***IMPORTANT***

IT IS YOUR SOLE RESPONSIBILITY to ensure full disclosure of all vehicle details, condition information, history records, and adherence to all steps in the WhipFlip Quote, Offer, and Appointment Booking process are accurately completed. If it is determined from either an in-person inspection or any other method that there is a deviation from any of the terms set forth in our Quotes & Offers Disclaimer or the customers vehicle is misrepresented in any way, WhipFlip may adjust at its sole discretion any Quote or Offer, up to and including termination of any non-binding or binding Offer.

You acknowledge and herby agree that our website utilizes specific technology features and third-party providers to provide a quick and seamless vehicle selling experience to its customers. Although it is expected to be a rare occurrence, these certain technology elements may go offline, produce inaccurate results or calculations, or underperform which could deliver inaccurate Quote or Offer values to its customers. WhipFlip will make a reasonable effort to remedy this situation with you but reserves the right to adjust or rescind any Quote or Offer made in its sole discretion, without penalty or any liability.

In addition, you acknowledge and hereby agree that WhipFlip operates within the automotive resale market, which at times can be volatile, and unpredictable at any time, for any reason.

WhipFlip makes reasonable efforts to ensure your use of the Services is safe. WhipFlip does not represent or warrant that the Services will be available all of the time or free of viruses or other harmful components.

To the extent legally permissible, any and all of the Services and Content are provided “AS-IS”, “WITH ALL-FAULTS”, AND “AS AVAILABLE”.

You expressly agree that use of the Services, content, and submissions are at your sole risk. WhipFlip and its Representatives and our third-party service providers do not represent or warrant that the Content or submissions are accurate, complete, reliable, current, or error-free.

In addition, in no event shall WhipFlip or its Representatives be liable to you or any third party for any consequences to you or others that may result from technical problems or errors or for any decision made or action taken by you or any other party in connection with the Services. Some jurisdictions do not allow the exclusions or limitations set forth above, in which case, the full extent of the above exclusions and limitations may not apply.

11. Limitation of Liability

To the extent permitted by law, in no event will WhipFlip or the WhipFlip Representatives be liable to you or to any third party for: (1) indirect, consequential, special, incidental, exemplary, or punitive damages, under any legal theory (including, without limitation, by tort, negligence, contract, or other), arising from or connected to the Services, Terms, Content, or Privacy Policy; (2) any costs of procuring any substitute goods, technology, or services; or (3) any damages whatsoever that in the aggregate exceed the greater of (a) the amount actually paid by you (if any) to WhipFlip for use of the applicable Services in the immediately previous twelve (12) month period or (b) US $100.00.

You agree not to settle any matter subject to an indemnification by you without first obtaining WhipFlip’s prior express written approval.

13. Arbitration Agreement and Class Action Waiver (Please thoroughly read as this pertains to your rights.)

In the unlikely event of a dispute, this is what happens. The process and selection of remedy will be:

  • Agreement to Arbitrate

    Most customer concerns can be resolved by calling our customer service department at (302) 287-3665, our “Contact Us” form on our Website, or emailing support@whipflip.com .

    However, in the event that you and WhipFlip are unable to resolve any dispute or claim with one another, you and WhipFlip each agree to resolve any and all disputes and claims through binding individual arbitration, unless you expressly reject this arbitration provision in writing and within 30 days in accordance with subsection (J) below. “Disputes and claims” shall be broadly construed to include past, current, and/or future claims that relate in any way to these Terms, your use of the Services, and/or rights of privacy and/or publicity. However, to the extent you have in any manner violated or threatened to violate our intellectual property rights, we may seek injunctive or other appropriate relief in any state or federal court in the State of Delaware.

  • Class Action Waiver

    You and WhipFlip each waive the right to a trial by jury or to participate in a class action. Any arbitration under this provision will take place on an individual basis — Class arbitrations and class actions are not permitted. You also agree not to participate in claims against WhipFlip brought in a private attorney general or representative capacity, or consolidated claims involving another person’s account. However, either party may bring an individual action in small claims court. If, however, you or we transfer or appeal the small claim to a different court, we reserve our right to elect arbitration.

  • General Information

    Arbitration is more informal than a lawsuit in court. Arbitration uses a neutral arbitrator instead of a judge or jury, allows for more limited discovery, and is subject to limited review by courts. Arbitrators can award the same damages and relief that a court can award, including attorneys’ fees where permitted by law

  • Notice of Arbitration

    A party seeking arbitration must first send to the other, by certified mail, a written notice of dispute (“Notice”). The Notice to WhipFlip should be addressed to WhipFlip, Inc., Attn: Legal, 228 Goldfinch Turn, Newark, DE 19711. The Notice must: (i) describe the nature and basis of the claim or dispute; and (ii) set forth the specific relief sought (“Demand”). If you and WhipFlip cannot resolve the Demand within 30 days after the Notice is received, you or WhipFlip may commence an arbitration proceeding. During the arbitration, the amount of any settlement offer made by WhipFlip or you shall not be disclosed to the arbitrator until after the arbitrator determines the amount, if any, that you or WhipFlip is entitled to.

  • Administrator

    The arbitration shall be administered by (i) JAMS, pursuant to its Comprehensive Arbitration Rules and Procedures and in accordance with its expedited procedures contained in those rules, or (ii) American Arbitration Association in accordance with its Consumer Arbitration Rules. If you initiate the arbitration, you may choose one of the above administrators. If WhipFlip initiates arbitration, we will give you 20 days to choose the administrator. If you do not choose the administrator within that time frame, we will choose one. If the administrator a party chooses is unable or unwilling or ceases to serve as the administrator, then you or WhipFlip may choose the other administrator. If neither administrator is able or willing to serve as the administrator, the parties will mutually select an administrator, which must be a lawyer or retired judge with at least 15 years of legal experience.

