- Scope of Bridgit Services
1.1 The Bridgit Platform is an online marketplace that enables registered users (“Members”) and certain third parties who offer food goods (Members and third parties who offer food goods are “Merchants” and the food goods they offer are “Merchant Boxes”) to publish such Merchant Boxes on the Bridgit Platform (“Listings”) and to communicate and transact directly with Members that are seeking to purchase such Meal Boxes (Members purchasing Meal Boxes are “Customers”). Merchants can be, but are not limited to restaurants, food service providers, vendors, and chefs.
1.2 Bridgit itself is not a Merchant and does not own, operate or control any of the Merchant facilities accessible through the Bridgit Platform. Merchants alone are responsible for their Listings and Meal Boxes. When Members make or accept a listing, they are entering into a contract directly with each other. Bridgit is not and does not become a party to or other participant in any contractual relationship between Members, nor is Bridgit a insurer. Bridgit is not acting as an agent in any capacity for any Member, except as specified in the Payment Terms.

Bridgit does not endorse any Member, Listing or Meal Boxes. Any description of a Merchant is not an endorsement, certification or guarantee by Bridgit about any Member, including of the Member’s identity or background or whether the Member is trustworthy, safe or suitable. You should always exercise due diligence and care when deciding whether to purchase a Meal Box or to communicate and interact with other Members, whether online or in person.
1.4 If you choose to use the Bridgit Platform as a Merchant, your relationship with Bridgit is limited to being an independent, third-party contractor, and not an employee, agent, joint venturer or partner of Bridgit for any reason, and you act exclusively on your own behalf and for your own benefit, and not on behalf, or for the benefit, of Bridgit.

