If You submit a Transaction, You are requesting that we process Your Transaction, an offer which we may accept or reject at our sole discretion from our principal place of business in Miami, Florida.
A. Charges. For each Transaction that You submit, You agree to pay us a Transaction Fee plus the Transaction Amount. Additional charges may apply. Payment in U.S. Dollars, only, is due at the time Your Transaction is submitted for processing. If You submit a Transaction that results in Intermex being charged non-sufficient fund fees, chargeback fees, or other similar fees, You agree to reimburse us for all such fees immediately upon request. For Transactions funded from the Sender's bank account, You agree that Intermex may from time to time debit Your bank account for less than the amount of the transfer (for example, for a transfer of $500, Intermex may debit $499.98 from the bank account), as part of our effort to confirm ownership of the account.
B. Payment Authorization. In order for us to collect payment from You, You authorize us to access, charge or debit funds from any of the Payment Instruments You provide us in connection with Your use of the Service including, for example, Your credit card, debit card, or bank account. We do not accept prepaid payment cards as a Payment Instrument. If Your payment fails or is insufficient, we may re-try debiting Your Payment Instrument one or more times or You may authorize us to try debiting a different Payment Instrument. For example, if there are insufficient funds in Your bank account at the time You submit Your Transaction, we may try to debit Your bank account or charge Your credit card at a later time. You represent and warrant that You are the lawful owner of Your Payment Instrument(s).
C. Other Charges For Which You May Be Responsible. Intermex is not responsible for any fees or charges that may be imposed by the financial institutions associated with Your Payment Instruments. For example (without limitation), Your credit card issuer may charge You a cash advance fee and interest if You use a credit card as a Payment Instrument. Intermex is not responsible for any such fees, nor are we responsible for non-sufficient funds charges, chargeback fees or other similar charges that might be imposed on You by Your bank, credit card issuer or other provider in connection with Your use of the Service.
D. Foreign Exchange. All currency exchanged under the money transfer service is received by Intermex at a rate of exchange. Currency is offered to Sender at the rate of exchange specified on the receipt, and the Recipient will receive the foreign currency amount specified on the receipt. Any difference between the currency exchange rate offered to Sender and the currency exchange rate received by Intermex is property of Intermex. If the Recipient chooses to receive a currency other than the one on Your Receipt, Intermex is not responsible for the exchange rate applied.
E. Confirmation of Currency. Intermex and its Service Providers usually make money when You pay for a Transaction in one currency and the Transaction is paid out in another currency, which is based on the difference between the exchange rate at which we buy foreign currency and the exchange rate provided to You. You agree, when You send a Transaction to a Recipient's bank account, that the bank account is denominated in the same currency as the Transaction (e.g., if Your Transaction calls for Intermex to deposit pesos into the Recipient's bank account, then You confirm that the Recipient's bank account is denominated in pesos).
5. Transaction Payouts
A. Appointment of Agent. We work with Service Providers to pay funds out to Recipients and Service Companies. You, in Your capacity as a Sender, hereby appoint Your Recipient as Your agent for the purpose of receiving funds in connection with the Service.
B. Hours of Service Providers. We attempt to provide up-to-date information on our websites regarding the location, availability and hours of our Service Providers. However, You agree that Intermex is not responsible for any inaccurate or incomplete information that may be posted on its websites.
C. Verification. Recipients may be required to prove their identity before receiving funds by presenting valid, unexpired identification document(s) from a list of acceptable forms of identification. In addition, Recipients may be required to provide a Transaction number and/or another, similar identifier associated with their Transaction.
D. Data Collection, Storage and Accuracy. You give Intermex permission to contact Your Recipient or the Service Company and store all such data, as necessary to provide the Service.

