In connection with applications for a Term Loan, Revolving Loan or a Revenue Advance, we will usually conduct a “hard” credit check with a credit rating agency on you, your principals and any guarantors, which may affect your, your principals’ and your Guarantors’ (if any) credit ratings.

8C. Rights of US-based Guarantors under the Fair Credit Reporting Act
By applying for a Term Loan, Revolving Loan or a Revenue Advance, we will access credit reports for your company as well as for any individual guarantors. Individual guarantors to commercial financing transactions may have certain rights described below under the Fair Credit Reporting Act (“FCRA”) and other applicable law.
If an individual is serving as a guarantor (a “Guarantor”) for a commercial loan or an accounts receivable sale-purchase transaction, where a business is seeking to (a) apply to pre-qualify for financing from SellersFunding or its affiliates or sale of accounts receivable to SellersFunding or (b) apply for funding from SellersFunding or its affiliates by a loan financing or purchase of accounts receivable, to comply with the Fair Credit Reporting Act (“FCRA”) and other laws, we are providing the Guarantor with the following information:
- (1) The Guarantor must be told whether any information in his or her file has been used against him or her. If we used a credit report or some other type of consumer report to deny such Guarantor’s application for credit, we must tell the Guarantor the name, address and phone number of the credit reporting agency or credit bureau (in each case, a “consumer reporting agency”) that provided the information.
Visinger Score. We generally use our own in-house algorithm to generate a Visinger Score that is disclosed to you. However, since neither SellersFunding Corp. nor its affiliates regularly engages in whole or in part in the business of assembling or evaluating consumer credit information or other information on consumers for the purposes of furnishing consumer reports to third parties, neither SellersFunding Corp. nor its affiliates is subject to regulation as a “credit reporting agency” under the FCRA and any information or procedures followed by SellersFunding Corp. or its affiliates with respect to the Visinger Score are provided as a courtesy to you and any Guarantor and remain subject to change without notice to you or any Guarantor.
43 W 23 Street, 2nd Floor, New York, NY 10010, Attention: Operations
Experian Credit Report. We will generally use Experian in obtaining a credit report for any applications for financing or purchase of accounts receivable.
Experian Information Solutions, Inc.
P.O. Box 4500 Allen, TX 75013
In many cases, including in instances where a company has taken adverse action against the Guarantor on the basis of information in the Guarantor’s credit report, but not all cases, the disclosure will be free. All consumers are entitled to one free disclosure every month upon request from each nationwide credit bureau and from nationwide specialty consumer rating agencies. See www.consumerfinance.gov/learnmore for additional information.
- (3) The Guarantor has the right to ask for a credit score.
- (4) The Guarantor has the right to dispute incomplete or inaccurate information. If the Guarantor identifies information in his or her file that is incomplete or inaccurate and reports it to the consumer reporting agency, the agency must investigate unless the dispute is frivolous. See www.consumerfinance.gov/learnmore for an explanation of dispute procedures.
- (5) Consumer reporting agencies like Experian (not SellersFunding Corp. or its affiliates) must correct or delete inaccurate, incomplete or unverifiable information. Inaccurate, incomplete, or unverifiable information must be corrected, usually within 30 days. However, a consumer reporting agency may continue to report information it has verified as accurate.
- (6) Consumer reporting agencies like Experian (not SellersFunding Corp. or its affiliates) may not report outdated negative information. In most cases, a consumer reporting agency may not report negative information that is more than 7 years old, or bankruptcies that are more than 10 years old.
- (7) Access to your file is limited. A consumer reporting agency may provide information about you only to people with a valid need – usually to consider an application with a creditor, insurer, employer, landlord, or other business. The FCRA specifies those with a valid need for access.
- (8) You and any Guarantor may limit “prescreened” offers of credit and insurance you or any Guarantor received based on information in the relevant offeree’s credit report. Unsolicited “prescreened” offers for credit and insurance must include a toll-free phone number you or a Guarantor can call if you or a Guarantor choose to remove your name and address form the lists these offers are based on. You may opt out with the nationwide credit bureaus at 1-888-5-OPTOUT (1-888-567-8688). Guarantors may opt out of offers to such Guarantors or beneficiaries of such guarantees from SellersFunding Corp. by calling this toll-free number: (800) 243-3817.
- (9) You or a Guarantor may seek damages from violators. If a consumer reporting agency, or, in some cases, a user of consumer reports or a furnisher of information to a consumer reporting agency violates the FCRA, you or a Guarantor may be able to sue in state or federal court.