  • Venue

    Any arbitration hearing that you attend must take place at a location reasonably convenient to your residence.

  • Expenses

    You and WhipFlip will bear the administrator and arbitrator fees that each party is normally required to pay under the rules and law applicable to the proceeding. Each party will bear the expense of its own attorneys, experts, and witnesses, except where applicable law and/or the Agreement allows a party to recover attorney’s fees from the other party.

  • Governing Law

    The Federal Arbitration Act (“FAA”) governs this arbitration agreement. The arbitrator shall apply applicable substantive law consistent with the FAA and applicable statutes of limitations and claims of privilege. The arbitrator shall not apply federal or state rules of civil procedure or evidence. The arbitrator will not have authority to award damages, remedies, or awards that conflict with these Terms, unless otherwise provided by applicable law.

    Either party may make a timely request for a brief written explanation of the basis for the arbitration award. Judgment on the arbitrator’s award may be entered in any court with jurisdiction. Otherwise, the award and the arbitration proceeding shall be kept confidential. The arbitrator's decision is final and binding, except for any right of appeal provided by the FAA. Either party can appeal the award to a three-arbitrator panel administered by the administrator. The costs of such appeal will be borne by the appealing party unless applicable law or the administrator’s rules provide otherwise.

  • Survival & Severability

    This arbitration provision survives the termination of your relationship with WhipFlip and/or your use of the Services. In the event of a conflict between this arbitration provision and the applicable arbitration rules or other provisions of the Terms, or any other agreement between us, this arbitration provision will govern any Dispute or Claim between you and WhipFlip, as defined in these Terms.

    If a court or arbitrator deems any part of this arbitration provision invalid or unenforceable under any law or statute consistent with the FAA, the remaining parts of this arbitration provision shall be enforceable despite such invalidity; however, if the prohibition of class relief and proceedings in subsection (B) is found to be unenforceable or void in any proceeding, then this entire arbitration provision (except for this sentence) shall be null and void with respect to such proceeding, subject to the right to appeal such limitation or voiding.

  • Opting Out

    In order to reject this provision, WhipFlip must receive a signed writing (“Rejection Notice”) from you within 30 days of the date that you first accept these Terms (unless a longer period is required by applicable law). The Rejection Notice must include your (i) name, (ii) account number or username, (iii) mailing address, and (iv) a statement that you do not wish to resolve disputes with WhipFlip through arbitration, and must be mailed to WhipFlip, Inc., Attn: Legal, 228 Goldfinch Turn, Newark, DE 19711 via certified mail, return receipt requested. Rejecting the arbitration provision will not affect any other aspect of the Terms, nor will it affect any other existing or future arbitration agreement between you and WhipFlip.

14. Changes to the Website, Services, or Terms

WhipFlip reserves the right to make changes to its Services and/or Terms at any time and for any reason, so please re-visit this page frequently. If WhipFlip makes material changes to the Terms, then WhipFlip will notify you either by email or by posting a notice on the Services. All changes are effective as of the date indicated at the top of this page ( “Last Updated”), and your continued use of the Services after the indicated date will constitute acceptance to be bound by those changes. If WhipFlip, in its reasonable discretion, believes that any of the Services or Terms must be amended in order to comply with any legal requirements, the amendments may take effect immediately or as required by law and without any prior notice. WhipFlip reserves the right to stop, temporarily or permanently, the operation of any and all Services without notice, on a general or specific basis, at any time.

15. U.S. Government Matters

By using the Services, you represent and warrant that you are not located in any such country or on any such list. You will not engage in activity that would cause us to be in violation of these laws and regulations, and will indemnify WhipFlip for any fines, penalties or other liabilities incurred by us for your failure to comply with this provision.

16. General

These Terms constitute the entire agreement between you and WhipFlip, Inc. regarding your use of any and all of the Services as detailed herein and supersedes any prior agreements between you and WhipFlip relating to such use.

  • These Terms are governed by the laws of the State of Delaware, without regard to its conflicts of law rules, and the United States of America.
  • These Terms do not, and shall not be construed to create any relationship, partnership, joint venture, employer-employee, agency, or franchisor-franchisee relationship between you and WhipFlip.
  • Any heading, caption, section title or summaries contained in these Terms is inserted only as a matter of convenience and shall not affect their interpretation. Any use of “including” “for example” or “such as” in these Terms shall be read as being followed by “without limitation” where appropriate.
  • The failure of either party to exercise or enforce any right or provision of these Terms or any prior version of these Terms shall not constitute a waiver of such right or provision in that or any other instance. If any provision of these Terms shall be deemed unlawful, void or for any reason unenforceable, then that provision shall be amended as possible to comply with the applicable law. This shall not affect the validity and enforceability of any remaining provisions.
  • We may assign any right or obligation under the Terms without restriction, but you may do so only after receiving our express written consent. Any amendment to the Terms must be done in writing and signed by WhipFlip and you. All correspondence between you and WhipFlip shall be in English.
  • You shall and hereby do waive California Civil Code Section 1542 or any similar law of any jurisdiction, which says in substance: “A general release does not extend to claims which the creditor does not know or suspect to exist in his or her favor at the time of executing the release, which if known by him or her must have materially affected his or her settlement with the debtor.”
