9. PACER Usage
Certain features ("PACER Features") of the Site will allow you to access information and documents from US government’s court electronic records system ("Public Access to Court Electronic Records" or "PACER").
If you use your own PACER account for these features, you will be responsible for, and billed directly by PACER for these charges. All billing disputes must be resolved directly with PACER. You agree to comply with all PACER Policies and Procedures.
You agree and hereby acknowledge that we have an unrestricted right to use any data obtained via the PACER Features, royalty free and without limitation.
10. Free Trial Periods
From time to time we may offer subscriptions on a trial basis ("Free Trial"). The Free
Trial refers to the lack of the monthly subscription fee during the trial period. You understand and agree
that you are responsible for any additional usage fees incurred during the Free Trial. You will be notified
before any action that incurs such fees. Subscription fees for your plan will start at the end of the Free Trial.
You must use our self service plan change tool to cancel your trial, or notify us in advance of the end of the Free Trial
to avoid billing.
Customers are limited to one free trial. The creation of multiple accounts to extend the free usage of our service is strictly prohibited. Failure to abide by this limitation voids the terms of any additional free trial accounts, and we reserve the right to immediately bill a subscription fee or terminate the account.
11. Fees and Payments
You may elect to subscribe to a premium plan or consume premium services. All premium plans and services require that you provide a valid credit card. Subscriptions are billed at the beginning of the subscription period and are non-refundable. Other premium service and usage fees will be billed at the end of the billing period or upon hitting a monetary threshold, at our discretion, and will charged to your credit card automatically. You agree to pay all charges (including applicable taxes) incurred in connection with your account at the rates in effect when the charges were incurred. You must notify us within 45 days if you wish to dispute any charges.
Your subscription to a premium plan will be automatically renewed at the end of each period until we terminate it or you notify us that you wish to terminate access. We may change the subscription fees and usage and services charges in effect, or add new fees or charges, by giving you notice in advance.
12. Credit Card Authorizations
When you sign up for a PacerMonitor paid subscription or occasionally thereafter, a small pre-authorization charge is made on your credit or debit card for a specific amount used to ensure your card is valid. We void that charge immediately when it's made so you are never actually charged. Pre-authorization funds can take up to 10 days to be released by your bank.

20. Choice of Law and Location for Resolving Disputes
21. Binding Arbitration
You agree that any disputes or claims that you may have against us will be (except as stated below) finally and exclusively resolved by binding arbitration. Any election to arbitrate by one party shall be final and binding on the other. The arbitration shall be commenced and conducted under the Commercial Arbitration Rules of the American Arbitration Association ("AAA") and, where appropriate, the AAA’s Supplementary Procedures for Consumer Related Disputes ("AAA Consumer Rules"), both of which are available that the AAA web site www.adr.org. The determination of whether a dispute is subject to arbitration shall be governed by the Federal Arbitration Act and determined by a court rather than an arbitrator. Your arbitration fees and your share of arbitrator compensation shall be governed by the AAA Rules and, where appropriate, limited by the AAA Consumer Rules. If such costs are determined by the arbitrator to be excessive, PacerMonitor will pay all arbitration fees and expenses. The arbitration may be conducted in person, through the submission of documents, by phone or online. The arbitrator will make a decision in writing, and will provide a statement of reasons if requested by a party. Except as otherwise provided in this Agreement, you and PacerMonitor may litigate in court to compel arbitration, stay proceeding pending arbitration, or to confirm, modify, vacate or enter judgment on the award entered by the arbitrator. YOU UNDERSTAND THAT ABSENT THIS PROVISION, YOU WOULD HAVE THE RIGHT TO SUE IN COURT AND HAVE THE RIGHT TO A JURY TRIAL.
