdiction over you by such courts and to venue in such courts.

ANY CAUSE OF ACTION OR CLAIM YOU MAY HAVE ARISING OUT OF OR RELATING TO THESE TERMS OF USE OR THE SERVICES MUST BE COMMENCED WITHIN ONE (1) YEAR AFTER THE CAUSE OF ACTION ACCRUES, OTHERWISE, SUCH CAUSE OF ACTION OR CLAIM IS PERMANENTLY BARRED.

Arbitration Provision; Class Action Waiver

In order to expedite and control the cost of disputes, you and Amica agree that any legal or equitable claim relating to these Terms or use of the Services, or any offering provided or obtained using the Services, (referred to as a “Claim”) will be resolved as follows:

AInformal Resolution:

You and Amica will first attempt to resolve any Claim informally. In the event that any dispute between Amica and you arises out of or relates to the Terms of Use, the applicability of the Terms of Use to the use of the Services, or to breach or enforcement, interpretation or validity of the Terms of Use, you and Amica agree to try to promptly resolve any such dispute informally. Please send a written notice describing the dispute to Amica Mutual Insurance Company, Attn: Office of General Counsel, 100 Amica Way, Lincoln, RI 02865.

B. Formal Resolution by Arbitration/Class Action Waiver:

READ THE FOLLOWING ARBITRATION PROVISION CAREFULLY, IT LIMITS YOUR RIGHTS, INCLUDING THE RIGHT TO MAINTAIN A COURT ACTION. You agree that any dispute, controversy or Claim arising out of or relating to the Terms of Use, the applicability of the Terms of Use to the use of the Services, or to breach or enforcement, interpretation or validity of the Terms of Use, or the determination of the scope or applicability of arbitration shall be governed solely by the Federal Arbitration Act.

If you and Amica cannot resolve a Claim informally, any Claim asserted by either party will be resolved only by binding arbitration (“Arbitration”). By agreeing to Arbitration, both you and Amica understand and agree that all disputes shall be decided by a single arbitrator and that you are waiving your rights to maintain other available resolution processes, such as a court action or administrative proceeding, to settle disputes. Instead of suing in court, both you and Amica each agree to settle disputes (except certain small claims) only by Arbitration. ARBITRATION MEANS THAT YOU WAIVE YOUR RIGHT TO A JURY TRIAL. The rules in Arbitration are different. There is no judge or jury, and review is limited, but an arbitrator can award the same damages and relief, and must honor the same limitations stated in these Terms of Use as a court would.

The Arbitration will be conducted under the American Arbitration Association Consumer Arbitration Rules (referred to as the “AAA Rules”) and under the rules set forth in these Terms of Use. If there is a conflict between AAA Rules and the rules set forth in these Terms of Use, the rules set forth in these Terms of Use will govern. You may, in Arbitration, seek any and all remedies otherwise available to you pursuant to the law of the State of Rhode Island. If you decide to initiate Arbitration, Amica agrees to pay the Arbitration initiation fee and any additional required deposit required by AAA to initiate your Arbitration. You and Amica agree to pay the costs of the Arbitration proceeding provided however that if you are a consumer you shall not be required to pay more than $250.00 of the fees or such amount as the AAA Rules may later prescribe. All other fees, such as attorneys’ fees and expenses of travel to the Arbitration, will be paid in accordance with AAA Rules. The Arbitration will be held at a location in your home town area if possible, unless you and Amica both agree to another location or telephonic Arbitration. To initiate Arbitration, you or Amica must:

1. Write a demand for Arbitration. The demand must include a description of the Claim and the amount of damages sought to be recovered (“Demand for Arbitration”). You can file a demand at adr.org.

2. Send one copy of the Demand for Arbitration to the other party.

Waiver and Severability

No waiver by Amica of any term or condition set forth in these Terms of Use shall be deemed a further or continuing waiver of such term or condition or a waiver of any other term or condition, and any failure of Amica to assert a right or provision under these Terms of Use shall not constitute a waiver of such right or provision.

If any provision of these Terms of Use is held by a court or other tribunal of competent jurisdiction to be invalid, illegal or unenforceable for any reason, such provision shall be eliminated or limited to the minimum extent such that the remaining provisions of the Terms of Use will continue in full force and effect.

Consumer Protection Notice

Please note that, if you are a consumer, the limitations in these Terms of Use are intended to be only as broad and inclusive as is permitted by the laws of your state of residence.

If you are a New Jersey consumer, the terms of the sections titled “Disclaimer,” “Limitation on Liability,” and “Indemnification” do not limit or waive your rights under New Jersey law and the limitations in these Terms of Use are intended to be only as broad and inclusive as is permitted by the laws of the State of New Jersey.

Subject to the foregoing, we reserve all rights, defenses and permissible limitations under the laws of the State of New Jersey and under the laws of your state of residence.