7. Dispute Resolution: Agreement to Arbitrate Disputes
A. Agreement to Arbitrate Disputes. This section of the User Agreement shall be referred to as the “Agreement to Arbitrate Disputes.” This Agreement to Arbitrate Disputes shall be deemed a contract entered into under the law of the State of Florida and will be governed by the laws of the State of Florida together with the Federal Arbitration Act (9 U.S.C. §§ 1-16) (the “FAA”).
B. Time of Acceptance of Agreement to Arbitrate Disputes. Your agreement with Intermex to arbitrate disputes starts when You accept the terms and conditions of this User Agreement. You accept the terms and conditions of this User Agreement by doing any of the following: (i) receiving this User Agreement and Agreement to Arbitrate Disputes and not opting out within 14 days of receipt; ; (ii) giving us a written or electronic signature, or telling us orally that You accept; (iii) using the Service; (iv) Sending a Payment through the Service as a Sender; (v) Receiving a Payment using the Service as a Recipient; or (vi) Paying for the Service.
C. Effect of Acceptance. ONCE ACCEPTED, THIS AGREEMENT TO ARBITRATE DISPUTES APPLIES TO ALL DISPUTES BETWEEN YOU AND INTERMEX REGARDLESS OF WHEN THE CIRCUMSTANCES GIVING RISE TO THE DISPUTE OCCURRED. If You have any questions, contact Intermex’s Customer Service Department to have Your questions answered.
D. Pre-Arbitration Dispute Submission. Before taking any formal action, You agree to first contact us in writing and provide a description of Your dispute, all relevant documents, and Your proposed resolution. If we are unable to resolve Your dispute within 30 days of Your notice to us, You agree to submit Your dispute to binding arbitration or small claims court as set forth in this provision. Please forward Your dispute description and documentation to Intermex at: 9480 South Dixie Highway, Miami, Florida, 33156, Attn: Compliance Department.
E. Binding Arbitration. PLEASE READ THIS SECTION CAREFULLY AS IT AFFECTS RIGHTS THAT YOU MAY OTHERWISE HAVE. IT REQUIRES THE USE OF INDIVIDUAL ARBITRATION RATHER THAN JURY TRIALS OR CLASS ACTIONS TO RESOLVE DISPUTES AND CLAIMS (INCLUDING ONES THAT ARE ALREADY THE SUBJECT OF LITIGATION). ARBITRATION IS MORE INFORMAL THAN LITIGATION BECAUSE IT USES A NEUTRAL ARBITRATOR INSTEAD OF A JUDGE OR JURY AND ALLOWS FOR LESS DISCOVERY AND LESS APPELLATE REVIEW THAN IN COURT. ARBITRATION IS BINDING AND SUBJECT TO ONLY A VERY LIMITED REVIEW BY A COURT. THIS ARBITRATION CLAUSE SHALL SURVIVE TERMINATION OF THIS AGREEMENT. YOU AGREE THAT YOU ARE AWARE THAT THERE IS NO JUDGE NOR JURY IN ARBITRATION BUT THAT AN ARBITRATOR MAY AWARD YOU THE SAME DAMAGES AND RELIEF THAT YOU MAY BE ABLE TO RECOVER IN A COURT OF LAW, SUBJECT TO THE LIMITATION OF LIABILITY IN SECTION 9 OF THIS AGREEMENT. YOU AND INTERMEX FURTHER AGREE THAT THE ARBITRATOR MUST HONOR THE TERMS OF THIS AGREEMENT. NOTWITHSTANDING THE FOREGOING, PROVIDED THAT SUCH ACTION IS WITHIN THE GOVERNING JURISDICTIONAL LIMITATIONS, EITHER PARTY MAY BRING A CLAIM ON AN INDIVIDUAL BASIS IN SMALL CLAIMS COURT OR THE SMALL CLAIMS DIVISION OF A COURT OF APPROPRIATE JURISDICTION.
F. Claims Covered by Agreement to Arbitrate Disputes. This Agreement to Arbitrate Disputes is intended to encompass all disputes or claims (whether based in contract, tort, federal statute including but not limited to the Telephone Consumer Protection Act, the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act, the Fair Credit Reporting Act, Fair and Accurate Credit Transactions Act, state statute, state common law, fraud, misrepresentation, or any other legal or equitable theory) arising out of Your relationship with Intermex and/or any interactions between You and Intermex, including but not limited to all disputes or claims arising out of or relating to the Service. References to You and Intermex include our respective suppliers, vendors, Service Providers, Service Companies, or their respective subsidiaries, officers, agents, partners, employees or consultants, predecessors in interest, successors, and assigns.
G. Severance. If any term of this Agreement to Arbitrate Disputes is to any extent invalid, illegal, or incapable of being enforced, such term shall be excluded to the extent of such invalidity, illegality, or unenforceability; all other terms herein shall remain in full force and effect.
H. Types of Relief. All claims between You and Intermex, including claims for money damages or for any kind of injunctive, declaratory or non-monetary relief, will be resolved by binding arbitration where permitted by law.
I. Delegation Provision. You and Intermex agree that the Arbitrator shall have the power to rule on his or her own jurisdiction, the existence, scope, validity and arbitrability of this Agreement. This Delegation Provision shall be deemed a contract entered into under the law of the State of Florida and will be governed by the laws of the State of Florida together with the FAA. Your agreement with Intermex to be bound by this Delegation Provision starts when You accept the terms and conditions of this User Agreement.
J. Single Arbitrator. Claims shall be heard by a single arbitrator.
K. No Class Action In Arbitration. You and Intermex agree that any arbitration will be conducted on an individual basis and not on a consolidated, class wide, or representative basis. Further, You and Intermex agree that the arbitrator may not consolidate proceedings or more than one person’s claims, and may not otherwise preside over any form of a representative or class proceeding. Each party waives the right to litigate in court or arbitrate any claim or dispute as a class action, either as a member of a class or as a representative, or to act as a private attorney general. If there is a final judicial determination that applicable law precludes enforcement of this paragraph's limitations as to a particular claim for relief, then that claim (and only that claim) must be severed from the arbitration and may be brought in court.
L. AAA Rules. The arbitration of any dispute or claim shall be conducted in accordance with the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”) Consumer Arbitration Rules (collectively, the “AAA Rules”), as modified by this agreement. The AAA Rules are available online at www.adr.org, or by calling the AAA a 1-800-778-7879.
M. Interpretation of Agreement to Arbitrate Disputes. You and Intermex agree that use of the Service evidences a transaction in interstate commerce and this arbitration provision will be interpreted and enforced in accordance with the law of the State of Florida, the FAA and federal arbitration law.
N. Arbitration Based Upon Document Submissions. For claims of $10,000 or less, You can choose to proceed with arbitration being decided on the documents submitted, without a hearing, in an effort to minimize costs and the time it may take for an arbitrator to reach his or her decision.
O. Payment of Fees In Arbitration. Absent a finding that Your demand is frivolous, brought for an improper purpose, or malicious as set forth by the standards of Federal Rule of Civil Procedure 11(b), Intermex will pay the filing, administration, and arbitrator fees of an arbitration initiated in accordance with this Agreement. If, however, the arbitrator does deem that Your demand was frivolous, was brought for an improper purpose, or was malicious under the same standard used in a court of law, payment of all fees will be divided between You and Intermex in accordance with AAA Rules. Additionally, Intermex hereby waives any right to seek its attorney’s fees from You in the event that it prevails in the arbitration, except where Your demand is deemed frivolous, brought for an improper purpose, or malicious under the standard set out above. Nothing in this section shall be construed by an arbitrator as barring an award of attorney’s fees to You, the customer, where the law would so provide. If You initiate an arbitration in which You seek more than $50,000 in damages, the payment of fees will be governed by the AAA rules.
P. Location of Arbitration. Unless You and Intermex agree otherwise and in an effort to reduce the burden of arbitration on You, the location of any arbitration shall be in the county of Your residence for those customers located within the United States. For customers residing outside of the United States, the location of arbitration shall be Miami, Florida, unless You and Intermex agree otherwise. Either or both parties may participate in the proceedings by telephone. The arbitrator shall, to the extent permitted, apply the law of Florida to resolve the underlying legal dispute and legal causes of action between You and Intermex. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary, the arbitrator shall apply the laws of the State of Florida and the FAA to interpret and enforce this arbitration provision.
Q. Class Action Waiver. If for any reason this arbitration provision is deemed inapplicable or invalid, or to the extent this arbitration provision allows for litigation of disputes in court, You and Intermex waive to the fullest extent permitted by law, (i) any right to pursue any claims on a class or consolidated basis and (ii) Your right to serve in a representative capacity in any class or consolidated basis. Neither You nor Intermex shall disclose the existence, contents, or results of any arbitration except to the extent required by law. Judgment on the award rendered may be entered by any court of competent jurisdiction.
R. Disclosure With Consent of Both Parties. Except as may be required by law, neither a party nor an arbitrator may disclose the existence, content, or results of any arbitration hereunder without the prior written consent of both parties.