Commission’s website and FAQ on the FCRA: https://www.consumer.ftc.gov/articles/pdf-0096fair-credit-reporting-act.pdf or the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau website: www.consumerfinance.gov/learnmore or write to: Consumer Financial Protection Bureau, 1700 G Street, N.W., Washington, DC 20552.
8D. Rights of UK-based Guarantors under the Consumer Credit Act
Considering that SellersFunding may pull a consumer credit report on a UK-based Guarantor as part of completing its process on Background Checks, SellersFunding is committed to comply with the Principles of Reciprocity established by the Steering Committee on Reciprocity (SCOR), which “is a cross industry forum made up of representatives from credit industry trade associations, credit industry bodies and credit reference agencies” located in the UK. (http://www.scoronline.co.uk/) SCOR defines the Principles of Reciprocity as “a set of guidelines governing the sharing of personal credit performance and related data via the closed user groups of the credit reference agencies, currently Experian, Equifax and TransUnion and niche credit reference agency CoreLogic Teletrack.” (http://www.scoronline.co.uk/principles)
SellersFunding, as a subscriber to receive consumer credit reports from credit reference agencies located in the UK whilst in alignment with the Principles of Reciprocity, is expected to contribute the same credit performance level data that it receives from credit reference agencies. “The main thrust of the Principles of Reciprocity is that data are shared only for the prevention of over-commitment, bad debt, fraud and money laundering and to support debt recovery and debtor tracing, to aid responsible lending.” (http://www.scoronline.co.uk/principles)
Guarantors have certain rights that they can seek in relation to the personal data held by credit reference agencies; hence, they should further refer to Experian’s Information Notice (SellersFunding’s current consumer credit reporting agency in the UK) at https://www.experian.co.uk/crain/ for further information on how data will be treated as part of the credit reporting process. For additional inquiries, please contact Experian directly at their Web address: https://www.experian.co.uk/consumer/contact-us/index.html or via Post at: Experian Limited, PO BOX 9000, Nottingham, NG80 7WP or via Phone at: 0344 481 0800 or 0800 013 8888.

- Customer Disputes and Mandatory Arbitration
Most customer concerns can be resolved quickly and to the customer's satisfaction by calling our customer service department at +1-929-229-2252. In the event that our customer service department is unable to resolve a complaint you may have to your satisfaction (or if we have not been able to resolve a dispute it has with you after attempting to do so informally),
SellersFunding Corp. and you each agree to resolve those disputes exclusive by (A) contacting and interacting with our customer service department first, (B) failing a satisfactory resolution of your dispute, following the procedure set forth in the next paragraph below, and (C) failing a satisfactory resolution, through binding arbitration in accordance with the Arbitration Agreement below, instead of in courts of general jurisdiction.
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 than in court, and is subject to very limited review by courts. Arbitrators can award the same damages and relief that a court can award. Any arbitration under this Agreement will take place on an individual basis; class arbitrations and class actions are not permitted.
(“AAA”) in accordance with its Commercial Arbitration Rules (the “Rules”).
- This Agreement to arbitrate is intended to be broadly interpreted. It includes, but is not limited to:
- claims arising out of or relating to any aspect of the relationship between us, whether based in contract, tort, statute, fraud, misrepresentation or any other legal theory;
- claims that arose before this or any prior agreement (including, but not limited to, claims relating to advertising);
- claims that are currently the subject of purported class action litigation in which you are not a member of a certified class; and
- claims that may arise after the termination of this Agreement.
- For purposes of this Arbitration Agreement, references to “SellersFunding”, “you”, and “us” include our respective subsidiaries, affiliates, agents, employees, predecessors in interest, successors, and assigns, as well as all authorized or unauthorized users or beneficiaries of any Services provided to you under this or prior agreements between us. Notwithstanding the foregoing, this Arbitration Agreement does not preclude you from bringing issues to the attention of federal, state, or local agencies. Such agencies, can, if the law allows, seek relief against us on your behalf. This Agreement does, however, preclude each party from pursuing court
action regarding any such agency claims. YOU AGREE THAT, BY ENTERING INTO THIS AGREEMENT, YOU AND SELLERSFUNDING ARE EACH WAIVING
THE RIGHT TO A TRIAL BY JURY OR TO PARTICIPATE IN A CLASS ACTION
(WHETHER IN COURT OR ARBITRATION). You acknowledge and agree that this
Agreement evidences a transaction in interstate commerce, and thus the Federal Arbitration Act governs the interpretation and enforcement of this provision. This arbitration provision shall survive termination of this Agreement, and your use of this Site.
- Such arbitration shall be held before a single arbitrator, to be selected in accordance with the Rules, provided, that, the arbitrator that shall be selected and shall conduct himself or herself as independent and impartial in all matters relating to the arbitration. The arbitrator shall administer and conduct any arbitration in a manner consistent with the Rules. The AAA’s rules are available at www.adr.org. A form for initiating arbitration proceedings is available on the AAA’s website at http://www.adr.org.
The arbitrator shall have sole and exclusive authority to resolve all claims covered by this Agreement, and any dispute relating to the interpretation, applicability, enforceability or formation of this Agreement, including, but not limited to, any claim that all or any part of this Agreement is void or voidable. The arbitrator shall have the power to decide any motions brought by any party to the arbitration, including motions for summary judgment and/or adjudication and motions to dismiss and demurrers, prior to any arbitration hearing. The arbitrator shall have the authority to grant any relief authorized by law, including injunctive relief. Any issues involving the arbitrability of a dispute shall be governed by the Federal Arbitration Act (the “FAA”). Judgment upon the award rendered by the arbitrator may be entered by any court having jurisdiction thereover. The place of arbitration shall be in the borough of Manhattan in New York, New York. The applicable governing law will be as set forth in Section 25 (Entire Agreement; Applicable Law and Non-Waiver of SellersFunding’s Rights) (provided, that, with respect to arbitrability issues, United States federal arbitration law will govern). The arbitrator shall not be bound by rulings in prior arbitrations involving different SellersFunding users.
If the value of the relief sought is $25,000 or less, you or SellersFunding may elect to have the arbitration conducted by telephone or based solely on written submissions, which election shall be binding on you and SellersFunding subject to the arbitrator’s discretion to require an in-person hearing, if the circumstances warrant. Attendance at an in-person hearing may be made by telephone by you and/or SellersFunding, unless the arbitrator requires otherwise.
- Notwithstanding any other provision in this Agreement to the contrary, the parties expressly agree that the arbitrator shall have absolutely no authority to award consequential, incidental, special, treble, exemplary or punitive damages of any type under any circumstances regardless of whether such damages may be available under Delaware law, the FAA, the Rules or any other applicable laws (unless such damages are a part of a third-party claim for which a Person is entitled to indemnification hereunder). In the event of any conflict between Delaware law and the FAA, the FAA shall prevail.
- Notwithstanding this Agreement to arbitrate or anything to the contrary in this Agreement, nothing shall bar a party from seeking temporary and emergent injunctive
relief from a court of competent jurisdiction in aid of arbitration in emergent circumstances, including but not limited to circumstances involving the improper dissemination or other misuse of intellectual property.
- The fees and expenses of the arbitrators shall, in the first instance, be borne equally by each Disputing Party, but, provided, that, the prevailing party in general any arbitration shall be entitled to recover its reasonable attorney’ fees and court costs from the non-prevailing party in such arbitration, and, the decision of the arbitrators will include such award of the arbitrators’ expenses and of other costs to the prevailing side as the arbitrator reasonably determines.
- The arbitrator’s decision and award must be in writing stating the arbitrator’s essential findings and conclusions upon which any award is based, and will follow the terms of this Agreement, as applicable, and shall be binding upon all of the parties to the Dispute and final and non-appealable to the maximum extent permitted by law, and judgment thereon may be entered in a court of competent jurisdiction and enforced by any party to the Dispute as a final judgment of such court. A party’s right for review of the arbitrator’s decision is limited to grounds provided under applicable law. The arbitrator will have authority to award temporary, interim or permanent injunctive relief or relief providing for specific performance of this Agreement, but only to the extent necessary to provide relief warranted by the individual claim before the arbitrator.
- YOU AND SELLERSFUNDING AGREE THAT EACH MAY BRING CLAIMS
AGAINST THE OTHER ONLY IN YOUR OR ITS INDIVIDUAL CAPACITY, AND
NOT AS A PLAINTIFF OR CLASS MEMBER IN ANY PURPORTED CLASS OR
REPRESENTATIVE PROCEEDING. Further, unless both you and
SellersFunding agree otherwise, the arbitrator may not consolidate more than one person's claims, and may not otherwise preside over any form of a representative or class proceeding. If this specific proviso is found to be unenforceable, then the entirety of this arbitration provision shall be null and void.
- The award rendered by the arbitrator may be confirmed and enforced in any court having jurisdiction thereof.
- Purchaser and Seller irrevocably and unconditionally waive, to the fullest extent permitted by applicable law, any objection that either may now or hereafter have to the laying of venue of any action or proceeding arising out of or relating to this Agreement or any other document executed in connection herewith in any arbitral tribunal referred to above. Each of the parties hereto irrevocably waives, to the fullest extent permitted by applicable law, the defense of an inconvenient forum to the maintenance of such action or proceeding in any such arbitral tribunal.
- Each party hereto irrevocably consents to service of process in the manner provided for notices in Section 26 (Notices) . Nothing in this Agreement will affect the right of any party hereto to serve process in any other manner permitted by applicable law. The Notice must (A) describe the nature and basis of the claim or dispute; and (B) set forth the specific relief sought (“Demand”). If SellersFunding and you do not reach an agreement to resolve the claim within thirty- (30-) days after the Notice is received, you or SellersFunding may commence an arbitration proceeding. During the arbitration, the amount of any settlement offer made by SellersFunding or you shall not be disclosed to the arbitrator until after the arbitrator determines the amount, if any, to which you or SellersFunding is entitled.
- Notwithstanding any provision in this Agreement to the contrary, we agree that if SellersFunding makes any future change to this arbitration provision (other than a change to the Notice Address) during the period of time that you are visiting our Site or receiving Services from SellersFunding, you may reject any such change by sending us written notice pursuant to Section 26 (Notices) within thirty (30) days of the change to the Arbitration Notice Address provided above. By rejecting any future change, you are agreeing that you will arbitrate any dispute between us in accordance with the language of this provision.
- No information concerning any arbitration may be unilaterally disclosed by to any third party by any participating party unless it is required to do so by law or by a competent governmental, authority, regulatory or self-regulatory body and then only: (i) by disclosing no more than is legally required, and (ii) furnishing to the arbitrator and all participating parties details of the disclosure and an explanation and reason for it.
- IF FOR ANY REASON A CLAIM PROCEEDS IN COURT RATHER THAN IN ARBITRATION, EACH OF THE PARTIES HEREBY WAIVES THE RIGHT TO A JURY TRIAL.
- Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in this Agreement or in any other agreement by and between you and SellersFunding, nothing in this Agreement or in any other agreement by and between you and SellersFunding shall affect any right that the SellersFunding may otherwise have to bring any action or proceeding relating to this Agreement or in any other agreement by and between you and SellersFunding against you or any of your respective properties in the courts of any jurisdiction.

You agree that: (i) our Site shall be deemed solely based in New York, New York, USA; and (ii) our Site shall be deemed a passive website that does not give rise to personal jurisdiction over SellersFunding Corp. or any of its affiliates or service providers, either specific or general, in jurisdictions other than New York.
This Agreement and the resolution of any claim or dispute related to this Agreement or our Site shall be governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of the State of Delaware, the United States of America, together with the Federal Arbitration Act and other applicable federal law, without giving effect to any principles of conflicts of law. In the event of any conflict between the Federal Arbitration Act and Delaware law, the Federal Arbitration Act shall prevail. Subject to Section 24 (Customer Disputes and Mandatory Arbitration), any legal action or proceeding between SellersFunding or its affiliates, on the one hand, and you, on the other hand, related to the Agreement shall be brought exclusively in a state or federal court of competent jurisdiction sitting in the State of Delaware, United States, and you agree to submit to the personal and exclusive jurisdiction of such courts and to waive any defenses of inconvenient forum.
This choice of law provision is only intended to specify the use of Delaware law to interpret this Agreement and is not intended to create any substantive right to a non-Delaware resident’s ability to assert claims under Delaware law whether by statute, common law, or otherwise.
Our failure to require your performance of any provision hereof shall not affect our full right to require such performance at any time thereafter, nor shall our waiver of a breach of any provision hereof be taken or held to be a waiver of the provision itself.
Unless otherwise specified in this Agreement, all notices under Agreement will be in writing and will be deemed to have been duly given when received, if personally delivered or sent by certified or registered mail, return receipt requested; when receipt is electronically confirmed, if transmitted by facsimile or email; or the day after it is sent, if sent for next day delivery by recognized overnight delivery service.
Written notice may be sent via first-class mail to SellersFunding Corp., 43 W 23 Street, 2nd Floor, New York, NY 10010, Attention: Operations, or via e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org. You agree that we may send notices to you regarding your use of our Site by means of electronic mail, a general notice posted on our Site, or by written communication delivered either by overnight courier or U.S. mail to your email or mailing address as appearing in our records from time to time.