- ARBITRATION AGREEMENT
PLEASE READ THE FOLLOWING CAREFULLY:
This Arbitration Agreement facilitates the prompt and efficient resolution of any disputes that may arise between you and Bridgit. Arbitration is a form of private dispute resolution in which parties to a contract agree to submit their disputes and potential disputes to a neutral third person (called an arbitrator) for a binding decision, instead of having such dispute(s) decided in a lawsuit, in court, by a judge or jury trial. You have the right to opt-out of this Arbitration Agreement (as explained below), which means you would retain your right to litigate your disputes in a court, either before a judge or jury.
It provides that all disputes between you and Bridgit shall be resolved by binding arbitration. Arbitration replaces the right to go to court. In the absence of this arbitration agreement, you may otherwise have a right or opportunity to bring claims in a court, before a judge or jury, and/or to participate in or be represented in a case filed in court by others (including, but not limited to, class actions). Except as otherwise provided, entering into this Arbitration Agreement constitutes a waiver of your right to litigate claims in court and all opportunity to be heard by a judge or jury. There is no judge or jury in arbitration, and court review of an arbitration award is limited. The arbitrator must follow this Arbitration Agreement and can award the same damages and relief as a court (including attorney’s fees).
For the purpose of this Arbitration Agreement, “Bridgit” means Bridgit and its parents, subsidiaries, and affiliated companies, and each of their respective officers, directors, employees, and agents. “Dispute” means any dispute, claim, or controversy between you and Bridgit regarding any aspect of your relationship with Bridgit, whether based in contract, statute, regulation, ordinance, tort (including, but not limited to, fraud, misrepresentation, fraudulent
inducement, negligence, gross negligence or reckless behavior), or any other legal or equitable theory, and includes the validity, enforceability or scope of this Arbitration Agreement (with the exception of the enforceability of the Class Action Waiver clause below). “Dispute” is to be given the broadest possible meaning that will be enforced.
WE EACH AGREE THAT, EXCEPT AS PROVIDED BELOW, ANY AND ALL DISPUTES, AS DEFINED ABOVE, WHETHER PRESENTLY IN EXISTENCE OR BASED ON ACTS OR OMISSIONS IN THE PAST OR IN THE FUTURE, WILL BE RESOLVED EXCLUSIVELY AND FINALLY BY BINDING ARBITRATION RATHER THAN IN COURT IN ACCORDANCE WITH THIS ARBITRATION AGREEMENT.
19.1 Pre-Arbitration Dispute Resolution
For all Disputes, whether pursued in court or arbitration, you must first give Bridgit an opportunity to resolve the Dispute. You must commence this process by mailing written notification to Bridgit, Legal Department, 3585 NE 207 ST C-9 #801432 AVENTURA, FL 33280. That written notification must include (1) your name, (2) your address, (3) a written description of the Dispute, and (4) a description of the specific relief you seek. If Bridgit does not resolve the Dispute to your satisfaction within 45 days after it receives your written notification, you may pursue your Dispute in arbitration. You may pursue your Dispute in a court only under the circumstances described below.
19.2 Exclusions From Arbitration And Your Right To Opt Out
Notwithstanding the above, you may choose to pursue a Dispute in court and not by arbitration if (a) the Dispute qualifies, it may be initiated in small claims court in your state of residence; or (b) YOU OPT-OUT OF THESE ARBITRATION PROCEDURES WITHIN 30 DAYS FROM THE DATE THAT YOU FIRST CONSENT TO THIS AGREEMENT (the “Opt-Out Deadline”). You may opt out of this Arbitration Agreement by mailing written notification to Bridgit, Legal Department, 3585 NE 207 ST C-9 #801432 AVENTURA, FL 33280. Your written notification must include (1) your name, (2) your address, and (3) a clear statement that you do not wish to resolve disputes with Bridgit through arbitration. Your decision to opt-out of this Arbitration Agreement will have no adverse effect on your relationship with Bridgit. Any opt-out request received after the Opt-Out Deadline will not be valid and you must pursue your Dispute in arbitration or small claims court.
19.3 Arbitration Procedures
If this Arbitration Agreement applies and the Dispute is not resolved as provided above (“Pre-Arbitration Claim Resolution”) either you or Bridgit may initiate arbitration proceedings. The American Arbitration Association (“AAA”), www.adr.org, or JAMS, www.jamsadr.com, will arbitrate all Disputes, and the arbitration will be conducted before a single arbitrator. The arbitration shall be commenced as an individual arbitration, and shall in no event be commenced as a class arbitration. All issues shall be for the arbitrator to decide, including the scope of this Arbitration Agreement. For arbitration before the AAA, for Disputes of less than $75,000, the AAA’s Supplementary Procedures for Consumer-Related Disputes will apply; for Disputes involving $75,000 or more, the AAA’s Commercial Arbitration Rules will apply. In either instance, the AAA’s Optional Rules For Emergency Measures Of Protection shall apply.
19.4 Arbitration Award
The arbitrator may award on an individual basis any relief that would be available pursuant to applicable law, and will not have the power to award relief to, against or for the benefit of any person who is not a party to the proceeding. The arbitrator shall make any award in writing but need not provide a statement of reasons unless requested by a party. Such award by the arbitrator will be final and binding on the parties, except for any right of appeal provided by the FAA, and may be entered in any court having jurisdiction over the parties for purposes of enforcement.
19.5 Location of Arbitration
You may initiate arbitration in either Miami, Florida or in the federal judicial district that includes your address that you provide in your written notification of Pre-Arbitration Dispute Resolution. In the event that Bridgit initiates an arbitration, it may only do so in the federal judicial district that includes your address that you provide in your written notification of Pre-Arbitration Dispute Resolution.
19.6 Payment of Arbitration Fees and Costs
Bridgit will pay all arbitration filing fees and arbitrator’s costs and expenses upon your written request given prior to the commencement of the arbitration. You are responsible for all additional fees and costs that you incur in the arbitration, including, but not limited to, attorneys or expert witnesses. Fees and costs may be awarded as provided pursuant to applicable law. In addition to any rights to recover fees and costs under applicable law, if you provide notice and negotiate in good faith with Bridgit as provided in the section above titled “Pre-Arbitration Dispute Resolution” and the arbitrator concludes that you are the prevailing party in the arbitration, you will be entitled to recover from Bridgit your actual and reasonable attorney’s fees and costs as determined by the arbitrator.
19.7 Class Action Waiver
Except as otherwise provided in this Arbitration Agreement, the arbitrator may not consolidate more than one person’s claims, and may not otherwise preside over any form of a class or representative proceeding or claims (such as a class action, representative action, consolidated action or private attorney general action) unless both you and Bridgit specifically agree to do so following initiation of the arbitration. If you choose to pursue your Dispute in court by opting out of this Arbitration Agreement as specified above, this Class Action Waiver will not apply to you. Neither you, nor any other Member of Bridgit and/or user of Bridgit services, can be a class representative, class member, or otherwise participate in a class, representative, consolidated or private attorney general proceeding without having complied with the opt-out requirements above.
19.8 Limitation of Procedural Rights
You understand and agree that, by entering into this Arbitration Agreement, you and Bridgit are each agreeing to arbitration instead of the right to a trial before a judge or jury in a public court. In the absence of this Arbitration Agreement, you and Bridgit might otherwise have had a right or opportunity to bring Disputes in a court, before a judge or jury, and/or to participate or be represented in a case filed in court by others (including class actions). Except as otherwise provided below, you give up those rights. Other rights that you would have if you went to court, such as the right to appeal and to certain types of discovery, may be more limited in arbitration. The right to appellate review of an arbitrator’s decision is much more limited than in court, and in general an arbitrator’s decision may not be appealed for errors of fact or law.
If any clause within this Arbitration Agreement (other than the Class Action Waiver clause above) is found to be illegal or unenforceable, that clause will be severed from this Arbitration Agreement, and the remainder of this Arbitration Agreement will be given full force and effect. If the Class Action Waiver clause is found to be illegal or unenforceable, then this entire Arbitration Agreement will be unenforceable and the Dispute will be decided by a court.
This Arbitration Agreement shall survive the termination of your contract with Bridgit and your use of the Bridgit Site and services.
20.1 These Terms shall be governed in all respects by the laws of the State of Florida, without regard to conflict of law provisions. You agree that any claim or dispute you may have against Bridgit must be resolved by a court located in Florida, except as otherwise agreed by the parties or as described in the Arbitration Agreement paragraph above. You agree to submit to the personal jurisdiction of the courts located within Miami, Florida for the purpose of litigating all such claims or disputes.
20.2 We may assign our rights and obligations under these Terms. These Terms are binding and shall inure to the benefit of our successors, assigns and licensees.
20.3 The heading references herein are for convenience purposes only, do not constitute a part of these Terms, and will not be deemed to limit or affect any of the provisions hereof.
20.4 If any provision of these Terms shall be unlawful, void, or for any reason unenforceable, then that provision will be deemed severable from these Terms and will not affect the validity and enforceability of any remaining provisions.
20.5 These Terms and any applicable Additional Terms, as each may be amended as set forth herein, are the entire agreement between you and Bridgit relating to the subject matter herein.
The services hereunder are offered by Bridgit, Inc, located at: 3585 NE 207 ST C-9 #801432 AVENTURA, FL 33280 and email: firstname.lastname@example.org.

20.6 No waiver of any of these Terms by Bridgit is binding unless authorized in writing by an executive officer of Bridgit. In the event that Bridgit waives a breach of any provision of these Terms, such waiver will not be construed as a continuing waiver of other breaches of the same nature or other provisions of these Terms and will in no manner affect the right of Bridgit to enforce the same at a later time.