YOU HAVE THE RIGHT TO OPT OUT OF THIS PROVISION COVERING DISPUTE RESOLUTION BY BINDING ARBITRATION WITHIN THE EARLIER OF 14 DAYS AFTER RECEIVING THIS USER AGREEMENT AND AGREEMENT TO ARBITRATE DISPUTES OR ANY OF THE TIMES OF ACCEPTANCE OF AGREEMENT TO ARBITRATE DISPUTES SET FORTH IN PARAGRAPHS 9(B)(ii-vi, above).

8. Waiver Of Jury Trial, Class Claims, and Governing Law
A. Waiver of Jury Trial. In the event that any claim proceeds in a court of law rather than through arbitration for any reason, You and Intermex agree that there will not be a jury trial.

You and Intermex further agree that in the event of litigation, this section of the Agreement may be filed as an exhibit illustrating a knowing and written consent of any waiver of any right to a trial by jury.
B. Waiver of Class Claims. In the event that any claim proceeds in a court of law rather than through arbitration for any reason, You and Intermex agree that any action will be conducted on an individual basis and not on a consolidated, class wide, or representative basis. Further, You and Intermex agree that the court may not consolidate proceedings or more than one person’s claims, and may not otherwise preside over any form of a representative or class proceeding. Each party waives the right to litigate in court (or arbitrate) any claim or dispute as a class action, either as a member of a class or as a representative, or to act as a private attorney general.
C. Governing Law.

A. Cancellation and Refunds. You can cancel Your Transaction for a full refund within 30 minutes of authorizing Your Transaction, unless the funds have already been paid out to the Recipient or Service Company. After 30 minutes, we generally do not provide refunds unless we did not process Your Transaction according to Your instructions or we are unable to pay out the Transaction. To request a refund, please contact Customer Service. Intermex will make every effort not to debit Your Payment Instrument after it has received Your request for cancellation. However, in some cases, Intermex may have initiated an irreversible request for funds from Your financial institution prior to receiving Your request for cancellation. In such cases, Your Payment Instrument may be debited even if You have cancelled Your Transaction but Intermex will refund Your money usually within 3 business days after we have received the funds from Your financial institution. Refunds will be credited to the same Payment Instrument used to pay for the Transaction. Refunds are only made in U.S. Dollars. Refund amounts will not be adjusted to account for changes in the value of the U.S. Dollar or foreign currency from the time Your Transaction was submitted. Notwithstanding the foregoing, residents of certain jurisdictions should read the following:
