This agreement (the “Agreement” or “Terms”) for use of the Epic Will website (the “Site”) and all services, self-help documents, forms, and templates provided by the Site (the “Platform”) is between Epic Will, LLC (also referred to herein as “Epic Will”, “we”, “us” and “our”) and the party (“You” and “your”) indicated during the account registration process (such process and the information provided during such process, as amended from time to time through your login to your account in the App in accordance with this Agreement, the “Registration”).
If you access or use the Platform on behalf of a company, organization, or other entity, then (a) “you” and “your” also refers to that entity, (b) you represent and warrant that you are an authorized representative of the entity with the authority to bind the entity to these Terms, and (c) you agree to these Terms on the entity’s behalf.

Our Platform is not a substitute for the advice of an attorney, and, if you need legal advice, you should consult a licensed attorney in your state.

YOU UNDERSTAND THAT ANY ERROR REVIEW BY EPIC WILL IS AN AUTOMATED PROCESS THAT IS LIMITED TO COMPLETENESS, SPELLING, AND FOR INTERNAL CONSISTENCY OF NAMES, ADDRESSES, AND THE LIKE. IT IS NOT COMPREHENSIVE. YOU WILL READ THE FINAL DOCUMENT(S) BEFORE SIGNING THEM AND AGREE TO BE SOLELY RESPONSIBLE FOR THE FINAL DOCUMENT(S).
4. Information Only. As part of our Platform, we offer self-help, “fill in the blank” forms. We strive to keep the forms, documents and other materials available through the Platform, including any descriptions, information and other help resources (collectively, the “Legal Forms”) current and up-to-date; however, they are not legal advice and are not guaranteed to be correct, complete or up-to-date. The law changes rapidly and is different from jurisdiction to jurisdiction and may be subject to interpretation by different courts. The law is a personal matter, and no general information, Legal Forms, or tool like the kind we provide can fit every circumstance. We do not review the information you input into a Legal Form for accuracy or legal sufficiency, draw legal conclusions, provide legal advice or apply the law to the facts of your particular situation. The Platform and the Legal Forms are made available solely for informational purposes. It is your responsibility to use and update the Legal Forms as you deem appropriate for your specific needs.

13. Dispute Resolution
A. You and Epic Will agree that any dispute, claim or controversy arising out of or relating to these Terms or the breach, termination, enforcement, interpretation or validity thereof, or to the use of the Platform or use of the Content (collectively, “Disputes”) will be settled by binding arbitration, except that each party retains the right to seek injunctive or other equitable relief in a court of competent jurisdiction to prevent the actual or threatened infringement, misappropriation or violation of a party’s copyrights, trademarks, trade secrets, patents, or other intellectual property rights. You acknowledge and agree that you and Epic Will are each waiving the right to a trial by jury or to participate as a plaintiff or class member in any purported class action or representative proceeding. Further, unless both you and Epic Will otherwise agree in writing, the arbitrator may not consolidate more than one person’s claims and may not otherwise preside over any form of any class or representative proceeding. If this specific paragraph is held unenforceable, then the entirety of this “Dispute Resolution” section will be deemed void. Except as provided in the preceding sentence, this “Dispute Resolution” section will survive any termination of these Terms.
B. Arbitration Rules and Governing Law. The arbitration will be administered by the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”) in accordance with the Commercial Arbitration Rules and the Supplementary Procedures for Consumer Related Disputes (the “AAA Rules”) then in effect, except as modified by this “Dispute Resolution” section. (The AAA Rules are available at www.adr.org or by calling the AAA at 1-800-778-7879.) The Federal Arbitration Act will govern the interpretation and enforcement of this section.
C. Arbitration Process. A party who desires to initiate arbitration must provide the other party with a written Demand for Arbitration as specified in the AAA Rules. (The AAA provides a form Demand for Arbitration) The arbitrator will be either a retired judge or an attorney licensed to practice law in the state of Tennessee and will be selected by the parties from the AAA’s roster of consumer dispute arbitrators. If the parties are unable to agree upon an arbitrator within seven (7) days of delivery of the Demand for Arbitration, then the AAA will appoint the arbitrator in accordance with the AAA Rules.
D. Arbitration Location and Procedure. Unless you and Epic Will otherwise agree, the arbitration will be conducted in Williamson County, Tennessee, or, if you reside in North Carolina, the arbitration will be conducted in North Carolina. IF YOU ARE A NORTH CAROLINA RESIDENT, YOU ARE NOT REQUIRED TO AGREE TO JURISDICTION OR VENUE IN ANY STATE OTHER THAN NORTH CAROLINA FOR THE RESOLUTION OF DISPUTES BETWEEN US AND YOU. If your claim does not exceed $10,000, then the arbitration will be conducted solely on the basis of documents you and Epic Will submit to the arbitrator, unless you request a hearing or the arbitrator determines that a hearing is necessary. If your claim exceeds $10,000, your right to a hearing will be determined by the AAA Rules. Subject to the AAA Rules, the arbitrator will have the discretion to direct a reasonable exchange of information by the parties, consistent with the expedited nature of the arbitration.
E. Arbitrator’s Decision. The arbitrator will render an award within the time frame specified in the AAA Rules. The arbitrator’s decision will include the essential findings and conclusions upon which the arbitrator based the award. Judgment on the arbitration award may be entered in any court having jurisdiction thereof. The arbitrator’s award damages must be consistent with the terms of section 12 above as to the types and the amounts of damages for which a party may be held liable. The arbitrator may award declaratory or injunctive relief only in favor of the claimant and only to the extent necessary to provide relief warranted by the claimant’s individual claim. Each party will bear its own fees and expenses. In reaching a decision, the arbitrator shall have no authority to change, extend, modify or suspend any of the terms of this Agreement, or to grant an award or remedy any greater than that which would be available from a court under the statutory or common law theory asserted.
F. Fees. Your responsibility to pay any AAA filing, administrative and arbitrator fees will be solely as set forth in the AAA Rules. However, if your claim for damages does not exceed $75,000, Epic Will will pay all such fees unless the arbitrator finds that either the substance of your claim or the relief sought in your Demand for Arbitration was frivolous or was brought for an improper purpose (as measured by the standards set forth in Federal Rule of Civil Procedure 11(b)).
